GOP Wants to Change the Definition of the Term Scientific Theory
In their never ending quest to drag America back to the 11th Century, the GOP now wants to change what the words "hypothesis" and "theory" mean.
[quote]HB 291, the "Missouri Standard Science Act," redefines a few things you thought you already knew about science. For example, a "hypothesis" is redefined as something that reflects a "minority of scientific opinion and is "philosophically unpopular." A scientific theory is "an inferred explanation...whose components are data, logic and faith-based philosophy." And "destiny" is not something that $5 fortune tellers believe in; Instead, it's "the events and processes that define the future of the universe, galaxies, stars, our solar system, earth, plant life, animal life, and the human race."
NIST invented a "new phenomenon of thermal expansion" to describe how all the vertical supports on WTC 7 could fail simultaneously without being made to do so with the use of explosives.
You will never see this "new phenomenon" replicated anywhere ever again because it is "government science" that "government scientists" pulled out of their collective asses.
Anyone who believes the official explanation for the events of 9/11 believes more in faith than in facts.
R10 Go start your own fucking thread.
R11 being a 9/11 Truth Denier is like being a Global Warming Denier. The facts are there for anyone with a working brain to see. All the propaganda in the world cannot undo the laws of physics.
They're trying to pull a Slick Willie, but lack the finesse to pull it off.
Why do Republicans go off on these idiotic tangents?
I want to change it too to scientific fact.
So in reading those three definitions, science is reduced to a mere 'unpopular opinion' where faith-based philosophy (which would not be based on facts, thus the faith part) is elevated above science. In fact, there is no definition there among the three that lends ANY weight to scientific explanations or theories. Science thus ceases to be science and seems to be redefined as some sort of fantasy, while faith based fantasy becomes a legitimate explanation with more weight than science.
He looks like a penis buff, too. If you google hum he was an ex-Marine so seems pretty likely!
