← Is religion a threat to rationality and science?

The Sumerian, Egyptian and Assyrian cultures were advanced in architecture, economics and political science. There would have been a bevy of scientists active before this and before the bronze age authors of the bible.

The Old Testement repeatedly emphasises the Israelites as the chosen people. As far as the bible is concerned religious faith of other cultures was irrelevant to science or anything else.
