Why don't people understand that religion and science are not rivals?

*sigh*
Atheism means you reject god and religion, it does not mean science is your religion.

Christians, take heart in Acts 5:33-41, and in Matthew 5:10. The world will always hate us for our faith, but do not let it discourage you. Yours is the kingdom of the heavens.

(But still take into consideration that you might be a dick. It's always a possibility.)

I'd get it as a tattoo, but without the "from faith to reason" part.
That part makes you seem like an everlasting douche.

The tattoo idea is really cool.

I hate it when Christians wear religious stuff like a cross necklace, and constantly tell people how religious they are and why. We atheists are nothing like that: we wear atheist stuff like a tattoo and tell everyone how atheist we are and why.

The rosary becomes a DNA.
The DNA has 4 bases, Adenine, Thymine, Cytosine, Guanine.
The Molecular Formula of Cytosine is C4H5N3O.
4*C(12) = 44
5*H(1) = 5
3*N(14) = 42
1*O(16) = 16
===> all together: ~110
110 : the 4 books of the new testament =~ 28
The name of the last pope was Benedict.
The first letter, B is if you read it from behind the 25th letter of the alphabet
28-25 = 3
3
Half Life 3 officialy confirmed by life and religion.

Now, I'm a nice guy. I respect others beliefs, and I don't really participate in a religious argument if I know it's not going to be civil, but the American Atheist Association is probably the biggest group of douches on the planet, who think that banning holidays like Easter and Christmas and taking down war memorials because their "shaped like a cross" is a good thing.

Also, just a personal thought, who says Religion and Science don't mix? There are theories from some religious leaders that for example, state that the days of creation were undefined periods of time, up to billions of years, with a major event (Let there be light) as a highlight. Nothing is set in stone. As humans we still know practically nothing about our universe, even though we get the tendency to think that we do, and until we can truthfully say that we know everything would arguments for or against a God hold any real ground.

tl;dr Some (but definitely not all) atheists are jerks, and that tatoo would be cool without the text.

I would NEVER get a tattoo of my beliefs.

Not only is it just wanting attention for belief, but it sounds wrong to have a tattoo of god on your arm, since we Christians do not know what he looks like ( assuming existence )

If i could get a tattoo it would be something small, and something i really love, maybe a Ottawa Senators logo or something.

It really does confuse me why people apply permanent marking on their Flesh in order to rub it in to others faces.

P.S, im not targeting atheists, i can say without the shadow of a doubt there are anti-antheist tattoos out there...


TL;DR Religion/belief tattoos are idiotic.

As a spiritualist who doesn't believe in a deity supports science but still thinks it only scratches the surface and likes to believe that human souls and the afterlife exist and that the supernatural is just magical because science hasn't reached such a level yet and accepts that one or the other side could be true or false, I find this sort of stuff petty.   
   
I don't mean to sound high and might myself, but I acknowledged that I could be wrong, but I'm sure that's true of many things. We stroke our ego. Science runs on facts, and evidence, but we still don't know the true nature of existence. A world inside a matrix would follow all the rules, but if it were revealed this was all virtual what would that say about science or religion? We're encaged by human perception and what we simply don't or can't understand.   
   
Religion has been around for a long time, nonsense or not its rooted in culture. I don't like how high and mighty the scientific community is capable of acting, because I like to think that they are full of themselves and have their own share of problems.   
   
Why can't people just get along, and instead of finding things to hate about one another focus on holding hands and forging a beautiful future together. Whilest our beliefs may or may not affect this it is our responsibility as humans to overlook our differences and think of the best way to progress our species. Endless bickering is for naught.    
   
TL;DR Cool tattoo, but the whole contest is kind of douchey.
