Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

It always bugs me when people says "just" or "only" a theory. Because theory is king in science.

What they mean to say is that evolution is "just a hypothesis" which is technically true because it is impossible to test and prove just like every other hypothesis as to the origin of life.

But even the ones that understand that little tidbit have difficulty understanding the importance of differentiating between micro and macro evolution when claiming to have knowledge of the subject.

It's not "technically true". Just the opposite, it is objectively false and a misuse of terminology that consistently pulls the wool over the eyes of an ill-educated public.

Luckily for everyone, science always wins. Anything that loses can't be called science.

Not possible.
That would require a moderator to actually do their duty.

Like the oil companies would actually let someone encourage alternative transportation if they were president.

I think it's just people being too scared/unfamiliar to visit other forums on bf, even if it's the relevant forum for their post. Why argue with strangers when you can argue with strangers you've already argued with before?

So their duty isn't stickying whatever hobby they have to the top of the board?
