9. Intelligent Design is a scientific theory, hypothesis or conjecture (if true, pick one)

No, as all of those, even conjectures, arise from an observation. Intelligent design is made out of the Bible, not an observation.

10. There is presently a scientific controversy over Intelligent Design

No, although there's presently a controversy over Intelligent Design at debate.org!

This being the first true/false test to which all of my answers were "false," it makes me a little uncomfortable and confused. Seeing that Otokage did the same is a relief, though...

False
I would like to think that there is some truth in the science that we know, but being pragmatic we have to accept that the best we will get is a working model that produces useful technology.

2. Scientists believe nothing exists except natural observation
False
Science infers and extrapolates from natural observation so talks about things which cannot be directly observed eg the Higgs boson decays too fast to leave a direct trail. But surely the foundation of all science is natural observation as opposed to 'unnatural observation'?

3. Scientists believe everything has a natural explanation
False
Science only deals in natural explanation but cannot explain everything.

4. Charles Darwin is the chief scientific authority on evolution
False
Scientific ideas are always being revisited and improved so Darwin's ideas are no longer the best and final version.

5. Scientific theories are proved by experiment
False
Elements of a theory can be tested by experiment but I would say you cannot prove a theory, not 100%: Firstly because of experimental uncertainty casts doubt on all results and secondly because it is impossible to perform every possible test so we rely on inductive reasoning.

6. Scientific laws are absolute

False
New evidence can arise at any time that forces a rethink.

7. Over all, scientists believe they are never wrong

False
With some individual exceptions the community as a whole is constantly revisiting ideas and finding problems in theories so accepts that we cannot be sure we are right.

8. The practice of science is free from moral or ethical values

False

9. Intelligent Design is a scientific theory, hypothesis or conjecture (if true, pick one)

False
ID has many different variations, lacks detail such how and when, is based on limited cherry picked evidence and was proposed not because new evidence cast doubt on evolution and abiogenesis but for religious and political reasons.

10. There is presently a scientific controversy over Intelligent Design

False
The controversy is outside of the science domain.

Thank you for your answers, Chi -- and for the explanations!

I am sorry to see that so far, the ID proponents frequenting Science haven't answered these questions yet. But I shall offer my answers soon regardless, with explanations too.

I am not too sure I would characterize the purpose of science like that.


2. Scientists believe nothing exists except natural observation

False.


3. Scientists believe everything has a natural explanation

False.


4. Charles Darwin is the chief scientific authority on evolution

False, he is dead.


5. Scientific theories are proved by experiment

False, never proven. Theories have to remain open to the possibility of being wrong.

6. Scientific laws are absolute


7. Over all, scientists believe they are never wrong

False.


8. The practice of science is free from moral or ethical values

False. Science needs honesty (honest representation of the evidence), logical consistency to work.


9. Intelligent Design is a scientific theory, hypothesis or conjecture (if true, pick one)

False, no model has being presented that makes it vulnerable to disproof.

10. There is presently a scientific controversy over Intelligent Design

False, social controversy spear headed by various groups with various agenda but not an actual scientific controversy.

Yes. Thanks, Culo, GDBH and IllegalCombatant for responses. There's quite a bit of consistency so far, and I wonder if members most confident in their scientific educations have answered first.

I'd love to see answers from some ID proponents though, or from members who think that the job of science is to promote atheism.

No. Science can't discover everything about the universe. Science can only deal with what is falsifiable and confirmable.
2. Scientists believe nothing exists except natural observation


No. We can't observe consciousness, but unless you want to be an eliminativist, consciousness still exists.
3. Scientists believe everything has a natural explanation


No. There are things that are not able to be explained with science.
4. Charles Darwin is the chief scientific authority on evolution


No, obviously not. More recent evolutionary theories have more authority.
5. Scientific theories are proved by experiment


No theory is ever "proven". Experiment can verify certain parts of a theory, but it could be that those parts are part of some other, unknown theory.
6. Scientific laws are absolute


No. There is a point where all laws break down.
7. Over all, scientists believe they are never wrong


I can't say for certain whether or not they think that, but they obviously aren't.
8. The practice of science is free from moral or ethical values


This is blatantly false. When science is deprived of morals, we end up with things like nuclear weapons and commercially funded research.
9. Intelligent Design is a scientific theory, hypothesis or conjecture (if true, pick one)


No. Intelligent Design is not falsifiable, so it can't be scientific.
10. There is presently a scientific controversy over Intelligent Design

There is a controversy, but it isn't scientific.

[quote]The purpose of science is to discover the absolute truth of the universe[/quote]

True, though that seems a bit overbroad and presumptuous.

[quote]Scientists believe nothing exists except natural observation[/quote]
True. What other types of observations are there?

[quote]Scientists believe everything has a natural explanation[/quote]

True. Anything we can observe is natural by definition.

[quote]Charles Darwin is the chief scientific authority on evolution[/quote]

False. Originator? YES. Current authority, doubtful.

[quote]Scientific theories are proved by experiment[/quote]
True. How else do you suppose they are, or could be, proven?

[quote]Scientific laws are absolute[/quote]
False. They are subject to change just as theories are.

[quote]Over all, scientists believe they are never wrong[/quote]

False. ... overall.

[quote]The practice of science is free from moral or ethical values[/quote]

True. In it's pure form and free from being tarnished from personal beliefs of individual scientists. Science speaks nothing of ethics or morals, just "what is".

[quote]Intelligent Design is a scientific theory, hypothesis or conjecture (if true, pick one) [/quote]
False. It's a lame attempt to pass off religion as science to gain credibility.

[quote]There is presently a scientific controversy over Intelligent Design[/quote]

True, but only amongst religious scientists who confuse their emotional beliefs with the discipline that is scientific method.

False, Which is why such things as empiricism and this cult mindset that science is the new great church of this age are all bad philosophies.


2. Scientists believe nothing exists except natural observation


False, Science does not discount the transcendental, Scientist just do not use it to explain things.

3. Scientists believe everything has a natural explanation


I think this one is true. It comes from materialism being indoctrinated in scientist.

4. Charles Darwin is the chief scientific authority on evolution

Evolution in the form we have it today was not made by Darwin. Darwin described adaptation by natural selection of breeding partners from the fittest to survive as the mechanism for change.


5. Scientific theories are proved by experiment


Nothing is proved in science it is all tentative. What science is really saying is this explanation so far has not been shown false. Experiments are the singular stripped down observation that the extrapolation is made from. hence science being an inductive method.

6. Scientific laws are absolute

They are usually written so that their conditions are clearly stated. Many forget about the conditions. For instance when quoting the laws of thermodynamics they forget it is for closed systems. And so when anyone uses that as an explanation you know they are assuming a closed system. Which may or may not be the actual case.

7. Over all, scientists believe they are never wrong

I think if you read the majority of conclusions in papers especially in papers regarding areas like evolution, abiogenesis and such the language is "may", "might" "could" "possibly" ect..

I think they think they can be wrong but they think they are smarter than laypeople.


8. The practice of science is free from moral or ethical values


Ooo tough one. Interesting one. False, because there are ethic boards. So obviously there is some community oversight in what is and is not proper behavior.

9. Intelligent Design is a scientific theory, hypothesis or conjecture (if true, pick one)


I think it a scientific conjecture and hypothesis.

10. There is presently a scientific controversy over Intelligent Design

False. There is no controversy because there is no debate. Now the fact there is no debate does not mean because the most likely solution has been found and ID is not it. Not the discussion is stalled due to political, prejudice, and other factors effecting a truly scientific inquiry.

If you're generally referring to the scientific community, then all answers are false. However, if you pick and choose certain credible scientists, the answers will vary.

Also:

Would the answer be different for #1 if it was changed to read, "The goal of science..."

Science knows nothing and as it all wrong.

The truth about time.

Science says before the big bang there was no time and time begun from the very first moment of the big bang. Science also say that time and space are interwoven , a space-time and space-time is independent of an observer.

Time is recorded by the means of any constant rate, such has a Pendulum on a clock or the ticking of a finger on a clock.

Presently time is recorded using an atomic clock, the Caesium atom 'beats' so many times equal to 1 second.

'Has a frequency of exactly 9,192,631,770 Hz. That value was chosen so that the caesium second equalled, to the limit of human measuring ability in 1960 when it was adopted'.

Caesium standard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Basically the second on the new clock was equal to the second on the old clock, 24 hrs was still 86400 seconds the same has 24 hrs using the old clock.

I asked science the origin of time? science replied in short by sunrise and sunset basically saying by the rotation of the Earth relative to the Suns motion, a common answer most people know.

Motion was a word I did not really want to hear because this conferred my fears about a terrible mistake about time and just about most of what science thinks.

The origin of time , 24 hrs is based on rotation of the Earth, so for every hour of rotation, it would equal a distance travelled of a singular point on Earth.

24 hrs being equal to one rotation the circumference of the earth from where 'time' was being recorded.

If you understand this so far and have put the parts together, we can clearly see that science have time that is based on a distance,

The maths simply shows it

Earth's orbital rotation - 1035 mph

24 hrs * 1035 mph = circumference 24840 miles

24840 miles / 86400 seconds = 0.2875 miles per second

Science says this is not true, I asked them how can it not be true? when 24 hrs originated from rotation of the earth and sun dials etc

0.2875 miles per second converted to meters is 462.69 m per second, I asked science how can the speed of light be faster than time 299792458 meters a second,
647933.731008 times faster than time,

They told me I was disillusioned and that I spoke gibberish word salad.

When science changed the clock to the Caesium clock they never changed the second, so that meant the new second is still the same as the old second that is based on distance travelled in rotation relative to the sun.

Science have 1 second is 462.69 meters, to confirm this you simply look at the invariants , an object travelling at 1035 mph will travel exactly 24840 miles in 24 hrs or 86400 seconds.

1. The purpose of science is to discover the absolute truth of the universe

False

2. Scientists believe nothing exists except natural observation

3. Scientists believe everything has a natural explanation

False; they would need evidence to support such a claim

4. Charles Darwin is the chief scientific authority on evolution

False

5. Scientific theories are proved by experiment

False; hypotheses are, and it's "proven", not "proved"

6. Scientific laws are absolute

False... they have merely been shown the predict outcomes in the past

7. Over all, scientists believe they are never wrong

Most definitely false

8. The practice of science is free from moral or ethical values

False; research on embryonic stem cells is not.

9. Intelligent Design is a scientific theory, hypothesis or conjecture (if true, pick one)
