  1. Here's another sad attempt at mixing religion with science. Unfortunately for some scientists the two cannot be separated. It's unfortunate since scientists' beliefs or considerations of such crap can get publicized and many more less educated readers also seriously consider such BS. One might remember that a Catholic Priest invented the Big Bang theory (BB), and Pope Pius XII said that he considered the BB model a religious possibility that did not necessarily contradict the Bible. https://www.livescience.com/cosmic-microwave-sign-from-creator.html?utm_source=Selligent&utm_med

  2. That's a good example. The "rhythms of God," of course, being the universe itself and not a god. Whatever was expected to come from a god (control factors in the universe, universal law) instead point back at natural, as opposed to supernatural foundations. Looking for the supernatural reveals greater depth within the natural order of the universe. Even to the extent of theory like multiverse or similar. What's beyond the universe, god??? Well, not exactly. Infinite and eternal natural space, more universal regions, and the like, spanning out forever. The deeper you go,

  3. Even though most scientists are generally wasting their time, intellect, and other's money, in such religion motivated studies, once in a while they make discoveries that others, and sometimes themselves, realize have scientific importance. Such a person was Johannes Kepler who looked for the rhythms of God (via equations) that controlled our solar system. Kepler incorporated religious ideas, arguments and reasoning into his work and teachings at his Catholic seminary, motivated by his religious convictions and belief that God had created the world according to an intelligible plan that was ac

  5. I think there is nothing more self evident than the reality that everything is connected to and depends on everything else. You can't even describe anything without including its environment. To realize that the bee can't exist without the flower and the flower can't exist without the bee implies a much larger picture that is, if thought through to the end, is all inclusive. That is not woo but just the way things work. The implication of that means we are something that includes components reaching far beyond our skin with no limit. To be "all that is" is an obvious and simple definition of "

  6. That's kind of a weird argument to make. Those same Judeo-Christian values, while static in the book, have been wholesale reinterpreted to meet the whims of the society. You should ask them to clarify which values exactly? Western Society has included these very specific religious gems: The Inquisition Indulgences (sold for hundreds of years) The Crusades Salem Witch Trials European Wars of religion (30 years war among others) And the Professor's inclusion: Divine Right Manifest Destiny Your questioner needs t
