Religious Discoveries

A while back I wrote a post about an article I found in a blog entitled "Why Evolution is True". In this article the writer was pinning a list of scientific discoveries against what he called "religious discoveries".  His point was that religion has never produced anything useful for humanity. My post generated some very interesting twitter conversations about contributions of religious thinkers to the sciences; Lemaitre's Big Bang theory and Cantor's transfinite numbers work have been my favorite examples for this.

Today from the Vatican I can add another to the list. I'm sure many anthropologists are going to be looking at this very closely.

Here is the link for the complete article
