Scientific Theories Must Make Way for New Evidence

A new page! Scientific theories (especially new ones) undergo lengthy periods of intense criticism, and are often refined many times before they settle in a form that is well-supported by evidence. Rarely, a new theory will completely displace an old one, perhaps instigating a cascade of theory replacements, in what is called a "scientific revolution" or "paradigm shift".

The Banning of Face Coverings such as the Niqab and Burqa in Europe

New page. France and Belgium in 2011 both moved to ban the covering of the face in public (in general), in both cases based on improving public safety. France also argued that full coverings made it impossible for immigrant communities to integrate into wider society. In Belgium it was argued that veiling represents the oppression of women. Bulgaria (2016) passed a similar law, in Austria at the start of 2017 is on the verge of following suit, and debates continue elsewhere in Europe such as Germany and The Netherlands.

How Could Jesus Have Survived the Crucifixion?

A new page. Jesus might have survived his execution because of his short stay on the cross, because he was rescued by Joseph of Arimathea, or he was substituted with Judas the Twin, Thomas or Simon of Cyrene. There is a surprising amount of support for such ideas, and some of the very earliest communities of Christians believed them.
