Entertaining for sure...

This thread really makes a lot of things pretty clear. The hyper religious, and the hyper science crowds are pretty much identical when it comes to levels of huberus and the "matter of fact" nature of their perspectives. Despite what you subscribe to, be it a religion or a scientific theory, I can do you one better. It goes like this....NOBODY KNOWS. It's ok to say it. Because I'm honest enough with myself to say that I don't need special edicts from a divine entity to treat people kindly. I'm also honest enough to know that science has its limits, though we've seen more scientific breakthroughs as of late than religious miracles, I again emphasize the limits science is faced with when it comes to some of the most basic functions of our existence. You see, for me, it's not a competition between science and religion, nor one between believers and non believers. The fact is, no one alive today was there at the beginning of it all. So, no one alive today really has anymore authority than any other on the topic of how it all began. Even the Big Bang theory is just a theory. I think the only real way to live is from a perspective of appreciation. Appreciate the fact that an incalculable amount of circumstances throughout time had to occur for me to be typing these words to you. If any one of these events didn't happen, we might not have been born. So the simple fact that we are here, and can perceive ourselves with some sense of self reflection and mystery is in and of itself worthy of adoration to the culmination of events that took place for us to reach this point. No need to name the actual event we owe our existence to (God or Big Bang), just be damn glad it happened. Now, back to your bickering.....

What say you my fellow countrymen?! Onward!!! TO LIBERTY!!!
