Quote# 11557

I think it is important to point out that science has never proven anything.

The most accurate description of our world is the Word of God.

Numbers themselves are a very human thing, in fact they are really something intelligent beings must agree upon...they are not a dead reality.

Therefore God himself is alive...

In a really dumb sort of way, Andrew is kind of right. Science is more about disproving things than proving them. If you disprove all but one option, then that one option is provisionally correct.

BTW, Science has disproven many of the assertions made in the alleged Word of God.

The existence of numbers = god is alive?

I think I can hear my brain cells dying right now.

Uh-huh. So science has never proven radiation to exist? The Magic Fairy Text of Obey God or Burn for Eternity did that? Right...

Numbers are just an arbitrary agreement between people and therefore God?

That's pretty desparate.

Wow - I'm glad he has that version of reality all to himself!

This guy's attitude in a nutshell:

The Bible is definitive. Reality is frequently inaccurate.

I remember teenagers being this dumb back when I was in high school some thirty years ago. Fortunately there was no Internet on which they could post their stupidity.
More's the pity now...

The Scarecrow in \"The Wizard of Oz\" had better brains than this, and all he had in his head was straw.

(And, no, this does not constitute a \"straw man\" argument!)

\"I think it is important to point out that science has never proven anything.\"

Except for math, this is essentially true. Science is always open to the presentation of better evidence, so nothing is \"written in stone.\" Science tells us that if you jump off the Golden Gate bridge you will fall to your likely demise, science hasn't proven that you will fall. Why don't you go and test that, Andrew?


\"The most accurate description of our world is the Word of God.\"

That's rubbish, twaddle, hooey and bullshit, and I dare say that you know it is or else your one of the dumbest persons living.


\"Numbers themselves are a very human thing, in fact they are really something intelligent beings must agree upon...they are not a dead reality.\"

The characters we use to represent numbers are things that intelligent people agree on. Numbers of things exist no matter what you or I or anyone else is willing to agree on.


\"Therefore God himself is alive...\"

Wow! If the Fundie logic jump was an Olympic event, Andrew would be the gold medalist. My head's still spinning.

Theoretical science speculates.

Experimental science disproves.

Mathematics proves.



Each of the three has its own domain and when working together, they help us understand our reality much better than nomads who lived thousands of years ago. So while the first sentence in this post of Andrew's is correct (and so is the third, to a degree), the rest of it is absolute hogwash. Does not follow!

Turnips are green, therefore Andrew is an idiot.

I'm gonna go beat up this twit. Of course, I'll be arrested and sentenced to 15 years in prison. Fortunately, I'm an intelligent being, and I will never agree that \"15\" is equal to anything other than \"-5.\" Not only will I go free, but I'll get to sue for wrongful imprisonment!

Hey, every one of you insulting this guy's theory, shut up. He's got pseudointellectual ellipses backing him up!

how baked was this guy when he came up with: \"Numbers themselves are a very human thing, in fact they are really something intelligent beings must agree upon...they are not a dead reality\"

seriously?

Mr. Pedantic

Technically, it should be \"Argumentum ab rectum\". Just cause most things are \"ad\" doesn't mean we should use it willy-nilly.
