Hi i want to compile a list of things religion tried to prevent or suppress because a theist tried to tell me wed have no civilisation without religion. He said religion helped us grow but i know it hindered us.
So add anything i missed but please only things you know for a fact are true.
1. Religion tried to prevent dissection of the human body which would have effectively left medicine in the dark ages.
2. Religion tried to suppress Galileo's discovery that the planets revolved around the sun and not the earth as they said.
3. Religion tried to suppress the translation of the bible from latin to english to hold on to their control of the masses. They executed the man that translated it fir heresy and perverting the word of god yet his version is what modern bibles are based on.
4. Evolution need i say more.
