How advanced could humanity be if theism never came into existence?
When I think about it, religion in the past really stifled technological growth by oppressing people and keeping them from sharing scientific knowledge and keeping people from sharing new ideas. For example, when Galileo stated that the earth does around the sun, the church threatened to hang him. That just isn't right. If religion never existed, how technologically advanced could humanity be by now? Could we be interplanetary? Could we be interstellar? Could we already have AI's? The questions go on.
