Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

Scientific method: if I have the theory, I can't be startled - all I need is to test...

    ...is how startled I would have been?
    If the theory helps me discern how startled I am, from how startled I would have been: I can commit to being righteous, about how effective the startling I am is to others, who do not have the same angle, on the same truth (as they would have, if they had that theory).

    Put simply, a good Evolutionist, is not shocking about what happened in the past, for the sake of what is startling about the future I am going to. The more it becomes about the startling that I am going to, the less shocking that future becomes - the more dependably I can adapt, the more consistently I can forevisage and the more final, enacting that startling can perfect. Thus there is a mystery, to my Evolution - which is not explained by the pressures of my past.

    The only thing that can undo me, is testing the Evolution, irrespective of the mystery surrounding it. If i desire to shock people, with the truth, it is not the truth; if I desire to take pleasure in shocking myself, it is not the truth; if it is that both the shocking and the past agree, it is not the truth: they cannot agree. This is something that practice with the test, will prove. Thus Evolution, shocks less - this is the truth.

    The point being that the spirit of the adapation, can never outstrip the startling effect the adaptation had on the me, the individual, before the test demonstrates that there is a difference between the "startling" and the mystery, granted by the Evolution. In other words, its not true, until the intial vulnerability confirms the adaptation, nested in the confidence I have about remaining quiet about what else the Evolution might be. The Evolution ages, it doesn't grow.

    I will try to be clearer, about what I failed to foreknow about Evolution, in future posts - but I am not going to start confessing sins to you, when that was God's place... to receive from me, the praise that vigor in me, because the Spirit (of Mankind) speaks in me, causes Him to deserve.

    Nope. Didn't understand a thing.
    You REALLY need to work on your knowledge.

    I think what is lacking, is that there is no clear way to impart "Evolution" - basically because whenever you do, you include information that twists the meaning, along an unpredictable path.

    If you can impart it, you can develop your conditioning in it.

    I'm not saying there aren't dangers in imparting or conditioning the wrong way, but that it is more than worth it to practice (impartation, if not conditioning).

    Even philosophy develops schools of thought, and that takes no foundation but a love of wisdom (what is it that Evolution is a love of ?).

    Evolution isn't a philosophy or something to impart or something to be a love of. It is simply a description of biological change in a species of organisms.

    Honestly, I wouldn't bother. Clearer word salad is still word salad.

    Don't discourage it too much. It's how I get my five-a-day.
