2. While I've never read Scientific American, I'll bet it is pretty scientific. And American. Just like those prehistoric cave drawings in the south of France.
3. People cited violation of the First Amendment when a New Jersey schoolteacher asserted that evolution and the Big Bang are not scientific and that Noah's ark carried dinosaurs. This case is not about the need to separate church and state; it's about the need to separate ignorant, scientifically illiterate people from the ranks of teachers.
4. Science, my boy, is made up of mistakes, but they are mistakes which it is useful to make, because they lead little by little to the truth.
5. The plural of anecdote is not data.
6. The assumption of an absolute determinism is the essential foundation of every scientific enquiry.
7. There is no scientific answer for success. You can't define it. You've simply got to live it and do it.
8. In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.
9. A thinker sees his own actions as experiments and questions--as attempts to find out something. Success and failure are for him answers above all.
10. Claims that cannot be tested, assertions immune to disproof are veridically worthless, whatever value the may have in inspiring us or in exciting our sense of wonder.
11. It is now generally admitted, at any rate by philosophers, that the existence of a being having the attributes which define the god of any non-animistic religion cannot be demonstratively proved... [A]ll utterances about the nature of God are nonsensical.

15. I like the scientific spirit—the holding off, the being sure but not too sure, the willingness to surrender ideas when the evidence is against them: this is ultimately fine—it always keeps the way beyond open—always gives life, thought, affection, the whole man, a chance to try over again after a mistake—after a wrong guess.
16. This is just rap. I'm not trying to make people think I'm some sort of scientific wizard or inspirational poet.
17. I would remind you to notice where the claim of consensus is invoked. Consensus is invoked only in situations where the science is not solid enough. Nobody says the consensus of scientists agrees that E=mc2. Nobody says the consensus is that the sun is 93 million miles away. It would never occur to anyone to speak that way.
18. If Darwinists are opposed to mentioning scientific problems with their view, you would think they would be even more opposed to mentioning intelligent design. Yet Darwinists have been discussing ID in public school science classes for years... Biology textbooks have been mentioning intelligent design since the late 1990s—but only to misrepresent and disparage it.
19. In terms of doing things I take a fairly scientific approach to why things happen and how they happen. I don't know if there's a god or not...
