so i went creeping onto a christian forum on COM, and ran across a thread about dinosaurs and whether they were real, and how do christians explain them if they were. i was really disheartened at how many answers were attacking science. it was said that why should they believe in science, science isn't perfect. nobody really has the answers, yada yada. i am sure these same women would be willing to bet their childs life on the theory of gravity, yet take nothing that a scientist can say to disprove the existance of god seriously.
i don't know, i think i'd be more willing to accept the answer that they just don't know, and don't have the answer as to why there are conflicting accounts and just have faith that god will steer them in the right direction. but to completely disregard science seems downright weird to me.
i am not trying to bash on religion. i even wonder if atheists do this with some things, and how they would generally explain their reasoning why they don't believe in the science.
