Ocasio-Cortez Responds To New Zealand Church Shooting By "Attacking" People Of Faith

The first books printed were Bibles. The Gutenberg Bible, to be exact.

The printing press was adapted from a wine press by combining it with block printing developed by the Chinese, a technology described by Marco Polo.

The Church SUBSIDIZED the printing of books.

 

You are assuming that every member of the clergy believed and preached the same dogma. This is not true.

Martin Luther was a priest that used the printing press to reform the church.

With Luther came public dissent, and only then was science actually possible.

 

 

I don't see how any of that substantiates religion being any sort of prerequisite for universities or science.  At best it was coincidental and at worst a hindrance.

 

If religion had never existed, we'd be lightyears ahead in technology by now.
