It is regretable when religion tries to teach science. They invariably get it wrong, if not now then a few years from now when science has changed its fickle mind.

So with regard to this quote from your post:

"Matter cannot be created or destroyed. It can only be organized, unorganized, and reorganized. At least, this is my understanding of matter. It's what's taught in my faith and seems to have a scientific compliance. "

It does not have scientific compliance. It did during the classical period of physics. But now it is know experimentally and particularly in Heiroshima and Nagasaki that Matter can be destroyed, and it is know experimantally that matter can be created, both energy as in the EPR experimants and in the absence of energy from the vacuum due quantum fluctuations.

So one of the conclusions of a forum like this one is that religion should stay out of science.

What do you think? On this forum we have witnessed both Islam and Buddhism being promoted by claiming consistency with modern science. Do you think that is wise, for more often than not, the science religion teaches is incomplete or just plain wrong.

Affectionately,

Richard
