  1. Using the same method as the Chinese scientists that extended the life of mice(https://www.scienceforums.com/topic/37733-new-gene-therapy-reverses-aging-in-mice/) but slightly different, This being a Retroviral Vector that targets kat7 in liver cells using cas9 with a guide RNA to silence the gene as the inserts to the vector. This should in humans extending life span by 25% if it works anything like the mice that were gene edited. The Liver Targetting Retroviral Vector in this construct can be purchased from West Nanorobotics(https://www.wnanorobotics.com/shop) howeve

  2. 1. With motion of any sort, there is friction. 2. If by 'reactionless', you mean that there is no NUCLEAR reaction, then I'll give you that. But a true reactionless drive would have no 2 parts which would 'react' to each other. Thus, no moving parts, no transference of energetic particles, no magnetism, no graviton technology, and a host of other examples. 3. There is no such thing as perpetual motion. That's like saying you can see past infinity. No, you Can't. 4. MY EYES ARE BLEEDING FROM READING YOUR WALLS OF TEXT WHICH HAVE ***ZERO*** ACADEMIC CITATIONS. NO PROOF!!! JUST STO

  3. That's nice dear. But let's forget about feeding animals and talk about other human beings, shall we? Now tell me what your wonderful loving prophet thinks about flying commercial jetliners, full of innocent people, into office buildings, also full of innocent people? What does your Koran say about that? While you are at it, please explain why infidels deserve to be beheaded and their deaths recorded on video? As far as I am concerned, most organized religions are a form of insanity, but yours is absolutely the worst and the world would be better off without it.

    Yes, the members of the academic clergy are very scared of it, not because it will destroy their cherished beliefs, but because they will lose their reputation and authority and then they will have to tear up their diplomas. My explanation of how the light produces the colors is so true that even a 12-years old kid can understand it. Remember this and remember it very well: "The truth is understandable, the untruth is not understandable. Consequence: if something is not understandable, suspect its truthfulness." All the theories of the contemporary physics, including the Einstein's c

    What are you people so scared of exactly? That someone may propose a theory that destroys your cherished beliefs? What if someone posts a theory that is hopelessly wrong? It can be shown as being wrong easily I presume. Sometimes, proposing a really stupid idea may lead to something great, prompt some new line of thought. If you only include theories that already conform to tour made up preconceived beliefs, then there is no way forward. Anything you don't personally like the sound of, you relegate to the "utter BS" category? This makes Science a club of bigots.

  6. I think the last symbol should have been / for division instead of the percentage sign. Then it could be expressed in words as: “The four elements of this cardinal set of basic arithmetic functions are addition, subtraction, multiplication and division” But I’m not sure why anyone would want to do this?

Your post is rather long, so I will just pick out this one sentence: "So I would say, you can't be a good scientist if you take things as absolutes" And I go further and say that you cannot be a scientist at all if you take things as absolutes, and I don't know any actual scientists who do this. I have worked with many scientists throughout my years with the NOAA and they all operate on the principle of following the preponderance of evidence, as I wrote in my earlier posts. I think the OP's question has been fully answered now by multiple people, multiple times but it seems to me he is w

  10. I am saying they require things that might work out mathematically but the reality of things like negative mass is unknown and there is little reason to think they exist. In science everything is subject to new information coming in, science is a self correcting process, it becomes ever more precise but will never, by design, reach a 100% conclusion. This "design" is what allows science to be self correcting and moves it closer and closer towards reality.

We're so inundated and constantly barraged by empty headlines about Covid, Racism, Trump BAD, and such nonsense, that a good amount of people actually believe it... They are unable to critically think, or choose not to, so as to avoid any social media repurcussions.. Its a complete disservice to anyone with a cognitive brain. I disagree with you stating that Trump has alienated "normal thinking people".

  16. See Olber's Paradox The assumption is for a universe that is infinitely old, with an infinitely large number of stars distributed homogenously in an infinite space. In that case, the entire sky would be as bright as the surface of a star. The resolution is the observed fact that the universe is finitely old and is expanding. This, coupled with the finite speed of light means that only a finite number of stars can be observed from Earth. Also, redshift of light, caused by the expansion, shifts observable light into the microwave range, as we see in the cosmic microwave background which do

    Weird how the % fatality rate went down from 3.5% to 2.75% to now 1% in only 7 months WITHOUT ANY TREATMENT CHANGES. Almost like it's actual overall fatality is around 0.006 or less and was/is artificially spiked by high visibility sample sizes being burned out early on... But heay, that's just statistics.

    Mask Rules Expand

    Facemasks in medicine are mainly to prevent flesh-eating bacteria from getting into a patient's open wounds though the breathing of the doctor/nurse/observer. if your surgeon "clears their throat" you should probably reschedule, or double-down on antiseptics and antibiotics. It's the same with hand washing: BACTERIA not VIRUS are the main concern and efficacy. Viral particles are NOT going to be blocked by either a surgical mask OR the cheap cloth ones people "feel good" about wearing. Just like a lot of other viruses in it's larger family, CoViD19 uses a pathway in mucoid tissues to infect

    Even the experts say that masks may be helpful in only a few situations. OK, but look at this pair of interesting facts in juxtaposition: One of the symptoms of covid is shortness of breath or difficulty breathing According to experts, face masks shouldn’t be used by people who have trouble breathingThe takeaway is, although face masks may do some good in some cases, they can do some harm in other cases. Therefore, mandatory use by all is dangerous and an overreach of authority. A couple of other interesting facts: Almost all people who need to be hospitalized “for covid-19” have other exi

  25. Don't you find it kinda ironic that "socialist" countries are the ones that tend to force a person to do things though(EG USSR)? It's that nasty truth that "it wasn't real communism" and "it wasn't real socialism" is often used to pass-off guilt from the mechanisms in play that result in forced labor. Sure, Monarchy is often horrible too(the middle east and european history as example) but at least you can blame that on a very small group and not a dispersed network of soulless "policy" and "just following orders." Of course, the USA and Canada are kinda guilty of it too. The prison systems

  27. Dave, and Mod, and Alex, and even that freak FreeThinker are missed. Haven't seen hide nor hair of most of the old crew in a long time. On your question: One intuitive way to grasp it is that Gravity can pack more "space per area." Light still travels at C, but there is more distance-per-area for it to travel when there's more stress on space itself so it takes more time for it to get past that area. That's drastically over-simplified, but it's an intuitive way to grasp at the invisible forces at play.

  29. I don’t see any real difference between the Russians providing the Taliban with weapons (which we know they are doing) or offering a bounty to kill US and coalition troops. There is no doubt that our CIA did exactly the same things when it was the Russians’ turn in Afghanistan. It is just standard operating procedure; anyone who thinks otherwise is naïve. Where neither side follows any rules of engagement, the objective is to out-guerrilla the guerrillas any way you can. One of the Taliban’s most effective tactics is to use suicide bombers. I doubt if those guys lived to collect any bounties

    Conspiracy Theories

    Be careful labelling all conspiracy theories as nonsense, always try to avoid precondition responses like that. Conspiracy theory (whether naturally or by design, or a bit of both) has become a highly weaponised term that produces a trained response. No doubt some conspiracy theories are somewhat accurate while others are utter nonsense. Look at it this way, do you trust the people in power or those with wealth and/or influence? Almost everybody would answer no to this question and yet reject every example of possible instances of those same people lying and covering it up, that's an irration

The universe is composed of interacting energy fields, some at rest and some in motion. It is , in and of itself, one gigantic hologram of unbelievable complexity.

    Wow not very bright are you. The "big bang" by definition may not be a suitable term for your theory. But maybe it can be used if you're suggesting the multiverse theory. Please elaborate further Do you see a question in your statement? Any punctuation that signifies a question? Too anybody reading this is how you spot someone of fake intelligence. Or 'big bangs' in different times and dimensions? So far at least it's my opinion that you're stuck with having to go with a multiverse. You do realize that "Time." is a form of Dimension enclosing either ‘mass M’ or ‘length L’ or ‘time T’

Same with health care. Canadians can have what you call 'free' health care that is of higher quality than US health care, and still pay roughly the same in taxes. In America the tax revenue to government isn't sufficient to provide the necessities I've mentioned because the wealthy aren't paying their fair share.
