The Transition of Religion and Superstition to Science and Technology in the
The main purpose of this research paper is to describe the
transition of religion and superstition to science and technology during

the Church, was called the heliocentric theory. However, as in every
civilization, there were small groups of people who refused to believe what
the Church was telling them. The Church was not necessarily telling them
lies; they were simply dominating religion over common reason and
intellectuality.
Clearly, an age that takes its name from an intellectual atmosphere
cannot be fixed within rigid chronological limits. 'In ...
