which just goes to show you do not read my posts but simply infer what you think I've said Nor do I call your faith belief crap.Quote
Ray: Where do you get this crap?
which again obviously means you have not noticed the multiple times that I point out that I fully realise scientists NEVER say they have 100% proof.Quote
Scientists ask questions, pose and test hypotheses. If a hypothesis is affirmed, it is validated through replication. If it stands up to replication, it is considered to be affirmed--subject to further testing--but not "true."
See my comment immediately above. Please do not continue to make the mistake of thinking that I do not realise this proviso.Quote
For convenience, we call an affirmed and validated answer to a research question a "fact," knowing that it will either be improved, corrected, or completely rejected and replaced in the future.
Please remember that you have always failed to come up with any objective evidence of the god/whatever-it-is in which you hav a faith belief. You have expressed your belief epistemology or whatever you call it, but you seem to think that you can separate this faith belief from reality - I wonder which is more likely to go the way of the dodo? Your faith belief, or the 99.99recurring% of scientific facts?Quote
Remember, the finding is only as true as the research paradigm it is embedded in, and entire paradigms can go the way of the dodo bird:
Unless you can come up with the one 99.99recurring % fact which would validate your beliefs, and which would change things once and for all, you are on very shaky ground.
