Distilling liquids? Creation of aqueducts? Basic medicinal procedures? So effectively you think science is 300 years old? LMAO.
So what if science was repressed? It still happens. Paedophiles are hated by every nation and society in the world (probably some exception somewhere.) Punishable by prison or death for the most minor infraction. It still happens...
-The examples you give involve deductive and inductive reasoning. (e.g. I rub two sticks together, that makes heat, heat makes fire... rub sticks together to make fire)
-Your previous post was clearly discussing the philosophical nature of science, a construct of thinking only prevalent in the last 300 years. This construct arose from the industrial and social revolutions in Europe around the 17th and 18th centuries. So if you want to argue that reasoning skills were being employed before the appearance of empiricism go ahead, I won't disagree with you. But if you want to argue about the philosophical ramifications of scientific ideologies from more than 300 years ago I am going to have to say you are simply unable to adhere to logical thinking and possess little reasoning skills. I can't discuss Christianity in Ancient Greece and I can't discuss the philosophies of science from more than 300 years ago. I am beginning to think you don't even know what science is, and thus I have been wasting my time.
-pedophilia was openly practiced (and encouraged) in ancient Greece among a large portion of the population, how many pedophiles do you know now? See; social movements, norms, customs, taboo, social control. And comparing private sexual impulses to the public scrutiny of society is a horrible analogy, one is meant to be kept secret, one is not.
