Every assertion in physics must be able to be documented mathematically. Physics is not language class or postmodernist philosophy.
It is one thing to document something mathematically. It is quite another to prove something mathematically. It is even less favorable to try and grasp the reality of a phenomena soley through mathematics. After awhile, mathematics turns into a huge shell game.
So when you want to understand science, you read a book by (this is from Wikipedia) "an eccentric Latvian emigrant to the United States and amateur sculptor who single-handedly built the monument known as Coral Castle in Florida. He was also known for his unusual theories on magnetism."
Why do you think you should have any better luck uttering Ed's weird ideas than Ed did?
How do we ever really come to any vastly new understanding if we limit ourselves to only those things that are not unusual? Why not just investigate and use a little imagination? I personally think that the attitudes of the scientific community as displayed on this board are responsible for the retarded growth of scientific knowledge in the last 50 years. I know you will protest that there has been a great increase in knowledge. True, but I believe it could have been even greater without the current shackles placed upon it by the intellectual inquisition that is typified by the members on this board.
There are significant scientific problems with attempts to explain the formation of stars and planets from clouds of gas and dust.6 , 7 One main issue is that the hypothetical disk of gas and dust tends to dissipate too fast for the resulting planets to become as large as they are observed to be.
Oooh, if only they had any evidence for this.
Howling about evidence is a conversation stopper, and it never stops to think if the claim could possibly be true. Why don't you make a counter claim like the following: The accretionary disk is very likely to produce planets because the force of gravity acting on the dust and gas is stronger than the forces that cause dispersal in gases and small particles of dust? Afraid to stick your neck out?
Asking for evidence is only a conversation stopper to people who don't have any evidence.
Fuck you. I have told you all for the upteenth time. That i am here to discuss ideas. I don't have the type of evidence you assholes are looking for. Go to hell if you don't like the topic I want to discuss.
