The conflict is when religion pushes "Just So" stories
pretending to explain why things are the way they are.
Mad Joe knows this, and is just trying to annoy - it's his
Any perceived conflict between religion and science arises in
the minds of fools like you who regard the bible as a science
As usual, the lying liar known as Mad Joe lies through his teeth.
I suppose they don't have creationists on his planet?
Or religious fanatics making ridiculous claims outside their
religion, which are refuted by science. Which is religion's
problem, not science's because the latter simply sets out to
understand and describe reality without even giving a thought to

As you have pointed out, religion is about
faith, science is about fact, and there is
nothing factual about the Bible.
Not only that, but the Bible would never stand up in a court of
law. In fact, it won't be too much longer before we'll have laws
passed against it for inauthentic content and hate speech.
It's certainly where fundamentalists get their bigotry.
You already agreed that the bible is not a science book, jackass.
The Bible is not a science book, it is not
a history book, making it.......fiction.
Except there is evidence that Jesus and Moses existed.
Jesus yes, Moses no.

ARCHEOLOGISTS AGREE: MOSES NEVER EXISTED.
The main book of Judaism, called the Torah (the first
5 books of the Old Testament, "OT") is filled with
stories of a man called Moses, the story of Exodus
and the persecution of Jews by an Egyptian king who
allegedly enslaved them.
The Torah is obvious mythology. The fact that it is
fiction is obvious from Book 1, Page 1. The Earth is
not 4000 years old. Cultures (unknown to the scribes)
flourished much before. Written records and archeological
evidence using carbon dating show man's presence tens
of thousands of years ago, probably over a 100,000 years
ago. A million people cannot live in a vast desert
(without water or food) in a hostile nation for 40 years-
-and leave no trace.
The techniques of higher criticism showed that the Old
Testament was weaved together out of four source documents
and was produced much later than claimed.
Furthermore, archaelogical and historical evidence has
proven Moses, Exodus, Abraham, Joshua, King David, etc.
to be basically myths copied from African and Eastern/
Middle Eastern cultures.
For eg., according to Prof. Ze'ev Herzog who teaches
in the Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near Eastern
Studies at Tel Aviv University, in "Deconstructing the
Walls of Jericho", states as follows:
"This is what archaeologists have learned from their
excavations in the Land of Israel: the Israelites were
never in Egypt, did not wander in the desert, did not
conquer the land in a military campaign and did not
pass it on to the 12 tribes of Israel. Perhaps even
harder to swallow is the fact that the united monarchy
of David and Solomon, which is described by the Bible
as a regional power, was at most a small tribal kingdom.
..... Most of those who are engaged in scientific work
in the interlocking spheres of the Bible, archaeology
and the history of the Jewish people - and who once went
into the field looking for proof to corroborate the Bible
story - now agree that the historic events relating to
the stages of the Jewish people's emergence are radically
different from what that story tells." (in an article in
the Jewish magazine Haaretz, as republished on):
