    In any field of scientific endeavor, the bast results are obrained immediately — and are not reproducible.

    That’s actually the opposite of how the Scientific method works. The ability to reproduce the result is essential.

    We had a lab where things always seemed to work as i described. One of our chemists formulated this “law”, which was displayed prominently on our walls.

    The SCIENTIFIC results are reproducible. The BEST (most interesting/exciting/promising) results are not reproducible. Works the same way in the kitchen.

    This is one of the most honest cartoons out there – a real pleasure.

    The catch is that one assumes “all other things are equal.” We were a chemical plant doing sophisticated reactions in 2,000 -6,000 gallon batch reactors. The hardest things we had to duplicate in lab glassware were agitation patterns and digitally programmed temperature profiles. Plus, you’d be amazed at how much even “on spec” raw materials can vary.

    Many a scientific discovery has been made without me being there… ; ))

    The only thing I’ve got to say is that pizza box may leak oil through the bottom and onto their couch or futon.

    How about a cure for misspelling – or sloppy typing?

    Then explain the scientific communities relentless clinging to the THEORY of evolution. It cannot be reproduced in the laboratory. No one was there when it happened. There is only circumstantial evidence to support it. Heck, Charlie Darwin himself said it was just one theory on the origin of man. And yet, the atheistic left clings to it with the dogged passion of any religious zealot on the right clinging to the theory of creationism. As I have stated, it is all a matter of faith. Faith in fallen man, or faith in an Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient God. Choose ye this day whom ye will serve…….as for me and my house, WE will serve the Lord.
