Gravity is a law, Ass.
So much for ol pops being an ignoramouse incapable grasping the scientific method. Evidently the same cannot be said about you.

It's both, ass.
BTW, you spelled "ignoramus" incorrectly, you ignoramus.

BTW, no one missed you. Get lost.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Your lack of understanding of the scientific process is appalling. If all that science is just a theory (in your description a "guess"), you can just turn every electronic gadget you own over to someone else. You live by skimming on top of the results of the deep understanding of scientists, mathematicians, chemists and engineers, using the technology while steadfastly refusing to admit that the (scientific) method they use works. Pathetic troll. You're a builder? Do you use nails? At some point in mankind's past, someone figured out that an iron nail would hold pieces of wood together more efficiently. It sure as fuck wasn't a god-botherer like you or your personally acknowledged intermediary between the "heavenly cosmos" and you. Hmmm, I recall that your god can't handle iron. Guess you should eschew iron structures from now on.

I was referring to Newton's law of gravity.

A scientific law is a mathematical description of behavior and is man-made.
A scientific theory is an explanation of the causes and effects of the behavior based on evidence.

No one mentioned that, did they? Consider
Why are you bringing that up?

I actually believe in evolution, and there is some evidence for it...but it's still a theory.

How do people not get that?

Because that is the theory of gravity. I brought it up because I was told to jump out of a window because gravity was just a theory. However, it isn't just a theory, it is also a law.

I never said I was against science or learning through science. Stop adding to what I say please.
