HughBe---They are converts for whatever reason but it is certainly NOT scientific.<quoted text>
So, now that you have defined religion, your next project is to redefine science?
I'm not buying it. No more than I buy into your other definitions.
What comes to mind is a tiny minnow trying to swim upstream. Noble thought. But utterly useless, futile, and waste of all time.
Frijoles---So, now that you have defined religion, your next project is to redefine science?
HughBe--- I shall now define religion and it is a belief in gods or God or the supernatural.
Definition of SCIENCE it is the study of the "world" that we live in and so its pillars are VERIFIABLE, REPLICABLE, OBSERVABLE etc.
Science is NOT faith it is NOT religion and so for it to REVERSE its position on a matter e.g. the classification of homosexuality as a mental health disease it means that the pillars of science must have been applied and led to NEW scientific discoveries. What are these VERIFIABLE discoveries?
