Science and religion are exact opposites. Religion is about beliefs and faith, and unquestioning adherence to doctrine. Science is about facts, open speculation, and questioning things.

I agree. Scientists conduct experiments and then look for conclusions. Zealots make conclusions then look for evidence to support them.

Like a dystopian world vision where there is no ownership of property and everyone acts like mindless zombies who are programmed to not say trigger words and refer to people by their preffered gender pronoun, and are subject to a beautiful, allmighty, honest government that will kill you if you dissent or don't like their wait in line for a month for rationed healthcare system.

Or the vision that Muslims will ignore the Quran and not try to intentionally overpower the civilizations they move into and force them into conversion.

I agree also. Religion CAN coexist with science. For years it has existed … with dwindling numbers, simply because some can't envision death as similar to before they were born. They simply MUST have something to look forward to. Eventually the numbers will drop to a few cults and then, maybe, we can stop killing each other to defend one god or another.

Science WILL eventually show where we came from, how the universe "happened", and that the concept of heaven and hell just doesn't make sense. Still, there will be those who just can't face reality. IMO, of course.

They are doing it now. Science exists. Religion exists.

Side: Bronto Is Literally Hitler

They cant. Science is true or at least seeks to be as true as possible. Religion is proudly incorrect bullshit

Just saying they are opposites doesn't mean anything. Things that are opposite can coexist. And when it comes to science, there have been many scientific things that have been disproved or revised, so the narrative of science being true is somewhat debatable. Besides science ,for the most part, has a lot of theories that can't be completely proved by it's own method. So, some people just believe without evidence. Kind of like religion. :)

Not when they are contradictory systems of belief. You can't believe in God and simultaneously not believe in God.

Are you seriously attempting to defend religion on the grounds that science is not true?

Lol. Science boasts the best record for ascertaining truth of all the systems and methodologies ever invented by mankind, and this most definitely includes religion.
