2. Alerted on as a personal attack...

...someone was obviously offended by your simple question.

4. CW likely thinks it doesn't deserve an answer. Neither do I, but...

I'm bored.

You asked-

"5. Can one reject a scientific theory without being a 'science denier'?"

Any particular theory? Theories exist to be challenged, and there are often competing theories.

Theories, though, unlike hypotheses, faith, and wild-ass guesses, are evolved from observation and measurement and built upon solid fact.

So, one can reject, say, the Big Bang if one can come up with a reasonable alternative. Newtonian gravity was rejected when Einstein showed proofs of relativity. Earth as the center of the universe was once an accepted theory.

Scientists love to reject longstanding theories, since if they pull it off the Nobel is just the start of vast fame and riches.

8. Hurry and delete this comment!

 

Otherwise I might realize that the only reason you could have chuckled is because you saw what that comment was in regards to. Thus showing you didn't put me on ignore as you so gleefully said you would.

Hurry!

13. Apologies, but I am five hours ahead of the east coast of the States

And, as you might notice from my sports thread, I spent my evening watching the match.

Since my response in the thread yesterday, I’ve been formulating a more comprehensive post that I’ll have up in a few hours. Hopefully it will be interesting enough (and it is an interesting question) to generate some discussion,
