marc9000Just like when someone's level of Christianity gets too far away from what the National Academy of Sciences (93% atheist) defines as science, you and many others here label them as flat-earthers.
I completely and utterly object to this. You insinuate that all the scientists in the whole world are all just spineless yes-brothers. Seeing that you insulted me personally, I thought of reponding to your insult by doing the same.

But I won't.

Science is a method. Not a definition.

You can even look on Wiki what science is. It starts with the sentence:

Science (from Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge") is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe.

Poor, poor you. Do you think that there is some form of a worldwide conspiracy amongst all the scientists in the world and that they are all just there to 'prove' your delusion wrong? Why would all the scientists in every country in the world do what the US National Academy of Sciences tell them what to do?

Got news for you. Science is the best method to obtian knowledge devised by humanity so far. By miles. It works.

Nothing to do with your particular delusion.
