Yes, there is a philosophy of science:

There is no conflict between philosophy and science, because philosophy does not begin with any pre-determined dogmatic answers.
OK, the first science discipline was started through religion.

However, the scientific method we know today never begins with an hypothesis which includes possible mysticism.
When Catholicism ruled supreme ... only members of the Catholic clergy were allowed to practice science.

What a joke!

You Christians believe that you can yank a Jewish savior out of a Jewish woman put on earth by a Jewish GOD, and make that Jew do YOUR bidding.

If you believe that JEHOVAH intends to let you mock him and then reward you FOR mocking him ... I suggest you underestimate the power of THAT one and only Abrahamic GOD.

You are NOT supposed to have any gods before him OR after him.

The Jewish theologians simply forgot to add the "after him" words in their theological fuss to be perceived as the only truth-tellers on earth.

Estimates of over 10,000 (mostly) Catholics dead.
If the Catholic God is a just and loving God...
... and if prayers are answered according to the Bible...
... why would there be any need for Catholic Relief Services?
I hope for the best for these victims. I am sorry that some relied on an imaginary god for safety.
The dying may have found comfort in religion, but the living will be receiving aid in the next few days - thanks to applied science, not philosophy or religion.

If I'm the Devil, the first thing I do is create sola scripture. Once you are scrambling through the pages looking for your desired faith, I get y'all to unravel the sacraments, starting with Baptism. Then I set my sights on the Eucharist. Now I got you all in the abyss of defining your own truths; your own Christianity. its an easy strategy..
Look at the newest Christian sects popping up in this century alone. Heck, they look nothin like the born again movements of the 20th century! Marriage is destroyed and everyone is running around announcing how saved they are. Mission accomplished.

The Catholic "scientists" had complete faith that cruelty was the main aim of the supposed god that they worshipped.

OBEDIENCE.....

2 Kings 5:10-14

10 Elisha sent a messenger to say to him,“Go, wash yourself seven times in the Jordan, and your <<<FLESH>>> will be restored and you will be cleansed.”

***FLESH will be restored....

How do we RESTORE our SOUL???

11 But Naaman went away angry and said,“I thought that he would surely come out to me and stand and call on the name of the Lord his God,~~~wave his hand over the spot and cure me of my leprosy.~~~

***Can any person TODAY wave their hands over anyone and save them???

12 Are not Abana and Pharpar, the RIVERS of Damascus, better than all the WATERS of Israel? Couldn’t I wash in them and be cleansed?” So he turned and went off in a RAGE.

13 Naaman’s servants went to him and said,*****“My father, if the prophet had told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more, then, when he tells you,‘Wash and be cleansed’!”*****

***WASH AND BE CLEANSED.....

How do we CLEAN ourselves SPIRITUALLY???

14 So he went down and DIPPED himself in the JORDON seven times, as the man of God had told him, and ~~~~~his flesh was restored and became clean like that of a young boy.~~~~~

OBEDIENCE....

He dipped himself in the Jordon SEVEN times....

AS THE MAN OF GOD HAD TOLD HIM.....

His flesh was RESTORED and became CLEAN like that of a young boy.

***Now, if he can clean/restore his flesh (physical)....how can we clean/restore our souls (spiritual) as to the OBEDIENCE to the Word of God???

So Antony Leeuwenhoek accepted everything and praised everything, and in this he was a child of his time, for in his century searchers had not yet, like Pasteur who came after them, begun to challenge God, to shake their fists at the meaningless cruelties of nature toward mankind, her children.

And the shrewd young Spallanzani went to the University at Reggio, with his father’s blessing, to take up the career of scientist.

At this time it was much more respectable and safe to be a scientist than it had been when Leeuwenhoek began his first grinding lenses. The Grand Inquisition was beginning to pull in its horns. It preferred jerking out the tongues of obscure alleged criminals and burning the bodies of unknown heretics, to persecuting Servetuses and Galileos. The Invisible College no longer met in cellars or darkened rooms, and learned societies all over were now given generous support of parliaments and kings. It was not only beginning to be permitted to question superstitions, it was becoming fashionable to do it.

Are you the devil?

Speaking of destroying marriage, are you defending 60,000 annulments per year?

Maybe the devil lives in a glass house, with no mirrors.

No use of water other than DIPPING would do (OBEDIENCE to God.)

No number but SEVEN times was proper (OBEDIENCE to God.)

The simple fact remains.....he was cured by God’s grace.....

when and only when, he ACCEPTED it in OBEDIENT FAITH.....

water was the point or place where the CLEANSING was done by the WORKING of God.

Good point..

I wonder how many millions in Mexico City tell themselves that every day?

You just had to offer them bliss in an afterlife ... and the gullible ones, in all their different cults would follow any lines written by men.

That is the long and ridiculous history of religion.

"MY SAVIOR" ... as in ownership.

"OUR SAVIOR" ... also as in ownership of the savior ... but only if you belong to our group of believers.

"You can't have part ownership in our SAVIOR unless WE give you permission for him to give you HIS love!"

Chuck,
Yes by Faith/Belief and the Blood of Jesus Christ....
Hebrews 9:15
15 For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—~~~~~now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.(Old Covenant)~~~~~
Why is it necessary and a COMMAND to be baptized into the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ?????
You add baptism for folks today Hank. Given them a different qualification for salvation than those like Abraham. That's just not the case.

The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ is what baptism represents. Our old selves have died(into the water) and we have new life in Christ(out of the water). Baptism represents we as Christians have a new life with Christ.
