Never mind unbiased experimentation, then, Violin... Quantum mechanics has so many new and counter-intuitive theories like the cashmir effect that calling it "god" before you are correctly able to quantify everything falls somewhat short of the true spirit of science... If you stare at clouds long enough you're bound to find one that looks like a pointy witch riding a broom. That doesn't mean disney-style witches exist and are really just screwing with us.
Seriously, I'm actually pretty depressed about this lately. Basically all the Japan tsunami videos on youtube are filled with religious nutjobs saying that we need to pray to god, or that we've done something wrong and that god is punishing us...
Last year I randomly came down with diabetes, and since it was badly misdiagnosed by my GP at first, I came within a hair's breath of serious nerve damage to my eyes and limbs... Fifty years ago I would have just wasted away and died. Without science I would have just ceased to be, but all the while some preacher is wondering around the hospital trying to act like god saved my life... Never mind the fact that god must have created diabetes, tsunamis, and bed bugs with weaponized gonads aswell.
Religion is pure ignorance and I've already staked my life on the fact that if the big man exists, it's logically impossible for him to be someone worth praising.
As a footnote I really apologize for bringing this subject up around you, Kodos... I'm just feeling rather sour lately because of this kind of belief subjugating half the people around me. Hope you can see why I haven't been too comfortable discussing it on AIM.
