    Great idea, since I was planning to post a long historical essay on how the Catholic Church contributed to the rise of science and science education, and in fact is the root of scientific investigation and logic in western culture. Science would never have progressed if it had been left to pagans and atheists; they would have been too busy looting and murdering to create any stable educational institutions and the type of cultures that would allow science to thrive at all. See all the 'discoveries' made by the Chinese's alleged 'advanced culture and knowledge that went nowhere until developed and made useful by western Christian university science researchers and engineers.

    How do you discuss HISTORY without RELIGION, they are intimately intertwined.
    The primary book of history is the Bible, even though so many dispute the fact it has been Archeologically supported many times.
    There are also events that took place solely because of religious tenets and arguments.
    The inquisitions are one such event that comes to mind.
    The war between predominately Catholic and Protestants MOSTLY in Northern Ireland in near history ETC.

    Sorry but I cant see any real history of even a single family on earth that has not been somehow affected by some religious sect.

    EVEN scientific history would require a religious background thesis.

    The Spanish Inquisition were mainly about politics and removing existential threats to the Spanish Crown after the Reconquest, not just 'religion', though religion was a factor in determining one's politics when Muslims and their Jewish allies were involved, but it wasn't solely about religion. Same for the Portuguese Inquisition, and the Roman Inquisition didn't actually kill hardly anyone, and was the only one solely about religion, or almost so.

    Most don't realize the Roman one lasted until well into the 19th Century.

    We can create a rule: no mention of God in the history forum.

    History is a social science.

    What I am saying is what would you use as a basis for history? What book, or narrative would you use? GOD is not a religion.

    I am not trying to be confrontational or support any religious belief in this, it is a fact that historically Religious groups have used religion as the basis for a lot of actions they took.

    The Bible has many historical places and events that were called Myths in it that have been verified as actual events and places by archeological findings and records.

    The history as seen and written by those who lived through it has become a problem for many of the latter day historians and they have rewritten it to suit their own agenda. Any history book written after the 1920s is most likely very lacking in the actual events unless it is a direct testimony of the people who lived through the event.
    A case in point would be the Death camps and the gas chambers suffered by the Jewish people at the hands of the war machine of Germany before and after WWII.

    ES IS ZU VIEL!!!

    DANKE!
    THERE can be only ONE!
