    I am an agnostic. I can only know what I actually know.

    Science is the art of knowing, and so I see no reason that those who do believe in God should reject it. What kid of God would give us the keys to discovering the workings of creation and then demand we don't use them?

    Forgiven, perhaps. But that does not wash away the dumb. This is one of the most annoying false dichotomies of our age.

    I don't think God ever said: "don't do science." I think a few politicians were afraid of losing power and used the "God said so" scapegoat. I feel like we had a giant reformation for something along those lines

    Very insightful, and I note your limited belief in many people’s abilities.
    Clear that you have a problem with those that have a religious belief and those with Religious beliefs still live in caves and write on stone tablets

    Science is the culmative knowledge we have of reality. Religion is mankind's first attempts to understand reality. They got a lot of things wrong.

    Now a days we see a whole range of interpetations of the old myths. A lot of people try to fit what we now know into these old myths and say it's compatable. To do this they have to move away from a literal definition of these myths. The compatability of religion and science is dependent on the flexibility of the interpeter. Those who want the old myths to be true and have meaning are quite flexible indeed.
    Ignorance is the refuge of faith
    It's become very apparent that there is nothing respectable about faith

    I believe in a Creator –Theism
    Science and Religious belief can coexist
    Not only can religion and science coexist in society but they can coexist, with no necessary contradiction, in a single, faithful mind.

    That isn't always the case when talking about a religious mind.

    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    In my experience it really all depends on what kind of "religious thing" one is reading.

    I find the writings of contemplatives and apophatics from many religious denominations to be spiritually enlightening. Where the two overlap, all the better.
