    Unfortunately science loses much of my respect by suggesting that everything must be able to be proven by science.

    In the summer of 1991 my family gad an unusual experience while on vacation in PA. For more than a decade we all agreed on what we saw, then my youngest brother became a scientist and decided that he couldn't have seen what he saw because science doesn't believe in ghosts.

    Faith is belief without proof. That's where so many maje a midtake..... Trying to prove something that us based on Faith.

    What's the purpose of faith if its conclusions cannot be proven, deciphered, explained?

    Science gives us a tool to understand the world conclusively, and at the same time improve our quality of life and give some meaning to our life on this little rocky planet among billions of little rocky planets.

    Yeah, well that's sort of how science works. If you want to do science, you have to play by science rules. And you have to admit that the scientific method really hasn't been half bad at doing what it does. Following that strict regimen has resulted in all those advances you find convenient, from combustion to modern medicine to the computer you're typing on right now. Science just allowed me to travel from Europe to my home in 24 hours. It would have 15 hours, but United Air is a piece of crap company that couldn't organize an orgy in a crowd of nymphomaniacs, but I digress.

    As for the rest of your post, a lot of us have seen or experienced some strange things, but there really isn't much point in talking about them in any concrete sense, in my opinion, as there's no real world context to apply them to. So I don't deny that I saw what I saw, but I just sort of quietly accept them and sit on them. Anyway, if what we call paranormal is in fact real, scientific methods will evolve to the point that they can study it. You can't blame science for not being as advanced as you would like it to be. It can only move as as quickly as people can learn.

    Now you're going in circles. I answered this already.

    Evolution HAS been proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

    Dilemma solved.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    This is an absolute lie! Only an unreasonable person would believe that matter created itself.

    I'm pretty sure no one said that it did.

    The lie I was referring to was the statement that evolution has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt. If this were true, there wouldn't be nearly as much discussion about this topic throughout the Internet and the world.

    Are you saying that a large number of people doubting evolution means that evolution itself is less valid?
