Return Of The Master/Jack..
- Dave.O and Randy.C, are evidence that the bible is the word of God!
Just as there is night and day, sun and moon, good and bad. Etc..,
there are these two guys who are able to agree, yet, one proclaims God, the other denounces him. Strange, but interesting.
- The calculations below only show the use of LOGICAL DEDUCTIVE REASONING...not "the use of science".
A child may decide, from past experience, that it's best NOT to lean too close to the edge of a box that he's sitting on or else he might fall off. He is not "doing science" but simply applying principles of deductive reasoning from past experience. (previously falling OFF the box) Now IF he decided to lean further and FALL, then you might argue that his falling INVOLVES some of the aspects of science...gravity etc but this small child is in NO way "doing science" whether he decides to lean...or not to lean. That's ridiculous. By *your reasoning...every single act of human (or animal or plant) nature could be considered "doing science". The rules and laws of "science" happen all around us on a constant basis...but that in no way means that we are actively participating in "the act of doing" science. Thats like saying we're participating in the wind blowing...just because the wind is blowing. I see no logic in that at all.
