It seems like I have lived this argument a million times - Ill sum up the million answers

Science is not right or wrong - it is a description of processes. There is no faith involved - not leap necessary. People think of "science" as an opposite of religion - it is not. Religion is a subset of science. Science changes constantly to fit observation. It does not care which side chooses it. It does not want followers or teachers. Science is just discovery and nothing else. We use it to accurate explain reality. If it is not accurate it is not science. There is no such thing as bad science - there are bad scientists. Religion cannot explain science - Religion is completely explainable by science.

If Science is a kettle, then Religion is a half burnt piece of potato stuck to the side. (Unless you are a level 3 like Richard, then the kettle is stuck to the potato) ; )

Dear Virgin,

The "evolutionary pots" have more than a book of mythology inside them. Don't you think?


...yes, I do. I think that when science becomes an end rather than a means, it
starts to take on some of the characteristics of religion or in a broader sense--mythology.
