In the beginning, there was nothing.

And then Chuck Norris round-house kicked that nothing in the face and said, "Get a job!"

And that is how the universe was born.

every one knows that when the world was created jesus, chuck norris, and elvis presley rode on the backs of red white and blue pterodactyls while they went over the story of the bible while shooting molten crucifixes at the dinosoars killing all of them. its simple science.

As a firm believer in the metaphysical and scientific, I find it funny that as we move forward with our research, we begin to find that the two are moving closer together. Studies in particle, astro, and quantum physics are showing us that our reality may not be the only one, that multiple universes are not only possible, but probable.
Do science and the metaphysical stand at odds to each other? Personally, I don't think so. The British call it a lorry, the North Americans call it a truck, the French call it un camion. The name for an object is merely there to help us to identify with it. God, Allah, Kali, Odin, unified field theory, same poop, same pile, different name.

them taht that was the truth and nothing more but there were people out there that believed in "your little fairy tail" and now look at all the knowlege we have today. And finnaly i know that people that believe certain religons have certain beliefs and rules and guidlines that they fallow to achive what their goals are be it in this life or the next and no not every one who says they are part of that religion fallow them and for each religon there are conciquences for those actions. Not every one who doesnt fallow all the rules is a bad person it all depends on what you believe and what you believe will become of your choices but you can not group evey person and every religion just becaus of some people becaus taht is a debate in itself with any religon

@madest: do you think that you get your opinion across better or change minds by simply sounding smart or coming up with bullpoo facts wich you have not put any reserch in what-so-ever ? Now im not going to say that i know everything about christianity because i dont and im not going to say i know everything about any religion cus i dont but you nor i know for sure that all or none of any religion exists its all based on beliefs and everyone is entitled to them those kind of beliefs are what helps influances our decisions if you had no fear of being punished for your actions (well maybe not you personally) then what kind of world do you think we would live in today? Whether it be true or untrue what right do you have to try and convince others that they are wrong and i know thats awful hippocritical because i know religions to just that. A wile agout people thought the world was flat and now look at today and im sure there were people out there just like taht that tried to convince

@madest, you are cherry picking the evidence. While complications did have a slightly higher percentage, overall major events and 30 day mortality was statistically equivalent across all 3 of the test groups. The conclusion drawn by the researchers was that prayer had "no effect on complication-free recovery from coronary artery bypass graft". It absolutely did not prove that prayer does more harm, that was simply media spin and is now Atheist spin.

@hwkiller, what I think people are responding to here is a belief that this picture mocks the young earth Creationists, not the metaphysical realm as a whole.

I agree with you about science and God, but I'm curious about your thoughts since you are a Scientist and a Christian. Do you see what harm young earth Creationists do to the world and Christianity? How do you reconcile the differences between the Bible and Science?

Thanks for posting the link to that study, davymid. It's interesting, but I still object to madest's assertion, based on this single study, that it has been "proven" that prayer does more harm than good. At best, this study demonstrates that prayer may in some cases do more harm than good. Hardly scientific proof- which brings me back to my original, more general objection misapplying scientific data to make stronger claims than warranted- especially to back up one's own beliefs or to discredit another's- it does a disservice to science.

Yeah thanks davymid. That was it. Geewhiz, I thought everybody knew that. Certainly wan't trying to "offend" sbleez... That study was just a few years ago and it made all the news outlets. You must have been born after that...

Maybe the study would have had better results if they didn't jump to the conclusion that religious people have "benevolent intentions" as you put it. Nobody can see inside another's head so perhaps some of those religious people were actually praying for the subject to die so they could go home and have some dinner..

Everyone STFU...It's clearly just a joke. like ha ha ha laugh at it. If its not funny to you then look at the other wonderful content hosted on IAB :l There's no need to type out 4 paragraphs on your religious beliefs.

To be completely honest, I don't understand why this site seems to love cheapshots at religion.
What will that accomplish?

Insulting religious people will help your "cause" just as much as the Christians who shove their beliefs down others' throats.

This is a pretty funny picture. For no reason should it have been used for a cheap shot from what I like to call "evangelical atheists".

You don't believe in the metaphysical realm; that's fine. You don't have to.
Others do believe in the metaphysical realm; that's fine. They have that right.

You can't prove there isn't a metaphysical realm. They can't prove there is a metaphysical realm.

Why is this such a problem?
I understand there are lots of really stupid religious people who honestly ruin the name of their people. I understand many wars have occurred due to religion (and still are). Blame the people. Not the religion.

"ORLLY Madest? How so? Cite a peer-reviewed study."

--------------

Sorry, staying out of this one, just thought I could help answer that question: I believe Madest is referring to a study by Harvard Medical School in 2006, which was one of the few properly conducted scientific tests on the effects of prayer (scientists normally don't bother with such research, so there's not much literature on it).

Anyways, headline of that study is that post-op heart surgery patients who were told they were being prayed for (and were prayed for) were not only just as likely to develop complications than those who weren't prayed for, but were actually MORE likely to develop complications (59% vs 52%). Link to the study HERE.

Like I said, not getting involved in the debate, just helping out with a specific question.

@defiythelie it's not. Infact it has nothing to do with religion at all. It's from this blog. They have lots of these. They're made up, photoshopped and pretty funny.

I've got a more personal take on it:

Religion is a direct threat to my freedom and my life.

Science isn't.

Remember the hole in the ozone layer that was going to kill us all? Remember scientists in the 1970s who were predicting the coming of the next ice age?


Like a lot of people, you are confusing media stories that are slightly about science with science. The usual scenario is like this:

Amidst a lot of speaking or text, a scientist comments that quite a lot of time has passed since the last ice age.

A reporter hears or sees this and next day the headline reads SCIENTISTS SAY ICE AGE WILL START SOON!

The metaphysical is not for science. Science has to 'bracket' that question and all questions pertaining to it.
Don't make absolute statements in the case of the metaphysical. The answer is outside the realm of science. The only thing left to say is whether you *personally* believe in something besides the physical.

Theology is for the metaphysical. We can't prove it. And that's fine too. That's not the realm of science anyway.

Scientific skepticism isn't the act of assuming the inexistance of some entity when unobserved. It's remaining skeptical of its existance when unobserved. To say "God doesn't exist" is just as blind as "God does exist," simply because the scientific realm does not extend to the metaphysical, it's strictly tied to the physical. "I don't believe God exists because I need empirical evidence first" is acceptable.
"God doesn't exist because I haven't seen any evidence" is not. That's not scientific skepticism. That's an absolute statement.

No scientists should outright *deny* the existence of something based on whether he or she has not seen it. If the question of whether something exists is outside of the possibility of science, it simply means we cannot prove it. It doesn't rule out believing in it.

@sbeelz
Yeah, he's not correct at all, actually. Prayer, spirituality, theology, whatever you want to call it, has been found to be healthier for people.
Why?

1) Constant, unyielding perceived social support.
2) Even when feeling out of control, they feel that someone greater is in control.
3) Greatly increased self-efficacy.
And quite a number more.
Once the proxy server that allows me to access the databases I need comes back up, I'll give you the citations for it. (In case you don't know, control and social support are very significant in the formation of cardiovascular disorders; they are protective factors).

I am christian, but I'm also very much so a scientist (as in, it's my occupation). People need to remember this:
Science allows us to better understand the world and how it works. It's empirical, it's objective, and it brackets questions which it cannot possibly answer. And that's fine.
