I just don't understand how you can accept one as science and the other mindless nonsense because if I try to turn my religious side off and view it from an atheistic perspective both versions could be ripped directly from the pages of a comic book.

I mean you don't find the coincidence of Spiderman - Far from Home proposing a Multiverse (in the MCU) and this book being published a short bit after the least bit suspicious?

Also did you check the amazon reviews?

To me this all just seems like cashing in on a fantastical idea that is in vogue at the moment and can't yet be disproved.

Why is it that to you a religious person who disagrees with Darwin is automatically considered to be wrong on all further scientific views they may have? As I said scientists themselves still have differing theoretical beliefs.

K it's been a long long long time since I've seen any of that show so I dunno whether something else happens there but I don't see how the statement and image are connected. What does lifting barbells with ease have to do with mockery?


And no. I do get how we can be mocked. What I don't get is how proposing something supernatural and something extra-dimensional are any different? (Until said extra dimensional thing has been conclusively proven of course). Just seems like one hell of a double-standard to me.

If we were to destroy all the science books and eliminate everyone with any scientific knowledge; in a few 100 years the re-discovered science would be exactly the same = science.

How many religions are there and how many can agree on the same things? ;-)
(nb. According to some estimates, there are roughly 4,200 religions in the world: List of religions and spiritual traditions - Wikipedia)
No true

There are parts of "science" that are so entangled in certain subjects that have been proven wrong that are still in science books today

For Example: Haeckel’s embryos: the images that would not go away

He intentionally made fake drawings and it was widely accepted but when he was accused of being a fraud it was too late. 130 years later it still in biology books

If you dig around enough there will be countless incidents of scientists copying/plagiarizing/faking/etc all in the name of fame and fortune.

Scientific discoveries confirmed by in depended peers is irrefutable and would still be the same if discovered 100 years from now, like Physical Constants:
