You mentionned my name, and therefore I have to answer.
First of all, please, give me links to where I am anti-spiritual in the Spiritual Forum, and we take it from there. I'm sure that there are plenty so you will not have any problem finding them. Else I will take it as a general accusation from you, and this wasn't what you intended, was it?
I don't think I am anti-spiritual in my thinking. I think physics in general with evolution, particle-physics, BigBang is remarkable creations of god (if he exists). By denying evolution, you deny one of gods greatest creation, and therefore god himself. I find this horrible.
I see too many fundamentalistic christians who set themselves over science. They think that if science doesn't confirm the genisis, then the science is wrong. However, if it confirms events in the bible, then the science is right. The bible is by them is the Truth in the smallest letter. They demand extensive proofs from science, that they discard anyway, but give no proofs that holds from their own view.
I say that god created a set of laws of physics. In these laws you get a glimps of god himself. For me, physicists are more priest and know more about god than the pope himself, because they know the essence of god!
But I'm not christian (more than in tradition. I'm brought up as a christian and in my teenage I saw all the paradoxes of the bible and the words of all priests who thought they have all the answers but really didn't know much.), but I have a difficult time when I see the glory and beauty of the laws of physics, which made it possible to form galaxies, stars, planetary systems like ours, a planet with the ingrediences and properties to produce life, and with the aid of evolution gave lifeless matter a body and later intelligence, and this denyes christian fundamentalists...
So when I see lies about Science, masked in spiritual wordings in the Science Forum, I react.
When people trying to preach their fundamentalist views in science in order to turn our evil science to what they think is spiritually right, then I react.
And they, the fundamentalists think they have the right to invade the Science Forum with clearly spiritual matters, clear anti-science matters, then I react.
Do I do the same thing in the Spiritual Forum? I don't think so. So please, give me some links, and I defend them if I think you are wrong, and excuse them for those where you're right.
