quote: It's hard to imagine... the world without airplanes, cell phones, computers, etc. Yet it wasn't very long ago that all of these things were impossible.
quote: Einstein's theories seem as flawed as any.
quote: Math itself seems to fail whenever it tries to calculate the infinite and incalculable. Yet it tries to be the language in which we understand the laws of the infinite universe.
quote: Before math, we used philosophy.
quote: As time has passed, I have almost begun to lose that faith... is it too much to hope that maybe this will indeed begin the space race? Will it be enough to end our chemical dependence?
quote: Oh, it's fine. I'm not offended. When science has finished calculating pi, let me know. When calculators can figure out the answer to 1/0, I'll also be equally impressed.
quote: I could explain the flaws in some of Einstein's theories, but it's unlikely you would understand if I told you. It would probably go over your head. So, if you don't mind, I'll save my breath.
quote: Philosophy has and still guides the fringes of science today. Aristotle is the father of science, and his teacher was Plato, the famous philosopher. The famous minds of today are trying to use physics to answer the major metaphysics questions which were being thought about by Socrates himself.
quote: It took two bicycle mechanics to prove that flight was possible in the face of overwhelming scientific evidence that doing such a thing was impossible. It wasn't long ago, either, when scientists suggested it was impossible to surpass the speed of sound. Just read a little science history and you'll see where those comments came from.

quote: Now, they have a working model which proves that it works. What else do you want?
quote: If Newton's scientific laws are being broken by the device, then it becomes clear that those laws were man made, and had nothing to do with the laws of the universe.
quote: Name one person in the legitimate scientific community within the last 150 years that said these things were impossible. Hell, within the last 200 years! It's the very, very often wrong "common wisdom" that perpetuates these myths and way too many believe them even when the science community says they are pure BS.
