The last time I did a scientific experiment was a long long time ago. It had something to do with a Bunsen burner heating up a chemical to create a smell similar to rotten eggs. I don't remember why the experiment was done or what I was supposed to have learned from it.
When I was doing my rotten eggs experiment, scientists were proving that smoking cured asthma, in faith I believed them and started smoking - I'm still hooked!
Clearly I don't know much about science, what I do know is based on faith rather than knowledge.
I would suspect that the vast majority of people are in exactly the same position as me, they believe what scientists say, they have faith in scientific proof but they have very little understanding of science.
But we have a problem, scientists have a tendency to prove what the money tells them to prove.
For a million dollars wind farms are good trump that with four million and we'll say that nuclear is better!
Scientists say that global warming is happening and we need to do everything that we can to stop it. Other scientists say bollocks, global warming is just a statist way of controlling people and that global warming is a myth!
It is faith that makes us choose sides on such issues rather than knowledge.
Creationism or Darwinism? Do you make your choice through personal scientific experimental proof, or is your view based on what you believe to be true? I suspect that 99% of people believe what they believe and don't give the subject a second thought - irrational blind faith from both sides of the argument!
I know that my redeemer liveth! As a matter of fact and experience I know that the Lord Jesus Christ is my saviour.
But apparently I'm a nutter for knowing something through my experience of faith in religion rather than being confused by a mixed up faith in science!
Confusin' i'n it?
