: Nope. I'm saying that hypothesis testing allows the creation of models
: which are more predictive than non-hypothesis testing derived models.
More predictive in what they choose to predict. Will your models predict
how many reincarnations it will take me to get to Nirvana? Perhaps I
regard that as far more important then something so transient as human
life and material comfort.
ps. Christianity itself did not concern itself with the physical nature
of the world or evolution or astronomy or any of that stuff you enjoy
knocking it about, outside of the first few chapters. Some christian
churches did, and did so for transient political reasons. Would it
suprise you many christians are quite embarrassed about creationism?
