What Is Science?
"Even if all the data point to an intelligent designer, such an hypothesis is excluded from science because it is not naturalistic."
Dr. Scott Todd, Kansas State University, Nature 401(6752):423, Sept. 30, 1999
What You Will Learn
Many people do not realize that science was actually developed in Christian Europe by men who assumed that God created an orderly universe. If the universe is a product of random chance or a group of gods that interfere in the universe, there is really no reason to expect order in nature. Many of the founders of the principle scientific fields, such as Bacon, Galileo, Kepler, and Newton, were believers in a recently created earth. The idea that science cannot accept a creationist perspective is a denial of scientific history...

I haven't seen one yet. Please inform me a one. Thanks.
“How is it that scientists determined the center of that which has no borders? Conclusively. “
Let me understand this—are you arguing in support of geocentrism? I’m giving you an opportunity to respond with a simple “no”.
Curious, Buck. Where is the center of the universe then?
How far are the edges from us in the different directions?
If we’re not in the center, then we must be closer to one edge than the other. How far away is the closest edge and how far away is the furthest edge?
You do know that geocentrism and heliocentrism refer to the entity that we call the “solar system” and not the universe as a whole, right?
The public school system for centuries started each day with Bible reading and prayer and taught creation. It was not considered the establishment of religion, nor the teaching of it, nor was it considered illegal.
I don’t want my kids taught your atheistic, nature worshiping mythology either. You want to teach your kids that there’s no God and that they’re just a bunch of animals, teach them on your own.
What lies is the Bible full of and how can you demonstrate that they are lies?
Quick! Tell the Modesto school district. They REQUIRE every 9th grader to pass a course on religion.
evos dont answer questions. They only create strawmen, distort, project and attempt to re-define the playing field
Read and get educated ...
Buck's been asked this before. Buck has absolutely no idea what he's talking about on pretty much any subject.
He'd be more amazed I think that because certain animals share similar DNA, people are gullible enough to believe this can only mean they share a common ancestor based on sheer conjecture and nothing more.
I'm unclear as to why you place "theory" in quoatation marks.
It's crystal clear to people that aren't caught up in the God-hating cult that's clearly hijacked the theory now taught as fact by secualar humanist liberals.
Regardless, I can think of no other theory that is constantly attacked by shameful Christians (and Muslims, for that matter) who are so insecure in their faith they think a branch of science will somehow disprove their beliefs... Even though it does no such thing.
No other "theory" has been hijacked by cultists projecting their insecurities in this way you just displayed. As if that's not shameful enough, you take money from Christians to pay for your failed godless debacles after running them off. THAT would be the very definition of shameful. Along with cowardly and weak. So called science theory as taught only by the threat of lawsuits."Real" science in the liberal world, where up is down and down is up.
I support having religious classes as religious classes, not teaching religion in science classes.
As for creationists lack of tolerance. HA!! We just want equal time for our money. You force us to pay for teaching we find ridiculous so we try to get an alternative taught, since were paying for the classrooms. We even offer to have it taught at our expense. We get pushed out of the classrooms by government orders and told our position isnt science while the evidence that our position is indeed science isnt allowed to be heard. Then when we defend our position were told were intolerant.
Not to mention, Christians pay for their failed godless liberal debacles long after we’ve left!
Dude, can you answer my questions?
Interesting. My tax money goes to pay for religious classes in public schools and NOT once have I ever called for removing them from the school system. Probably 100's times more money than goes for teaching evolution in the public school system. I think you should rethink your position.
Science is the single most productive means humanity has ever come across for gaining useful information about the physical universe.
Science is based upon the systematic gathering of data on measurable and replicable natural phenomena, and attempts to explain and predict these data by appeal to measurable and replicable natural causes in the formation of a scientific hypothesis.
If the evidence supports the hypothesis, and your hypothesis is found to be USEFUL in predicting and explaining natural phenomena, then it may one day be regarded as a theory.
A theory is the highest rank of scientific explanation, making the construction just a theory the domain of tools and fools.
Nice, and I guess everyone is to ignore multiverse theory, string theory, the fact that scientists study the effects of prayer...
what a hoot!
Which one did he miss?
Darwinism in the schools is like I remember grits in the cafes in Georgia. You could take it or leave it but you ain't gonna get a plate of food without it. And no subs on the menu either!
“Buck has absolutely no idea what he’s talking about on pretty much any subject.”
Thank you! I’m in your head! I may use that as my tagline if I decide to change from FT.
And what are the findings of those studies?
LOL....ever notice the liberals have these apt handles they use, making them stick out like sore thumbs?
