Why do some of you choose Religion over Science?

I'm just saying "Why would you choose religion for Science".

Some people choose religion over science because they realize that without religion live is meaningless.
Think about it, if there really is no God, it means everything, everything, and Everything makes absolutely no sense.
We would just be biological robots and nothing else would matter.

Why do you choose Religion over Science? Do you actually believe the earth is flat, created in seven days and is 6000 years old?
as Neon mentioned earlier no where in the Bible does it explicitly state that the Earth is 6000 years old
Domanic said:
If Christianity is the truth, what about the 6000+ Religions and according to some scientists 500 Million+ different types of intelligent life in the universe.. Are they followers of Christianity in a planet somewhere in the Andromeda galaxy?
elaborate on your issue with this.
Domanic said:
What about the evidence for Evolution?, You can look into the bones of early ancestors and compare the two to modern humans including the other apes that led to modern-day humans.
What part of the Bible is against evolution exactly?
Domanic said:
Astronomers a few months ago saw a creation of a planet miles away and saw a cell evolve in a few hours with different characteristics, they have been so many tests.
source please

Also, how could Noah fit all those animals in a big "floating barn"?
This is the adaptation of the story, The Epic of Gilgamesh
Domanic said:
Think about it, you can say Christianity is apart of our "culture" but it doesn't change the fact.
In my opinion I don't want to believe, I want to know.
Are you genuinely open to accepting the knowledge of God so as long as it meets your criteria of credibility?

It gives clues in the bible that according to the book that the earth is 6000+ years old, because it doesn't even mention the Ice age in the bible it goes straight to talking about the Ancient Egyptians, Babylonians and Assyrians straight after Noah and Adam & Eve.
Actually, the Bible gives clues to the contrary, a simple understanding of Biblical Hebrew could facilitate the deciphering of Genesis Ch.1 & 2. Also, the Bible (in this case Genesis, Exodus, etc.) does not even mention the Ice Age because it is quite irrelevant. God's intention was never to give Moses a geological report on Mt. Sinai.
Domanic said:
The bible is against Evolution that should be a given... "God creates the world in 7 days", i'm pretty sure you heard that story when you were younger.
You should do some more research on Genesis, (in particular Biblical Hebrew), to find out what exactly was meant by the word "yom".
Domanic said:
Noah's Ark was probably not big enough and doesn't mention all the animals, and they are thousands of different species... where is the woolly mammoth or the Dinosaurs on the boat?
Dinosaurs died out long before Noah came around. And the flood was not on a global scale but rather a localized region. Understanding the Hebrew language would significantly help in the understanding of these accounts.

Thank you, I will definitely take a look at this interesting article.
Domanic said:
I think the belief in a god is ridiculous as people believing in Santa or faries (Including angles).
Not believing in God could be as ridiculous as believing in Santa. And there is no need for belief in angles because there is no faith required to believe in them. We see them everywhere, and I am quite offended that you don't like angles, trigonometry is my past time hobby.

What I'm saying about the "they are 6000 religions and million+ different types of  intelligent life in the universe" is that.. Why would god only let 2 Billion OUT of 7 BILLION people and 500+ Million others out their in the universe go to heaven.

All religions are geographical, Science is universal.. Science beats superstitions that haven't been proven for over thousands of years by Billions of religious followers.
he simply doesn't care. The scary thing is is that God can be as (and more) corrupt than your imagination can conceive, he is God afterall

I made the first reply in this thread and tried to give a serious and sensible response. There is a lot of philosophical discussion on what science and religion are intended to provide answers for. It's sad to see this devolved into a flame war anyway.

Perhaps the problem is not religion or science, but more the fact that some people can't keep a calm demeanor while talking about these subjects?

:ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: I love you Kelba, you made me laugh so much. I can't believe how funny this is.
Who is getting mad? Everyone has a calm demeanor

To be fair, there are Christians who believe in the old earth and the scientific consequences (evolution). The only difference is that they believe god made it. This isn't bad.

sounds like a good compromise. If Islam didn't exist and our scientific progress wasn't halted, I think we would've culturally progressed to the same idea.

Wait, what does Islam have to do with how Assyrian Christians think or believe? They wouldn't hinder us...
