Nice nebula you shared with us. We would still be in the Dark Ages without any number of scientific minds who keep advancing our knowledge base of this universe in which we are spinning.

Science always reexamines the evidence, Science always questions the outcome, Science always looks for possible different answers.
Remember that the next time someone says "There is a consensus and it should not be up for debate."
 
True that, Phil.

The science is settled. Pies are better than cake.
Depends on the pie, Depends on the cake.
Boston Cream Pie is not Pie, and Cheesecake is not cake.
From Wikipedia on cheesecake:
The early Greeks considered it a cake. Some modern authors point to the presence of many eggs, the sole source of leavening, as proof that it is a torte. Still others claim that the separate crust, the soft filling, and the absence of flour prove that it is a custard pie

There are two types of science. One is observational science which produces those things that are useful and valuable. Then there is theoretical science which is concerned with theories and conjecture and attempts to provide theoretical answers for questions which observational science has or can produce no real answers. Observational Science can and does benefit mankind, theoretical science does not.

It it is important to understand the two types of science and their respective roles. Science can tell us how things work the way they do and by what means things occur. But by observational science we can never arrive at an answer for the basic question of why it is so. Or where it all comes from, because we can not and will not discover those answers through Observational science.

so in essence I enjoy and promote the work of observational science, and care not at all for theoretical science.
 
Try original quote is erroneous

TRUTH is true whether you believe in it or not.

Science is a methodology that endeavors to discover the truth, it is not unto itself a truth. Applied incorrectly, science will actually take you away from the truth. Applied correctly, and it most certainly can uncover what is true.

Is that a Niel Degrasse quote?
