What do you mean what do I object to about science? Do you mean what tenets specifically?

I object to the fact that there's been no scientific study of parody threads. :sneaky:

Pretty much the only things I object to are the subjects most scientists would consider inhumane. Human cloning, human testing, etc...

The only part I don't like about science are the ridiculously high costs. Our lab spends an absurd amount of money on disposable plastic goods, and I can't really understand why they're so expensive in the first place. Oh well.

edit: If I typed all that for a parody thread, then I'm pissed.

Mainly that it's hard. Why cant it be easy as pie...or at least as tasty. Pie>π.

And of course, to make a pie from scratch, first you need to create the Universe.

That's why I hate cooking.

i hate how scientists think just because they can predict some things with reasonable accuracy and have "proof" of other things that it makes them more right than a book thats ridiculously old.

the nerve.

I don't have an objection to science, I have an objection to the way people have such a hard and fast belief in our current scientific principles.

Science, real science, is very flexible. Any principle has the ability to be tweaked or completely discarded, so long as enough proof if its fallaciousness is given.

Many a principle now that we swear by had to go through some pretty intense vetting. A lot of the people that proposed some of the cooler things of science were initially thought to be mad, or idiots.

this.

i also have an objection to those who believe you can't have faith and science. the two aren't mutually exclusive.

The"hard and fast" acceptance(not belief) is what makes rejecting what eventually is proven Wrong possible. You go with what you Know as you Understand it until you Know differently. Otherwise you'll never go anywhere.

I am mad at science because there are no damn flying cars yet that we were promised.
