To the Conspiracy Theorist

Posted on November 24, 2015 at 1:12pm 7 Comments

The world is actually a lot more boring than you give it credit for.  People, as with electrons, seek the lowest energy state.  People generally are far too lazy to really care full time about monitoring and controlling you.  No doubt some of this goes on, but people also like to relax and enjoy a fine meal.  Can't be world-dominating all the time.  Need a break now and again.  No doubt governments try to control people, but this process is not perfect.  The world is far too messy and…


If You Were to Eat Enough Doughnuts

        By the way, speaking of matter, there is indeed a lot of space between nuclei and their companion electrons.  This means that matter is not as dense as we usually think of it, but it is quite solid because of the electrostatic force.  The electrostatic force is what keeps you from falling through your chair.  However, if you were to eat enough doughnuts, you might become massive enough to overcome the Chandrasekhar Limit, at which point your gravity would exceed electron degeneracy…

Expert Opinion and Arguments from Authority

Posted on October 25, 2015 at 2:40am 12 Comments

        It is not as a general rule irrational to place some degree of trust in expert opinion if that expert opinion is informed by the scientific method.  This is because the success of the method is irrefutable.  And to the extent that experts adhere to the scientific approach and submit their work for peer review, we may assign some credibility to their work.  If every physicist on the planet says x is true, I had better have done the research before I attempt to refute them.  We do not…
