[Scientific proof of God]

Hypothesis: Humans will continue to enter the world through painful childbirth, minus cloning which is not an original human being born but a clone of one that already existed or still exists.

Prediction: We will continue to see people born of painful child birth as the Bible contends.

Of course... sooo scientific.

Oh, right, like painful child birth can't be explained by anything *but* God (or anything more plausible than God).

This has, exactly, WHAT do to with anything even remotely connected with doing science?

...and where does cloning enter into it?

So... if the mother used something to eliminate the pain, they don't give birth to a real human?

Drunk Monkey, you stole my thought!

By the way, the bible saying one thing that's true doesn't mean that everything the bible says is true.

\"This has, exactly, WHAT do to with anything even remotely connected with doing science?\"

He used the word \"hypothesis\". Notice that, while he did create something that is a \"hypothesis\" in the loosest sense of the term, he scrupulously avoided explaning any facts or phenomena with his \"hypothesis\", eliminating any chance of it being a scientific hypothesis.

Hypothesis: Rain will continue to water crops, minus irrigation which is recycled rain water.

Prediction: We will continue to see rain water crops as the Bible contends.

I'm confused. Is his proof of God that we are born of painful childbirth, and if we continue to be born through painful childbirth, that proves God? Why not, the sun rose today, it will probably rise tomorrow? It rained this week, it will probably rain again? I'm an idiot today, I'll probably still be an idiot tomorrow?

...and a substantial number of these will grow up to be clueless fucktards like emh112203.

Wooo. Hypothesis is an awfully big word for such a tiny, little thought, emh.

Betrand Russell said this:
One occasion for theological intervention to prevent the mitigation of human suffering was the discovery of anesthetics. Simpson, in 1847, recommended their use in childbirth, and was immediately reminded by the clergy that God said to Eve: 'In sorrow shalt thou bring forth children' (Gen. id. 16). And how could she sorrow if she was under the influence of chloroform? Simpson succeeded in proving that there was no harm in giving anesthetics to men, because God put Adam into a deep sleep when He extracted his rib. But male ecclesiastics remained unconvinced as regards the sufferings of women, at any rate in childbirth.

\"Hypothesis: Humans will continue to enter the world through painful childbirth\"

\"Prediction: We will continue to see people born of painful child birth\"

Assuming that one is a valid hypothesis, and that's a lot, you have made the same prediction as your hypothesis. Scientific method works proposing an hypothesis, then stating a necessary prediction, different from the hypothesis. Then you observe and experiment and if the prediction comes true, then the hypothesis must be true. Having a prediction that is the same as the hypothesis is rather useless, nor scientific at all.

What's the alternative? Pin-heads or giant vaginas?

Frankly, call me a male chauvenist pig, but I'm kinda fond of the way things are. Sorry ladies.

So, anaesthetics disprove God?

TLC,
Well, since that would be alternative hypothesis, anaesthetics used in childbirth do disprove god. No wonder fundies can't get their \"science\" published in peer review journals.

dude, you're a couple of decades behind the times.

My refutation of your prediction: epidural!

what about c sections?

Hypothesis: Humans will continue to breath air.
Prediction: Humans will be born with lungs to breath said air.

If this is the best proof for god that you have, you really ought to look into another like of work. I wouldn't suggest being a salesman, though, because you seem to have a lack for selling your BS.

You have no idea how science works do you straw man?

Well this comes to prove it, I'm not human. My mother's experiences with childbirth are untypically not unpleasant :)

So, the Bible states the obvious. Well, that's me convinced! I'm off to church to convert... no, just STFU.

no shit Sherlock!

"Let's take a constant and claim proof of God therein"

Like they did'nt already know childbirth was painful before the book was around

When we clone Humans, they are still implanted in the wombs of living people. Clones go through childbirth too. Shut the fuck up.
