i just hate it when the plus and minus level of error can exceed 1 billion years.
just one free trip around the sun each year is a long time.
i sometimes wonder if we will ever come to a consensus?
I don't think so Gus.
Step 1 - Question. The "thing" that you want to know. The question you want to answer.
Step 2 - Research. Conduct research. ...
Step 3 - Hypothesis.
Step 4 - Experiment. Test the hypothesis.
Step 5 - Observations. Data you collect during the experiment.
Step 6 - Results/Conclusion.
Step 7 - Communicate. Present/share your results. Replicate.
That last word in the last step is the stickler. Your conclusions MUST be able to be Replicated...under the SAME conditions.
This is a problem for both sides of the issue. One cannot replicate
creation or evolution, nor can we create the same conditions
in which either event, or series of events supposedly took place.
It seems to me that the arguments...on both sides...involve Faith and Dogma. Dogma in the sense that one must accept the proposition. And, Faith in the sense that one must believe the proposition.
Just trying to be fair to both sides.
