God is Imaginary: #4 Think about science.

Think about science.

When I was debating in college, my coach said that there was a form of argument that was much stronger than any other, and that was the retort. A retort is an argument that says, "Not only is what they say wrong, the truth is precisely the opposite." In this case, I do not need to repeat what has been said elsewhere. That retort is enough.

Their argument is, however, a devastating assault on polytheistic religions. "Why did that happen?" "Oh, it's the whim of some god or other." Unless you have a consistent, unchanging God, they are correct that religion contradicts science. However, the foundational assumption that there is a God of order who created order, is entirely consistent with the scientific method.

Back to the Fifty Reasons.
