I say theories can become obsolete
You act like I'm an idiot for that
I show you that you are wrong
You say I back tracked...
Oh, its all clear to me now...
Once a theory is disproven or superseded it becomes obsolete.

A theory that is widely accepted as fact can become superseded or obsolete. They can and have been outrightly discarded. There are many examples of this which can be found readily with Google.
There are a vocal minority on both sides who the media prop up as the only two sides in order to perpetuate a nietzsche-like point of view that science is the only answer and that if you believe in god you are ignorant and dumb.
"Once a theory is disproved or superseded it becomes obsolete."
So is that not a correct statement?
There are a vocal minority on both sides who the media prop up as the only two sides in order to perpetuate a nietzsche-like point of view that science is the only answer and that if you believe in god you are ignorant and dumb. Once you accept that god is a fairy tale you have elevated yourself to a new level of consciousnesses...
I also have not appealed to a higher authority
Description of Appeal to Authority
An Appeal to Authority is a fallacy with the following form:
1.Person A is (claimed to be) an authority on subject S.
2.Person A makes claim C about subject S.
3.Therefore, C is true.
I have only brought it up because that is the actual point of the thread. That more scientists believe in God than the Media portrays. The link in the OP has nothing to do with my beliefs, but was a widely publicized event to perpetuate the stereotype further.
I believe science and religion are reconcilable.
I actually agree with that statement. I also find dogmatic beliefs to be ignorant in nature.
I think one can be Religious or Spiritual without being dogmatic.
Yes I agree. I can understand a high school dropout or even someone that was homeschooled not knowing the difference between scientific theory and the laymans definition of theory
