“Science explores nature by testing and gathering data. It can't tell you what's right and wrong. It doesn't address ethics. But it is not anti-religion. Science and religion just ask different questions.”

David Campbell

    No Mr. Campbell you’re wrong; they ask the same questions but use different methods to get to the answers.

    BK No. 3,

    Sir, you too are wrong. While they both ask the same questions and attempt to answer them, science is based upon its attempt to verify its answers by evidence, while religion relies upon “divine revelation” for both the answers and their (lack of) verification.

    Because of the difference in methodology, science has yielded the world as it is today, while the best religion was able to do was known as the middle ages. For both good and ill, I’ll take the world as it is today, as I prefer indoor plumbing, thank you very much.

    @Jeff: I totally agree with what you say.

    Not sure how that makes me “wrong” though.
