One of today’s popular myths is that science and religion are incompatible. People who promote this myth obviously don’t know the history of science, as today’s modern science is a direct result of Christianity. In this talk, Dr. Wile demonstrates how Medieval Christianity provided not only the metaphysical assumptions necessary for science to flourish, but also the institutional support that science needed to progress. He also shows that in countries where the Medieval Christian Church did not have a strong presence, science could not advance. Along the way, he destroys several other myths, such as the nonsensical idea that the Medieval Christian Church thought the earth was flat.
