No. Just like those that follow unquestioningly the ancient texts of their religions and the uninformed opinions of their fellow adherents.

People are still allowed to disagree with an opinion aren't they?

Oh you bad bunny! Lol.
Thank you for acknowledging my point but I was hoping you would argue with me some more because I had another scenario where I painted my self all pink and God said thou shall not be pink. Anyway it was going to be a good one!
So that is how you win an argument. Get me to thinking about you all painted pink. Well played.

That's exactly the truth, and it has been the only way we have been able to learn the truth.
Without the meticulous examination of evidence and recording it testing it and reexamining it, we would never understand anything.
Galileo studied Saturn, he could see it rings but couldn't make out what they were.
He thought they were like ears and drew two circles beside it on the left and right.
He never figured it out, but we eventually did, and now have moved to even greater mysteries of Saturn.

When we say that scientific knowledge is not completely certain and there is always a chance that new information will change the view of science, seems to be misinterpreted as science doesn't know anything and what we know now isn't correct. It is qualified, and it is true that new information could come along to change our view, it doesn't mean it is mandated to do so. What science knows may be correct ultimately, it is just that there is no way to say that with 100% certainty.

This strength of science is considered a weak point of attack showing that the attackers don't understand what that means.

As you say, we now know more about Saturn than Galileo did, but it is still there and the view that Galileo saw as ear-like we now know as rings. That doesn't change the fact that Galileo saw something peculiar around the planet. I am trying to load the video from the link you posted. Ah there we go.

Thanks.

has that reduced the rate of deaths? People are still dying daily, because it is inevitable.

Reduction, accelaration, etc, death is still death.

<quoted text>Charles. Christianity has been around for 2000 years and to my knowledge there are none alive today over 150 years of age. However, 2000 years ago the average life span was on the order 30 years or so. This remained the case until the 19th Century and coincides with the development of science and science-driven medicine and public health. Now the average lifespan is over 70 years of age and approaching 80. Additionally, the number of centenarians in developed countries is on the rise and is expected to consist of over 5 million people in the next 30 years.
I agree with you that there is much that we do not know and have yet to learn, but it would appear that science has been addressing the issue of increased lifespan and quality of life as well. The population alive today has a greater proportion living well than in any other time in history. I consider this a positive development of science, but the down side is that we get over population, pollution, depletion of resources, global climate change and so on. This is where people of all positions need to come together and use compassion, wisdom, belief and the efforts of science to find conclusions. While science has to driven by evidence, how the findings are used requires that other ways the world is viewed be considered and weighed.
Well said, but can it be stopped? I hope you the answer.

As do we. Just because something is an opinion does not make it free from criticism or response.

Irrelevant. YOU are the one that uses the words, so explain what *you* mean when you use them. I told you how *I* use the words. You see, definitions can be helpful for conversation and getting ones that we can agree with can even lead to mutual understanding.

BET you like inevitably dying at 80 years more than at 45 years, DON'T you?
Utter idiot answer.

It is the sheer inability and even unwillingness to admit your wrong.

Science is accomplishing more in any random few decades than your caboodle religion in its entire 4,100 years. Among those accomplishments is a major gain in longevity.

That is exactly why I specially for you not brush my teeth to breathe bad smelling words.
