lol because people need to feel part of a set group, and one of the things a group will do (to feel worthwhile) is compare themselves to another group, usually as the better party. The other group will retaliate, and the conflict is fed by much anger on either side until no one remembers what the poitn was anymore...but they do know they're better than THOSE OTHER PEOPLE.
i think spiritual people get it and scientific people get it but they dont want to admit that they need to mix the two because then they would really get it ... scientists sometimes always try to find a equation to explain something but what they are missing and what they are puzzled about .. religion and spirituallity would answer the question ... certain religions like buddhism though definitely have more things figured out then science because sometimes science can focus on the things that are so important but for example the buddhist knew about different nerves and things in the body or the chinese with acupuncture and now science is finding out that what they are finding out is already been said in buddhism haha
It comes off like it is the 1950s with the atheists and skeptics as the police, telling the rape victim (knowing types like myself and believers that sense it) that it never happened or that it did not go down the way it actually did.
"You just fell and ripped your skirt, go walk it off!"
Actually, it's not about Christianity vs science since they don't obsolete in any point, it's just people who want to look smart say religion is bullshit because they think it automatically makes them 'scientific' and 'intelligent'.
I think the whole religion vs science debate didn't really took off until the Enlightenment, but some groups of people didn't move with the times and got stuck in a medieval mindset that prevents them from moving forward.
Then again, have you seen What the bleep do we know? It sort of brings God back into the picture by using quantum physics theory.
For me, it's not so much that people believe in a deity that bugs me. They can believe in whatever deity they want. To delude oneself from believing in scientific facts because of said deity or texts related to the belief of that deity is what bugs me. I'm not a fan of that.
Or; Believe in God? Fine. Believe the Bible word for word, despite strong evidence that contradicts some of its passages? No.
