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

July 2014 - herebedragons at "SCIENCE: -- "observational science" vs ..."

Thread: SCIENCE: -- "observational science" vs "historical science" vs ... science.
Message: Message 281 Re: Siccar Point

hbd lays out a clear procedure to convince opponents that an alternate hypothesis (in this case, the biblical flood) explains the geological evidence better than the current theory.

He masterfully contrasts the wrong way and the right way with multiple examples of each.

Edited by Adminnemooseus, : Added the part after "July 2014" to the subtitle.

Re: Tanypteryx, at "Oh No, The New Awesome Primary Thread"
Thanks for the vote. I don't know what to say about it either. I only intended to point out that Oswald's use of a mail-order rifle was what brought about the legislation that outlawed mail-order firearms, but kind of got carried away.

This is the best summation and reaction to the fake "outrage" by the martyrs for Xmas in the fake war that I have ever read.

All I can say to all to the hurt "christians" is; Grow the fuck up. No one is trying to insult you or your religion. Just because you think it is special does not make it incumbent upon me to treat you or your religion with any more respect or disrespect than I would any other person or religion.

My sentiments exactly.

Re: Edge makes it simple, obvious and irrefutable.
