Differing Points of View

(Anonymous)
Biased view points have always been a hinderance in society. I, a professing Christian, am greatly disturbed by this site. I know and correspond with numerous intelligent people, scientists and others, who are devout followers of the Christian faith. Their I.Q. is nothing below average. I myself love science, and yet, I remain a Christian. I know the contradictions, I've read them and debated them. Science is based on observation. No theory is ever proven true, a scientist can only fail to reject it. You do not believe in God, I do. I respect your choice to not believe in God. Just remember, your theories aren't the only one out there.

Re: Differing Points of View

Your reasoning can be considered flawed since you are basing it on the people you know and hang out with. You might choose to hang out with intelligent religious people, which do exist. The study didn't say no religious people were intelligent, only that the -average- was lower.
The study above used information from several dozen scientific studies, and represents a far large population sample, one that you cannot claim to be more accurate than. Perhaps you might counter with data on an actual scientific experiment or survey done, if you know of one that shows your view.

I was delighted to see someone actually commenting from a faith point of veiw! The title of the strand says it all - differing points of view. This site and all those created by Vexen are his veiws only - I wonder why he believes in satan and not god? Is his intelligence any higher or any lower as regardless of what he says, surely he is a monothiest, being a satanist?

Re: Differing Points of View

I go to great lengths to provide a forum for every page so that others can input their views. And, my pages are largely backed up by evidence - footnoted - so that you can often check where the information and data comes from. I am largely, merely, a presenter of evidence.

I am an atheist - there are no Gods, no Devil's etc. An evil Satan is a better symbol of reality, than is a good God.
