I know, but I hope this is a different one.

1. Does anyone here notice the irony about a debate between religion and science on the internet and using computers, both scientific inventions?

2. How many people use their car to go to church while saying science is terrible? That same science created the internal combustible engine, the air conditioning system, the radio receiver of waves, etc for you to get to church.

3. When one is sick, do you visit a doctor or a specialist to get better? Again, science training at work.

4. MP3 players, smart phones, and now tablets: yes another achievement by science.

5. Any thing electrical was accomplished by early scientific experiments with electricity and learning how to harness that form of power.

Basically, the argument between science and religion is moot. Religion and science can co-exist happily as they have been for thousands of years.

I don't know many people who say otherwise tbh!

Personally I think more collaberation from both would be a good thing to see, but I suppose there would be many who would disagree!

No, science isn't that big a deal, as long as you don't create things like Nukes........

and see that's what we did. Jesus said in scripture.

" Unless those days have been shortened no flesh would be saved "

Because soon science which created nukes which will go off one after another which God will have to intervene in and stop.

But as for phones, cds, all that, I got an xbox 360, that's all, time consumming, but it's not that big a deal.


Yea OP, btw I'm getting tired of those debates too.

It's not a moot argument for some people, and they don't necessarily coexist happily. For the rabid believer, no amount of evidence will undo their tenacious hold on the claims of religion and scientific discovery must be fought, as it clearly contradicts their belief. Certainly, the benefit they receive from the sciences while they argue against it is comical but the zealot will always remain undeterred.

If many people do think science and technology are so terrible, why not live like the Amish or other peoples who do not use electricity? I would like to see how long they would last doing that.

Thank you all for your responses.

Nope, because, 9 times out of 10, it's the folks who claim science as their God that say we Christians despise science.

None that I know...


3. When one is sick, do you visit a doctor or a specialist to get better? Again, science training at work.
Yep, and I ask my friends for prayer, as well.


4. MP3 players, smart phones, and now tablets: yes another achievement by science.
And many church messages are now being streamed on the internet. I've seen many of them. Haven't seen any sermons on the evils of science, though...


5. Any thing electrical was accomplished by early scientific experiments with electricity and learning how to harness that form of power.
And as I write this, I write it on a computer displaying what I write on a cathode ray tube monitor, eagerly looking forward to looking up information on a quantum mechanics article I recently read talking about information flowing backwards through time on the quantum and possibly macro scale. I find it quite fascinating, and, if true, could shake my non-Calvinist view of predestination. However, given your post, it would seem that I, being a Christian, couldn't fathom that science could influence my theology. Yet, there it is...

1. I did not mention Christianity at all in my thread.

2. I did not state all people who are religious regard science as evil or another religion. (I should of clarified that in my OP. My apologies to anyone who thought otherwise.) Many scientists and doctors are people of various faiths out there.

3. This thread was also meant to be lighthearted to show how moot some of these arguments.

4. I should also disclose that I am a Pagan and I have also written about how materialism has replaced spirituality in humanity.
