    The turbojet engine is a fascinating journey of observation, testing and application of known principals to combine previously used and observed phenomena into a configuration far more powerful than previous incarnations. It depended heavily on the construction of hypotheses that were testable and repeatable. It depends utterly on being repeatable by anyone. An interesting side note is that a large part of today's jet engines are disaster mitigation systems such that aniticipated failure modes are not fatal; such as redundancy and shrapnel containment.

    In an interesting contrast to godditit stories, the jet engine industry thinks in advance, "what could possibly go wrong?" and designs safeguards against damage from it.
    I completely agree with you. Science is great. The goddidit explanation is a fallacy.

    But my question was regarding bigfields game of equivocation.
