floridaboy,
You totally missed my point.

1. Science and religion are ABSOLUTELY MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE
2. Both can find home in a human being
3. All the above mentioned scientists made their discoveries by practicing scientific methods of critical thinking and scrutiny,
practical experiments backed up by physical evidence. And that’s why we live in the world we live in.

Remember:
SCIENCE IS A WAY OF THINKING, NOT A BODY OF KNOWLEDGE!!!

Funny that you mention Kepler. If he followed religious way of thinking (accept bible at face value and don’t ask too many questions) we would have still believed that Earth was flat at the center of the Universe. (see my sig )

My point is that if we make tremendous technical and medical strides when thinking scientifically, why NOT use the same methods for the Granddaddy of all questions: Why are we here and what’s the meaning of life?

Why get the quick fix from the bible? Why NOT ask tough questions and be patient? It takes time to figure things out.
