So all those scientists who stuck rigidly to their theories without a shred of, er, scepticism and despite mounting evidence against their theories did not make idiots of themselves. Hmmmn, interesting!Also, it's odd how, say, Christianity has plodded on and yet so many scientific theories have fallen by the wayside.
Who is the person quoted? It;s a great observation, but I can't read the name.
Infidel753-It is Seth MacFarlane.
DD-Christianity plods along without change because truth doesn't matter to it -- only the approved myths. Meanwhile, science must change as more is discovered because only truth matters (and not what someone wishes was true).
Debatable, Ted (if I may use the familiar), but there again, there is truth and there is Truth. And 'scientific truth' being, as history indicates, always and forever *provisional*, or at a least, local and not universal, I think a healthy scepticism is in order.And Mr. MacFarlane is incorrect. Science and scientists very rarely attempt to disprove theories particularly those produced by their 'elders and betters', and even less so if the particular theory is useful - in terms of career, advancement, money, influence, etc.
I absolutely disagree. Science is always in the business of either proving or disproving current knowledge.
David,At least I don't have to fear going to a fiery pit for eternity if I question some of the science put out there. You on the other hand don't have the luxury of doubting the so-called "inerrant word of God" Being skeptical in that regard could cost you your immortal soul?
David,"there is truth and there is Truth."You are aware that when many of the thoughts that are currently in the bible were written by people who still thought the earth was flat and that the sun revolved around it, aren't you. Which truth is relevant here?
