Can I get an Amen to that!

The thing about science is it does not change because people no longer believe it. our interpretation of it has changed as we learn more and more. Science is more the study of how things are rather how we would like them to be. Sometimes people make fun of the interpretations people have of scientific concepts and sometimes it leads to better science but never doe it destroy what science is based on because science is based on real things. Everyone believing in it does not make the things that influence science exist and likewise everyone not believing in science would not make the things that influence it disappear. But if everyone were to not believe in a god eventually people would stop talking about that god and for all purposes eventually that god would not exist.

God which we base religion off of like us are temporary facts which we try to base science off of are eternal. Eventually all evidence of what we know or believe we know will perish along with us while the evidence used to create science will remain possibly even to be picked up and understood better or worse by another life form.

I am a big fan of your work. I have watched almost all of your movies, and some of them made me laugh till I cried with tears of joy. But this time I wanted to talk to you about this au.australianwritings.com site that is bothering me and it's not just me but many other people as well.
