@Lavrentivs Also in the Lutheran Protestant tradition of the Nordics the priests and scholars were actually quite quick to accept and promote science (in the old days.... I've both seen and heard some loonies recently), even when Darwin presented his theory (and it was translated and became known in the Nordics) some prominent churchy dude in Denmark (and this is one of the few instances where I actually admit to admiring and respecting a Dane and their stance on stuff) proclaimed that there should be no churchy objection towards Darwin's theory, nor towards science, as those pertained to the natural world, while religion and the goddy stuff pertained to the spiritual/supernatural faithy beliefy type world (He may have phrased it differently).
