I love fossils. The mere existance throws a bigs wrench into the whole religion thing. It took me many years to admit it, but facts is facts.
I love carbon dating. Besides the fact that I have not had any other types of dates lately, carbon dating proves we are older than the 'great story' says.
Science is based on gathered and tested knowledge. I find it interesting that those of 'faith' turn to the same science they despise when they are ill or injured. Why wont god heal them? I dont like to attack any persons beliefs. I truely understand 'if you believe it, it must be true'.
I have heard persons of faith say to children that fossils were placed on Earth by satan as a means of confusing the children of god. Really? Is that the best you can come up with? The the next day you are at the doctors office getting a injection for allergies. Satan put that injection there to confuse you. What are you doing?
Sorry for the rant.
I guess what I am trying to say is:
How can a person attack science to support religious beliefs and then embrace science when the health need is there?
My father once said to me there is never an athiest in a foxhole. Out of respect I kept my thoughts to myself.
Most wars that require foxholes are at least partially caused by these religions so deeply embraced in our world.
Good Day All :)
