So earlier I had put on my grumpy old man hat and ranted a little about the corruption of our educational standards by the religious right.
Here’s the problem. You hold a position that does not require scientific proof to believe in. Indeed, your literal belief requires that there will be some things cannot be explained by human understanding.
It is often pointed out by apologists that science cannot explain all that occurs within the Bible. I believe that is why we have such words as “miracle” and “tastes great, zero calories”. Why then the fear? Why the push to do away with something that is already understood cannot explain the power of God?
Science relies on the basic principle of observe, test and observe again. A real scientist acknowledges how little they know, how ephemeral knowledge is. They may be forced to rethink the most trusted of theories if new data presents itself.
So here you have the supposed collision of something that cannot be explained with the idea that our explanations may not be all there is… What’s the problem again?
Am I being simplistic? Oh Lord yes. ..but the absurdity if it all.
