  1. Yeah, this is my thinking as well. Match the group you are with. Generally some mix of recognizing what others are good at, while downplaying your own skills. Both to reasonable limits of course. Don't be afraid to shine, just be willing to share the spotlight.
  2. Proprioception is pretty well understood... Entirely possible to fool the system and "replace" the phantom limb. All based on your perception. If your theory was correct, your visual perception wouldn't matter.

    Osmos

    Best mention I could readily find: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oral_rehydration_therapy#Physiological_basis As I understand the above the higher sodium concentration is enough to get the glucose through. Also Osmos is more commonly referred to as Osmosis. Equalization across a membrane.
  4. Exactly my point. Thankfully, I didn't come up with that bit of craziness. Why it is used as an example. Parthenogenesis is at the far end of theoretically possible, but wouldn't have any reason to think it would result in someone with male characteristics. Only other real world thing would be if Mary was a chimera with a former male sibling's cells. In that case Jesus would be normal in terms of his genetics, if not the circumstances of his conception.
  5. Falls under magnetohydrodynamics. Combines Navier-Stokes with Maxwell's equations of electromagnetism. I've always been kind of interested in it after we had a case of ball lightning on the sub. Followed the poor guy up a ladder(read: stairs). He survived but got singed pretty good.
  6. I'm really not saying miracles are real. I'm saying there is some evidence out there. Not the best quality of evidence nor delivered by the most reputable research, but still evidence to consider. I'm sure most people have seen the assorted documentaries and whatnot. You venture too far down that path though and you are left talking about the Omega Point theory, baryon-lepton conservation and Jesus being a XX male. My personal plan is to wait until I die and then ask. God and/or an Afterlife may not exist, but one can still make plans based on a potential. Anyways in that vein
  7. After my own demise? You'll have to wait a bit for that one. If at all possible though I promise to get the word out.
  8. 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 immo
  9. 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. 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.
  10. 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. You would end up with only facts though. Freedom to believe or disbelieve is dependent on having something you can't explain.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. The Omega Point theory is not widely accepted as being true in the first place...
  14. Are you talking about wireless charging using radio waves, or an actual zero energy input device?
  15. Yeah, easier to just store electricity and then emit the light on demand. Plasma based weapons could be another option to explore.
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. Got it exactly right. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decay_chain
  19. 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 materia
  20. If you right click on the axis you should have an option to format, then need to adjust the interval between tick marks. Hard to be sure this is what you want without looking over your shoulder.
  21. 1 Foot The Foot is a unit of measurement. 1 Q The Planck Charge is a unit of measurement. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. Original page - translated Fraudsters! Just who I would want to lend credibility.
  24. 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 m
  25. 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.
