Jeff Johnston Posted over 1 year ago Should Science be Considered a Religion? Although I have been a Christian all my life I find that I agree to your perspective on almost all accounts. There is simply too little evidence to prove the existence of a "supreme being". But I find it hard to live with myself when I'm subjected to a life without a grand creator. Perhaps it is because of my Christian Cultural Paradigm, but I find an Atheistic viewpoint to be too similar to pessimism. So I chose at a young age to be optimistic and believe in God regardless of the lack of reason. Since then I have had some rather amazing spiritual experiences that make it easier to return to an optimistic stand point. I still have never found a way to prove my experiences are completely real. They may very well be self-induced revelation, but I can't let myself chose to accept that. My gut tells me to well that I didn't have a minor laps of "crazy". This is why I choose to believe in God. To bring things back to conversation topic. I believe that religion is simply something that helps you choose to be better. Though science in general doesn't provide my "drive" for me to be good. I gain a lot of my ambition due to the things I've learned in psychology and sociology. I don't see a point in making a church out of it. But you can be religious in improving yourself and those around you from the things you learn through science. So long as a group of people are trying to improve the world rather than destroy it - I will respect them in whatever form or organization they decide to call themselves.
