The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    By whom? Well lets see here cornell university, university of the truth, could giva sh*t foundation. I don't remember every single report I hear and remember the source, and you don't either, thats asinine! I test the validity of a report if it is done by a legit university, there not biased.

    Well TreeTrunks, for one thing, science HAS come to a concensus on the shape of the earth and the ratio of a circumference of a circle to it's diameter to at least one decimal place.

    Yes, man, specifically, cartographers and mathemeticians.

    If complete concensus is a criteria for truth then most of what is contained in religion is not true because different religions say things differently.

    If you took a subset of what IS agreed upon by all religions and what is agreed upon in science, you would find that these two world views can coexist in harmony.

    "So man could create any answer to fit what he desired. Just because you make up a name or a number doesn't make it science fact or a breakthrough in science, it means you named something."

    Language is no different. God is just a term created by man used to describe something.

    Sorry if I'm losing you. The point is that our limited human minds have fabricated God to the best of our imagination. It's hard to get the masses to worship the abstract as opposed to the tangible.

    Anyhow, if you study carefully, there is far more concensus in the scientific community than their is between religions at least when it comes to a model of the Universe.

    If there were no disagreement in science then our models would never evolve.

    There is disagreement in religion but most religious claims are not testible which is why little if any progress is made by religious groups.

    As individuals, however, we can do a comparative study and take the best elements of all for our own benefit.

    To further the degeneration of the thread, I'll check my temp files.

    I wasn't being a smartass, dickhead. It's a quote from Tommy Boy, which I was watching at the moment. I don't think anyone here has any doubt about your reading capabilities. Analytical thinking, maybe. But reading, no. Even Corky from Life Goes On could read with a little help from Hooked on Phonics...

    Maybe you get them but I don't and thus its ineffective to me.
    Thus proving the point.
