Why do people treat the scientific method as some kind of universal solution to everything when in fact it is flawed?

Genetics in general disprove evolution. The only way to ”prove” it is by making up scenarios in a computer or to insert billions of improbable mutation events wherever you cannot close the gaps.

>I've never heard of genetic homeostasis. Kind of ironic that there is a genetic process that prevents speciation.
Think of it in terms of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

We simplify it so that people think that if something evolves a benefical trait then it will proliferate across the species and if it evolves an undesirable one it won't. The reality is many desirable traits die out before they can establish themselves in a species, and contrary to popular belief, many undesirables ones don't and do become established. The hallmark of evolution is that more desirable traits propergate than undesirable ones and this is in large part due to Darwin's theory, 'survival of the fittest', you are less likely to survive to adulthood (and reproduce) if you have undesirable traits compared to a specimen that has desirable ones.

To put it in human terms; just because you're stronger/smarter than someone else doesn't mean you're guaranteed to reproduce more than them (assuming you do at all).

Still waiting on your theory.

>science is a religion for atheists
I for one am not an atheist, oh fool who has been brainwashed and indoctrinated for most, if not all of his life, by kosher filth. I'm an Agnostic.
Faith is by no means a bad thing, but its what you believe and have faith in that matters, NOT just believing in something. Also, The Bible never says where exactly heaven is. Facts don't change and numbers by their own dont' lie. Just because someone misinterprets some pieces of data doesn't automatically invalidate it.You by your faith in the worthless Jesus of Nazareth (as with Muslims having faith in and their praying 5 times a day to ""ALLAH"") are giving energy to human hating entities that don't really care about you in ernest; you have been manipulated and lied to by the Jews/Hebes and their Reptilian masters.

What are the best resources and textbooks for learning about synthetic biology and nanoscience/nanotechnology? The wiki doesn't have anything on those.

Also, what other /sci/ boards are out there?

Scientists have long proven the negative effect of radiation on humans. It is enough to recall the accident in Chernobyl and the number of people who participated in the elimination of the consequences of the disaster, who fell ill with radiation sickness. So thats why I bought geiger counter on https://ecotestgroup.com/products/agent-r/ for checking level of radiation

So I've read the n:th alarmist article about how robots will replace some 800 M people before 2030 and so fucking on. It will be an endless summer citizen's wage afternoon until the AI exterminates us and so fucking on.

Tell you why this is not going to happen?

we can see the precursor for the robot revolution right now. people should put down the screens. there is evidence they are being used to brainwash and manipulate people against their best interests. it could be argued that it is the most powerful weapon of warfare being used on the stage today simply because of it's pervasiveness and almost ubiquitous use across all the world.

and what happens? the owners of the screens win because they have power over the mind. the robots will also have power over the mind in that they will do hard jobs easily which feels nice not to have to do hard jobs. but in that pleasure will come the pain of losing your usefulness to society and your being discarded and the horrible pain of withering away.

do you ever ask yourselves why we are here because what is happening here cannot possibly be of any merit or value? it's just evil run amok and why else should that be other than to teach a lesson?

if i had power i would squash it out and so would any other. but in my leadership my errors would come to light because i am not perfect. and in those failures would i be the cause of pain and sorrow and misfortune.

the answer is that none of us can be god. and we have to have the power to become god, yet never once touch the temptation of it, to ever return to our souls.

or maybe nothing matters in which case fuck you all, i'll believe my story because it makes me feel better. you can do coke and fuck whores. everyone has their drug then, right? pretty sure your habits fuck you up just as much as believing there's some purpose to your suffering.

Man, you sure are a capitalism bootlicker if you think your only worth to society is your slave labor. Or perhaps you lack the imagination to figure out how you can improve the lives of those around you other than punching a clock and earning a paycheck.

I'm looking for the name of the persons in this story.

In the summer of 1995, there was a family of three that toured Europe in search for a "alternative" cures. The daughter had a huge stomach tumour. She looked pregnant and had to be ride in a stroller.

The authorities took away the custody of her. And she had to take tumour shrinking meds before the tumour could be removed. Because it was so entangled in the organs.

Pic unrelated, because it is prettier to look at than random tumour pics.

I'm guessing HVAC repair would be the best STEM major for you. Really though, study what you want to learn about. Look at your college's 300 (or 3000) level classes and above. Decide which ones you want to do. Find twenty of those in the same major and that's your major. If you can't find a job after you graduate sign up at your local state U for a master's certificate in something you can get a job at. (not master's degree, certificates are 5 -6 classes, about a year / tear and a half of night school)

You want to find a nice girl to marry and a job that people are going to need you for.

You don't need to tell everyone your second degree is mathematics. If you think a second degree in mathematics is going to help you do something people need, then go for it. But the degree itself is just bragging and misleading. It's not the degree. It's you.

You are the ship you need to sail. We do not all sail the same. Master your craft, whatever it is, and people will like you.

It is a planet from a philosophical perspective but not the scientific perspective..
So before science was mature, it was probably called a planet.

Back before we knew of other planets there were three* entities in the sky, the sun, the moon and stars. The sun and moon are pretty unique in the sky, it's hard to get them mixed up with anything else. Stars were a different matter and came in two varieties, (fixed) stars and wandering stars:

- (Fixed) stars are the stars we know today, static points of light that barely move relative to each other even as the night sky itself moves.

- Wandering stars were "stars" that appeared to move across the night sky. These are what we have since identified as planets, comets and such.

*in some early cultures clouds were also treated as part of the same sky.

I am making a table with hexagons spaced 3/16th of an inch apart filled with epoxy. The table is approx. 30" deep and 6' long. I need to know the volume of epoxy required to pour 1/4" thick for this table.

Why not cover it with plastic. Pour water in to the depth you need. Pour the water into a measuring cup and maybe add a little more for the wetted volume on the water not in the measuring cup. Fast, cheap accurate.

volume = height * (length*width - nHexagons * areaOfASingleHexagon)

The area of a hexagon is 3*sqrt(3)/2*a^2, where a is the length of one side.

But really you're going to make too much epoxy, so just get it close and then add a little more to be safe. I'm guessing you've done this before, but if you don't degas your epoxy before you pour it, you're not going to get the results you want.

Why the everloving fuck would you subject anyone to the imperial system and then use a conversion calculator when he can measure in centimeters and then end up with volume in cubic centimeters, which is already equal to the volume in mL by definition?
