I was going to make a black joke, because everyone else is going to do it anyway

But I can't really come up with anything

So my joke is going to be nonexistant
like a black father

Metaphysics would be more like looking for a black cat in a dark room by figuring out how the room would look if you could see, and then searching the most likely places.

Theology would be saying "I know there is a cat here somewhere, and these are the things I perceive that point that out to me - I don't need to find the cat to know it is here."

Science would be groping in said likely places and making a mental tally of "here" or "not here." for future reference of finding cats.

In order for analogies to be actual analogies they need to keep all variables the same save the manipulated one (the belief system in this case). Adding that there is a flashlight ruins said analogy.

Also, science, metaphysics, and theology are all branches of philosophy, so there is technically philosophy answers the with the other three rather than by itself.

'Science is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat using a flashlight.'

Without a comma this has a totally different meaning

Cats can't use flashlights

mfw reading this. Philosophy is science and nobody gets it.

Philosophy is not all about smoking pot and sitting in drum circles. You gotta go to class SOMEtimes...

I went to a lecture yesterday titled "philosophy and quantum physics" and the philosophers understood the **** out of the lecture and the scientists didn't.

OPINION ALERT
Religion: Looking diligently for a black cat in a dark room. You hear it somewhere, you're pretty sure it's there.
Atheism: Looking for a black cat in a dark room for a few seconds, than giving up completely.

Well... no. Philosophy would be looking for a black cat by applying rigorous logic to the situation, to reach a conclusion based on long analysis and consideration. Science is the same, but with a focus on saying 'well typically in the past we have found black cats have a tendency to [...]' and trying the same to add to a growing body of data.

You guys bring religion into too many things.......then you wonder why you get trolled by "religious fanatics" who are just screwing with you............

I would say for those who are educated, theology provides the belief that there is a cat in the room, and science is used to search for it. But why search if you think there is nothing there?

Science is the how, religion is the why. Anyone who believes, but does not use intelligence to do so, are the problem.
