    No they really do not.

    lol.

    Saying science folks don't use the scientific method is like saying baseball players don't play baseball games. If science folks aren't using scientific method, then they aren't science folks.

    There's bad science out there. There are bad scientists who make inaccurate claims by running bad experiments and using faulty data. Some have been known to falsify data.

    Some baseball players have been known to cheat or strike out with the bases loaded in a close game in late innings. Some major leaguers have been known to drop easy-to-catch pop flies. Once upon a time, major leaguers would purposely lose games due to gambling interests.

    But they still played the game. See what I'm getting at here?

    Probably not. But it's still entertaining chatting with you.

    We see it the same way. The difference is you give a larger pass to theScience(tm) folks than you should based on your definition. Do you get it? Probably not, but at least we can be done with this.

    Yeah. I think we were talking about the best way to actually know whether something is true or real. There’s science. It sure isn’t perfect but it’s the best we’ve got.

    He doesn't like science. He should stop using his computer.

    Very clever, painting broad and anonymous strokes. Very clever. Meaningless, but clever.

    I know precisely what they mean.

    No one on this site has made himself so quickly as pathetically distasteful as you. Clearly, it has been your intention from the start to have other posters despise you (in effect, you create the means for flagellation — hence, “self-flagellation”) because it makes you feel like a martyr to whatever unsavory cause you allegedly espouse. It all adds up to some sort of variation on good old masochism.

    And maybe it is just a coincidence, but I note that christianty has a long history of attracting this kind of people.

    Funny how you'd rather rabble on than to be accurate. I'm not here to please people. Just the facts.

    Please take a moment and show me where I attacked your religious belief as you accused me of. It's all you and folks like you can do. attack without basis. Shocking that you all get along so well.
