"...one must first study the past and observe where some of the greatest sources of knowledge came from!"

Lets do that, shall we instead of just making a blanket statement.
Archimedes - Believed in many gods - Invented statics.
Einstein - Believed in one god - invented relativity.
Darwin - Don't really know what he believed in - invented evolution.
Freud - Athiest, though Jewish - Turned psychology from a myth into a science.
Galileo - Christian - Decided sun was center of solar system, was banned from church.
Marx - I think an athiest - invented model of evolution for government.
Jesus - Jewish - World's first advocate for socialism.
Confucious, though I like Lao Tzu more - Asian - alot of work in philosophy.
Socretes - Polythiest - huge philosopher. Everyone came from him.
Shakespeare - Christian - World's best writer EVER! Related real life to his stories. They still live today and will always live.

I think this is a fair list of the world's most innovative thinkers. They have broken the mold and have given us the knowledge we know today. None of these, except for Jesus was affiliated in any important way with religion. They were religious, but not to the point that they tried to impose their religious views in their knowledge. None of these were saints or prophets, save Jesus.
