The reason why this post is stupid is because it misrepresents what science is. Science isn't hiding from something you think is false, it's analyzing it and finding out the truth if possible, then making connections to other knowledge if unable. You portray the man hiding under science, which is the exact OPPOSITE of what he should be doing. He should be facing it head on, with his head open and three other flows going into it.

I think what the picture is saying is that religion has been passed down through the generations but science is blocking these beliefs in favor of more logical conclusions.

You need not worry about religion my friend. There are assholes with religion and assholes without religion. They both know their choices.

The point of this post isn't that religion is bad, it's that the older generation tries to stop the progression of science, by keeping their children's minds narrow. Teaching that it's okay to never question anything.

Since when did science become synonymous with anti-religious? It's about bad ideas or habits being passed down through generations, but that the current generation has something the previous generations didn't to shield itself (which is actually the Internet).

Faith isn't always about taking everything blindly and not questioning out of fear of consequence.

Dictionary definitions notwithstanding, allow me to use my own religion as an example.

Judaism (inb4 byposted) holds the exact opposite view that you should just follow everything blindly. Judaism encourages people to question the things they're told and to form their own beliefs. If those beliefs end in "I don't believe in God," then so be it. You won't find any Rabbis beating people over the head with a Torah. Amongst us, the Rabbis teach, the people listen, and then everyone comes up with their own ideas.

When I said "Judaism encourages..." I meant the Rabbis are the ones encouraging this idea. Clergymen aren't exactly "followers."

Fortunately, you don't have to choose, as that would leave you mentally disabled. To think one can choose to only believe what is proven by rigorous scientific processes is naive. You would have remarkably little knowledge, below that of a retard. Fortunately, whether you are aware of it or not, most of your important beliefs are based on faith as it would be next to impossible to prove them scientifically. Such as the strange belief that there is no god.

This is something I typed on here before so I'm going to be lazy this time and just paste it again because it's relevant.   
   
"Science doesn't try to disprove God or Religion. People futilely attempt to do this and use Science as the tool. Then Science ends up getting blamed, when the true culprit is the person. The relationships between War and Religion tend to share a similar problem. "All Wars are started by some Religion! They should all be abolished!". This may appear correct at first glance, but it's deeper than that. Ignorance (intolerance, nonacceptance, and many other words fall under this type of "Ignorance") is what actually causes most, if not all, War. To put it simply, "You don't hold my opinion on _______, so I'm going to kill you."    
   
Back to the main point though. Science and Religion are both tools with distinct 'properties' that can be used differently. Science is more concrete, while Religion is more interpretive. This allows for some flexibility, because you can use them together in many different ways. Without making this a 7 page paper, though, I'll just give one example that I believe clears up what I mean.    
   
Love is essentially just a series of Biochemical interactions between two people, with a dash of Psychology/Sociology.    
Does knowing that make love any less 'magical' or 'special' though?    
   
One Scientist might say "Yes, this is how it works and it shows our interactions to be nothing more than complex Chemistry."    
   
The second Scientist might say "No, understanding how it works doesn't make it any less valid. Our concept of love still exists, but now we know how it works."    
   
Now, which one is correct?    
Big finish.. It's ultimately just a matter of opinion."

This has been posted too many times in the past few days. Is it that hard to shut up about someones religion/beliefs? Is it that hard to understand that everyone wants to better themselves but dickheads like you force people to get into meaningless arguments over the internet, and that betters no one

the old men all have a bible with a cross beneath it in their hands. It's supposed to symbolize religion being spewed to each successive generation. Read the comments sometimes if you don't know what the post is about.
