God is not real. Religion is superstition. Science is the only truth and science knows it can be wrong and will change with new information. Religion resists any change or contradiction. Imagine if barbers still did blood letting to drain the sickness out. That is religion. Old outdated information. Let it go.

>Science is the only truth

Incorrect. Science is a methodology, and is only usable for determining a subset of reality within the purview of those methods.

Everything you just said is just an assertion or a platitude. Isn't that exactly opposite of the atheist worldview claim of rationalism?

>Religion resists any change or contradiction.

The doctrine of the Bible being the word of God and unchanging is probably my primary disagreement with the average Christian.

>Kant asks whether a religious synod or presbytery should be entitled to “commit itself by oath to a certain unalterable set of doctrines.” He answers that a contract like this prevents “all further enlightenment of mankind forever.” It is impossible and immoral that the people of one generation could restrict the thoughts of the next generation, to prevent the extension and correction of previous knowledge, and stop all future progress. Based on this, later generations are not bound by the oaths of preceding generations. With freedom, each citizen, especially the clergy, could provide public comment until public insight and public opinion changes the religious institution. But Kant says that it is impossible to agree, “even for a single lifetime,” to a permanent religious constitution that doesn't allow public comment and criticism. If one were to renounce enlightenment for later generations, one would be trampling on the “sacred rights of mankind.” Neither an individual citizen nor a monarch has the right to constrict historical development.

>Kant further explains why he has been emphasizing the religious aspect, religious immaturity, "is the most pernicious and dishonourable variety of all.” If Enlightenment is man's emergence from his ‘self-incurred immaturity' and the guiding forces of society, then simply put: the church is a political force which constrains public behaviour through the use of doctrine. By defining doctrines and making them politically binding, the Church can control the growth of reason, therefore, publicly it is in your own self-interest not to assent to a set of beliefs that hinder the development of your reason. It is in man's interest to surpass those that prevent him from using his own reason.

Religion is the mere vessel that carries a theist from reality into a world of delusion.

Science is measurement. Compartmentalized measurement. If you zoomed out a little bit, expanded your view, you might realize scientists spend their whole lives measuring God's Creation. Am I the only one who finds God hilarious?

If you don't believe in absolute truth, how can you trust the scientific method? Aren't 50% of studies BS?

This book dismantles your worldview in the 1st 20 pages. Far more eloquently than I can.

>“Everything in this life passes away — only God remains, only He is worth struggling towards. We have a choice: to follow the way of this world, of the society that surrounds us, and thereby find ourselves outside of God; or to choose the way of life, to choose God Who calls us and for Whom our heart is searching.”

>“What, more realistically, is this “mutation,” the “new man”? He is the rootless man, discontinuous with a past that Nihilism has destroyed, the raw material of every demagogue’s dream; the “free-thinker” and skeptic, closed only to the truth but “open” to each new intellectual fashion because he himself has no intellectual foundation; the “seeker” after some “new revelation,” ready to believe anything new because true faith has been annihilated in him; the planner and experimenter, worshipping “fact” because he has abandoned truth, seeing the world as a vast laboratory in which he is free to determine what is “possible”; the autonomous man, pretending to the humility of only asking his “rights,” yet full of the pride that expects everything to be given him in a world where nothing is authoritatively forbidden; the man of the moment, without conscience or values and thus at the mercy of the strongest “stimulus”; the “rebel,” hating all restraint and authority because he himself is his own and only god; the “mass man,” this new barbarian, thoroughly “reduced” and “simplified” and capable of only the most elementary ideas, yet scornful of anyone who presumes to point out the higher things or the real complexity of life.”

Science is the lowest rung of truth, rational philosophy is above it, then theology, then God himself.
