If you do not care what is purpose of our life, why we are created and what shall happen to us when we die... then why should we have any discussion?<quoted text>
What problems could you not apply science to, if you don't mind me asking?
I don't understand why anyone would try to use science to choose for a person what color they think is prettier, or what dance they find more appealing, or what poetry they find most attractive. These are things that are personal likes and dislikes. I'm not trying to be a smart ass, but do you think that science is supposed to make these ultimate decisions for society?
People have no reason to use science for things that are personal likes or dislikes. Science can tell you what a specific group of people may like at a given time, but that like would change as the different groups are asked. That's why polls are done.
I disagree. I think that the basic understanding of the world around us greatly differs between religious minded people and science minded people. That is why there is conflict. Science says, and shows the knowledge it has, and religions show what their book and/or religious leaders say.
This is your opinion. I choose to not worry about why the earth was created or why we are here. I find it better for me, and I think it would be better if others, would learn to use the knowledge that science gives us to make an awesome place for us to live, and give us the opportunity to explore as far away from our tiny little planet as we can. I don't want to waste my time trying to question why....even if I believed in a god then there would still be no reason for me to question why.
None of these questions come under the purview of science and that was what I told you.
If you want to live like an "advanced animal", eat, drink, have sex and die and damn care that you are answerable for what good or bad deeds you did.....then you are one of those "Zealots" I spoke about.
We are wasting our time to have this "purposeless" discussion.
You go your way and I go my way.
