Ya know, since when was religion the polar opposite of science? How is a lifestyle / guide to life and opposite of the tool for discovery on physical phenomenon.

Because one rules the other out, science can't excist if religion does (good thing its only a thing created by humans). The other way around, god doesnt excist according to science - so they are, sorta, polar opposites.
Religion is believing what youre told, Science is believing in proofs

My book told me not to believe everything for what it is, but to investigate and discover for yourself the truth. My book serves as my motivation and guidance. Science was simply my dictionary when I don't know some physics when designing algorithms and making games. Get the picture anon?

That is absolutely and completely false. I'm a Christian and will soon be getting my bachelors degree in a science major with the intent of becoming a scientist and there is absolutely no conflict with that in my religion. Get off your computer and go back to school before you embarrass yourself further.

Since a while ago actually, the church (the old catholic church) oppressed scientific discovery for quite a long time during the dark ages and quite a while afterwards. It's amazing how long bad history leaves a stigma. Not saying you're wrong or anything, just pointing out why is all.

And Puritans/Butthurt Englishmen oppressed the theatre. What's your point?

I thought my point was obvious. I was trying to tell him why there's this idea that religion is against science, there's a lot of history of it. That's all.

I'm done here, I don't even know what you're talking about anymore.

I've re read your comments and my apologies, cause initially it seems from your statement you are saying religion is the polar opposite of science because Christians oppressed scientific discoveries. And i was simply saying just cause christianity did that doesnt mean all religions do.

You're still misunderstanding. Never did I say they were polar opposites. I said there's a history of oppression of scientific discovery by the old christian church. And that is the basis for the idea that religion is against science. Nor did I say all religions did/do.

Not sure what you mean by that. If you mean to ask is Christianity a religion then yes. If you mean to ask is it the only one then no. I was simply referring to the basis of the idea that religion is against science was due to the fact of actions taken by the Catholic church a long time ago against discoverers and scientists. Such as Galileo and Kepler who could prove that the universe didn't revolve around the earth. This went against the prevalent theory of Geo-centrism which the church held to rigorously so they attempted to bury their findings and silence them. Read up on a little history if you're unfamiliar with it.

Also, science/evolutionism is also a religion.

No it isn't you idiot. Science is a study and evolution is a theory.
