@Drnaline,
:rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh: :rollinglaugh:

I'm wondering if townhall.com is a blog site or a comedy site.

If liberalism is an addiction, conservatism is a religion.

@Numpty,
Does it surprise anyone that the author of this article has no qualifications in any academic field to make such an assessment? :dunno:

Point is that the author has about as many academic qualifications as I do, yet you don't see me writing articles for CNN or some other news source.

You made the statement, are you not able to back it up with evidence?

If not was it then a personal observation and nothing more?

I wouldn't say "able" i'd say "willing" is closer to it.

Do you not "believe" the observations of Darwin?

The "diff" is that this is a debate forum not a news source.

Nouning a verb again, are we?

To 'believe' something is different from having a 'belief' in something.

I believe the sky is blue. Turns out it is.

I believe water is wet. Yup.

Fire burns? I believe so.

Again, this is your attempt to incorrectly define something. Scientists do not "believe" something or have a "belief" in something. We accept the observations and research. That's the word you're looking for.

Of course I could always ask if you believe in gravity. Do you, you Newtonist?

I believe in the science, which is tested, retested and conclusions drawn from the evidence collected. When scientists conduct multiple tests independantly of each other with the same results, this constitutes as fact.

We do not believe. We accept.
