Think of when a religious person says "it's just a theory."
Most people don't know the real definition of theory, and think it mean's it's only a very under-supported hypothesis. By saying "theory of evolution" instead of "evolution" to those people who don't know what "theory" means, they think they aren't saying it's completely true, and causing religious people to not say "you're imposing beliefs upon us!"
And I also said this:
Quote: (or they don't want to enrage creationists by not saying "theory.")

Just because a religious person thinks that a scientific theory is "just a theory" scientists should stop using the word "theory" on TV?

Nevermind, I just realized I can't watch it anyway because at the time it will be aired, I will be sleeping anyway. Oh well, useful to have anyway, I've been blocked so many times!

Many verses are like silver threads
tied on the chimes of the stars-
if you pull them,
a silver peal makes the horizon vibrate.

Gravity is just a theory. Guess we should stop referring to it as so because of the common ignoramus misunderstanding of what a theory is.

It's just a theory that our bodies are made up of cells. But it might not be true, because after all, it is "just" a theory...

Angry it doesn't help that I keep seeing commercials for the show all day!!! I'll be sooo many people will be watching tonight. I hope it's amazing!!!

Ok, as I was typing this ANOTHER commercial played Laugh out load

People used to laugh at me when I would say "I want to be a comedian". Well nobody is laughing now!

You can never lose a homing pigeon - if your homing pigeon doesn't come back, what you've lost is a pigeon.

I was worried I'd miss it... But its just on like 50 channels... So I set as many to record as I could, just in case fox "interrupt this program to bring you a less blasphemous, family friendly program."

RE: Cosmos: TONIGHT
Anyone find it streaming yet? We cancelled our satellite years ago, and there no such thing as free TV out here in the country.we are strictly internet, but I REALLY wanna see this when it airs. Otherwise it may be days waiting for a decent upload. Sad

Just visiting.
