There is nothing at all de facto about science.
Glad we're on the same page. Keep this in mind next time somebody attempts to hint at the notion that viewing the planet as simply a three dimensional sphere in space is not only a dated perspective, but also an extremely limiting one.
We know what we know (how could we know more?)
"We" don't know anything, as you and I obviously have quite different backgrounds. However both of us
thirst to know more and we will.
We don’t have biblical de facto plagues anymore.
Mankind itself is behind most of the plagues that it suffers from. Is politics a religion or a science?
If there is some medicinal information in there somewhere I haven’t been able to find it? There are countless biblical atrocities that are only kept at bay from the non-religious folks that just want to live their own lives in peace. On the contrary, history teaches that the churches of the day did everything in their power to convince the people (they were supposed to protect and guide) that these maladies were vindictives from their merciful gods to punish all for not complying with their proper religious beliefs.
A book, and what people do with it, are two entirely different matters. Personally I was able to derive quite a bit of historical and psychological insight from the text.
At what point in the history of man do you think the widespread application of anesthetics came into being particularly for the common man? There were some breakthroughs in the 18th century but they were for the most part dropped. In the 19th century they started experimenting on the potential of ether to ease the pain of surgery. I don’t think that Nicolaus Copernicus (16th century) and Galileo Galilei (17th century) would believe you either just to mention the views of someone who actually lived within the church lie.
Healers have been practicing anesthesiology for thousands of years.
Well I don't ceare much for elitists who considers themselves as inerrant as the religious folk do.
Most religious folk I know consider themselves quite erred, including myself. Every day brings new struggles, and growth.
Now I understand where you are popping in from and why you would redirect the OP.
Where am I "popping in from", and how exactly am I redirecting the OP?
A joke right? If a discovery is made in the future (that won’t be it)
Why are you so quick to dismiss a discovery that you haven't even attempted to make yet?
then we will have learned a thing or two and we can make adjustments as necessary. You seem to think we are going to discover something profound that will disprove science as we know it, poppycock.
"We" (people performing experiments), are doing this every day. Einstein disproved Newton's theory of gravity. I thought we agreed that "science isn't defacto"?
You are just as brash thinking there will be some discovery based on nothing but conjecture that you just cannot put your finger on ... that we should stymie progress (or whatever you call it) and wait for the great discovery? That is no different than waiting till one dies to reap their proposed benefits … after they are dead.
Well good for you, sadly this post is just about Christianity and their failed attempts to pass Creationism off as fact. If you want to discuss something else then at least be considerate enough to make that fact known before you go denigrate things.
I might ask you to be so considerate in your denigrating of the intelligent design theory, but I really don't care what you do. The fact that you feel my contributions to the thread diminish the value of it's content in any way tells me nothing more than how little you care for this "conversation". Honestly, the thread feels more like a support group for insecurity. Please clarify your goals, but only if you are actually interested in discussing the theory of intelligent design, or relativity, or anything other than the unsupported assertion that Christianity at it's core is ignorant. Ignorance comes in all shapes and sizes, and from all walks of life. I really don't care to discuss the matter.
The thing about viewpoints is that there are almost 7 billion of them and they are all unique if for no other reason than they aren’t yours.
I might actually buy this shirt if I saw it hanging in a store.
If you are truly interesting in these lines of thought, I recommend the authors Amit Goswami, and P.D. Ouspensky's "Tertium Organum", just to name a couple.
