Q. Isn't science a religion?
Think about it. Have you ever seen air, atoms, molecules, or evolution? No. FACT.

Science requires just as much faith (if not more) than religion. FACT.

I have never seen an intelligent fundie, yet I believe there's still at least one left out there.

You ever walk outside on a really cold day and take a breath and watch the cold mist come out? That's air you fucktard.

10/8/2012 4:38:25 AM


Oh there's no point to it. I can only suggest that this poster prove there's no such thing as air by ceasing to breathe.

I saw a picture of an atom just the other week. You were saying?

You are an idiot. FACT.

Doubting Thomas

Can we measure air, atoms, molecules, and evolution in some way? Yes.

Can we measure God in any way? No.

Does putting "FACT" after your assertion make it true? No.

Are conservative Christians too stupid to spell "patriot?" Apparently.

Jezebel's Evil Sister

Nor can christian conservatives spell "parrot."

I've seen the effects of air, diagrams of atoms, photographs of molecules taken using a microscope, and I've read from a variety of credible sources about the evolution of bacteria, fruit-flies etc, which people have actually observed. I don't see where faith comes into it.
N.B. Writing "FACT" at the end of something does not make it so. FACT.

Smells of Poe.

Yes. I have.

I seem to be on the wrong site. I didn't realize this was "Poes say the darndest things."

Hint: look at what the asker chose as the best answer

Mister Spak

So your computer is powered by faith? The faith flows through the wire that's plugged into the wall? The faith comes from a spinniing faith generator that is turned by a turbine spun by combusting faith gas?

I am forced to agree that science requires just as much faith as religion.

You know what? You fundies can go ahead and call science a religion. Embrace that, scream it from the mountaintops. It will only speed up your religion's demise. Science works and the vast majority of people KNOW that it works.

Judaism: YHWH is the almighty. Those who do not believe are forever damned. If it can be understood, it is not God, and therefore it is most impertinent of you to ask for any evidence in regards to this self-evident truth.

Christianity: Jesus died for your sins. If you don't accept this, you will burn in hell forever. I don't have to prove that. You have to disprove it. (And did I mention burning in hell for doubting?)

Islam: Allah is the great one. Those who mock our creed will be beheaded. Those who ask for evidence to support our claims will be excommunicated (and then beheaded for apostasy).

Science: Here is the way nature, the universe and everything works. You don't have to take our word for it. You can try this stuff out for yourself, and if you ask us for evidence, we'll be perfectly happy to provide a deluge of it for you. (And if you still don't believe us, we'll probably think you're an idiot, but that's about it.)

One of these things is not like the other things.

10/8/2012 6:28:16 AM

Apparently, spelling requires faith, too.

10/8/2012 6:43:04 AM


Have you ever seen air, atoms, molecules, or evolution? No. FACT.

Not a fact. Atoms and molecules can be seen, and evolution has happened, both in nature and in the laboratory.

Faith is a belief without any rational basis. You're confusing it with inductive reasoning.

10/8/2012 7:28:56 AM

Ive never seen actual molecules, only models, and pictures gathered from microscopes far more powerful than the one in a college lab. but it gets pretty hard to deny the existence of those things when you can consistently perform and observe chemical reactions that always work the same way.

FACT science may require faith, but only in the "i think, therefore i am" sense. it requires as much faith as believing that everything and everyone around you is not merely a figment of your imagination

Dr. Razark

"Have you ever seen air, atoms, molecules, or evolution?"

Yes. Maybe not with eyes, but they have all been directly observed.

Ask mummy for a dictionary (a book that tells you how to spell words) and ask again when you're older, then we'll explain it all to you.

Can we scientifically prove the existence of air, atoms, molecules and evolution? YES.

Can we scientifically prove the Virgin Birth, feeding of the multitudes, water being turned into wine, the supposed raising of Lazarus from the dead, or the curing of the blind man? NO.

Even if science were a religion, it's one that gets actual results through its practice. It would make sense to follow it over religions that do nothing.

10/8/2012 8:39:30 AM


In winter, when it's freezing, you can see the hot air coming out from your lungs. Atoms and molecules can be seen in microscopes. Evolution is experienced each year when a new flu vaccine is needed.

Science require evidence and explanations, not faith.

What's a "Patriet"?

10/8/2012 8:48:06 AM


Yeah most probably poe.
