As some of you may know, I'm not a big fan of science. Well, actually I am and so I would like scientists to start again from scratch with just a few of them sitting in a field, or a house, maybe a basic lab, with just a pen and paper for them to work out calculations an maths and stuff.
See if they can build up science as it was done in the past and maybe speed things up a bit and get things right.
Maybe a couple of them could sit under a tree waiting for an apple to all on their heads?
Of course, they will need people to help and resources so they can build things like steam engines and particle accelarators. I mean, if they did it all again from scratch then would they get to the same place we are at now?

Ok I just went out the back, and re-did science. I used a pear though, as I dont have any apples. And I also used a 9volt battery and zapped it across my tongue, because there is no lightening.

And when I jumped, man, i need to get fit.. but gravit still works.

Do you want me to put it into a PDF file and email it?

Or blog about it?

Cheers!

I see you don't even have a basic steam engine yet.

See if you took the scientific approach you'd think what is the yummy side? If you don't like jam you could have a sticky floor.

Does anyone else see the irony of writing this on a web forum, using technology created by Science?

I want slates, damnit, and cave drawings and charcoal figurines. I want lots of people dying through trial and error, poisoning and infection.
Give me your credulity, damn you, and infect me with your stone age mindset.

You're more than welcome to independently replicate the mountain of scientific research and progress that's already out there. If you find a genuine anomaly and you've really done your homework you can write up your results and get them published.

Well, as a chap, one has a sticky floor anyway. I mean come on, i turn my pants in side out to save on washing and sometimes even use the masking tape trick.

The job of science is to question everything. Science is never content that the predominant hypothesis or theory about some aspect of nature is perfect -- i.e., the job of science is to look for holes in those theories and attempt to fill those holes with better ideas -- or even propose totally different hypotheses.

That's the job science is supposed to do, and I think (for the most part) it is the job that science today actually does do.

The bottom line is that I think the scientific method -- as it is being applied today by science -- is (generally) working.

Perhaps a basic understanding of what science is, and is not, will help...
What Science Is...
What Science Is Not...

As to your thread title. "Prove It!"

4. It's not a process that attempts to prove things.
The process of science, when properly applied, actually attempts to disprove ideas (tentative explanations)... a process called "testing", or "challenging". If the idea survives testing, then it is stronger, and more likely an accurate explanation.

As any Taoist knows, "You cannot set foot in the same river twice."
Everything would be the same in a different kind of way.

Aren't you a peer? I saw it written plainly.

As I consider myself a peer with others on ATS, it satisfies all your criteria.

I though the tape trick had something to do with transexuals?

He means using masking tape to get dirt off fabric, like a lint roller.
