I believe in God. I think it's retarded to believe we just showed up out of nowhere and from nothing.
Meet the new boss (science community) same as the old boss (religious community).
They aren't the same. They are the exact opposite. Science is based on evidence and careful collection of data with strong criticism and scrutiny by all members of a community to look for and correct mistakes. Religion is just made up bullshit.You wouldn't understand the difference, obviously. Only sane, educate people would, and you aren't close to being either.
Nah science is made up of bullshit as well.
Organized religion is one of the biggest scourges on this planet.
