not everything can be explaind by science and this is where the higher power comes to play....
What can;t be explained by science?
Science is constantly evolving, that is it's nature. Therefore if it cannot explain something yet; it will be able to soon. All within the same rational framework.
My prediction is coming true *beats thread into submission*. Die damn you, die!
Some people here are really mis-representing atheists here. can i just say, some of us are more tolerant.
OK no religion = what now... you tell me?... what would society do?
Last night on this 7/7 programme on BBC 2 I remember a mother of one of the 52 survivors specifically saying and I quote "without my religion, I don't know where I would be today after my daughters death". It was so evident from that one line she said that her religion saved her. Thing with religion is my athiest friends, you won't really give it a penny's worth of your thoughts until you really need it and you have nobody to turn to, just like this woman had nobody else to turn to, other than God. Because God is all merciful, and he always there for you whatever sins you may commit.
People always turn to religion in times of desperation, as it gives hope, I don't think this is necessarily a bad thing either, whatever gets you through, right?
