I thought this post was worthy of bringing a classic back from the archives:
However, I had trouble adding the picture by itself so the link will get you to the narrative as well.

Note: that article was intended as pure satire, from a comical site, but I figured you all could enjoy a good laugh.
Science is not really a form of devil worship, it is more of group of methods for solving a particular kind of problem. Science is not just a list of facts or theories, it is a way to understand the natural world by observing, experimenting, and then attempting to find cause and effect relationships. Scientists long to understand more than what we already know about this complex and intricately connected world we live in. A good scientist knows we have few of the answers, and then sets out to at least try to ask the right questions so that we can learn more about how things work, and how this wildly diverse world fits together.
Through the ages, many people have denied certain facts of nature because those facts did not fit into the belief system that they desired to hold to. Both Christians and atheists are commonly guilty of this error. It should be obvious that any Christian who believes that God is the ordainer and framer of this world, and that God is the initiator of all logic and scientific thought, should never take such a position. If you believe that God created the world we live in, then why not be interested in exploring it? If you don't, its still an excellent profession.
Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue. I added, We have all been both!
