James, you asked. You are now responsible for any hate that may result 
from this my email towards me ;)

And what was you actual question? I am sorry. I am not sure. I would 
like to take it seriously, but am not sure what exactly it was.

Was it perhaps about "what is against religion in science" or something 

If yes, than I will say very shortly, again: there is nothing against 
religion in science.

The Bible, New Testament, they are not scientific works. I could 
possibly discuss them together with you drinking beer or coffee but I 
can not discuss the merits of that most sold book (which is considered 
saint by many, including myself) before Lenin works outnumbered it in 
Soviet Union and before Harry Pottter.

I am sorry for these sick idiots whom you mention here. Actually, when I 
come to Northern America, I could not understand attitude towards 
religion of other religious Christians there as well. It is different 
than that I grew up with in Poland, in Europe. OK, thats not the essence 
of my reply.

Have a look to the sky during a night when there is no clouds, outside 
of the city. Can you imagine that contemporary science does NOT explain 
almost nothing about what you see there? There is so many questions 
around. To believe, for me - it means to see these questions. Nothing 
more I need. Nothing more. To be happy - means to me to be able to 
understand how many questions around are not answered.

 From another hand. I am now in Russia. What is done about Russia in 
Canadian media? Bullshit. A mess. People in Canada actually have no idea 
about living in Russia.  Canada is not an exception. Poland borders with 
Russia. I send a few emails to a Polish mailing list explaining how is 
life here and they listened with open mouths. Astonishing? Yes, it is.

I seek the truth.
