T-shirt “list of scientific discoveries that were later proved wrong using religion”

I ran across this shirt on an Atheist site which reads “Here’s a list of scientific discoveries that were later proved wrong using religion.”

I have been attempting to figure out just how many thing one would have to not know in order to 1) conceive of the idea, 2) print it on a shirt, 3) have other Atheists think is it clever, 4) actually advertise it, sell it and wear it.

This is the sort of thing that represents the power of a Twitter-like mindset: someone makes a one-liner of a statement and it requires disproportionately lots of bothersome words to explain what is wrong with it.

Primarily, it is typical of Atheist propaganda which presupposed, without evidence, that Atheism is the purview of science or that science is the purview of Atheism or whatever it is that they are constantly implying.
The fact is that Atheism has utterly nothing to do with science and science has utterly nothing to do with Atheism.

The uncontroversial fact of the history of science is that the scientific method was premised upon Biblical theology since the premise is that a ration God created a rational creation and populated it with rational beings who therefore, could rationally discern it.

Not only is Atheism not the premise for the scientific method but it could not be as it provides no prerequisite for intelligibility, it provides no prerequisite for induction as it claims constant flux, it also claims that nothing caused nothing to explode for no reason and made everything without meaning, it claims that we are all temporarily and accidentally existing bio-organisms whose brains haphazardly evolved and did so for survival (for some unknown reason) and not necessarily to ascertain empirical truth, and it claims that our thoughts are the result of random bio-chemical reactions.

Thus, it is not an issue of “scientific discoveries that were later proved wrong using religion” but “scientific discoveries that were later proved wrong using” the theologically premised scientific method.

Now, during the time when cosmogonists were telling us that the steady state theory is accurate—that the universe is eternal—“religion” well, we must pause. You see, using generic terms like “religion” is part of the problem since I certainly cannot reply in terms or every single “religion” but will focus upon the Biblical ones.
So, during the time when cosmogonists were telling us that the steady state theory is accurate—that the universe is eternal—Judaism and Christianity would have told them that such is inaccurate. However, there are difference kinds, forms, sorts, and levels of explanations and the scientific explanation is the one that is not about why but about how. Thus, it was the Biblically based scientific method which ended up providing the how as to how it was inaccurate.

In this way, any and every scientific discoveries that were later proved wrong by science have been proven wrong by a byproduct of Biblical theology.

In short, the t-shirt represent a category error whereby science (as mis-defined by Atheists which is really scientism) is correlated with a generic reference to religion (so everything from Judaism to Scientology and from Christianity to Flying Spaghetti Monsterism).
