Who even cares about most science? It'll all be re-written in ten or twenty years like it has consistently been throughout history. Rely on your intuition. Our intuition is the product of millions of years of evolution and it won't let us down as much as science has.

 

It's successes far outweighs it's failures.

I wonder if you and your buddies will still be saying that after humanity is annihilated in a nuclear war. Oh, wait, we'll all be dead!

Mother nature will get us before that happens.

 

 

It's not scientists who will start a nuclear war.

It doesn't matter who makes the weapons. It matters that humanity isn't ready for them. If scientists can't see that they're not much better. Would you give a child a loaded bazooka? I think not.

May I suggest my cure for the FRIEND ZONE...DUCT TAPE. Turning "NO-NO-NO" into "MMM-MMM-MMM" since 1943. I'm sure your parents won't notice the extra noise in the basement.

If you were not so tragically ignorant of the history of science, you would see that it is an iterative process which keeps getting closer and closer to the truth, like a "bisect" equation-solver computer algorithm.  It does not make random changes, and every time science has improved itself, it was through continuing to apply the scientific method.  There has never been a time when science was proven wrong by using non-science methods.

 

Intuition had 5,000 years to explain to us what causes lightning, and the best it could ever come up with was "angry gods".  The modern scientific method began with people like Galileo, and it figured out electromagnetism in a few hundred years.

Yea, and when these scientists discover what they think is the truth they'll force it down the throats of everyone, namely children and teenagers who are barely capable of patching together a proper worldview without the absurdity and complexity of modern "science," and then create a kind of loathsome absolutism based on scientific "truth" that will lead to the ostracism and exclusion of any and all non-believers. In other words, they'll create a religion out of it. It's already happening to a degree. It's easily visible if you have an open mind.

 

Now, if our universe were characterized by love and beauty that would be acceptable. It's not. It's characterized by black and empty space, cold and uncaring depths, and almost nothing, aside from a planet here or there, that would make a proper home for a human being. Knowing this, and simply being aware of the direction science continuously moves in, it is a safe guess that science will do little more than continue to uncover colder and darker "truths"; and these "truths" will do little more than inspire nihilism and hedonism in minds that can't handle them (most minds).

 

Every single human being on Earth covers their mind and the holes in their beliefs with illusions and delusions, most of which are healthy and fine, and what science aims to do is remove these illusions and delusions; and then replace them with cold, black, and uncaring "truths" with the intention to intellectually immobilize you while an apathetic view of the universe has its way with you. In other words, these scientists want to emotionally and intellectually rape you with their "truth." I can't respect that and I admire anyone who resists it.

 

Furthermore, this desire for "truth" isn't universally shared, but these "truths" have been and will be universally forced upon us. Most people do not want these scientific "truths," but that doesn't matter. They will be forced upon everyone and the scientists (more accurately the powers behind them) will do their best to eliminate that which is natural and right and replace it all with toxic intellectual constructs that do little but inspire apathy and stupidity. I think it's safe to say that most would be much better off without having their beliefs and worldview savagely raped by "science."

 

I have to wonder about people who force these "truths" on everyone. I think they secretly want to do something else.. It takes a particular kind of person to brutally force what they consider to be the truth down someones throat without any regard whatsoever for that person. Oh, and it is brutality. Just because the destruction it causes isn't easily visible doesn't mean it's not there. It really makes me wonder about the intention behind it all..

In other words, you dislike science because it tells you things that you can't deal with.  You would prefer pleasing fantasy over displeasing reality.

Okay... I'm old.  So, no [edited].

 

First thing's first...  There IS no such thing as 'the friend zone'.  Quite simply, either she sees you as a romantic interest, or she doesn't.  This is a very simple dynamic that guys/dudes/bros make a heck of a lot more complicated than it has to be.  You are either her friend, or you are not.  If you are her friend, then be her friend and keep your twig-n-berries tucked away for use at a later time with someone else.  You CAN be friends with the opposite sex without wanting to mount anything without a Y chromosome.

 

Second, If she likes you in a romantic way, she will let you know.  Do not let your hormones rob you of a lifelong friendship because 'things got weird', m'kay?  I have friends, who are lovely women; very attractive and all that, that I have known for over 30 years...  I've been invited to their weddings, they to mine, and when divorces happen, we console each other and hope that the next person is better...  But we just don't have that romantic chemistry, dig?

 

Their children and my daughter are friends, we root for the same football teams, drink similar beers; we just don't do anything romantic/sexual.  Such things can happen.  And my current partner totally gets along with these ladies too (when one reaches their 40s-50s, I don't reckon 'girlfriend' is a term one would care to use.  Partner seems better and saying 'lover' [sounds very romance novel-ly] seems both too personal and just... odd), so, yay for large circles of friends.

 

Now, I will mention that, as someone a few pages back posited, if she is using you to make her current boyfriend jealous, then run, do not walk, but run away from such juvenile behavior...  You don't want any part of that, platonic or romantic...

 

Decide and move on,

 

Beorn

Proceed with caution. Don't expect anything though.

 

Seems like a honey trap from a girl who can't make up her mind.

I've accidentally re-opened this most annoying of threads, or was it accidental, I'm unsure.
