    How can science be against God!!

    I don’t and won’t attempt to discus religion. as I know, most well known scientist and physicists do believe in God the one who creates the universe [not all], but I noticed that a number of you guys don’t.... in fact, I’m posting this to understand those of you who claim that they are non believers of such a god [Atheists]. Truly, loud and clear DON’T speak about religion [unless if religion itself is the cause of you turning to be an atheist, and don’t mention what religion was it, cause it’s not about comparisons between religions], and what scientific claims are there that proves there is no God?


    I really want to know from you guys:smile:

    You know that? I certainly don't think it's particularly clear. Unless you have actual evidence to back claim like this, you really should avoid them.

    I am agnostic, it's good insurance.

    fine then, no you're right, but it's not even the point of this thread [and note I did said not all, and that also doesn't necessarily means they're idols if the most are/aren't believers, I just wana say there are both views in the scientific community] I need to hear from the members here what do they think.

    As far as I know, most of them don't, and I know quite a bunch of them personally.
    As far as I know, the few who do have some sort of faith would certainly not express it as naively. Several physicists who are believer and with whom I could talk personally would claim that faith feelings can be described as you share emotions, but not explained rationally and certainly not depicted as a human story, with a hero creating something and a villain trying to destroy it.

    I think science and religion play in a different universe. None of them should contradict the other, otherwise it indicates one has conceptual issues with at least one of them. For me, your statement is as good as saying "car mechanics can fix my kitchen cooking".

    Atheists = no belief in deities.

    Most scientist I know and talk to are atheist. The ones who DO hold a faith though are as humanino stated not doing so naively. And most don't follow religious scripture as innerent.

    I myself would consider myself an atheist... but I still beleive something brought about the existence of our universe... but thats in another thread. You can go read it if you like. https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=314292

    This isn't philosophy. Just an opinion poll.
