The Cosmic Vending Machine: Science & Christianity

This is an article I've been meaning to write for awhile and I think now is a good time. Lately, there has been an increasing debate regarding science & religion. Those in the scientific community look down on those whole dare to hold any sort of theistic belief while claiming to be a scientist and those in the theistic community (specifically Christianity) continue to make the claim that there is no conflict between science & Christianity. However, no traction has been gained on either side of the debate and some (like Richard Dawkins) don't believe there is a debate to be had. Shock of all shocks, I don't believe there is a debate to be had either. To be fair, Richard Dawkins believes that debating evolution with a creationist is a waste of time and yield validity to Creationism as something worth having a discussion about, that's not what I'm agreeing to and as a Creationist (in the sense that I believe God created The Earth, however I don't believe the Earth is 6,000 years old and quite frankly, I don't care how old it is) I disagree with Marco Evolution (which is the dominate form of Evolution most Evolutionists hold to).

I think the problem between science & Christianity is the fact that I think both camps are talking past each other. The expression "talking past each other" and for some reason or another fail to solidify what we're talking about and worst yet, how to talk about it. I'm not saying I have a solution to this problem but I think I'm pretty close and I think in this post I can bridge the apparent gap between science & Christianity once and for all. It's been said that those who hold to some theistic belief can't be scientists and that the two are incompatible with each other. Not only am I going to prove that notion completely false, but I'm going to explain why Christianity aides in the scientific process. So get your thinking caps on and let's dive in.

No, I Really Don't Think You Understand

"God created us sick and commands us to be well." - Christopher Hitchens (paraphrasing Fulke Greville)

Side Note: Christians, please stop saying Hitchens recanted on his death bed, it's shameless and disrespectful and while I'd would have liked nothing more than for Hitchens to see the light, he did not want to and such did not happen, PLEASE STOP LYING ABOUT IT!  Just wanted to get that off my chest, and now to the article.

Comedian Larry Wilmore MURDERED after mocking Jesus!

For those of you who don't know, last night on "The Night Show", Stephen Colbert's replacement, Larry Wilmore decided to poke fun at obesity by saying the following:

The audience sprung into a fury and assaulted Wilmore after the broadcast, he was then executed by being beheaded and a video of the execution was promptly sent to The White House, demanding that mockery of Jesus be silenced. President Obama then issued a statement shortly after saying; "The future does not belong to those who slander the Christian Messiah."...

Okay, I'll knock off the nonsense because none of your are buying this, RIGHT?! Larry Wilmore is still alive and President Obama issued no such statement (nor do I want him to issue such a statement as that is not his role). I apologize for the Click-Bait title of this article but I felt it necessary to display a very stark contrast in our society and that contrast is between the perception of Christians & the perception of Muslims. When I posted an article dealing with a similar topic I was met with amusement & mockery when one commentor laughed that I said in the article that "Christians aren't known for slaughter people in droves when we get offended." and said it was the best joke he had ever heard. Setting that aside, allow me to display MORE evidence if you're not convinced that Christians aren't the ones you should be afraid of!
