Well I’ll be damned. It cost them 700M$ but a group of researchers finally “proved” Einstein’s general theory of relativity! They used one of NASA’s satellites to prove that an object such as a planet does indeed distort the fabric of space and time.
Well…to be fair, they didn’t really “prove” his theory, they just found very strong evidence that supports it. It’s kind of like that movie, Proof. There’s a difference between evidence and proof. Watch the movie.
This absolutely does not prove relativity. A theory is a collection of statements used to make predictions and describe a phenomenon. If at any time a theory’s prediction is wrong, and it cannot be adapted to be correct, it ceases to be a theory.
However, this is definitely a strong +1 for relativity. Let us not forget the overwhelming evidence for subjects like gravity, which has not been proven, and is “just” a theory. And of course by saying something is “just” a scientific theory basically means it so far has always made the accurate prediction.
In science? I don’t think there is a specific point. Until one observation or another says otherwise? You cannot absolutely prove scientific theories. Somewhere in the universe space time may distort backwards, therefore making gravity have things fall up instead of down. Who knows?
there has been such evidence quite some time ago when the first GPS-satelites were installed. they had a switch in their software that would include the relativity correction-calculations if the system really showed the (big!!) inaccuracies that were predicted for the GPS-system if the theory was correct in this aspect
I’m sure you also have a good explanation why the likes of Nikola Tesla, Da Vinci, Einstein (i.e those who actually provided for technological-socio-cultural leaps) etc. were you-know-what (so you won’t get upset) … Btw. Einstein also did quite some lectures on subjects not really well-received by political authorities. You can mine those just like you pasted the “primate” article. Some clues here:
The source you posted is biased and not-credible. Michael Bluejay (the writer of the article you posted) has absolutely no educational background in the field of biology. Take a look at his “achievements” http://michaelbluejay.com/michael/
You’re starting to hijack the thread, but - in case you seek for the evidence: the evidence is embedded in the quote you’ve just made. Correlation, right?
Btw. how is material I provided “biased” versus material emanating from “meateating” campus. Is there any logic in that? I’m pretty sure that ivu site caters for most of historical data needed to draw any correlations.
So, I’ll restrain from posting any further info here, as well as answering any provocations, this is becoming increasingly off-topic and anyone with some sort of intelligence can foresee what’s coming. And, most of it can be answered with -links- I already provided. Both official and un-official.
Btw. Einstein himself explained influence and benefits of vegetarian diet. I believe this can be found on internet, too. This explains my first post, before anybody else attacks that.
