And is science proves that Christianity is right, then Christianity will have to be discarded.
Heh, science has proven liberalism wrong for decades, and those dolts won’t change.
Samsara IS nirvana!
I knew it!
It all depends. Is it science fact or consensus?
Lately science has become as faith based religion.
Take global warming for example.
the ancient version of cosmology I had been taught, which held that the moon was a heavenly body that emitted its own light.
I do find teh description of the Behemeth and Leviathan fascinating as well. They sound an awfully lot like dinosaurs.
You know what hardly ever gets mentioned in the whole Galileo flap?
Geocentrism was a idea introduced promulgated and defended by scientists, not churchmen. Just look at the names: Aristotle, Ptolemy. By the time of Copernicus it was just considered settled science—and it performed excellently at describing observed planetary motion. It was so settled, in fact, that a whole theology grew up around it.
The lesson I take away from Galileo is exactly the opposite of what most people take away from it—the Church should be very careful about getting too cozy with any scientific theory, lest when it fall, she fall with it.
Any religion that science alone can prove or disprove isn’t a religion.
I have faith in the scientific method to indicate to me something of how the world works. And I have faith in Torah to teach me something of how God works in the world.
Makes sense. Buddhism is just a philosophy, it’s not based on revelation, it’s not based on evidence. It’s based on idle speculation and contemplation. So when theories and speculation are contradicted by facts it’s easy to abandon the speculation in favor of facts.
