Thread Name: BS: BBC v. Jeremy Clarkson.
Subject: RE: BS: BBC v. Jeremy Clarkson.
"It is my understanding that observational science had always regarded such preservation as impossible, and it was only the confirming of said phenomenon that caused evolutionists to search for some mechanism that will validate their deep time belief. But presumably we can at least agree that such mechanism has not been found, and that the under wraps new dino find is unlikely to alter that."
pete, keep repeating to yourself: "Science is NOT a belief system. Science is NOT a belief system. Science is NOT a belief system ..."
And once that concept is lodged firmly in your thick, fanatical, fundamentalist little head (It's not yet, is it? Despite our best efforts!)then contemplate the truism that science IS an open-minded, open-ended system for investigating reality. IF soft tissue has been found preserved in dinosaur bones, then the scientists concerned have made an interesting, and possibly ground-breaking, discovery. If it turns out that they are mistaken about having found soft tissue preserved in dinosaur bones then they HAVEN'T made an interesting, and possibly ground-breaking, discovery (although the discovery may mean something else entirely). Nevertheless, the discovery (whatever it means) almost certainly does NOT allow anyone to dismiss the the whole of modern science and conclude that the translated, re-translated and mis-translated myths and legends of some bronze-age, middle-eastern goat herders, recorded in an old book, must be right!
