Viviane and all the other religious faith haters
I know I will regret posting this….but
Why all the hostility, why do you have so much angst for
people of faith? By the very definition of
the word faith, it will not satisfy you, therefore you should not be surprised at
the outcome to your questions.
Also, realize that even in the world of science and medicine,
there are unknowns, and have been miscalculations and error. Does it make them ignorant because of that,
or any less intelligent for putting forth something that was understood at the
time to be correct but now after refinements and increased knowledge the
answers or solutions have been modified.
Quite frankly, looking back at science and medicine, there have been
some downright silly explanations put forth back in the day. But that doesn’t mean I do not respect my
physician now because they displayed a barber pole outside their practices and
would cut you open and bleed you if you had a headache.
Let me ask you a question, explain gravity, what does it
look like, how does it feel, and if we are so sure about this force why can’t
we control it or manipulate it? It cannot
be absorbed, transformed, or shielded against, why is this? Perhaps I should question its existence altogether? But yet, I realize it must be real, that
hammer I dropped on my foot surely demonstrated its existence. But I really do not understand it fully, I
mean, if I can mathematically quantify it, I should be able to come up with a
method to shield it, oh well, I’ll keep trying the tinfoil hat approach, dah, because
I must be an ignorant faithtard because I can’t explain this gravity force fully.
Why can't scientific people simply say "I don't
know"? What is wrong with that level of honesty? Why all the claims to
know stuff and, when caught NOT knowing any of that stuff, the insults, the
subject changing, the pretend answers?
The wild calculations of abiogenesis, the crazy story that somehow life
just started, yep from amino acids, energy, a lightning spark and then from the
primordial ooze, bam life just happens, and then evolving into an upright
walking bipod much less just a slimy amoeba floating around. Really?
This is as credulous a belief as any, and this is the best theory
academia can come up with, “it just happened and all by chance”? I simply don't get it
Next time when you have to explain to a lay person how we
can send pictures, drawings, books, data, files, etc. over the ether halfway across
the world, think about your question of communicating to God and you will have
your answer, and all the backup source material you need.
Look, I apologize, I am being really sarcastic to make a
point, and I do understand what you’re conveying, but please do not categorize all
theologians or religious persons of faith as unreasoned or illogical, and for
the smart ass that wants to argue faith and reason is mutually exclusive, do
not waste your time. All and all, there
are many viewpoints to each side, I make no claim to having the correct side,
but I do get to form my own conclusions without prejudice or fear of malice.
Nacho: I'm a little concerned right now. About... your
salvation and stuff. How come you have not been baptized?
Esqueleto: Because I never got around to it ok? I dunno why
you always have to be judging me because I only believe in science.
