Thread: Science V. Theology

  1. #1

    Default Science V. Theology

    Do these two schools of thought have a place to meet?

    If you're from the United State or the E.U. do you think if a religion and science back the same conclusion, that science should be suppressed to help suppress a religious agenda?

    Or do you believe in non overlapping magesteria where these two institutions never meet or conflict?

Fake islam doesn't cause evidentally its like, you make up your own definition of islam, and that's why it appeals to the lazy and weak of will.

    Observation is a curious phenomenon itself, I'd say philosophy is observation, science is more data. But I get what you're getting at.

    i think religion is ok for religious ppl cause that have some unexplained need for it and if they need it then fuck it they need it.

    if it isn't officially called religion then they'll obsess blinding about something else

    gangs,
    nationalism
    army
    internet forums
    white people
    wutang

    whatever, so yeah, if its not a 'religion' it'll be something else.
    what ppl dont understand is ppl have every fixed unbreakable needs for shit that if they don't get in a functional way they'll get in a unfunctional way but either way they're getting it. that's how alot of personality disorders start. that's just my theory. my sound theory (july 09)

    Well, there's that, but we also must acknowledge when debating the reality of whether something exists on the order of God, gods or deities, just because people desire something, that is not necessarily a proof or disproof.


    Philosophy is considered by many to be secondary science, since it was philosophers who first gave us naturalism.

    My concern is when we have people in science who say something absolutely must be random or unintelligible.
    In the short 200 years of formal natural science, we have already warped nature to our will.
    It is entirely possible an entity physical or otherwise can do the same if our limited minds can do it.

    Blind faith is dangerous though, religion itself isn't bad but when you lack reason with your faith you are completely lost.
    That's when religion becomes organized religion, that's when I get dumb protestants bitching about my swearing when Jesus cursed desciples.

    Jesus gets immortalized, I get made into a pariah

    Well, we are on the verge of the first entirely synthetic microbes, we've moved species to different parts of the world creating new types of mutation and accelerating in the case of the adriatic lizards the rate of mutation in some species.


    humans give themselves way too much credit. we think we're god like or exceptional for discoverring the flight birds have been doing for billions of years. we didn't invent flight we can't destroy it, its just there as solid universal rules and we're doing something with it, but we really haven't gone 'that far'.

    I agree that we haven't come as far as we've given ourselves credit for and that science is pretty much just us stumbling onto things. However, I think the quantum demonstrates that nothing is universally law.

    also yeah things are random and unintelligble.
    There are non random things also, natural selection for instance is a non-random filter. We've made intelligible things. A team of British scientists this week actually created human sperm from scratch(hold laughter)

    But the assumption there is no consciousness to the universe is just that, an assumption.
    Basis for it is not full proof and there are counter arguments. We should avoid establishing naturalistic dogma and calling that science as well.

    Objective is to be neutral when unsure and not to let agenda or passion get us into dogmatic pretension.
    As you said, we've only come so far, the question of universal consciousness is one that I don't feel we can answer just yet.

    well look who crawled out of the

    depends on the theology and how you interpert the scripture

    the Adam of 4000bc story for instance talks about how Adam was placed in the garden of Eden who's 4 rivers in Africa/Arabia....kicked out and a angel with a flaming sword patrolled the borders......ahhhhh tells so much and yet so scientifical

    Islam is I Solar LUnar Architect Manifested meaning a human being with unbending intent striving 2 be Allah in the person...the God that Jesus prayed 2 in the person......

    which is faaaaaaaaaar better to strive 4 instead of TSA's stance which encourages internet addiction...and getting continuously shitted on and comming back for more...a feekaholic

    yes striving to be GOd would defineatly encourage the opposite of weakness and laziness

    now as far as your little thing at the bottom...TSBA

    the Assasination of Malcolm X was planned by the United States Intelligence Community, Military, and so on and so forth

    religion is for the blind



    not saying don't believe in God or whatever, but following one particular sect is just dumb imo...they all preach the same thing, that they're more right than others

    the blind can't see the benefits of religion

    so called religious leaders use the blind


    some religious leaders help the blind to see


    very few religious leaders feel the need to help people


    majority of the people don't care about people

    its not religions fault


    a community is made from the words of prophets

    iLL people come into the community and infect the community

    if that religious leader doesn't create a military to defend the "patients"

    the iLL will take over -
