Unlike religious texts, science is forever able to change

Hey, Hey, Hey! Cut it out!

You can't be using words like science, evidence, evolve, and change. Those are all against the wingnut TOS.

You're walking a very fine line, young man!

^This. Ideally, science by definition does not have an agenda, but rather it seeks the truth as we can best put it together given the information we have. Individual scientists, of course, may have agendas, but the scientific method which includes the idea of falsifiability is meant to mitigate such agendas. So are such things as controlling for variables in experiments and the process of peer review in scientific publication. These, among other things, propel the engine of scientific knowledge.

It would be a pretty empty ark as soon as T Rex got hungry. Add a few velocraptors and they could finish up the crumbs.

There is a pbs documentary which is fascinating. Its called What Darwin never Knew. Its about his life and discoveries and involves some of his writings he could not publish without being condemned by christians of his time.

He debated how things change, but without the technology we have today was unable to look at the incredable world of genetics. But he *speculated* that it was some function within the structure of living things itself. If it had been possible for him to study the way science can today, he could have made amazing discoveries, but sadly *religion* stilted the public scope of one of the visionaries of his time.

What's so sad about this crap is its of the same mindset of Darwin's time and appeals to the same closed minds.

Religion is absolutely static. You live by the law and you're saved. You don't, you're screwed. STATIC.

And Science is "convenient" when you can get a bunch of peers (mob) who speak the language of science (sophistry) to rule something valid. Global warmings a great example. Put enough money behind it and scientists can make anything true. Convenience!
