tjohnson Posted August 2, 2008 Share Posted August 2, 2008 You have to be pretty perverse to ignore the obvious, that I was using "laws of science" to mean "the way reality behaves" rather than "our formulation of our understanding of how reality behaves." So perverse, that you make the claim that the laws of nature vary, however wrong, simply trivial and empty.A"law" is by definition some sort of statement and so indeed represents a formulation by man. These models are not trivial or empty in any sense of the word and are man's highest achievements. Perversion is a term and concept describing those types of human behavior that are perceived to be a serious deviation from what is considered to be orthodox or normalI don't think you are using 'perverse' properly.
