Religious faith in science

Just read an article put on by a friend in facebook.


The problem the professor has is the political clout of the 'believers'-especially in the USA-which is overpowering enough for those who wish to remain in employment to keep quiet. Until more people like him have the guts [or stupidity] to come forward and address this problem then the 'believers' will-and have won-the argument.

    for photos some you can just copy and paste to new post or you may have to save pic download to your pc and then upload to blog.
    I assume you know how to insert image from toolbar in new post(the one next to link with pic in small square)

    As for youtube when you click share on video a embed code should be revealed you just copy code and paste into Edit HTL and not compose
    once code loaded into Edit HTL when you click on compose the Video should load but could take a little while.

    anyway try it and see what happens
    look for ward to your seeing a visually more interesting blog

  2. Niko,

    Thanks for that I'll have a go now and try it out.

  3. The argument between believers and this includes atheists too(of which I am), is there has to be a clear division between maintained between individual/private belief systems and public verifiable knowledge. The Professor has set a clear line in the sand to take a the argument too. E.g. can a statement be proven by existing scientific methodologies, e.g. fairies live at the bottom of my garden, can not be verified. As compared to my garden has a greater area of grass than yours, which can. If statements are unverifiable then they should remain out of the public realm and remain the belief of individuals.

  4. Tamlabam,

    Exactly. The problem is that there are not enough scientists and teachers willing to put their head above the parapet.
