I was very excited when started to read this thread because surely humanity needs more prodigies, however I couldn't help but roll my eyes when
watching the first video... Writing his calculations on a window? That's so "A Beautiful Mind" and is without a doubt just pure show, probably made by
his parents. There's no practicity at all in doing that unless you just want to show off. Later on I got to read the
posted by SJE98 and something doesn't seem right:
"So, um, in the big-bang theory, what they do is, there is this big explosion and there is all this temperature going off and the temperature
decreases really rapidly because it's really big. The other day I calculated, they have this period where they suppose the hydrogen and helium were
created, and, um, I don't care about the hydrogen and helium, but I thought, wouldn't there have to be some sort of carbon? Otherwise, the carbon
would have to be coming out of the stars and hence the Earth, made mostly of carbon, we wouldn't be here. So I calculated, the time it would take to
create 2 percent of the carbon in the universe, it would actually have to be several micro-seconds. Or a couple of nano-seconds, or something like
that. An extremely small period of time. Like faster than a snap. That isn't gonna happen."
"Because of that," he continued, "that means that the world would have never been created because none of the carbon would have been given 7 billion
years to fuse together. We'd have to be 21 billion years old . . . and that would just screw everything up."
For starters is very hard to understand what he's saying, not because it's "out of our league" but because he doesn't express himself very good
(especially for having such a high IQ). On top of that, even though he doesn't "care for hydrogen and helium" he should of know that carbon is based
on helium so no, there was really no carbon during the explotion and neither on the early universe because of its temperature.
But this is the worst part: Earth is not made "mostly of carbon" and if he's so smart he should of know that. The earth's crust is mostly made of
oxigen followed by silicon (carbon ranks very low on the list
the Earth's core is mainly made of iron and nickel. This is common knowledge, I'm certainly no prodigy and I learnt it on high school.
So either this kid is an invention by his parents or he's really interested in science but he's not at the level of a genius as the media and his
parents are claiming. Let's hope for the latter.
