Evolution through natural selection leaves a billion year old trail of dismembered corpses and suffering in it's wake. If this is God's work, what does that say about God?

I *DO* pit science against religion (Western in particular), and so do many others - because they are intellectually irreconcilable. Religious thought should be as subject to critical analysis as any other set of beleifs or ideas - it should not be 'out of bounds'.
That is not quite what I meant when I said don't pit religion against science. I was speaking more about those instances when religion foists an opposing theory to explain the universe to us, like the Earth being the center of the universe, or, like creationism is an explanation for human beings and all other life on Earth. In such cases it is clearly optional on the part of the religious leaders to take on science. I do not view religions as a substitute for scientific knowledge but as a source of spiritual experience and leadership. I do not see them as needing to prove one another wrong or to even be concerned with the same details of our experience on Earth. Optional confrontations usually lead to the demise of the one exercising the option anyway. So, my perspective suggests religious leaders should back off on these optional religion vs. science confrontations and get back in the business of providing some spiritual guidance and leadership.

As I have said before............you agnostics and atheists need to seek qualified therapy.

You people all have an unhealthy fear of religion.

RE: Judge's order to remove evolution stickers from textbooks gets cheers from scientists

Why is it that no matter who they are if you tell a religous person you either dont have a religon and do belive in god or that you dont belive in any of it the first F**king thing out of there mouth is "FEAR", there are tons of religons that out date Christ. Do you ever hear people bring that up? No. If one person prays 5 times a day and another 3 the one that does 5 will say the other is going to hell or that they are not as good...thats been going on for countless years. Think of it this way ,how many people are ok with just knowing or beliving that there is something or someone greater then us out there like "GOD" or like "ALIENS" or maybe god is just an ALIEN and made us to figure out there own start of life on their planet? No one thinks for them self anymore its either -AHLA-Jesus-Budda-Ginesh.... so on so forth. If im a sinner for looking up in the sky and saying i know there is someone or something there , but i dont want to make the wrong choice so ill just try to live my life the best a can and do good coz most of us know wright from wrong then yeah im a bad apple.

P.S if you cant tell i use to be catholic...but now im nothing just me. and yes i do belive in god whatever he os she or it is.
