    Glad to see that the overall trend of a mistrust of science is reversing the the field of Biology in the classroom.

    https://evolution-outreach.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12052-020-00126-8

    At a time when misinformation seems to be rampant a decades-long effort aided by the scientific community is bearing fruit. Results published on 10 June show that the proportion of US secondary-school biology teachers who present creationism as a scientifically valid alternative to evolution fell from 32% in 2007 to 18% in 2019 And the amount of class time devoted to human evolution shot up by almost 90%.

    @TheComebackKid

    Hopefully this cultural war against Science can reverse just like it did here!

    Science can say nothing about how the universe came into existence because no one was there.

    Engineers and scientists working with computers have shown that nothing organizes itself in a functioning way apart from prewritten, inscribed information.

    Like many leftists, TS @Voodoo_Child906 is someone who makes appeals to authority. Always ironic when leftists talk about how enlightened they are while engaging in such fallacious thinking.

    Science is basically observation. You look at something and you draw conclusions. No one observed creation, no one was there except the Creator. Science can say nothing about origins. Science can say nothing about how the universe came into existence because no one was there.

    William Lane Craig is an authority on philosophy. He says God exists. Therefore God must exist. That's basically the thinking of @Voodoo_Child906 on other topics. He just just doesn't apply these critical thinking skills consistently.

    Science doesn't really have to explain an origin story if the universe or "something" is infinite.

    Sounds like you don't understand your "creator"...

    What’s funny is there was a documentary / movie that came out in 1999 called The Matrix that already explained all of this yet people still don’t get it.

    Science is well versed on how the universe came into existence. I’m always confused as to why people say science doesn’t know this. They do.

    One of the biggest concerns I have right now is the anti science crowd, not that you are one of them. I’m very concerned with the lack of respect for science

    so you believe in some imaginary "creator" but not all of the knowledge of human existence?

    Science can no longer live with the fact that everything came out of nothing, it's just too massive, too vast and complex. But at all costs, you have to avoid the God of the Bible, or you come under His moral law and His judgement.

    It can say a fair bit about evolution though, which I believe is the point.

    Science relies on all kinds of assumptions. Read some Feyerabend.

    Wrong, I was there, so were you. Just in a different form.

    why cant i mistrust both?

    They are both theories that came from men.

    My little pea-brain cannot fathom the concept of something arising from nothing, nor Time having no beginning.

    I dont know how anyone can jump up and down in vehement assurance on the subject.
