Cosmic Engineering (Relativity "Controversy" 1) by BurtJordaan on November 3rd, 2012, 8:25 am
I promised to help readers to walk the relativity and cosmology landscape, telling them where I discovered dead-ends. I will start with perhaps the biggest "controversies", those that kept me out of sleep for many nights. But, be warned, battle-hardened relativists will probably raise an eyebrow at what I have to say. To them, do not worry, I will not deviate from the mainstream, just from some dogmatic statements that have been proven untenable by reputable theorists in the field.

Relativity 'controversy' 1. “The actual one-way speed of light (in vacuum) equals the constant ‘c’ in every inertial frame of reference”. The correct interpretation of the facts is that although the two-way speed of light is an absolute constant of nature, the one-way speed of light is a convenient convention. Why? Because one has to define 'simultaneity' before you can measure speed as time over a distance.

I asked myself: Why was there such a peak in divorces in the 80's and 90's? Do people in Western Society give up too easily on marriage? Do more divorces occur because our values have changed and we accept that if we are not happy in a situation we can remove ourselves from it? Is it because it is now more acceptable to be divorced as opposed to the societal norms and values of the past where divorces were rare and frowned upon? Does religion/spirituality play a big part in keeping marriages together?

“When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I’ve got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.

Suddenly I didn’t know how to open my mo...

What is True? by blockofwood on December 29th, 2010, 11:26 pm
What is True?

What makes something true?
For something to be true, does it need to exist?
Is there anything that does not exist but is true?
Does existence mean that something is true?
Does nonexistence mean that something is not true?

a forgery of bordom vs. microwavable s'mores by Char0n on July 9th, 2014, 10:37 pm
there are sayings like "let sleeping dogs lie" or "don't look a gift-horse in the mouth" but what if that horse is named Mr. Ed and speaks to you with a snarky and sarcastic sense of humor you have to learn to wink to see in order to believe... or maybe that darn dawg is supposed to be keeping watch for unwanted visitors who would burgle your belongings in a heartbeat and fence them to a pawn in half that...
