A Science Blogger

Here is a scientist that is looking into many things that cause disease- environmental light and cancer, bugs and schizophrenia and a host of other things. She does not seem to like the Intelligent Design folks very much - which is a good thing these days. I grew up in a school that taught very little science and a lot of creationism, and had a bit of a hard time adjusting to real science. Those pesky CONTROLLED experiments that you had to keep data on?? What was up with that?

Belief in God and Science should remain mutually exclusive of each other in a biology class. It seems ridiculous to posit that because life is so amazing there must be a God. What do we do when we realize that nature sends us horrible things- Well, we can call it God's Plague, as some did with Aids, I guess. But that is pretty sick.

I am sure that Pat Robertson will be trumpeting the Bird Flu as a sign of God being pissed off at us for something, when it finally hits.

Sometimes religion is just so dumb. I truly wish that people who were religious nutbars would keep their mouths shut once in a while. Science may not have all of the answers, but neither do they.

I have a question for all the anti-evolutionists out there- when the Bird Flu comes will you get the vaccination, or will you pray for protection? The vaccination is based on evolution, which if it isn't a true theory, should not work according to your position. Praying should.

My thought is you will get vaccinated- like the old saying goes "Trust in God, but tie your camel first". And you accuse those who are spiritual but not religious of cherrypicking what they want from religion. It seems to me that the same thing is being done by religious folks in regard to science.
