Well what could my Rant be about....
lets get into the mind set first
Three very bright men
Sagan,Hawking, and Clarke
(note complaint about education)
We have our brain caps on and messaged ..... good
keep this in mind as you read....
Scientific method refers to a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous
knowledge. To be termed scientific, a method of inquiry must be based on empirical and measurable evidence subject to specific principles of
reasoning. The Oxford English Dictionary says that scientific method is: "a method or procedure that has characterized natural science since the
17th century, consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses."
problem, hypothesis, experiment, observation, conclusion
which includes a very important part
Reproducibility is the degree of agreement between measurements or observations conducted on replicate specimens in different locations by different
people. Reproducibility is part of the precision of a test method.
the reproduction of scientific methods experiments to see if observed experiments and conclusions match
This is science
"Well Kent no offense, Common Sense..."
Your right except it is not Common Sense(which is rare not common) It is properly called Horse sense
At this point I have noticed one thing about several arguments.
It seems they are all after control of your thoughts...
Politics, Religion, History, and Science...ect
Behavior modification is the use of empirically demonstrated behavior change techniques to increase or decrease the frequency of behaviors, such as
altering an individual's behaviors and reactions to stimuli through positive and negative reinforcement of adaptive behavior and/or the reduction of
behavior through its extinction, punishment and/or satiation. Most behavior modification programs currently used are those based on Applied behavior
analysis (ABA), formerly known as the experimental analysis of behavior which was pioneered by B. F. Skinner.
I think the horse sense approach is required with all sides....
Check your pocket(or purse) for your wallet....make sure your money is still there...
So what metrics would you suggest...
That is the first problem... you should be developing your own Twain/Clemens skills.. As a parent this was the method I operated on.
But I do give hints....
-What are the persons qualifications?
This means checking out stories and checking out sources
what does this person gain
have they mislead me before
track record overall?
what emotions are they trying to elicit
An Extremely High Tech Civilization Definitely existed in the distant Past of our
This one caught my interest because of a history test from eighth grade.
Screw you Mrs. Bedrock
I mention this thread because you need to learn to question the motives of the historians who wrote and taught history. Do your own thinking...
A lot of evidence points IMHO in the direction of india having a much longer hstory then the british wanted to give credit
read the article and post what you think
ice-water- moon easy to read
but the thinking part
It says two thing yes ice may be on the moon
yes ice may not be on the moon
As someone else posted, it is about what space travel...blah blah blah
read the article-
(note I love using wikipedia because it pisses people off
The Higgs boson is a hypothetical elementary particle predicted by the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics. It belongs to a class of particles
known as bosons, characterized by an integer value of their spin quantum number. The Higgs field is a quantum field with a non-zero value that fills
all of space, and explains why fundamental particles such as quarks and electrons have mass. The Higgs boson is an excitation of the Higgs field above
its ground state.
Use your noggin, can you see a third reason
Mine is beginning to think funding is coming up soon... the excitement of what it could mean is real... however it is the same as when begun. They
may have found it... we will find out at this event...
you either found it or your didnt which is it... it is a carnie... step right up
Robot skin built with touch superior to humans
Researchers today published a study in Frontiers in Neurorobotics said said a specially designed robot built to mimic the human fingertip can actually
outperform a living person in identifying a wide range of materials, based on textures.
I was nice on this one and posted the info... I liked this because of what it means..
besides robot prostitutes everywhere advancing to a new level
it means prosthetic will advance a huge amount... which means american vets can afford them in about another 20 years
