DNA do you believe in it?

    DNA is considered as an absolute. It’s used in criminal cases, parental cases, and in family research. Do you consider this accurate and solid science?

    do you believe in a round earth? do you believe in gravity? do you believe in magic sky daddies? do you believe in vaccines that make you magnetic?

    DNA is as real as fingerprints and is used much in the same way. It is a unique characteristic we each have. What is not to believe?

    Oh, I agree. I don’t wear a tin foil hat or believe the world is flat. The reason I asked this question is because I have had to attend mandatory training for the past several days. For some reason the rest of this training has been canceled... of course I’m not complaining. Some of the training sessions say (we, collectively) must accept new “science” and new “normalcies”. Some of this training material is absolutely refuted by science and DNA but... I’m sure my understanding of DNA is antiquated. I keep reading/hearing about all the science deniers, I was just interested to see if someone here that would like to deny DNA.

    Although there seems to be a lot of poorly educated people thinking that science is some kind of magic, their belief or disbelief in science is irrelevant because science isn't a belief system. Science is a method or a process for learning about nature. Belief systems rely more on faith without questioning the tennents of those beliefs. The only thing science and any belief system has in common is that they both seek to answer some unknown question. It is more like evidence based inquiry verses faith based dogma. Why people pit these two approaches against each other is beyond me. They couldn't be more different.

    Yes. I have gone as far as to make my DNA sequence accessible to police databases in the case I or a family member commits a crime. I have no problem doing such.

    The Earth is flat,
    Gravity is a myth,
    Getting vaccinated will have me avoiding all manner of shrapnel . . .

    . . . and FD is always right.

    When I was in school, I made my DNA sequence accessible to any girl who wanted it. :)
