Thank you. Someone else not dealing in absolutes.
|1 hour 36 min ago||One guy said religion and||
One guy said religion and other factors can lead to people dismissing science.
You asked what other reasons besides religion could people reject science.
I said ignorance. Although, while I am ingnorant on the matter, I do not dismiss it.
And the "theory" thing wasn't a crack towards anyone. I am sorry if you took offense to it. But as I stated, I am not educated enough in the matter to say one way or the other that evolution is the only possibile way I can sit here and even have this conversation with you. So in lamens terms, I view it as a theory. And that is why I called it that.
|1 hour 49 min ago||Where did I ridicule anyone||
Where did I ridicule anyone who doesn't share my ignorance on the subject? I am not going to take time out of my life to learn about evolution, because honestly, I do not care about that stuff. But ignorance is just 1 reason people may blindly reject evolution when given a religous background.
|2 hours 16 sec ago||So that is the only possible||
So that is the only possible way we have ended up where we are as humans. Okay. I believe you.
|2 hours 1 min ago||I have no interest in the||
I have no interest in the subject. Kill me I guess.
|2 hours 5 min ago||Great pun. Loved it. See||
Great pun. Loved it. See below re: gravity for my sarcastic retort.
But why am I in the wrong here? Blindly accepting something is no better than blindly rejecting it.
|2 hours 25 min ago||No, but that is because I||
No, but that is because I haven't mastered how to trick my mind into thinking gravity doesn't exist yet. Working on it though.

Not an anti-vaxxer. Just hate needles.
And yes, (thanks for the link) but I do understand theories in science, I just believe in my own heart that there is a possiblity that one day in the future, people may laugh at evolution as the reason people walk the earth. And as long as that exists as a possibility, I cannot truely accept evolution based on my knowledge*. I do not see the problem with that.
* My knowledge on evolution is that one finch has a big beak, and another has a small beak, and that means we are advanced monkeys and everyone believes it.
|2 hours 37 min ago||Uneducation in certain||
Uneducation in certain subjects should not, but often do, lead to people reject said subject matter. That's how I was answering your original question. Like the gentleman stated above, religion and uneducation (other factors) can cause some to dismiss it.
I merely stated that I am neutral based on my education of the matter, because I am not comfortable in blindly following theories as letters of the law.

I wasn't under the assumption that cancer is still a theory. And also, no I do not believe in flu shots.

The Big Ten has only had 12 teams (so the opportunity to beat 11 different B1G teams, not win 11 games over B1G opponents) for only 3 years.
|3 hours 11 min ago||I neither reject or accept||
I neither reject or accept evolution, based on the fact that I have not studied it nearly enough to draw my own conclusion.
So that may be a reason.
|3 hours 16 min ago||Someone above mentioned that||
Someone above mentioned that this show is geared to end up in classrooms. While I agree that there are a bunch of these types of shows, to kind of lump it all together for a classroom setting into one show is a good idea. And while the original Cosmos is probably the best option to put into the classrooms, kids are going to check out once they see some dude who talks slow and funny* in a standard definition-VHS quality tape. Updating it will only help the cause IMO.
*All respect to Carl Sagan, but as a younger person who has never watched him on TV before yesterday as I watched some of the old re-runs, he annoyed the shit out of me the way that he talked. Slow, and deliberate, almost monotone. He put me right to sleep. Maybe that was just a first impression, and hopefully I can get the chance to have him grow on me more, and gain some of the same prestige others on this board share for him.

That's a pretty great CSB. Thanks for sharing.
I've always wanted to be able to sit close enough to hear those types of exchanges.
|3 hours 28 min ago||All set. Thanks.||
All set. Thanks.
[EDIT]: Sounds like it is going to be great. I can't wait to watch it.
Now they just need to do one on the Russian Five, the road they took to get to the States and out of Russia, outlining their ridiculous puck possession skills, what happened to Vladdie, and how the team won it for im the following season.
|3 hours 44 min ago||Isn't "spaceship imagination"||
Isn't "spaceship imagination" how they got around the universe in the original Cosmos series? Yeah, it is magic-schoolbus-esque, but that is the point, and kind of the root of the show.
Without the spaceship, it just wouldn't be Cosmos.

That link takes you back to this page.
|4 hours 12 min ago||Boring||
IMO. It was quite boring. But I love all things outer space related. So I watch the universe, and any show possible on the "Cosmos" that I can. I also watched the old Cosmos marathon they were showing on National Georaphic while I was hungover all day.
So basically it was boring to me because I knew everything they went over. Which what else could you expect? The first episode, they have to go over the basics to get people not so well versed in the subject caught up.
That being said, it seemed they did a nice job. I am excited to be glued to my TV every sunday night, being able to watch anything other than another American Idol retread, or Dating Game reality bull crap.
Come on America, keep on raising that bar!

No mention of how we actually beat everyone in the Big Ten for the first time since 1992? C'mon Brian. Get your head in the game.
|6 hours 22 min ago||Just no.||
Come on people. The season is done in 1 month. He is running. But hasn't been practicing. As much as I would love to have him back, 1 month is not enough to get you 100% in game shape. And this is the wrong time of the year to put someone in as a trial to get him back up to game speed.
THAT BEING SAID! I am super happy that he is up and running. Whether it be here or in the NBA, I can't wait to see the big puppy flying around the court again!

I say C-Wood all the time. Or Woodson. Or Charles. Or Charles Woodson. or Ole' Charlie Woodson. Or Number 2. Or G.O.A.T. Or My favorite player. Or, well that's about it. But I can make up a few more if you would like.
