Christianity and Science definitely don't mix. From the very beginning of the book of genesis, the conflict is unavoidable. You honestly believe that day and night were created, when the only sources of light in the universe weren't created until day 4 according to your holy text? I don't want to hear that "Well, he said let there be light first" nonsense, because that doesn't provide a physical light source.

There are plenty of other conflicts. Such as zoological conflicts (bats being birds, unicorns, satyrs, dragons, and cockatrices existing), Biological conflicts (If Adam and Eve were the only ones to begin with, then mankind wouldn't exist today at all, because incest results in undesirable defects such as retardation and infertility.) and so on and so forth. Then there's the absurdity that eating pork or shell fish sends you immediately to hell with no chance of redemption. This, of course, like every other supernatural idea in the bible, comes from the ignorance of the bronze-age tribesman that wrote it. They had no clue about proper food handling or preparation, and that goes for most cultures until post renaissance times anyways. So, what they clearly did was note that people eating pork and shellfish (Clearly not once prepared properly) died of horrible food-borne illnesses.

Science is quite corrosive to christianity. As we discover more about the universe beyond our solar system and how the universe works as a whole, we chisel away ever father at the creation stories of all mythologies, and the remote possibility of any of the traits or characteristics that make a deity as such. Your god doesn't exist.

And I don't want to hear about intelligent design. A crash lesson in human biology proves quite well that there's nothing intelligent about the layout or resilience of the human body. Our bones are relatively weak compared to the majority of the rest of the animal kingdom, we have useless organs like the Tonsils, our vertebrae are small, weak, and extremely vulnerable, as are most of our vital organs. The amount of force needed to stop a heart is extremely minimal and can be generated by a child. Our reproductive organs are extremely vulnerable as well. I can't see a single thing intelligent about the human body in regards to the idea that it was designed.

The other problem with intelligent design is the fact that the logic behind it fails. Rather than taking stock in the fact that EVERYTHING in the universe develops over time from simpler forms or components, you would rather believe that because everything we know of currently is so complex that it had to have a creator. The fallacy here, is that the fact that said hypothetical creator would have to be infinitely more complex than its creations. This means that the creator would require a creator, and no matter what, at some point something had to come from nothing, or nothing could exist. The answer to who created god is simple of course. The answer is man, not the other way around, and it is the most simplistic of all logic to come to this conclusion when one weighs the evidence of history, mythology, and science. The evolution of mankind as a species and its culture, and it's unfortunate development of religion both started from the simplest forms, which were hunter-gatherer tribes that out of necessity began farming. These primitive cultures had no way to explain natural occurrences like lighting, or tornadoes, or volcanic eruptions. When these things happened the only thing they could think of was that "The gods must be angry." When it rained the gods were blessing them. Eventually these tribes began to name these gods and create images and idols of what they looked like. As human culture progressed and became more complex, so did it's religions and the myths that went with them.

Scientology is a really good example of how all religions started, and the only things they ever have and ever will accomplish or do. It's a recent religion but it has a following almost big enough to rival the religions that originated over a thousand years ago.

To the poet...Save it for open mic night at the poetry club. This a debate, not a literature board.
