The intent of this blog is to promote human equality, human progress, human peace and justice, and optimism. To accomplish this, to encourage the discussion of ideas after identifying and discovering problems, and then creating positive solutions for "we the people," in order to provide for the "general welfare" and "domestic tranquility" of America now and its "posterity" into the future. To encourage an emphasis on separation of religion and state for all, no matter if this is for those "of faith" in a Maker / Creator (Deists, God-loving people, Christians, various people of spirituality) and atheists or agnostics.

Religion into Science?

Dear Editors:

One problem with religion and creationism becoming a science.  Those who do so think they are god with divine rights to shoot anyone who disagrees.  From the time of the Roman Catholics executing Huguenots, Jews, and Cathars, to the 20th Century fascist attitudes of Hitler, Mussolini, and others, we have witnessed such events from those who think they are god. Even the Romans did so, thinking that men were gods.  And the communists?  Thinking that “religion” was atheism and making humans divine because of the belief there is no god. 

In more recent years, what about those who are vigilante mobs, validated by some religious beliefs, thinking they can lynch people of color?  Or what about people who believe they should act like “god” and kill abortion doctors or gay folk, in the name of some god – a god of evil and vicious attitudes. 

Religion and science can coexist.  There are many beliefs, from creationism to intelligent design, and so forth.  No one should force their own belief upon others because we live in a nation with freedom of religion and religious beliefs.  Such freedoms and a secular nation with various religious beliefs has made this nation great.
