No, it's not by xPine No, it's not by xPine
It's been awhile since I did a stamp... or uploaded pretty much anything. But eh, my stamps usually come from frustration I've had.

No, I really don't care what your religion is. You have the right to practice it and everyone should respect that. You think your religion should be involved in secular choices? I believe you are wrong, but that's your opinion. Opinions are not facts. However, factual information that can be proven are facts, whether you want to believe in them or not.

I have seen so many people reject the theory of evolution, or just science in general when it conflicts with their religion. I just don't understand. I know there's a stamp with "evolution is not a matter of belief!" and I'm cool with that, so I'll make this stamp broader. Whether it be evolution, the age of the earth, or whatever, that is SCIENCE. Not fake things through in by atheists to disprove religious worship. It's 2 + 2 =4. It can be tested, and proven with the tests. That is fact. You may say "but it's a theory, it's not a fact!" which is true. We cannot see a slideshow of our evolutionary history over the past millions of years. We cannot SEE it. That's what makes it a theory. Are there things we can use to prove links and connections? Yes. DNA testing, the mapping of the human genome, anatomical studies, carbon dating and so forth.

For anyone who doesn't have the simplest sense of biology I can understand why they'd be ignorant on the topic of evolution and seem why it could be a bit out there. But believe me, there is evidence. And you cannot reject that evidence just because your religion contradicts it.

Putting more of my own opinion here now: you CANNOT get your beliefs involved with secular affairs, such as public education. Part of me died when I heard an AP biology student complain that Darwin was taught because she doesn't believe in it. Part of me died knowing an AP bio kid in my class stated that he only believed in evolution "for school".

This is real stuff. This has factual evidence. You have the right to think what you want, but you cannot argue that there is no facts. And please, don't get it involved with secular affairs.

Generally when it comes to science and religion I tend to try to put the two together (as in using science to solve the mysteries of Gods work and how he achieve them)

I'm quite touchy and defensive when it comes to my faith and being a Catholic, but somehow science never bothered me . . . *shrugs* I don't understand the problem. Science only convinces me in my faith. It proves it, not the opposite.

Unfortunately, though, there are people who treat science like a religion. The ones that refuse to understand that knowledge can be dangerous or that there are things that science isn't qualified to deal with.

I always want to facepalm when fellow atheists go around announcing stuff like "I only believe in science" or "science is my religion"
And then there's the extremely religious people who claim that creationism etc is science, or that because science isn't always 100% accurate it's all lies.

If you dig a bit deeper it IS a matter of belief... since you are believing in the objective reality. ;)

And reasoning is a part of human mind, no one can completely occlude objective reasoning from their nature. Which is why even the most religious of people feel the absolute needs to "rationalize" their beliefs in a (quasi) scientific way.

If anybody truly did not believe in science they will not even get offended by it. The people that do, ironically, are admitting their own shortcomings in that department.
