"Perhaps you would like to read history books with a mindset that might give more credit to our ancestors who paved the way for our current understanding of the world."

Yeah, absolutely. The explorers and scientists of the past that paved the way for our current knowledge, and they did the best they could with what they had. Similarly, we do the best we can with what we have. And centuries from now, scientists of the day will look back at us the same way.

So, I have no problem with past science - as long as it stays in the past. When people accept obvious anachronisms as truth (creationism) it becomes not an issue of curiousity and objectivity but an issue of closed-mindedness and subjectivity.

Jisbond, where do you see evidence for god? All is self-sustaining. Beyond the big bang, a God is simply not neccesary.
