While science is very good at analyzing and testing observable data, it cannot help us transcend the natural world or answer the deeper existential questions that also must be answered. It cannot answer why science, and why there’s even such a thing as the natural world. These are philosophical questions.
It is a bold claim indeed to state that religion answers the questions science cannot. And in this particular case we are talking about Christianity.
Must be answered? Really?
I for one have no real interest in the why aspect of such existential questions, but rather the how?
I do not sit and contemplate my dinner and wonder: Oh, why do I love mashed potato and carrots so much?
Neither do I pause mid-embrace to wonder why it feels so good when my wife kisses me or one of the children hugs me.
Or why I laugh when Bobbi cocks her head when I use the term “Walkies!” anywhere within hearing range.
Neither do I fall into a numbing funk because against all things normal I enjoy listening to AC/DC and the Sex Pistols.
So it is a little baffling how any Christian can make such an arrogant claim when the source they rely on, the bible is corrupt?
Are they completely unaware of how blatantly fallacious such a claim is and one that every adherent of every other religion will likely claim as well?
Ultimately, such a claim has no legs whatsoever and until they can face the truth that their source is so obviously and damnably flawed they have no argument either.
However, it does tend to add credence to the term Liars for Jesus.
