Re: Why There Will Always Be Religion.
It's the reason why religion will never be obsolete.
 Quoting: *Evan


There will come a point in time when science and technology make religion obsolete.

I don't think the words "angels" and "demons" will still be in the vocabulary a thousand years from now.

Just think of how much technology has changed our lives in the last 100 years alone.

Once the supercomputers turn into artifical intelligence, machines will do the thinking for us...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 43686166


That's my point, I know many believe this...but the fact that the spirit world DOES exist...will be the reason that religion will always be around.
 Quoting: *Evan


well, in some ways you could say science is a form of religion.

It can be seen that way...

Some hold onto it like a belief...some give money to it...

Although I happen to be a huge fan of science, but also faith.

Science is the study of the creation, religion/spirituality is the study of the creator/spirit.

For the record, electrons and bacteria have always existed too, but we began to understand what they are and how they work, and we generally understand now that lightning or disease are not the wrath of an angry deity.

Religion is pretty much what fills the gaps in our understanding.

Maybe. But a very different religion than the ones we have today.

I think it would be more Scientology-ish if science would find a "spirit realm"...

So you just ignore the millions and millions of eye witness testimony...even from those who don't consider themselves religious?

Re: Why There Will Always Be Religion.
Plain and simply it's because the "sprirt world" exists.

There are millions and millions of people who have had experiences with "ghosts" or "demons" or "angels".

As long as people have these experiences...there will always be religion. People always looking to define what the spirit world is.

A self described Atheist will often change their minds about spirituality, once they come face to face with a paranormal incident. It happens all the time, all over the world.

The fac that there is a spirit world, is why there will always be religion.

IMO

sorry OP, science has explained it:

You pathetic uneducated teenagers have no clue what religion is. You read the bible literly and where it says "fish fell fromthe sky" you actually think they fell from the sky right? Give me a break. Calling religion bullshit when science has "theories" and "ideas" that they make up to make them look right.

"oh hold on this way doesnt work, so im just gonna ad one here and divide it by 3 here!! There we go! Now i discovered something and make millions"

Science is as pathetic and corrupt as the radical Islam.

Re: Why There Will Always Be Religion.
why are we alive? what happens after death? that we are not able to answer.

But how the sun works. how the sun is created. what happens when it dies we can explain. Gravity. There even is a theory for warp. Gravitiy slows down time even. We are able to teleport light.

But there are particles that bahave diffrently if you observe them or not so who knows.

im with you op anyway :p. life should not be explained with numbers.
