Luckily, now there's an economic crisis, so we're starting incinerating plants over here in italy too.

We're not starting, we have more than 50 incineration plants. The incinerator in Brescia has been burning trash and warming homes since 1998. It even won the WTERT industry award in 2006.

Why don't you get your facts straight before commenting?

Jesus did say a few things that, when taken out of context, can be thought of as anti-marriage or anti-family, but most of those were metaphors for other things.

LOL... so typical of christians! Jesus and/or the Bible say something inconsistent or just plain wrong? Hey, that's a metaphor! It doesn't mean what's written, it means something else that is right or acceptable!

This is NOT "Conway's game of life". I rushed frantically to TFA in disbelief, only to be disappointed.

Are your misleading titles and summaries a pathetic attempt to prove you can still pull a "slashdot effect" on sites nowadays?

Be warned, your readership's patience is not endless. Mine certainly isn't.

The church held a monopoly because nobody else was interested.

The reason why they had a monopoly has nothing to do with my point. They did, and that spurred the consequences I'm discussing.

Why don't you do yourself a favour and just admit to yourself that you have prejudice and that your fear of religion is based on ignorance?

You're wrong on all counts. First of all, I have no "fear of religion". Contempt is more like it. It's not based on ignorance, because I know the christian religion better than 95% of christians (and that percentage comes from personal experience). Lastly, it's not based on prejudice, but on factual evaluation of the many failures of religion vs. logic and science.

I cannot argue you into changing your mind.

That's right, you can't. And that's because your belief has no rational basis.

You seem to have a problem with cause-effect relationships. The monks were the only chroniclers because the church held a monopoly on education. Probably, without the church's monopoly, there would have been non-religious chroniclers who would have reported the facts without religious interpretations.

Your ineptitude at logic reasoning is showing.
