...a larger percentage of the population of Europe - one third to one half of the entire population died of plauge- actually, they died of ignorance because if they had known what plauge was- and they could would have known if religion hadn't held back science for the eight hundred years of the "dark ages",.One more thing about the relationship between religion and disease. I've heard it stated that the Jews suffered less from the black death plagues because of their strict dietary laws. If this is true, this would be a case where a faith-based "revelation" also had medical benefits. One could make the same argument with religion-based doctrines concerning abstinence, monogamy, incest, which would reduce incidences of STDs and genetic diseases.
