Are The Laws Of Physics Right-Wing Values?


Recommended Posts

Actually sorry to be picky but according to gr you could argue (and this the official stance) that gravity is actually not a real force, I think it is. Electricity is a force, or at least one manifestation of it (electromagnetic). Atomic physics includes the the nuclear forces, especially the strong one.

 

But technically non of what was listed is one of the forces (if you don't count gravity). Strong, weak and electromagnetic.

Electricity is not a force. There are electromagnetic forces (electrostatic and magnetic) but "electricity" is the stuff you get out of the wires in your living room.  

 

As for gravity, for most people and for most purposes it is a force and in fact is commonly referred to as one of the 4 forces in nature : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fundamental_interaction. Sure in GR it is replaced by spacetime curvature and all that, but I don't think it helps in this discussion to go into all that. 

 

"Atomic physics" is a whole subject, of which the strong and weak force are just one element. 

 

The OP betrays woolly thinking and needs sorting out.
