First off, let me just say that I've only been a member of these forums for about 3 weeks... and I've already seen more referances to these things
than I can possibly care to count!
It's not that I consider the theories stupid (well... except in one case), it's just that tons of people relate EVERYTHING to these! Oh, a new
television series! OBVIOUSLY this has to do with the New World Order! They're infiltrating our thoughts and minds and soon, if not already, we are
all under their gross, underestimated powers of mind control!
How about no? How about it's just a TV show - and the reason it's coming on is because there's a demand for such a show, and the people who make it
will become rich? I think that's plenty good a reason to start a TV show.
Or Planet X. Honestly, what's with that? "I had a dream that Planet X is coming! Obviously this will come true, as is the tendancy of random
dreams..." Trust me people, there's a difference between a vision and a dream. I've had visions whilst I've slept which have come true, and I can
tell the difference between something that happened and something that didn't/won't. Thus, when you say that it was a dream, then chances are it was
a dream. Two nights ago I had a dream that I saw a UFO. Does this mean I was abducted? No! It means that I dreamt of seeing a UFO. When I see a UFO in
my dreams, I try to yell - but do you know what I realized? You can't yell in dreams. No matter how hard you try. Because, whilst dreaming, your body
purposefully paralyzes itself. To scream/yell in your dream - do to the physical stress involved - would make you scream/yell in real life, and the
paralyzers make sure that just such stressful things don't happen.
And finally, Dark Matter and Dark Energy. Not every cosmic occurance must have something to do with these things. Dark Matter is NOT a source of
strange energies and mystical properties. It is matter, in some form or another, which is not normally detectable by light. Such as planets in far
away galaxies. We can't see 'em, and we can't account for the missing mass/energy when we sample that galaxy. We know some of the missing mass
belongs in planets and nebulae, so we put a rough number in, but that could be too small or too much, and so it's still considered Dark Matter. Then
there's dust clouds and Black Holes - things called MACHOs (Massive Astrophysical Compact Halo Objects) - which are there, bust suitably
undetectable. And then there's neutrinos and other such WIMPs (Weakly Interacting Massive Particles).
These are things that we know exist, but they still count as Dark Matter simply because they are not Stars - because they do not emit light.
Then there's Dark Energy. I don't know what it is about labelling something as "Dark" which makes it so "ooh! It must be something relating to
UFOs and universal matters!". Dark Energy is the same thing as Dark Matter, except for energy. We can't normally detect this energy, and so we call
it Dark to account for the missing energy when we take a sample of space and calculate its energy that we can see, and the energy it apparently has.
Perhaps we should name it by the things it's actually called, like the Casimir Effect (which only functions at incredibly tiny distances - but still
would account for some Dark Energy), or the weak (and in my opinion, but not some major physicists', stupid) theory of Vacuum Force - a kind of
These people need to take a step back, and relook at things. Understand some more of what they're talking about before they go on and post random
information that is almost completely useless.
I'm sure everyone else here has some similar opinions about really unbased arguements. People that see things and just jump on them before analyzing
them. And I am immeasurably glad to see some people argue points and argue against some of their own points, just to make sure and see that they could
Like the Casimir Effect. Until yesterday, I did not know about it. Someone responded to it, and I took a look at it. It apparently exists, and was
even predicted to exist. However, looking deeper into it, I found that it did not impact my arguement because it only functions at very tiny
distances. Although it could explain some of the "Missing Energy" mystery when trying to determine Dark Energy - it did not explain the universal
expansion problem which was my arguement. Still, I have to accept this proof and integrate it into my theories - despite it being wrong.
So, if ever you're thinking "Is this for real?" just look at my signature...
