Yesterday the world was flat. Today it is spherical.
Yesterday the Sun moved about the Earth. Today itís the other

science. In other words, ballots donít determine facts.
Science has no truth. The closest approaches to truth in science
are its principles. A scientific principle withstands repeated
testing, but it is understood that every experiment that validates
a principle is limited by the experimenter. Unless the
experimenter is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent, the
scientific principle is still no more than a best guess. A proof, or
the formal evidence of truth, may exist in the lofty ether of higher
math, but a proof never tumbles out of the scientific method.
Therefore science has no truth, and thereís no such thing as a
Religion, on the other hand, is all about truth, and here
