Spin - not just a leap of faith, but tangible evidence. How can you deny gravity exists?
K I do not deny gravity exists. But even science does not know what it is. Science adopts the model which closely supports its other theories. The scientist is involved in just as much as an unjustified "leap of faith", a belief in an unproven proposition, in an idea, as the theist is.
Just as theists do not question what they read in the bible, so empiricists do not question what they read in scientific journals (or, in most cases on these threads, on Wikipedia). Genuine science, in todays community, questions the scientific attitude ie: a dogmatic attitude similar to that it condemns in theism.
Why do the people who vote that my post does not contribute to the discussion, even though it directly answers the question, never reply with an argument? Thier ignorance is thier sheild, I guess.

but I thought it best if we stick with the original title of this forum).
