Actually, "science" is a deductive tool. Completely separate from math.
"Science" does not refer specifically to chemistry or physics or politics - it refers to a method (the Scientific Method) of gaining knowledge by proving/disproving hypotheses in a (theoretically) logically infallible situation.
Like math, it CAN exist as an individual entity; however, both math and science are not very useful without one another.

Separate cannot be equal.
Using a separate name would cause fundamental differentiation between the two (the connotations wouldn't be the same).
One party would get ripped off - and it wouldn't be the majority.
Equal rights requires equal treatment and equal opportunity.

Commenters here fail hard. You don't believe something because you KNOW it's right, but because you THINK it's right. Belief implies fallibility by definition. If you believed what you know, that's redundant; knowledge comes from facts and evidence and is concrete. Beliefs can be wrong, and I applaud OP for admitting that, Christian or not.

Completely correct. Beliefs are held by the believer without proof. If the belief is proven, then it is no longer believed, it is known (thereby becoming knowledge).
Why would you die for the sake of something which is (by its very definition) unproven and possibly incorrect?

What's the point of having beliefs if you don't believe in them? You can have beliefs about almost anything also, not just religion. This post pisses me off a bit because a lot of good has happened in this world by people willing to fight, and willing to die for their belief in it.

"Which came first, the chicken or the egg?"
The question didn't specify a CHICKEN egg.
Dinosaur eggs came before chickens; therefore, when the question is worded this way, the answer is that the egg came first.

If one were to ask "Which came first, the chicken or the chicken egg?" then the answer would be dependent upon how one is supposed to define an egg. Is it a chicken egg only if it was LAID by a chicken (if so, then a chicken had to lay the first chicken egg; therefore, the chicken had to come before the chicken egg) - or is it a chicken egg only if it CONTAINS a chicken (if that is the case, then the egg came first, and then the first chicken hatched out of it).

They would eat small amounts of the meat raw and drink some of the blood, believing it would give them the nimbleness or cunning of the monkey. The uncooked meat contained the pathogen.
Even just one infected human could have stared an epidemic (assuming non-monogamy or blood rituals).

It should. The only truly hairless places on a normal human are the soles of the feet and the palms of the hands.

what you say kind of makes sense, but the real question isn't whether its murder if the baby is alive. the real question that people can't agree on is what defines a baby or fetus as "alive". the catholic church says that life begins at conception, i only know that because i went to catholic school. obviously the government defines life in a different way, because abortion is not considered murder.

Technically, the cell is a base unit of life. Anything made of cells which has yet to die is alive.

It isn't people "these days". The coat hanger thing has been around for a long time.

Actually, one never actually sees the world around him (the distal stimulus): one only sees the image projected onto his retina by reflected light rays (the proximal stimulus).

That statement was offensively heteronormative.
In a normal homosexual relationship, there is no "seme+uke". There is no dominant and submissive; no man and woman.
There are just two men. Or two women.

- and that's it.

That's sorta the definition.
