Religion Responds

Recently there as been an Internet post that should really bother everyone who loves freedom and this country. It goes like this

Dear Religion
While you were busy debating which chicken sandwiches were okay to eat, I just landed on Mars.
Your Friend

Interesting that the secular community would not only obscure the social issue, but hijack everyone in the scientific community as non-believers. Let me explain

First the social issue. The debate of which they speak is one of freedom of speech as well as freedom of religion. Everyone was more concerned about an individual's ability to express one's opinion, rather than the morality of the issue. If it had indeed been a moral conflict, I think you'd have seen protests from the opposing sides at their respective days of assembly at the chicken vendor. So the letter should have been addressed to...Dear Freedom of Speech Advocates. Both sides got to express their freedom of speech, and everyone was a winner. Religion had little if anything at all to do with the issue. Interesting those who claim to be intellectual members of the scientific community missed that! I propose this was more the secular community speaking out using the guise of science. While I support their right to make this absurd statement, I really feel the like those in the scientific community who were spoken for need to respond to this irresponsible poke at those who believe.

The letter also makes a huge assumption that the bulk of the scientific community is of a secular view. With 77% of America and 1/3 of the world aligning themselves as Christians, It's quite a leap to assume all of the scientific community lacks faith.

Scientist understand that nothing in this world takes place without a cause. They also understand that science is merely man's best explanation of those events and is constantly under revision. Truth be told, most of what science does is based on theory. Theory arrived at by input from flawed man, and as every scientist knows, imperfect data yields imperfect assumptions. The scientists who doesn't begin their observations with a predisposed outcome understands they will never have enough knowledge to announce that nothing is producing an observable affect as claimed by secularists. A scientist would have to exhaust every nook and cranny of the universe and then do it again to be sure they didn't miss something the first time to make that leap about creation with any credibility. Ergo the only plausible answer is that there is a Creator with a purposeful design. Since there is a Creator, science will have to take a back seat to religion and lay it's arrogance to rest, while science and religion exist in harmony. If you take exception to this, ask a knowledgeable mathematician!

Enjoy Mars!

God Bless!
