    Because it is easy to fool people with things that seem logical to man's feeble mind. Man can't take it that he can't explain everything so if he can't he says it can't be true. Science is fact based on MAN'S interpretation only. The last time I saw a human being create an entire universe was......well.......never! That's why every time man challenges God to a match in knowledge, man comes away empty. Always has, always will. If you think humans can explain away everything that God created, then science has fooled you too.

    This is a quote that says it exactly thee way I think about this whole thing:

    Moralists merely wail, but science gives us answers

    By Minnette Minette Marrin

    Comment — Sunday, January 9

    Scientists, increasingly, have become our public intellectuals, to whom we look for explanations and solutions. These may be partial and imperfect, but they are more satisfactory than the alternatives.

    So here is what I believe, without being able to prove it. If there are any answers to life's greatest questions, or if there are other questions that we should be asking instead, it is science that will provide them.

    Why Christians have a problem with science? We Muslims know that science complements religion. There are three sources for the truth that you can't realize with your senses: 1. A book of God

    2. A messenger of God 3. Science. For us the more science advances the more we believe in the Koran. Cause it has scientific facts in it. We know what was there before the big bang, can you imagine? See for yourself.

    DOES THE QUR’AN CONTAIN EVERYTHING?

    Being a Book describing man and the universe, the Quran contains ‘everything’. It declares:

    With Him are the keys of the Unseen. None but He knows them. And He knows what is in the land and the sea. Not a leaf falls but with His Knowledge, not a grain amid the darkness of the earth, nothing of wet or dry but (it is noted) in a Manifest Book. (al-An‘am, 6.59)

    Ibn Mas‘ud says that the Quran provides information on everything but we may not be able to see everything in it. Ibn ‘Abbas, known as the Interpreter of the Quran and the Scholar of the Ummah, asserts that if he loses the rein of his camel, he can find it by means of the Quran. Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti, a significant scholar who lived in Egypt in the 15th century, explains that all sciences or branches of knowledge are to be found in the Quran.

    you actually answered your own question. and that answer is "faith". Without concrete fact, many of us refuse to believe in something. Science can offer fact and we hold on to what we believe to be true. For someone to "take a leap of faith" involves a belief in something that takes a great deal of time and devotion to understanding. Many folks are just too busy in todays society to take on this commitment.

    I don't see why they must rival. Even the brightest scientists admit to creating more complex puzzles every time they resolve a question.

    The sub-atomic world is the area where these subject may merge. It's looking pretty interesting, that's for sure.

    Because they provide objective and verifiable evidence of anything they claim. Sometimes, you can even repeat the experience and come to the same conclusion.

    I wish that it were. It should be, because so much can be proven. But, the bag of stones that is the 'mind' of most American Christians muddles everything and impedes dissemination of the truth.

    It's inevitable, as a occultist and a theosophist, I have seen it coming, but it is nothing new. Just now, being examined and taken seriously, especially by our government.
