BaruchYou reject evidence you find inconvenient ....Thu May 31, 2012 06:35126.96.36.199I accept all evidence, even anecdotal or irrational. Anecdotal evidence can't be reproduced in a controlled lab experiment (but neither can the Big Bang nor can Macro Evolution). The scientific method focuses only on the quantifiable and rational by choice. This narrowness can be useful, but isn't a panacea. Don't confuse me with an Evangelical Christian ... though I am a theist and an American and influenced by the Bible ;-) Science makes metaphysical assumptions, since it is impossible to even have a thought or make a statement in any language, without metaphysical assumptions. Now one can, and I have said as an argument, consciously make assumptions "as if". One could do that with Allah or Jesus. But I didn't say that is what I do. In most cases people do this unconsciously. If applied rigorously, your standard would deny all thought and all language, it is nihilism. But please don't be rigorous. I don't want you to conclude that everything is unreal, even though it is, because you wouldn't have the right definition of un-reality. It would be like giving up meat, without being a vegetarian.
