Found this in The Progressive (October 2012) in their No Comment section. This is the type of comments that leaves one dumb founded of how much preposterous idiocy there's around.
Newton Made It Up."The theory of gravity is a theory..."
Music theory is just a theory, and has never stood up to scientific scrutiny. All that stuff you hear on the radio is just nonsense.
Yep. The fun thing is that you can substitute as following:
________ Made it Up
The theory of ________ is a theory....
It seems to always work. LOL
All that rocket science is just a theory, too. And medicine, jets, computers, round Earth, what stars are made of, genetics, germs...
Maybe we should start to call it the law of evolution. Maybe then it will hit home -_-
Yea you know like people just write things and they make them up we really should have a system to test things to see if they're valid and reliable I mean why haven't we done that yet...see me writing here...I'm just making this up as I go...I knew Darwin...he told me he made it up...The bible? Oh no that's the truth...Jesus talks to me every night you know...
*sigh* I don't even know where to start when I hear things like this.
Colleen, I can only hope your skull and desk are both sturdy because you probably bang one onto the other often.
The thought that leaped into my mind when I read your rendition of their ramblings was "we DO have such a system you fuckwit... it's called the SCIENTIFIC METHOD!!!!!!"
Haha, exactly the thought I was trying to provoke SteveinCO :)
The problem is that these sheeple are becoming our elected officials. So sad.
Believers will always confuse the two senses of "theory" because it creates the confusion behind which they hide. While both theories begin as speculation, one is used merely as a conjecture to be checked out. The other is as an organizing principle that proves its worth by its explanatory power and by its ability to suggest new conjectures to study and verify.
