Athiests, Is your trust in science based on faith or based on science?
athiests, Is your trust in science based on faith or based on science?
First of all, being an atheist does not necessitate a 'trust in science'.
Speaking as one of those atheists that does 'trust in science' I can only give you my 'view'.
Science is what makes sense, If I can't say "well why does x happen" or "how does x happen" about something then I have no reason to not believe it is true.
Therefore, my, and other atheists' trust in science is based on logic and basic human understanding.
I simply demand to know details, specifics and reasoning before I change the way I live.
I do not base any of my decisions on 'faith' because 'faith' is "complete trust or confidence in someone or something."
Science is not about trust, it is about fact.
Atheist or religious, anyone can do science because the basis of all science is evidence. How do you know something is what it seems?
Many religious people are in fact scientists and their religion has little to do with their research.
Of course for me, that begs the questions of why they do not use the same scientific scrutiny on their own religion but that's besides the point. Anyone can be a scientist atheist or religious.
The bottom line is: SCIENCE WORKS. It has solved many problems with disease and created all the technology you see around us from telephones to computer. Science is the study of the natural world. That's the bottom line.
just because i'm an atheist doesn't mean i trust science. i'm an atheist because god doesn't exist , not because science says he doesn't.
