RE: Your Science has become a false religion
How can anybody compare science with a religion? Science is about discovering new things and gaining knowledge, whether it be about the universe, life on Earth, etc. Unlike religion, science involves no worship whatsoever. In fact, science will always change when proven wrong. Religion, on the other hand - no matter how much of their claims are disproved - basically never changes (there are a few examples of this though. The Dalai Lama said “If scientific analysis conclusively showed that certain beliefs of Buddhism are false it would be necessary to accept those scientific discoveries and abandon those beliefs.”). In fact, creationists actually use this as a defense! They say "Science changes all the time, while we stick to our beliefs, so how can we trust science?" Really? So, in other words, it's better to remain ignorant of the truth and simply continue to stick to claims that have been proven as false? How is that defense? It boggles my mind.

If science is worthless and we should simply be worshiping a God, then I have a proposition for creationists: Throw out all the advances that science has made in medicine, then take 2,000 people - 1,000 creationists and 1,000 atheists - and infect them with Bubonic Plague. Give the atheists medical treatment and let the Creationists use only prayer, asking their god to save them and see who has the better survival rate.

But we prayed and God helped man invent medicines! It all comes from God! Except for fossils. Those are the devil's work.

This seems as good a thread as any to use this response:

If Jesus died for our sins, why is there still sin? If man was created from dust, why is there still dust? If Americans came from Europe, why are there still Europeans?

RE: Your Science has become a false religion
Looks for something that the OP wrote in order to mock it out of existence.

First - your name. You need to change it to "Theguywhobelievesbullshitfornogoodreason"
I know, I know, it's too long. And frankly I hear that all too often.

Second your title would seem to show that you have no concept of 1) what a religion is and 2) what science is and or does

Behold, you are consumed in His glory! - (Sorry I have spell resistance and my initiative is a 1. I consume god before he can do anything)
His glory assaults you on every side!... (On every side of my stomach, because as I said before, he has been consumed - No save)

Even within, look, He is there! - (Not for much longer he's not. I have god eating acids in my stomach. I take a tums in advance of the gas that is sure to come)

For in you are all things written, in your very being, (Ya I know, cause I ate him)
Delicately etched there by The Right Hand of God... (Hey hey, no graffiti on my stomach lining. Hands just dissolved. That solves that)

Your god is a mental word game that you can't even win at.
My imagination is more powerful than your imagination
Why ? Because I said so Big Grin ^ (right there) ^

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results
