AND ALL THIS TIME I THOUGHT THE “DARK AGES” WERE “DARK”. BOY, WAS I WRONG…
I’ve been reading “The Genesis of Science: How the Christian Middle Ages Launched the Scientific Revolution” by James Hannam, Ph.D. in physics & history, Oxford & Cambridge Universities.
I’ve always been under the impression that the Middle Ages were “Dark”. Hence, the phrase “Dark Ages.” But would you believe that’s a misnomer?
The Middle Ages Were Certainly Not “Dark”. Read on….
Dr. Hannam writes, “If you were taught that the Middle Ages were a time of intellectual stagnation, superstition, and ignorance, you were taught a myth that has been utterly refuted by modern scholarship. Without the scholarship of the Middle Ages, modern science would not exist.
“The Middle Ages were a time of one intellectual triumph after another. The people of medieval Europe invented spectacles, the mechanical clock, the windmill, and the blast furnace by themselves. Lenses and cameras, almost all kinds of machinery, and the industrial revolution itself all owe their origins to the forgotten inventors of the Middle Ages.”

QUOTE(s) of the WEEK
“A common sense interpretation of the facts suggests that a super-intellect has monkeyed with physics, as well as with chemistry and biology, and that there are no blind forces worth speaking about in nature. The numbers one calculates from the facts seem to me so overwhelming as to put this conclusion almost beyond question.” – Physicist (and atheist) Sir Fred Hoyle
