But the application of science as a tool to discover this universe is for damn sure the best way to learn ANYTHING. If you disagree, get in the sack.

    I have reservations about your use of the word “ANYTHING.”

    You’re welcome to those reservations, but I’d prefer an example of a situation where searching for evidence of something (e.g. science) is inferior to some other “way of knowing”. And an example of what that other “way of knowing” is, and how it is at all superior to searching for evidence.

    Hey Jason, are you in a fighting mood? Your last few posts have outright challenged anyone to disagree. Does someone need a hug?

    I get a bit pugnacious now and then, yeah, but it usually doesn’t last. I wrote a lot of these in advance. While I was in the thick of the fight with Peter. So, yeah, kinda.

    Yeah you are in a mood or yeah you need a hug?
    Both?

    Not so much in a mood now, but then. Could always use a hug though.
