    In science, the accuracy of a theory is measured by agreement with reality, not by a popularity contest.

    Science is humble where religion is arrogant. Science is careful where religion is reckless. Science is accepting of new facts that change an old understanding, religion is intolerant and absolutist.

    In science we have astronomy, chemistry, physics. In religion we have astrology, alchemy, and meta-physics.

    In science we can measure great distances and determine a chronology of time events with astonishing precision. In religion in spite of mankind’s incredible ability to understand time and space we find adherents to an idea that the earth is between 6,000 and 10,000 year of age.

    In science we conclude of the basis of evidence. In religion we take on faith the ancient ramblings of some long dead, socially underdeveloped and frightened, tribal lunatics.

    The time has come for people to step from out of the darkness of the cave and see that everything the pedophile priest was saying was a lie.

    All anyone has to do is see an animal react to noise or movement in the woods and watch it assume something is there, something invisible to be wary of. Some unusual invisible force that must be respected and scared of, and how easily this assumption can be extrapolated into an all mighty invisible being at the cause of all things unknown by sentient beings. Belief in god is proof of evolution.

    Religion is just another piece of the evidence for evolution, how ironic… LOL

    sinjin………………….

    i think you’ve said before that poverty and

    stupidity/ignoance allow religion to flourish,

    and i think you’re right. but, i would add

    FEAR. wouldnt fear really be the motivation

    to burn scientists…………fear of what they

    can prove………..and so………….fear of

    what they represent ??

    today is the 911 10 year mark…………and,

    political considerations aside, i think this

    observance has some pointed messages for

    atheists. they’re too numerous and too

    OBVIOUS to list. i’m sure you catch the

    drift.

    i wonder how many people chose to

    divest themselves of god THAT day ?

    Nature that is a very fair observation and conclusion.

    R j this link is to a video that spills overs with an undertone of what you are getting at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xwZt8ypufE

    Anyone who professes belief in god after viewing this has identified them as a sociopath in no uncertain terms.
