← Does science make belief in God obsolete?

terradea's Avatar Jump to comment 7 by terradea

The Christian religion is based on faith. Faith! I don't understand Christians who strive to "prove" this or that ... if they actually did prove anything, faith would no longer be required and the entire religion would be obsolete.

Science, if anything, should make true Christians even stronger because it would force them to have more faith! Think of it: if science absolutely proved that God never existed, the faith required to believe in God would root out the luke-warm believers. Christians, if they really wanted to strengthen their faith and religion, would welcome, even promote science.

The fact that Christians fight science only proves that they have no faith at all.
