D'Anna Biers wrote:There's no such thing as coincidence. God wills the universe according to His design.


Gaius Baltar wrote:I'm a scientist. And as a scientist, I believe if God exists our knowledge of him is imperfect. Why? Because the stories and myths we have are the products of men, the passage of time. The religion you practise is based on a theory, impossible to prove, yet you bestow it with absolutes like 'there is no such thing as coincidence'.


D'Anna Biers wrote:It's called faith.


Gaius Baltar wrote:But the truth is, if we knew God's will, we'd all be gods, wouldn't we? .

I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.
