Check it out on virus.lucifer.com.
What is the difference between science and religion
anyway? I might be discovering warm water all over
again, but both seem to be based on a set of rules of
perception that can not be proved within that set, and
both have a tendency to be exclusive of each other as
much as different religions are exclusive of each
other...When I am asking what is the difference, I was
asking about the structural ones; obviously science
gives us quite a bit more useful tools and toys then
religions usualy do...;)
