Dear God/Science Forum readers and writers,

I`m irregularly in and out of this post for God and Science and I feel the subject itself is very interesting. Maybe our host could guide us all to what is meant by a God and Science Post. I am under the impression that if science can approach the subject of god in any way, that these variations on the theme are allowed here.
I witness two main categories of entries: 1)
those posters (many names for one person or many names for many people, I can`t judge this) who wish to scientifically explain historical and new perspectives of God, and 2) those posters which wander from the subject, the most common wandering to me seeming to be people compaining about the posters of the first group.
I can`t really compare the complainers or the proposers of two letter word, Ah, as the complaints seem to outweigh any postings supporting the subject.
Maybe the person(s) who don`t like some of the subject matter here might use intellectual arguement against the subject matter rather than randomly complaining about it.
Maybe the forum shouldn`t even exist. That would seem a good goal for athiests or religious persons who don`t believe in science.
Or maybe, better yet, in my opinion, the Host would like to post something regarding rules and goals of this God/Science forum.
I personally believe in host and guest relationships as the foundation for peace on earth. But then I personnally believe in God as the ultimate host. And I believe in the ability of science to get much closer to explaining humanity`s spiritual experiences than is taught our children today. I don`t think science is anywhere near complete if it can`t explain spiritual experiences. Evolution would be failing us to not have weeded out the aspect of a human which can experience God. We wouldn`t be adapting if the spirit was fictional.
Thus, Host, who are you and what do you think?
A sincere poster, Frank.
