You wrote "The saddest thing is when they make you pick one way or the other: If you believe in evolution then you can't be religious. There are a lot of scientists who are religious -- they're able to marry both of those things."
I'm wondering why you think the truth is sad. Evolution does have religious implications. For example evolution completely eliminates the most important hiding place for the god of the gaps. Also, Jeebus was an evolution denier. This means Christians worship an uneducated moron.
Your "a lot of scientists who are religious" is interesting because they virtually don't exist. The top scientists of the world who belong to the National Academy of Sciences are 93% atheist.
Let's tell the truth about the religious implications. A quote from David Horton of Australia which I agree with: "From May 1859, the origin of the Origin of Species, it was impossible for an intelligent person to be religious."
Right. It just means they're superstitious cowards. They invoke magic for everything because they're afraid of reality. Their logic is "I don't understand. I don't want to understand. I'm too lazy to understand. Therefore the magic god fairy did it."
Maybe you can describe your fairy's magic wand.
Complexity, complexity, complexity, therefore a god fairy waved its magic wand.
Some people will never grow up.
And that's what every religious belief is, a childish fantasy.
leuken, describe your fairy's magic wand. If you can't do that, you have nothing to add here.
You have "no religion" but you deny the foundation of biology anyway.
You have "completely studied all the science" but you're still a science denier.
What you are mister is a pathological liar. No religion? You studied all the science? Do you really expect anyone to believe you? What's the point of being dishonest if everyone already knows you're a liar?
