You tried to present that in a factual manner, And failed.
That's an improvement Dave! You went three posts without your bloated narcissism getting in the way! Keep up the good work! I'm sure your theism will make you a better human being yet.
Iran is engaged in nuclear physics, and other fields of science. A rather theistic society, don't you think? Of course they may not employ that scientific method as YOU think they should.
The fact that religion is so prevalent in their society has nothing to do with their progress in nuclear physics, which necessarily requires the application of the scientific method.

Dang Dave, that was a rookie logical mistake. What did you think was going on over there? Did you think they were refining nuclear materials by repeating passages from the Quran over them and praying? LOL!
The hand may be real or not. You won't find out unless you encounter it.
I haven't encountered it then. Seems to me then by your own logic if you really believed that you would not be so smug about people who have not shared your anecdotal experiences.
Such happens all the time in the physical world. You didn't know that snake or spider was there until it bit you. Oh, you heard about them. But.
My not knowing that the spider wasn't there doesn't mean it wasn't. Critical thinking skills. They are very important.
What you were trying to say is facts aren't facts unless you say they are and they agree with your views.
"What you were trying to say is" = "I feel more confident arguing with a straw man of my own creation than having a real debate"

That's kinda sad and cowardly, don't you think, Dave?

You do try hard to look intellectual, I will give you that.

Keep trying. Once you get it down pat looking like one you may get serious and become one. That will require actually learning and understanding WTF you are talking about instead of trying to be glib.

You tried to present that in a fact-free manner, and succeeded.

PS - "instead of trying to be glib" - ROTLMAO! This from you? You reach for glib and snarky first almost all the time. Jeez. Are you really that clueless about your own behavior?

I don't believe that the religious are unintelligent I just believe God is BS. I believe once we are dead we are dead and we do not exist afterwards.
What you are about to read, if you do read, is what god is and always will be. You may lose faith and deny it but you will think about.
God is a tool, used by the powerful, believed by the weak. Those who have the power to use god have Kingly power and do not fear because they know but those who do because if they do not follow him then they will visit hell. Let us look at the Middle East, where I live but not born, Saudi is very powerful, why, because the Emir has the right to change or slightly alter the interpretation of the Quran, that is why we are not taught RE here because if they were to question Islam the Saudi's lose control and their power is lost. Here atheists are ridiculed, like myself, because their parents have taught them to do so because they are in power.
This is not the case in the West because we don't need religion anymore, law stated by governments are accepted and religion is something the mass still clings on to. We in the UK I think have got it right, we are primarily a atheist country that doesn't use communism to get the point across but we certainly need a reform of pretty much everything else, but that's for another post. Where I lived we would joke around about gay-ness but generally accepted those who were, nothing like what I have heard from SOME parts of America and I dare say in SOME parts of England, we don't ridicule those of different ethnic origin and accept those who aren't but if we are stirred then we will hate on that ethnic minority like at the moment but we will die down, I hope. Atheism alows for a freer society and a happier one since we don't follow a book we follow our heart or minds. Just to put it out there I'm 13 so there will be mistakes.
