    True or False?

    In science, what you don't know can't hurt you?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    False. Try mixing two chemicals you don't know the identity of together and see what happens.

    True. Trusting a preacher to heal a fractured clavicle hurts.

    If you don't know if the paint you're sanding off has lead in it, you can still be poisoned.

    False. An ostrich hides it's head in the dirt, but the lion still gets him.

    Scientifically speaking, ostriches don't actually hide their heads in the sand. They do bury their eggs in the ground, so while tending to the eggs it appears that they are hiding their heads in the sand.

    Also, while lions do prey on ostriches, ostrich kicks are dangerous and can debilitate the lion.

    False.

    Likewise, what you think you know in religion can harm others. The false doctrine of the infallible inspiration of the scripture is what lead the Jews to kill Jesus.

    Further complicating the matter, Paul taught a different gospel than Jesus, driving Judaism and Christianity further apart.

    I'd call that false in or out of science... don't you think?

    I do.

    Did you know that people get hurt, maimed, and killed by what they don't know?

    And often by what they do know. For instance, save the children, all the other adult Christians that worshiped at Koresh's Waco compound, knew that they would meet their end in a conflagration just as predicted. But of course, this comports with your worldview, because they were martyr'd by the BATF.

    The point I'm making with this thread though deals with what isn't known.

    All the time.

    Is leading somehow to Daniel Boorstein's quote: "The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge"?

    Of course, the children who were martyr'd at Waco didn't know what the consequences were of worshiping Jesus.

    BTW, do you think there's a special place in heaven for the martyr'd Waco children? (If your god is half as good as you claim, there better be special treatment for them!)

    I thought you just said this thread is about what isn't known.

    Did the martyr'd Waco children die under supernatural circumstances? If not, then their deaths followed the laws of physics and chemistry, and the fact they had no idea worshiping Jesus can lead to death.

    ... and everywhere else. The world of science, in this case, is no different from any other world.
