Yes, I do.
No, evidently you do not. As Hatter alluded to, science, and by extension scientific documents, is merely trying to better understand the universe and everything in it. It has absolutely nothing to do with gods of any kind.
The difference between scientific docs and religious texts are that the science has evidence, and anyone can test those evidences themselves. There's no faith required, at all. So, when we use science docs, it is not preaching, it is educating. It is putting forth testable, evidence based facts.
Unfortunately for some believers, science has discovered that many things once attributed to the work of gods are simply natural phenomena that require no deities to exist.
Because man loved the ways of the world more than he loved God. We are happy in our sin. We don't want a Creator to tell us what our purpose is, we have already decided that.

FIFY. Reality doesn't care about what we "want". Reality just IS.

Then may I suggest that your imagination is sorely limited.
When a man goes to the Almighty God as says Lord I am a sinful man, and I want to change, that's when life begins, it's called the new birth.
Well, good for you, but I got my birth right the first time.
The Bible says it better, joy unspeakable and full of glory.
Blah blah blah. Sorry for the snarky reply, but you are failing to address the points that are being brought up to you, and I find that extraordinarily frustrating and disrespectful.
