First, I must clarify exactly what type of religious belief I'm discussing. I'm discussing the religious belief in an all powerful deity who created the entire universe and everything within.
How many times have you seen discussions about how the flood myth violates the laws of physics, or that ghost stories violate the principles of biology? While these discussions may be based upon real and verifiable rules and laws, they seem to me to miss the point. Religious belief is not contradicted by the physical rules of the universe, rather, religious belief is bolstered by them. After all, how can an action be miraculous or godlike if it comports with the laws of nature? If God actually exists and created the laws of the universe, why should we doubt stories of him arbitrarily ignoring those same laws?
Given this premise, discussion of the physical laws of nature has little place in topics of religion. From the opposite side, religious believers have no place trying to support their world views with the laws of nature. Why should dna evidence that suggests a common ancestor mean anything to a believer when he is already so apt to discard any other physical evidence?
