[quote="Wellsy"]Facts of nature do not contradict faith unless one chooses to interpret things literally.
Faith is fine but it exists beyond the bounds of reason and shouldn’t try to emulate reason".[quote]
NONSENSE - The second sentence negates the first sentence, which is reality turned on it's head.
It's 'faith' in religion, that interprets the 'facts of nature' to give credence to the creed of religion that has no basis in rhyme or reason.
It's a universally observed truth, that 'religion' interprets things 'literally', to suit it's agenda of brainwashing the ignorant & vulnerable.
The NONSENSE that sees the Catholic Church 'beatifying' 'miraculous' acts of 'healing' or 'witnessing' 'miracles' are clear examples of the idolatry or falsity that is 'religion' or 'faith'.
SCIENCE in contrast, based on what is called the 'Scientific Method', based upon 'theory', 'experimentation' & 'observation'.
Any of those three can be repeated by experiment or 'observation' & the 'theory' can be modified to accord with the experiment or observation.
NOTHING in science is immutable, ALL is amenable to reason, unlike 'faith' or 'religion', for which truthful observation or evidence is totally absent, a void filled by wishful thinking.
