Ghastly: Because you can't prove a negative. You can't prove god does not exist but you can prove god does exist.
clancifer: Ghastly: Because you can't prove a negative. You can't prove god does not exist but you can prove god does exist.?
scottydoesntknow: Science does not prove or disprove the existence of a god or gods. It's kind where that whole 'faith' thing comes in.
kxs401: Subby doesn't seem to understand how science, proof, or God work.
Ghastly: kxs401: Subby doesn't seem to understand how science, proof, or God work.In mysterious ways.
Quasar: clancifer: Ghastly: Because you can't prove a negative. You can't prove god does not exist but you can prove god does exist.?You can't prove that unicorns with the voice of Morgan Freeman don't exist. You can potentially prove that they do, if they do. Nobody ever said science disproves God.Common sense, maybe.
kronicfeld: No, but science can disprove many of the "factual" foundations of specific religions. Most of them, really.
Doctor Funkenstein: Ghastly: kxs401: Subby doesn't seem to understand how science, proof, or God work.In mysterious ways.It's alright, it's alright, it's alllllriiiight!
jeffjo52: Ghastly: Because you can't prove a negative. You can't prove god does not exist but you can prove god does exist.You are one of the dumbest assholes on the planet... you CAN prove a negative. Under strict lab conditions monitoring air pressure, heat, and light exposure I can prove which elements will react with each other and which won't. Once I change one of the conditions the results may change but that doesn't change the results of the original test.If 2 elements won't react with each other I have proven a negative you halfwit farking coont.I am tired of militant atheists like you... just as bad as militant theists.
GBB: So, what you're saying is that Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster might really be out there?
Farking Canuck: Science doesn't give a rat's ass
make me some tea: Science does not, nor does it need to, address the existence of God.It sure does tend to poke a few holes in some of those Bible stories, though.
hubiestubert: Religion answers questions of Why.
hubiestubert: Science and faith are not intrinsically at odds.Dogma and science, yeah. Fair often--because a 6000 year old Creation doesn't jibe with the evidence.I am a theist--not Christian, though being raised in the South and across America, I went to Sunday Schools galore to fit in--and science only makes me appreciate the wonder of this existence all the more. Faith and science aren't mutually exclusive, though some ministries and church's and temples and teachers see contravention of their teachings as being at odds with science.Science and religion are only at odds with one another when you try to use them to answer the same question sets. Science is for questions of How. How things work. How can we get from point A to B faster and safer? Religion answers questions of Why. The intentional sense of Why. It's not the ONLY way to ask those questions, but faith does set things up for those questions. Science, not so much. Science is mum on questions of intention of existence. You can get by not asking those questions, but some folks do want answers, and they find some meaning within those structures.The problem lies in thinking that science directly counterdicts faith. Dogma? For damn sure in a lot of cases, but somehow the faithful have gotten used to a heliocentric solar system, and they can survive a Universe older than 6000 years. Faith sees far more challenge from how folks treat one another, than it does from science. Maybe if you stop using your faith as the be all, end all to every question, you might find things run smoother. You can't use a screwdriver for all tasks with tools. Use the proper tool, for the appropriate task. Science is a tool. Faith is as well. Use the right tool, for the appropriate question set...
alaric3: The argument goes something like this: "I refuse to prove that I exist,'" says God, "for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing."
