That's an improvement Dave! You went three posts without your bloated narcissism getting in the way! Keep up the good work! I'm sure your theism will make you a better human being yet.<quoted text>
You tried to present that in a factual manner, And failed.
The fact that religion is so prevalent in their society has nothing to do with their progress in nuclear physics, which necessarily requires the application of the scientific method.Iran is engaged in nuclear physics, and other fields of science. A rather theistic society, don't you think? Of course they may not employ that scientific method as YOU think they should.
Dang Dave, that was a rookie logical mistake. What did you think was going on over there? Did you think they were refining nuclear materials by repeating passages from the Quran over them and praying? LOL!
I haven't encountered it then. Seems to me then by your own logic if you really believed that you would not be so smug about people who have not shared your anecdotal experiences.The hand may be real or not. You won't find out unless you encounter it.
My not knowing that the spider wasn't there doesn't mean it wasn't. Critical thinking skills. They are very important.Such happens all the time in the physical world. You didn't know that snake or spider was there until it bit you. Oh, you heard about them. But.
"What you were trying to say is" = "I feel more confident arguing with a straw man of my own creation than having a real debate"What you were trying to say is facts aren't facts unless you say they are and they agree with your views.
That's kinda sad and cowardly, don't you think, Dave?
