Science has its own "end time" prediction. It's called the "big crunch" or the ultimate fate of the universe.

There you go! In the world of science, what is considered fact today becomes fiction tomorrow, which accounts for all the confusion and vacillation among atheists.

No, you fail to comprehend that the reason science produced such positive results in less than 200 years, while religion has produced horrible results in the 6 million years it's exited, is because science continues to improve itself and discard failed concepts and ideas while religious nuts keep to even their most failed concepts in spite of themselves.

While I suppose it's feasible that there is some aspect of the universe we're not aware of that could eventually return us to the big crunch, current evidence points to the big freeze scenario.

Except in science is based on data, whereas in religion is based on some lunatic's wild hallucinations.

If you were intelligent enough to know something about the world of science, you would realise that you can't criticise it without first proving your non-existent god.

When you realise the fact that you're lying about god, you might have a little more respect for science. But I doubt it because you;ve shown to us all you have no morals or sense of honesty.

The only difference between science's data and religion's data is that it lacks morality. The male dominated scientific community uses its power the same way the old Testament god used his power, to win friends and influence enemies. Like Jehovah, the scientist feels he has the prerogative to use power in any way he chooses. He believes his search for answers justifies any means, or sacrifices, not only on his part but the parts of others. Scientists become fanatics when they ignore the rights of others, and when they defile life in a misguided attempt to understand it.

Hey how much god-stuff do we urinate and defecate out? How do we test ourselves for god-stuff?

Data is amoral, full stop. Now conclusions... that's another thing.

I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. You are not capable of thinking beyond your own personal prejudices. You're better off beating the same old dead horse. It will give you something to do.

Which really means that he has no answer and is just making stuff up.

But to answer your question about how much stuff is in him -- he's full of it!

This is certainly not limited to scientists. The history of religion is full of examples where the rights of a minority are ignored. In fact, religious leaders typically jump at the chance to literally kill those who disagree with them. We see such in Iran today. It isn't that long ago that terrorism was a Christian thing in Ireland. And in the US today there are many that say we should ignore the rights of women and gays simply because their religion says so.

Scientists, in general, do NOT set aside the ethical questions as you suggest. Some reach different conclusions, while others allow the science and ethics to be distorted by money. But the vast majority are concerned about the ethical implications of their research.

He certainly is. But hey we have a Christhole arguing against science and saying we are made of god-stuff. The term god-stuff is an instant classic on all time theist stupidity posted on here.

Next time you are at the doctor ask him to check your god-stuff levels.:))
