Fiction.

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

Calling it fiction is not abusive. Now if I had said it is a bunch of fucking bullshit and anyone who believes it should be locked up, that would be abusive, but I didn't say that. I said it's fiction.

But you guys aggressively assert that my beliefs, and Thug's and dredge's and others' are "not real" based on what? NOTHING, nothing at all.

That's correct, you have NOTHING, no convincing evidence that you are not just deluded.

Faith writes:

That's not a scientific stance

That's the only stance science can take because there is no convincing evidence that you are not deluded.

I believe the scientific view is that you can't make a judgment based on an absence of evidence.

Of course we can. The absence of evidence is a fact. You have never presented convincing evidence for any of your fantasies.
