And the thinking from the same supposed law that only physical mass can act on the physical world, we propose that gravity has physical prescense. The guys theory seems alittle far fetched when one supposes SR and GR to be true, and I think he deserves a lot of credit for trying to make sense out o...

IS a radio transmission really the same as visible light emenated from a supernova? I know that visible light is on the chart of electro magnetic waves, but then what of a photon? Does a radio signal actually behave the same in all the clever tests men have devised to learn about light? There are o...

I read most of the rest of the article... No one has yet proved that light can gravitate, regardless of how many descriptions say that it does. Beliefs, regardless of how many believers, do not equal proofs. My understanding is that light can in fact bend spacetime, which is ultimately the creation ...

My underlying point is that I don't understand about light. Fair enough, and neither do any scientists, really. Until they can explain the reasons behind Quantum Phsyics. My question now becomes what if you observe it through the frame of reference of infinity? ... I would ask if we turn on a flash...

I again ask what makes the equating of each band to a six month period of time highly plausible? Simply because the recent history of bands which can be compared to recorded weather and seasons show this behaviour. If the past 30 years makes 30 new layers in the ice despite there having been many s...

I only read through the first part of his lengthy discussion, but I'm not really sure what conclusions can be drawn from this. In essense he's saying that 'light' as we know it does not exist and that the concept of light being a physical entity is not relevant. Well, to some extent it's quite true;...

It appears that you have accepted as fact that each line in the ice represents a six month period of time. What evidence do you use to make the decision to recognize that as fact? Someone supposing they are drilling into ancient ice and counting lines? Popular acceptance? Some nameless scientist th...

I am sure the high and mighty and the smartest, wisest and most enlightened beings in this world can take us by the hand and lead us into a realization of "truth". Problem is there is a great abundance of plausible and reasonable sounding explantions and conclusions, that we simply have no way to v...

Could you please demonstrate how we know each layer of compressed snow indicates a six month period of time? Apparently each snow event will become compressed. Please include these variables in your demonstration of the validity of your claims. Water content and amount of snow in a particular storm...

In general I must say that I find your whole attitude quite distastefull and warranting only a terse response in-kind, rather than a thoughtful discussion of the complexities at play. As such.. False, I have looked at it, and there is nothing at all to the dating, save assumptions of a same past. 60...

For YEC's, I think there are two main areas to focus on. The first is the cosmoligical timescale which estimates an approximately 13-15 Billion year-old universe, based on the distance to the stars, etc. (Personally I think the 13 Billion conclusion is a little weak and will need revision as new gen...

My Grandmother

I haven't been on much lately, as I've been so busy - in large part due to my Grandmother's illness. She has Dementia (going crazy over time) and has recently stopped eating and mostly stopped drinking. As it is, barring a miracle she has only a few weeks to live at the most. It's funny because ther...

As a rule I make it a point to be informed about our world, its history, and the dynamics at play throughout various regions. I gotta admit though, I know almost nothing about the Middle East. I thought Isreal gave back the land in the whole Gaza withdrawal. Was that only a small part of it? And isn...
