1) Knowledge and use of Science serves the Devil.
Knowledge and science leads to us having better and longer lives. It doesn't serve the devil because it helps to destroy ignorance and superstition
in favor of reason and understanding. The Devil is not glorified or even seen to exist and is therefore not served.
2) The more technological and "advanced" a society becomes the more likely they will turn from God to serve the other.
The more we turn from superstition and faith the better. Instead of waiting for the supernatural to save us we can concentrate on the real world and
how to make it better for us and future generations. Instead of concentrating on appeasing an invisible sky tyrant for fear of eternal punishment we
can concentrate on living our lives to the fullest and being decent people simply because its the right thing to do. We need to be serving the other,
after all was that not the lesson that Jesus left for us? Should we not be loving ourselves and our neighbors?
3) Science has killed more people than any other single thing.
Wrong. Science has done nothing wrong. That is not to say there are not human beings that have used Science to create weapons of war. Science is
merely a TOOL to discover, it is those that use the tool unwisely who carry the blame for those that kill just as it is those who used Christ's
teachings of love to carry out Inquisitions deserve the blame while the religion does not.
But was that God's plan?
You seem to laughably suggest that modern medicine has violated God's plan. I'm sorry but isn't this God guy supposed to be ALL POWERFUL? Well if
he's all powerful than nothing can stand against his divine plan - he can steam roll it right through the petty plans of mice and men can't he? If
he chooses to let us violate his plan than our violation is part of his plan.
By the way there are ten year old kids that get cancer. Are we to assume that this is part of God's plan. If it is than God is one sick and evil
1) Science has built unimaginable killing technology from the gun to weaponized viruses.
Science did no such thing. Science is a method for discovery, it is up to US to use it responsibly. WE HUMANS have used science irresponsibly, the
guilt lies squarely with those that chose to use science to create killing machines not with the science itself.
2) How many people have been killed through modern transportation.
How many died along the Oregon trail. How many human beings died on foot before transportation was invented? I fail to see your point.
3) How many have died because of technology grown cancers.
You mean radiation from cell phones? Not sure what you mean here. If you are talking cell phones the research is inconclusive at this stage. If
you're talking something more serious like radiation from atomic weaponry than you have a point, such things are terrible but again the blame lies on
those that chose to use science to develop them NOT on the scientific method itself.
4) How many animals have gone extinct in the name of progress.
How many species have come and gone before we even got here?
5) How often do you push things of God's away to watch TV or sit on the computer
I for one completely understand why people turn to things that actually exist, like their television sets, in favor of something for which there is no
evidence, like their favorite imaginary being. Maybe if God had a TV show (and no I'm not counting those awful televangelists as God's TV show
6) Science is killing our planet (God's beautiful creation) with pollution.
What exactly do you hope to gain from this? You want to send us back to the dark ages? Like it or not science is here to stay and guess what, its
tripled the average human lifespan in only a few centuries time.
Is there pollution? Sure there is and right now guess who is working to find solutions to that problem - SCIENCE. Guess who created that problem -
It could feed all but enough is not enough for us.
You have no idea what science is do you?
Human greed, economics, politics, climate, there are a myriad of factors effecting world hunger. Science is not responsible for world hunger, science
is merely a method of discovery. Most of the countries where people are hungry are ones with very little science going on. I agree it would be nice if
we had more people working to feed the hungry but blaming the scientific method is just plain stupid.
It is the Devils conspiracy to set us on this path, a path that leads to one thing...the death of God's creation.
The Death of God's creation? But if it does lead to the death of God's Creation isn't that part of God's plan? I mean it is GOD'S PLAN, it's not
like he couldn't go through with it if we were mucking about with it.
Honestly I am not sure what to make of any of this. It just seems a load of superstitious ramblings about how bad science is simply because some
people have misused it over the years to create weapons and further industry and medicine...
Science is the best method we have for finding out what is real and what is true about our world and you know what they say about the truth... it sets
