    I'd like a Nickel for every Religionist who says 'Evolution is only a theory'. Not knowing Science does Not use 'Theory' for mere Conjecture but for a well documented set of facts.
    The board is polluted with alot of these Literalists and 7-Eleven Adventists who know Zero about science.

    Warning: Gravity is "Only a Theory"

    by Ellery Schempp
    Gravity: It's Only a Theory | NCSE

    All physics textbooks should include this warning label:

    “This textbook contains material on Gravity. Universal Gravity is a theory, Not a fact, regarding the natural law of attraction. This material should be approached with an open mind, studied carefully, and critically considered.”​

    The Universal Theory of Gravity is often taught in schools as a “fact,” when in fact it is not even a good theory.

    First of all, no one has measured gravity for every atom and every star. It is simply a religious belief that it is “universal.” Secondly, school textbooks routinely make false statements. For example, “the moon goes around the earth.” If the theory of gravity were true, it would show that the sun's gravitational force on the moon is much stronger than the earth's gravitational force on the moon, so the moon would go around the sun. Anybody can look up at night and see the obvious gaps in gravity theory.

    The existence of tides is often taken as a proof of gravity, but this is logically flawed. Because if the moon's “gravity” were responsible for a bulge underneath it, then how can anyone explain a high tide on the opposite side of the earth at the same time? Anyone can observe that there are 2 -- not 1 -- high tides every day. It is far more likely that tides were given us by an Intelligent Creator long ago and they have been with us ever since. In any case, two high tides falsifies gravity.
    [...... Big snip........]
    It is not even clear why we need a theory of gravity -- there is not a single mention in the Bible, and the patriotic founding fathers never referred to it.

    Finally, the mere name “Universal Theory of Gravity” or “Theory of Universal Gravity” (the secularists like to use confusing language) has a distinctly Socialist ring to it. The core idea of “to each according to his weight, from each according to his mass” is Communist. There is no reason that gravity should apply to the just and the unjust equally, and the saved should have relief from such “universalism.” If we have Universal Gravity now, then Universal health care will be sure to follow. It is this kind of Universalism that saps a nation's moral fiber.

    Overall, the Theory of Universal Gravity is just not an attractive theory. It is based on borderline evidence, has many serious gaps in what it claims to explain, is clearly wrong in important respects, and has social and moral deficiencies. If taught in the public schools, by mis-directed “educators,” it has to be balanced with alternative, more attractive theories with genuine gravamen and spiritual gravitas.​

    I've decided to repeal the law of gravity. Here goes. I feel myself getting lighter. Now it takes both hands to hold onto the keyboard. I had better turn on the voice typing feature........there, that's done. Now I can conti.......I am losing my grip..........HELP ME!!!!! I AM RISING UP FASTER........ hisssing sound.

    That's another stupid person that ignored science. Darwin takes care of them sooner or later.

    All you have to do is prove it and you will win a Nobel prize.

    Every time a person proves it by jumping up and not coming down, they float off into space, get sucked into the sun and burn up. They never get the chance to file the paperwork.

    Another Dolt.
    Scientific theories, tho FACTS like Gravity, do not get "Proved."
    Only Math deals in "Proofs".
    Theories get affirmed over time and become Facts as well.
    Facts do not necessarily need "proof" just repeated true observation and predictability.

    In fact, Most Murder convictions don't really have absolute "Proof," but lots of Circumstantial EVIDENCE that leads to Conclusions (not really "proof") beyond a reasonable doubt.
    Evolution has a better evidentiary case than most of those convictions.

    Gravity sucks! Actually gravity is another name for molecular attraction.

    "Prove" this is a message board you 12 IQ Asshole.
    Facts do not need "proof", and the vast majority don't have them.


    And of course, if Evo isn't true, then Kweationism is.
    Yet, unlike Evo, There isn' even ANY evidence for God/Dog, much less proof.

    Now back to Infowars you Proof Poof.

    WRONG Entry you MORON.
    Precisely the target of this thread. Just PERFECT you 12 IQ Clown!


    1. Wiki: 'Scientific Theory'

    ....The definition of a Scientific Theory
    (often contracted to "theory" for the sake of brevity) as used in the disciplines of science is significantly Different from the common vernacular usage of the word "theory".
    In everyday speech, "theory" can imply that something is an unsubstantiated and speculative guess, the Opposite of its meaning in science.
    These different usages are comparable to the opposing usages of "prediction" in science versus everyday speech, where it denotes a mere hope..."​

    1. Evolution is only a theory. It is not a fact or a scientific law.

    Many people learned in Elementary School that a theory falls in the middle of a hierarchy of certainty—above a mere hypothesis but below a law.
    Scientists do NOT use the terms that way, however.
    According to the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), a scientific theory is “a Well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that can incorporate facts, laws, inferences, and tested hypotheses.”
    No amount of validation changes a theory into a law, which is a descriptive generalization about nature. So when scientists talk about the theory of evolution—or the atomic theory or the theory of relativity, for that matter—they are Not expressing reservations about its truth.

    In addition to the theory of evolution, meaning the idea of descent with modification, one may also speak of the FACT of evolution.....
