Don't dictate beliefs

No one else can say otherwise? That is basically saying those who do "believe in God" are better? Hardly.

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.

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

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.

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.:))

Religion is chauvinistic, science is not.

As for "morality," religion makes up their morals just like everyone else. The only difference is that you justify horrible actions with your religion, which you cannot legitimately do with science.

There's the crux of it. With scientific data, theories, assertions, basically everything, everyone understands it if they have enough study in the particular field, and everyone understands it the same. Your religious nonsense is always "interpreted" differently, always.

That is because it is not acceptable as it is written, even for them.

I just wonder how many other believers think we are made of god-stuff as well. They all need an enema!

You have no knowledge or experience of science. Because you are brainwashed by your cult, you have an opinion that has been drilled into you by your cult of liars.

Science never set out to answer morality questions. It set out to keep you alive through medicine, to feed you efficiently and cheaply through technology, and it lets you communicate your half arsed opinions about science to all of us here and now today.

You're allowed to think about morality because you're not thinking of what animal to kill next in the forest to feed your cave family with a life space of 30 years. And that is thanks to science, not religion.

Yadda. Yadda. Yadda. It doesn't take knowledge or intelligence to accept science's propaganda. It takes gullibility. LOL!
