Science and Religion Coexisting.

Science and Religion are to completely different things, religion shouldn't be "mixed up" with science. The Bible and this "God" is just a tall tale, science is based on facts and real evidence. There is no evidence to prove God & The Bible, if you believe in that, that's your right. But it defiantly shouldn't ever be included in science....

MBTI Is Pseudoscience

BradK
ForSerious

Astrology or horoscopes are pseudoscience because they don't provide valid explanations and are easily debunkable. My claim is that Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is better classified under pseudoscience as well, rather than actual science.---MBTI 101:There are 4 cognitive functions and 2 temperaments:COGNITIVE FUNCTIONS:- Thinking (T) (judging)- Feeling (F)(judging)- Sensing (S) (perceiving)- Intuition (N)(perceiving)

Terra-forming Venus vs Mars

This debate will focus around the potential to terra-form Venus (me) vs terra-forming Mars (Imabench). Measuring the winner will be based on two values that we will be pushing. 1) How close we can get our respective planet to Earth like conditions.

Obviously everything that is "scientifically possible" is fair game, but things that can be done with tech that we already have available should sco...

Evolution: Pick One

WriterDave
ScottyDouglas

The following are the key propositions from that post, which I have copied and pasted here (spelling errors and all):(1) A formerly wide spread of these (flood) myths can make one think that the actuality of the flood can be true. (2) The geological evidences from the Biblical Flood are in agreement with geological facts seen in the field.(3) The d...

Evolution

1) Birds disprove darwin\’s \"natural selection\". The idea of natural selection sounds great when considering deer. The deer that can sense danger the quickest and run the fastest are able to escape the predator on a more consistent basis. However, other examples on the evolutionary tree have many laughable flaws. One of the best is the thought that a bird began to evolve a wing. Why this would occur is not answered by evolutionists. The wing stub did not make the bird more ada...
