  1. I have that sinking feeling I'm being drawn in. Obviously we need more cranks here to enliven our days...

     

     

    Faith - firm belief in something for which there is no proof

     

    By straightforward reasoning if there is sufficient proof there can be no faith.

     

    Most generic definition anyways. Other definitions are in the form of trust or belief in religious doctrine. Equally valid but still a bit on the pointless side if your knowledge level is sufficient.

     

     

    I figure I'll just ask(or not) about the assorted miracles after death. Most efficient strategy. Only in the case of physical immortality will I devote time to investigating them.

  2. Not really how I interpret it but okay.

     

    Whether these events happened exactly as described is less of an issue to me than whether at some point they happened even if to a lesser degree.

     

    Honestly, Occam's razor suggests it was just massive poetic license and misunderstood events. Don't need much in the way of science to explain in that case.

     

     

    Believing something with out evidence or facts is nothing but gullibility...

     

     

    Which we also define as faith. If you can explain everything, you can no longer have faith in anything.

     

    Really doesn't matter what you believe, but you should at least have the option to make up your own mind on the subject.

  3. Would you care to cite some of that evidence for those things i have put in bold print?

     

     

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodom_and_Gomorrah#Historicity

     

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flood_myth#Claims_of_historicity

     

    Red Sea was something to the effect of an earthquake causing a tidal wave to form. As the wave moved up the Red Sea the water drained out before it. Moses was able to cross, Pharaoh pursuing was caught directly in its path.

     

     

    Not the best quality evidence but reasonably plausible or I wouldn't have mentioned it.

     

     

     

    How do you lose a degree of freedom when discovering that a miracle can occur and be repeatable through scientific observation? Also, isn't it mostly in human nature to be curious about the world around you? To want to know all there is to know? Being able to explain away phenomena seems essential to the human condition.

     

     

    You would end up with only facts though. Freedom to believe or disbelieve is dependent on having something you can't explain.

  4. Division of the loaves and fishes? Pillars of salt?

     

    You could debate whether they were speaking literally or not, but you could make that same point about any of the assorted miracles in the Bible.

     

    Some of the geological and medical miracles maybe. Some of those explanations make "Goddidit" start to look reasonable, but I'll allow the possibility.

     

    I just think it violates some essential human element attempting to explain everything away. If you can explain every miracle you deny yourself a degree of freedom. I figure I'll find out(or not) in due time. My own random thoughts on the matter, feel free to believe what you will.

  5. On the flip side scientists are developing a method to turn female bone marrow into sperm. It will only be a matter of time until we have a whole generation of little messiahs running around.

     

     

    I honestly don't doubt that some recorded events had a real world cause. A fair bit of evidence for that. Sodom and Gomorrah, Red Sea, Flood, etc.

     

    My issue comes when people attempt to explain all miracles away in the same fashion. If they were all caused by natural phenomenon then they need to be repeatable. If they are repeatable, they aren't miracles.

     

    Leave God some kind of gaps.

  6. Main issue is that this isn't a Scientific Journal or even one of the less than Scientific Journals out there. The next Einstein could publish here and would have a rough time of claiming credit, let alone a Nobel prize.

     

     

    Most of what you write is also vague. You don't get points in science for vagueness.

     

    The guy who says:

     

    "Hypocortisine in a 5 mg dose along with a 30 mg dose of Thetrazine, will cure Trewq Cancer in 9-10 days."

     

    will get the credit.

     

     

    Besides that as has been mentioned your "cure" would kill the person and then some. There are real world novel treatments out there that are safer by far. That's what is going to get the research.

     

  7. the Lorentz equation does give a more accurate time

     

     

    This is absolutely correct. As you are now on record for stating this we can stop debating the matter.

     

    Galilean transforms stopped being used because they didn't accurately describe reality. That's it. No grand conspiracy, they just didn't work at the observed speeds.

  8. Our world population growth has been quietly slowing as of late.

     

    IMO the only issue we'll have to deal with is a finite population. Presents social problems for countries, but ecologically we'll be better off.

     

    They've been making inroads on intercity gardens and skyscraper farming. Not sure on how it stacks up in terms of efficiency, but is a promising development.

     

    I think we actually have enough resources for everyone. We'll probably end up with a renewable energy and recycling based economy. There's a whole lot of "garbage" sitting out there we can process. Any additional material we can use plants/microbes to produce/extract for us. Easily enough material goods available for everyone and we're already moving away from material possessions anyways.

  9. 1 Foot

     

    The Foot is a unit of measurement.

     

    1 Q

     

    The Planck Charge is a unit of measurement.

     

     

    In physics, Planck units are physical units of measurement defined exclusively in terms of five universal physical constants listed below, in such a manner that these five physical constants take on the numerical value of 1 when expressed in terms of these units.

     

    the gravitational constant, G,

    the reduced Planck constant, ħ,

    the speed of light in a vacuum, c,

    the Coulomb constant, (4πε0)−1 (sometimes ke or k), and

    the Boltzmann constant, kB (sometimes k).

     

     

    Bit redundant but to be clear that bolded part is the reason that Planck charge was invented.

     

    It is less arbitrary than a unit based upon a human appendage, but it is still arbitrary.

  10. I also dislike video "proofs", but never watched them thinking that they are actual proof. But more as another tool of information that if I come across something I didnt hear or read about before, I turn around and research it without going to any sites like youtube

    To raise new questions, new possibilites, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science

    Albert Einstien

    What kind of person or group would benfit from promoting a psuedo science, but I will take your warning into consideration though.

    But still think the concept of the SEG itself is still viable, I just haven't gained a true comprehension of it yet, but when I do being deterred by a psuedo science will have no effect on me.

     

    Also at the end of the day my hypothesis is that the SEG or sceince and math behind is viable and feasable to the needs of the world, and as with any hypothesis it needs to tested, tested, tested, again and again to remove all possible doubt.

     

     

    Advertisement dollars, promotional books, kits, research funding, etc.

     

    Big business selling people snake oil. I'd do it myself if I could stomach the hypocrisy.

     

     

    Einstein also said, "You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else."

     

     

    The 3 laws of thermodynamics are the rules of the game. Within those rules you still have a ton of room to maneuver. There are real world novel energy sources you could apply your intelligence to instead.

     

    Microbial, human bio-energy, tidal, etc.

     

    Pseudoscience will just rot your brain.

  11.  

    In December 2000, one of the best physics journals in Russia , "Technical Physics Letters," published an article by VV Roshchina and SM Godin's "Experimental study of physical effects in dynamic magnetic system." It seems that the members of the editorial board of the article did not look hoped to conclude the reviewer. Meanwhile, even a quick look is enough to understand that it can be published only in some anthology of science fiction. Indeed, in a short note mentions the anti-gravity (the weight of the unit during the experiments subsided from 350 kg to 250 kg), and a "magnetic walls" found at a distance of 15 m from the axis of the apparatus, the magnetic field strength with distance from the axis does not decreased, and other miracles. To the credit of the editorial board, I must say that in the pages of his magazine she apologized to readers for publishing this article. And one more little detail regarding the mentioned article. It is published on behalf of the Institute of High Temperatures, however, the latter to these "studies" has nothing to do. And such a facility at the institute has never been. By the way, this kind of forgery - it is standard practice pseudoscience.

     

    Original page - translated

     

     

    Fraudsters! Just who I would want to lend credibility.

  12. Just to note, most posters here dislike video "proofs". Serious time sucks.

     

     

    There is ambient electricity. The problem is tapping it in an efficient manner.

     

    Mainly thinking Telluric currents, Earth's magnetic field and your neighborhood leakage. Mostly low energy sources or come with high inefficiencies.

     

    The easiest issue to pinpoint in SEG is that the permanent magnets would lose energy. You certainly could get something to spin for awhile running off them, but it wouldn't go on forever.

     

    For that matter if you did have a free energy source that for whatever reason required magnets, electromagnets would be more reasonable to work with instead.

     

     

     

    ...and there are some impossible things. You cannot breath in a vacuum no matter how much you believe.

     

    Your thoughts can impact reality and your perception of that reality, but reality still has the final say.

  13. Really nobody knows for sure, so you are free to believe whatever you want on this one.

     

     

    My own thought is that a singularity wouldn't be a singularity anymore in an environment without space itself existing.

     

    MU/0 => MU

     

    Cyclic universe theory with an entropy reset going on in between.

     

     

    Best fit in terms of observable phenomenon. There are plenty of other theories out there though. God, vacuum fluctuation, colliding branes, you name it.

  14. Once more unto the breach...

     

     

    In physics, Planck units are physical units of measurement defined exclusively in terms of five universal physical constants listed below, in such a manner that these five physical constants take on the numerical value of 1 when expressed in terms of these units.

     

    the gravitational constant, G,

    the reduced Planck constant, ħ,

    the speed of light in a vacuum, c,

    the Coulomb constant, (4πε0)−1 (sometimes ke or k), and

    the Boltzmann constant, kB (sometimes k).

     

     

    So from this we see that these units were made up wholesale for a specific reason.

     

     

    1Q = e72b7e167f60ba883f3dcf1d84bbe605.png

     

    If Planck Charge(Q) did not have this property it would not be Planck Charge. It must equal 1.875 x 10-18 coulombs or it would not be Planck Charge. Electric charge does not equal this, thus, it is not Planck Charge.

     

    This allows us to say something like 5Q instead of 5 times that entire mess up there. It is purely for convenience. In no way does it somehow dethrone Electric charge.

     

     

    This came off stronger than I typically care to write, but I really see no other way of getting through. Please for your own sake take it to heart and consider your stance.

  15. They can obtain location data legally from public information your phone broadcasts, legally from the provider and less than legally through hacking. Might as well give up the ghost on that one.

     

    I was just thinking an anonymous database for everyone located within some radius of a crime. When something occurs an automated non-binding request for assistance goes out. Something reasonable that balances both privacy and security.

  16. We commonly don't do this in the US for many of the same reasons listed. Considering the religious and human rights issues I strongly doubt there will be any national implementation. I find it more than a little concerning that other countries think we're happy to microchip ourselves.

     

    IMO more useful would be tracking all the phone GPS data. Would help to rapidly narrow down potential suspect/witness pools.

  17. First Inow, I do not like tools. Especially ones who are programmed! Shows exactly how really high someones I.Q really is!

     

    Lets first look up deficit. Here is the definition just for you. Deficit: The amount by which a sum of money falls short of the required or expected amount; a shortage.

     

    The difference between the shortfall and the actual amount is turned to debt. As our government does one of two things to counter it. 1. Has the fed create more money to pay the debt with interest! Or 2. sells bonds to another party with interest. Both incur more debt. Which is cyclic and brings about a bigger deficit. Then is repeated.

     

    If you cannot understand this concept, then perhaps you should study Keynesian economics. But to help you out, make sure you read this link:http://www.usdebtclock.org/ That is actual debt!

     

    As to your opinion, it is just that, believe it or not! In either case you get the real repercussion's very soon. Why I dont follow blind men! They tend to have serious shortcomings!

     

     

    Federal Deficit: An excess of the federal government's spending over its revenue

     

    A deficit may lead to debt, but they really are two different things.

     

    You reduce a deficit through balancing revenue and spending. You reduce a debt by making payments.

     

    The payments could come straight from tax dollars or you can increase the total amount of money in circulation. Either option is equally valid if not equally wise.
