  1. Scientific knowledge, while not absolute, is ever more accurate. Science is a self correcting process, no other method has yielded the results the scientific method has been able to provide.
  2. This short video details the nuclear saltwater rocket, should such technology be pursued?
  3. This nothing but conspiracy bollocks. NASA is telling the truth in this case, the former idea is based on the idea the earth would flip upside down to flip the magnetic field. We now know this is improbable to say the least..
  4. A scientist saying something, if it is their field, and they have gone through pere review, should be taken seriously but others are and will continue to check his work to make sure the theory hold up under all conditions. There are scientific assertions or theories that it is difficult to see how they could be refuted, heliocentric theory will not be over turned, evolutionary theory, cell theory, disease theory, and many others are so finely known that no one thinks they will ever be overturned, maybe refined, but that would be tiny changes at best. I to tend to be rather abrupt bu
  5. 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.
  6. This site has fallen on hard times I see! Do you not know what a theory is in scientific context? In science a theory is as good as it gets, or to use your terminology as "solid" as it gets. In science the word you might be looking for is hypothesis but theories are solid, from heliocentric theory to evolutionary theory they are the best explanation we have for explaining a phenomenon. Yes, faster than light is impossible, an object cannot be accelerated to a speed equal to or in excess of the speed of light in a vacuum. It must be remembered that the speed of light limit is not really a
  7. Hey dude, I hope you are doing well, good old Hypo seems to have slowed down a bit..
  8. If, and I know what a big word if is, but if you could take species of animals and plants from Earths past and plant them in the ecology they occupied in the past. Assume a blank planet, some modern animals would be included, but the point is that each of these animals and place them in the place they occupied would such an diverse ecology work?
  9. To anyone who doesn't like this... well we probably can't be friends...
