Does nature impose limits on what we can know? But why?

Well, if a theory of information underlies the universe, then intelligence must also, not? more

Free will creates quantum physics, and not the other way around?

Physicist Antoine Suarez: It is not that free will follows from quantum physics but rather the other way around: quantum physics follows from free will. more

New theory on quantum physics emphasizes nonlocality

“The strange thing is that the action happens instantly, with no time for light or an electromagnetic signal or radio signal to communicate between the two,” Hobson said. “It is a single object that is behaving as a single object but it is in two different places. It doesn’t matter what the distance is between them. more

Apparently, a wormhole is our best bet for a time machine

From LiveScience: “Time machines are unavoidable in our physical dimensional space-time,” David wrote in his paper. “Traversable wormholes imply time machines, and [the prediction of wormholes] spawned a number of follow-on research efforts on time machines.” more

Scientific research which YECs and the mainstream can do for the benefit of society

YECs are very interested in mechanism of accelerated nuclear decay. Ironically, so is the mainstream in order to find better methods of dealing with nuclear waste instead of burying it underground (or worse putting it in containers and tossing it in the sea). Here is a breaking development published in a peer-reviewed article in 2013: […] more

Admitting significant errors in my understanding of physics — speed of light theories

I had advocated Barry Setterfield’s decaying speed of light model as a possible mechanism for seeing distant starlight on shorter time scales than billions of years. At this time I need to appraise those who have followed my defense of Barry’s theory, that I no longer think Setterfield’s versions of the c-decay are workable as […] more

Vodka! Can nuclear structure be affected by electrical, chemical, mechanical and biological means?

The answer appears to be yes (at least for electrical and mechanical means, don’t know for sure about chemical and biological means). A physics professor assigned our class term papers of our choosing. Our goal was to learn something new. I chose to explore the effects of electricity and chemistry on nuclear processes. I thought […] more

Vodka! the return of the Aether (some help perhaps for YECs)

There is some benefit to ID if even parts of the YEC hypothesis are confirmed, the most notable example right now is Sanford and Cos work which was presented at the Cornell Conference. In a previous thread, I discussed the distant starlight problem is a thorn in the side of YEC. [the Vodka designation means […] more

New biography of maverick Nicola Tesla

The one we quoted recently on non-physical phenomena. David Bowie played him in a film. more

“Black holes do not exist”

That was the shocking headline in 2005 in prestigious scientific journal Nature: Black holes are staples of science fiction and many think astronomers have observed them indirectly. But according to a physicist at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California, these awesome breaches in space-time do not and indeed cannot exist. … Black holes are […] more

Distant Starlight, the thorn in the side of YEC — can there be a middle ground?

There are many devout Jews and Christians who believe the universe is old. Unlike Darwinism, the presumption of an old universe has real support from science. Philosophically, something as grand and as powerful as the entire universe would reasonably seem to be eternal. Standard thermodynamics and the Big Bang hypothesis changed all that, and the […] more

Protons smaller than formerly believed?

Used to be “unthinkable” to question the measurement, apparently. more

Coffee!! The physicist’s spherical cow

It’s good enough for practical purposes in physics, not in dairy farming. more

“One need not even be a theist to think physics is not going to replace metaphysics.”

Nobody has yet described how matter and energy make the ideas in dreams. more

Tell your boss this one: “Space and time are different for me. YOU gotta adjust”

Can we draw that conclusion from an interesting recent study on elementary particles? more

Cocktails! Astrophysics vs. Darwinist Paleontology

How can there be life, much less a Cambrian explosion, if the early Earth was an ice ball. Astrophysics tells us the Earth should be an ice ball, but why isn’t it? Astrophysics tells us that relative to today, the sun radiated 30% less energy in the time of the Early earth and 6% less […] more

What physicists still don’t know about the Higgs boson

At least they do know it exists. That’s a start. But why is it so light? more

The hole of the SLoT

evo

Definition of the 2nd law of thermodynamics (SLoT). This law (in its statistical mechanics sense) states that an isolated system goes towards its more probable states (those more numerous). Since the disordered states are countless, while the ordered/organized ones are few, a closed system spontaneously goes towards disorder/disorganization (related to entropy). Difference between order and […] more

Stolen Concepts: All Materialist Arguments Are Self-Refuting

The stolen concept fallacy is a form of self-refutation. From Wikipedia: Stolen Concept – the act of using a concept while ignoring, contradicting or denying the validity of the concepts on which it logically and genetically depends. In an ongoing, multi-thread sub-debate at The Skeptical Zone, I have been making the case that when materialists […] more

Can it exist, by definition? more
