You're taking the opinion of a random blogger over the position of one of the most reputable English dictionaries in the world? Could you be any more biased? Facepalm

It is not bias. Some dictionaries are descriptive and some are prescriptive.

You want to go with the illiterate usage? Be my guest, but that usage loses useful information.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

However............."The grim reality is that there appears to be a cohort so ideologically invested in a belief that their convictions are impervious to the intrusions of reality. In these cases, it is highly unlikely that a simple mathematical demonstration of the untenability of their belief that will change their viewpoint".

Tell us something we don't know!!!Confused

It shouldn't really require an equation to show these things. It should only require data and extrapolated evidence to convince people that a theory is valid. Yet some people try to defend ridiculous claims using futile arguments that they wouldn't normally use.

An example of this:

(Some) Creationists on evolution: "You didn't see us evolve from apes, did you?"
Me (being equally callow in my response): "You didn't see God create the universe, did you?"

Sounds like a conspiracy to me. Consider
