Next Generation Science Standards In Kentucky Draw Hostility From Religious Groups

Next Generation Science Standards In Kentucky Draw Hostility From Religious Groups

Commented Jul 29, 2013 at 19:22:39 in Politics

“Did you notice that even in the first definition the word fact does not appear? Commonly regarded as correct is not the same.”

Fran Jaime on Jul 29, 2013 at 19:34:01

“Ok. Read  this then. http://www.nas.edu/evolution/TheoryOrFact.html
That should clarify it.”

“Does it mean irrefutable fact? ”

RagdeSitum on Jul 29, 2013 at 21:05:35

“No. A theory is an explanation that is based on facts. For example, the Newtonian theories on planetary motion were based on mathematical calculations that accurately described and predicted the orbits. That theory was based on treating gravity as a force. It worked for a couple of hundred years until Einstein's theories of relativity and the nature of space-time. That means that a scientific theory is the best explanation based on available evidence and if new evidence is found to change or provide a different explanation, then a new theory is developed. That is totally different than a religious explanation, which is not based on any evidence whatsoever and will not change even when evidence to the contrary exists.”

“You missed a couple definitions.

1.
a coherent group of tested general propositions, commonly regarded as correct, that can be used as principles of explanation and prediction for a class of phenomena: Einstein's theory of relativity. Synonyms: principle, law, doctrine.
2.
a proposed explanation whose status is still conjectural and subject to experimentation, in contrast to well-established propositions that are regarded as reporting matters of actual fact. Synonyms: idea, notion hypothesis, postulate. Antonyms: practice, verification, corroboration, substantiation.
3.
Mathematics . a body of principles, theorems, or the like, belonging to one subject: number theory.
4.
the branch of a science or art that deals with its principles or methods, as distinguished from its practice: music theory.
5.
a particular conception or view of something to be done or of the method of doing it; a system of rules or principles: conflicting theories of how children best learn to read.”

“Did you notice the other definitions don't pertain to SCIENCE?”

RagdeSitum on Jul 29, 2013 at 19:14:29

“Yes, words can have multiple meanings.  In science, however, the word "theory" has a very specific meaning.”

“Has evolution been proven? The last I heard, it was still the THEORY of evolution. Perhaps keep that and religion out of schools.”

Fran Jaime on Jul 29, 2013 at 19:16:43

“Yes,it has been extensively proven. It's a THEORY in the SCIENTIFIC sense, not the vernacular. In other words: A set of statements or principles devised to explain a group of facts or phenomena, especially one that has been repeatedly tested or is widely accepted and can be used to make predictions about natural phenomena.
Note the "REPEATEDLY TESTED" part.”

RagdeSitum on Jul 29, 2013 at 19:06:47

“theory (noun)

a coherent group of tested general propositions, commonly regarded as correct, that can be used as principles of explanation and prediction for a class of phenomena: ie., Einstein's theory of relativity.

In science, the word "theory" does not mean the same as "hypothesis." For an explanation to be elevated to the scientific status of "theory" it must be supported by mountains of evidence and nothing has been found to discredit it.”

Allan H Clark on Jul 29, 2013 at 19:04:42

“And it's still the theory of gravitation and the theory of electromagnetism and the theory of relativity. Look up the word 'theory' if you have a dictionary and learn what it means in science.”

“It's nothing new. The Quarles case decided as much. If the officer perceives a reasonable risk of harm, then the officer needn't read the suspect his rights immediately. You shouldn't worry too much about the Constitutional rights of this suspect being infringed. My understanding is that he is in serious condition, which is no condition to answer police questioning.

As such, his Miranda rights will not be infringed. Once he is awakened, or fit to answer questioning, he will be undoubtedly be read his Miranda rights again, and will have the opportunity to invoke or waive those rights.”

“He does have the rights, but given the possibility of other explosive devices, combined with the shoot out, the public need to question him outweighs his right to have those rights read to him immediately. After they have confirmed that there is no threat to the public, immediate or otherwise, he should be mirandised, if I understand this correctly.”

“Your not thinking clearly. A baby outside of the womb can be cared for by someone, be it parents or adopted parents or a state/federal agency. In womb there is no alternative to give that baby care. Either the mother provides the care or no one does. And if the mother does not wish to give that care she is not obligated to do so.”
