[MSNBC]DNA is directly photographed for the first time - Page 8

post #71 of 82
I remember somewhere on PBS or something some guy had an electron microscope or something like that, and he said he was showing us ATOMS, which I quickly realized was BS. But he appeared to be zooming in for only a short time and then boom, bunch of dots.... was this just a mega troll or something?

Meh......believe what you want. At least *I* know the truth behind this Science farce.

Have fun with that computer hobby of yours. You know the one that relies entirely on the ability of science to make accurate predictions about the natural world.

That is a foolish comment. I did not say that all guesses were wrong.

Read up on your history. You will see what I mean and come to the same conclusion.

You mean the farce that, with the utmost humility, has eliminated diseases from the world and has lead to the creation of almost everything you use? I suggest you read my first response. As a scientist myself, I am telling you, right here, right now, there is no truth in science. No scientist claims to know the truth. No scientist even uses the word "prove". Evidence suggests the validity of certain hypotheses and theories, which are regarded as the best explanation supported by the data. Don't speak for the scientific community when you don't know the first thing about science.

I'll read up on history if you open up a science book. You have no idea what you are talking about, unless if you mean guessing as the ability to make predictions.

I was literally speechless for a minute or two after reading this.

What does guessing have to do with anything? How does that make anything less credible than anything else? Who ever claimed that science is the absolute truth? Whoever told you that is not a scientist.

"Guessing" is only part of it. You don't just throw ideas up on a wall, throw darts at them, choose to believe whatever idea you hit and call it science. You don't pick ping pong balls out of a jar, you don't draw ideas out of a hat, you don't flip a coin and believe whatever idea you happen to have stuck on to the winner. The ideas have to be verified over and over again. If you can't reproduce the results, its not science. What does it even matter where the ideas come from? Some have been stumbled upon on accident, but that does not make it any less valid, because they have stood up to the scientific process.

Science has been proven false before. But the thing is science does not claim to be 100% perfect and true. If you believe that, you don't understand what science is. I mean, at any point in time we know more than we knew 10 years ago, so that statement could NEVER be true. It is simply our best understanding of the observable universe, and certainly the more we can observe, the more we will learn. We will learn more than we knew yesterday. How could anyone think that is a bad thing? When we learn more than we did before, science doesn't hold on to the old ideas claiming them to be true in the face of opposing evidence. Science takes that evidence and updates our knowledge of the universe.


Do you really think we were able to send a rover to Mars on a farce? To send probes out to every planet in our solar system, take pictures, scan the planets and various moons, and send data back to Earth? All on "guesses?" Those are some damn good guesses. I need to find whoever guessed all the calculations needed to make that possible and hit the casino with them rolleyes.gif

One last thing: No scientist would ever blindly believe anything to be true, or they would not be a scientist. Science is not based on belief.
