    Red wine is okay too.

    I wish to point out a correlation: the British are big tea drinkers, they had an Empire; the French and Spanish are big red wine drinkers, they had empires.

    Tannins.

    It's mind control.

    Astrology for me in on the same field of religion. Most of the stuff can't be falsified because the scientific method can't be applied to it properly. What experiments would you try to do exactly? It'll only become statistics. It's a little like studying psychology really until neuroscience pinpoints every function, which is unlikely...

    Mechanisms have been speculated by astrologists for ages. Because it's complex though, some just don't bother with it at all. They just use it. Astrology really is more of an intuition study, rather than a logical study.

    PS. The moon having a major effect on the human body isn't completely true. Although I still love the word lunatic
    Placebo effect? Basically it's argued that surrounding bodies would have larger gravitation effects on us than these large celestial bodies, therefore it couldn't be a result of gravity. There'd have to be something else.

    Not eveything is designed for so called scientific experiments (which is partly the point), because science isn't very advanced. So maybe you should have a think about how you would test it to you satisfaction. Actually the Op seemes to have put their money where their mouth is.

    If we were to beleive in science - NOTHINg would advance and the world would still be flat. It's only pushing beyond what science can do that we ever discover anything.

    I'm not a person who wants to be limited by someone ruler. I'm a bright, intellegent, numerate girl. I learned what it s about, and see that it works more often than it doesn't, which is good enough for me.

    Falsifiable means that something could be theoretically proven false.

    Science is the most advanced thing we have at the current moment.

    Society as a whole advances thanks to science, not to lack of it. Let us look at the time period where educated people had been persecuted. Yeah, we get the dark ages, which are the golden age of advancement if I have to say so myself. If there was no science, you'd be living in a cave with a club in one hand shitting yourself that a bear wouldn't come close to you.

    Technically, you just got yourself a different ruler.

    Yes it is. At least, it would be if you spelled it right (I think you mentioned you had dyslexia, so no offense intended).

    Definition is as Darjur said above.

    I find this statement very humorous. I guess that computer you use to type that doesn't actually exist? The internet? A figment of imagination. Electricity? Impossible to harness. The food you eat? Caught and prepared individually. Cars, trains, airplanes, boats, etc? Fantasy. *insert almost anything made today*

    I guess you're actually dead though, from all those diseases that you didn't get treated because treatments don't exist, so it doesn't really matter anyway. But wait, what are diseases? Clearly it was evil spirits that caused your ailments.

    I don't know - I know all the other NT's will want to wash my mouth out with soap and water, but as far as I can see, Science, is right up there with religion in terms of schools of thought to narrow the mind.....

    And no science is not responcible for new development, they would happen without, it's simply a ruler....

    go-ahead, let rip

    Well, science is but one method of generating development. There are others. Have I mentioned tannins before? They open new vistas to the mind.
