Accurate: Performance predictions consistently fall within a narrow range of expected values and don’t vary greatly.
As a licensed pilot and certified flight instructor, I’ve bet my life, and the life of my students and passengers that I know exactly how a given plane will perform under given circumstances: how much runway it will take to take off, fly a specified distance and land at another airport. What inputs it takes to recover from a stall (that’s not a reference to the engine by the way) and spins. Anyone who has flown in a plane is betting the science of flight is a “hard science” with consistent predictable results.
Some simply appeal to arguments of tradition and familiarity with the system.
Still many other Christians object to the “scientific” origin of this designation.
The excavations were carried out by archaeologist Yosef Garfinkel of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
At first, scientists could not tell if the writing was Hebrew or some other local language. He identified words particular to the Hebrew language and content specific to Hebrew culture to prove that the writing was, in fact, Hebrew.
It’s science and many believe “science” to be synonymous with “always true” and therefore don’t question the data given, even when it contradicts the Bible – which also claims to be always true in information that it affirms.
But is radiometric dating really the objective hard science many believe it to be?
By “objective, hard science” I mean science that is measurable, repeatable, predictable, consistent and accurate.
For instance I would could consider the physics of flight a “hard science.” Here’s how those terms apply to the performance of an aircraft: Measurable: Flight parameters such as take off and landing distance, fuel burn, etc. Repeatable: Given the same initial conditions, those parameters should be the same regardless of who performs the operations.
C., because Hebrew writing was thought to stretch back no further.
But the newly deciphered Hebrew text is about four centuries older, scientists announced this month.
