I don't believe that one scientific paradigm is better than another, all one can say is that they are different and non causal(linear).

People have become more aware of observational testing details... A lot of people haven't as well but in scientific modes, I don't know what you would mean by "science getting better"

Were you, then, just asking for other peoples' opinions since you already had your own answer to the question?

The whole philosopy v science thing you are doing doesnt fit here. If you really want to do that stick with the philosophy section.

There is not an area that philosophy does not belong in. Can not examine, or indeed should be deemed to be irrelevant to.

I was all in for a philosophy section, but if its being used to dump any philosophical question on any subject into, then that seems quite wrong to me.

Can't please everyone.

IandI's "religion of science".

He's just a troll posting this stuff to be inflammatory. He doesn't deserve a well thought out responce. Only scorn and contempt.

You've made your views perfectly clear by trolling his every post practically, you dont need to spell it out.

All he's ever received in life is scorn and contempt. Why else do you think he acts out in the way he does?

It's attitudes like this one that are the reason why humanity has progressed so far but still engages in the senseless bloodshed that is war.

You sound like you know him. Like you were there while he was getting bashed and bullied as a child.

Do you know him personally?

IMO this guy isn't acting out. He's just a nasty person.

Better hope I don't start WW3 if it's that simple! lol
