Is science it's own form of religion?

I know that the question seems a bit strange, however, religion, much like science is based upon a number of beliefs. For example, when the question of how the universe was created comes up science states that by theory the big bang created the universe. Religion in itself is a theory much like science. Furthermore, one year I had a science teacher and not once during the entire unit did he say the word theory in relation to the big bang suggesting that he believed that the big bang did in fact...

There are countless layers to this question, mostly derived from the many definitions of "worth." For me, life is like an unsolved equation, for which I can't even see the equation to solve. Every day I wake up, this huge question is all over my face, punching me the defenseless hardly. And if that was not enough, one is also forced to share his equation with other people's equations to survive(socialization). Didn't choose to be born, forced to survive with the equipment I did not ch...

The West's Claim of Universal Equal Human Rights is Unjustified

Pickleagape
Overhead

The political orthodoxy in modern Western democracies like the United States holds that the equality of rights of all human beings is an unquestionable, moral claim that cannot be challenged by the findings of descriptive science. Equality, as a normative commitment, is viewed as fundamental to the West's conception of human rights, and is deemed not open to debate. The liberal political establishment in contemporary Western society currently insists, for example, that there is no substanti...

God Exists.

Barcafan99
NKaloms

Burden of proof is on the believer. Definitions: God: "Creator and ruler of the universe, a being omnipotent, omniscient, perfect, and eternal." Exists: " To have objective reality or being." The believer will be arguing that God (any God) exists in objective reality, I will be arguing that he doesn't. Rules: 1. No forfeiting 2. No ad hominems Only accept if you accept the definitions and terms of the debate. Message me if interested....
