Afropuff, you make very compelling points; however, your sloppy spelling, typographical errors and occasional ungrammatical sentence structuring detract from the high quality of your thought. You consistently mispelled the word "terrestrial" with the nonexistent word "terrestial." Your coup-de-grace point contained in your final sentence would be better conveyed when written as "Despite your good grasp of the concept of science and of apparently the scientific method, you yourself depart from rationality, or scientific reasoning, by concluding a belief in a spiritual existence based on nothing subject to objective evidence, proof or substantiation." In credit to your individualized observation in this sentence, I extrapolate generally that perhaps the irreconcilable rift between the concepts of God and science lies in the circumtance that claims of the existence of a God, or the divine, are not amenable to objective substantiation but that the hypotheses, theories and phenomena of science necessitate objective substantiation.
