Oh yeah, also here's an interesting news story. I'm glad the judge was sane and rational. http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/Global/story.asp?S=13569794
It's just a matter of being rational. It's a dumb theory. Do people check on your religious status? That's crazy. I find it hard to think "oh they do it because they care". If somebody set my car on fire to protect me from the demons inside I wouldn't think "aw, that's a nice thought.". It's a hard line to walk, not being disrepectful to an individual even though I have no respect for the idea.
Also I think one of the biggest misunderstandings people have about science is that it's not religion. Where as one speaks in absolutes, the other speaks in probability. I think the human mind likes black and white thinking, so thinking of objectivity in terms of probability doesn't come naturally.
I like numbers because at the very least it seperates the rationists from the empericists in a conversation. If one person says "This is how it works because this makes sense when I say it!" I am less impressed than with the one that says "Well here are ten peer reviewed studies with included methodologies so you can check yourself".
We have terrible science education in the US, which is to blame for...well alot. If a study comes out with a footnote saying "there is a slight correlation between bacon consumption and cancer but it's within the margin of error" it gets filtered through the media as "BACON=CANCER"
You sick, sick bear. I knew it would have to be somebody with a pedobear avatar that would ask what to do with a CD. You know what you do with a CD? You listen to music, good healthy, well adjusted music. And then you kiss your mother with that mouth.
