RE: Is science the only way to knowledge?
Does science show me how to write a grammatically correct sentence? I'm going with "no" but I could be wrong.

Is showing you the door the only way to convince you to leave?

Hands-on experience works too.

Of course not. For instance, the lessons I learn from poetry and music (which have to do with emotion and beauty and how I understand myself) are not scientific lessons, yet those things and the ways I learn from them are very important to me.

So, if we choose to not believe lies told by corrupt church leaders, and pretend that we know who God is, we have an "affliction?"

I will take the affliction, then. lol

Pretty insulting stuff.

Regarding the topic, science only encompasses one aspect of knowledge. But, like has been mentioned, one can gain knowledge through the arts, music, reading classic fictional novels, etc.
If we keep our minds open, knowledge will find us.

Right. Science is the best way to acquire empirical knowledge.

Let's see:

Science based knowledge: Cato must thrust his dick in Vinny's ass in order for Vinny to determine whether or not the experience is enjoyable.

Non-science based knowledge: Vinny can imagine the interaction and decide without actual experiment.

Do you have any other stupid fucking questions you need an answer to?
