Do you think religion and science shouldn't be separate?
What Girls Said 4
Faith vs logic are two separate things in my eyes but I respect both views.
Unfortunately, religion makes claims that science says can’t happen.

that's actually wrong. we need philosophy but that's science also. religion has no place. so i disagree with that religion and science should be one. they can't ever be one, cause they're inherently different.
science tries to "know" things and define what we don't know in order to maybe eventually find out.
religion says we know everything aleady. that will never work together.
fuck religion, keep science.
They should be separate. One very important thing in science is that we don't take things by faith. We put ideas to the test and we apply the burden of proof.
Religion on the other hand expects its followers to have faith.
"Nullius in verba" Take nobody's word for it.
in sciences, you try understand things, you believe in one idea wirhout any proof and then you try to get proofs to validate or no your idea
in religions you have to believe in everything but you have no proof at all, every religion are slighly different so you can assume some are wrong at least in some part
Yea no when ever you mix the 2 you usually just end up with a Christian fundamentalist who can't even use carbon dating correctly also science science doesn't look for gods it just looks for facts and so far there isn't evidence to show their is a god to say otherwise is just based on feeling and that is very silly
I don't know I don't get the conflict, like I believe in science but there's also something beyond science, something that created the things around us that science is derived from
It has nothing to do with "views". Science requires evidence, scrutiny, and objectivity in order to function. Religion requires the absence of those things in order to function. This is a fundamental divide between the two that can only be coupled in a person who limits their critical thinking to their work, and doesn't let their mind participate in objectivity when it comes to anything to do with their own religion. And further, limits subjectivity to their faith and doesn't let their mind participate in it when they do their work (or they will fail as a scientist).
No, they should be separate. Completely separate. If you make religion a part of science, it's not science any more.
All I know is that they can and do coexist. At least from my point of view. I see science as trying to understand what God put into existence.
I disagree. Religion is already abused enough as it is.
I agree with you.
No.. That's not how it works..
Prior to Darwin writing "The Origin of Species," religion was science.
Beyond a cosmological argument, I don't see how the two could go hand-in-hand.
