Re: Global warming - 'Chasing Ice'?

Its the new religion. Man always thinks in his own ego, that the weather changes based on man's actions. That by making small sacrifices in life, people can change the weather, or in this case prevent a hell inspired overheating of the Earth. The fear of tobacco is another classic example. Man wants...

Re: Is an "earthquake machine" being used?

Around where I live, the disaster response agency keeps growing. When there is a 'disaster' like an oil pipeline leaks a few hundred barrels worth of oil, the disaster agency swing into action. The same agency which determines the response necessary, is also the agency which is in charge of spending...

Re: Parenting In the Simulation Age

Probably every kid since the dawn of civilization has lived in his own Simulation Age. Look at when WWI broke out, how millions of men ran down to the military volunteering sites to kill those evil Germans, who were doing all those awful things like bayoneting Belgian babies. How many questioned if ...

Re: Is an "earthquake machine" being used?

'Natural' disasters also seem like a good face saving way of making big reforms or at least buying time for governments. 'We had planned to give a 5% salary increases across the 10 million government workers, but after the horrible earthquakes now is not the time.' They also give the people somethin...

Re: Life on Venus? (and other planetary musings)

I was reading the Wikipedia page on Venus. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus The Wiki page has Venus' gravity as 9/10ths of Earth's, and looking at its orbit it looks to me that it might be a temperature range where life could be. But as I read through the page, the confidence of the scientists in...

Re: Electric Universe?

Thunderbolts looks to have some interesting posters.. but the forum owners & moderators believe in the space fairy tales and suspiciously ban posters who raise questions on those programs. Now at first a newb internet forum reader might say - 'hey thats ok, I can just debate the space programs elsew...

Re: What is Gravity?

An interesting formula I came across is that the magnetic attraction or repulsion between two magnets is proportional to the same inverse square law as Gravity. The same goes for the pull/push between two electric fields. And the intensity of light also falls by the inverse square of the distance. T...

Re: Stardate, NPR & created programs

They have enticing aspects, like well written, interview a number of experts, show some of the complexity of an issue, they actually...

Re: And So It Begins - Gun Seizure without notice in CA, USA

Another motive, is to keep the populace afraid so that the populace will support increased amounts of tax revenues spent on policing. I believe in areas like middle class parts of big cities, and in basically the whole of smaller cities, violent crime today is just not that common. Ya if you are liv...

Re: The chains of yes or no belief

I was hoping this strength of belief is how educated people think about the world, but I live in a big government city, where everyone has bachelor's & master's degrees, and they view the world in this duality of extremes. Eg.. their belief that bigger government is a good idea 100% of the time, reg...

The chains of yes or no belief

Whether through intellect or how children are taught, most people view everything in a binary yes/no, good/evil paradigm. How I view things is through strength of belief or strength of disbelief. This means I can read new information, which can shift the strength of my belief. In this continuum of s...

Cretinetti, did you guys beat the Russians to have the first mentally handicapped person in space?

I hope she remembers her seat belt when she gets in the Bell and re-enters the Earth's atmosphere going 24,000km/hr.

Re: Physical π : Pi's relationship to 4

.... To those who think that energy is needed to keep an object in a circular orbit: Can you explain where this energy is coming from, for example when the moon is orbiting the earth? I am not saying there is no force. But the force is not doing any "work" (in the physical sense). So it has no infl...

Re: Global warming - 'Chasing Ice'?

One of the painful things to watch, is young women raised on a steady diet of public school and public media, and as one area of their 'learning', coming out as zealots against global warming... the painful part is watching their justifications why it is ok for them to travel half way around the wor...

Re: Physical π : Pi's relationship to 4

It seems to me the debunkers of MM's Pi=4 theory have the stronger points. This discussion shows that in science one must be incredibly precise with the definitions. A circle is an imaginary mathematical idea, that is useful for calculations with objects that are the size that humans interact with i...
