Science Vs Religion

Science Vs Religion

The old discussion of what to believe.

For the sake of this topic, this not about deciding which one is "better", but more along the lines of which one can provide more answers.

Yes, that immediately favors one side since they won't require evidence to justify their arguments.

But let's try to answer the following instead:

Can someone be religious and scientific?

Should these two merge to become something new?

What if we did learn one day that there is a God that made everything - would that destroy science?

What if it was proven that there was no God that existed? How would religion change? (if at all?)

Uber Vs Lyft

Uber Vs Lyft
Here we have two competing services that offer the same thing, but are not available in all cities.

I have used Uber before and my driver was a college kid who sucked down Mountain Dew like crazy. He insisted that I sit up front for our 45 minute ride.

We ended up talking about sports, video games, his course he was taking at USC, and his experience during his time driving for Uber.

Some questions I had were about how he picked the time he was available, and if he had any limits to where he would take someone to.

One of his replies about where he would work is that he had many friends that lived on the coast. so, he would try to find people heading towards the same areas as his friends, then he would hang out with his friends for a while, then when he was ready to go, find someone who needed a ride close to where he lived.

That works of you are single and in school. For me personally, that would drive me nuts.

I don't know anyone who has used Lyft so I have no stories on how that service is.

Anyone reading this  - have you used either service? If so, which one, and which did you prefer?
