If you don't believe in Quantum Theory, stop using electronics.

Neither religion or superstition explain anything at all.

Religion = superstition

You're blaming scientists for what they CAN'T explain? How about asking religious people to explain ANYTHING without them lying or making up stuff...

I really like science and am not putting it against religion. I just think scientists do make mistakes.

Your getting confused.
The scientific method seeks to to correct mistakes made by scientists.
It adds to science.

The religious method is to bury mistakes.
It detracts from humanity.

The scientific method has been able to discard your hypothesis as wrong.

There's a lot of evidence, or why would there be 2billion followers of God, or 6billion followers putting every religion together for that matter.

For the same reason that people in Africa believe in witches - tradition. They are raised that way. Religion is usually parent-given.

There's no more evidence for Abrahamic god(s) or any of these..

than for pixies or Santa. Religion is the last major bastion of superstition.

Argumentum ad populum and argumentum ad nauseum are both logical fallacies.

You can't explain *anything* with creationism.

So if science is so bad then stop using your computer, modern medicine, your car, your house, the supermarket - just go back to living in a cave and foraging for your own food.

Not as much as creationists do.

No, it doesn't. It gives us a WHO. Not a HOW. And it does so based on no evidence.

What you see are some scientific facts support your favourite book while others do not. Despite the fact this means your book is therefore NOT the 100% inerrant "Word of God" you continue to believe it anyway. This is because faith makes evidence superfluous. In the meantime your God-concept remains as unfalsifiable (and therefore unscientific) as it's always been.

Why of course! Even the people who disagree with your religion are "evidence" of your religion! And many of them probably make the same claim about you. Of course taking this into account it's more likely that you're ALL wrong. Especially in light of the fact that not even ONE of those 6 billion can provide scientific evidence of the existence of an invisible all-powerful universe-creating entity existing beyond spacetime itself as we know it.

This would mean either this/these God entity/entities are more than likely NOTHING AT ALL like you thought, or perhaps do not even exist at all.

That's implicit in our idea of science. There's always more to learn, and there will never come a point where scientists can say, "we're done, we know it all now." It is more like every answer brings more questions.

That's why science is harder than religion. You theists just shrug and say "goddidit" and treat that as the final answer on everything.

At one time, the beliefs that the earth was a flat disk, that the sun revolved around the stationary earth and that the stars were small lights fixed in a solid firmament were all nearly universal. The number of people who believe something to be true is not relevant to the inquiry into whether it is in fact true.
