Science versus Religion, or the Psychopathology of Faith.



As you can see, the above flow chart is an accurate diagram of how science works. An idea or an hypothesis is posited, then tested experimentally. If the experimental evidence doesn’t accord with the hypothesis, then most scientist will make another run or two at it just in case something was wrong with the experiment. But if a number of experiments don’t confirm the hypothesis, the hypothesis is abandoned or modified and the experiments start again. If the evidence does confirm the hypothesis, then a new and useful piece of knowledge has been added to the sum of knowledge. That is science.

Now, compare the flow chart for religion:-



Notice the difference?

To the rip-off merchant and conman creep who posted a comment under this blog entry using the name of “bernard n. shull” (sic) - fuck off! I don't know you, have never exchanged a word with you - regarding what you opaquely refer to as my "thing" - irrespective of whatever you meant by that – and neither have I ever had any dealings with you whatsoever. Not only will I not be visiting the link you posted here, but I have removed your whole comment so that you will attract no visitors to your dubious enterprises through the medium of my blog.
