Benefits of Christianity
I pressured a theist to explain what benefit Christianity had on society. Here's his quote
Benefits of Christianity throughout history:
The personal transformation of billions of human beings
The preservation of the western world against the Islamic world and paganism
Some of the greatest art in existence
Some of the greatest music in existence
Some of the best literature in existence
The foundation of the political ideas for individual life, liberty, equality, exercise of conscience, understanding of human nature in terms of the need for checks and balances, and the mportance of the rule of law, applicabl to all regardless of status
The moral underpinnings for charitable organizations, including two of the largest in the world - the Red Cross and the Salvation army
The foundation of thousands of hospitals
The foundation of countless schools, colleges, and universities, some of which ar the most reknown schools of all time
The ending of slavery
The foundation of scientific exploration
That's a short list.
What about atheism; what has it been responsible for?
What do you guys think? I think the most ridicolous one is "the foundation of scientific exploration". The "preservation against islamic world and paganism" is quite phobic tbh.
