It's with profound delight that we (that's me and the Holy spirit) can announce the death of relativity. It was never right, and Einstein knew it, but he buried it in math so that only a few elite academics figured it out.
Atheist science troll (AST), scientifically illiterate science worshiper (SISW) and SciPop devotee are three kinds of interaction that you can expect if you discuss science and the Bible on social media.
Supposedly science is a state of knowing, as opposed to ignorance. Something went wrong. It appears that science IS the new ignorance.
Most religions have a creed, catechisms or a statement of faith. Popular Science (SciPop) is no different. Most of SciPop is theoretical and, since theory is the scientific word for faith, believing in a theory is a leap of faith.
Faith and sight are opposites, like light and darkness, good and evil. When you have one you don't need the other, and vice versa. We also use them as concepts in a unified theory of everything.
We (that's me and the Holy Spirit) asked Twitter: Why is the interior of the Earth hot? It revealed a lot about people who occupy the supposed intellectual high ground.
Scientifically illiterate science worshipers (SISWs) frequently tout the importance of empirical evidence. They squawk the phrase "empirical evidence" like parrots squawking "pieces of eight, pieces of eight".Scientifically illiterate science worshipers (SISWs) frequently tout the importance of empirical evidence.

Technically speaking, in order to be scientific, a hypothesis must be predictive, testable and falsifiable. The truth isn't falsifiable. If it was, it couldn't be the truth.
If science can't detect it then it doesn't exist. That's rhetoric which crops up on social media quite frequently. The soul is undetectable by popular science (SciPop) which is why scientists dismiss the possibility that it exists.
The gravitational wave detector at LIGO has been online for a while but the first ever recorded detection of a gravitational wave was in September 2015. According to AST logic, they didn't exist before that.
