Stem-Cell Research, Universities & The Church
With today's news about the developments in non-embryonic stem cell research I recall that Catholic-Christian points-of-view were responsible for the beginning and development of universities so vital to human progress. This invention was NOT reflected in Islamic or Pagan nations which lacked that intellectual and ethical base Some of those "other" nations have more recently copied Western style schools without reproducing the idea generators which are Western schools. Those schools in Islamic and Pagan dominated nations have only been able to build on the successes of ideas first developed (As for genetics, from an Austrian monk to British DNA discoverers) in the West.
