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.

I like old school churches and cathedrals. Something with history to it. Then you see some of the abominations that are modern day religious buildings and I think wtf.

Side note, I know someone who was working on the foundatioms of a new mosque and they put a packet of pork svratchings into the cement...

*sigh* Think back 200/300 years ago when religion was the more 'Believable' theory on life and what not, the guys took effort to make these buildings the greatest to impress their god(s) so in which case they were not made to go into space thus they didnt have much technology

200/300 years ago? In what universe were people still doing that 300 years ago. Most documented construction of religious buildings have nothing to do with trying to impress gods. We have records that show the majority of famous archticture was built for the ruler / person who paid to have it done, IE Hagia Sophia, Taj Mahal, Pyramids. Do you people even take history in middle school anymore?

And you can confirm that religion did not influence anyone's work on science, much like how science made the intricate design of the religious building possible? I may be a non-believer, but some of you guys can be edgy as ****.

Science was used to build both structures... The difference is that the religious structure is built for religion, and the satelite is built for science.   
Science comes from the latin word for knowledge, thus, science is used to build both   
   
Now, please stop trying to piss of each other, yes, that goes for religious people as well, you're no better    
   
Sorry for generalizing, this criticism is only directed towards the ones who deserve it

"Greatest structures" Hurrdurr a concrete building that does literally nothing but house people and other things. Ok that is a great building, but the ISS has much better use, and has brought technology further than a cathedral could ever have done.

There is thousands of things that science created, millions in fact. Yet all religion does is just cause wars. ******* christian assholes

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.

You know, many people from my country blamed the former dictator, Ceausescu, for razing a part of the Old Historical Center to build the 2nd biggest itemsistrative building in the world, many people being forced into labor and the national debt went sky-high for this monstrous gargantuan...

...But we do have the 2nd biggest itemsistrative building in the world...

Not something to be particularly proud of, considering the sacrifices most of the citizens had to suffer... Not to mention NO ONE of the big players agree with an economically independent country, which I truly believe was a part of the reasons '89 was 80% an "outside job".
I'm not a communist melancholist, not by a long shot. But I do give credit to where credit is due.

But anywhore, it was about megalomaniac buildings created for an egotistical purposes...

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.

Go look at the amazing architecture and decoration of st. peters cathedral and try and tell me that the space station will inspire the same awe and last nearly as long.

Sure. It's a symbol that you can live in space. You can live in SPACE. Not some giant ass building a rich man had built for "religion"(or greed that could have gone towards poor people). SPACE. The final frontier. That before ever-impossible place to go! Who gives a **** about a giant building? Anyone can make that. Skyscrapers, art museums, anything. But not everyone can make something that goes to SPACE! Other planets! See the earth not from it! Look at the stars first hand! Float around! Possible new homes when **** hits the fan! Completely driven by human ingenuity!

It's not even on Earth anymore! How is that not completely awe inspiring? We've made a way to do the impossible. Where is your imagination? Think of all the possibilities in space! If we can survive in space, what can't we do?

The building in the picture on the top will still be standing long after the space station tumbles back towards Earth.

So tired of this pedestrian religion bashing. Just as annoying as Christians shoving their beliefs down your throat. Thumbed down.

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.
