But you see, religion was much more relevant when those amazing structures were built. Back then, the existence of deities/gods was the best way they had to explain how the universe works. People of every religion toiled for years in every corner of the globe to show appreciation for the forces of our universe, which they interpreted as god(s). Both of these structures are absolutely amazing, each in their own way.

One is designed to be beautiful and the other is designed to be functional. Comparing them doesn't make sense.

I mean architecturally wise, it's true. The greatest structures man has built until recent times have been related to worship/religious roles, or at least assumed to be so by archeologists. But anyways, point is this post is kind of dumb.

It definitely can, but occasionally things need to modernize, we cant cling the the same views of 2000 years ago. It's just inevitable that knowledge of how the world works would improve since then.

I do believe in something out there myself, but I wont let it stop me from going forward. If science proves my religion wrong, my religion will have to change

You're a ******* asshole... Christianity in most cases was there just to balance power, not to let a leader of a certain country get out of hand (not always). Yes it's pretty stupid that it had to be religion to do somethign like that... but it wasn't christianity that mind slaved the middle east, invaded the east successfully and planned and attempted to invade Europe countless times killing milling millions on their attempts only to set their ridiculous mind control faggotry. Don't come up with "oh but crusades this blabalbal" they were necessary in most cases, not for any religious purpose but to keep "mudslims" at bay.

Religion didn't cause those wars, people did. Even as an atheist it's hard to deny that religion was used as the justification for some truly awful things, but the underlying reasons behind those things weren't rooted in religion nearly as much as they were in people seeking more power.

What defines a structure to be great? Aesthetics are subjective to the viewer. Functionality is subjective to the user and how the user utilizes or wants to utilize the structure. The religious people here will argue that the churches and stuff built are better while the atheist will believe that ISS and other science based structures are better. The greatness in a structure depends on the individual viewer so the only thing there is to argue is that the above statement is false.

Also, people make buildings, not religion or science.

Tubes. Thats all the ISS is. Why not make something as cool as the base in Star Trek? Because there is still the problem of priorities of funding.

If the Star Trek starbase were created, i would be training for NASA as soon as possible.

Except that the Greeks used those buildings for law, because they though law was the highest calling of mankind. Catholic churches stole them because they looked nice.



So yeah, hooray for science.

gotta appreciate the art work and detail put into the structures... however its the architect and the designers who built it with tax money... religion doesn't have anything to do with beautiful architect

I don't think they put that building together with bibles and faith.

yep, because religion, and religion alone, builds cathedrals. The other day I built my buddy a house by praying ten hail marys.
