Athiest wet dream spewed forth on wiki.

I wasn't surprised by the top warning, "this page has issues".

Science doesn't give hugs ... apparently those are needed. Just sayin'.

Babies die without hugs. That makes Jesus cry.

See above, just a joke ... one that nevertheless makes the point that science is a wonderful tool, but like any tool, it doesn't work for everything.

Science cannot help with matters emotional, and we are emotional creatures. It will not heal a broken heart. It cannot define your purpose. It can not offer you forgiveness.

As Einstein said, "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."

In short, science without ethics and morality is bad, and religion based solely on blind faith is stupid.

Science must be removed from consideration ethical or moral to reach unbiased conclusions. That is what it is good at. However, the conclusions it reaches must still be filtered through some kind of ethical filter (religion/religions/philosophy provide that).

There so many problems with that page. It was obviously written by a naive first year atheist.

Why doesn't it just redirect to "empirical evidence"
