    Like real scientists, I was pretty sure I knew what the results were going to be.
    Umm- that's not real science, though. That's religion. The only time that a real scientist would be "pretty sure" would be if they had designed a particular experiment to produce a particular result.

    Ya know, it's funny- I don't own a gun, only fired one a couple of times, have no interest in ever owning one- but this kinda smugness really makes me wanna vote against whatever is being pushed.

    Enjoy your day.

      As in "I will test Newton's theory of gravitation. I expect that my results will show that F = G ( M1 M2) / r^2"

      It's a VERY rare experiment that does not have a set of expected results. Actually, the very construction of an experiment demands that there be some sort of expected result.

      "I will test for sunlight" expects a "Yes" when the lab is an open field at noon and expects a "No" when the lab is a sealed room a hundred feet underground at 2am.
