you might be forgetting that if those scientists had have said 'god's a stupid idear you fools' then they would have been branded heratics and
either killed or at least chased out of town.
I personally don't cair if people want to belive in wizards, however if i go to a doctor i want a doctor not a quack. Sure it's a valid scientific
point that we don't know if a wizard created the earth, however teaching that truth comes from the bible rather than scientific method is not going
to get science done - science which brought us computers, cars, radio, etc, etc.... unlike religion which brought us the holy wars, witch trials, book
burnings, etc, etc.
Would you let someone who wants to kill children run your daycair center? Would you let a dem run your republican party? would you let a book burner
run your libary? a nazi your fairness and equality program?
The right person for the right job, actually i know for a fact that personal belief is not an issue in selection - actually it's down to what you say
in public, just look around this site for the things people claim 'a scientist said....' or 'scientists from england announced...' - an important
and highbrow science establishment can't have some nutter using his position as a mouthpiece for whichever crazy cult or bronzeage mystery school he
happens tobe a part of.
As for the 'free thinkers' jibe, no not all scientists are free thinkers, what are you stupid? haha, this is earth in the early 21st century!
hello? This is a whole planet of people totally unable to think for themselves, either everyone is following some crazy fad and buying into whatever
the TV sells them or they're part of some nonsence counterculture movement where everyone dresses the same, acts the same and says the same thing.
This is most likely because we evolved from pack animals, or because god is crazy - whatever you believe.
Most scientists are outdated and wrong in most of their opinons, sorry thats just how life is - we don't know anything about anything yet in the big
scale of things, we are working on getting closer to the truth however, unlike religion which is sticking dogmaticly to the first thing they thought
of (well ok they've changed it a bit but they pretend they haven't, and they fought those changes every step of the way, i.e. womens lib)
This is the exact reason that science places need to make sure they don't let any wild eyes nutjob use his position to spout some insane nonsence
which all you anti-science people will blog about on your electrical semiconductor mathmatics machines which science was more than willing to provide.
The cheek of religion calling science closed minded just boggles my mind, maybe its because i know history - the torment people like guttenburg
suffered for daring to let people read the bible! Joan of Arc burned because her concept of god was a little bit diffrent than the people who
captured her! The great libary of alexander burned to the ground on the grounds 'if its worth reading its in the bible so we know it already, if its
not in the bible then its the devils lies so burn them all!'
History is full of examples of religion, certainly christian religions, not letting people have their say - now they cry and moan when science
doesn't want to put up with their nonsence. HA billiant, i'm sure god will be real proud of you folks.
