From Scientia Natura: Scientific versus Religious Methods. First, the religious methods:

Unfortunately, it’s also more difficult to explain to the layperson, due to the specialization and complexity of scientific knowledge. When the general public is also constantly inundated with assertions that they’re going to hell if they don’t accept the Biblical account, the challenge is doubly tough.

  1. I love it! I think the science diagram should have a few more steps and such added on, however, the diagram suggesting that if you do one experiment and the evidence supports your hypothesis, you have an instant theory. Perhaps it should say “experiment, rinse, repeat” or something, hah. In any case, I think it’s neat, and anything that lessens the amount of times I have to hear “it’s only a theory” will help my poor brain.
