It isn't science's goal to refute your beliefs. The goal of science is to understand (primarily) and to explain (secondarily). That's all. Your beliefs (aside from elections and taxes) are irrelevant.
I know you Christians are hung up on this (pun intended), but you are not being persecuted.
The role of science is to understand and explain that which occurs in the Natural World. Faith is not based on that foundation
Hebrews 11: 1-31
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Therefore Faith can not be proven or tested by Scientific Methods.
What does the Bible say about faith MTT 9;29 According to your faith,it will be done to you.
Now,God will test your faith in order to strengthhen it.
I am going to repeat something I previously posted.
When I was an Agnostic,and had no faith,I was faced with a situation that was extremely painful mentally and caused me a lot of anxiety,for which I was unable to find a solution.I was pretty desperate and
in an attempt to find a solution,I decided to try and see if this God I did not believe in,could help me..
I prayed for a solution and during the time I was praying,unbeknownst to me,my prayer was answered,but not in the manner that I had requested. I found out about it 7 hours later
Now,I know the circumstances under which that prayer was answered,but,could not figure out logically,what caused those circumstances.
As a result of this experience,my belief in God ,did not abound,but I was less skeptical about his existence..
Over the years my faith was tested in many different ways.
Other Requests that I made to God,in prayer,for which I could find no solution,were answered,some,overnight,some within a few weeks,without any further effort on my part.
Each time a request was answered,my faith grew more and more.
So what you describe as strong feelings,is erroneous,I have a strong belief,based on the responses thay I have received.
If my prayers had not been answered,then my belief in God and my faith would not have grown.
If they had not been answered,would only have confirmed what I,then believed...There is no God.
Let me ask you a question,I know you are an Atheist and you would never pray to something you don't believe in
But,let us suppose,that,like myself,you found yourself in a grievious situation which you could not resolve and in desperation you decided to test God ,not that you believe in him,but,HOPINGN that there is a GOD and HOPING that he will respond, And to your joy and surprise,that prayer is answered Subsequent prayers,are also answered in like fashion....What would you conclude?
Thai is the basis for my belief in God and my faith...Not on emotions ,feelings or the opinion of others,but based on the FACT that I know my prayers were answered.
The evidence you are looking for WILLnot be found in a laboratory,as only God is capable of providing that evidence
Insofar as your having no respect for me,If that is what you feel,so be it. If,in order to gain your respect,I have to deny what God has accomplished in my life,I can not and will not do it.
Not only for you,,Not for anybody ,including my parents,my wife ,my kids and everything I hold dear.
