Hey Kiddies I'm back!

Hey Kiddies I'm back!
August 02, 2016 06:20PM
Homo sapiens has had religion for tens of thousands of years and the species has had philosophy for thousands of years

But there’s only one method that has radical affected not only human thought but the biosphere.

Nothing in the 3-billion-year history of life has had an effect like the scientific method.

In 200 years it has changed life and the planet so incredibly … for better or for worse… that you have to be literally retarded to deny it.

Lovecraft wrote the greatest emotion is the fear and greatest fear is the fear of the unknown and this fear is the foundation of religion and philosophy.

Why has the scientific method dominated when it comes to searching for the truth...

Without the unknown there would not be a scientific method. The scientific method thrives only when there are questions to answer, the beauty of our existence is that every time we answer a question we get a thousand more questions.

A true scientist loves that @#$%&. A scientist loves it so much they will be irresponsible unethical abhorrent just to get to the truth.

The scientific method is the truth the way and the light. It is the only way.

It’s a game with unlimited levels. And each level is harder than the next and it goes on forever. The best game ever.

Some of the greatest minds in history have not been able to cope with this. Even the greatest minds can only reach a certain level and some get overwhelmed They are bedazzled and perplexed. And they give up and turn to deities.

Hey but that the story of the homo sapiens. Stories are easy but science is hard.

Hey FF welcome back!!!

How are things down in Aus?

Any thoughts on philosophy? I had a discussion lately with a former university director who denied the importance of philosophy in the face of science. I informed him that science is a philosophy and that it was philosophy that gave birth to the scientific method.

Welcome back FF. It's good to be back myself. I love this stuff.

I have to disagree that the scientific method is the only way. I mean looking at things as a scientist with doubt
& investigation is the best way, but not the only way. Recently I've studied Wicca, & it teaches blind faith is for
fools, knowledge is the right way. (Wicca means wise.)

That statement is as as obsurd as extreme Christians, muslims, & others arguing with nonbelievers that others
should convert.
