  • Yes, but not spirituality.
  • Yeah, it is. Much more important to me. Religion , to me, is a personal thing, and it doesnt matter to me what you believe, or what others believe. I dont understand why people waste their time trying to convert, and preach, and whatnot. Are they going to wait for me and you at the gates...Science, on the other hand, is something that can be proven, and agreed upon, right now, and tomorrow, not when we die... If we die...
  • No. My faith in Christ is all important. Science will eventually fall into line. It is a new thing in the history of humanity, and there is still a lot that scientists don't know and may be misinterpreting as a result.
  • Science and spirituality, not religion. Religion has been important to me only in my research to help me in my writing against it.
  • Yes. I love science and hate all 'religions'.
  • hell yeah
  • I find that science is more important to me but you sometimes have to look at both in a broader spectrum. Both are NOT the truth. Science is a closer approximation to the truth of how the universe functions while religion has its own explanations for how it was made. Neither are the exact truth, both are merely approximations based on subjective opinions. Though science is considered objective a lot of scientists leave out parts of the truth to make their discoveries seem more amazing, while religion was the cause of hundreds of millions of deaths throughout history but thats not what its all about.
  • Yes. Knowledge over superstition any day.
  • Religion is a fairy tale.
  • Science is extremely important to me. I will choose knowledge over ignorance any day.
  • Of course, because religion is a joke and science is the basis for facts.
  • I think that they are synonymous!
  • Science is my Religion.
  • Shit yeah. Science is everything and religion is nothing. Religions should be abolished.
  • yes way more important. do christians really expect me and other people to believe in a guy who could turn water into wine, who could cure people with his hands, a guy who could walk on water, well they shouldn't because to be fair it doesn't sound farily convingcing. For all we know it could be some huge cover up of something or he might not even exist. science is huge. science is behind technology. medicine etc.
  • GOD yes
  • Science is proof that God hates religious people!
  • Science is in perfect harmony with the Bible and Christianity. All religions do not go along strictly with the Bible, even ones that call themselves Christian. The questions about the Origin of Life is not science question, it is a history question. I believe God's words over the conjecture of man.
  • Science is an important thing to mankind in aiding us, as a people to begin to understand many of God's mysteries, but it's nowhere near as important to me as my spirituality and a mulititude of other things to boot -- including my religion which is synonymous with the many people who incorporate it. They are all very dear to me.
  • Science is more important than religion period. How many diseases has religion cured? Science cured polio. And Smallpox. I could name hundreds of others, but those will do. Science gave us the car. It gave us the light bulb, the motion picture, music, the airplane, telephones, space travel, personal computers and solar power. It's pumped water into homes and allowed us to harness electricity, giving us a better quality of life than any generation before us. It's given us eyeglasses and hearing aids. Organ transplants and cancer treatments. Science has made the world smaller, allowing us to talk to people all over the planet in real time. What has religion done compared to that? Aside from being one more way to divide people into little boxes and creating countless acts of conflict and violence over the millenia?
  • For the most part, it is.
  • Needless to say , Science is my philosophy , my religion and also my god.
  • science is a part of religion too-my religion give science too.5
  • I can't compare......don't take religion serious after all!!!!
  • I embrace no religion or dogma of any kind, so for me is not a question of which one is "more important". Science can give me more sounded and coherent answers to many of my questions and concerns whereas religion seems unable to.
  • Science is everything, if to anybody it's not then put away your cell phone, start walking and stop using your car. Don't watch cable or any TV and get off your PC because without science you would not have any of those things. Having those things and the fact that they work proves science is everything. For those who don't see that nor understand it, well god bless ya. For those who would say well it's all god's will that these things work, I say there is no hope for you.
  • Good god YES! . Religion is a bunch of stories, myths, and fables. . Science answers real life questions and is what gives us things like cures to some illnesses, a deeper sense of awe of the universe, airplanes, computers.... . +5
  • Science is clearly more important. Science provides evolution, religion provides creationism. Science provides psychological evalution such as if a man is angry he has bipolar, religion says they are possessed by the devil! Seriously religion goes against science at every turn and attempts time and time again to bring us back to the bronze age. Science provides medicine, knowledge (which is something the chruch tries to keep confidental because if the worshippers know then they will get wise and leave the church.) Religion provides blind faith.
  • No, I personally believe in it the other way around.
  • Anything that can be prooved and backed-up by evidence, like science, I cherish. Anything that proposes concepts and tries to install beliefs, with no evidence of them whatsoever,like religion, I despise.
  • I take masturbation more seriously than religion. Yes, science is more important.....
  • I worship God, but I dont follow any specific religion and God is more important to me than science is because I dont worship science, but that doesnt mean that I feel science is unimportant or in contrast to my beliefs. I feel people on both sides have ignorantly made such a divide between science and religion when there really doesnt have to be one. I dont find them to be mutually exclusive at all.
  • Neither science or religion is more important than the other to me but being a disciple of Jesus Christ is. With that being said, if I had to make a choice between science and religion, I would choose religion.
  • Neither one because most of the time they both don't know WTF they are talking about.
  • I believe God made the world more complex than we have even come close to imagining much less understanding, so my answer is both equaly.
  • God gave us the universe, the planet, a soul, a life. Science gave me a computer, and even there I'm still not convinced the Grays didn't have something to do with it. ;) ;)
  • Science is based on fact so I take science over religion any day.
  • YES! 100,000,000,000 to 1
  • Science is the search of facts. Religeon is ignoring facts.
  • Yup , i ve lived in SeouL for about 18 years.
  • Science hands down. Religion is a myth.
  • Why oh why can't people just learn to embrace everything? Like that Rael dude. But srsly folks. Oh, and science. If I was dying of death cancer, I would rather trust medical science instead of wasting all my time praying for God to save me, and not get any treatment in the meanwhile.
  • Science is more important to me, I like to have definitive proof in my life.
  • I put science over religion, as I place religion nowhere in my life. As George Carlin stated, "Religion is bullshit." But I do not place science over my faith in God. ...now shoot me down.
  • No. God comes first, then my loved ones and my fellow human beings, and then Science's discovery of God's Creation. The Catholic Church has sponsored and supported science in the discovery of God's creation for hundreds of years. One example of this sponsorhsip and support is the Pontifical Academy of Sciences. The Academy and its membership are not influenced by national, political, or religious factors and represent a valuable source of objective scientific information which is made available to the international scientific community. Today the work of the Academy covers six main areas: + Fundamental science + The science and technology of global questions and issues + Science in favor of the problems of the Third World + The ethics and politics of science + Bioethics + Epistemology And nine sub-areas: + Physics + Astronomy + Chemistry + Earth and environmental sciences + Life sciences (botany, agronomy, zoology, genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, the neurosciences, surgery) + Mathematics + Applied sciences + The philosophy and history of sciences http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/pontifical_academies/acdscien/400_ann/storia_en_qxd.pdf Another example is the theory of Evolution: Catholics can believe in the theories of the big bang or evolution or both or neither. On August 12, 1950 Pope Pius XII said in his encyclical Humani generis: The Teaching Authority of the Church does not forbid that, in conformity with the present state of human sciences and sacred theology, research and discussions, on the part of men experienced in both fields, take place with regard to the doctrine of evolution, in as far as it inquires into the origin of the human body as coming from pre-existent and living matter - for the Catholic faith obliges us to hold that souls are immediately created by God. Here is the complete encyclical: http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/pius_xii/encyclicals/documents/hf_p-xii_enc_12081950_humani-generis_en.html And here is the Address of Pope John Paul II to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences on October 22, 1996 speaking of the Theory of Evolution: http://www.newadvent.org/library/docs_jp02tc.htm At this time, the theories of the big bang and evolution are the most logical scientific explanations. However tomorrow someone may come up with better ideas. As long as we believe that God started the whole thing, both the Bible and responsible modern science can live in harmony. I suggest you read the book "How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization" by Thomas E. Woods, Jr. http://www.catholiceducation.org/articles/history/world/wh0101.html With love in Christ.
  • I'll always prefer the hard facts of science. And it doesn't worry me that science hasn't figured everything out. I've no personal need to fill gaps in knowledge with superstitious nonsense.
  • Depends. If I want war, persecution, close mindedness, intolerance, and superstition to rule my life then Religion. If I want knowledge, freedom of choice, advancement of the human race, and a future then I have to go with Science.
  • NO..not even close....Justme:)
  • For a science test, yeah. But in life faith is like a guide, science is like pavement to walk on. I would choose religion, but different people have different point of views.
  • no, science means nothing to me.
  • Maybe not pure "natural science", but the quest for knowledge is more important than religion. This includes applied science and the social sciences.
  • No, God is the center of my life and everything I do.
  • Science is much more "interesting" than religion, and at my job certainly is more important. Other than to make a humerus remark, religion has no use for me.
  • God is more important to me...HE is my Science.....Naturalist, Evolutionist, Creationist.... religion is man made....Faith is between me and the Almighty....
  • They both have their own spheres of authority. I think they mesh quite well. The only thing that doesn't mix well with religion is the worldview of many scientists, namely, methodological naturalism (which isn't actually science, but a gratuitous philosophical assumption that can't be demonstrated by science).
  • I like science, but God Is more Important to me... I would not trade my belief for anything +)
  • Science is simply one area of study OF religion. God made everything and the more you delve into science, the more you'll realize that it could never have happened by chance - the order, the majesty, the beauty of it all, the symetry within each field....it's the work of a Creative, Intelligent, Loving, Majestic, Orderly, Divine Deity. Einstein said that the more he studied mathematics, the more he believed in God.
  • I can work with facts but not ideas
  • Both are equally important to me. Science for understanding the universe, and religion for connecting to it and communing with it.
  • Yes. Science have given more to man then religion ever will. Nothing have improved the quality of life for man more then science.
  • Speaking as a Christian, science, has done much good for the world but it won't save mankind. Religion, as the term is used today is a very generic term and could mean most anything. Personally, I have to say that my belief in God and my salvation experience far exceeds science in terms of importance. Science and Salvation in Jesus Christ aren't even in the same galaxy.
  • Yes, science is more important in my life than religion.
  • Science created the computer. Religion gave me guilt.
  • Well I think both are important. Without science I wouldn't be writing this now (and a whole lot more other things that I could not do without science) and without religion... well I'm not religious but religion is a part of life for me.
