“Science is not only less reliable than faith, but faith is used in science."
Did I miss the science Crusades, the science Thirty Years War, or the science Spanish Inquisition?
How reliable is your faith, exactly? Are you a Christian? If so, what kind of Christian are you?
If you’re a Catholic, you may believe that your god directly revealed himself to a line of men who frequently embodied corruption, nepotism, and hypocrisy.
If you’re a Protestant, you’re already admitting that your faith is not 100% reliable, because why would there need to be a Reformation if faith is generally reliable?
If you’re Orthodox, how do you explain the abundance of Protestants and Catholics if faith is so reliable?
If you’re any kind of Christian, then how do you explain the plentiful and confusing abundance of contradicting interpretations of the same exact sacred texts?
If you're a Muslim, which tradition do you adhere to? How do you explain the existence and persistence of other sects? Why is your faith so fragile? Your holy book is even written in the same universal language, and you still have many of the same problems as the Christians.
You think faith is reliable? The wise walk by sight, not by faith.
