  1. First off let me say I mean no disrespect. And if I seem brutally honest it's because it's my nature and belief in being forthright. There are a lot of things said in science documentaries and scientifically mined people that upset me. And they always speak with absolute certainty. Like this thing is perfectly well known and proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, like gravity. I wanted to ask you weather or not they were really true but then I thought it would be easier to ask you about science and our certainty of it in general. I've heard that scientists are supposed to be open minded

  3. In his 1905 dissertation for Columbia Teachers College, Elwood Cubberly—the future Dean of Education at Stanford—wrote that schools should be factories “in which raw products, children, are to be shaped and formed into finished products…manufactured like nails, and the specifications for manufacturing will come from government and industry.” The next year, the Rockefeller Education Board—which funded the creation of numerous public schools—issued a statement which read in part:

    What if Trump Loses?

    If Trump loses then expect the sort of reaction that's predicted of a psychopath. That is very much an unknown due to the fact that a psychopath is incapable of accepting defeat. And so the big question is on whether Trump will seek revenge to somehow turn his loss into a win. There are many possibilities to consider but the one we could be considering now is the possibility of Trump revealing state secrets to any of America's enemies, real or imagined? This begs the question of how the FBI/CIA and other government law enforcement agencies are contemplating how they will need to constantl

  5. Not very in some cases. Dark matter and dark energy for example are artifacts of a model that didn't match reality so they invented them rather than discarding the model, that's really the only 'evidence' that they are actually a real thing. Also the big bang is bollocks in my opinion. When it was found that redshift is proportional to distance that should have been taken as evidence that the redshift must be occurring during the light's journey rather than being caused by motion of the source away from us. When redshift was shown to be higher than what you'd get if distant gala

  6. Okay, like that isn't bacteria however that is a change of state of cheese from heat, but however your sponge may have much bacteria on it. See the Food Particles the bacteria feed on in the sponge.

  7. Good, and I must say I appreciate that attitude. That isn’t my experience, and I work directly with many scientists, often for months at a time, usually at sea. In my experience, all good scientists are skeptics and only feel confident about their understanding when there is a preponderance of evidence supporting their position. There may very well be still unresolved issues and loose ends; in fact, there are usually many, but as long as there is a preponderance of carefully examined and empirically tested evidence, scientists can feel confident they are at least on the right tr

  8. Wtf are you talking about? Tried to get what past you? You were claiming it was ridiculous for Mars to have a magnetotail despite the fact the Earth has one! It doesn't mean Mars does, I'm not sure it has a strong enough magnetic field but that wasn't your objection, you were convinced that it couldn't have any type of tail. 7 on the thicko metre. You repeatedly tried to claim that reports of alien sighting being similar to the aliens depicted in Close Encounters is evidence that the reports are bollocks so of course I'm going to point out that the creators of that film could ea

  9. I'm talking about Gravity, you know the stuff that makes you fall down and that sticks you to the ground, the stuff that DOES NOT COMPRESS when you compress matter. But please, prove me wrong, (instead of just insulting), go ahead and show me the equations and established science that says that gravity compresses with mass. One thing I have notice is you provide NO evidence, no equation, you just get grumpy, sorry if you can't quite grasp the concepts. But I expect more from you guys. Why does big G or little g make any difference, do you have ANY evidence that you can compress the

  10. Math alone does not prove anything at all, 'doing the math' is just a small part of the total scientific method, and just because some mathematical model looks right that does not mean it is an accurate description of reality. Also, we really have no idea what is going on at or in a black hole, all we know for sure about them is that they do not emit visible light (they are black), and they have a lot of mass (by observing how things move near them). The same concept applies for 'information', what experiments or observations show that 'information' as an independent 'thing' is real

  11. The existing thread title is in appropriate for a serious discussion and so a new thread for those who would prefer to be serious about the topic. If we can't rely on these two for valuable positions on aliens and UFO's, then who can we rely upon. Their opinions on aliens being quite different from the human form is stronger than their beliefs on there being similarities. But neither of them are willing to put down the possibility of the aliens showing a likeness to humans. Dawkins leans at least somewhat to the possibility of likeness to the human form but not as strongly

    Reason To Worry?

    I have a 34 year old female friend who has always been thin as long as I've known her (5'5" 105lbs.) A year ago or so, she changed diet drastically & a couple months ago, she also started going to the gym 3 days/week and talks a lot about fitness, diet, health, etc... She doesn't seem to have an ounce of fat on her body. Should I be worried?

  14. I KNOW how to find where vertical and horizontal diagonals of a sphere touch. It has over a dozen steps but I know the proof for it. In mathematics a proof is a geometric demonstration or an equation that yields a solution to a logical problem. I know how to produce gravitational waves after that, because I know how much larger or smaller the sphere will appear to be when placed atop the surface of the first sphere. So I could tell you something using mathematics that science may not know about yet. Like black holes bending the fabric up as opposed to down within the event horizon becaus
