One has to wonder where humanity would be now if not for the incredible retarding effect of organised religion and the dark age it perpetrated (and its continued influence against scientific thought). The religious establishment has so many injustices (beyond just stifling science) to answer for.

My post was supposed to include a picture from a Galileo museum exhibition talking about his life-long house arrest by the church and the burning at the stake of a fellow philosopher who presumably refused to recant his statements.

@lightweight Probably still in caves. Or all over the galaxy.

It's hard to tell. Yeah, the period you point at was bad, but a lot of science was done to make religious monuments in the millennia before that.

Changing one thing changes everything.
