    Re: Scientists to unveil proof of ‘God particle’

    So now we have a god particle and a "faith" in dark matter's existence, despite its empirical non-existence.


    hmm.

    Science is sounding more like a religion every day.

    Science isn't a religion. Science looks for answers by asking questions. Religion proclaims it has all the answers already.

    We gain knowledge by having faith in things that cannot be empirically confirmed as even existing?

    I have faith in scientific method, but that faith is not the same type of faith that theists speak of or mean. To confuse the word faith when applied to science is fallacious, since obviously the majority is not talking about science as if it were a belief system comparable to religions. No one has a faith in dark matter (perhaps some new age folk do?) instead dark matter and dark energy are theories that are agreeably unproven. The fact that you are saying that scientists have some kind of faith in dark matter shows that you have really no understanding of scientific method.

    The great advantage of the scientific method is that it is unprejudiced: one does not have to believe a given researcher, one can redo the experiment and determine whether his/her results are true or false. The conclusions will hold irrespective of the state of mind, or the religious persuasion, or the state of consciousness of the investigator and/or the subject of the investigation. Faith, defined as belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence, does not determine whether a scientific theory is adopted or discarded.

    The scientific method can certainly be used in situations where the state of mind or consciousness of the participants is taken into account. It can be used to verify predictions made by those of faith.

    For instance, my faith has me believing that a 12 dimensional superstring theory will be the best fit to the collected data and Allah will turn off beta decay crashing every computer on the planet.

    Now, break out the method man...

    Who is Allah a wizard? And dont you think that turning off beta decay would do much more than restricting you from looking at porn online?

    I just wanted to state a general feeling that I'm very pleased at the scientific caliber of the participants in this thread, makes me hopeful about some querying ones I had planned for the science sub-forum.
