Urgent and important to all. Please see the link below. This is an event organized by the international scientific community to demonstrate against and resist the Trumph administration's blatantly…Continue
"Gravity is considered one of the basic intrinsic forces of the universe. It's exact nature is unknown but Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and its equations does a pretty good job of explaining it and predicting its…"
"In reply to Michael - we have to remember that gravity is not magnetism, they are 2 different things. The earth, and all other bodies for that matter, have gravity. Gravitational attraction is as BenGee said recently is dependent on mass. That is…"
"Nicely done sir BenGee. The whole attempt to restart this argument by comparing magnets to electromagnetic force and then tortuously turning that about to say magnets are the same as gravity and that electromagnetic force is somehow exempt to…"
"My last comment: I have repeatedly agreed that the Bang is an unproven,hypothesis for which there is some little supporting evidence. The debunking of the Plasma universe hinges on there being NO evidence that supports it. These are 2 distinct…"
"Tom, You really need to look in the mirror man. Neither BenGee nor I, nor anyone else here have championed the Big Bang. We have debunked the Plasma Universe concept. You appear to be unable to even understand that nature of the discussion. You…"
"I got your invite Tom. I am responding openly so there can be no mistake about anything I have said.
I have no interest in continuing to discuss this pseudoscience Electric Universe crap in any form. Especially since you intimated I was…"
"Tom, sorry if I missed the private reply. I haven't checked in here for a few days.
I freely admit I have no detailed competence in the field of plasma universe physics. My comments were off the cuff based on what little I knew,,which is pretty…"
"I didn't really resent anything, I was only tongue in cheek . I once had a histology professor tell me he was in favor of taking the worst freshman student of each semester out on the drill field and publicly shooting him as an example to the…"
"Tom: Yes, I am very familiar with inductive vs deductive reasoning. As a professional scientist I should hope so! I am not so familiar with the plasma universe hypothesis (I am a biologist who believes science is science regardless of…"
"It is surprising to me that amidst all this discussion of inductive and deductive reasoning, hypotheses and theories about the Bang, everyone seems to have missed the point of the science. Of course the Bang is NOT a theory. Theory is a tested…"
"John, and Joan, I have long suspected that masochism is genetic and passed from mothers to daughters.
I'm just finishing Cindy Meston's and David Buss' book, Why Women Have Sex, and thinking the behavior is less common, though still…"
"Thanks Joan. Your reply makes me wonder why women especially are not out there raging against this social trend. Like you I come from a far different past and know all too well the drudgery and limited lives of many women in less modern…"
"John! so powerfully and wonderfully written, I have goosebumps up my spine. Just reading it I overcame my moment of despair and you lifted me to a higher plane. I remember all too well the life of my grandmothers; my life is far easier because…"
