This has been floating around for awhile, but I thought I’d share it anyway. The following cartoon illustrates near-perfectly the difficulty in using the scientific method to discover the truth with a True Believer™:
Oh, the number of times I’ve had this conversation with someone. It never ceases to amaze me how they’ll accept, without question, something their holy book says and will insist that until science has every piece of the puzzle figured out that the book is right and science in wrong. The Theory of Evolution being the most obvious example.
Doesn’t matter how much the evidence backs up science, if it doesn’t answer every little question then it’s wrong.
