Quote# 376

[After being mocked for misrepresenting Newton's laws]

i dont know if u have ever took science class. i think it was newton who discovered it. one of the things he said in the law is "what comes up must come down."

and by the way. there is no law of evolution. darwin the founder even has said it is a theory. and to this day it is not proven. neither is creation but there is more proof to support chritianity than evolution.

<<< darwin the founder even has said it is a theory. >>>

1) Once wider research is done, the founder's opinion isn't worth much more than any other scientist's (among those who have done said research, that is).

2) \"Theory\" in the scientific world doesn't mean \"wild guess\" or \"unsubstantiated hypothesis\", it means (loosely) \"if this were false, we should have been able to disprove it by now, so it's probably true\".

While there's proof of Christianity's existance, there's not really anything proving it treaches more truth than any other religion.

And there's more proof of evolution than there is of veracity of the Christian religions.

That wasn't Newton, it was 'Blood Sweat and Tears'. The song was 'Spinning Wheel'.

Punkrocker, shut the fuck up. Saying shit doesn't make it so, haven't you figured that out yet? you can't wish science away, make someone evil by hoping or pray the rapture into happening. Get a hobby already.

That's not what he said, that's how idiots misinterpret it.

That's not what he said, that's a double post.

Newton never said "what goes up must come down." That is an extreme over-simplification of a complex hypothesis.

Evolution has been proven, and you are unaware of the definition of scientific theory. Even if he meant what you mean by theory, it would be irrelevant. Science deals with evidence, not what individuals say or believe. Evolution is not proven in the same way that gravity isn't proven. (in fact, we know a great deal more about evolution than we do about gravity). Science doesn't deal with proof.

I wish there was a handy Morbo-esque picture we could use for when people don't know the meanings of theory/law/hypothesis in science.

Indeed, there IS more evidence to support Christianity... but, unfortunately, they were all copied on gold leaves, some of which were eaten by a seven-headed dragon, and the rest of which were taken to LaLah Land by an angel.

Countless semi-literate Christian idiots posting complete crap on the Internet is not proof of creation. It is proof only that there are countless idiots with Internet access.

A scientific theory is a series of statements about the causal elements for a real world observation, these include explanations and predictions that can be tested. Usually, theories are large bodies of work that has resulted from many contributors and are often built up over time. They unify the scientific community's view and approach to a particular scientific field. For example; biology has the theory of evolution and cell theory, geology has plate tectonic theory and cosmology has the Big Bang. The development of theories is a key element of the scientific method as they are used to make predictions about the world, and if the predictions fail, the theory is revised. Theories are the main goal in science and no explanation can achieve a higher "rank" (contrary to the belief that "theories" become "laws" over time).
That's the third time i've had to post that quote.

Evolution has been demonstrated in a lab. You lose.

"what comes up must come down."
Everybody past five knew that.

Newton didn't discover gravity, he tested it and locked in the absolutes. He defined it.

Darwin also defined biological drift, others had noticed the similarities and differeces before, Darwin explained that. We've been breeding livestock for at least 6000 years, we know the offspring can change from breeding to breeding.

Newton never totally explained what gravity is. We haven't yet.
