Now I become death...the destroyer of worlds
The following is a short clip from an interview with Robert Oppenheimer where he reflected on the Trinity test and the birth of the atomic age. Please take a minute to watch it as it frames the discussion.





It takes religion to fly airplanes into buildings but with science you can destroy the world.

What is really more dangerous? Science or religion?

Technology in the hands of Religion.

Boris Yeltsin almost launched a nuclear barrage against the U.S.

This.

Give a person willing to kill himself for religion a bigger weapon and he'll kill more people for religion.

Honestly, Hewood, I don't know why you would even ask this question. You ask what's worse: the will to kill lots of people, or the ability, without even considering the possibility that they aren't mutually exclusive.

Science does not have the ability to be "good" or "evil"

It is the motives of people who use it which can be good or evil

If a religion gives you the moral feeling of right to disregard human life, then yes, it's religion.

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.

Blowjob apparently was infected with the I and I prion, (like Mad Cow Disease).
The question isn't science vs religion.
The REALLY pressing question facing humans in 2013 is :
