Using the scientific method doesn't accurately help us assess what is objectively good or bad. What is good for one person can be bad for others. Unfortunately we can't avoid cultural bias. For example, some religions do not allow them to have blood transfusions even if it benefits them. They're willing to sacrifice their health to benefit their moral principles. And who's to say which is right or wrong, better or worse?
Objectivity has its own merits but impossible to apply without a universal system to allow it. And that what limits reality because each of us see reality differently. We are a diverse population. We are not clones of each other.
Even in the scientific community, for instance, there are competing theories for a given subject no matter each theory has attempted to use the scientific method.
So goodluck with that.

There's no such thing as "meteoric coal". However, if I were to have found a good size nickle-iron meteor in my stocking, would have been extremely pleased!

Why don't we pull the no-true-Scotsman plea?
If the Connecticut school shooter was embarrassing to Evolutionists, then let's say that he wasn't a true Evolutionist.

Creationists always bring Haeckel's name up, so let's say that Haeckel wasn't a true Evolutionist.

I know, I was joking and the Dude knows an agate isn't a meteor either. I have a collection of agates with pictures in them, for real!

Actually it's - histrionic (hysterical) personality disorder.
Symptoms include emotional excitability, such as irrational angry outbursts or tantrums; abnormal craving for activity and excitement; overreaction to minor events; manipulative threats and gestures; egocentricity; inconsiderateness; inconsistency; and continuous demand for reassurance generated by feelings of helplessness and dependency. A person with this disorder is perceived by others as vain, demanding, superficial, self-centered, and self-indulgent. The disorder is more prevalent in women than in men.
You have a Julian Assagne rewrite what has already been written type problem, don't you.

Give it up. You quoted the disorder incorrectly while insulting another, and got called out on it.
Grow the flock up, face reality and just admit YOU were wrong about it.

No you do not.

You may have a collection of agates with minerals encased within it that TO YOU suggests an image.....but it is not a 'picture'.

Have you heard of a Rorschach ("Inkblot") test?

Stop accusing me of justifying these heinous crimes. I just happen to 'understand' what drives humans to do certain things. comprende?
SOME humans have the ability of SELF control... as well as the ability to listen to a little thing called a conscience-in knowing right vs wrong (including in the areas of "Do Unto other others, as one would wish to be treated themselves" per say) BETTER than others.

FACT.

For the ones that DON'T and only wish to USE some lame "we're all animlas" EXCUSE to try and justify thier own NOT as good "behavior"-oh well..that's their problem, NOT anyone elses!!!!!!!!!!

Lets just say, that no TRUE Christian would not kill another on the grounds of their beliefs...

But on the other hand Evolutionists have no such qualms.

Degrading the deaths of children just for your own political agenda, you disgust me, especially since you base it on a lie, from a site of people who are so vile they have to do the same thing. You lessen the value of life lost through your own idiocy, which you do simply because you are insecure about your own ideas, you know you're wrong, but you need that excuse to justify doing vile things like this.

Wrong. From your favorite source, Wikipedia:

"Rejection of the state religion was tantamount to treason. This was the context for Rome's conflict with Christianity, which Romans variously regarded as a form of atheism and novel superstitio."
