: The problem is people deny it with different strengths... : SOME of us have realised the truth, and we know we'll probably never in our lives be able to understand WHY we live.. WHY we die.. >> In other words, SOME of us have decided to stop trying to understand the world in any logical sense, and have decided to live life according to interpretations of "God". : Why we get older, what happens after death... You cant prove that the scientists are right, neither can you prove they'r wrong, : although, you can prove they have ideas, which from time to time fail, cause they find something new... >> This is the nature of science...to get to the closer approximation of the truth, a better description. Yes, you can prove science is right or wrong, that is the core of science and discovery. Religion, however, is an attempt to describe the unknown without proof but with interpretation of those questions that you ask. I would rather live with a tenet of science that is disproven later than with a tenet of religion that stands in ignorance. : Scientists are only human beings, ironically? No, but humans cant understand the power of God... >> In other words, science is a great thing, as long as it doesn't apply itself towards God. Don't even bother trying... : Ok, I, for myself, have some majour proves to Gods existance... : Would I need them to believe? No... >>If you had grown up on a desert island with no religious backround, would you still believe in the same God that you do now? : I have some happenings in my life that cant be proved with scientific rules... : They can only be explained with the LOVE OF GOD.. >>I wonder, why don't these "proofs" ever happen to world leaders and scientists, and not just average joe-believer.... : Cause he does exist, I know it, you do too.. : Deep inside yourself, its just a matter of time... >>I've heard this before, only from Nazi groups that say "you know that we are right, deep down you know that (place ethnic group of choice here) are inferior". Interesting argument? or ignorant argument? I'm sorry I may sound rude and mean-spirited, but this is the kind of thinking that sinks the whole religious boat. If I were a religious person, I would still not agree with you, not one bit.
