Ice-loss has been going on for some time with developers filling in massive marsh lands etc. The theory sounds more criminal than scientific.

Nothing like PhD programs on the dole for funding...you get mixed corrupt results. Big problem.

Ahh scientific fact. Actually scientist make correcttions to errors to find more errors to make corrections to their corrections to discover their correction were in error.

It was once said by a scientist that 20 scientists will agree to agree to something to whatever it takes to get enough work for all.
In 1975 we were told that potatoes was no good for us and many years later more scientists told us it was a mistake.
Fluoride in drinking water told safe even though prior scientists told us it is poison .
Scientists are responsible for more harm to all living things seeing they mix the drugs that either mask out pain or kill us.

How do we know that Albert Einstein was as he was describes as seeing he worked in the patent office having access to all filled patents that had been forgot of from years gone by so how do we know that he didn't plagerize their property ?
He got so intelligent that he was the only one who could understand himself.
Scientists would have joined in, in fear they would be left out.

Science is the process of discovery. Each new discovery has to be studied to determine how it fits with what we already know. Sometimes what we discover completely changes what we already 'know'. Sometimes what we discover defines more completely what we already 'know'.

Thermodynamics, 1st law, second law, third law and zeroth law. Turns out there was something to know before the 1st law, but wasn't discovered until after the third so we have the zeroth law of thermodynamics.

Science is an adventure, a journey, it's not a destination because every time we 'get there', we can see there's more to discover.

In that sense, you are correct.

Pompous tit.

For you, science means putting your fingers in your ears and closing you eyes in a desperate attempt to avoid knowledge that conflicts with your world view.

No, Fair Game, that's not what I think. If you would spend more time with the science and less time worrying about what I think, you would most likely learn something.

Paradox, it's not your enemy, it's the door to a wondrous world.

How laughable, insulting and downright wrong to be lectured on science by somebody so incompetent at assessing it and so unwilling to accept where it leads.

Were you talking to the mirror again?

It was intended to be insulting. Isn't that what you intended when you responded to my statement? Well back at ya.

Nope. Your insult is unintentional, and you have no awareness of it, for you have not the wit.
