As for me, I don't have a quarrel with science except where people who are religious followers of science aggrandize their self concept by demeaning others who don't share their commitment, their devotion to their scientific beliefs.
Term "religious followers of science" is oxymoron. Again you try to put science and religion as equal views of the world. They are NOT. Science searches for truth and is backed up by countless evidence and experiments. In your words: It is useful, because it works.
Religion is a claim that supernatural exists without physical evidence. Don't you see the huge difference?

If you talk about evolution theory, it hasn't done anything more for me than Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion. It explains the world we live in and backs it up by physical evidence.

Christians live their life based on ancient book. Christians are bounded by its laws and fear of hell. Christians prepare for the next life and don't understand how precious this one is. Christians are manipulated by guilt trip while your religious leaders are getting massages from male escorts while smoking crack.

The most intriguing question again is: What if hks786 is right?
Didn’t you just waste your life because you had bad luck to be a Christian. Don’t you find this bizarre?
