Everything in this universe is lumped into science. It is one of those regions that we can not as easily prove as we can disprove (God is very easily disproved with rational, insightful, realistic, physical, mental, and emotional evidence). All of religion does not question itself whatsoever with any amount of credibility. If their arguement includes "I belief it so it must be true" is all they can come up with, then there isn't a debate on the issue.
I am by no means a scientist, but if you have no understanding of scientific theory and how it works then I suggest you stop trying to rationalize god and religion on a public forum like this.
yes science is all about dissecting. with regards to what we spoke about earlier about man's egotistical nature. why is it that we believe we can scientifically figure out how everything works? what is our drive to accomplish this? my understanding about the scientific theory is clear enough, and that is what leads me to believe in religion. many things scientific are theorized, and many theories are just that; based on assumptions that were based on other assumptions. the odds of all the necessary steps involved in evolution from the early prokaryote to the modern multi-cell complexes is so staggering, so unbelievable, that i dont understand how accepting those odds would be easier than accepting a god.
theories are ideas that may or may not be the way. schools teach it as if there is no way around it. if this were the case, why is it still a theory then? why is the theory of evolution a theory of evolution and not the principle of evolution?
im not helping you prove your point in anyway, if that's what you think, you have taken what i said out of context. everything is not black and white, you have to read the Bible for yourself, and take what's important out of it. much like Shakespearean literature, if you just read the words, it doesnt make sense. you are taking it word for word, and its not making sense to you. if creation didnt happen, you wouldnt be here, nor would i, and we wouldnt be having this conversation. you cant make something out of nothing (as explained by the theory of conservation of energy and mass).
i guess in the end, i take a different approach as you. until science disproves without a doubt that there is no god of any kind, i'll still believe in my God. for you gimped, you will not believe until science proves that a god exists.
