geom_00: And Ken Ham is now outlawing ALL dogs.


Ken Ham is fine with admitting the existence of artificial selection; most of it is recent enough to count as "observational science" in his mind.

Dimensio: I assume that the second half of the episode will be providing equal time to the Creationist (specifically, young-Earth Christian creationism) point of view.


They're probably giving it proportional time. They think the universe was created six thousand years ago instead of 13.8 billion years ago, so they'll probably get about 15 milliseconds.

My real lesson from this episode looks to be that my husband is going to be eaten by a bear one day while wandering up to it and exclaiming "Puppy!" looking to pet it.  "It's got eyes, two ears, and fur, it's a puppy."

Pariah.: Ned Stark: Waldo Pepper: Why is science being packaged like it is a religion? Seems the music is right out of Demiles 10 Commandments.

Ultimately its the same shiat. A source for the Big Answers you're ultimately going to have to take on faith.

The priests of science are somewhat more reliable at producing miracles though.

One of the key elements of a proper scientific theory is reproducibility. If the scientific community cannot reproduce your experiments and results, your claims will not be accepted. No faith involved. And in many cases your average joe can reproduce the same experiments, with enough research. The claims of religion that must be taken on faith are very different. Reproducibility is one of the key differences.


Reproduction is overrated.

If you don't believe me, look at your parents and then look at yourself.
