This isn’t even remotely true.


I told you the reasons for why that is true, what is your argument?

If that were even remotely true it would have been impossible to from the first manned flight in 1903 to transcontinental commercial jets in 50 years. Most of science isn’t Hollywood style eureka moments. It’s small incremental steps of tested and then accepted facts. Even your example of Galileo is overly simplified. Most of the church authorities accepted his findings, they just didn’t want him blabbing about it and wanted him to approach it as some sort of weird, non overlapping majesteria. In fact his findings were accepted in many parts of the world within years.


If you understand something well enough, you can explain it in a simple way. Can you not admit science has its flaws? Is science perfect in your view?
I thought the first thing scientists do, is to admit ignorance, and how flawed everything is.

How does that even relate to what I posted?
