    Not even that.

    It's fantasy. He should take Brandon Sanderson's class on fantasy writing to learn how to do it correctly.

    No.

    That is not what you said.

    well....really!! You espouse the basis of what is today's science allegedly and you haven't even read it??
    Sarah Sanders doesn't often mop the White House Press Corp Floor...but when she does, she uses Jim Acosta.

    There is no American free press. They're bought and paid for.

    Scientists say a lot of stupid things.

    Once again I must belabor, that science is an ACTIVITY.

    The reason we "study" science (and the history of science), is so we now HOW to perform the experiment when the time comes.

    And the first part of knowing how to perform the experiment, is knowing how to ask the right question. If you ask a nonsense question, you'll get a nonsense answer. Garbage in garbage out.

    The reason we have models is so we can apply them to what we see. We must understand the structure and what we're looking at, so we can reach into our toolbox and pull out a model that might work or fit what we're seeing.

    If you are a scientist, you will quickly discover that performing a meaningful experiment is not easy. It is one of the hardest things anyone can possibly do. Sometimes people get lucky, and they start out asking the wrong question but in the design of the experiment they somehow end up asking the right one. Other times, asking the right question takes a creative genius, a stroke of intuition, a word from God.

    But the ACTIVITY of science is different from looking at a bunch of data and saying "therefore XYZ must be true". It's like the difference between watching the stock market from afar, and being a Floor Trader engaging in Daily trades. If you're a real good investor and you read all the papers, you might get a 3-day heads up on a recession, but the Floor Traders get it in 3 minutes. And they don't go through the kvetching about whether it's "really" a recession, they just look at the numbers and boom there it is.

    I've been trying to design an experiment to prove (or disprove) my brain embedding hypothesis. So far I've been unable to arrive at anything useful, I've been trying for about 15 years now. Top down I know it must be happening mathematically, and bottom up I have a little bit of information about anatomy and how brain cells work, and in the middle there is this amorphous area called artificial intelligence, but none of that crap puts me any closer to where I need to be.

    I can sit here all day and tell you that I am absolutely certain that this is the way things work, and god dammit if I could only prove it you would see the truth.

    But that's not really going to convince you, is it?

    [QUOTE=Sled Dog;2020991]No, actually a historical series of rational philosophers, from Democritus and culminating in Gallilleo, Newton, LaVoissieur, and other giants developed the scientific theory.

    The reason I choose to thank you is because you seem to enjoy illuminating your disdain for God by strutting arrogantly (much like Obama on coke) on a science forum intending for everyone to think that you are stunningly smart rather than stunningly stupid.

    You did not invent science. In fact, considering the prejudice pouring from your posts, you do not even comprehend what science is purposed to be about. Attempting to use science in any form or discipline to disprove the existence of God results only in the display of ignorance handcuffed by vanity and self importance.

    Nor did I invent religious practices. I certainly did not invent God. God made us all. Even Stalin was made in the image of God. Satan himself was made by God, and was PERFECT too, until iniquity (lawlessness) was found in him, undoubtedly because of his beauty, his talent, his brightness, his intelligence and his power. Seized by his own vanity, his own strutting, those who unwittingly ( in many instances) follow him, claiming that God is imaginary, a sky pixie, are his ignorant and deceived disciples.

    Yes, this does belong on the SCIENCE FORUM. Science is to be about understanding, about truth. And a scientist does not spout twisted versions of the meaning of Biblical verse in order to support his won warped versions of science.

    They will tell you that Darwin was on the right path, but wrong. Thus, there is no need to read his book.

    The real issue they have with Darwin is that he was a theist.
