"The scientific method is: "a method or procedure that has characterized natural science since the 17th century, consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of*hypotheses.
The chief characteristic which distinguishes the scientific method from other methods of acquiring knowledge is that scientists seek to let reality speak for itself, supporting a theory when a theory's predictions are confirmed and challenging a theory when its predictions prove*false.*"
In this thread, I was not looking for an opinion initially.
I put a little happy face after the comment about that just so no one would get offended.
Yet, there was still a percentage who took offense.
I chalk that up as a tiny minority of hurt feelings as this has to be the highest traffic home brew website on the interwebs. All in all, the general population of visitors on this website doesn't really care about this thread.
