Now your are throwing religion at me. If you don't get
your way, you're on a person like a stink on a skunk! Can't
you stop calling me names? So far, I am, according to you,
a pompous asshole, a troll, a fortune teller, a gaslighter,
and a nasty woman. Wow. A tantrum or what? Calm down and
debate without calling names, please.
Now, where were we? Oh yes. You have a hissy fit if
anyone criticizes science. I never said it was all useless.
I said it was the fad that was considered the answer to
everything circa 1975-2020. The fad was it replaced everything
else. It's still highly valid but is not the answer to
everything. This belief was the be-all and end-all in the
1980s when it peaked. That's what I said. I never said it
couldn't answer many things. But it's time to admit it will
not explain everything, regardless of how much anyone wants
it to or how long we wait.
Line them up: Weinberg, Crick, Hawking, Dawkins, Darwin, etc.
They all came and went with the same old refrain. "We KNOW that
science is the answer." It ain't, Skipper. It's a component of
the answer. I believe a significant part, but to claim it will
tell you, or anyone in the future, the complete knowledge of
everything is BS. Pure, 100%, made in Alberta BS.
I don't know what will tell us. It's not science or
organized religion. I don't think we'll ever know. But, for
some reason, you insist that I agree with you, or I'm one of
the names in the first paragraph I typed above. So what, exactly,
is wrong with you this past week or so?
You are pretty aggressive, to say the least. Be a nice fellow.
maybe you'll get a new computer or another gadget for Christmas!
If not, I'm betting on a lump of coal. :-)
