When people proudly say they live by faith in the lord, I take their claim with a grain or two of salt.
Fact is, if we judge a person by what he does instead of by what he says, an entirely different picture emerges. For the faithful, should they get cancer, do not seek a cure by heading to their church to pray, but choose to utilize the Cat Scans and x rays that science has provided us .
And now that evolution has opened the door to our growing knowledge of genetics, which promise to offer a whole new arm to medical science, I’m sure the faithful will join the rest of us in seeking new options as they become available to treat their illnesses and that of their families.
Fact is, when it to comes to push and shove, it seems obvious to me that they put their faith in science, not in their deity. Reality trumps rhetoric, Plato.
p.s Jehovah’s excepted

  1. Yeah, but in some cases they really don’t do anything. Unless you count praying as something.
