First the universe was "infinite" and everyone agreed. Then the universe was sphere shaped and everyone agreed. Then is was cylindrically shaped and everyone agreed. Then it was layered and everyone agreed. Then it was flat and everyone agreed. Now it's saddle shaped and everyone agrees. I wonder what the next shape will be when these great minds who can perfectly understand the inner workings of the universe without so much as being able to prove it under their own power by way of physical experimentation contradict their own "theory" yet again.
I'm not even a religious person but the point I'm trying to make is that theoretical science and religion are much the same. Fallacy upon fallacy, contradiction upon contradiction.
Good point...I love how people argue on here! LOL, someone writes a dissenting opinion only to get the retort, "Nope, youre wrong!"
Other people have explained in the thread already how religion and science are not at all the same. Science expands or completely changes depending on what actually happens in the world. Modern science is intentionally set up to be self-defeating and argued with to ensure that change and growth happens.
Religions are based on books and writings which are thousands of years old and can never change by their own set of rules. Modern religions are never meant to be argued with. It isn't a search for new things, it's a strict adherence to the past or you're excommunicated or killed.
They aren't the same and if anyone needs that explained to them then they obviously lack any critical thinking skills whatsoever.
