Niceathiest, if you really are an athiest I hope you can forgive the ignorance that some of my fellow religious show. To be sure it is of no religious requirement for people of faith to have correct scientific views so I try not to judge too harshly. However, it is a discouragement that many deniers of scientifically proven phenomenon are of the faith. My personal explanation is that perhaps sometimes when you live by faith you get used to approaching problems in a way similar to how you practice your faith. Meaning they are looking for something to believe in, not to acertain the scientific truth.
Again, such is not heretical to the faith yes, but it can be dangerous to others, such as the many deaths caused by anti-vacciners. I do not know how to bridge this gap between faith and science NiceAthiest, but I am tempted to say a refusal to listen to sounds logic/science is a possible sign of a illformed faith?
