"Well, yes. I believe that children’s souls are the inheritors of historical memory from previous generations. It’s just that as they grow older and experience the everyday world that memory sinks lower and lower. I feel I need to make a film that reaches down to that level. If I could do that I would die happy."
He really need to do that film
Let’s see if this is actually true. ALL of the following men where Roman Catholic priests:
- Francesco Castracane degli Antelminelli (1817–1899) – Botanist who was one of the first to introduce microphotography into the study of biology
- Roger Bacon (c. 1214–1294) – Significant contributions to mathematics and optics; forerunner of modern scientific method
- Eugenio Barsanti (1821–1864) – Possible inventor of the internal combustion engine
- Daniello Bartoli (1608–1685) – Bartoli and fellow Jesuit astronomer Niccolò Zucchi are credited as probably having been the first to see the equatorial belts on the planet Jupiter
- Paolo Boccone (1633–1704) – Cistercian botanist who contributed to the fields of medicine and toxicology
- Anselmus de Boodt (1550–1632) – One of the founders of mineralogy
- Theodoric Borgognoni (1205–1298) – Medieval Surgeon who made important contributions to antiseptic practice and anaesthetics
- Christopher Borrus (1583–1632) – Mathematician and astronomy who made observations on the magnetic variation of the compass
- Roger Joseph Boscovich (1711–1787) – formulation of modern atomic theory, important contributions to astronomy
- Thomas Bradwardine (c. 1290–1349) – Mathematician who contributed to mean speed theorem; one of the Oxford Calculators
- Jean Buridan (c. 1300 – after 1358) – Early ideas of momentum and inertial motion; sowed the seeds of the Copernican revolution in Europe
- Jean Baptiste Carnoy (1836–1899) – Founder of the science of cytology
- Bonaventura Cavalieri (1598–1647) – He is known for his work on the problems of optics and motion, work on the precursors of infinitesimal calculus, and the introduction of logarithms to Italy. Cavalieri’s principle in geometry partially anticipated integral calculus
- Charles-Michel de l’Épée (1712–1789) – Known as the “father of the deaf” and established the world’s first free school for the deaf
- Václav Prokop Diviš (1698–1765) – Studied the lightning rod independent of Franklin; constructed the first electrified musical instrument in history
- Jean-Charles de la Faille (1597–1652) – Jesuit mathematician who determined the center of gravity of the sector of a circle for the first time
- Andrew Gordon (Benedictine) (1712–1751) – Benedictine monk, physicist, and inventor who made the first electric motor
- Marin Mersenne (1588–1648) – Philosopher, mathematician, and music theorist who is often referred to as the “father of acoustics”
- Robert Grosseteste (c. 1175 – 1253) – One of the most knowledgeable men of the Middle Ages; has been called “the first man to write down a complete set of steps for performing a scientific experiment.”
- Antoine de Laloubère (1600–1664) – The first mathematician to study the properties of the helix
- James B. Macelwane (1883–1956) – “The best-known Jesuit seismologist” and “one of the most honored practicioners of the science of all time”; wrote the first textbook on seismology in America
- Pierre Macq (1930– ) – Physicist who was awarded the Francqui Prize on Exact Sciences for his work on experimental nuclear physics
- Christian Mayer (astronomer) (1719–1783) – Jesuit astronomer most noted for pioneering the study of binary stars
Two of my favorites:
- Gregor Mendel (1822–1884) – Augustinian monk and father of genetics
- Nicolaus Copernicus (1473–1543) –Renaissance astronomer famous for his heliocentric cosmology that set in motion the Copernican Revolution
And of course, my all-time favorite:
This is simply a short list of an even greater number of cleric-scientist. So, you can either beleive the rant of an atheist or, actuall, recorded, historical and factual data…your call.
Religion being anti-Science my ass

#Engelbert and the Golem
Galya, also know to Engelbert’s unit as the Firebird like the creature from Slavic folklore. A blessing and a curse to those around her.
Ironically for her fiery look, and sometimes goofy and smiling image, in the battlefield she’s has a cold way of thinking; unlike characters like Meinhard and Mikhail who are hot-blooded or Engelbert who is somewhere in-between. Galya rarely acts out of emotion.

I’d rather support the Syrian government than the Islamist ‘Freedom fighters’. The current government may not be the most Democratic, but at least the Government attempts to stop the area falling into control by the Mujahadeen or Al-Quaeda. I don’t think people will realize how much the region will go to shit if Syria becomes ‘free’
Undemocratic as the Syrian goverment may be, there’s religious freedom, and Christians and other religious minorities in there don’t have to worry for their lives unlike those in other islamic states. Besides women in Syria are allowed to drive cars, and go with their heads uncovered if they wish so, and the rebels want to ban that.
Not to mention the ones aiding the rebels are the duo of USA and Israel and the ones aiding the Syrian goverment is Russia, that alone tells me who should I root for.
Yeah I think it’s obvious Bolton is behind Theon’s torture, look at the X banner and then the X cross Theon is being tied to.
