My new YouTube video about atheism

RE: My new YouTube video about atheism
It would be impossible to determine what finding you're referring to, but I fully expect the explanation to be unimpressive and wholly irrelevant to your next doomed objection.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

As expected. Seems like the process worked just fine, John. They nailed down the origin of an observed effect recorded by their regimented experimentation.

If the process worked regardless of the scientist, then the observations should not have varied. This shows that a crank doing science will produce crank results.

There were no cranks or crank results in your example. They were detecting a very real effect.

The obvious delay they noticed. Nothing crank about it, loonie.

The delay for which they fired Kinnebrook, correct?

Almost as if the scientist was the one responsible for the results rather than the process. Hmm. Strange.

And in modern day we'd use a photometer and accurate clocks.  No humans needed.

Science tries to get the human factor out of every measurement, if possible.  It searches for both systematic and random error sources.  It uses reproducibility by disparate groups and on different equipment to reduce sources of error and fraud.

Science is an art.  Science modifies itself when problems in the scientific method itself are found.  The purpose is to improve the likelihood that a theory could be correct by dismissing alternatives, and by testing new predictions of the theory. 

Science never finds truth.  Science is pragmatism only.  People, in our apparent need for Truth sometimes promote theories to "laws" or theories "truth", but that is part of our internal story-telling.  A good scientist knows that all theories are useful in their domain of relevance, but are always provisional.

As for which theory is chosen if both equally "explain" the results, that is simple in principle, though a bit of an art.  Scientists sometimes refer to "beauty" as an intellectually satisfying aspect of a theory.  Analytically, the most beautiful theory explains the most with the fewest arbitrary constructs.  A theory should be "as simple as possible, but no simpler" is the way Einstein put it.

BTW, gods are the most arbitrary construct of them all.

Exactly; we seek to remove the person from the process as much as possible, because the person affects the process. Otherwise, we could simply leave the person in the process and the outcome wouldn't change.
