Reflections on Faith and Science

February 17, 2012 Leave a comment

Science will constantly apply an honest, demanding and critical eye toward the value of its assertions. For assertions to hold up in science they can not be backed up with weak denials but rather must be constantly backed up with real solid evidence. The scientific models must constantly prove to their valid detractors that they are the best model for reality.

Over and over again it has been shown that the only true model of the world that we live in comes though the discipline of science. Despite the constant invalid faith-based challenges that are launched against science those with open minds see that only through science are they able to get the answers they can rely on.

Though some may not say it openly, their actions indicate that they feel that science is incomparable with their own beliefs. Whether there truly is anĀ  incompatibility is irrelevant. The question that we should be asking instead is whether we are willing to hear and accepts the correct facts that are put before us. We should all be open-minded enough to ask ourselves whether we should put value any belief that would deny us the freedom to be critical enough to inquire as to what is the true nature of reality. It’s okay to have faith but it must also be okay to think.

Wisconsin’s Mutual Assured Destruction

October 21, 2011 Leave a comment

Starting Nov. 1, the citizens of Wisconsin will see each other in a profoundly different light. On that day the Wisconsin concealed carry law takes effect. Our state will now have one of the most liberal laws of its kind in the nation.

Our legislators and our governor have told us that this law will increase our security by allowing us to carry guns almost anywhere. After our applications have been cleared and we take our gun courses, we will be able to carry our weapons feeling secure in knowing that we can walk down the street and have at our fingertips the ability to kill whoever we want. So, apparently, a highly armed citizenry walking the streets means increased safety.

I’m sorry, but I just can’t feel I have increased security and have increased trust in my neighbors knowing that from now on any interaction with a fellow Wisconsinite has the increased potential of being my last.

In a speech Lincoln said of his adversary:

“He has dived down deeper into the sea of knowledge and come up drier than any other man I have have known”.

I have been fooling around with Word-Press for awhile too. This thing has three pages accessed by the tabs above. This is what I have so far. It’s just an outline of the finished product.
