Sure, the have been found old scrolls and buried buildings and so forth, but that doesn't mean that they mean anything other than they were found. The simple fact about religion is you have to die to find out if it's real.. I think that really raises the bar for the burden of proof pretty damned high far beyond anything science will ever prove or what anyone else will ever find out as a mere mortal.
Until the burden of proof gets meet then I'll assume it to be not real and since once I die I'm not coming back nobody will ever be able to say \"I told you so.\"
With me it's not a matter of science is great or not because obviously science has done lots of shitty things over the years. That's not the question anyway.
Science can build bombs or cure disease and is used by everyone from the most fundamentalist groups to the most ardent atheists. Some people think all scientists are bad or all atheists or some silliness like that and it has nothing to do with belief systems. Science is a learning process and not a process of wishing or of magic spells like religion often is.
Science works on testing, double testing, blind testing and so on and not by merely wishing or praying it to happen. Until the religious nuts get that through their thick skulls I reject it (religion) completely and undeniably in my way of thinking and I'm under no obligation to prove my thinking because I'm just me..I don't ask anyone to join me or follow me or to give me money for my beliefs or anything of the sort. Religion on the other hand.....does..with utterly no proof whatsoever. NONE! It DEMANDS we follow and believe because they say so. It's THAT simple.

Religion is spoken unto the heart, not the mind.  Wink
