I will start this off by saying that I was semi active in church and believed in a higher power until I was 13. When I reached this age I found
logical questions could not be answered by the church or it's members. I kept on getting the "faith" answer. This is what started my new approach
on the outlook on life.
I have since noticed that people of religion feel the need to push their views on everyone else. By this I mean commenting about the bible, god ,
Jesus and so on. Even if the topic has nothing to do with religion. Mainly science and technology where even some of the scientists that study various
topics are religous. It seems like with every new science discovery made there is a flood of religous believers and non believers that try to make the
subject into a religous war. Where the one's doing the studying or research has to constantly defend their belief or stance on religion. When all
they wanted to do was enlighten the world to new discoveries. While I know that the U.S. is a free country and people can speak their mind(for the
most part), so please do not use this as an excuse.There is a few questions that I have for the hardcore believers that make Jesus the staple of every
comment or post made in a science setting.
Do you feel that new discoveries threaten your belief system?
Why do you feel that it is necessary to put your religous outlook into a conversation that has nothing to do with religion?
Have you ever pondered that your outlook could be wrong and all of these scientific discoveries are leading to the answers that we all want to know,
or is it blind faith that will have it's hold on you for the rest of your days and your children's days?(I realize that my outlook could be
While if it were a scientific fact that 'GOD" created everything and there is undeniable evidence of this, I could accept this as the way it is;
could you accept it if science proved without a doubt that life was not created and life is abundant all over the universe and there is absolutely no
evidence of life being created or would you continue to believe blindly without evidence that god exists?
Do you think we should disregaurd all of the scientific studies that contradict the religous perpective?
While I mean no harm to anyone or ego's to be damaged, I would like people to take time to ponder these questions and reply. I in no way intend on
bashing people about their views and neither should any body else.
This might seem like a rant, but I would like to know peoples perspectives on their religous and scientific views and why is it that people must use
their religous beliefs in everyday conversations. I know these conversations get driven into the ground, but I just don't get it.
If you feel like commenting do, If you do not, then don't. This is the thread to work these questions out (nicely and respectfully). This is a
sincere thread from an individual that scratches his head on the comments of some people.
