True. You should pay your taxes. It was Caesar's inscription on the coin, not God's.

The guy who invented pasteurization? It's not like the process is performed solely by praying over a bucket of milk. It requires science. Actual physics and biology and chemistry.
And thanks for the blessing. I'm glad we can be civil even if we hail from opposite sides of the fenxe.
I'm missing a crucial piece of the puzzle here, and hope that you will enlighten me.
Question: Why is it that you think that, simply because a man is "religious", he can only accomplish things by "praying over a bucket of milk"?
Is this another example of someone who does not comprehend that there is a difference between religion and science? One who does not understand that they answer entirely different questions, and provide entirely different (note that "different" does not mean "mutually exclusive") answers, because the questions are different and thus require different answers?
It's not a disability to admit to such - it was a PhD Rocket Scientist (actually an Astronomer, rather than a Rocket Scientist, whose PhD was from Yale - don't hold that against him!) who explained that difference to me many years ago, before which I did not understand the difference myself.
Because of the difference, they are NOT mutually exclusive, according to the astronomer. Instead, they answer different questions, making them, according to him, mutually complimentary rather than exclusionary at all.
One would no more "pray over a bucket of milk" to Pasteurize it than one would wire a DC generator into a holy man to give him "spirit power".

I am offended that two people here and one person said twice "praying over a bucket of milk", this shows their mocking bias. If Louise Pasteur was a professed atheist, oh how they would laud his discoveries. And Pasteur discovered more than the process of Pasteurization folks.
This is the point, again. Louise is an an example of a scientist (microbiologist) who is/was faithful to God in a powerful way, he was very devout. God directed Pasteur to his discoveries. Since all good things come from God, some of this good is realized by "science" AND a small amount of God's truth is professed in man-made "religion."
Remember for the time ahead, the fullness of God's revelation is only found in the "Faith", there is only one Faith, Roman Catholicism. Everything one knows of Christ less the Old Testament prophesies came from her. God is going to show every soul on the earth this fact personally very "soon" to enlighten and change hearts, hoping His children choose for Him.
May the Two Hearts J+M keep you safe neno,
