The Reality of What Science Cannot Argue

Reader comment on item: Atheism among Muslims Is "Spreading Like Wildfire"
in response to reader comment: Does Atheism Really Have An Answer

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Sep 30, 2021 at 15:21

Perennial and pertinent to what Dr. Pipes' forum attempt to discern is the connection of religion and anti-religious affinities and their historical stranglehold on the ancient and modern effects on the Middle East. Where the circumstances are connected to the Judaic influences in Israel and the more orthodox practices of Judaism and the extreme necessity for the nation of Israel to protect herself from the onslaught of the Islamic religious empire's intent on her destruction, the question is posed: what does science really have to offer in that endeavor? And to the earlier contention of atheism's influences of such things: what, indeed does atheism have to offer except obstructionist arguments of Israel's obvious religious connection?
Using science in an attempt (a long and odious argument that for reasons of anti-religionism) to justify a secular approach in rejecting spiritual affirmation of supernatural phenomena does nothing to change the reality that Israel is the real center of Middle East issues that the world struggles with constantly, without resolution: why is that? Science evidently does not know and cannot answer.
To the other end of the argument of extreme religious perceptions that want to ignore the science that was designed by the Eternal Sovereign, it is inexplicable that such observations of duty to belief can be used to blindly defend faith when even the Holy One of Israel is omniscient in regards to pestilence as well as whether global atmospherical phenomena (alleged and real) are under His control as much as each and every life ever lived. Neither science, atheism, nor even extremist religious observations have an answer; for they do not know upon whom they can rely without knowing the Truth.
