One's belief in anything science, atheism or any given god is a religion. The belief in mathematics's ability to explain all of the world around us is a religion, the same with belief in one's self.

The operative word is Belief.

The difference is in the basis for belief. In science beliefs change when evidence indicates that beliefs should. The most important statement a scientist can make is "I don't know". In religion beliefs become doctrine and holding fast to doctrine becomes really important. Questioning doctrine and trying to change it is called heresy.

To borrow an old phase "Where the Rubber Meets the Road" the human element has an effect on both.
Often in science it is what you don't look for that is as important as what you looked for. in religion interpretation is the same element of chance.

The early Chorlestorl drugs worked by blocking a chemical that was used in the formation of Cholesterol The problem is the same chemical was used in the formation of co-enzyme Q-10 an essential nutrient for the maintenance of cells. Those statin drugs caused more problems than they "cured". come to find out that dietary cholesterol doesn't directly effect cholesterol in the first place.

Science is only as good as the people who do the science.
Religion is only as good as the honesty of the people preaching the religion.

The human element in both is the problem, but we have to live with it.

A very smart man once told me, "what you believe doesn't matter, it's what the people who control your life believe that really matters."...

If the people that make the laws here in California believe that when you die your soul goes into the oil drip pan in a garage in East LA; they are going to act accordingly, and it will effect me. It pays to know what your leaders believe, God help you if they believe they are superior to you.

I believe that this thread, while still staying very civil, is getting too close to locking territory.
It was fun while it lasted.
Same here, I enjoy reading it, and I appreciate the civil conduct.  Mentioning religion tends to push the wrong buttons with Management.

The new goal is now to be the last poster before this tread gets locked.
It can't contain insults, no spam, nothing implicit against the rules, no harrasment, but in any way or another has to trigger the LOCK button.

(For the ones who are still not ready to get unplugged: this is a joke)

I'd disagree. I'd say science is only as good as the people who do the science are honest. Religion is only as good as the ability of the followers to ignore it.

If the preachers were honest and really believed what they claim to not a single religion would have a group as tolerant as the Westboro Baptist Church. Well apart from maybe Jainism. Every other religion, including political ideologies, has it's fanatics that will happily kill for and as a direct result of their beliefs.

I think we are close enough to saying the same thing.

Pardon me, but is this a 5 minute argument or the full half hour?

No, more the 30 second shouting match at the "other eedjit" in the other car as he/she/they/it passes doing something that you disagree with.

Can be cathartic, but often just leads to frustration, and to the going all Harry Potter and the Unnamed One Who No Longer Is Here style of actions.

Although as they say about calcium carbonate, lithic formations, lignin and low amplitude vibration, nothing comes from it. It merely serves to pass the time between the first moment where there is a concept of self and the last coherent concept of self.

Ans, as it is a new Year, if you are of that faith, we should all look forward to a good year ahead and put the past behind us, and learn a sound lesson from both our mistakes and those who also made them.
