Worst Ignorant Fool! Was: "Worse Nightmare!"

Goddess, how pathetic. It's what science *IS* Ron. It is how science
is *SUPPOSED* to operate. If it wasn't, you'd still believe Earth is
the center of the solar system (I assume you are aware that it isn't).
If the scientific method didn't REQUIRE self-correctioon and self-
testing the way it does, you would not be using computers today,
because the atomists theory didn't have room for electrons. If science
didn't correct its errors, it would be as self-contradictory and
error-riddled as the bible. Really, Ron, you should not believe what
your cult's masters tell you to believe, and get at least a high
school education--- you owe it to yourself and your family.
RS> The Bible has stayed basic for thousand of years.
Only up to the time of the printing press. Haven't you been paying
attention? The bible's inability to correct its faults is why it
makes no sense and is self-contradictory.
RS> You and your type have not been able to do away with it nor
RS> dis-prove it.
Who the hell wants to? It keeps you ignorant fools grubbing in the
dirt and slime of ignorance, out of the way of your masters. It is
no coincedence that religion keeps the poor from eatting the rich.
The bible dis-proves itself quite nicely, thank you. How many horses
did Saul give David? 1700 or 7000?
RS> We can't say that for science can we?
Damn right! That's the beauty of the scientific method: it is self-
correcting. If it wasn't you'd still believe angels were pushing the
planets along in their orbits. (I assume you are aware that they
You are either utterly ignorant about what science is, or wilfully
decieving yourself. Most scientific ideas have stood the test of
time--- some for over two thousand years! Most of our contemorary
scientific theories are many hundreds of years old--- only a few
actually REPLACE the old; the vast majority of changes are additions
to theories that have already been demonstrated valid. New discoveries
in science tend to ENGULF past theories, to re-synthesize and polish
existing theories. Very few modern theories have overthrown previous
theories because the previous theories are almost universally observed
to be correct.
Archimedes demonstrated his theories were correct. Along comes
Galileo: not to replace the older theories, but to improve them and
add many new ones of his own. Then Newton comes along and does the
same. Then Maxwell. Then Einstein. Then Bohr. Then Pauli. . . the
theories of Archimedes ARE STILL CORRECT, even though 2080 years have
passed. The last MAJOR revolution was around 1890, when it was
discovered that the atom isn't indivisible.
RS> What a waste of life......... how much more productive to

RS> have done.
And we will continue to improve the lives of you and all the other
self-blinded fools of your masters, despite their ignorance, through
the scientific method. You may turn your back on science, but it STILL
FEEDS YOU. It warms you and cools you and clothes you and heals you.
It carries your burdens and extends your (albeit miserable) life. It
distributes food and pharmacologicals and entertainment and knowledge
and understanding directly to your door. It delivers fresh drinking
water effortlessly to your house.
Sitting on ones' ass and praying until ones' dick falls off HAS NEVER
accomplished even a tiny fraction of what science has. In fact, it
has actively hindered the quality of life for four thousand years.
You whine and complain about science, but you demonstrate a complete
lack of understanding of what science is. How special.
Why don't you WALK YOUR SILLY TALK: put up or shut up??? Since you
object to the scientific method, give up all that science has given
to you. Dig your own water well by hand; plant your own food; live
in a cave; die of disease. But do it quiety--- the rest of us are
on our way to the stars.
