“Jeez, if I'd been performing an act and my mic didn't allow me to do the show I would have said exactly the same thing. It's not like she cursed AT anybody. Give her a break, people, her mic was off and she didn't even think anyone could hear her.”

“First off, she doesn't screech, she's actually an amazing singer (this coming from a guy who doesn't like country music). Second, it wasn't her fault they cast her, she took the opportunity and went with it just like anybody would, and did the best she could. Third, just because other people have had it worse, that doesn't mean it doesn't suck to get pounded on. Get a little perspective.”

“First, as to her singing ability and style, we can disagree.Second, they didn't just cast her.  I am sure she was approached and it was discussed.  I disagree with you in that many similarly situated artists would not have taken the part, if they did not feel they were ready for it.  The fact she "did the best she could" and it was so inept is pretty much the point.  Third, I am sure it "sucks to get pounded on."  But her response was that the people who were "mean" to her "need Jesus."  This is quite the immature response, and just shows she is way out of her depth.  ”

“This test could have contained the religious element without being so insultingly unintelligent. It's like they want to keep their children ignorant. For instance, without gravity we would NOT be pulled into outer space ), we would in fact be vaporized by the atmosphere before going into space (along with not being here to begin with). Number 4 bothered me the most. "People who do not believe in God cannot explain this powerful force"? That's like saying that believing in God actually ALLOWS you to explain this powerful force. Knowing God made it doesn't mean you actually know HOW it works! Theoretically, most, if not all, of his creations are unfathomable. Even to the intelligent religious zealot, this test is a piece of crap.”

“We will know, in time, whether or not evolution is real because we will witness it, at least in ourselves and hopefully in the wildlife that could still exist. Science hasn't been around long enough to know whether we are right. As for gravity, it is indeed called a law (sciency word for fact) that it exists, but why it exists is still a theory. Laws ARE the strongest word in science. Many theories that seemed like the only possible reason for something have been disproven in the past. Laws are more important than theories, and indeed far stronger, because they are the basis of theories and will never be disproven. Otherwise, I'm not sure why you're explaining any of this to me as we agree completely.”

“Math is evidence. What you're talking about is proof. There is a difference between a theory and a fact, but myth and fact are much farther apart, and that's what the Bible is with no actual evidence to back it up. Belief in something is fine, but if actual evidence contradicts a belief, that belief should be subject to change.”

“And the smartest scientific minds are still smart enough NOT to call it the big bang fact.”

AntiSocialSailor on Nov 25, 2013 at 17:07:20

“There is no "proof" of almost all major scientific theories. Scientists don't bandy the word "proof" around lightly. There is no proof for nu.clear theory. There's no "proof" for gravity. "Proof" is a term best reserved for mathematics.

When a theory, such as evolution, has withstood all scientific challenges for a sufficient time, when it's been successfully used to make predictions and can be successfully used to guide other scientific fields, it's as close to being proven as you can get.

Evolution will likely never achieve a higher status than "theory". It doesn't need to. A theory is just about the highest status in the world of science. Theories are useful. They explain observable facts. They form the basis for predictions.

Facts, on the other hand, are just bits of data. They don't explain anything. They can't be used to make predictions, even if they are "proven" facts. Without a unifying theory, fact are simply points of data existing in isolation. Theories are much stronger and more important than facts.”
