I say there is lots of room for alternative science.
You see, real scientists and real science do not have a problem delineating concepts and phenomena that are not completely understood, or even remain
a mystery altogether. That's the spirit of honesty. Contrast this with the endless silly parade of charlatans, wannabes and plain idiots, which goes
in this thread year in, year out, where every link (or most) contain proclamations like:
"Simple Theory of Everything
"This will change the world
theory that explains how magnetic fields create not only plasma, but actual matter
"Fingerprint of God
"Number nine is
the missing particle"
"I have created a Black Hole
on my workbench in the lab"
In most cases the math behind these comic statement can be easily understood and operated by my 5 year old kid. And I don't mean in it a good way --
sorry guys but simple arithmetic doesn't get you far in desribing our Universe. But I digress -- in the above it is obvious that it was either idiocy
or purposeful deceit that led these person to produce these monumentally ambitious pronouncements with zero merit or evidence to support same. What's
sad, there are people who willfully perform an equivalent of lobotomy on themselves, and put even half a penny of stock in this idiocy.
If there is "lots of room" for anything in science, that's room for more research. As to "alternative science", in the sense that is presented here,
sorry, there is already way too much of this sad excrement here on ATS pages and everywhere else.
