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.

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.

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.

Let's start with the facts of evolution;
1).
1) Biota on this planet changes over time. This is an indisputable fact. We refer to this change as "biological evolution."

2) Our best current understanding of the mechanics that drive this change is called the "theory of biological evolution". Any explanation that allows us to model the mechanics of this change will be called the "theory of biological evolution".

3) This understanding is ALWAYS up for revision should a better model come along. However, such a better model would have to provide more accurate TESTABLE predictive capability than our current model or else it is worthless and we are better off keeping our current model.

Wrong again.
" A place of weeping and gnashing of teeth - And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matthew 25:30).
A place of outer darkness - "Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matthew 22:13).
A place of torments - "And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom" (Luke 16:23).
A place of Sorrows - "The sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of death prevented me;" (2 Samuel 22:6).
A place of everlasting destruction - "Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;" (II Thessalonians 1:9).
A place where men are tormented with fire and brimstone - "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death" (Revelation 21:8).
A place where fire is not quenched - "Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched" (Mark 9:44).
A bottomless pit - "And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit" (Revelation 9:2).
A place of no rest - "And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name" (Revelation 14:11).
It is ultimately a lake of fire - "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death" (Revelation 20:14).
A place of hopeless of unsatisfied desires - "And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame " (Luke 16:24). The rich man wanted water but could not get any."
Makes you wonder about the nervous system of a soul and what makes it heavy that it can fall into a bottomless pit that is also a lake of fire. And weeping without tears and such...

Well... i guess if you think about it as a non-believer its all strange fiction and it sounds ridiculous because it is.... and if you are a christian you can't question it... but if you do it's ok.... you can make up whatever answer you want because its all magic and whatever you come up with was what god put in your heart and it doesn't matter how different your answers are from other christians because they were obviously fooled by SATAN...... BOO!

Are you going to explain what went wrong with you? Get dropped on your head at a young age? I guess that would not be too long ago in your case.
Go back to your comic books.
You're the one who said the Bible is perfect.

You also said that the Bible is amended every time a new document is found.

We can't believe a word you say.

Which is all your religion happens to be.
