For hundreds of years the battle between science and religion has waged on with no clear victor in sight. Granted, science provides a more tangible way to determine whether something does indeed exist. Physical science will always be driven by theories that are sometim es even more over the top than believing is some alleged imaginary deity capable of creating the earth in six days.
In reality, science is just better at engaging the the 5 senses in a more believable way. But let’s face it folks, at one point in time or another throughout human history mass society has looked at scientists very much the same way a lot of people now look at those who subscribe to religion. People once thought that idea of the earth being round were nuts or that leeches were a cure-all remedy for just about everything. Scientific “facts” change quite often. Considering that at one time in history all fat was, now some are good. Cholesterol in eggs were “bad”, now their good…and so on and so one and so on. Even Fluoride is no longer that great for you and is now considered by many scientist doctors and leading educational institutes have done studies that prove fluoride actually reduces ones intelligence among many of the other health issues it can cause over time. Yet scientists have stood behind these “facts”for decades. So to say that everything we find real today will not be proven wrong tomorrow regardless of how we can identify these alleged “facts” to support our position is just about as hard to swallow as the theory of God to an atheist.
In fact, the oddest part about this war of ideologies is that many theories in religion actually spurred the explosions of theories which gave us science and validates many scientific principles. Some people have even used math to help prove the possible existence of God by explaining that the odds of the correct enzymes needed to form the necessary protein building blocks that create life we see is near impossible. The statistical odds that this process would repeat itself enough to produce every living being we see on the planet alone is near impossible without any sort of intelligent guidance. In layman’s terms, you’d have a better chance of winning a half a dozen power ball or mega millions jackpots in a row than having this process happen enough to create all the life we see. And I think I am underselling that statistic…lol But again, that is just one theory that some scientist claim they can disprove..
There are a lot of theories out there. The one thing we do know about life and science is that we know less than one-half of a billionth of a percent of everything there is to know about this giant universe of ours, so for anyone to say anything without any doubt is just pure stupidity. It’s all about faith whether it be in science or religion!
Science does not really prove anything with absolute certainty, it just show the most likely result based upon the limited amount of knowledge, evidence and resources we have available at the time. Granted they can help you determine that somethings can happen pretty much 99.99% of the time, but there is always that .01% chance that it may not happen as predicted in almost every case. As all these variables change over time though, so will the theories and (un)proven hypotheses. That’s the only true constant in life regardless of what any scientific mined individual or theologian says. Way to many people think that the absence of evidence is proof enough to declare something is true or false. Reality tells us a different story as the only thing that such studies proves is that you could or couldn’t find any evidence to support a position. Like religion, science has change considerably since it gained traction and its still very young compared to how humanity has been around. At one time, its sole purpose was to find the objective truth. Now, it’s mostly used subjectively to support a position, promote a product or method that helps to push a particular agenda. It’s become more about pride and profit than finding out the truth and helping other grow. Sadly, when science first got notice people actually risked their lives to find truth. Now, they won’t even risk a job or reputation if they dare share a discovery that may go against what their donors, mainstream science or big industry wants the people to believe.
Is God Just The Ultimate Scientist?
What I find most odd is that many of the theories that some of the world’s most brilliant scientists subscribe to in fact support the possible existence of a God-like being when you step back an look at the big picture. For instance, if you were smart enough to clearly understand everything there is to know about string theory, had the ability to utilize and understand the principles of chaos theory while combining it with the power to manipulate quantum mechanics, DNA and energy you would have all you need to be able to do all those things that the Biblical version of God in fact does.
So my question is, why is the possibility of God so hard to believe for many scientific minds knowing this? Especially today when we know we can change life, genetically modify DNA and pretty much create new forms of life in a lab, why is it hard to imagine being able to do this on a larger scale? These guy are mind bogglingly stupid if you ask me. After all, imagination is what has fuel scientific exploration since it began! Limiting ones imagination is a sure fire way to limit scientific advancement… Where would we be if Wright Brothers didn’t believe flight was possible or if Henry Ford said, “eeehhhh horse and buggies are fine…”?
Even a scientist knows that it can take hundreds, if not tens of thousands of tries, to run the necessary experiments to come to a realistic conclusion. Hell, gathering the necessary resources and creating a perfect controlled environment to get the intended results they are looking for in any type of experiment or research project is a huge task. Now imagine if you had a massive self-sustaining controlled environment filled with the resource to conduct limitless experiments with all the time and resources you ever wanted and billions of test subjects to work on. With those types of resources you could just about accomplish any and every type of experiment you ever wanted to help you find out how to make a perfect human. Now imagine being able to do that on billions of planets across billions of universes and dimensions.
It’s Still All About Faith
The bottom line is that most science in today’s modern age is clearly not the final word. Environments change, variables change and new information is constantly coming in which always affects the outcome of any experiment. The second you think you figured something out, you can very well discover that a vital piece of the puzzle was overlooked or not accounted for and sometimes new piece of information comes into existence. In either case, a scientist is just as ignorant or as nuts as the person who believes in the imaginary guy in the sky who created all life regardless of how many other likeminded scientific folk support your position.
The tragic irony is that religion was once well revere and loved by many until people used it to control people and make others feel less than those who had this divine knowledge. As the personality traits of today’s new scientific fanatics are eerily similar to the religious zealot’s ones who thrived during the Spanish Inquisition, it makes you wonder if history isn’t just repeating itself? There are so few absolutes out there and science clearly does not hold the patent on them all. Granted it provides a new realm of tangible evidence that allows us to feel better about the claims it makes, they still rely on faith to support their prognosis and are fallible. The only proof you need to prove this is the fact that every drug on the FDA ban list was once approved by the FDA. Things are in a constant state of change and things that people might see as absolute now may not feel the same way if they had more knowledge than the limited knowledge we have as such a young species.
No one knows anything for certain and according to many the only one that has all of the answers is, well, God…lol. So until you can come floating down floating on a cloud from the heavens and are capable of smiting all those wicked sinners who hurt other with joy so you provide a heaven on earth for all God’s children. Please show a little civility and respect for other peoples position in life regardless of how it offends you… who knows, you may learn a little something regardless of how fantastical their story, theory or ideology may sound. We can learn amazing lessons from fairy tales, religion and science, so why be an ass and lose the lesson just because you want to make another person feel bad?
We are here to help each other grow, not use each other as stepping stools or emotional punching bags. The quicker we realize this, the better we will all evolve into a more peaceful society where both religion and science clearly have a place. If you have a well rounded perspective you can clearly see that both of these ideologies can be used to prove that each other exist and has purpose. We’ve really got to learn to stop acting like a bunch of man and stop lash out like the beasts we claim superiority over when we become so emotional. Humans are one of the few creatures on this planet that can actually step back and analyze such things and learn from them.
Over the past few decades we’ve started to lose our humanity after we gained so much progress so fast as we’ve begun to de-evolve back into a bunch of emotionally charged man-animals. We are better than that! And, its time we started growing up so that our children can learn to look past our petty differences and become better than us — the way it was intended to be. And that is why I think science proves the possible existence of God… So if you don’t like what I have to say, than bit me if you think otherwise…lol (Yes, I need to evolve a little more myself, but at least I’m trying… Well, most of the time anyways…lol)
