Re: Science meets Faith
We have replicable observations, as required. We have any number of tests, as required

To be fair, though, we are lacking a magic book, written a few thousand years ago, by bronze age priests with no scientific awareness.


Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Re: Science meets Faith
Remarkable how the evos bring the Bible into this discussion when all I've brought into it is scientific considerations.

Are you seriously trying to maintain that some scientists looked at the geological evidence, then said "You know what, all this evidence points to something like a global flood about 4,000 or so years ago. What's that Leeroy ? Are you saying that something called...what was that...'the Bible'...said that the world was destroyed by a flood sent by God about 4,000 years ago ? You are totally shitting me Leeroy !!!"

"Evos" (aka people who understand the scientific method) simply follow where the evidence takes them. The only reason that global floods ever get mentioned in the context of geology is because creationists start there with their desired conclusion, and then desperately try to cherry pick and warp the evidence to fit the desired result.

If you say there is evidence of a global flood, you are referencing the bible. That's what you do Faith, not us "evos".

Edited by vimesey, : Better tribute to Mr Jenkins by spelling his name right.
