Response to Thats my opinion (Reply #78)

82. You aren't making a key connection here.

The church was the only place that controlled knowledge for a long time in Western civilization. If you wanted to be literate and study anything, being part of the church was the only way you could do it. There simply were no other options, thanks in part to... that same church! Go figure!

So your claim that "Religion made scientific advances possible" comes with a rather significant asterisk.
