Well in that case -

Attention all members of this God and Science forum. I invite you all to post to this question.

Aurino, if you could please save your comments until after Mike replies it would help matters. I know how you like to hear what he says first, then pucker up. Thanks

This is a simple question which could lead to much more complex ponderings so try something different and give me a chance.


God has been mentioned only a few times on this site, in fact once IT was referred to as dark matter by one of the distinguished members of the forum (you know who you are). Anyway...

Can the belief in God every be rationalized with a true belief in the scientific method. Has the advent of skepticism killed God? Nietzche said that God was dead? Many prominent scientists today are openly athiestic (it is almost as trendy as saying you are homosexual, not that there is anything wrong with that)just look at Richard Dawkins, the late Sagan, and all the way back to Darwin and Einstein. Has science killed God? And if not, isn't it only through major rationalizations and justifications that we can rectify the differences between belief and skeptical attititudes? Won't religious devotion always conflict with questioning and contemplation. And, Cliff, you can't use the bible to answer this question - Mike would call that circular logic. Is that a post hoc or ad hoc, Mikey.

There is a question here. I would like to hear your opinions if you have any, or I would also like to see a step-by-step answer based in logic (not sloppy logic though, it is in bad taste here)

I hope you all find my post worthy of your time here - thanks
