Answer to Question #64936 in Other Biology for Roger Jenkins
The scientific method has limitations. It can only answer objective questions based on quantitative facts from observable, measurable, and repeatable experiments. It cannot answer subjective questions based on qualitative beliefs or opinions such as the presence of deities and ghosts or who makes the best doughnut. Could the scientific method theoretically be used to answer the question, "Does throwing a virgin into a volcano prevent it from erupting?" Support your answer.
Scientific method can theoretically be used for answering this question. This is because the exact conditions for volcano eruption can be defined based on the scientific knowledge and statistics. Since “throwing a virgin into a volcano” will unlikely to be the playing factor in this, such scientific investigations will be able to justify its negligible role.
