- Sep 1, 2000From looking at the tangible evidence approach: If the ancients had
telescopes, the question is what else were they capable of. Galileo's
telescope is supposedly a main impetus for our scientific revolution.
If we just accept the story from them that 'Sirians came to Earth and told
them about Sirius B' then we merely have to realign conventional thought to
agree with them, mystery of alien visitation solved.
This is however diverting from the point I was trying to make that
scientists fit facts into their belief system, rather than allow facts tell
them what to believe. Which is a big discrepancy from the adverts of how
conventional science is supposed to proceed.
As to my disagreement with your earlier beliefs, one of the things you said
was that the alternative approach to science was theology. I disagree, the
alternative to orthodox science is another science. Theology is something
that gets tacked on afterwards. Unfortunately there are numerous adverts as
to why orthodox science is the genuine article, when actually we have been
sold a fake.
