This should really be titled:

"Biased researchers attempt to rewrite history to conform to a bizarre and unproven theory about a missing planet no one has ever found evidence of".

To be in any way credible as a theory there needs to be actual evidence, and less selective rewriting of known historical events which have (on the whole) already been explained by events which are supported by other scientific data.

Ask a mathematician how does gravity work?
Ask a physicist how does gravity work?

One of them, will call it something of divine work.. The other, well, he will spit out how things does actually work..

In other solar systems they're seeing the effects on stars, including them passing in front of the star. In our own they're looking out for a fairly cold body with very little indication where it might be.

Somehow I feel that if I were to ask this mathematician how gravity worked, he'd be able to tell me.

Its great he has the credibility and isnt biased, hopefully he can elaborate even further in the realm science..

So what is your problem with his findings exactly, other than that he is a mathematician? Have you actually looked at his research to see if it is feasible? There doesn't seem to be anyone saying that his work is 100% sound and should be theoretical or anything, but you are straight up dismissing his entire hypothesis without even looking at it based on his credentials alone. Not very scientific.

That's just funny, I don't care who you are


Seriously though, we need to spend more time and effort getting off this rock than we spend destroying it.

Finding out what is out there is the first step.

When i look into S. Hawking and his theories, about a hundred years ago they were called sci-fi authors.. Cause its a sci-fi scenario, if you build institutions around imaginations does it become a problem eventually.. Yes, yes it does.. If i use philosophical mathematics to explain something in a dreamworld does it make it real??

No, it doesnt.. This is reality far to often seen in the land of the free, no good..

So mathematical models aren't a good model for reality is what you are saying?

How about discrediting his work rather than him personally?

(Please note my reply to the op on page 1 where I noted some of the errors in the article)

If the models can be proven, empiric and with observation.. The model could work for a "longer" time and it becomes a "universal".. To many release, to much fantasies.. If they could just label them sci-fi instead of using the label of credibility to sell books..

could be linked to a suspected ninth planet,


My - Mercury
Very - Venus
Easy - Earth
Memory - Mars
Jingle - Jupiter
Seems - Saturn
Useful - Uranus
Naming - Neptune
Planets - Pluto

See, we already have 9 planets (unless the jury is finally in on Pluto's status?) and in saying that, when all is said and done I always come back to...Somewhere something incredible is waiting to be known - Carl Sagan

Good article, it's definitely piqued my interest.

I did, its in the first page.. He uses his credibility, in my country this is called interest of conflict... You get hanged by media..

Pluto is no longer classed as a planet, but instead is a dwarf planet. That means it's no longer one of the 9.

So unless a mathematical model is 100% accurate then it is 100% useless in predicting future events?

If we could just have someone like Carl back again, i think this world would be a better place with him..

Sorry, but I didn't see you do anything of the sort.

Saying something is wrong without an explanation doesn't make it so. Try explaining why you think it's wrong.

you are comparing apples and oranges..

Look we found a Dyson Sphere, how did that conclusion *pop* they only thing you could relate to with the KIC was a sci fi novel..

You need an object first rule, if i am to predict something i need something physical..

Sosruko I've come to the mathematical conclusion that you are either a troll or ignorant. I've gathered enough from your 8 posts on this thread to make that statement.

There is EVIDENCE that there is a body out there that orbits between 200au and 1300au from the sun.

Wobbles and movements of other objects that wouldn't do it by themselves is an indication of something doing it to them.
