Christians want to regain some say in the ethical use of science in society? Stop denying that the science is there. Simple. If Christians feel that the principles of evolution, which are REAL, are being used in unethical ways, it doesn't help their case to deny that we evolved and are still evolving, that the earth is ancient and that Genesis is NOT an accurate rendition of natural history. Own the science, and then demand that it be used responsibly. Stick your fingers in your ears, close your eyes and pretend it doesn't exist? Then lose all say in how it is used.
Science is a tool. Hitler used it for religious purposes. He believed that Aryans were a master race ordained by God to rule over all others, and he used the tools of science to achieve this.
it isn't a religion, con
So what is your point?
You remember that Hitler was a believer and thought he was ordained by God to do what he did. That does not mean that Christianity is to blame.
Again: misuses of the science does not refute the science.
That Hitler misused the science doesn't change the fact that the science is valid, connie.
Yeah, I thought so. You also had absolutely nothing to challenge a single post I made, but just simply said I was "accepting the words of scientists on faith". Since you have no evidence of this, because you don't know what I know, and I have no evidence that you understood what I posted (you may correct me there) that is not an accurate statement.
Except for the practicing scientist, in their respective fields, the acceptance of their findings and pronouncements is almost entirely based on faith and belief in their truthfulness and testable inerrancy. I would be very willing to bet that most everyone posting here are operating on nothing but faith concerning anything of advanced scientific principles and findings.
If you knew anything about science you would know that one does not have to accept the statements of anyone on faith. One can look at the actual evidence. But you never asked. Clearly you think science is based on opinion and nothing more. Have you done research? Field work? I'd say no, given this statement, along with your assertion that the posts I made were junior high level. I'd accept your identification of the science you have actually done in rebuttal.
Posting 6th Grade science book quality rifts does not really give a person any substantial credibility on scientific issues.
And yet it was over your head. Telling, don't you think?
