There's no "belief" when it comes to science. There's also no "scienceism". Science is ALL about evidence. Thing that can be tested and replicated. So no "belief" is involved.

The only thing being tested and replicated is gullibility.

Those who blindly believe whatever Science throws out are no different from any other fundamentalist cult.

Science - The Illuminati Religion and Mind Control Tool for the Masses


Science can be tested by ANYONE. Just because you refuse to believe it (without testing it) doesn't make it wrong.

And that's why science is the exact opposite of what you say it is.

As for cults? You mean every religion in the world? They fit more to the meaning of the word cult.

Yeah there's no reason to trust science, I mean what has it ever produced?

Whereas belief in supernatural spooky Jews has given us..........

You're the very definition of 'projection'

I can't think of anything science has given us. Science only denies god.

Why shouldn't I think there's a true religion?


Because humans are terrible guessers without evidence and that's all religions are. This is why science uses empirical evidence to support its claims.

You must mean paganism?



This is where Godless religions always end up.

Man is his own worst enemy in everything he does.
Even science.

You just showed your true ignorance right there.

Try googling what paganism actually is.

Which is what?

That non Christian religions lead to violence and human sacrifice? And you cite a hollywood movie as evidence? It's pretty well known that Apocalypto was very highly exaggerated. Are you not familiar with the history of Christianity in the middle ages, where folks were slowly tortured in the most painful ways imaginable just for questioning the idea of god, or the crusades where millions were murdered in the name of god? Plus the Mayans were not godless, they believed in multiple gods. I don't think your post could have failed any harder than it did.

Perfect ending for the thread.

Oh that's right, I've always been fascinated by the correlation
between their heathen worship of a feathered serpent God.
And how the Bible explains exactly who that God is from
beginning to end. And also the oddity of science refusing
to acknowledge the correlation. Funny how that God demanded
human sacrifice. I wonder if he was mocking the one sacrifice that
could save man? And were the aztecs isolated in their worship
of such a God? No, in fact there is evidence of this same worship
globally. Again recorded by the ancient text. Don't you find that
fascinating?

What correlation should science acknowledge? There's no scientific data for any of them, only mythology.

No I don't find that fascinating, because as I said above, the Aztecs and Mayans both had numerous gods. So basically you are cherry picking one out of dozens of gods and using it to infer that it is the devil and hence their entire belief system is evil and wrong without even attempting to understand their other gods or associated beliefs.

But such is the biased mind. Nothing ever makes logical sense. Wild speculation on top of wild speculation to justify your worldview. Good luck with that. I know it feels good to put yourself on a pedestal above everyone else, but nobody's buying that crap. The intolerance you have for differing viewpoints is absurd, I'm sorry.

No, I wouldn't go that far. There are plenty of myths I can put in a Petri dish so to speak and test for via the scientific method. And who knows, there are some wonky things going on in the minds of theoretical physicists. Perhaps one day they will arrive at tenable evidence that supports a creator or godlike apparition. If that evidence occurs, I'll be the first in line to admit I've been wrong all these years. Right now, based on the evidence at hand, all I see are angry Christians condemning me to hell. The Jews don't bother with me, the Hindis and Sikhs don't judge me or use vulgar epithets in attempts to denigrate me or how I choose to live. Only fundamentalists Christians and the hardline Muslims they have so much in common with.

But that's just it PV if there was tenable evidence for our
Creator, that would completetly negate faith. Faith that only
comes from belief. Belief that comes from common sense.
And none of it having a damn thing to do with mans knowledge.
That our Father in Heaven has set himself against. And the reasons
are so obvious. Our knowledge with out guidance, is like a bull in
a china cabinet. We possess a misguided knowledge and the
evidence of that becomes more clear everyday. Obviously
Our misguided knowledge is leading to one thing. Theb total
distruction of earth and ourselves.

Oh dear.

What does faith in god have to do with common sense? The only reason you call it that is because you have faith, so it kind of negates the common sense aspect. Wild speculation is not common sense, sorry. Misguided knowledge? That insinuates that somebody is falsely guiding the science, but when has the evidence pointed to that?

There is no evidence of misguided knowledge, there is evidence of a picture that is being painted and the picture becomes clearer with more evidence. There's some basic common sense for ya.

But the god you worship has allegedly made itself known to a bunch of illiterate bronze age people multiple times. Why does that god no longer commune with those it wants to inspire?


Belief that comes from common sense.


I'm going to have to disagree with you hear. Faith isn't about common sense, especially when it flies in the face of reality. Your faith was determined by geography. Where you were born is the entire basis for the religious beliefs of all men and women who have faith. Had you been born in another part of the world


And none of it having a damn thing to do with mans knowledge.

But that entire premise contradicts the origins of the 4 Abrahamic faiths. The god of Abraham made itself known to many people according to scripture. It's awfully convenient that he's been nowhere to be seen for 1400 years.

ILLERTERATE? Now that is just a harsh indictment amigo.
Considering someone had the obvious brain power to
build the great pyramid. A task we couldn't dream of
undertaking even today. I hang iron and install glass on
high rise buildings my brother. And I know damn well we
couldn't perform the same task. All we would do is lose
the most powerful cranes attempting it. So take the
college course that that taugfht you that hobo crap,
and put it in the dark where it belongs. If anything
our ancesters can be proved to be much more intelligent
than us. There world was just more primitive. And that's
the only thing that allows you to squawk that transient BS.
I truly depise that way of thinking.

What are you talking about? Do you not know what illiterate means? It means you can't read or write. It has nothing to do with knowing the engineering feats required to build the pyramids. Plus knowing engineering doesn't mean you aren't superstitious.
