Religious people. Do you put 100% of your beliefs in your creator/deity, or do you believe certain things are caused by science?

And if you give 100% of your belief to your deity, what do you think of science itself?

  • i think everything can be explained with science but God is the one that makes it all happen!

  • I believe that science is what we use to figure out what God did. I believe it leads us to God.

    But I think some scientists have let pride get in the way, and have tried to take the place of God.

  • I don't understand why people think that they two can't work together. For instance the Human body is a HUGE scientific study. We still can't figure out what half the brain is for. BUT that doesn't mean that it wasn't created by God.

    To me the two work hand in hand. The Gods rule our world but Science is ours. I believe in Creator Guided Evolution, Science is not wrong in my opinion, but the Gods still had their hand in it.

    Just because Science can explain why the wind blows doesnt mean that the Gods aren't helping it to happen... Or at the very least didn't put it all in to motion...

  • God gave us science, so that we could understand some things. Sure some things have gone in the wrong direction, but we were given a free will, and a desire to learn.

  • I think it can be a combo of both. I dont see why it couldnt or wouldnt.

    Like Sabrina said...they work hand in hand(imho). I just dont think the creators get all that involved in every itty bitty thing. I think they expect us to use the brains given to figure it out and progress.

    We may never know everything or how involved the creators might be in everything and thats alright by me.

  • There are types of scientists that use the technology to become like God. They want to create life from nothing, they want to clone people, create a perfect race, etc.

    I am all for science, I just realize that you have to look at the research and decid for yourselves what to believe. For example, there are plenty of smart people that will tell you that vaccines are perfectly safe and effective. You have scientists that will tell you that there is no difference between organic and industrial foods. There are scientists that are on both sides of these issues.

    Some scientists believe in evolution, some scientists are just as smart and they don't. The problem I have is when the government gets involved and tells you what scientist you have to believe, when there is two sides to consider. You know. I want the right to look into things myself.

  • My personal believe is that God and science go hand in hand - God explains the Who, and science explains the how.

    Science is just man's way of trying to explain the complex beauty of God's creatons.

  • Science is 100% from God. Without God there would be no science.

  • I believe that God CREATED science. Jesus Christ knows the elements of the earth so well because he created them. That is why he was able to walk on water and perform other such miracles, because science obeyed his commands.
