I think the most mind boggling of them all is size. There is no law that states a sun, planet, moon, comet so on and so forth must fit within some certain size. In fact science is discovering more and more things of almost unimaginable size out there in the universe. So if all sizes exist, what that hints at is beyond the imagination of most. In other words what if you found out that the milky way was like one tiny dot inside of a planet that was what you might imagine as the size of a billion galaxies, its not impossible is the point. All sizes leaves a very large gap of possibilities open in relation to the universe. For all we know the tiny part of the universe that we imagine we are within, is just a dot inside of some unimaginable large body of water on some unimaginable large planet. Or how about this one, given all sizes exist that could just as easily mean our galaxy is very small compared to some other galaxy out there that may be billions of times larger. Which means the life on that large planet in that large galaxy would be to big to even get in its space ship and visit our galaxy. Because its spaceship alone would be bigger then our galaxy. And this is just some of the more simpler possibilities relating to size in the universe since all sizes exist within the universe.
This , They should've known !
Gas bonding ! It's only
Grade school science .
If GAS BONDING is a fact , gravity is not !
All downward falling motion including Newton's apple begins when rising gas molecules becomes trapped gas molecules , known as gas bonding , which takes on a state of solid mass , blocking out it's electrons motion , it's fire power , thus becomes energy lock lifeless gas molecules , and falls downward in real time , following its electrons unlimited potential velocity at the speed of light , connecting with the earth energy conservation system establishing a downward falling path for trapped lifeless gas molecules / solid objects only .
Equating the above fact with the physical universe same as Einstein e = mc2 equates to the physical universe .
E = Energy = MM = Molecule Motion = Molecules in motion within star flames earth gases birds and balloons plains and rockets , even us humans rise from molecules in motion creating an energy flow , the ruling force o f the universe .
M = Mass = GB = Gas Bonding = Gas Bonding takes on a state of solid mass .
C2 = Light Speed = E = Electrons = Electrons unlimited potential velocity at the speed of light connects with the earth energy conservation system , establishing a downward falling path for trapped lifeless gas molecules / solid objects only .
I think it’s more of a personal decision on whether or not to understand those things that were just described. Maybe even open minded enough. I personally use ratios to put things into perspective for any audience willing to listen.
Аny point moves along the path of least resistance through time
This is the first law of the universe.
this is how people go through their live.
this is how a leaf from a tree falls.
that's why brain cells and the universe are so similar
this unites them
so easy but no one told me this
there might be other theories, but the idea that humans originated from africa has such a huge amount of empirical evidence that it is essentially fact. Calling something a "theory" doesnt disprove it in any sense whatsoever. And just because there are people who say differently doesn't make it any less either. In history classes and literature it is belivied that humans came out of Africa. Why? Because its pretty much factual at this point.
extraterrestrial16 no idiots it’s not a theory, it’s literally a fact that the first humans originated in Africa. Eliminate racial concerns from how you perceive history and maybe you won’t have so a hard time conceiving that.
ShenolX he is but he dont want to be called on group and he said there is no evidence for all powerfull omniscient etc cause he see suffering so it contradicts god characteristics and also he step to you if you put religion in science class lol and dont say free will because contradiction so hes an agnostic atheist but he just didnt really want to be called in group
I disagree. I think the thing people totally misunderstand about the universe is that time passes at different rates depending on where you are. Every sci-fi flick pretends that people can fly to different worlds and galaxies and share the same reference frame for time. That's nonsense. Even if I can "warp" to another planet instantaneously, I am subject to time in that reference frame. If the planet is very massive, just being in its orbit for a day could result in many years passing on earth. Can you imagine a "federation" with thousands of planets? All with difference frames of reference with respect to time?
I am pretty sure that there is a small likelihood that people really need this education from NDT will actually watch this video. But if he can pique the interest of the small minority That do arrive here, then he’s made the world a much better place.
Neil , there's need for the explanations for the misconceptions.
There's the misconception of the big bang.
A thesis that defies all known scientific laws , but is still discussed as though it's
And yet , we know (science) that it's scientifically impossible.
We'll ( science) discuss how we understand everything down to the trillionth of a trillionth
of a second , but nothing before that.
But if you question the thesis based on the same scientific calculations that brings us to
the trillionth of trillionth of a second , then you reject science.
So basically all these calculations which are basis of the laws of physics apply only
when we can apply them to our (science) own prognosis.
When you apply these same laws to the possibility of of the Big Bang ever happening , it
creates a real conundrum in that it proves the scientific impossibility of this ever happening 10 times over.
Not to worry , science has come up with many more misconceptions such as the multiverse
and string theory in response to the impossibility of the origins of the universe.
Then we have the more recent findings of the Plank Telescope showing the Universe to be
the same temperature in every direction which is impossible if the universe is the same age.
Then we have the problem of all the missing matter that the Hadron Collider was going to find.
Although we could look at the one of your other speculations that were living in a
computer simulation which really would eliminate the need of knowing anything.
It's wonderful to have a Science Icon such as yourself clearing up all these misconceptions.
I watched it. It disproved nothing. He failed to include other theories of a singular universe. You're trying to convert me to your religion; it's obvious. If I showed a weakening in my support of science, you would try to start my conversion. Nice try, bud. Evolution is one of the strongest theories out there. You might bring up why there are so many rapid expansions; it has to be God. Well surprise, it's punctuated equilibrium through adaptive radiation. Also, you can't call a theory speculation; that's reserved for hypothesizes.
Your wrong in that people have been trying to disprove evolution for
a long time. It's hard to disprove speculation .
The scientific evidence supports very little of the evolutionary theory.
If you think much of the evolution theory has scientific merit that
it's presented as , your greatly mistaken.
Here's a link to a Ted Talk from a physicists from the Hadron Collider which will take 15 minutes of your time.
Very interesting presentation from an evolutionist.
I was genuinely considering looking at your sources, but then one was 44 minutes long, and I don't have the time for that. People have been trying to disprove evolution for a while, same with the Big Bang, but they've never been taken seriously. Why? Because their arguments were invalid. I would understand your point if you argued that the theories need to be revised, but you're just the standard "God created everything" guy that everyone shrugs off.
I think if you take a look at scientific evidence against a lot of these
hypothesis and theories that there's certainly much more evidence
against them then for them.
There's an excellent video made by a physicist that has been
involved with Hadron Collider since it's startup.
This was the largest and most expensive science endeavor in
This was going to help prove at least one of the many theories
associated with the origins of the universe.
But , instead they found only the Higgs Bosom which accounts
for something like 100th of 1 percent of all the missing matter
that has to exist for any of their theories to have any semblance of
merit. This seems to be the norm in almost all the fields of science
where it's associated origins and evolution.
There's also a large group of scientists that realize
evolutionary science lacks whats required to form life.
Obviously. But I'm just thinking out loud here. I'm not saying it happened, only that we as scientists can't say they didn't, simply because they go against what we can or cannot understand... Because that's the whole point. It's supposed to be impossible.
Great and inspiring educator this guy is. However, I have a small remark to his water molecules example (he sometimes mentions air molecules as well) and I will quote it from book called Guesstimation. The question asked is: "How many molecules of Alexander the Great's last breath do you inhale with each breath?". After some back-of-the-envelope calculations, they get the answer of 8 molecules. However, they make a remark which was never made by Tyson: "Alas, we know from quantum mechanics and thermodynamics that all oxygen molecules are alike and cannot be tagged like classical macroscopic particles. Thus, this question is ultimately meaningless. The following analogy can be helpful. If you pay for a $20 purchase with a $20 bill and then six months later we give you $20 (for being such a loyal reader) then there is a chance that the same bill returned to you (since each has a unique serial number). If, however, you pay for your purchase with a credit card and then six months later we transfer $20 to your bank account, it is completely meaningless to ask whether it is the same
bill. However, it is still fascinating to know that are about as many molecules in one breath as there are breaths in the atmosphere."
That's not a good analogy, because the $20 credit/transfer in the second example is not a real thing, i.e., not a physical object. But molecules ARE physical objects, so even if all oxygen molecules are alike and can't be "tagged", it is still possible to say that a certain number of molecules that passed through Alexander the Great's lungs are passing through your lungs right now.
Nathan No, there's an underyling denial of the man himself going around as well, which i see as a waste of time. There is no proof that anyone can show that he performed miracles, all we have are stories. And the same goes for the story of a man named Jesus who claimed he was God or godlike.
But as to the question of whether a man existed during that time, named Jesus, who claimed he was a deity, is not really that important. People have done that throughout history, a million times over. So what? There was probably a man named George who lived 50 years ago who claimed he was a wizard, so what?
I'm saying don't spend time debating THAT, as many people do. Spend time debating the ideas in the Bible, whether they are moral or not, or the evidence or lack of evidence of a God, or many other things. The Bible shapes many people's beliefs, decisions, way of life, even legislation. So the ideas and philosophy of the Bible are real, even if Jesus wasn't real, so it's a moot point whether he was real.
tazz250 It seems like you don't understand these discussions. The discussions are not simply about a random man who is called Jesus, but about Jesus from the bible, who allegedly performed miracles and rose from the dead. So these discussions are about what he did.
michaelgorby I’ll repost this link too. It really points a big finger at big names in a way where you have to ask if we are intentionally being misled. If people want jump to the conclusion that it’s crazy to think we are being bullshitted then as far as I’m concerned they lack critical thinking. https://youtu.be/nXF098w48fo
michaelgorby I have to say you’re kind of repeating some silly stuff such as conspiracy and gps. It seems obvious to me that physics lost the plot awhile ago. How much of that was intentional is hard to say. But there’s a difference between doing math and understanding what’s going on. All the math that is currently used can be applied to the Electric Universe Theory without the need for creating undetectable particles, dimensions, singularities and what not. For me you have to be passed open minded to accept Big Bang, Blackholes, Spacetime etc. It’s in the realm of sci-fi as far as I can tell.
Enter the Braggn' I've been hearing about the Electric Universe hypotheses recently and it just sounds like another conspiracy theory to me.
We have tons of technologies that would simply not work if Relativity was BS (for example, GPS Navigation). Relativity apparently breaks down around singularities, such as horizons of black holes, or at the instant of the Big Bang, but that just means the Theory is incomplete or insufficient to explain everything. It does not mean it's BS.
But I'm open-minded when it comes to new discoveries about nature, so I'll start taking the Electric Universe seriously when I see reputable scientific journals publish about it, nobel prizes given out, or simply hear legitimate experts in the field who actually understand this stuff on a deeper start taking it seriously.
I got a visceral sense of what a billion years felt like while walking around Enchanted Rock in Texas. Enchanted Rock is one of a group of seven pluton granite batholiths, or intrusions of rising magma which cooled and were later exposed by surrounding land erosion. As a young man I visited this place often and was always struck by the incredible beauty of it, although I only recently learned that the domes were formed a billion years ago - nearly twice the vast length of time between our present day and the Cambrian Explosion when complex, multi-celled animals like trilobites first appeared on earth. A humbling experience.
whole modern science exist bcz Einstein proved his theory of relativity and according to that ..YES time does exist. and he proved that it's a 4th dimension.
so far no one came up with a theory to question that so.....
OK, I think I understand what you're saying - but the strong point of science is that it is "peer reviewed" and gradually closes in on the truth. Of course, sometimes it takes a paradigm shift, like plate tectonics.
+bucksy99 The Romans have records of him (the real man, not the pretend magic version in the sky), in documents that have proved to be truthful in every other respect. If you're going to put your foot down about something, at least be right. Next you will say Julius Ceasar never existed either, because no one found his tomb.
PhaeL N. R. - I agree, god is real depending on how you define the word god. For example, for many years humanity was right about god being the sun, it was simple, it gives us light and allows us to live. Now scientists think there are 10 or 11 dimensions and we as 4 dimensional beings can only understand 3 physical dimensions and time, imagine a being that is aware of all 11 dimensions, what would you call that? god? it is what you decide to call it
there are roman documents about a man named Isa in the current Israeli territory, that was before the romanization of the christian cult, yes you can't be 100% sure it's true but a little logic can tell you there's a chance there was a man there that later on was used to manufacture the religion, you know there are archeologists studying these subjects, this just doesn't comes out of someone's ass, the same happens when they study pharaohs and ancient egypt, their studies lead to certain evidence that something happen or someone existed, you can't just claim pharaohs never existed just because you never got to meet them in person
I think he should definitely start insulting people who don't have a luxury to think their whole day about the space and time. You know that 99% of people who have a real job and families. He is the single most annoying "educator" in the whole history. Such an utter failure when it comes to really promoting science and not guilt shaming people who lack formal education. A total moron.
verapamil07 also he loves the film Martian, and interstellar is a film literally based on the limits of what we know *could* happen. It discusses going into a fourth dimension, which is unlikely to be possible. He likely just pointed out that the plot of the film is unlikely, doesn’t mean he suggested that people couldn’t I enjoy it. Also on religion, I’m pretty sure he feels strongly about people spreading creationist belief everywhere without evidence, and I for one agree that saying your blind and unsupported opinion instead of as fact is stupid and people like Tyson should stand up against it. He never directly targeted to the population for having said belief.
