  1. Hello people, just thought I would drop by. It's been a while!!! A search on the internet brought me to this page, so I posted here. :-) Regards CC
  2. Hey JMJ, :) Today the theory of evolution is about as much open to doubt as the theory that the earth goes round the sun. ~Richard Dawkins We humans are an extremely important manifestation of the replication bomb, because it is through us - through our brains, our symbolic culture and our technology - that the explosion may proceed to the next stage and reverberate through deep space. ~Richard Dawkins CC

  5. I've been posting absolutely nothing here at Hypography for quite some time. CC
  6. The results in this book, according to the author himself "do not overthrow the Einsteinian General Theory of Relativity". The only thing he claims has been altered is "the very basic interpretation and foundations of the Einsteinian theory." What the author claims is being established is that "the language of Riemannian geometry is not the language of reality." (He prefers Euclidean geometry, absolute space and absolute time). He concludes that all of the consequences of the Einsteinian theory that apply to an actual physical universe should be interpreted in terms of infinitesimal light cloc
  7. Newton description of universal gravitation and the three laws of motion was a scientific view of the physical universe. He showed that the motions of objects on Earth and of celestial bodies are governed by the same set of natural laws; removing the last doubts about heliocentrism and advancing the Scientific Revolution. His objective was to describe the natural world. The author of the book you mention in the OP has a quite different agenda: to justify "scientifically" the "Godhead attributes described within the Bible". His objective is to "increase our understanding of God's created visi
  8. In the OP you posted a description of a book by the self-proclaimed creationist (a 1996 Templeton Prize Nominee) Robert A. Herrmann. His General Intelligent Design Theory (not to be confused with Einstein's General relativity theory) is an attempt to "transform God's thoughts into physical reality". His interpretation "shows that it is rational to assume that all physical-system behavior as investigated by science-communities is designed or controlled by intelligent agency." This, so the author claims, "is the first general solution to the problem of intelligent design." (Source: the author's
  9. In in addition to the four known fundamental forces, a fifth force has been postulated. Theories of gravity such as Brans-Dicke theory have a fifth force—possibly with infinite range, which would manifest itself in an effect called the Nordtvedt effect. Lunar Laser Ranging Experiments and long baseline interferometry have been used to search for the effect, i.e., the existence of the fifth force is testable.(Ephraim Fischbach, Daniel Sudarsky, Aaron Szafer, Carrick Talmadge, and S. H. Aronson, "Reanalysis of the Eötvös experiment", Physical Review Letters 56 3, 1986) Another postulation of a
  10. I could be mistaken, but it seems as if the author mentioned above is a perfect candidate for the Templeton Prize. He bridges the gap between sense and nonsense. EDIT-> According to this source, the author mentioned above is a creationist. And according to this source, the author invented what he calls, General intelligent design (i.e., nonsense). Confirmed. His own website states: "the described Biblical attributes and behavior of God are scientifically rational in content. Further, the modeled creationary processes can be intuitively described as transforming God's thoughts int
  11. Thanks Pam, I must have missed your post. I await further testing, and until then side with Einstein's view that nothing can travel faster than c, not even neutrinos. CC
  12. Hey Maddog. Do you have a link that discusses the "faulty wiring (lose connection) and an issue with the clock circuitry"? Thanks CC
  13. Work! Ecstasy! Smash your brains! Chew, stuff yourself, gulp it down, mix it around! The bliss of giving birth! The crack of the brush, best of all as it stabs the canvas. - Max Pechstein
  14. From Moontanman's wiki link: Bold added. Clearly what you write is incomplete. Lankester was perhaps the first "biologist" to come up with the theory of devolution. But devolution was originally a creationist idea, first presented as an evolutionary mechanism in 1857 by a devout Catholic, not circa 1880-1910 (as you write). Whether the physician Bénédict More should be considered a biologist is irrelevant, so too is the possibility that Lankester may have been the first biologist to adopt the idea of devolution. Key, is that Morel (the devout Catholic) produced the hypothesis of devol
  15. Having something to rotate in is not a necessary condition of rotation. Euler's rotation theorem works for rigid bodies rotating in space, as it does for coordinate systems (what you call "environment"). In physics, according to the theory of special relativity, the Lorentz transformation describes how two observers' varying measurements of space and time can be converted into each other's frames of reference. In a homogeneous space, the Lorentz transformation is a linear transformation. It may include a rotation of space. Since relativity postulates that the speed of light is the same fo
  16. Nonsense. The statues could not have existed long before his subjects arrived to settle the island. Estimated dates of initial settlement of Easter Island ranges between 300 to 1200 CE, coinciding with the arrival of the first settlers in Hawaii. The statues were carved from 1100–1680 CE, according to rectified radio-carbon dates. (Source, Hunt, T. L.; Lipo, CP (2006). "Late Colonization of Easter Island". Science 311 (5767): 1603–6. doi:10.1126/science.1121879. PMID 16527931. And Hunt, Terry; Lipo, Carl (2011). The Statues that Walked: Unraveling the Mystery of Easter Island. Free Pre

  18. Perhaps you are correct. But your complaint was not about continental plate and oceanic plate subduction. It was about oceanic-oceanic subduction (or "seafloor-seafloor" subduction as you call it), which had already been expressed in #57 and strangely enough quoted in your complaint post #61. Of course, I have no way of knowing if you edited my quote in post 63. :P In sum, back on the topic, Rocket's strange claim has been debunked, unless as you pointed out Turtle, erosion was responsible for the vanishing of Mu. But it's going to be quite difficult justifying how an entire continent co
  19. Neither post #62 nor #57 were edited after your posts. Perhaps you misread them to begin with? <_< And you do have a way to determine if #62 or #57 were edited. EDIT> see your post #61 where you quoted my post #57 (or Rocket's post #58 where he quotes post #57): it is identical. Notice the oceanic-oceanic reference. EDIT 2> In your post #63 you quoted my entire post #62. They are identical, hence no edit. The mystery of your complaint remains a mystery. CC
  20. In post #57 I mentioned: Oceanic-oceanic plate convergence is obviously a factor to take into consideration, but it is still an extremely slow process. CC
  21. Yes, at subduction zones the sea floor does sink (on the edges of continental and oceanic plates) as the plates converge. The problem is he uses this mechanism as a means to explain the disapparition of the mythical continent. From his second post, it is wrtitten: "Lemuria supposedly existed hundreds of thousands of years ago. This great continent was said to occupy the vast portion of the Pacific Ocean that once stetched from the shores of Japan, the trenches of the Philippine Deep and the Marianas, the Easter Islands, and along the western coast of present day Alaska and California. The l
  22. Nonsense. Your claim that geological data supports the sunken continent myth is absurd. All of the geological, topographical, tectophysical and paleomagnetic evidence (orientations of glacial striations along with the fossil pattern record) supports the theory of continental drift and oceanic-oceanic plate convergence occurring over timescales of hundreds of millions of years. This process in exceeding slow, it is ongoing and measurable today still. Subduction occurs on the edges of continental plates. It is not due to the sinking of large sheets of the earths crust (or mantle) where a m
