huckster:

 


There is a biologist / scientist Brian Cox coming to talk in chch in June


I think he would hate to be called a biologist. Biology is far to messy for physicists.

 

 

...and saying he's "a" scientist is a bit like saying Mick Jagger/Freddie Mercury/Robert Plant/Bono/Annie Lennox/Chris Martin etc. is/was "a" singer in "a" band.

kingdragonfly: Good find... However you've fallen for the "theory of evolution" argument. There's also the "theory of gravity"

<... A hypothesis is an educated guess or prediction about the relationship between two variables.

A theory is a well-established, tested explanation that provides a unified description of some aspect of the natural world. A theory is based on substantiated data, repeated testing, and the consensus of a wide group of scientists/researchers






And there you have the problem.
It's not tested
It's not substantial data
And it doesn't hold up under new information

I think itwas hawkung who calculated three odds of evolution at some thing like 10exp43000 or there abouts

Modern genetics show humans are closer to kangaroos than monkeys yet the same blocks keeps getting wheeled out as an absolute truth

Singer uses "Google Translate" on lyrics from various ABBA songs, from example from ENglish to Swedish to English.

Then sings the results.

From the same channel.

One actress does Rapunzel, without translation.

The other sings the mother's replies, after translated back and forth to English.

I have changed. The rain did not. Come on, I need it. Stand still. Shut up strangers!

This is too valuable to be buried here. Can you find an appropriate place for it in the Politics thread?
