A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the forum....

A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the forum....
So I was on my to a drug forum pharmacy, this theist gets in line and argues that Atheism and Science wouldn't exist without Christianity. Look at all the Science philosophers etc. such as Aristotle and many others in early Science were theists. She also claims Atheism is only good b/c all of the roots stem from Christianity, such Great Britain, founded on it, America founded by it, not on it. This lady had me thinking and it really bothers me, is she right? She says also American Slavery was horrific but that all of us were part of slavery throughout history, is this lady a fox news host? LOL, just let me know how you guys feel about it.

Christianity is 2000 years old at the most. The Ancient Greek philosophers, scientists, and the like lived and died centuries before Christianity was invented.

This woman is a moron.
Sanity adjacent.

No. Atheism is the primoradial, healthy and uncontaminated state of all cognition on earth.   Theism is a ruthless self-serving bacillus that subverts the will of its victims and bend all that is good and has real potential for collective growth towards its own aggrandizement.

That is bullshit.  Humans evolved to be curious and seek patterns in life. Every religion has followers who like to claim their religion invented science. 

Google search, "Jewish science" then google search "Hindu science" then google search "Muslim science" then google search "Buddhist science". 

Our species ability to make discoveries and invent things is in our evolution, not any religion. We can also observe other mammals and primates figuring things out and even using rocks and sticks to get at food. 

Scientific method is completely independent from any religion. It is why a computer will work in Japan, Iran and Brazil. It is why the flu vaccine will work in France and Saudi Arabia.

Do you truly have nothing better to do with your life, you stinky, stinky, old and boring sock?

While few monks here and there made few discoveries we can safely say that Christianity is against freethinking and ultimately science.
I mean many theologians from Aquinas on advocated the killing of heretics, hardly an endorsement of freethinking. So this is not just against freethinking but Christians actually disrupted freethinking for centuries.

Martin Luther was famous for his attacks on reason. Besides persecuting Galileo and Giordano Bruno for their heresies, some of which involved science, and burning Bruno alive, the Catholic Church burned books and maintained infamous Index Librorum Prohibitorum, which for four centuries protected its flock from thinking. That included science, for the list included works by Kepler, Francis Bacon, Erasmus Darwin, Copernicus, and Galileo.

So please answer me this: Why would an institution that promoted science make it a sin to read books by scientists?

And why would an institution in favor of free inquiry ban philosophy books by Pascal, Hobbes, Spinoza, and Hume?

Why did they destroy so many ancient books? A lot of times they erased them to write Bible on them.

Also Catholic Church famously condemned the University of Paris in 1277 for teaching 219 philosophical, theological, and scientific "errors."

I think this pretty much sums up your issue, buddy.

Maybe I can help. My advice is to try thinking a whole bunch (like marathon levels) and see if you can't somehow become acclimated to it.

If (after trying the "thought marathon" strategy) you find that thinking still arouses "bothersome" reactions, just give up. Go bask in the comfortable sun rays of fundamentalist doctrine. You tried. No one can fault you for not putting in the effort. Well, I suppose your new fundamentalist buddies might fault you for it... but nobody else will.
