I can only go back 6000 years, early then that there wasn't anything. No universe,no time, no space no DNA.
Just plan old nothing.

You can be a cousin with anything you wish. All of my cousins are human just like me. No apes here.

It's the same as trying to lessen your integrity.
How could YOU lessen your non-existent integrity?

Oh, yes, and tell us again about your “respect”, lol

The included link is a report from December 20, 2012, on the myth that science is “self correcting”.

Data falsified, questionable research, etc.

Tilburg University published their report,“Flawed Science”(lol).

Science evan managed to find “significant” significant evidence for the laughable hypothesis that listening to a Beatles music could make you years younger. LMAO

What did scientists do about the report? Were they concerned? No....they fought back.

Or this one:
"BRIAN GREENE: It's a little known secret but for more than half a century a dark cloud has been looming over modern science. Here's the problem: our understanding of the universe is based on two separate theories. One is Einstein's general theory of relativity—that's a way of understanding the biggest things in the universe, things like stars and galaxies. But the littlest things in the universe, atoms and subatomic particles, play by an entirely different set of rules called, "quantum Mechanics"
These two sets of rules are each incredibly accurate in their own domain but whenever we try to combine them, to solve some of the deepest mysteries in the universe, disaster strikes.
Take the beginning of the universe, the "big bang." At that instant a tiny nugget erupted violently. Over the next 14 billion years the universe expanded and cooled into the stars, galaxies and planets we see today. But if we run the cosmic film in reverse, everything that's now rushing apart comes back together, so the universe gets smaller, hotter and denser as we head back to the beginning of time.
As we reach the big bang, when the universe was both enormously heavy and incredibly tiny, our projector jams. Our two laws of physics, when combined, break down."
Thank you for that post, KJV......

Tell Langoliers hello.....and keep up your good work.

Why isn't science “self correcting”?

Wouldn't it be ideal if science corrected their own errors?

Why do they fail to do so?

It's distrubing as to why science is always excused, while other professionals are helf accountable for their errors.

Carl Sagan described science as “self correcting”.

No, Mr. Sagan, it doesn't quite work that way, lol.

Get real!!!

So many failures in science are not discovered for a very lonnnngggg time; others perhaps never.

Sloppy techniques, fraudulent research......

It would take months of additional research from other scientists to confirm the first groups' results.

Scientists don't want to do the research; they assume the original experiments are “foregone conclusions” and basically just do not invest the time to replicate the experiments.

More details are found in the included link.

Well, that's thoughtful of you, Hill, but I don't have any interest in suppositions and presumptions. That's what the theory of evolution is based on, lol.
I'm sorry you were a miserable person. Sounds like you still are.
Now, I was somewhat less miserable or inattentive in Biology class (though not by much) where the "Theory" of Evolution was aptly demonstrated in a Petri dish. It's a "theory" in name only, unlike your religion which exists solely within the minds of it's practitioners.

I'm just cast'n my pearls, you can take 'em or leave 'em.

Because math blows evolution and the Big Bang and spontaneous life generation right out of the water.

Mathematically none of those could have happened.

<quoted text>Let's start with the "Facts" your Bible Claims;
1. God is omnipotent
2. God is omniscient
3. God is omnipresent
4. God has a message for all people.

That's what your bible claims right?

OK, so why couldn't your God write down this message himself or otherwise leave a message where all can find it?
There are only a few possibilities to consider;

1. He didn't know how.=> He's not God.
2. He wasn't powerful enough.=> He's not God.
3. He did but someone hid it.=> God doesn't know where it is, could not have known it would be hidden => He's not God.
4. He did but someone destroyed it.=> God didn't know that would happen and could not prevent it => He's not God.
5. He did but man is too limited to understand the message => God didn't make his creatures so they would understand his message AND he didn't write his message so his creatures could understand it => He's not God.
6. God doesn't really have a message for all humans => The bible is completely wrong and does not describe God properly i.e. The God described in the bible does not exist.

There, ONCE AGAIN!! Solid Proof the God described in the Bible does not exist.
Solid, but you forget how dense a skull it has to penetrate.

Yup!

You can believe in God and be wrong
Or you can believe there is no God and be wrong.
