Re: The finger

Still got issues lol! No, I'm alright. Day to day, you know? I was worried about you when I hadn't seen you post in a while. Glad you're alright. I suppose I'm getting too complacent about internet forums, I just don't find as much to get excited about and others are saying what I would say anyhow.

...is unfortunately closed.

You can look at it but you can't sit on it.

Too bad, cuz I really liked that place.
So the dark side is closed, I would look in on occasion but there was little activity and then Liberty.grl closed it.

I have to say that the Brits don't stick their fingers up their ass. With their head stuck up their backside so much, there is no room for fingers.
Lol! Doc, how are you? I was going to send out a search party to your couch.
I'm good, how's my favorite Dalek?

Re: Is our universe Euclidean?

Euclidean geometry is a description of the Universe based on the observations that have been made. Math is descriptive rather than prescriptive. Math describes what is, math doesn't say how the Universe should be.

Re: Is science being divided?

Acceptance of Darwin's theory of evolution is a scientific fact, look it up if you need evidence and will accept it. Darwinism is BS made up by deniers to deny the evidence. Science is not divided as far as the theory of evolution, it is a scientific fact, the only argument is about the mechanism.

Re: What age are we in?

How about the "Age of Stupidity", I can't believe that so many stupid people were in charge. So, the Trump age? Trump is only the most recent in a long line of the 'best of the worst', I'd rather have Trump in charge than Killiry. I have often said that an election is choosing the best of the worst...

Re: What age are we in?

500 years from now, in the year 2518, what do you think they will call our age? The 19th to the 21st century (give or take)? The electric age? The technological age? The computer age? The nuclear age? Or will they extend the medieval age to the 21st? How about the "Age of Stupidity", I can't believ...

Re: What happens at the exact center?

From a physical perspective, it does not make sense of course, but the mathematical concept is crystal clear. I agree that as a mathematical concept it is true, but that doesn't make it true for a physical perspective. There is no such thing as a dimensionless point in the physical world, only in m...

Re: What happens at the exact center?

Why do you say the exact center point is rotating? Movement means changing your location over time (r x t = d). Since I contend the exact center isn't moving, then its orientation remains the same. 🇺🇸PhilX🇺🇸 The center point is changing it's orientation 360 degrees with each rotation of the record....

Re: What happens at the exact center?

The center point might not be moving relative to the rest of the record but it is still rotating which is a kind of movement. How do you define movement, is it always changing your location in space, or can it be just changing your orientation in the same location? Why do you say the exact center p...
