The skeptical scientist

. . . "when did "skeptic" become a dirty word in science? When did a skeptic require quotation marks around him or her? Skepticism lies at the very heart of science."
[Michael Crichton - State of Fear: E-Book Extra - "Aliens Cause Global Warming"]

  1. That's quite true, so how about being skeptical about evolution?

    If you search around on the internet, you'd find that just about all of the claims made in favor of it have been proven false (a good website would be, not to mention the fact that Charles Darwin himself, in his book On the Origin of Species stated that if we don't find any fossils of half-formed creatures then his whole theory collapses, and after a whole century we haven't found any.

    Just a thought.
