During the Renaissance, there were many scientific advances and discoveries. Weapons and armory also improved to help soldiers fight. The Renaissance Period started around the fourteenth century and ended around the beginning of the seventeenth century. New information was rediscovered by Christian scholars due to the growth of trade and crusades (Centers of Inventions ?).

Aristotle’s concept of the Prime Mover found its way into the medieval theology of Thomas Aquinas and his cosmological proof for the existence of God. Likewise, Aristotle’s teleological arguments found their way into Aquinas’ Natural Law. An accidental universe is as likely as a caused one There are many modern scientific theories that attempt to grasp why the universe is here, who put it here and who created everything in it.
Assess the view that science has replaced religion as the main ideology today Ideology is a set of ideas that legitimates the power of a particular group. Science explains the world with testable evidence and that evidence would legitimate the power of that group. As opposed to religion which is a shared set of views and looks up to a supernatural being and having answers for the creation of the world regarding these supernatural deities, and these answers would legitimate the power of a follower of that religion. Throughout the course of history, religion has played a huge part in terms of followers and people’s views of how the world is created. Mainly Christianity in pre industrial Britain and also after.
In America you have the right to pray, go to church, talk about your God to anyone, but in many other countries you don’t have the right to do that. Secondly, America has advanced technology. America has come up with many genius inventions. Some inventions are: the first gas powered car, steamboats, the telegraph, traffic lights, video games, and the electric TV. Ever since then we have been finding ways to make old inventions better.
Manifest Destiny reflected both the prides that characterized American Nationalism in the mid-19th century, and the idealistic vision of social perfection through God and the church. Individually, the components created separate reasons to conquer new land. Together they exemplified America’s ideological need to dominate from pole to pole. `While some were driven by what they considered God's will, others saw Manifest Destiny as the American domination of North America from sea to sea. It was the way to extend American liberty to new areas.
The Scientific Revolution During the 1600’s to 1700’s, the western world was greatly influenced by science. Wonderful scientists such as Galileo, Isaac Newton, Copernicus, and William Harvey all played contributing roles during the Scientific Revolution. Not only did scientists have a large impact on the western world, but discoveries and inventions such as the study of astronomy and the invention of the telescope played important roles as well. In 1564, our world was changed due to the birth of one of the most well-known and influencial scientists, Galileo Galilei. Being the oldest of seven, he set out to learn about medicine and eventually found that he had a passion for arithmetic.
Out of a need for unity and empowerment, they fashioned the idea of a single God, the sole creator of the world, and most importantly, their protector. Inevitably, due to increased communication and travel, this new idea of monotheism found its way to the rest of the axial world. In addition, the roots of scientific thought also date back to this period. Before the axial age there was no clear differentiation between science and religion. The world was viewed as a
Religion has been a fundamental component in every colonization known to man since the Garden of Eden. In fact, one is hard pressed to find a culture where the act of utilizing the principle of religion as a cornerstone is not employed. However it was upon the virgin soil of America that Religion made one of its most indelible conquests. Religious conviction played a vital role in all of the continent's fledgling settlements, but particularly in two colonies did religion, unequivocally, have the most radically different effect. It was religion that drove the New England colony and Middle Atlantic colony down two starkly opposite paths, but one was a religion of uniformity and government by God, and the other, a religion promising exactly the opposite.
Throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the seemingly modern, theological humanistic approach to the Christian world posed a need for a new and fresh way of thinking as it related to the hierarchical order. Challenging to the current, traditional world order, this new order escorted in a period called the Enlightenment. This period was a time of scientific awakening centered around France. During this period theorists undertook the big topics such as social and moral theory and the role of mankind in the world. In addition, during this period, numerous developments were made, the outlook of humans as related to God was shifted, and a wide host of logical ideas were being debated in huge forums.
