Its really too bad this thread has become a battleground.

Instead of an intelligent debate and exchange of ideas.

You might want to go out into the real world, theories are great on paper, but "reality" (or our perception of it) tends to bite. String theory is semi-workable but incomplete and seriously, if you want to make a singularity, fusion's the "bomb," adiabatic reactors and particle degeneracy is where it's at bubba. The process doesn't require nearly as much energy as CERN which every day looks more and more like a make-work project that consumes as much tax revenue as possible while producing questionable or irrelevant results. Interesting that Shiva, the destroyer of ego/worlds/universe, is their mascot, WTF is up with that, eh?

Here's a question, naw, never mind, I already have the answer.

Welcome to the board.

Cheers - Dave

Still waiting for the answer to cpl's post that's like 10 pages back cpl if you see this will you message me explaining how that question is broken down and answered.

Hey if Pat Benatar can sing/say "Love is a Battlefield" (which is supposedly our highest form of expression) why can't we have a battlefield here on a forum over ideas and personalities? I mean seriously, life is a constant battle, an exchange of energies between opposing forces and as such it would seem our behavior is geared to operate that way naturally.

I'm so proud of myself. I actually read all 16 pages of this thread because I wanted to see if you would redact your earlier statements of absolute negation on all things unknown such as spirituality and mundane conspiracies.

I'll just take God (or souls or take your pick), for example. You say you know a god does not exist because there is no need for one in the string model nor is there any evidence (empirical). But... that's obviously just you projecting your personal feelings. Before we had evidence of all the things we now have evidence of, we don't say that we know they don't exist.

Before we had evidence of black holes, would it have been right to say that you know they don't exist? And, if that's the standard (to rebuke, using absolute language, anything lacking evidence), then does that mean your opinion of "knowing" something is invalid due to all the things you "knew" was false but later proven true?

Why not just get over your self and say "I don't know" when confronted with questions that you honestly don't know? I know professors who are very comfortable saying they don't know. You know why? Because they don't know!

For crying out loud, the Holomovement model is only a few doors down from the string theory and it has, within its structure, the room for god, spirituality, and all manner of supernatural phenomenon. Of course, it then becomes simply natural and not "super". The implicit order of things refutes any chaotic element (just keep zooming out and you'll see order) and only lends to the possibility of something even less explicit... to the magnitude of being beyond our observation.

To claim omniscience when we are so young in our understanding of the universe is the epitome of arrogance.

Maxwell's Demon is a flawed argument.
As soon as the demon is introduced to the chamber, it is no longer an isolated system, as the demon is adding energy to it. Entropy is only an issue in a closed system, as I understand it.

Or, I'm just talking out my butt...

Wow, so your a scientist, cool, me too, I'm a Biologist in fact, with a minor in Zoology; difference is your degree took 2 more years of school and I'M not going on here ridiculing everyone who may have alternative viewpoints. So I'm really glad you took the time out of your superior, science and factual filled life to come onto a website that you and your colleagues usually joke about to answer questions from people like us who you laugh about.


Same feeling I had. I'm a "rocket scientist" by profression and have degrees in physics and engineerng. Obviously, that's not a cutting-edge amount of knowledge in theoretical physics, but I sure don't feel the need to be condescending towards others. Feel free to correct us OP, but that's the distinct impression you give.

Ehh that's debatable if you look at deities as ancient astronauts, well science does suggest the high probability of life somewhere else in the universe..

Naa, a deity is not an alien...a alien may pose as a deity mind you, but they doesn't make it one.

A deity is...well, its a singular entity that has created things supernaturally that came from nothing

Ex: In the beginning, there was gandalf on a throne...he had a wand. he genie popped into existance angels, then earth, then stars and the sun, then man, then he got angry because man touched his body so he created a woman, then he got annoyed that snakes kept talking smack about him so he stopped that, then he flooded the world because everyone sucked except for a couple people who were good, but they turned out to suck also after awhile, so he genie popped himself into another person and went to earth to tell people to stop being idiots, then came back and met himself, then...etc

Whereas a ancient astronaut is simply "Hey zorg, watch what this primate does when I show him my zippo lighter...lulz...aww, they are making a statue of me holding my mighty zippo"

God though..well, by definition, god is the consciousness of all...sort of like the whole thing summed up...and who knows, our entire visible universe may be but a single neuron in a giant brain thing that has a degree of consciousness we cannot comprehend with our flea brains and couldn't even begin to consider how we could measure such an intelligence beyond the most basic of comprehensions.

just my perspective of course

my personal opinion on this entire thread is that in order for you to get your point accross to us you've done a little research and tried to pass yourself off as a scientist and therefore a more credible source of information in order to try and make more people read and listen to your point.

the very fact that your thread title only says "im a scientist" means your trying to use that to grab attention. as if being a scientist is the ultimate accolade.

im calling BS on this one!



He's either a book worm who does nothing but sits around and reads physics, or I'd guess a fresh PhD just starting off in the field.

What do you think about this research?

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Is there a way to obtain information from beyond our relativistic light cone using quantum entanglement? Does this research imply FTL communication is possible?

Hmm. I had a question for you but I guess I'll with hold it. I thought your opening post was interesting and witty but the way you completely blew off some of those equations made me wonder about you. Isn't string theory heavily rooted in advanced mathical concepts?
For some strange reason(equation avoidance) you really remind me of Bill Gaede...

Take it easy.

String theory is definitely correct. It's not a "speculative" or "controversial" theory. The details of why we definitely know it's right are too complicated to discuss here but basically this is known by mathematical consistency (the same way you can know 1,000,000 + 1,000,000 = 2,000,000 without having to get a million things, count them, get a million more things, count them, then put them together in a pile, and count how many things you have! You can just say this is the logical result of 1+1=2 and the rules of arithmetic).


Just my opinion, but theories in the past have been deemed correct by much smarter men than yourself.

Take for example your Mathematics examples.

You could say that 2 + 2 = 4
and that is factual, and you stand by your theory. But maybe your theory is flawed due to a '+' and its missing a 'x'.

2 x 2 = 4 could be the theory your after.

Coming and stating a theory as fact, when your theory even has the word THEORY in the title (string theory), strikes me as a bit arrogant. Whilst what you have to say is interesting, years from now, people might read this post of yours and be laughing at your dated ideas

It is a misconception that a smoker's lungs are 'full of black goo.' In an autopsy, a smoker's lungs are virtually indistinguishable from a nonsmoker's lungs.

That horrible black looking lung that was so widely advertised as being a smoker's lung was actually the lung of a coal miner.

I've gotta go for a couple hours, but, when I get back, I'll post it here, in the thread. Don't worry, I won't let it go without posting the solution - and, unlike the OP, I do know the solution.

Unless of course the OP, or someone else, figures it out in the meantime.

"I am a scientist. Specifically, I'm a theoretical physicist who specializes in high energy particle and string theory."

And you cannot even write basic English. LOL.

OK, we believe that you believe that you are a scientist. Let me guess, you've been lurking until you joined up today.

Reminds me of the earlier lurker who claims to be from the mainstream media.
Very sad and lonely attention-seekers I think.

Sorry to be negative, but we have to have some basic ground rules here, and blatent lies and trolling for attention ain't part of those. In my view.

Absolutely nothing to do with being a scientist, but since you use it as a significant portion of your daily routine...

Do you think people are "bad at math" or just simply don;t have a good foundation to understand it.

I understand how a lot of these things work, but only the principle of them..If i was asked to do a calculation for any of these i would fail miserably.

Am i "bad" at math

so first we have this fake people on the web
And then all of a sudden we have people from the media, scientist, army, etc etc etc.
I am not a conspiracy kind of guy because they tend not to believe anything.
But even I am seeing certain patterns.
Anyways, welcome and enjoy your stay


ATS - "A new Hope". Your reply and a comment last week from the site owner (no less), plus the increased quality of debunking has inspired me to think that ATS may be getting better.

Like not just swallowing any old # thrown in as a story.

This has happend over the last week or so, and is much much appreciated.
Long may it continue.

Oh wait, I forgot, you said you just decided to come on here because you're sick with the flu or something and a lil dizzy
nothin better to do. The funny thing is is yes, you do have a couple more years of school on me, but aren't we fellow scientists supposed to know that the science of today and yesterday and tomorrow is always up for change, our basic and limited knowledge and methods of supporting (yet never proving) our hypothesis' are pretty much 99.5% THEORETICAL?!, Hence the term "string THEORY."

Honestly, when my friends and I took those blue mushrooms in high-school, we found out about the string theory just from those next 4 hours, then two years later you see Michio Kaku and another scientist on the Discovery channel in which according to some has all the answers to life itself, explain what the world REALLY looks like, but truth is it took me/us 4 hours to learn (after eating a handful of blue fungus) what has I guess taken you 10+ years to figure out. So, I guess I don't have any questions for you yet about the string theory, one question I do have though is why would you think there couldn't be aliens or anything beyond what you have seen here on earth when our basic SCIENCE of today limits us from even exploring outside of our solar system, let alone the hundreds of other solar systems, let alone the universe, or the many other universes, and dimensions, and frequencies. Hell, the string theory is just a tiny, tiny piece to the limitless puzzle IMHO, it isn't the damn answer to everything or to life itself. Amazing theory yes it is, better than everyone elses, hmmmm, wouldn't say that.


Peace,
Marriah



You ARE sooo funny GIRRRL !


I have seen the stats that show that the science these days with the scientists with the HIGHEST IQs are in the Biological sciences, and by a VERY significant margin, KNOW LONGER Physics like the good ole, bad old days !!

I guess its TRUE !!!
