The thing about science is that a lot of you falls head over heels about and,just like it is with the fundamentalists about the Bible and and the pastors preaching behind the pulpit,there are those of you who will believe anything that science says and you will sympathize with anybody who speaks out against religion,specifically Christianity,without question or challenge.<quoted text>
Well, in this case you are loading and firing a canon against a sparrow!
I am not an enemy of Christianity, on the contrary, but I have seen a lot that cannot be accepted and defended; there are people out there who do and express ridiculous things.
If these comes under the Christian wings just because they say that they are Christians; then Christianity has a problem.
There is an attempt to sort it out by some who will say that if only we follow the Book, then it is all ok, but it is not because even those who wrote the Book had some extreme ideas, we will stumble is some sort of nonsense everywhere.
In order to get it right we need to sort out thru science, reason and knowledge what is right or wrong.
I have chosen this path, and it brings me on to new and different conclusions.
We could say that the universe that we live in represents God, but then it is a God different from the God of the Book.
Moreover, this God will not represent entirely humans and our personal lives; it would be a God of compromises.
My concern goes towards the future of humanity, how we have to adjust our collective behaviour in order to coexist, we have to define by reason what is good or bad for our existence.
The word “I” has to have the meaning of “us” and “we”, and not entirely for humans and our personal lives.
In the universe that we are living we are less than a drop in the ocean, we should respect what is larger than us in every way.
What gets me about you people is that you will swear up and down that everyone has freedom of religion and they have the freedom to express their beliefs but then you want to police and dictate how and where an individual or individuals express their religious beliefs and when you do that then,yes,that is depriving of one's rights to their freedom of religion and their freedom to express their faith.
You can come up with all the excuses you all want to and deny anything you like,however the proof is in the pudding.
You anti-religious and anti-Christian people do try and in some cases succeed in policing and dictating one's religion and you do deprive one's freedom of religion and you you all do deprive one's freedom to express their faith.
The word of God is not meant to be confined to a building,it is meant to be carried unto the entire world so that those whoever will listen will know God.
