2. ## Pascal's wager and atheism (split from What made you stop believing in God?)

I think we are all going to the same place, or no place, regardless of whether you believe or don't believe... Unless of course you try to cheat and take on Pascal's Wager...then you are going to Hell.
3. ## Time definition

Where did I define anything? I don’t even know what “quantity of counteraction to forces” is supposed to mean. You have not defined it, and not even described it consistently
4. ## The solution of the Cosmological constant problem ?

I'm getting closer in my spreadsheet: I have the correct formula for $(\frac{\Omega_{r,0}}{a}+\Omega_{m,0})=(1-\Omega_{\Lambda,0}-(1-\Omega_0)a^3$. I'm just missing the numerical value of $(1-\Omega_0)$
5. ## How Long Earth Can Stand The Pollution?

Close, bu no cigar. This post was the one I made when I got back from the pub. As for pointing out your glitch- better late than never. Incidentally, "sober" isn't usually a verb. "Sober up" is. So you should say " It's good to sober up prior to replying, don't you think?" But I think you are right about your 2nd PS. (and I think some might benefit from an "I'm stoned" warning too.)
6. ## Pascal's wager and atheism (split from What made you stop believing in God?)

It wasn't meant to be clever, just mildly amusing. Since you have offered no arguments, for a few posts, only deflection tactics, I felt it legitimate to poke a little fun at them. You are of course welcome to post legitimate arguments to my points. If you get a chance to, and in an ideal world, yes; but there are a myriad reasons why you wouldn't or couldn't.
7. ## Pascal's wager and atheism (split from What made you stop believing in God?)

If I accidentally step on your toe should I apologise to some random stranger at a later date, or should I apologise to you?
8. ## Pascal's wager and atheism (split from What made you stop believing in God?)

Are you suggesting 'feeling better' is conditional on who is legitimate (to a believer that's the priest)? Most people don't don't need to actually wrong another person in order to feel retched/down by there misdemeanours, and even those that do are still allowed to feel better when forgiven, even if it's by proxy. Maybe, if ones crime is grievous, the feeling is amplified by the wronged doing the forgiving, but lets not forget we are all human and subject to the potential of humanities greatest heights as well as the most grievous atrocities.
9. ## How Long Earth Can Stand The Pollution?

It is so cool to read your invaluable input, John, but yours Saturday post, is delayed by two years... Notice when my post was made... ps. It's good to sober prior reply, don't you think? ps2. There should be added option to this forum "I am drinking".. whenever somebody drinks at weekend, presses button, which automatically delays his or her reply the all messages to forum..
10. Today
11. ## How Long Earth Can Stand The Pollution?

I can make the comparison quite easily. I go to the bank and explain that I want to put solar panels on my house to heat it (instead of using oil fired heating). I don't have the cash to pay for it, so I want a loan. And, as you say, the panels last about 25 years so I will take out a loan over that period. (In principle,I can then take out another loan for new panels when I need them. And the bank will be happy to tell me what the loan would cost- in terms of monthly repayments. I can then simply compare one set of monthly bills (oil + delivery etc) with the other (loan repayment etc.) (There are maintenance costs too but I can simply include them in my calculation) Now, it's not unreasonable for me to assume that the price of oil will rise- and it's possible that the interest rate will change. But, for now, I can compare the two options. Incidentally... "You can't predict price of oil" "It can, and will, go high," You just predicted it.
12. ## greater than > light speed? The small

Electrons do not really move in orbits. Perhaps the video was saying that if they did, then they would have to move faster than light? This is just one of many problems that quantum theory solves. (If they were moving in orbits, they would radiate and lose energy and fall into the nucleus, neither of which happen.) Spin is important. It is what dictates the structure of electron shells in atoms. And a main contribution to why solid materials feel ... well, solid. (Both because of the Pauli exclusion principle.)
13. ## greater than > light speed? The small

Ok, then I think it was a random video with not so reliable content if it implies velocities greater than speed of light in vacuum. Or did you draw the conclusion about velocities greater than speed of light? I think velocities and spin is included in detail in current models. Can you be more specific?
14. ## Interest in Greenland...

Greenland is autonomy. Does it allow its inhabitants decide themselves?
15. ## greater than > light speed? The small

I think it was a random video on orbiting electrons that it sometimes disappear from moving too fast. But for something this small you really have to consider how fast it moves or spins.
16. ## How Long Earth Can Stand The Pollution?

Why isn't it used, then?
17. ## The solution of the Cosmological constant problem ?

You're gonna laugh. I made a mistake earlier that we both didn't see. The good equality is : $(H/H_0)^2=\Omega_{\Lambda,H0} / \Omega_{\Lambda,H}$. of course I used $\Lambda_{m^-2}=3H^2\Omega_{\Lambda}/c^2$ problem for me I didn't succes to find the value of (H/H_0)^2 with all $\Omega$ I don't want to violate the rules of the speculation section by adding a spreadsheet as an attachment.

18. ## greater than > light speed? The small

No. Why does size matter? yes. They do? Do you have a reference for that or is it part of a new idea we can investigate? Electrons are not made of quarks in current models as far as I know. Electrons are fundamental particles. Photons are not made of quarks. Do you have a reference for that or is it part of a new idea we can investigate?
19. ## greater than > light speed? The small

No. Things with mass cannot travel at or above the speed of light. Photons and electrons are not made of quarks.
20. ## Time definition

And What kind of "force" has kg*s as unit? Compare definition of Newton: $kg*m*s^{-2}$ If object is motionless then there is no force acting on it so q=0 and therefore t = q/m = 0. Do you mean that time stands still for objects at rest?
21. ## greater than > light speed? The small

We agree that the smaller the particles the faster it moves? We got photon traveling at the speed of light. And electrons that orbit the atom sometimes even above light speed, speculation. And we further theorized the constitution of electrons, photons, and neutrons making out of quarks. What do you think is the moving speed of these quarks? If quarks do move on the border line of light speed, what does it say about the smallest fundamental particles? Is it a form of energy?
22. ## Time definition

t has second m has kilogram q has second * kilogram If quantity of counteraction of forses to motion doesn't exist then how Swansont defined different quantities of it for different masses?
23. ## Time definition

That does not match earlier statements. What units does t, q and m have? Earlier posts: and So what is q?

25. ## The solution of the Cosmological constant problem ?

As you have a mixed state of contributors though the principle contributor is Lambda your better off using the full formula. Formula one that you have would only apply to a Lambda only contributor. If you were to compare to say the CMB time at z=1100 you would get inaccurate answers as the CMB is part of the matter dominant Era shortly after the radiation Era. Lambda dominant Era started roughly at universe age 7 Gyr depending on dataset used Here is the H/H_0 as a function of redshift. $H=H_0\sqrt{\Omega_{r,0}(1+z)^4+\Omega_{m,o}(1+z)^3+\Omega_{k,0}(1+z)^2+\Omega_{\Lambda_0}}$ $\Omega_{k,o}=1-\Omega_{r,o}-\Omega_{m,o}-\Omega_{\Lambda,o}$ which describes the curvature term. Though for a critical dense universe simply set to curvature density to zero. Ie ignore it in the above equation. Now you can apply any dataset. (Lol you can even toy model expansion rates of different component universes such as a matter only universe ) simply set unneeded terms to zero Notice the $\Omega_\Lambda$ doesn't change...the total energy of Lambda however does.
26. ## venturi effect with electric field component.

I've been trying to put the math together for this, its out of my league. What i need to answer is: if each charged plate strips/adds electrons to the air molecules they touch, will this configuration of insulators and charged plates produce positive thrust along the main Y axis? -DT PS, "Tah-Dah!"
