Except when you wish to make assertions about the past, when you post stuff like this:
Faith writes:
The worldwide billions of fossils are terrific evidence for a worldwide catastrophe that buried them all at one time; the strata could only have been formed in water, and their immensity and existence throughout the world suggest an immense and worldwide catastrophe. This is so obvious it takes dishonesty to deny it. Or stupidity.
When we point to terrestrial sediments with footprints in, and say that it's terrestrial, then all statements about the past are mere conjecture. When you wish to point to the same sediment and pretend that it's aqueous, this is so certain that it takes dishonesty to deny it. Sometimes, one standard is not enough.
My 18 year old son would have said "pwned !"
I think you might appreciate my "Well played, sir !" a little more :-)

Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Kidnap some German toddlers and infants and sneak them into the UK
Sadly, that wouldn't work - we have a law which requires all 11 year olds to undergo a procedure, which removes their ability to take penalties.
