Dawn of the American Empire
#28
stroll Wrote:"Allowed to evolve"???
I seem to remember people being tortured and murdered for disagreeing with the church and scientific discoveries, wars ravaging the continent over interpretations of the bible and the practise of different brands of Christianity.

You would have to be centuries old to "remember"such times.

And where did this enlightenment and rationalism emerge? We are still waiting for it here in the Islamic parts of the world but we appear to be going the other direction.
