    Re: Religion vs. Science

    Why does this question raise so much controversy? Has it not already been proven that we as humans have done so much to prove that we were once a plasmic fluid? Have the bones of the apes we call ancestors not been found?
    On the other hand why does it seem that religion is so real? Why have the countries of israel and pakistan been fighting for thousands of years for their own thought of a just cause? How do We explain these so called "miracles" peole talk about?
    The answer my friends may never be known. But to me it does seem that science could prevail.

    haha, yes I came across references of such ... and honestly it makes me scratch my head in wonder at the capacity for human conviction in the face of such overwhelming evidence?

    Now granted, there are a multitude of things and phenomena that science has but a rudimentary grasp of (with the consequent lack of evidence) ... yet the physics of spherical expediencies in planetary formation is not one of them ...

    ... but oh well, everyone is entitled to their personal beliefs ...

    <Well, not absolute proof ... but a great deal of circumstantial evidence along with many indicators that reinforce the notion of evolution over spontaneous creation.>

    <I can't say much about these "miracles" without investigating them with a testable and repeatable methodology ... but as for why religion seems so real, one can argue that humans have an intrinsic psychological need for the "big picture" along with a desire for a plan (or planner) which is greater than us humans ... very much like the kind of comfort children have "knowing" that their parents are their to help them with any difficulty ... we adult humans greatly desire the same such reassurance ... but of course the problem arises ... where do we adults turn to? >



    The answer my friends may never be known. But to me it does seem that science could prevail.

    <If by science prevailing, you mean that the truth comes to light ... then I hope you are right>

Though a lot of science is just theory, often with lots of observations and tests to back them up, there are many things that we cannot deny that bring question to all Earthly religions. Things like the existence of other worlds outside of our galaxy and the existence of other galaxies, proof of life long before humans, expansion of the universe, etc.

    Which is right; religion, science, both, neither? Or is it something that humans simply cannot comprehend and thus is something we could never know?

    Enlighten me...
    I don't believe religion holds any answers
    Nor that science is absolutly right either
    I do believe that science will someday disprove religion
    Science is an religion to some point i guess
    I don't think religion and science can go hand in hand
    With time i believe that the universe will expand and to some point we will have to leave earth...but I have no clue if we will.
    Neither is right, right is an absolute thing bound on complete and total convictions.
    And we probably will never know
    Enlightened?

    Re: Religion vs. Science

    When I was a child I had heard both evolution and intelligent design methods of the origins of the human race. At the age of....I would say six or seven I responded "What if God made the animals evolve?" Some people were shocked that they hadn't considered that themselves, where as I, a six year old had bested them.


    Now I know there are people on various view points and trying to convert a scientist or a priest to the other side is a marvelous waste of time. I do however, firmly, firmly believe there are only two options.

    1. Humanity evolved from lesser organisms. This is explained best by Darwin, when he postulated that if a bird breeder can create so many different types of pigeon by selective breeding, who is to say mother nature couldn't do the same, and that after millions of years the results of which would be so different that one would hesitate to call them pigeons, or even birds for that matter?


    2. My other belief is that God himself created the original organisms, and eventually s/he saw it fit to change some, to create new ones, and to abolish others. An ever-changing Earth was created, which continues to change to this day.

    I personally, however strongly lean towards the first option. That regardless of whether or not God created the original organisms, he did not create them all, and the evolution of life went on in a "hands-off" state without his interference.
