    Let's see if this can be the adult table for adult discussion and the children stay at the kiddie table. :rolleyes:

    I'm re-posting E7's video of Jon Stewart, too. Thank you JS for saying what all rational persons say.

    Jon Stewart is teh awesome.

    I love how everyone overlooks his laughing at the rightwing loons at the end of the clip.

    I guess private schools don't teach critical thinking anymore. :lol:

    Who is overlooking anything, ravi? I posted some content and said that he said what all rational persons would like to say. If you have a comment to make on that content, go for it. A critical thinker would address all the content, as I did. Can you?

    Yes, it did. Is that the kiddies' goal here as well?

    Do you have a comment on the entire content, or would you like to have a meltdown like other children?

    You give us a rough row to hoe at the "adult table" if you start with a Jon Stewart clip, but here goes.

    Folks are quick to throw up their arms and say leave science to scientists. As if they conducted such difficult and unfathomable mysteries that no one could possibly hope to understand. You should simply take their findings as truth and move on. In fact, the process is understandable even if the subject, measuring equipment and findings are complicated.

    You start with a hypothesis then develop a methodology to test your idea. You try to anticipate things that would cause your results to vary and refine your methods to reduce the effects. Then and only then do you move forward with the testing and data gathering. Then you report your findings and draw conclusions.

    Things you don't do are:

    1. Throw away raw data.
    2. Manipulate some data with one method while treating similiar data with another method.
    3. Dropout same data without stating you have done so and explaining why it is acceptable.
    4. Over state the effects of your causes, while understating other causes.
    5. Disallow others from trying to reproduce your results with the raw data and your methodology.
    6. If others try and come to a diferent conclusion, you do not try to prevent their research from being
    known. You attempt to show errors in their research or admit same in yours.

    Since the kiddie started the thread, probably.

    You are free to read my comments on the other thread.
