Let me show you how I see it? Apart from seeing "coincidental" patterns in our daily life, I laugh when science tries to disprove of a "God" some will call it Lord, or Father or so forth. I call it the Creator, and by that I mean its entire awareness it was a thing before it was actually a thing, and that thing being the Universe. So MY belief is that we are simply stardust, in other terms, we don't just hold the Universe inside us, but we are the Universe itself, we have just believed we are separate from that thing because it's the cycle of life. We are simply one thought, so, therefore, we are going to feel every emotion on the spectrum. It's the human condition. I do not claim one religion, but yes as the naked eye can see you'd think that Religion and Science are not the same thing, but my faith, my belief, is strictly based on science just as much as my core feeling and beliefs inside of me.
I get Deja Vu, to me that feels to me I have lived that day before, or perhaps have dreamed of it and it has come true. Science tries to prove that people who get Deja Vu is so much more than what we thought and explained with "Doctorial" Information, science tries to say that there is a hidden connection between déjà vu and the existence of parallel universes. I wont get on topic about my spiritual belief on Parallel Universes/ Dimensions. What about when my belief says dreams are not just dreams but rather something more significant and powerful, yet science goes back and says that just might be true ?
How about when I say in my belief that God/Creator is the Universe? And science says perhaps the Universe is working like a Giant Brain, creating more and more of itself ? Perhaps like a Giant Simulation, Ever heard of the Brain in the Jar theory? Well, let me talk about my belief on that before I realized it was already a scientific theory?
I get sleep paralysis on the nightly, but a feeling I often get would be described as an unbalanced washing machine? That's how my brain feels, it's like I can't move or talk but Im vibrating. So I get this, thought nothing of it until I had an awakening, and that vibrational feeling came back again. Almost like my mind was separate from my body and someone picked it up and shook it. This thought alone made me add/revised my simple belief. What if "something" did pick my brain/mind (consciousness) up and shook it, and said "Hey, wake up?" And I did just that. Broke down the walls of what I was taught to believe and saw what I was meant to believe. Things are the same, they connect to literally everything, but everything is simply perspective.
I dare you to watch those two videos. ;)
Science can be tested, can br proven, and has saved many lives. Science has made our lives so much better, and religion has done the same thing (As well as fighting, but we need to take the goog and the bad). Religion is proveable, faith in the New Testament usually means loyalty and trust in God, and religion has impacted humanity a lot. Science is knowledge that comes from observation, religion is a twisted version of that.
JaneDoe625 is only thinking about the bad things that have happened with religion, and doesn't understand that Science can be wrong (and thus not certain fact).
As a Non-Denominational, New-Earth Creationist, I say no! They are nothing close! Science has supposedly 'proven' the Earth is billions of years old not 6,000 (true age.) Look around you. Could a 'big explosion' create all this beauty, love, and hope. Not possible. The Bible has more facts than your science textbook!
Science has evidence, religion doesn't.
Science ensues the scientific process to achieve accurate, testable, repeatable answers. Religion relies on personal experience, which can easily be debunked to be delusions, false memories, etc.
Please do some research and discover why science have a boat load of more credibility than any religion in existence.
There is no reason anyone should even think this is true. Every Scientific fact can be proven and verified, and if it can't be, the most it can be is a theory, not fact. While there are certain parts of religious text that are proven, there is no evidence that a higher power exist.
Religion and science are both platforms on which to find security and answers to lifes biggest questions. Though that is about the exent of there similairity. Science is constantly open to debate and willing to change given a compelling enough reason. Religion on the other hand is very set in stone, there is little discussion on the interpretations of scripture etc. though there is debate on specific meanings of things i would not say it is nearly as open as science is. Religion often promotes dogmatic principles as to how to live your life and enforces moral ideas. Science on ther other hand does not delve into that subject matter at all, Its primary focus is understanding how things work through logic and reason filtered through the human minds cabality to even do so. All in all not too similair.
Science can be tested, proven it can, and has saved many lives. Science has made our lives so much better, and all religion has us doing is fighting. Religion is something that cannot be proven, is all based on faith, and hasn't done much for humanity. Science is fact, religion is not.
Science and Religion are totally different. Science pretty much depends on physics, chemistry, and biology of the world and outside of it. Religion is what people choose to believe. They are totally different. They are totally different. Science is magnetism, gravity, outer space, lungs, cancer, helium, H2O, etc. Religion is beliefs, opinions, etc.
Otherwise religious scientists would be a contraction. They only appear to be in conflict if you assume all theists believe in inerrancy and are young earth creationists.
Why people get the two confused is more due to some atheists attempting to hijack science and push their if you don't believe I'm right then you don't believe in science bollocks.
Science uses knowledge. Religion uses faith.
Knowledge is verified. Faith is unverified and personal and subjective.
Knowledge requires proof. Faith accepts without proof.
These fundamental differences are like day and night, mutually exclusive, always a dichotomy, and irreconcilable. They are not the same thing so Science is not a religion.
They are completely different. Science facts dont contradict other science facts. Scientists have theories and facts. Religion on the other hand has theories based on lies mostly as most religions cant be true. Science is a collection of facts and theories and those theories are based on facts and premises and are the most probable answers to our questions. Religion on the other hand offers contradictory answers to our questions and most have to be false because they are almost completely opposing views. Everybody has different combinations of beliefs most of which have to be false. And they are ridiculous claims. Everything happens for a reason. We know right from wrong. Almost nobody knows all of right from wrong and i know this because of the contradictions. Dont know why you idiots cant get that. And if we know right from wrong then nobody before our age knew right from wrong. So most didnt know right from wrong and we dont know cant tell all right from all wrong. And everything happens for a reason? Not if we have free will. And they believe both. If we have free will things happen for our reasons
if everything happens according to gods plan then he is in control otherwise being imperfect we would surely stray away from his plan. And there is evil and everything happens for a reason? If evil happens for a good reason then it isnt evil. If it has a "good" result then it isnt "evil" nor should we be punished for it because if thats the case god is in control as i explained. Otherwise things would happen for our reasons and no reasons. And there is no good reason for many things and any mind unwarped by dogma can see that.
