Let me indicate why I come here. When a city has a garbage strike, garbage accumulates. When scientists stay away from the R&S section, error accumulates. And that error seeps like sewage into other areas, and into our public institutions. The amount of misinformation on R&S about the age of the earth, what evolution is and isn't, and the definitions of science, theory, scientific evidence, what a species is (kind doesn't exist in biology), and numerous other topics that some people here on R&S comment on out of ignorance, is appalling, and a number of us will be here to challenge them. You don't leave your knowledge, critical thinking, and intellectual honesty at the door of R&S, but that might happen if we aren't diligent here. People here are entitled to their beliefs, they are NOT entitled to their "facts", and if those aren't supported by scientific observations, evidence, and the actual definitions of scientific fields, and those people persist in their comments without changing their knowledge base, we will even mock them, and rightfully so.
