The truth about science

Posted by rayww on December 12, 2002, at 21:12:55

I got into this science/religion thing in my other post, but then deleted it because it was getting too wordy, but after I read the posts on the Admin board, I wish I'd kept it up. I think the science/religion topic is one worth looking at.

Sometimes things are said on the other board that discount faith. It's hard to argue with science, and who would want to? However, have you ever tried to sell your $160 text book to next year's college student? Lucky if you get $3.00. Why? Because it is out-dated as soon as it is written. Now, take the Bible............

I echo what Lou said in his final post on the Admin board. I've been out of town for a few days and am being pressed right now to take care of a few things, so I don't have much time. But there is one thing I would like to say, and I do hope I convince you all that this is true:

My favorite color is blue. Yes, blue is the best color of all. After all, the sky looks blue, the ocean, the lakes, rivers, and my eyes. Does saying this mean I look down upon all those who like pink or purple, or green? Does it infer that I think you are lower than I if you prefer yellow? My favorite smell is the smell of rain and fresh air. In fact, I believe in fresh air. I am thankful I live in big sky country where I can breathe fresh air. Do I pity or look down on those who live in smog? I used to live in smog and I pittied myself. I felt it was going to give me cancer. I couldn't wait to move out of it. I prefer to view life through a christ-focused lens. Does that mean I cannot respect you for choosing a Budda lens or an Athiest lens? My best friends are Athiests, Jews, Bible-bashing Christians, and Mormons.

So, enough of this picky poky. State your views and be done. Learn from Lou, me, Bob, and the others. Sort it out and figure out your own belief for yourself. Pick a little here and there, learn from everyone, choose what settles with you.

I wrote this in a hurry, so if I offended anyone, then just get un-offended because it wasn't intended. rayww
