Not you as an individual Ken.

However, a lot of religious dogma has that ever expanding explanation when science overcomes religious superstition such as, " Well it shows god is more cleaver than we thought"
answer like when fossils where discovered or the germ theory was found or how natural selection works through evolution.

Isaac Asimov was right!

His first story title?

The Nine Billion Names of God. A story that has the best final sentence ever written, IMHO.

ETA: Phoo, that was written by Arthur C. Clarke.

Asimov's first story was Nightfall in any case. Still a terrific last sentence.

Gosh Ken,

I'm not sure I can even begin to answer that.

But I hope for all of humanity, all of them!

Then again, good science takes a long time so more than likely I will be dead before I see any superstitions refuted.

However, the way technology is growing exponentially, maybe I can live to find out?

You appear to hold to the notion that science and religion cannot coexist.  I deny that notion.  I see science and religion using different methods to describe different truths.  Religion has its limits, as does science.  Science is best used to describe/explain the truths of our physical universe.  Religion is best used to describe/explain the truths of human interaction, emotion, and spiritual life.  I see zero contradiction between the two.

As for science "overcoming superstition" that will NEVER happen.  Humans are sadly naturally superstitious.  LOTS of folks today substitute (pseudo)scientific superstition for religious superstition.  It remains superstition.

And on the subject of "food for thought", do you get the meaning of Clarke's The Nine Billion Names of God?

You'd gotten "pigeonholed" to a "side" from assumption.

That's been occurring enough (assumptions of where  posters belong as to "sides") that I guessed there's almost enough people for a party and so chips came to mind.

Ah...interesting subject and drift subjects.

I wonder if god calls it a "me" object.
Does he/she/it object that such a small object be named after it?

Wonder if god will sue for taking his name...after all it is already in use...sort of like "threepete"???

Religion is man's means to control the masses before governments became powerful enough to take over.

Imagine a cardinal in full regalia sitting at a lonely telescope on some cold mountain top staring at the universe and god's face appears and says "hey quit staring"...

What I meant by posting that Ken, was to present a christian viewpoint since you made it point to say you are one, that was my thinking when I said "your side" when I paired it with the "other side", I meant no slight by it.

Science and religion are totally incomparable from my viewpoint. Science is based on encouraging and rewarding their peers to disprove all status quo theories and explanations no matter how long or how old it has been dogma.

Religion is the complete opposite. They say they know all there is to know via one book to explain everything. Throughout history the penalty for challenge for that has been torture, brutal death, land confiscation and other lessor attacks until very recently.

As far as "Religion is best used to describe/explain the truths of human interaction, emotion, and spiritual life." I find that is far from true. Look at how much death and destruction religion has bestowed upon mankind when they imposed dogma on how to get along. They believe in frighting little children into obeying a fictitious celestial dictator in the sky by fear of eternal fire and torture. Women are to be subservient to man. They welcome death in a cult like way since the real reward is in "heaven" and can't wait for the world to end so they can experience it.

Regarding this; "As for science "overcoming superstition" that will NEVER happen.", science has been doing that for quite some time as in; the earth revolves around the sun instead of the other way around, discovery of the germ theory instead of attributing it to "god's vengeance" nonsense, discovery that volcano eruptions, tsunamis, earthquakes and other natural disasters are from reactions of a cooling plant instead an an angry god.

As time goes by and man is attempting to rise to his full height, these superstitions and  tendencies to think that way are evolving away thankfully.

It is doing no service to physics to use the misnomer "god particle." Even Higgs regrets having used the phrase. Understanding it, may help to understand the behavior of matter, but will have little or no impact on the sort of truth that religion and philosophy are suited to explore.

Religion is forced to conform to science as we have seen before and will see again. God inspired Job with a flat earth description with corners. But really, god not inspiring anything, The author of the book of Job was writing based upon the belief in a flat earth at the time. It also didn't go too well for a gentlemen much latter for pointing out that the earth is round and not the center of the universe, the "church" didn't like that.

Actually the book of Job is a poetry book.

To look at it or accuse it of being anything other than an ancient book of Jewish poetry says more about you than the actual work itself.

As far as Galelio is concerned, pretty much all science, scientists and study took place and was funded by the Roman Catholic Church in that era. To say the Roman Catholic Church was anti science is just an uninformed opinion.

Ultimately Galelio was guilty of being bad at politics. The Pope he offended was actually a good friend of his who took offense at the tone of his work every bit as much as he was uncomfortable with the conclusions.

Your opinions are just an example of the failings of our modern education system. Propoganda and agenda driven presupositions in presenting the material are the norm.

Many scientific discoveries have opposed religious dogma. I didn't say that the Catholic Church was anti science, I said they don't like it when science conflicts with dogma and science is right. Also, many "believing Protestants" would take issue with your position on Job. But thanks for your input.

Ron,

I will politely disagree with you on this matter;

http://www.freethought.mbdojo.com/galileo.html

http://thequestfortruth.hubpages.com/hub....-Church

"In 1992, Pope John Paul II (reluctantly) formally apologized for the persecution of Galileo. They finally admitted that they, the Catholic Church and all the Popes since the beginning of the Church, were wrong, and that Galileo was right. For fifteen hundred years they had argued that every word in the bible was true-- that it was the perfect word of God, true in it's history and in all of its sciences. They were wrong. They threatened, tortured and killed people who disagreed with this error in the most brutal ways imaginable."
