Faith is what one uses to believe claims without evidence. If evidence exists, one does not need faith, because one has knowledge. In light of this, science and faith are necessarily incompatible. Science is an evidence-based process, not a world-view. Religion is a faith-based belief system, a world-view.

A scientist who believes in evidence for the existence of god either does not understand evidence or does not understand science. Or they have erected a cognitive dissonance within them that will impair their ability to evaluate evidence and thus diminish their ability to accurately evaluate reality (reality being the sum of things that are true).

Believing in something for which there is no demonstrable evidence is not scientific, it is delusional.

That way lies madness.

CrakrJak: "I'll take Jesus` words over any others and no proof is needed to know they are the truth."

But you`ve never heard Jesus` words. All you`ve ever heard is what other people *CLAIM* that Jesus said and did. So you aren`t taking Jesus` word, you`re taking the word of some nameless authors of the Gospels without any evidence that they`re right.

Furthermore, what kind of lame deity is afraid of a little fact checking to determine if what he/she/it said is true? If I were a god I`d make sure my claims were easily verifiable.

@5Cats: You`re conflating the "trust" definition of "faith" with the blind "belief without evidence or in spite of the evidence" definition of "faith" we`re using here. They`re two different things.

Also,
"So you dismiss the entirety of the article outright. Well, that does prove that you are a Christian."
I'm an atheist who was raised Jewish and I also think the article was crap.

@Lord Jereth,
For some believers, the discoveries of science are confirmations of the wonders of God.

However, with all that being said, here are two that I know have been discussed to death, and some reasonable discussion on them.
