    I just don't see how science's day will come. The medical field will always demand it.... transportation will always demand science to improve... manufacturing.... ergonomics.... alternative energy... food... entertainment...space travel...

    Since when have humans ever stopped demanding new technologies? That will be the day science dies.... e.g. never.

    Ohhh, maybe ur talking about those hippie anti-technology back-to-the-earth off-the-grid movements. That's come and passed. Science and tech won.

    I'm a mod, and you get complaints. So I notice it.

    Doesn't make me win the convo. Just explains how I get to reading lark.... thru the Reported Posts section, lol.

    I still don't like people picking on Lark tho, unless I'm doing it, because at least he has some intellectual firepower and is interested in politics when there are so few true politcos on this site. I know it's not a politics forum, but still.

    I think we all need to get back to the topic of this thread... which is not Lark.

    Thanks mucho.

    He made a reference but gave no details. This doesn't violate any site rules.

    So, what's your take on women and possibly men using a hair of the dog methodology to offset body image issues, potentially body dysmorph?

    I think you're confusing and conflating technology and science, you reckon there wasnt any technology before the enlightenment or science took up its present predominance, how you figure the pyramids got built? Stone henge? Wait, was it magic? You know the way that was way back in the Dark Ages.

    You got the Lark Envy

    It's hard to separate tech from science, and both have been around since humanity, we just formalized the scientific method more recently. I don't know where you get the idea that I think tech and scientific application hasn't always been here. Back when the wheel was invented, that was a scientific application; there was experimentation, logic was implemented, and it was applied. The pyramids, same deal. Stone hedge, same deal.

    Why would I reckon there wasn't tech before the Enlightenment? Science, even before it became a more formalized systematic study, and tech has been around forever.... even back with apes figuring out how to use tools for food collecting.

    No, it doesn't break any rules. I just thought it was a cheap shot.
