Science is not a subject, but a method.

Yes, when you have the post in front of you, hit Reply
Highlight and copy everything. Then just back button out and come here.
Open a new post and paste / edit if necessary, leaving top & bottom quote coding. When you do this, it preserves the link in the little green arrow.

Now that is a sentence!

It's not the best analogy, but I think it got my point across because he didn't ask me anymore about it.

Ironically, I think even the Amish would find it very astute. It's quite perfect. Shy
