Ah, zaius, still lecturing us on physics?

I thought you might keep quiet for a bit.

Hawking's rival says Higgs wager win is icing on cake

Hawking, Britain's most famous living scientist, said the discovery should earn Higgs the Nobel Prize, but admitted in an interview that it would make him $100 poorer.

"I had a bet with Gordon Kane (of the University of Michigan) that the Higgs particle wouldn't be found," Hawking told BBC News on Wednesday. "It seems I have just lost $100."

Re: The cosmological constant problem and quintessence.
As stated earlier the new “dark energy” is not a proposed modification to Einstein’s curvature tensor but it is by all definition an addition of energy (albeit dark) added to the stress energy tensor. Personally, I believe dark energy is just fantasy.

And the relevance of your beliefs to reality is ... ?

Fortunately reality doesn't give a flying fuck what you believe or whether you understand statistics.

Edited by Dr Adequate, : No reason given.

Re: Evidence of the Big Bang
However this evidence is the most important fact of all.

How do you respond to the fact that the Big Bang model matches the power spectrum of the CMB so well?

My prediction: he won't even lie, he'll talk nonsense.
