Science simply put, is just another religion that many subscribe to because it's the popular thing to do, not to mention the publicized thing taught in schools. There is a better way out there to live ones life than to say "Man is its own god".
I think my brain just exploded. And then imploded.
Science is NOT a religion.
See here the main difference between science and religion.
The thing about religions is they are mortal. A thousand religions have come and died in the history of mankind, and so will yours. Science, by which i mean drawing conclusions from observation evidence and logic, has been around as long as man has reasoned. It is older than the oldest living religion and it isnt going anywhere. Because even if the entire world believes a crazy purple lampshade is the reason electricity works SOMEONE will ask "why", seems to me to be electrons. And THAT. Is science. Question EVERYTHING. Ask why, demand to see evidence. Do things breath? Require oxygen? How, look inside, test never take an answer without asking WHY or knowing or testing it.
Faith is thinking you know something without any proof by definition
Science is thinking something BECAUSE of proof by definition.
Science is the gateway to understanding and unwrapping our entire universe and why everything moves the way it does. If you argue all science is a lie then jump out your window, developed by guesswork, and land using gravity, developed by notscience apparently.
Science is NOT a religion because it requires NO faith. No suspencion of disbelief. Science will NEVER ask you to believe at all. Science asks you to look with your EYES at the test and say what you can see, then do it yourself and see if you can see the same thing. Religion is telling you the test shows god and to shut up and sit down.
Science is saying the wall to be left is white. Which it is. Because i just looked.
Religion asks me to believe a wall 2000 miles away is orange and purple. Which i dont know. Because no ones looked.
The bible has NO evidence. At all. Tell me WHAT fits with the bible exactly? The bit where all dinosaurs are lies, all cavemen are lies, all cave drawings are lies, the bit where the world is apparently only 3000 years old? These are all wrong. And yet the bible says them. My theory of evolution allows for them all perfectly, and i have fossels, DNA tracing, observation, tests on microbes, MRSA, finches, bone records, biological testing on mutation and genetics.
You have a book and a shit tonne of people desperately hunting for evidence for it.
I have a shit tonne of people gathering evidence and trying to decide what it means.
I think i know which one makes the most sense.
Citing the bible as evidence for anything is shakey because of this:
I mean as a moral compass, its a tad shakey, citing for the explanation of real world phenomina? Its so contradictory its impossible.
Religion has nothing to do with evolution anyway. Science isnt a religion, nor is evolution. Its just an observation. The bible can be teaching a good story without being a creationist.
