Church is the enemy of science

War between Science and Christianity
 
The Church has never been on the cutting edge of science — on the contrary, it has been the one persecuting scientists. The list of those who earned the wrath of the Church reads like a Who’s Who of Science: Copernicus, Bruno, Galileo, Descartes, Newton, Halley, Darwin, Hubble, even Bertrand Russell. The Church has also been on the wrong side of the social sciences for over 1,500 years, actively promoting slavery, anti-Semitism, the torture and murder of women as witches, sexual repression, censorship and the Inquisition, Crusades and other aggressive wars, and capital punishment for misdemeanors.

    CRUSH MAOIST RUTHLESSLY, THEY ARE BEING SUPPORTED BY AMERICANS
    Maoist rebels extort up to Rs 300 crore every year in Chhattisgarh from traders of forest products, transporters and iron ore mining firms, says Chief Minister Raman Singh.

    “Maoists extort at least Rs.250-300 crore annually and their extortion business runs from the state’s southern tip of Bastar to the northern Surguja district,” Singh told IANS.

    “They mainly extort money from traders of ‘tendu’ leaves, iron ore mining firms, small and big contractors and transporters,” he said.

    Tendu leaves, which are used to make bidis (leaf-rolled cigarettes), are one of the most important forest products of the Bastar region that has been considered the centre of Maoist terrorism in India since the late 1980s.

    The restive region spread across 40,000 sq km has deposits of about 20 percent of the country’s total iron ore stocks and owners of the mines regularly face extortion demands from Maoists.

    “The traders, businessmen, contractors and others who pay extortion money hardly have the courage to report it to the police because of the fear of Maoists and their own business interests in the region,” said Singh.

    Of the 1,500 casualties in Maoist violence since the state came into existence in November 2000 after splitting from Madhya Pradesh, 90 percent have been from Bastar.

    “The Maoists also force people in the Surguja region to cough up money,” added the chief minister.

    The Surguja region is one of the most coal-rich areas of the country. It is home to several mines of the public sector Coal India Limited’s (CIL) highest profit-making subsidiary, South Eastern Coalfields Limited (SECL).
