You seem to think one of faith is just looking for God and is therefor discreditable, when they should be looking at science as a tool to further their faith.<quoted text>
No, the faithful are quite adept at that.
Better? I think that I have a better worldview and a better set of ethical values than somebody informed by Christianity. A secular worldview is more accurate, and rational ethics are more conducive to a better life for all.
You're referring to a lifetime worth of experience and the insights I've drawn from it. My Topix experience has shown me better than anything else I have ever done what the difference is between Christian style faith based thinking and reason based thinking.
That is not what I am saying. What I am saying is that faith impedes learning to the extent that it affects thought. Those that can compartmentalize faith during their educations can do as well as those not burdened with it. Those who filter their teacher's and textbook's words through the lens of faith will reject or distort that which contradicts their faith based beliefs.
Science is a great tool.
One should see it as a way of furthering communication between the two. I don't think it's as much as them not believing in science as it is them having faith in God.
I am sure they're are some notable religious astronomers and physics right? That have it down to just as much science as not, wouldn't you?
And they are, they don't let faith blind them, that's why they be notable.
