This is a major topic that bothers me..I am a catholic myself yet I still can't find the right reason to fully believe in my religion..most part of me believes in science because I know and have seen that with science there is really a proof to everything but with religion there were really no proof just words.. until now i'm still having major conflicts with those two topics.. How about you guys?having any doubts with what you believe in?

I believe in neither; science doesn't require me to believe in it to work. Physics happens whether I have faith in it or not. And the less said about religion the better.

You have to remember that religion is a creation of man. That's why it doesn't always add up. Just like all the physics of this world, everything about God does add up. If it doesn't add up, it's either man or you just do not understand God. Don't worry about scientists. They are walking toward God whether they believe or not.

The thing about science is that it is NOT the search for the truth, it is a method of thought that seeks to explain in a smiple manner the complex NATURAL world. Real science does not have anything to do with religion at all. It does not prove it or disprove it. All science does is explain things. Another thing to know about science is that good science can still be wrong. It has happened alot in the past. But the thing about science is that when it is discovered that it is wrong it can be proved beyond all doubt. As far as choosing between the two. I will keep my faith in God and Jesus and know that some times science can help me to understand His creation.

I don't think this is an either/or choice. After all, there are lots of well-known scientists who talk about how important their religion is to them and a belief in religion doesn't stop them doing their jobs. I understand your problem because they are different kinds of beliefs. With science, you can only believe when you have definite proof; with religion you just have to have faith - but of course having faith is harder because you can never really have proof.

i have an answer ? i want to one questuon's answer, what is life ? if we can answer this , we will definitly get the answer of existence of religion & science. science will find out only that; how we are living. & religion tells that; life is a gift of god, but both are unable to tell, religion came before science came in man's mind. but mind itself is creation of science , so science came first, science is limited to only real things, but religion is far away from that, becoz it is due to religion only , we have give that unknown things as word science.

I'm a catholic too, and I do believe in science more myself. I don't have any conflicts though, because the science is the "material world" and religion is the "spiritual world"
