    I brought that up to a faith-based friend.  I said that one of my favorite definitions of science is the ability to admit you're wrong.  Two days later he emailed to say that he looked it up in the dictionary, and that wasn't an actual definition of science.

    I haven't stopped head-slapping since.

      They seem to believe that human beings are born in sin, and that our works are inherently flawed. Truth can only be found in written scripture; The Bible, The (original) U.S. Constitution, and... the dictionary.
