I have read through my previous posts, and I`m sorry but I do not see where I condemned Christians, saying that "they are intelligent only in theology" and that they "have limited knowledge of other things." Anyone who does say that is out of line, because I`m sure that there are many very learned Christians, who know much more about science than I, Evenstar, or you, for that matter.

I did not become skilled in science because I had been "tutored by someone in the past that had been previously done the same way." I am not skilled in science, not nearly as much as many others who post on this forum. I am still learning about science, as I am merely an undergraduate student. And I do not pretend to be what I am not.

"You ask a Christian "How can you Believe?" they reply "How can you not believe?" which would probably be your reply to the same about science"
Well, sir or madam, if a Christian or anyone for that matter asked me "How can you believe" something about science, I would not reply "How can you not believe." I would provide all of the empirical evidence that has been gathered, and use it as my answer. Then I would reply "What else, if anything, can I do to help you understand that it is true?"

"Christians have just as much evidence to prove their missions in life as you do in yours."
I do not understanf what you mean in this statement. Please Clarify.

"The key is to study theology." That, my friend, is what I am currently doing.

"You dont become a scientist by watching television all day." The definition of `scientist` being `A person having expert knowledge of one or more sciences,` one can become a scientist by watching television all day, if one watches the correct channels
