  1. just don’t get why crapping on religion makes people feel better. I believe in God. You don’t. You go your way, and I’ll go mine. I wish you well.

  2. I guess the other comment I would have is that I believe Science when they say they’ve found the cat with the flashlight (and that cat evolved from an amoeba-dinosaur whatever. I believe that, too.) It’s just with religion I believe it’s God saying, “Hey cat, why don’t you go see what’s in that room?”

    • I agree. Yes, I strongly believe in science, evolution, and properly researched data. I don’t believe science is infallible since we, as humans, make mistakes. I also believe in my version of God. I know my definition is different than everyone else’s because we all make our own judgements and evaluations. To some, I’m a Heritic for believing so, for some I’m a wingnut for believing at all. Fortunately, I don’t answer to them. I answer to myself and my God.

      Well…and my wife, too. Definitely to she who must be obeyed.

  3. One of the dumbest things I’ve ever read.

    1) Metaphysics IS philosophy and is indeed NEEDED to give scientific results any meaning.

    2) Religion is usually admittedly based on faith and mystery. Religion helps people deal with the fact that they may not find the cat–in this life anyway.

    3) This assumes that someday science (and philosophy) will someday be done.
