Fuck yeah, man. I've given up whole weekends of my life for this company which is what I call it when I finish something friday lunchtime but don't roll it out til monday morning
There's a sucker born every minute... and you are right on time.

I'm lucky in that the default PD screen looks remarkably like one of the screens we use at work.
Plus, I politic'd my way into getting a corner cube so no one can see my screen.
High School rules apply: So long as I'm showing results, it doesn't matter what I do with my time.
I'd guess it to be partly an ego thing. It's difficult to admit you are totally wrong about something, it's much more palatable to think that you were mostly right, just slightly off on a few things.
Again, I may be being somewhat harsh here but I've associated organised religion with stunted science so that idea clearly needs revising in some regards.
There is research on this, and this is not correct.
That's about par for the course.
I am constantly amazed at the sheer quantity of incorrect information I have stored.
Incorrect information abounds. I'm constantly finding things I have always thought were true that aren't, too. For that matter, as research progresses it's constantly disproving earlier ideas that were once thought to be true; for example, the idea that new neurons are never made after birth.
OKAY, EVERYONE STOP UNTIL I FUCKING CATCH UP.
The only possible way to catch up is to pick just ONE THING.
What happened was science started disproving large chunks of biblical myth?
Nope. The Church has always been fairly flexible on that point. Catholics and Lutherans aren't literalists, like Fundies are. And, there is little "Biblical myth" that can't work around scientific knowledge.
The more we learn, the less water primitive superstitious ignorance holds. Newton and Einstein and whatnot were fine because they stuck to belief in a non-defined abstraction of god, a creator. This is not mutually exclusive with science since there is no data before the big bang, it may very well have been some giant invisible dude just suddenly popping into existence and deciding he was bored.
Belief in religious texts, however, is almost completely incompatible with scientific method, since the vast majority of most of them is demonstrably gobshite. Rabbits being merely the tip of the iceberg.
You might consider looking into the early history of scientific inquiry.
I'm not even going to try and explain this to a Texan.
