I actually changed this Opinion, but Debate.Org retained this one which I could not Delete, there should be a way on Debate,Org to delete our own Opinions if we, as I did, hit submit or try to alter the heading by mistake.
On my other (Ning based) sites, I can delete any Blog or Opinion I post freely.
As I stated, Theories are science's basis, Theories must be highly Substantiated to exist as such.
The Doctrines of Christianity were devised in the 500 years after the Death of Jesus Christ, nothing was ever devised while Jesus was alive. There is nothing presentable as evidence that Jesus even performed a single miracle, and certainly no contemporary, impartial, eye-witness evidence for his resurrection.
The teachings cannot be confirmed as coming from Jesus, as they took nearly 45 years to be written down and nobody could remember every word spoken after 45 years.
So most of the Doctrines of Christianity are Unsubstantiated, because there is no evidence that is strong enough to Substantiate the claims of Christians.
Yet, Christians are always attacking Scientific Theories and Knowledge, with unsubstantiated claims.
They attack medical procedures, like abortion, Caesarean section, blood transfusion (JWs), Homosexuality (which is often genetic) and Evolution (Creationists).
The attacks are always unsubstantiated by Evidence.
The evidence they do try and cite is always bad science, or contrived Irrational nonsense.
Because they are always arguing from a framework of Blind Faith, not Knowledge.
Christianity often is a serious problem for the lives of young children such as poor Neil Beagley, a 16 year old teen who died from an easily curable illness, because his parents were too stupid/naive to trust medical science and madly, chose Faith Healing, that only works in cases where a placebo would suffice. The anointing of oil and prayers really achieve nothing and it is highly likely that Neil's case is only one of many hundreds, where the naive stupidity or blind faith of parents kill their children.
Though Tim Minchin does sing of a Faith Healing case that once relayed to him by Sam from Dandenong, regarding his Mum's incurable eye disorder, that God healed, and turned Tim from Atheism to actually singing, Thank You God!
I don't know who said no to this, but its clear you shouldn't attack a belief because its different its just stupid. Im 16 and i realize more than adults how wrong it is its also hypocritical. Christians attack science and dont care if your upset but if someone who belief is science attacks them they get defensiveness and just have the same answer. God did it....
Christians Should Not Attack Science If It Disagrees With Their Faith, Because Science Is A Substantiated System Of Belief, As Christianity Is An Unsubstantiated Belief System. What more can you say, that sums it up in a nutshell eh? If Christians would spend as much time tending to their beliefs and practicing the word of Jesus, then the discord in the US would die out 50 fold.
First of all, Christianity is not opposed to science. One word: Creationism.
But even if it was, science has been argued over and the science textbooks have been re-written over and over again, by human beings with flaws. The Bible was finished being written 2000 years ago, and its writers were inspired by God. Even if they did oppose, the Bible trumps today's scientific belief systems any day.
To say that it isnt is a denial of simple historical fact. The bible is the most scrutinized, most read book in the world, and does not have any continuity errors. Many archaeological finds support specific events noted in the bible. To say that science is totally substantiated would be false, as in much of the field of science is research, and hypothesis. Such is the nature of the Big Bang THEORY. Not proven factually, merely hypothesized.
Some science like evolution is NOT a substantiated system of belief proved by many refutatons. The evidences that evolutionists suggest have been proved wrong because they only show what they want to believe. Also scientists prove things by observing evidences, and often times because of new ones, old ones proved to be wrong.
There are areas of Science that remain a mystery and unsubstantiated. After all, the process is: Hypothesis, Theory, then Law. And there are mysteries in Christianity that have not be proven. Yet, as a previous post points out, the Bible has probably come under more scrutiny than any other document in history. I might also add that much of the Bible has been proven via historical records, artifacts, etc. So, instead of attacking each other, perhaps respect is the solution?
