Galileo was a scientist and a firm believer of God, yes or no?
Francis Collins and Ken Miller are firm believers of God.

They both accept evolution.

The facts is that, no statement, whether good or bad can change the reality of God.
... and the reality is that no-one can demonstrate it even exists. Tough nuggies, bub.

<quoted text>Don't be scared. They made humans and all life on earth. Humans think they(aliens) are God(s), angels and Demons.........The primitive human animal just out of the dark ages has a mind steeped in folk lure and tale tales. The aliens know the human animal well. The humans comprehension levels are low, unable to grasp the alien beings. In order to cope with reality humans went to what they know, story telling, a coping mechanism. That's where the "Fear of God" came from. Fear of the unknown, not wanting to know, knowing their world was shattered beyond comprehension.
I'm not scared.

Kansans should be scared.

<quoted text> Christianity is not about healing people with prayer, it is about following jesus. Totally different thing.
Well around here following Jesus means lying their azz off for Jesus. Hopefully you are not like the majority of your fellow brethren on here.

If truly you are right, there would be no bible at all to read.
The Bible is a bunch of baseless claims written by ancient superstitous goat-herders who thought the Earth was flat.

Some stuff it gets right, some stuff it gets wrong. The rest can't be verified at this time.

Especially all the magic bits.

In which case you can credit God for not giving you one of them fancy brain thingies. You'd only get a headache anyway.(shrug)

Faith is the complete opposite of evidence. They are diametrically opposed.

<quoted text> Under science we have two beliefs of thought:
1. Atheism and
2. Christianity.
Yes or no?
If yes, then your statements are just mere assertions.
No. Science does not and cannot falsify a God because the concept is not scientific.

Theism and Christianity are irrelevant to science, period.

Atheism is irrelevant to science, period.

Science doesn't CARE what anyone's religious or philosophical opinions are. All it cares about is what you can demonstrate in an objective manner via the scientific method.

Since you can't demonstrate your beliefs objectively they are relevant only to you and anyone who happens to agree with you.

And somehow I'm guessing that even half the fundies here would not back you up on your claim that arbitrary imaginary international datelines are evidence of invisible spirit demons.

<quoted text> Foul!
A man prospecting for oil is an act of what?
I hope you know the answer, it is science, yes but faith is needed, because there may or may not be oil under the ground.
Not faith, because science is perfectly open to the possibility of there being no oil underground. It comes up with a scientific theory based on evidence.

Currently ALL geology is based on old world assumptions, because it has been found that young Earth assumptions do not work, period.

That's why there are no Young Earth Creationist geologists looking for oil deposits. And the geologists the creationists sent out in the eighties to go look for evidence of a global flood and young Earth all came back and told their bosses exactly what they didn't wanna hear.

After that the creo's stopped sending scientists out into the field and just concentrated on apologetics. Apologetics of course being a pseudonym for lying for Jesus.

So no, when geologists looking for oil deposits find those deposits more often with old Earth geology than they do with young Earth geology, it's NOT a matter of faith.

There are Christian scientists who disagree with you on science. They have no problem accepting biology, chemistry and physics - you know, all those things you have a problem with.

Oh, and another thing - scientists who are atheists aren't trying to disprove a God. Since they can't falsify non-scientific concepts either.

<quoted text>Exactly woody, humans have not started....kind of ironic. What will humans discover? Gods heavenly gates and every single human that has ever passed to the after life? So, woody how long did it take humans to evolve language, than writing, than the Bible? And, discover that bones are indeed the gateway to human existence.....silly stuff woody. Once humans explore deep space, clues will discount all theories and man made concepts
OK there major Tom....
