  2. No scientific theory is ever “confirmed as true” There are experiments using atomic clocks, not light clocks (aren’t light clocks used only in thought experiments?) As some who has been involved in the development of GPS systems, I can assure you that this is bollocks. GPS has to take into effect Doppler (which is large do the receivers have to search for the signal) and GR to account for relative speed and gravitational potential. This is different for every satellite and not accounted for by the “factory offset” Key word being “apparent”

    Anyone read "Darwin's Black Box" ?

    There is no such thing. Not likely. There could be some examples to use in school lessons on logical fallacies, critical thinking, etc. So you can't be bothered to read it but you think it is wrong. Arrogance or naivety, I'm not sure. How about you give us some examples of this "bad science" and maybe we can tell you whether it is something you have failed to understand or, perhaps, something that Darwin got wrong but we know have a better understanding of. And, of course, a lot more has been explained since Wallace and Darwin's work. But there is a lot more to understand. That doesn't make Creationism any more credible.
  5. I have always thought this was the case (based on no real evidence!) - it seemed natural to me that religion would be adapted to serve the state as power became more centralised
  6. Who is Dr Wolf Adler and where was his statement published? His statement looks like complete nonsense. That is a history book. It is describing old (and apparently very stupid) ideas that people in the past had. https://www.routledge.com/Bad-Vibrations-The-History-of-the-Idea-of-Music-as-a-Cause-of-Disease/Kennaway/p/book/9781409426424 This is a science forum. That sort of idiotic website is not really useful. I love it. Then you should look for some scientific research on the subject.
  7. Please provide references. Are these from scientific publications? Or, as appears more likely, religious websites.

    Are Humans Aliens of this Planet?

    Our brains are not significantly different from other animals. We have some abilities that others don’t, and lack some capabilities that others have. No, because you have no evidence.

    Congratulations!

    Macromolecule properties

    It depends on the specific molecule
  11. Perhaps you can find an authoritative, peer-reviewed source to back up your claims? Instead of depending on the tabloid press who are not renowned for their accuracy or honesty.
  12. Why should we trust some random story, on a random website written by an unknown person (possibly you)?

    Self conscious,irrationality and analogy, induction

    ! Moderator Note You posted the same thing before and then ask for the thread to be closed. Do not keep opening threads on the same thing.
  14. "[Aquagenic urticaria] is sometimes described as an allergy, although it is not a true histamine-releasing allergic reaction like other forms of urticaria." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aquagenic_urticaria) IT IS NOT AN ALLERGY.
  15. It is still nonsense. I don't know who these people are (the "famous French expert" Dr. Lycus Carl is so famous that there is no mention of him on the Internet). I wouldn't be surprised if someone invented the names to make these idiotic statements sound more plausible.
  16. I have yet to see any evidence that (a) this person exists and (b) that this anecdote is true. I think you have invented this story.
  17. Sounds like a lot of biased nonsense.
  18. I have no idea what "Montrel" is. And that link could be a work of fiction for all I know. As you are unable to provide a reputable source, I am sceptical of the whole story. Maybe you have made it up. Quite. Or she is faking it for attention.
  19. The Daily Mail is not a "news source". It is a far-right rag that mainly publishes fiction. I would not be surprised if they published something as idiotic as a "water allergy" story. But I am not surprised you are unable to provide a reputable reference to this case.

    Are Humans Aliens of this Planet?

    The presence of oxygen in Earth's atmosphere is a result of the organisms that could do photosynthesis. This released the toxic pollutant oxygen into the atmosphere into the atmosphere that destroyed many other species. Humans are not very different from other species. We are very similar to other primates. We have a lot in common with other mammals. We have quite a lot in common with other vertebrates. We have some very important things in common with every other organism on the planet. Do you have any evidence for this?

    Irrationality: analogy and induction

    Rubbish. Here is an intro to programming inductive reasoning: https://ai.vub.ac.be/~ydehauwe/decl_prog/7_InductiveLogicProgramming.pdf And here is something on the use of analogy in AI: http://www.jfsowa.com/pubs/analog.htm
  22. ! Moderator Note OK. This appears to be exactly the same stuff you have posted before. There is no point in starting a new thread on it. You have failed to provide support for your claims before and I see no reason to expect you will this time. Closed pending moderator discussion

    Electrons in orbit in the atom

    As electrons are indistinguishable, I don't think these two can be distinguished. But there isn't really any reason think that it is not a particular electron moving to a higher energy level. (It might also be possible to describe in statistical terms as all of the electrons spending some proportion of their time at the higher energy level, I don't now.) (I'll leave someone else to comment on the last part as it is so long since I did anything with electron orbitals... )
