← Does science make belief in God obsolete?

terradea: 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.

Could that argument be an explanation for a rise in the number of religious whackjobs fundamentalists in the US specifically, and the world in general?
