From Reconciling understandings of Scripture and Science
Jump to navigationJump to search

QMS: is our place for arguments against Evolution and other mainstream science on scientific grounds.
For the decision to have this separate place in the wiki see this discussion.


"Mainstream Science" — a working definition
"Mainstream Science" is what's taught in the relevant faculties of Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Yale, Sydney, Melbourne and Gulargambone universities, as seen in the textbooks used for their undergraduate courses. Questioning that is questioning mainstream science. Note that Science can say nothing about the supernatural.

(Why did we need a definition? To avoid exasperating arguments about whether speculations based on religious dogma were "just as scientific" or even "true science"!)
