how arrogant is science....THose people over there, including Mr Ventril Loquist, Mr Smith and Mr FrechFried Potatoe With Glasses seem to impose their knowledge to the rest of the human kind...This is far arrogant...as we know that they do not know how the Egyptians or Mayas managed to build up their Pyramids.

How can you compare ancient architecture with quantum physics?

Historic science has a very good idea about the way the pyramids probably have been built. And it doesn´t include anything supernatural.

Hawking and Co don´t need to know anything about it btw. because their field ist astrophysics and not history. It is sufficient if Profs in History know about it ;)

how arrogant is science

Only humans are arrogant, science deals with facts, not emotions.

"This is far arrogant"

The irony is strong with this one!

And how arrogant are you to assert that these men who have spent their lives studying nature and the stars (i.e. REALITY) know no more about the subject than you do?

The hell?

a mind far far away

So, Physics=Architecture? What? And how is science arrogant? How do facts based in reality show emotion? And what point do you prove in making fun of a guy in a wheelchair? And exactly how is science, based on what's real, ignore reality? And how come fundies haven't yet learned basic grammar?

Edit: I just noticed this prick's name. You ARE NOT Goku, fuckwad.

Sir Arthur C Clarke is also dead. Died Columbo, Sri Lanka, 19 March 2008. One out of three is bad superwhatever.

And yet, Stephen Hawking -- "Mr FrechFried Potatoe With Glasses" [sic] -- *still* manages to outsmart you!

And WTF, "potatoe"? Taking spelling lessons from Dan Quayle is a *bad* idea.

National Geographic just came out with a blurb that may explain the concept used to build the pyramids. No one imposes knowledge. If you don't want to or can't learn something, its just a sad fact.

One who uses the Dan Quayle spelling for "potato" has no leg to stand on when disparaging some of the great minds of our time.

Actually, someone figured out how to leverage up huge concrete blocks with little more than wedges of wood. So, uh, that part PHAIL.

"how arrogant is science...."

It's not arrogant when you have evidence to back it up.

"THose people over there, including Mr Ventril Loquist, Mr Smith and Mr FrechFried Potatoe With Glasses seem to impose their knowledge to the rest of the human kind...This is far arrogant..."

How cute.

"as we know that they do not know how the Egyptians or Mayas managed to build up their Pyramids."

Of course we do. The Egyptians left a number of wall murals depicting how it was done. It wouldn't surprise me if the Mayans did the same, though they were a bit less obsessive about recording everything so they may not have.

"In short, those Sagans, Hawkins, and whatever they are called, ignore the reality? they are living (that doesnt count for Sagan now)"

I don't have a single fucking clue what that, er... sentence is supposed to convey.

What is it with fundie idiots? and putting question marks in the middle of? sentence?

There seems to be a system to it, but I can't get it. The question marks are not put like commas, ie where you'd expect a 'short break' in the text. They seem to be placed mostly at nouns or some 'important word' in the sentence, but beyond that, I'm at a loss.

I just love how compassionate this person is regarding disability! Another marvelous example of Christian love.

So says the creationist, who can't even understand why the bible is a direct contradiction to reality.

Wow. Calling Stephen Hawking "Mr Ventril Loquist" is amazingly insulting. DIAF.

They probably don't know that because they aren't historians.

There's so much fail in this there's so little we can say...

1. Science is not arrogant. You are arrogant; after all, who is it who insists everyone who doesn't believe what they do should?

2. They can indeed explain the pyramids. Any rational person can.

When you're in love you want to tell the whole world. This book is a reflection of my life-long love affair with science.
