Personally I kinda like science.
Not sure what you have against science OP since without it you probably would of died a long time ago, eaten by a Lion or succumb to an infected tooth.
Because finding far away planets totally saved me from a man-eating lion. Sending rockets to the moon sure fixed my infected tooth!

I think a lot of scientists are payed by the government to keep regular people in the dark. They are not going to tell the real truth and they misinform people on a lot of things and people believe them.
the very idea of the most advanced minds on our planet, not having figured a better way to look across the distances and see what is to be seen, is a bit staggering . The entire problem is that they are looking for what they will recognise . They shouldnt be.

Hmm perhaps because it was other scientists who challenged the "assumptions" you are making such a big deal about?
Or do you think this planet was discovered by butchers, bakers and candlestick makers?
What you mean the scientist who did the equivalent of tripping over the planet in front of him.... all of a sudden proves that science is doing it's job?
The fact is they had a theory... yet another flawed theory.... and as a result did not actively look for planets which were literally under their nose. That is Science for you right there. Because 1 scientist lucked out one day when looking through his son's $500 telescope while showing him the moon doesn't mean the science community is right all along.
So again tell me why Science should be used as any sort of measurement for anything.... given how continually wrong they are?

Arrogance? I don't see that. Can you explain how it's arrogant to focus efforts on what is thought to be the best strategy?

for provoking my mind this morning!
I really have no idea what point you are trying to make but I also have little confidence in your information. Math is the concept of numbers. This existed long before language. Before the words "two" and "opal" were ever thought up, people already understood the concept of two being twice as many as one. I am not sure what you are on about or how it even applies to the little joke I tried to make but math came first. You are just talking about the development of language and how different ones decided to apply those language to the already well understood concept of math.

The only people I've ever heard say what you just did . . . are fundi-christians and those who lack any understanding on the scientific method (or the work that goes into testing and how accurate theorhetical models actually are).
As you were asked before . . . can you show an actual example of this happening in the scientific community that doesn't come from an evangelical op-ed?

but uh....2 + 2 still equals 4 right?
I mean, I am just saying. You are not looking to disprove MATH are you or just certain advanced mathematical theorems? Now I am curious.
