Dark Ages was a historical period between 5th and 15th century during which economic, cultural and scientific deterioration occurred.

Economical life was improved during Middle ages, from that period we have banks, loans, trade corporations etc. Cultural life was improved also, rate of literacy was better, modern educational system started its development then. Also agriculture was improved (crop roataion). In medicine we could see large practical improvment. Not to mention tiny fact that world passed from slavery to feudal system, another major improvment.
We could see detoriation in Renessaince compared to Middle ages. In Middle ages people were bathing themselves regulary. Renassaince men did not bath themselves. Japanese, Chinese Moors were disgusted by that bad habit of enlighted Europeans.

Christianity became the dominant religion in many regions of Europe from 4-5th centuries throwing Europe into “Dark Ages”. Dark Ages was a historical period between 5th and 15th century during which economic, cultural and scientific deterioration occurred. 
There is little doubt in my mind that Christianity slowed down Europeans for at least 1000 years.

Dark ages is early period of Middle ages, period of time about which lack historical sources.

There were no breaking discoveries in astronomy, physics, and biology. Chemistry existed in the form of alchemy. I can only think of mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci who lived in the 12 th century. He introduced Arabic numerical system in Europe. Probably others introduced it before Fibonacci, he received the recognition  he probably did not deserve, but that’s another story.
Aristotle, Archimedes, Hippocrates, Herodotus, Euclid and other famous greeks all lived in pre-Christian times. .

I am not deneing existance of Ancient Greek culture before Christianity, thing is there was no European identity and culture before Christianity.
Concerning, discoveries check history a bit.

Was Zeus (and others like him), not able to control his fornication problem, a good or a bad god?  ;D

He is doing good and bad things. However why Heracles become demigod? Because all good deads he done.
Is this leading somewhere. There is 5 pages of erronous statments in this thread. You are arguing aginst Christianity, without knowing it, you are discussing Ancient Gree religion without knowing it.
