I see to have committed an inadvertent malapropism there. I meant to say, of course, that what is Santorum for the Goose is Santorum for the gander.

Yes, those are the people who believe the Sun is a huge light bulb and Earth was in orbit around Saturn in biblical times. Maybe you should pitch your corrupted book to them?

Oh, and have you emailed NASA yet?

It's a well-established fact that the scientific establishment hates rapey, long-dead, aluminum-siding-selling autodidacts.

Truly. It is astonishing how much global R&D spend is apparently devoted to demonstrating - directly or indirectly - that the eyes are, in fact, a sense organ.

Across the breadth and width of the Authentic Text, there is but one magic elixir (call it what you will-corollary, slide rule, or basic principle) and it is the one that peacegirl most consistently rejects. All so she can hawk her Corrupted Text for lucre. :tear:

But friends, rejoice, for this is not a true hurt to the Authentic Text, for we who interpret the Authentic Text as written by the Author and published in his lifetime consider the source!

As the True Steward of the Authentic Text, I offer each of you a shot of that refreshing tonic that is the Authentic Text, to cleanse the palate of the rancid stink of peacegirl's Corrupted Text:

It’s altogether too easy to reduce all method in science to a simple algorithm. Hypothesize, deduce (or predict), test, evaluate, conclude. It seems like a handy formula for authority. “The” Scientific Method (expressed in this way) haunts the introductions of textbooks, lab report guidelines, and science fair standards. Yet we consider it a poor model for learning about method in science.

We endorse instead teaching about Peacegirl’s Toolbox. Peacegirl draws on a suite of methods, not just one. The methods also include lying, making shit up, babbling about levers, failure to recognize patterns, ignorance, blind faith and cherry-picking, raw data distortion, abusing her insane asylum computer privileges, experimental drinking, pure idiocy and (yes) quoting an online nutbag who thinks that pi equals 4, among others.

peacegirl, do you agree with your source Douglas Allchin that "Photons from a nova, en route hundreds of millions of years, reach human retinal cells on Earth long after the star is extinguished?"

If "the" scientific method can't evolve to embrace the verbose pontifications of a chronically butthurt aluminum siding salesman/donkey with a laughably overgenerous view of his own capabilities, an overpowering desire to bend "very young" goils over the dining room table, and the iconoclasm to challenge the reality of so-called "date rape," then "the" scientific method needs to go.
