Why do religious people embrace science in medicine and reject science when it comes to reality?
We don't reject science. This is a misconception about Christianity. That being said, I can only speak for Catholicism. Not for any other sect.
If you do not reject science, then why do you still believe in creationism?
As far as I can see the "humans" of 2 million years ago were not really humans, but rather smart animals. I asked myself, what makes us human? And the answer to that was: our soul. So I believe that we became humans when we were given a soul by God.
Self awareness separates us from other animals, so does the belief that there is a God. I doubt that animals believe in God.
Well that's your opinion. I was just stating mine and the Church's.
There's a Muslim proverb - trust in Allah, but tie up your camel.
So do pray for healing and health, but still see the doctor for antibiotics.
I might not believe in the Theory of Evolution or the Big Bang Theory but that does not mean that I reject science.
Your first premise is false. Religious people do not blindly accept all science, because science is inherently faulty, thus their need to use inductive logic, and why they are constantly changing their theories.
And evolutionary science is littered with politically correct liberals, who will lie to you, because they will lose their job and be ridiculed by their peers if they tell the truth on how they really feel. There are many examples of this
"Only the most simple-minded and philosophically naive scientist, of whom there are many, thinks that science is characterized entirely by hard inference and mathematical proofs based on indisputable data.” Evolutionary biologist Richard Lewontin
“If you thought that science was certain - well, that is just an error on your part.” Physicist Richard P. Feynman
"Science is the belief in the ignorance of the experts" Physicist Richard P. Feynman
"No myth deserves a more emphatic death than the idea that science is an inherently impartial and objective enterprise." Paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould
"Paleontologists (and evolutionary biologists in general) are famous for their facility in devising plausible stories; but they often forget that plausible stories need not be true." Paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould
"Science is the horse that pulls the cart of philosophy" Atheist physicist Leonard Susskind
Also, the modern theory of evolution has completely fallen apart, and the general public is totally unaware of it
The Origin at 150: is a new evolutionary synthesis in sight?
"The edifice of the Modern Synthesis has crumbled, apparently, beyond repair...The summary of the state of affairs on the 150th anniversary of the Origin is somewhat shocking: in the post-genomic era, all major tenets of the Modern Synthesis are, if not outright overturned, replaced by a new and incomparably more complex vision of the key aspects of evolution. So, not to mince words, the Modern Synthesis is gone." Eugene V. Koonin
I could inundate you with quotes from evolutionary science that proves the theory of evolution is in shambles. This was the reason for the secret "Altenberg 16 meeting"

Does what you believe indicate how intelligent you are?Are atheists logical and reasoned and religious people imbeciles? Are conservatives insipid dolts and liberals enlightened pragmatists? Is the barista with a masters degree in medieval literature more intelligent that the ASE certified auto...

Religious people in medical professions - how do you balance belief and science?I'm a health professional, and a colleague recently (in conversation) stated that they believed in Creation and not evolution. Now, this has me stumped, as our profession involves almost all science, proven facts and a...

I believe that so many children would grow up smarter and having a better intillecual veiw on the world if society didn't shove religion down their throtes. There are many good religious people who are smart, but if someone doesn't want to believe then it should be their choice. This whole...

Is it possible to truly be religious as well as believe in the evidence of science with theories such as evolution, the Big Bang and dinosaurs existing prior to man not along side? (Please keep it clean and civil guys, thank you.)

Why do you think people still argue again evolution?Seriously. This is the 21st century. I'm thinking they're in denial because it's against their religion - or they're just ignorant. What do you think?
