Scientific Theories do not become laws
Do we have to explain even basic scientific nomenclature to you?
Theories don't grow up to be laws. Laws and Theories are totally different things. Since I know you will not bother to do the basic research to understand the difference I will spoon feed you the information. But I am quite certain you will not bother to read and understand the information.

Coyote and I had a short thread on the definitions you seem to be unwilling to learn.
Logical fallacy poster

quote:
The biggest difference between a law and a theory is that a theory is much more complex and dynamic. A law describes a single action, whereas a theory explains an entire group of related phenomena. And, whereas a law is a postulate that forms the foundation of the scientific method, a theory is the end result of that same process.
A simple analogy can be made using a slingshot and an automobile.
A scientific law is like a slingshot. A slingshot has but one moving part--the rubber band. If you put a rock in it and draw it back, the rock will fly out at a predictable speed, depending upon the distance the band is drawn back.
An automobile has many moving parts, all working in unison to perform the chore of transporting someone from one point to another point. An automobile is a complex piece of machinery. Sometimes, improvements are made to one or more component parts. A new set of spark plugs that are composed of a better alloy that can withstand heat better, for example, might replace the existing set. But the function of the automobile as a whole remains unchanged.
A theory is like the automobile. Components of it can be changed or improved upon, without changing the overall truth of the theory as a whole.

Plenty of data and a link there.
Maybe you might even try to learn something.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: Back to the topic !!
As I suspected you decided not to take the chance to educate yourself on the subject. Your response has nothing to do with my post, all it is is word salad and preaching. When you actually want to discuss the subject let me know.

Re: Next.
The root of DavidJay's problem is willful ignorance. I tried spoon feeding the definition of a scientific law. He refused to take the opportunity to understand the basics of the subject he wants to discuss. There can be no rational discussion with a person that refuses to understand the absolute basics of the subject matter.
