No, we don't assume everything is correct. That's why we ask for evidence and continue to investigate and progress, because we know that we don't know everything.

On the other hand, as GM so ably demonstrates, there is a contingent that insults progress and wishes only to focus on their interpretation of scripture to the exclusion of all else.

Any evidence that the recommendation was based on results from following the scientific method?

Galen also advocated vag*n*l fumigation to treat hysteria, but that doesn't mean it was based on science.

Why don't we have a physics, science or math subforum? It would be much more beneficial than the religion subforum.

Because those pesky theists would keep showing up and ruining our threads with bible quotes.

(yes theists, this was firmly tongue in cheek)

See it was like this.

God had just finished making the next universe over.

So he brings a hot coal over from that one and with all the volatile gases in our Universe. 'BANG!!!!!!!!'

Of course it was a big one. God has many Universes. Some are really BIG!!!


Any one want to prove me wrong??? Step right up. I mean if you intellects can't even figure out how to make a new forum here. ??????? It's late, I'm not drunk but I'll be praying for ya!!!

Absolutely not. Where in what I wrote did you get the impression that I think the state of our scientific discovery is perfect in every detail. We're still learning everyday. That doesn't change that so many religious hypocrites out there spit on the notion of scientific discovery while not only enjoying, but depending on it for their very lives. This is hypocrisy any way you wanna slice it. It's truly biting the hand that feeds you... or I guess I should say medically treats you. On the flip side of that coin no mythology has ever given me anything other than a burden and chains. Think about that next time you take even an Advil. The same biology and chemistry that you spit on... made modern day medicine possible.

Your "science" is a religion, nothing more or less. You too have your heretics (questioning your dogma) which will be excommunicated if they dare question the holy writ according to Darwin, Dawkins and Hitchens.

Branes, multiverses, strings, quantum singularities. A never ending parade of imaginations and theories. Meanwhile the Word of the Lord continues on forever, unchanging and reliable.

Indeed... how about it being perfectly fine to rape a single virgin so long as you pay her dad 50 pieces of silver and promise to take the damaged goods off his hands? This still cool as well?

I still like the interpretation that God will eat the souls of the saved in Heaven. All heaven is is a giant eternal buffet for old god... and we are the food.

This seemed appropriate as a response.

Neither was the global warming caused by humans concept prevaricated by experts in the science field until it was determined and revealed that the evidence was falsified. All in the name of a socio-political economic agenda.

Sadly, the biggest reason I hang out in RI is because this is the closest we get to a STEM forum.

I don't have to prove you wrong. Do you have any math to support your model? If not, I can reject your assertion as easily as you made it.

When was it revealed that the evidence was falsified? I must have missed that. Please supply a reference or two. You can't be referring to the stolen University of East Anglia emails, since it was determined that there was no false information found in them.

No. I am siding with the fact that global warming based on man made CO2 is a myth propogated for political and financial gain. Essentially, abusing science once again to put forward an agenda rather than actually pursuing knowledge. The philosophy of science has been pimped out over the years more than a two dollar whore.
