Yeah, you are the one that needs to learn the difference. The law of gravity is part of the theory of gravity, and it's proven to be more of a suggestion than a law, in reality. That's because laws are formulated by the theories, they are mathematical representations of the theory or part of the theory that hold true ... most of the time. We actually do have several laws in the theory of evolution, several mathematical models that predict outcomes based on the theory which have been put to good use and provided excellent results, better results, in fact, than the law of gravity. Rather ironic, no? Much of our modern tech is actually the product of some of the laws of evolution, like the portable technology used for iPhones, one of the more prominent examples.
To put it simply, the LAW of gravity says that if you drop something, it falls. The THEORY of gravity askes the question 'why?', which science is either unable to figure or or unable to agree on, which is why it's still in theory.

The point of the equation is to show that even if each assumption is exceedingly small, that due to the vast number of stars involved, the possibility/probability of other life is significant.

Thanks for the lesson in American English just a few days too late. I suppose the type of woman you are used to then?
Nope, I've never been with a slut. Never have, never will.
Yes you, you spew hate and expect the response to be all goddy goody – get real…
What hate do I spew? Be specific.
What?

Still hooked on crack and vodka then?
Nope. Never done crack, never even seen it. Vodka? Eh, once in a while, but I haven't had vodka in years.

Why Isn't Evolution Considered a Law?

This is an issue which often confuses the general public, as the two words, theory and law, have very different common meanings. But in science, their meanings are very similar. A theory is an explanation which is backed by "a considerable body of evidence," while a law is a set of regularities expressed in a "mathematical statement." This is why Newton's Laws of Motion are referred to as laws and not theories. They are expressed with simple equations (like f = ma for his 2nd Law of Motion). Evolution, and most of Biology, cannot be expressed in a concise mathematical equation, so it is referred to as a theory. A scientific law is not "better" or "more accurate" than a scientific theory. A law explains what will happen under certain circumstances, while a theory explains how it happens.

So yes there are laws of evolution, you’d be wise to leant that before shouting your mouth off on subjects you don’t understand

Just because you are a godbot does not mean your get to change the meaning of scientific terminology

I will say again for the hard of understanding - But when did scars prove reality? You seem unable to provide a coherent answer so instead opt for the incredulity card, how very christian of you.

Funny that and neither have I nor am I one but your foul christian mouth suggested so – you sick christian hate merchant.

Just look back at you posts,“tramp” come to mind?

What what?

We have your word for that? So you are back on the meths from the bron paper bag then?

Oh sorry I assumed you assumed I was a tramp?

Calling a tramp a tramp isn't hate speech, no more than calling a good wife a good wife is peace speech. It's an acknowledgement of the truth, nothing more.

How did my "foul Christian mouth" suggest anything? Will you relax already? A tramp stamp is called a tramp stamp for a reason, tramps have them. I didn't coin the phrase, but I do use it.

Scars prove the reality of scars. Is that so hard for you?

No, that's actually evidence of gravity, not the law, and certainly not even an absolute. It was the evidence that was used to formulate the theory of gravity, and why Newtonian gravity is also highly inaccurate and only functions within the effects of Earth's gravitational field, and only there. You need to catch up, Newtonian physics is now a novelty more than anything, used as a precursor for learning real physics.

A scientific theory is the explanation of how the facts fit together, just like a broken glass the theory is the glue that holds the pieces back in place. It begins with the observation, which is often evidence as well after the theory is fully matured. Each fact that is considered linked is analyzed, discarded if the fact proves unconnected to the hypothesis. Eventually the hypothesis is either discarded or becomes a theory ... or sometimes becomes part of a theory. The theory is not dependent on the parts of it, because the theory is not the assertion.

There you go with the "capitalizing it makes it mean something completely different" nonsense. If you are saying that "Law" is different than "law" then there is no "Law" of gravity either.

Yes it is hate speech, particularly if you meant the calling to offend and YOU DID mean it to offend. When you are intelligent enough to consider the ramifications then you will be more intelligent than you are now. Note that I won’t be holding my breath.

You accused me of being a tramp with no more knowledge of my life than your christian guess and inbred hatred of anything not riversideshithead, you did it for no other reason than to offend. That my dear little buttbrain shows nothing but hatred, the fact that you hide behind christianity to offend just shows how much you respect your faith.

Yes you use it, you use it to spew hatred, live with that fact that you are a hate merchant and you have effectively admitted to being a hate merchant

Honey, I am a digital artist, scars prove nothing, If I was feeling so inclined I could put a convincing scar across your BLT avatar in about 2 minutes flat.

Yes why not and while you are at it try proving that the one in my avatar is not real, as you claimed (or lied)

If you don’t like the consequences of you foul lying posts then I suggest you stop posting until that god given hatred subsides a little.

I disagree, but regardless, whatever the "problem" is gun nuts never want to resolve it, they just sit on their perch all cocky and loud mouthed and that just makes matters worst. Things can't go one like they have been. Sandy Hook was the straw that broke the camels back and I know know long time NRA members who have stopped their NRA registration over this. There are a "few" good gun owners with a conscience and hopefully they will help to find a reasonable solution.

Yes, I understand. It isn't an absolute, which is why it's still a theory and not a law.

That's what they said in Sandy Hook before last December. Anywhere there are guns there is the possibility for these problems. If you can't at least recognize that much truth, then you'll have to wait until it happens there, just a matter of time, and hopefully then your bubble of delusion will pop so you can start to be part of the solution, instead of just a mouth piece for the NRA.

"Newton's law of universal gravitation states that every point mass in the universe attracts every other point mass with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them."

THAT is the Law of Gravity.

It is an indisputable fact.
