Science, Faith, and Atheism

Seen in someone’s sig:

A simple test of the relative merits of science and religion is to compare lighting your house at night by prayer or electricity.

Two problems with this:

  1. Most religious people with access to electricity use it.  (Maybe we should try prayer… it worked for the Holy Prophet Elias [Elijah]!!  😉  )
  2. Survey data indicate that most scientists have some form of religion.  (Wonder why they don’t try saving their souls with science?!!)
