"Why are people overly reliant on science?"
Science explains the world around us.
Scientists try to solve some of our problems.... eg cancer.
Tell me, if you get sick do you take advantage of Modern Medicine or...
Do you still rely on the local Witch Doctor doing spells on you?
"We know it is limited"
Well of course it is - it's limited by our knowledge.
We know MUCH more now than a hundred years ago.
Scientists have developed vaccines against diseases your forebears suffered.
"we know it can't explain simple human issues like love, hate, fear, hope...."
Well it can but you wouldn't understand it...
Because GODDIDIT is NOT scientific.
"Why is there this overriding desperate need for things to fit within the realm of science?"
I didn't realise there was any desperation involved although I'm sure there are parents who would love science to solve the medical issues challenging their children.
Apparently prayer hasn't worked.
"Is the desperation to have everything explainable the cause or is it the desperation for their not to be a creator the cause."
What makes you think there's a creator of all this?
Because you don't understand and GODDIDIT is easy for the simple mind to grasp?
"anyone who tries to tell me love is a chemical reaction in the brain will be laughed off the bus)"
Because GODDIDIT, yeah?
Do you know how many people are Pointing and Larfing at you?
"Religion is backward, primitive, retarded and ignorant, and it makes people think, talk and act, backward, primitive, retarded and ignorant!"
“If energy can’t be destroyed or created, then god can't create it now can he?
If the universe requires a creator, then so too does god.
Who created god?
If god could have always existed, then so too could the universe.
Just cos you can't grasp it doesn’t mean GODDIDIT, it just means you're stupid.”
God is imaginary… http://godisimaginary.com/
