Christianity and Science are not at odds. One is based on faith and one on evidence. Faith is not permitted in science, claims must be tested time and
time again and go through grueling peer reviews before they are finally accepted as true.
What is the measure for Biblical or religious Truth, that simply because the Bible claims to be the truth or the word of God it is?
Jesus's teachings of love have been buried under superstition and blind faith, people spend more time celebrating his horrific death than they do his
terrific life. Christianity ceased being about Christ the moment Emperor Constantine made it a state-sponsored religion, a tool of the Elite power
structure of the all but crumbling Roman Empire.
Christ's Teachings = Good, for the most part, and generally a good philosophy to live by.
Science = Should not be in conflict with religion. It is a way of finding truth, finding explanations to the world around us that make more sense than
blind superstition and have actual evidence to back them up.
Christianity = Some bizarre perversion of Christ's teachings that generally ignores the important elements of the story while hyping and emphasizing
unsubstantiated supernatural elements and a myriad of interpretations of books that have nothing at all to do with Jesus himself.
CERN/LHC = I trust that the scientists know what they are doing far more than any conspiracy theorist on the internet. The Universe will not end,
after all the Higgs Boson they are looking for existed after the Big Bang right? And it didn't do anything sinister back then. I trust that they have
done the math and that the probability for negative outcomes is minute in the extreme.
