If You Can't Think, You Can't Be An Atheist or Anything Else

I love this… If God doesn’t exist, you can’t actually believe in thought and, therefore, you can’t use thought and reason to not believe in God.

        I find this laughable, becuase it assumes the conclusion, without even truley THINKING about the topic or even considering or THINKING about other alternatives.

        There other reason I find it laughable, because the majority of our greatest thinking scientific minds of the modern era, don’t believe in a personal god. How’s that for thinking?

        As far as science is concerned, I would refer you here: http://rightbill.wordpress.com/2012/07/19/god-and-modern-physics-fr-robert-spitzer/.

        Additionally, modern scientific methods were developed by Catholic priests (Robert Grosseteste (c. 1175-1253),Roger Bacon, student of Grosseteste (d. 1294), Ignazio Danti (1536-1586), Marin Mersenne (1588-1648), Jean-Felix Picard (1620-1682), Gregor Mendel (1822-1884), Armand David (1826-1900), Julius Nieuwland (1878-1936), Georges Lemaรฎtre (1894-1966), Stanley Jaki (b. 1924), Michal Heller (b. 1936), among others)

        As far as thinking is concerned, You might give a gander at Thomas Aquinas: Summa Theologiae Ia, q. 2, a. 3.

        God Bless…

        never heard of those guys, but it is odd you left off the two most famous catholic scientist. Galileo and Copernicus. No surprise you left those two off considering the catholic history behind them.

        but in regards to great scientific minds, try this list: Einstein, Edison, Freud, Halley, Higgs, Hawking, Nobel, darwin, oppeinheimer

        Now these people I know you have heard of. Great influential thinkers, were we all obviousley and evidently know there accomplishments

        Interesting that you have never heard of those guys. Without them, the scientists you named would not be the scientists that they are/were. They, as well as others in the Church, laid the groundwork and developed the scientific methods still used today. (The University system is a Catholic development, by the way.)

        The “Galileo” affair is completely mischaracterized in popular culture. The Church had no problem with him until he (essentially) tried to turn the Bible into a science book (which it isn’t) and pass off heliocentrism as scientific fact (which it is) instead of theory (which, at that time, it was) without proving it (which he couldn’t). (Real scientists today would do the same thing, actually – they would not accept theory as absolute fact until proven to be so.)
