Yeh, Wilson - he was the President I meant!

I always also like to illustrate the size of the war reparations this way.

Germany finished paying them last year. That pretty much sums it up.

A president is flawed just like a pedophile? Does that make them the same?

" I point out the flaws to prove that it is not completely bulletproof so that It just all depends on opinion"

The thing is, nobody is claiming it is bulletproof.You're wasting your time lingering on this thought. And it doesn't depend on opinion, because your opinion can be wrong. How does one determine whether an opinion is right or wrong? The scientific method.

" To you science is the best, others the koran, torah, bible, fate, luck or what ever they believe guides the world"

My opinion is irrelevant. Science is demonstrably the best. It is the most reliable system for answers that we have. Why? Because of evidence. If you had people accept one religious claim as truth, people would have to accept all religious claims as truth, considering they are all very similar with just about the same level of evidence...anecdotal. But there is a standard of qualitative evidence that must be given before a claim is accepted as truth. Yes, you guessed it, the scientific method is used to verify the quality.

" All in all humanity will never truly understand the world and will create things to make it seem like they understand a bit more and saying that your way is the best is like saying red is the best color. "

I'm not sure that you have the knowledge to make such a claim. Why couldn't we one day know everything? Why couldn't we one day "truly understand the world"? And again, it isn't my way, it is a tool. Science uncovers knowledge. Religion uncovers belief. There is a difference between belief and knowledge. Knowledge is a subset of belief. Belief refers to opinion, assertions while knowledge refers to facts discovered by evidence.

Science uses knowledge to grow, expand and evolve as new information is processed. Religion uses belief and often never changes it's way of thinking unless science has forced it into a corner.

The two couldn't be more different.

Science and religion are not related because the definitions of both are completely separate and unrelated.This sounds like a super hero movie cliche with the main villain trying to convince the hero that they are similar, or the same.

"science has always relied on the belief that what we found at that moment is correct. "

This is irrelevant to my post. Regardless if it is flawed, it is the best system that we have. That was my point. And further, science in the past may have gotten things wrong, but it is also science that corrects those very mistakes.

So what is your point? Pointing out that science has made mistakes seems silly to me, it is pretty much common knowledge, I don't know many people who would disagree.

Well because of my movie villain cliche it puts science at the same level as every other belief because it is flawed just like the others. I point out the flaws to prove that it is not completely bulletproof so that It just all depends on opinion. To you science is the best, others the koran, torah, bible, fate, luck or what ever they believe guides the world. All in all humanity will never truly understand the world and will create things to make it seem like they understand a bit more and saying that your way is the best is like saying red is the best color.

In all im just creating counter points to make the discussion my interesting.
