I don't so much think it is that. I think it is that you demonstrate
"faith" in something without any hard evidence, then attack science, or
more properly, those that you think worship science. I think if you came
clean and said your belief is based on "faith" and not "reason" then the
argument would cease, no one here would challenge the concept of "faith"
as a legitimate reason for believing. I am eager to stop battling about
it myslef.
