>You wouldn't equate science with atheism would you?
I suppose it's horrible to admit, but, yes, I do. Or rather, I see the
state of being atheist, and the state of doing science, as innate states.
Base states. Places we start. Once a god is used as an explanation,
science is impossible. Once science is used as an explanation, god is
impossible. "Science is the first sin." -Neitzsche.
Reinforcingly anti-theistic. Unassumingly humanistic.
"Theism is mental inbreeding." - Yours truly.
And, I've written that on blackboards at the Harvard Divinity School, in
un-supervised moments, and that's as militant as I get.
