I've been able to overlook a lot of Rhea's more questionable decision making because she still seemed like a well intentioned person, just.. not super competent? But never truly reaching mind numbing levels of stupidity.

Then I found out that she outlawed technological advancements and medicinal advancements, for the simple reason that "Church good. Medicine bad."

That's it that's the only reason. I don't know if this is another gaff on the part of the translation team, but if this is the sole reason for improving the quality of life for an entire continent then... Huge oof.

Linhardt says some of the books look to be forgeries, but doesn't say which is which, so I guess you can reject or accept the lore as you see fit.

I know someone on Tumblr is taking a look at the books at a case-by-case basis to see which ones seem plausible, but they're only on the first: https://faroreswinds.tumblr.com/post/190816034399/

There was a Twitter post on another book, but I can't remember the username. EDIT: Found it! https://mobile.twitter.com/XtremeChrono/status/1228113769714176001

And Edelgard is equally dumb and wrong as usual for claiming that it was the Church and Rhea who split Fodlan to more easily control it when it was actually the slithers who caused it.

It doesn't work that way. Rhea is the direct cause of keeping humanity from advancing. Edelgard only knows history that is passed down from her family and isn't kept anywhere else.

In no way does that make Edelgard dumb, history is controlled by the Slithers in secret.

TL;DR all information in game is unreliable and only things that happen on screen are verifiable. Otherwise it's speculation or half baked ideas.

I am referring to other nations. Slitherers are indeed technologically advanced, but were so long before the Church of Seiros

All nations surrounding Fodlan never successfully invade Fodlan, nor do they show any evidence of noticable technological advancement. Almyra is basically medieval Persia or Turkey for example.

Isn't the fact that Fodlan isn't advanced proof that the church is suppressing technological advancements? After all, The Slitherers were the people who made first contact with Sothis. If they had advanced technology back then, got wiped out, and now Fodlan's merry-goers don't have advanced technology while living under Rhea's church...

Surely that implies that someone is holding back technological advancements to at least get back to where humanity on Fodlan was before the Nemesis incident? I doubt it'd take over a thousand years to at least break even.
