Creationism Vs. Evolution: The Debate Is Live Tonight : The Two-Way : NPR


Science vs Creationism


Bill Nye vs Kent Ham


This isn't to spark a debate on the two, just thought it's something you all to enjoy. Take any creationism/science debate over to the picture thread. Thanks.

"It was just amazing," said Dennis Aabo Sorensen of Aalborg, Denmark, who lost his left hand in a fireworks accident and volunteered to pilot-test the bulky prototype. "It was the closest I have had to feeling like a normal hand."

Yeah, I know I am, but what are you?

Trolls just want to have fun

In two online studies (total N = 1215), respondents completed personality inventories and a survey of their Internet commenting styles. Overall, strong positive associations emerged among online commenting frequency, trolling enjoyment, and troll identity, pointing to a common construct underlying the measures. Both studies revealed similar patterns of relations between trolling and the Dark Tetrad of personality: trolling correlated positively with sadism, psychopathy, and Machiavellianism, using both enjoyment ratings and identity scores. Of all personality measures, sadism showed the most robust associations with trolling and, importantly, the relationship was specific to trolling behavior. Enjoyment of other online activities, such as chatting and debating, was unrelated to sadism. Thus cyber-trolling appears to be an Internet manifestation of everyday sadism.

Does physics tell us that there is a soul and an afterlife?

I mean, I could say all elephants really wish they were monkeys and my "theory" would be just as valid in an empirical scientific context.

I agree that the book is long on hypothesis and short on experimental evidence.

You mean like Einstein's theory of relativity was initially?

A lot more thought and substance went into Albert's work. You may want to check your facts before you high-five and celebrate

Re: All things Science related. λν = c

Albert's work was the first that popped to mind and, while substantial work went into it, it was far from universally accepted at first and, in fact, much initial experimentation was inconclusive and some experimentation by those within the accepted community (i.e. not just a bunch o' quacks) disproved it.

Science travels many back roads and, often, down dead ends before arriving at an accepted provable theorem. Scientific crazy today is often tomorrow's scientific truth (birds came dinosaurs! Now that's just crazy talk). I thought the point would have been obvious to such a rational mind as yours RR.

There I go ... again overestimating your ability to detect subtlety and nuance. <sigh> I keep forgetting how limited your thought process is.
