Well, come to think of it, it's certainly evidence-based. The shaman has to go into the other dimensions and come back with the goods. It's no good just believing in it. He has to do it. Also, to some extent, shamanism is testable, as Mircae Eliade proved by bringing together anthropologists' accou...

If you build a boat just to discover whatever is beyond the horizon, then meet a different tribe the differences in culture are likely to produce different clothes, ornaments etc. A small amount of trade may occur in that joyriding trip.

From Wiki: The concept of a scientific law is closely related to the concept of a scientific theory. A scientific law attempts to describe...

I know you'll like that Min. I have one son that is unhappy because the Nashville Predators are eliminated, but even if they were any good I wouldn't care.

i'm surprised the Bushies haven't tired to steal that play from FDR's book. i'm glad FDR was unsuccessful, otherwise the Supreme Court would now have more Justices than Congress has members.
