It led to questioning it, for sure. I don't think it's an accident that the number of people that identify as nonreligious is growing.

what's really interesting is how much science has...pretty much changed about how people think about the Bible in some ways.


I agree with this fill-on, science really has allowed an explanation of the world using natural forces at work instead of utilizing supernatural forces that cannot be calculated using tools or interpreted with the human senses or any technology. Though however, there's always this random ancient philosophy I find interesting, about how what all we see and hear, etc, are fake, that our senses are completely wrong, and that to know you know absolutely nothing based on this fact-stops your ignorance of the world-I'm pretty sure it was some Greek philosopher, Plato or Aristotle maybe?

You know, some people could argue that scientific advances have proven the God and such is real...

...then again, it could be said the opposite too

I'd like to point out that the god of the gaps ad hoc is narrowing because of scientific advances. Anything we don't know about, these people would say "lol this is proof god exists". When we find out something that perfectly explains it with science, they move goalposts. Eventually, we're going to narrow it so much that any evidence of a god existing is so minimal no one takes it seriously anymore.

They can also prove the existence of the FSM and a flying teapot between Earth and Mars if you really torture your arguments to that point.

I'm agnostic.

... Yeah, I don't really have anything to say when it comes to religion.

there's none, but there's no proof that said god doesn't exist either.

Extremely late response but that's true.

idk, I went for what I thought was the better and logical answer.

It's true, but it's also meaningless. Does it make sense to say there's no proof a teapot isn't orbiting the Sun between Earth and Mars, so it's true? The burden of proof is on the one making the claim.

Protestant Christian, with the little credibility my religion has left. Damn Westbourogh and prosperity churches...

There is also Carl Sagan's dragon in the garage.

It's really just ad-hoc hypothesis and it's also why understanding Occam's razor is so important.

I believe in shrek and waluigi.

Lol, jk, I am an atheist, but I have nothing wrong with people believing in religions, as long as they don't promote bad things.

Waluigi is my favourite Mario character (I don't know how that's relevant but whatever), and I also respect the fact that you are an atheist. Like you, if someone is a different religion than mine, I still respect them, as long a their religion doesn't bring about negative effects, like killing people.

It's not the religion that makes them kill people, it's the people themselves who choose to kill.

Yes, but some rather extreme religions encourage people to murder, and sometimes it works.

Those people choose to join those fucked up ideologies that don't even qualify as religions. Jihadism isn't Islam, it isn't a religion, it's about enforcing an ideology that will make a small group rich and powerful while everyone else will have to stay under their control.

Of course, an asshole is an asshole regardless of what religion the asshole decides to follow. However, some assholes, like the entire Westboro Baptist Church use their religion as a justification to promote hatred. Religion can motivate hatred.

Yep.

Then there are those who feel that X is wrong because "the bible said so" or whatever, and somehow think they must be God's personal police officer and clean up the mess themselves.

Let God handle it.
