I bet when we are done...I mean when universe is

all of them broken or modyfied....
You cant do that, you cant do this, bla bla bla...
Arrogant turdheads....Think they no all...
The laws of physics are our best interpretation of the natural laws we see around us. Unless you believe every single particle in the universe is
directly and constantly controlled by god, then there needs to be natural laws which dictate the way materials and forces interact with each other.
If you stand on a cliff and drop a rock, that rock will fall down the cliff. You can do it a million times, and it will likely fall down that cliff
every time. Sure, some wise guy might put a trampoline at the bottom, or there might be a huge gust of a wind that catches the rock and sends it
flying off course, but if we need to build some sort of technology around dropping rocks off cliffs, we use the most likely law we see which is "rocks
dropping off cliffs always fall down" That's just a loose comparison but I hope you get where I'm going with it.
We cannot simply say "we have no idea" because number one, that's not true, we do have some idea of how the world around us works. And second of all,
it's not helpful at all to say "we have no idea"
The computer you were on while making your message exists because scientists understand the world around them enough to turn a bunch of random
materials into something that does everything your computer does. Then we need scientists that know enough about the world around them to make the
internet function across the globe. We need scientists that know enough about the world to lay cables across the ocean flood. We need scientists to
put satellites into space, we need scientists to make sure this whole network works most of the time.
If scientists were as ignorant as you say none of the things we take for granted like running water, electricity, TVs, computers, cell phones, modern
clothes, modern food, devices to cook that food, medical services keeping you alive, none of these things would work.
Those things can only work if someone says "I know how the world works, and I can manipulate it to do something I want it to do" which is what you
seem to be rallying against (along with tons of other science haters here on ATS)
If people just said "well this is my idea but it's probably wrong. And I have no idea how any of this works" NOTHING would get built, nothing would
get done, nothing would work.
Scientists never say they know everything. Scientists never say they can't be wrong. The whole profession of being a scientist is to continually learn
and expand your knowledge base. They love being wrong and proving each other wrong, because it's an opportunity to learn.
It's great to have alternative, new ideas. To challenge common scientific ideas. But you have to back it up with something. If I tell you I know how
electricity works, and prove it by controlling electricity and making various things that use and produce it, I think that's pretty good evidence
that I understand how electricity works.
Where as, if someone posts here on ATS how science is completely wrong about how electricity works, but has nothing to back it up, they have to accept
that the guy who's job to work with electricity might know a bit more than them.
It seems you really have no idea what a scientists is or does, what the sciences in general are, or how they effect our lives on a daily basis.
Because if you did, you'd understand how ridiculous your post sounded.
