    god, this makes me rage. is it possible that someone can look at the universe and decide it was created?

    i dont go to church, but i beleive in god. i dont try to live my life in any “good” way, and i dont use the bible to determine how i should make my choices. the ten commandments dont keep me from killing or stealing or what have you. i’m just not a douchebag.

    my parents didnt make me go to church. and i don’t believe out of blind faith.

    tl;dr
    i has been troll’d

    Yes, Nate, it is possible. For tens of thousands of years of years that’s exactly what people did. That was the origin of creationism. Having grown up in the time you did, in the place that you did, you’ve grown up in a culture that decided your religious default setting.

    my culture did not decide my belief, dawkins.

    church people have a harder time with my beliefs than non-religious people. i was not forced to believe anything, and was allowed to come to my own conclusions based upon what i’ve experienced

    You weren’t forced to believe anything and I never claimed you were. You have been raised in a predominantly judeo-christian society, and have developed a generic judeo-christian belief. It’s not surprising, it just is. The surprise would be if you developed a belief in Hinduism, or Buddhism, or Islam. But no, you were raised in the good ol’ USofA and you have a generic Protestant belief.

    but if that were true, then why isnt everyone here protestant? and my beliefs are considered heresy by most “christians”, because i do not believe that the things we do (sins or good works) determine where the soul goes after death.

    i also don’t believe in Heaven. i think God will come live here on the earth in a physical body, instead of everyone going up in the clouds

    kudos, though, on at least posting “Successful Troll Is Successful”
    rather than spending your whole life dedicated to preaching that Trolling is, in fact, a art.

    no their not…apples are apples and oranges are oranges. science is a religion…you can tell because people get really offended when you tell them that. its like when people who believe in religion say “its not religion its faith” “its not religion its science”. but its still something you either believe in and place your faith or its something you don’t believe in and do not place your faith. science is based on assumptions and requires one to believe one theory on top of another on top of another and so on is the answer. at each point along the… Read more »

    Your wrong. Scientists don’t “have faith” in the theories they research. They believe that they might be true and then test that hypothesis. If it turns out that such theories are not true, they reject them. If they had faith then they would hold onto these theories and try to skew the data towards its favor. These would be bad scientists.

    The only “Dogma” that science has is that ideas should be tested, and ideas that don’t hold up to this are wrong. If so then everything is a religion and your argument is meaningless.

    scientists do have faith. I saw this lecture (cant find the video now) recently in which a scientist explained what he thought was around before the small quiet. He said, basically, that before the small quiet there was just a quantum field in flux. This quantum field is so random and complex that it was inevitable that physical mater would manifest. This assumption that this is the beginning, that this is the thing that simply exists to allow for the rest of reality is a point of faith. At some point the buck has to stop. At some point there… Read more »

    If everything is a religion then saying anything is a religion doesn’t change anything IE is meaningless. The fact of the matter is that every human endeavor is based on assumptions. Assumptions that actions have causes; assumptions that the rules of the universe are consistent; and all the others. If you don’t question any assumption then you have faith. If you do question then seek answers you are a scientist. Incidentally, if you question all of these you are a philosopher. A belief structure is not a religion, however. A religion is closer to a BELIEF CULTURE. If religion is… Read more »

    sigh.
    I understand the position you are taking.
    It is a poor position to argue.
    Why?
    Please look at the picture that started this thread.
    Those are the differences between the two.
    All of the things you are referencing are bad examples for this reason:
    The question marks at the end of those concepts and theories are constantly being pushed and tested. Even if a plausible explanation is found, scientists do their best to thwart it.
    Religion doesn’t ever investigate its question marks. C’mon, man. Seriously.

    you are right…religion (as in tradition Christian, Jewish, Hindism…) does not investigate its questions. This is why science is such a good religion for the times we live in. People dont question science they just question the questions with in it. thus people generally believe in science and dont have to worry about if the Savannah theory or the Aquatic theory is correct because they believe is the over all principle of science. i can’t be arsed with this any more tho and i will leave my unpopular comments at this. if you fail to see that science is a… Read more »

    Way to cop out. you’re mighty brave while running away. Please try to come up with a rational argument that does more than reference these two arguments that you think validate your beliefs.

    …and religion is rational to those that believe it

    Believing it is so doesn’t make something rational. It being logically consistent makes it rational. Also, itt being in line with reality makes it true.

    Knowledge source: do some research and discover when and why the scientific method was created. (hint) It had to do with studying the first book of the Bible Correction method: review over thousands of years still no contradictions found. Primary selection method: if you’re accepting indoctrination, you’re not being taught Christian principles. Test the spirit hold fast to that which is true. Reasoning method: Logic and Faith, neither mutually exclusive. Verification method: Scientific method proving the multiple creation references written over many ages at different times in different places yet not a single contradiction or discrepancy. Authentication method: Thousands of… Read more »
