Science is not Atheism

17 January 2014, 11:59
We once again have a rockit signtist Christian asking Atheists Scientific Questions, Let me help you define Science. Science is the exploration of everything, Scientists will study Chemical compounds and their reactions to one another, Another Branch of Scientists may study the Bee and it's relationship to the survival of the human race. Scientists may create Hypothesis to explain something. A hypothesis is a best guess scenario based on observation. This hypothesis will then be tested by other scientists in a process known as peer review and if enough Scientists reach the same results and no other results can be found, A theory may be posited to describe these results. Let me try to simplify this, Isaac Newton was lying under a tree when an apple dropped on his head, He observed that whenever you dropped something it fell to the ground. He hypothesised that there must be some force creating this effect. He did some testing and found that all items dropped will act the same. A few other Scientist types, his peers reviewed his experiments and could not only duplicate them, but could not find any variances or opposite reaction to Newtons Hypothesis. The Theory of Gravity was born. 
Darwin originally hypothesised that the strongest survive based on his observations in Galapogas. Since that hypothesis, 1000's of Scientists over the century and more, world wide have checked his hypothesis and at some point the Hypothesis morphed into a Theory. This Theory is backed with a whole pile of evidence and is accepted as a truth by many clergy including The Church of Child Molestors from Rome. The fact that these Theories are backed by evidence and are supported by people from numerous religious backgrounds does not make this an "Atheist Belief"
The Big Bang Theory is yet another Theory based on a hypothesis that has been tested and is as it stands the best understanding we have of where it all started. I know many many Atheists who don't know and don't care about where we all came from. We leave that stuff to Scientists, Researchers and Mathematicians to get all hot and bothered about. Everything we have discussed thus far is Science, Nothing is a unique belief or understanding of Atheists. Religious leaders throughout the world that understand Science agree that these Theories are as close as we can currently get to understanding the universe.
Remember there is a difference between Science and Pseudo Science. Homeopathy, Global warming and Young Earth Creation are what we call pseudo sciences. Consensus between a group of people does not make something true or real. When other Scientists are observing different things and getting anomonalous results to experiments, We cannot say that the Science is settled. When the basis for a "Scientific Hypothesis" has been proven to be a fraud, you cannot just ignore those findings and continue to bleat that the Science is real, Then you start taking stuff on faith. The moment faith enters any equation it is no longer Science. 
Now that you hopefully understand what Science is, Let's discuss what Atheism is and is not.
Atheism is not Science, It is not a Religion, It is simply a non belief in Gods. All Gods. You know the Greek Gods that are now considered mythology was a real religion, with real adherents, prophets and temples. As easily as you dismiss the religion of those early greeks is as easily as we Atheists dismiss the mythology of the Abrahamic God and his side kicks.
Atheist become Atheist from many different religions, for many different reasons, some, like me, because we read the Bible and deciphered the code, the lies and the myths. Some because they found Science and it made more sense than the archaic tales by shepherds and wanderers from the iron age or even earlier depending on the religion. Some became Atheists for a myriad of reasons.  
Atheism does not have rituals, It does not have priests, pastors or temples. Atheism does not have faith in Science or deities. Atheism is simply  a non belief in any Gods, Godesses, Demons or any other supernatural beings conceived by men.

When putting a murderer on trial one needs to disregard his social status. This in my eyes is something they didn't do. They should have treated him as "Oscar, the guy who killed Reeva".  Read more...
