Quote from: xSilverPhinx on January 27, 2019, 08:55:48 PMScience is not about dogma, which is what you seem to want to instill in the 'debate'.

Your view is too simplistic, and your 'solutions' are as well.

You are all inclined to adhere to what you have known to be true and are not inclined to question it, even though, you recognize that there is dispute and discrepancies in the definitions; and that the procedure for editing dictionaries is not so scientific as what some people are beginning to expect of dictionary definitions, because of the increased access to information and search for reliable references.
