The quote you keep mentioning, about science without religion being lame, is probably his quote. From a letter to a friend, I think. But it is one quote among many that do not paint that picture. I think it is a terrible quote, personally. And I'm a huge fan of the man.
Science and religion are at odds. One searches for answers by fostering a spirit of curiosity and the other doles out the answers while discouraging curiosity.

AND also why...many scientific minds have also ultimately RETURNED to "faith" over the long haul.

I neither take, use nor abuse God's name ("in vain" or otherwise) on your street nor anyone else's. If I chose to do so, I may do so - thus, my right would be demonstrated as EQUAL to yours.
What parts of the first and fourteenth amendments give YOU special dispensation, privilege or authority over any other taxpayer, whether they are rich, poor, black, white, male, female, gay, straight, Democrat, Republican, Christian, Pagan, Heathen or Other?
---------NOTHING--------
It WOULD be rather an antithesis for an "atheist" to do so, wouldn't it.

Why would anyone need permission to speak, unless in a public forum or similar situation, generally requiring such for the rationality of decent civility and non-chaotic, decent communication?

I strongly disagree, in that I think MANY great scientists have often been people of "faith" in something greater than just themselves, because when rationalized honestly, it is only logical.
Why would they even have ever bothered with science, if they were not?
You really could have stopped after this and not posted a full page. If you are going to speak of logic and reason, you need to actually know what they are. Nobody that understands logic would state that faith is logical. It is not. They are mutually exclusive. The application of faith requires committing multiple logical fallacies (false cause, personal incredulity, begging the question, black or white, etc.).

To answer your question:
To improve mankind's understanding of the universe and therefore improve lives.

Please do consider changing the name you post under until you actually learn what truth is.

I could compare that sort of inconsistency with the people that say "Now, I ain't racist, but all them blacks don't do nothin but get a check first of the month and blow it on gold teeth and baggy pants". The "have it both ways" message, not the racism.

I see the predjudice correlation"

Then you get it, I guess? Except for the part where I didn't ask a question about that. I asked a question and simply used that to point out how your group was a victim of the same thing. The question was, basically, how a group that was so persecuted could persecute so easily, and for so long.

do whut wrote, "<quoted text>

I dunno... maybe the person I quoted?
I didn't see the quote at the top.

No, I'm not trying to justify anything. I'm giving you my best guess based on the time period and location. It isn't my job to justify anyone's actions but mine, and my kids.

Actually looking back, you didn't quote anyone at all. But your tone was duly noted.

How about you study your own faults...and the MANY LOGS of ignorance that lay with in yourself.

I'll post to whatever length I chose to.

And I find YOUR MERE opinion-to be NOTHING-but yet more abhorrence.

Don't like MY opinion and perspective on things- DON'T READ it.

Some things are -just THAT simple.

Do you follow people around and judge their posts out the same spite and JUDGEMENTALness as what you are projecting in your post?

Are you "Yiago" posting under another name?

If not, I asked NO question of you, in which case, you should ot be asnwering for someone else.

If you are Yiago, and are answering the question on a favorite quote- why don't YOU start with learning some truth, and apply some logic, and post under the same name, if you're going to answer a question?

And just so you HAVE to look at your OWN flawed irrationality and ILLogic-

LOGIC: A person would have logical FAITH in something that is proven to be WORTHY of it...such as surgical abilities.

ILLOGICAL: To blindly follow some lame lemming herd pack of HATRED, that knows NOTHING of what they speak of...with NO ability other than to insylt others WITH ability.

is a bogus statement. You cannot help but "compare to each other" and you cannot help but to judge.
Beyond that, to be consistent with the tenets of most theology it is beyond man's place to assign the parameters and responsibilities of "God" or any other deity - even if you read it in a Book.

Faith does not required evidence or proof. You have no evidence, just your own personal cult beliefs. Have you read "Kingdom of the Cults", add yourself to the list.
Con artists and those who hold themselves to be anything that they are NOT, are not worthy of "faith", while the well intentioned and proven worthy are.

Well then maybe I'm an oddball. I don't take the effort to judge because I don't care enough about that. It doesn't matter. I have my own issues and faults to deal with without trying to rank myself against anyone.

The christian cult violates peoples right to freedom of their religion by denying them freedom from the christian cult
You do not see the Amish bashing any one and trying to shove their beliefs down others throats now do you?
What about the Hindu religion? Heard about them bashing people and shoving Hinduism down some ones throat?
