For example, without Scripture you have no way of determining the nature of the universe.

Actually scientists are doing a really good job so far without it.

Without scripture you might have a fighting chance of determining the REAL nature of the universe.

Yeah, scripture pages form lovely weed rolls. Makes your mind work 2x clearer and faster.

Exactly. I would turn Solas' comment around and say that
Scripture you have
way of determining the nature of the universe, because that stuff will misdirect you constantly.

If by \"Scripture\" you mean scientific instruments and devices, we're right there with you.
The Bible is missing directions for chromosome analysis, seismic investigation and telescope construction, just to list a few. The math is off. I think you may be mistaken.

Scripture is made up of what people knew and believed in the BRONZE AGE. With our new nifty technology, we have sort of moved on since.

Science does that job quite nicely.
Almost a Fundyism in a Nutshell contender. Almost.
I think by "nature" Christians ususally mean the intelligence and the purpose of it all.
Still wrong and arrogant because they are still saying, "Only we have the answers to everything"

Without astronomy you have no way of determining the nature of the universe.

So what's science then, chopped liver?

Allegory for Jesus
Indeed. Without the Bibble, I would have never learned anything about atoms, electricity, chemical reactions, circulatory systems, anatomy, neurobiology, ecology, game theory, nuclear fission and fusion, geological strata, and evolution. Or, Heaven forbid, I learn elsewhere the even more important lessons of the wrong ways to have sex, what day of the week you're not allowed to work on, the cleansing properties of blood, and how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. Thank you Bibble, for giving an answer to all of life's questions!

The Bible is a lousy means to determine the nature of the universe. It talks about firmament, the sun, moon and stars being stuck in some kind of ceiling, about the four corners of the Earth, and other such nonsense. Just walk up a mountain and look around you, and you will see that the Earth is round (at least a round disk), not square.
Going to the moon in 1969 was much more informative in determining the nature of the universe, than your dusty old book.
The curious unpudding
You mean that particular anthology of fairytales that was put together by a bunch of bronze age dimwits who claimed they knew someone who knew someone who knew some carpenter who claimed that his mother was raped by an invisible deity to beget him? Oh yes, of course, how could I disagree with something so obvious.
For example, you're an idiot.
