This is just not true. Charles Darwin who formulated the theory that we now know as Evolution was born in 1809. In 1214, Franciscan Friar Roger Bacon was born. He developed the Scientific Method. All scientists owe him for his invention of the Scientific Method.
This method is still used today to find answers empirically by following certain steps in order to reach a conclusion based on evidence acquired. The steps are then repeated in order to see if one gets the same or different results.
Darwin himself used this method! So did Einstein, even renown Physicists of today such as Steven Hawkings, Micchio Kaku, Alexei Filippenko. If it wasn't for Friar Bacon, Darwin would not have had this method to use and the many theories on Evolution would have never existed. Moreover, many scientific studies and discoveries would not have been made.
The Catholic Church is the Mother of Western Science as we know it. It is funny to see Atheists try to lay claim to Science, but that field belongs to Holy Mother Church. The Vatican even has its own observatory and advanced scientific labs and libraries!
I enjoy reading Rosa's blog, but had to respond to this gaffe. I hope Rosa corrects it and/or clarifies better what the post really meant to say.
