Does having questions about a certain aspect of science preclude you from any and all scientific advances? Or is questioning actually the basis of science.
I hate the term pseudoscience. All science is pseudoscience until it's been proven.
The demarcation problem between science and pseudoscience has ethical political implications, as well as philosophical and scientific issues. Differentiating science from pseudoscience has practical implications in the case of health care, expert testimony, environmental policies, and science education. Distinguishing scientific facts and theories from pseudoscientific beliefs such as those found in astrology, alchemy, medical quackery, and occult beliefs combined with scientific concepts, is part of science education and scientific literacy.
What has happened in the scientific world, where you're ridiculed for questioning the status quo?

Just a quick question for you tech unique. It may seem off topic but your reply will tell you a lot about how you really feel about religion vs Scientific approach.
If one of your children was having a seizure, would you rush them to the hospital or to the church. Explain your choice of answer
so obviously I would take her to the hospital and pray to God she doesn't have brain damage.
What do you guys think about this? More specifically, why do you think leading Atheists are so hateful towards something they think doesn't even exist? They are explicitly referring to God and Jesus Christ. Not to the religion of Christianity.
Plus you're still using more stupid YouTube videos as if YouTube videos are the apex of Human Knowledge and Truth. There is just no possible way to get through to you is there. You are truly the definition of a Zealot, you know that??

Now, Now. Anger is not going to prove your point. Your opinion is just as valid as TechUnique's point of view and his point of view is just as valid as yours.
I also do believe that evolution as taught in academia is not true. I do believe that change does occur in creation but that change that you believe to be evolution is actually creation of the Creator.
Why prey tell are creationists allowed to act in the manner you have described above, and it is perfectly fine because "it is their faith", but anyone else, who does it is in the wrong? Surely that would be the height of hypocrisy?
Honest discussions - even and perhaps especially on topics about which we disagree - can help us resist hypocrisy and arrogance. They can also help us live up to the basic ideals, such as liberty and justice for all, on which our country was founded. ~ David Price.
