If you look at Science, and compare it to a religious hierarchy, it's structure is pretty much the same, right down to sects....such as Dianetics: The Church of Scientology.
You even have the scientific missionaries here, trying to win converts....LOL

xxxooxxx , have you heard the story of Xenu?
According to the founder of Scientology, Xenu was the emperor of 76 planets in 26 solar systems 75 million years ago.
His empire became overpopulated, so he pulled a sneaky trick.
He declared a census in which his citizens got injected with a knock-out drug.
He brought his comatose victims to our planet in space ships and lined them up around the mouths of volcanoes.
He had hydrogen bombs dropped in those volcanoes which created eruptions which killed those citizens.
When the souls of those citizens ascended in the air, he had their souls captured and subjected to a three-dimensional movie.
In this three-dimensional movie, they were indoctrinated with Christianity, Communism, and various other doctrines of which L. Ron Hubbard disapproved.
Those of us living on Earth today are reincarnations of those hapless citizens.
Xenu is still living today, but his henchmen staged a mutiny and chained him up.
He still chained up on another planet today.

Both groups applies the concept of faith...

Go straight to the point.
Christians who accept evolution. Bear in mind that evolution is generally accepted in the UK. There are some private religious schools (around 50 or so) that teach religious fundamentalism instead, of course they are in the minority. Ergo, since if the UK is mostly Christian as you claim, most of those Christians accept evolution.

In fact the only countries that don't tend to be third world, or in or close the Middle East where your fellow fundie Muslim pals live. Or America, who prefer outsourcing their scientists from other countries.(evil grin)

Wow. Truly an argument for ignorance if ever there was one. And they make it sound so profound...
xxxooxxx wrote:
Truly there is no paradox in realty, but only in the human mind.
There a argument that if one really did know "Truth" would they know it? One cannot rationalize Truth, because there will always be the possibility of being wrong(doubt). So the only way that Truth can be found is through faith.
"Truth" is subjective.

That's traditional gospel or church music. I couldn't be sure but sounded like a hymn, but it wasn't bad personally not my flavor of music, I like rap and Christian type of music, except anything like heavy metal or screamo, because I like to keep my standards straight.
It was the only one I could find at short notice, I've had homework to do. I intended to find something with a just a little more "umph", but still along those lines.

There is only one requirement to being a Christian...and that is one of faith.
Oh, I thought it was just agreeing with Charles as if his words were gospel.

Um, scientology has nothing to do with science. It ain't the fault of science that there are cranks out there who take sciencey-sounding words and pretend it proves their particular brand of BS. This includes creationism, new-age "quantum" woo, and scientology.
