Big Bang, big deal.
Hoffman, Steinhardt,……….Great and encouraging stuff to read…………..
‘fundamentally untestable, and hence scientifically meaningless.’……….
Sounds like most of the establishment ‘science’ we read about in the ‘pox-vopuli’ [as some lawyers like to call it.]
e.g. I calculate the mass of a Hydrogen-Oxygen rocket to test the wild claims of some ‘special-relativists’ about the ‘Twin paradox’ using a 1Kg atomic clock system to be at least of the order of 10^146 Kg……..so absurdly large as to be laughable,,,,,,,,,,,[Someone please refute this ASAP if you can.]
[Yes; I know the clock-paradox of general relativity is accurate, and vital to rocket-science in the real world.]
P.S. john1282 pls chk yr gmail
Yesterday I could have made the biggest math typo ever………Very sorry………
The mass of H2+O2 required to accelerate a 1Kg clock from 0 to 0.25C and return, I calculate as ~ 4x 10^46Kg, NOT 10^146…….[.but still many orders of magnitude beyond the Chandrasekhar limit.]
Out by a factor of 10^100………….
I still hope someone will try the calculation, taking the heat of formation of H2O as 58 Kcal/mole……
I waited for a hail of criticism, but no luck………..
The world may well be full of apathy, but who cares…………
Lowry, i have told you–you be smart, some of us be dumb.
I don’t have the math or physics background. I know some who do, but i am not qualified to carry their briefcase.
