It does require such assumption its part of the method if the assumption is not there then the scientific method would be useless because if the universe didn't follow a set of rules experiments and observations would be useless because each experiment and observation would have infinitely possible results with great variations.


Which doesn`t happen. Which means there is evidence. Which means that there is no need for the faith you`re trying to find in it.

@ Angilion Science is not a faith I said it is faith based. It does require such assumption its part of the method if the assumption is not there then the scientific method would be useless because if the universe didn't follow a set of rules experiments and observations would be useless because each experiment and observation would have infinitely possible results with great variations. Not undermining science in anyway whether its faith based or not its allowed us to make many advancements if I`m undermining anything its the belief of some atheists that they are beyond faith and that whose do have faith are somehow ignorant.

Science will never be able to prove or disprove God, believe what you want and find out, let others believe what they want and they`ll find out. But both sides need to quit with he High and mighty act while we wait and see.

@madest:

"Why do you need a book to determine right from wrong?"

Isn't the answer obvious? It`s easier for some to be told what to do rather than think about it for themselves.

He can just buy a bible and be told a bunch of certain truths about the world. It doesn`t matter if they`re true or not; it`s the feeling of certainty he likes.

It`s a comfort blanket for the brain. It suppresses all those unsettling thoughts about the uncertainty of the world...the kind of thoughts that make the rest of us become explorers and thinkers...the kind of thoughts that make him whimper and clutch for reassuring platitudes.

@CrakrJak:

"What reality is that ? Is it the 'I do whatever I feel like` Reality ?"

If us athiests do whatever we feel like, and we still do good things, then that surely means we are good people who feel like doing good things.

Whereas if you only do good through fear of being punished, then you might not even be a good person; if the threat ever lifted and you were unconstrained, who knows what you might be.

"Society needs a basis for it`s morals or they are just empty platitudes that can be swept away because they lack authority."

Maybe weak-minded people who don`t like to think for themselves need an instruction book.

And for them, we have such an instruction book; the rule of law, written democratically by all of us, not a handful of priests and prophets who appointed themselves rule-givers.

Because we abandoned that method of governance when we turned away from emperors and kings.

@ CrakrJak - Why is a book the only possible basis for morality? Do you think Atheists go around killing and raping any more than Christians?
