  • Science doesn't lead to secularism

    https://getpocket.com/explore/item/w...=pocket-newtab

    Not only isn't religion not going away, it is thriving. More, any attempt by scientists to indoctrinate or supplant religious faith backfires and hurts the efforts of science education and findings.
    My New Years Resolution: 1 Peter 3:15
    Omniscient without man's qualification. John 1:3 "Nothing"
    Colossians 1:17 "Nothing" John 15:5 "Nothing"
    Mighty, ALL mighty (omnipotent). Revelation 1:8
    No possible limitation Isaiah 40:25 Joshua 24:15
    Infinite (Omnipresent) Psalm 145:3 Hebrews 4:13

    ? Yep

    Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think... Amen. -Ephesians 3:20 & 21

    ... when I became an adult, I set aside childish ways. Titus 3:10 Ephesians 4:29-32; 5:11

    Separation of church and State is not atheism "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..."

    I've never thought of there being an intellectually honest hostility between science and faith. I was curious about the mechanism of existence as an atheist and I'm if anything more interested as an adherent. To my mind science and religion are only enemies in the hands of people who aren't using at least
    one of them correctly.

      There is no hostility between science and faith. It is only when some try to redefine science as materialism.

      What is an "adherent"? What do you adhere to?

        Science and faith are not mutually exclusive. Trying to separate them is a common mistake. Early science explorers were also men and women of faith.

        Here a Wikipedia entry on this topic: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...and_technology

        You can take it for what its worth.

            from Lon's link:
            In 1966, just over 50 years ago,


            the distinguished Canadian-born anthropologist Anthony Wallace confidently predicted the global demise of religion at the hands of an advancing science: ‘belief in supernatural powers is doomed to die out, all over the world, as a result of the increasing adequacy and diffusion of scientific knowledge’. Wallace’s vision was not exceptional. On the contrary, the modern social sciences, which took shape in 19th-century western Europe, took their own recent historical experience of secularisation as a universal model. An assumption lay at the core of the social sciences, either presuming or sometimes predicting that all cultures would eventually converge on something roughly approximating secular, Western, liberal democracy. Then something closer to the opposite happened.

              In some circles, but not inherently.

              What is an "adherent"?
              A general term I use to denote people of particular faiths, including my own, which is Christianity.

              BINGO!
              There you go. ;L)

                Sorry, I missed a word in that sentence. I was saying exactly what you're saying. There is no inherent conflict between faith and science. It is only when the materialist tries to redefine science to mean materialism that there is a "problem".
