The reason why this post is stupid is because it misrepresents what science is. Science isn't hiding from something you think is false, it's analyzing it and finding out the truth if possible, then making connections to other knowledge if unable. You portray the man hiding under science, which is the exact OPPOSITE of what he should be doing. He should be facing it head on, with his head open and three other flows going into it.

You need not worry about religion my friend. There are assholes with religion and assholes without religion. They both know their choices.

Dude, I'm an atheist and I find this **** annoying. You are making this site worse by posting things like these.

Since when did science become synonymous with anti-religious? It's about bad ideas or habits being passed down through generations, but that the current generation has something the previous generations didn't to shield itself (which is actually the Internet).

This is something I typed on here before so I'm going to be lazy this time and just paste it again because it's relevant.   
   
"Science doesn't try to disprove God or Religion. People futilely attempt to do this and use Science as the tool. Then Science ends up getting blamed, when the true culprit is the person. The relationships between War and Religion tend to share a similar problem. "All Wars are started by some Religion! They should all be abolished!". This may appear correct at first glance, but it's deeper than that. Ignorance (intolerance, nonacceptance, and many other words fall under this type of "Ignorance") is what actually causes most, if not all, War. To put it simply, "You don't hold my opinion on _______, so I'm going to kill you."    
   
Back to the main point though. Science and Religion are both tools with distinct 'properties' that can be used differently. Science is more concrete, while Religion is more interpretive. This allows for some flexibility, because you can use them together in many different ways. Without making this a 7 page paper, though, I'll just give one example that I believe clears up what I mean.    
   
Love is essentially just a series of Biochemical interactions between two people, with a dash of Psychology/Sociology.    
Does knowing that make love any less 'magical' or 'special' though?    
   
One Scientist might say "Yes, this is how it works and it shows our interactions to be nothing more than complex Chemistry."    
   
The second Scientist might say "No, understanding how it works doesn't make it any less valid. Our concept of love still exists, but now we know how it works."    
   
Now, which one is correct?    
Big finish.. It's ultimately just a matter of opinion."

This has been posted too many times in the past few days. Is it that hard to shut up about someones religion/beliefs? Is it that hard to understand that everyone wants to better themselves but dickheads like you force people to get into meaningless arguments over the internet, and that betters no one

After scanning through the comments I have found out three things, two of which I already knew.

First, OP is a faggot troll. Good job on not only starting a **** storm but going around to individual comments to continue the faggotry with gale force winds.

Secondly, Atheists on this website have no idea what Atheism means. They act like they're five, I see tons of people saying "Why are you attacking us, we've done nothing. We just want to have our own beliefs" to be rebuttled by someone with downs "YOUR BELIEFS R STOOPID".

Tertiary, Atheism for 99% of these twats who want to act like Atheism is a religion (which in fact you do, making you not an atheist but a faggot) can't tell the difference between "Christianity/Islam and Other religions". Cool you know two religions, and you spend your entire time here making ignorant comments about both. Most people can't even comment on Islam without being racist.


Frankly you disgust me and given my way I would see all of you at the bottom of the ocean in a very tiny container full of glass and the tears of butthurt you make whenever someone DARES to believe something that isn't "science", which I wouldn't use since most of the atheists here don't know **** about science but they do know how to regurgitate the same arguments and formulas OTHER people have made. But hey they are totally against people doing that with religion and traditions.

Inb4 butthurt religion fag, I post this from sheer rage of the fact you know nothing of life and humanities.

Religion, isn't a ******* tutorial on science. For instance, the creation story didn't actually happen like that. The bible isn't a science textbook, it's divine-inspired words to describe an actual happening. If you ******* think the earth was made in 7 days, you're a ******* . If you think the Earth was made by God, and that the 7 days and list of everything is to show and emphasize his power, then congratulations, you understand how religion works!

there seems to be this concept going around that religion and science can't co-exist, and it's just not true. I grew up in a religious household, yet my mother is an environmental engineer, and my father is an advanced physics professor.

Yes you do have to take everything you hear from the bible with a pinch of salt, but the exact same can be said about anything you hear on any news network.

Do you know how to tell of some ones an atheist? Don't worry they'll tell you. Over and over again. Then shove your retardation down your own throat. Hell I'm even an agnostic but atheists can't ******* control their ******* mouths.

Science has yet to disprove a higher power. There's nothing wrong with being spiritual, as long as you don't shove it down everyone's throat, kind of like you just did.

Religion is yet to prove the existence of a higher power.
