    Thanks for proving my point, that LaMidrighter's argument was laughable.

    Okay, so the attitude that "we're right because of theory A, B, & C" isn't an attitude of superiority in intelligence? Dogmatism exists on your side as well, and it is the Athiest dogma that seeks to make others feel stupid for daring to believe otherwise.





    Because I do not regard them as incorrect, nor did the founding fathers, and you haven't quoted anything from the founders to the contrary.
    Because I don't need to, anyone can read them for themselves. Oh, and BTW, "I do not regard them as incorrect" does not make it correct.



    Again you demonstrate your lack of scientific education. You use the word theory as if in the scientific sense it didn't mean a well supported fact.
    Theory means it's unproven chief, and no amount of "support" means it is a fact.

    The fact that the earth is round and orbits the sun is a theory, not a law. Laws do not address such things, and no amount of support can make a theory into a law.
    Scientific Laws ARE proven as fact, the earth is round and orbits the sun, that is provable, and is fact, so it is a scientific law. Do you need to see the photos?

    Theory does NOT mean "a guess" in the scientific sense, but thanks again for proving to me that you have NO IDEA what you're talking about.
    A theory is an educated guess, I guess you didn't do all that well in science did you.



    At least I can back up my claims, how do you think insulting people, and never citing your sources makes you look?
    You're insulted huh? good, because you've come out with a smug attitude the whole time, I have given you every hint you've needed to find the correct information, but hey, go ahead, shoot the messenger.



    Why are you even on a debate forum if you're too lazy to cite your sources? What a waste of time you were... At least you were a good laugh.
    I don't need to cite what you can find, I even gave you the case, Sheesh!



    ahahahhahahah!

    Did you really just suggest that the only religious institutions the 1st Amendment applies to are the ones that congress established? HAAHAHAHAHAHHA.
    Those would be the one's NOT protected by the first, and none exist, so what are you talking about?

    Please, name me one of these religions that congress has established, please!
    None exist, but you are the one claiming that government buildings have to eliminate religious symbols under the establishment clause.

    Flawless debate tactic.

    False. I suggest you do more research. Let me help:

    As used in science, a theory is an explanation or model based on observation, experimentation, and reasoning, especially one that has been tested and confirmed as a general principle helping to explain and predict natural phenomena. Any scientific theory must be based on a careful and rational examination of the facts. A clear distinction needs to be made between facts (things which can be observed and/or measured) and theories (explanations which correlate and interpret the facts).



    A theory is an educated guess, I guess you didn't do all that well in science did you.
    Still wrong. See above.

    Another epic debate tactic.

    But could be in the eyes of the law if violence erupts, which is the overall point.

    Nice try, Wikipedia:Theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The word theory has many distinct meanings in different fields of knowledge, depending on their methodologies and the context of discussion. Broadly speaking we can say that a theory is some kind of belief or claim that (supposedly) explains, asserts, or consolidates some class of claims. Additionally, in contrast with a theorem the statement of the theory is generally accepted only in some tentative fashion as opposed to regarding it as having been conclusively established. This may merely indicate, as it does in the sciences, that the theory was arrived at using potentially faulty inferences (scientific induction) as opposed to the necessary inferences used in mathematical proofs. In these cases the term theory does not suggest a low confidence in the claim and many uses of the term in the sciences require just the opposite. However, In common usage, the word theory is often used to signify a conjecture, an opinion, a speculation, or a hypothesis. In this usage, a theory is just a claim with the additional suggestion that the claim isn't sufficiently justified to be more than a theory.
    In other words, and educated guess.







    Still wrong. See above.
    Really,
    In science the word theory is not a synonym of "fact".
    See right here.

    Just testing the level of commitment here, not debating.

    One has a right to be angry at an outrage, seems the other side is trying to defend the outrageous.

    And, yet again, you miss the point entirely.
