it doesn't directly disprove, it just heavily calls it into question. but religious people will just ignore whatever doesn't reinforce what they choose to believe.

Catholic doctrine and science law do not contridiction. many people think science disproves religion, when it doesn't

I think that science n religion can never come together. they r a pair of parallel lines never to merge with each other. In a very few cases the two may come with the same conclusion but majority cases include those where both not necessarily opposes each other but they have totally different conclusions.

sciences nowadays still cannot explain many things happened in the world. A very sick person who rather believe in god other then science, because he feels hope.

It isn't necessarily an all or nothing thing. People can believe in God but believe that early writers of religious texts just didn't understand the nature of the universe. We may find that there was some force that started everything in motion, but until we know everything we cannot simply discount religion altogether.

But I thought if science fact checks religions, then isn't it proving it wrong and or right? I feel that many scientist come to the conclusion that religion is not real through science meaning they can't intertwine peacefully. Unless you believe most religious people can accept someone disproving their god or scientist accepting no prove for religion. Isn't that how athesim came about?

They're not on opposite sides at all. Science is simply a process by which we come to know things. Religion is simply the belief in and worship of a supernatural entity, especially a personal one. Science makes no claim about whether or not there is a God.

Religious texts however, make certain claims about the nature of our reality which may come to be proven wrong by science. The creation myths for example are all wrong. We know about evolution now. The flood myths are wrong (we know there was no global flood), etc.... So it's not so much that science and religion are on opposite sides, it's just that science happens to fact check the claims made by religion at times.

Please, point out what is wrong with their argument if you really have a reason to believe they are wrong.

I don't see how this is possible. Aren't they opposing each other?

Religion is not science! Saying god did it is a total copout! How could anyone actually think this?! As I see it right now there are more agrees than disagrees for this argument which frightens me. The amount of people who think religion can answer questions science can't is absurd! Science is facts, evidence, and understanding each step before taking a new one. Religion is simply sticking to one belief and ignoring the evidence.

Science needs to be science. It's a process that allows us to come to know things. It shouldn't compromise or conform to anything as doing so would compromise the integrity of the process and therefore limit it's utility.

they really don't. they are to a great degree mutually exclusive. science is slowly disproving religion.
