Is science seeking the truth?
In all areas?
What compels science, or rather, more accurately perhaps, a scientist to engage the scientific method for proof of any theory?
What about the scientific method would you change?
<quoted text>
You seem to think that I oppose science. You are incorrect.
Again, What compels science, or rather, more accurately perhaps, a scientist to engage the scientific method for proof of any theory?
You have stated that there is no compelling reason for science to engage in "finding God" (paraphrased). Correct?
What is the "compelling reason" for science to engage in "finding" out anything?
Another pointless question, with many "right" answers. What do you think compels scientists to find anything?

I said that science does not concern itself with finding god, or anything mystical.

All science begins with the assumption that there is a natural cause for everything.

Science does not assume a mystical or supernatural cause.

Otherwise for example, if a scientist were trying to discover the cause of lightning, how many natural causes do you believe the scientist would have to eliminate before he explained that "it must be an act of God."

I'm not saying that Medieval science wasn't great. I just don't believe you have a good understanding of modern science, what it is and what it is not.

I like having a rational God, for whom I do not need to ignore the lessons of physical reality.

I am grateful for all the discoveries. I believe knowing more about the universe allows me to understand God better.

Try it.

Belief in Jesus is belief in either modern Gnosticism, Protestantism or Catholicism, and they are all religions.

Had I actually done which you accuse,(equating) I would not have placed the two separate thoughts in separate sentences and separate paragraphs.
There also was a disclaimer which said that I was not speaking of "dominion" as a Biblical or other "religious" source for the concept of "dominion". Note the quotation marks are also in my prior post.
My remarks were specifically pointing out that man does dominate the other species at will, and it is because we are "special" (to use June's word). The point of June's was that man is an animal but not "special" in comparison.
Reread it without your preconceived "Christian" stereotype.
I agree that words often lose much in translation.
In what way is man "special?"

Again, you keep beating around the bush.

Are you trying to say that man was put here by UFOs and is not a part of nature?

No big deal, as long as you realize it's all wishful speculation. I agree that I have no proof of UFOs.

But there have been many UFO sightings from reliable sources like pilots, so I believe I have as much evidence for my speculation as you do for yours.

Pope washes feet of young Muslim woman prisoner in unprecedented twist on Maundy Thursday

While popes have for centuries washed the feet of the faithful on the day before Good Friday, never before had a pontiff washed the feet of a woman. That one of the female inmates at the prison in Rome was also a Serbian Muslim was also a break with tradition.

“There is no better way to show his service for the smallest, for the least fortunate,” said Gaetano Greco, a local chaplain.

You can believe science or not. What other evidence do you have?

Faith?

Faith is call faith for a reason.

You are looking for plausibility. Anything. I get it.

I have plausibility for my UFO beliefs.

(Imitation of Christ - Thomas a Kempis)
Yes!

"imitate His life and habits"

What a great concept.

Make one's faith real by living it in the real world.

That seems so obvious. How come so few actually study the words of Jesus with that goal?

Maybe it's true that wise creatures from outer space decided to dump their garbage of human-beings on earth and flee back home in the assurance that the humans had no way of following them.

Yeah RIGHT!

According to the Catholics, first Jesus abandons the Jews and wants them slayed, andthen he has his name added to a book where he and his authors believe in hell and eternal torment FOR the same Jews he at one time taught when he was a Rabbi!

Follow Jesus as a master of truth??? I think NOT!!!

If a whale can evolve into an elephant, can an elephant evolve into a whale?
Have you ever actually studied the theory of evolution - objectively?

DNA sequence, fossil records, study of biology, etc. tell us that sea creatures evolved into land animals (like elephants), some of which re-entered the sea and became sea mammals like whales. So in theory, I suppose that could happen.

Unless maybe the devil planted all the false evidence to fool mankind.

I also believe that bats are not birds, and rabbits do not chew their cud. Does that bother you too?

Today, man can trace the sequential changes in DNA from era to era, from species to species. It is truly amazing. The complexity seems overwhelming, but is well understood and documented by all relevant scientific disciplines.

There is no missing link.

If your faith says otherwise, no need to misrepresent science. Just say its your faith. No need for 20 pages of mish-mash.

If the pope wanted to wash my feet, I would ask him if he believes Atheists will be in heaven with him.

THAT would put him on the spot. He would have to show his true "colors" and climb out from under his heap of manure.
