Must ask what he/she means by "science." Otherwise, it is a waste of time. If he/she cannot define what science is and what it is not, then there is nothing to discuss.

Subject: [asa] scientism question

A questions about the ‘scientism’ worldview (science is the only reality). (I’m dealing with an atheist like that.)

If a person says they accept only ‘science,’ should they have a logical issue with evolution since there is no scientific understanding of how biological life can arise from non-life? Seems like abiogenesis is a ‘belief’ based on the evidence indicated by science in general, yet the atheist I’m dealing with claims to have “no beliefs of any kind.”
