Then why doesn't science have all the answers? Science can at most only explain things that can be perceived in some form, usually by the use of scientific instruments, and even then science is far from providing all of the answers (all though many people will not want to acknowledge this). For instance science cannot explain: where life came from (eg the very start), the creation of the universe, human conciseness, the underlying rules by which the universe operates (eg linking gravity with the quantum mechanics).... and there are many more.<quoted text>
I said you are free to believe, and yet you belittle what you don’t understand of science.
Now according to the golden rule you treat others as you want to be treated, so you are basically giving me the thumbs up on ridiculing your religion. Fine by me, please don’t complain about my doing that any more.
I do teach my children the truth, they know science, they have a solid grasp of physics and astronomy. they do and already have decided on their own, as my youngest is now in their 30's
They know the difference between actual knowledge, actual evidence, and mere belief.
Science doesn't have all of the answers, Science is not God, and can never be. The role of science in society is to answer the question - How? The one question it cannot really answer is - Why?
Its for this reason that Science and Religion can actually coexist, the one does not disprove the other, and conflicts have only ever occurred when one try to step on the others 'turf'. Science answers the 'how does the universe work', religion answers the 'why is there a universe' questions.
