Poking the bloated corpse of religion with a pointy stick to hear it fart.

Prove it or Don’t

on November 17, 2012

We make educated guesses at what the gaps in science might be. Eventually the technology catches up and we check to see if the educated guesses, based on prior data, match the actual answers.

Da Vinci figured out how an aeroplane would work, but didn’t have the technology to build one. Many years later & his scientific extrapolation was proved right.

Religion, on the other hand, has never been proven right. All the things that were once associated with Godly miracles, have slowly but surely been proved to have scientific basis and nothing miraculous at all.

Go figure.

    Erm, actually it’s “interpolate” when the numbers you’re seeking are within the sequence.

      It was a tough call on int or ext.

      In the example I used numbers, but I was trying to cover all research in the comment, not just numerical data.

      In the end I went with artisticlicencetrapolate!
