Absence of Evidence Applies Differently Between Science and Religion

In religion, which makes unfalsifiable claims or untestable claims, absence of evidence is almost always evidence of absence. However, in science absence of evidence does not always mean that there is no evidence. Science does not make unfalsifiable or untestable claims. Instead science strives to understand the world around us and scientists make testable predictions. Sometimes these predictions don’t always have direct evidence. For example, Darwin did not have half the evidence we have today when he penned the theory of evolution. I asked the question to the Godless Engineer during our discussion of the historicity of Jesus so that he can clarify this for our audience.

With all the extinct religions and the lack of evidence in contemporary religions, especially the claims to the contrary, I can succinctly say that religion is bullshit.
