fighting over religion is like fighting over who has the better imaginary friend.

religion is a story to fill the void of what modern science can not explane or expane well, no matter how logical a dispute is its "wrong" in the eyes of the church

Or maybe... some people actually think God exist. I don't consider him to fill any "voids" for me.

Now thats a theory that God really does exist .....and I'll even go a step further to say some of those that belive in Him aren't ignorant and may be just as enlightened as those that dont believe in a Deity. I need religion because science cant answer the questions I have in my soul.

I don't think you typed what you meant. And if you meant to type that I demand to see proof.

Because we, as beings, believe everything is an object. As you know, objects need creators. We cannot explain or come up with a valid creator for the object known as life, so we make stuff up. Once we get over trying to turn everything into a physical object, maybe we can move on.

..if that makes sense.

perhaps you are confusing explanation with proof?

Why do you have to disprove something that isn't observable.

1. Didn't act like I knew you, the post contained nothing personal.

2. Science is by no means complete in its knowledge of the human condition. There is still work to be done and advances to be made. That is all I was implying. Your post implied that science's current knowledge is the end all be all of what it's ever going to know. So, your post was in fact incorrect. Science does not have holes so much as areas which need further study and testing.

I said "When science can disprove the existence of a soul, or God for that matter then my post will be "fixed" until then it stands as is".
Never said that it wouldn't, just that it hasn't.

Science can't disprove the existence of unicorns, leprechauns or the tooth fairy either, so I'd be justified in firmly holding onto my belief in them too, right? It doesn't work that way, there's no way to prove absolutely that anything doesn't exist. Science is based on evidence, you can find evidence that things exist, you can't find evidence that proves something doesn't exist. When there's no tangible, credible, or repeatable proof that something exists, science is forced to assume that it doesn't exist, but it can't be proven absolutely.

Lol.... Anyway my point is this: Science and religion( or just the belief in a higher power) each has a place in the world. You and your next door neighbour may have a different opinion on which is right, or holds more truth but to each his own.
