re: National Wealth vs Belief in Evolution - Taxing Authority
[quote]But for survey questions, a yes-no response option may be useful.[/quote]Aye. Difference context, but even so... it's widely used because it's easy to tally and requires no interpretation.

re: National Wealth vs Belief in Evolution - Taxing Authority
[quote]The answer to that question is "I have no idea."[/quote]Its the correct answer to a great number of scientific questions. Especially to the lay person. Want to make people think you're stupid? Tell a large group "I'm not sure about this evolution thing" and a sizable portion of them (that...

re: National Wealth vs Belief in Evolution - Taxing Authority
[quote]A person cannot "believe," or "not believe" in evolution. A person either understands evolution or they don't.[/quote]Any person can [i]believe[/i]. Because belief requires nothing more than faith. It's [u]not[/u] science. [u]Even if[/u] science agrees with your belief. [quote]And that si...

re: National Wealth vs Belief in Evolution - Taxing Authority
[quote]Evolution is real and yet, does not negate the existence of God. [/quote]Exactly. But that isn't really the point. The goal is to use a small segment of science to politically divide. [quote]Evolutionarily we are all "in between." We won't look like this in 50,000 years.[/quote]Hell, look...

re: National Wealth vs Belief in Evolution - Taxing Authority
[quote]I agree that most are generally ignorant of the details. That being said, global warming theory relies heavily if not exclusively on causation based an an N of 1. It's essentially a House of Cards in that regard. Evolution, as a theory, is not dependent on the specificity of imprecise causal ...

[quote]The only people who would claim a consensus are those with an agenda, period, end of story.[/quote]That's truth. I have a client we do some simple groundwater transport modeling for. VERY simple model. Lots of historic calibration data. And a 25 year history of matching observed data with...

[quote]So basically you're saying yes, that's what you think happened [/quote]Nope. You made up the fictional story. I have almost two decades of numerical modeling experience. If you think modelers don't build in bias with their prejudices... You are painfully ignorant. To think that a group ca...
