Now why would you do that OP?
Some (ok.. a lot) of people on this forum do not appreciate free thinking and creativity, however I am thankful to Einstein and Tesla, Faraday,
and.... well all of the great thinkers of our past because they were not influenced by others negativity about their work. They were steadfast.
They thought freely about the Universe and how to make their intuition be observed and computed to hold a theory in tact.
Im not agreeing the planets are in an evolutionary stage as the same, however I am not shooting you in the foot for thinking freely.
Its nice, actually.
The problem with your statement that you seem to miss entirely is the characters of note you mention; Einstein, Tesla, Faraday, or any other name of
historical significance you want to toss in there; they had EDUCATIONS.
When you (majestic plural) have the tools of understanding and learning that come with an education, when you know how the universe works (according
the current model), yes, you can play "What if ...?"
If you (majestic plural, not personal) no clue from the start, even if you just think you do out of whatever illusory fantasy typically resulting from
a lack of education, you (majestic plural, not personal) are just a child making mud pies.
The characters of note, the names like Faraday, Einstein, or Tesla played "What if ...?" based on evidence, experimentation, and the supporting
bodies of work that came before them.
They didn't just pie in the sky make arbitrary nonsense up and attempt to justify it with some magical mystery wand of Science.
