For example, we can define the constant ratio of a circle's circumference divided by its diameter as Pi, but, to date, we cannot calculate its exact value. Thus, in science, we inadequately use the finite term "Pi" and its equation to inadequately describe the infinite term that is 3.14159.....

Re: Texas wants to rewrite the US History books

Yeah, to be clear, no hate towards the believers on the board. Personally, I have some disdain for the large role that religion has played and continues to play in our society, as I see it as a divisive force that can never be definitively ended as everyone clings to their belief system. That disdain sometimes comes out a little too clearly in my views... apologies if any were offended.

To assert that Christianity or that people working to further their christian beliefs has not created great benefits throughout the last 1000 years is to ignore history. I believe this was my point earlier. I fully accept that both on an individual and corporate basis, religion has been used as a destructive force in this world - I just believe that, on the whole over the last 1000 years, Christianity has brought more good than evil into the world.

That my friend is called the reason why we don't need those guys in Texas rewriting our history books.

fundamentalism = over simplification with a few fabrications thrown in there to force logical square pegs into round holes.
I never mentioned that book. Don't forget the Chinese were around back then too.

Sorry, the concept that christianity today is in the same state it was in the year 1010 is simply wrong.

What? Are supposed to pop out a new savior every few years?

"SEE THE REINCARNATION PART MCCCV"
THERE'S A NEW SAVIOR IN TOWN AND THIS TIME HE'S GOT ALL THE ANSWERS - INCLUDING THE FINE PRINT.

Speaking of the infinite the Mandelbrot Set is amazing.

like the carrying or destroying the texts of it's done its good and it's done its bad in history

I don't think that you can quantify good vs bad

how do you measure war?

Why do you have to wait? If you need assistance I'll be glad to help you.

No need to thank me, that's what friends are for.
