    Religions can't really progress... I suppose they could civilize, but even then we can't determine progress we can just see change. I'd say it has changed.

    Define what you constitute as progress.

    Having matters settled in a way that makes future consideration of them unnecessary or getting closer to the truth in a way that can be evidenced objectively.

    So what you don't like is that Christianity is open to interpretation and isn't set in stone? (could be reading this wrong)

    The way I see it, religions change with the needs of the people. Theology just tries to have it make some sort of internal sense. No progress.

    My point was of course that there is much disagreement in many fields, and that differing perspectives aren't necessarily contradictions.

    For example, let's take what seems like a fairly objective question: Where is the Sun right now? I don't think you want or need to answer that, because you probably understand where the discussion would quickly go.
