I think that religion should be discouraged in the scientific community. And thank God, it is.
How in God's name could you POSSIBLY mix the two? These quacks who claim that religion and science can mix are idiots! Science, by nature, is based on fact, and religion, by nature, is based on faith. In order for something to be accepted in the scientific community, it must make sense, logically, mathematically, or in some other secular (in the worldly definition of the word) department.
Faith, however, is not meant to make sense. Because once faith makes sense, it is no longer faith. In order to have faith, you must first have uncertainty. The stupidity of mixing faith and science is more illogical than faith itself.
I shall forever hold the Christian scientists to be a highly suspect group. They do not belong. Nor do scientists of any faith.
I am not saying that scientists are unable to be good scientists. No, many of the world's greatest minds were religious. However, those who attempt to mix religion and science may as well be practicing Phrenology. Or perhaps changing lead into gold. The idea of mixing religion and science ought to be considered a pseudo-scientific piece of intellectual bullshit. It is the equivalent of attempting to mix oil and water. It shall never do any good.
My point being, we should disregard the so-called scientists who claim that science proves God. Better yet, we should burn them at the stake for heresy.
Despite my rather emotional word choice, my arguments are rational, hence the title.
