Science vs Faith
I watched atheists Larry Krauss and Michael Shermer debate Christians Dinesh D’Souza and Ian Hutchinson. The Christians taunted the atheists with how could scientists be sure that after watching Newton’s laws obeyed millions of times, it would be possible to notice god rarely performing a miracle and doing something non-Newtonian. The atheists pointed out nobody had ever seen this happen and if it did happen they would be sure to take a look. There are millions of instruments going about their routine business that would notice.
To me the Christians are barking mad. They are absolutely convinced of the existence of god even though they have never seen any evidence at all of his alleged bending of Newton’s laws. Further, they seem to think the relative certainty of the atheists is disreputable even though 100% of the evidence supports their contention there are no magical exceptions. In contrast, the Christians are 100% sure of god, without any supporting evidence whatsoever displaying not even a shred of embarrassment.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70) Debate: does science refute god?
