"Dr." Patrick Trischitta on the US Constitution

The things people say. Christmas isn't a religious holiday and now this:
Note that the US Constitution forbids the NSF and the NIH from funding research in harmonizing science and religion.
That sounded like total bullshit to me, so I downloaded a PDF version of the US Constitution and searched for those two key words. First stop was "science":

Section 8- Powers of Congress we have:
To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries;
That was the only time the word "science" was used. Delete that word and plug in "religion" (two hits):

Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791. 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

So no, the US Constitution does NOT forbid the NSF and the NIH from funding research in harmonizing science and religion. Now if science said they are harmonized and Congress tried to make a law, for example, because of that finding, there would be a problem

But that is moot anyway as who says the two are not in harmony? Sir Isaac Newton, the Father of Modern Science, saw science as a way to uncover and understand God's handiwork. Many others have, also.

It is only when science is being ruled by the dogma of materialism is there a problem between the two. And it is a contrived problem, borne out of the ignorance of atheistic materialists.

So, if anything, this is a very recent manifestation. It only exists in the minds of the few, anyway. And those few appear to be willfully ignorant and hell bent on some agenda.

I will also note that if what Patrick said were true, then that would be a problem for science in the USA. You see, the US Constitution doesn't apply outside of the USA. That means other countries are free to explore research venues the dogmatic materialists want banned from the USA. Those countries are free to explore and better understand our existence while we have to wallow in the materialistic mud.

I am starting too see many similarities between today's atheistic materialists and North Korea.
