Science is more confusing that any other subject, topic or debate ever known.
I used to be an avid reader of Universe Today at http://www.universetoday.com About a while ago (around 1/3/09 ish) they published an article about the current scientific thinking on the possibilities of a Star Trek ‘warp-drive’ according to this article wapring spacetime is a ludercrus possibility. Physics does not allow that sort of thing to happen (chuckle, chuckle) it’s all fantasy, as physicists we can say that without ‘warp speed’ is not a possibility.
I was looking at an article today on space.com http://www.space.com/businesstechnology/090506-tw-warp-drive.html That specifically states that warp drive is not impossible.
Could a rational scientists please explain to me that as scientists (dealing in absolutes) that one group sais yes, another says no, another says maybe. Some people know what they’re talking about, others just say they do. They all think they have the correct answers and yet opinions couldn’t be more opposed.
Let’s face it. Science has brought us man, many benefits, but if they were honest they would just say ‘we don’t know’ or ‘is an interesting possibility, but as of yet we have no idea how to do it, or if it’s even possible.’
Scientists really can be quite confused. How long will it take them to realise that there really are very few absolutes. I think they should stop being so smug and start being more honest, more open minded, and a lot less intollerant of people who have more faith in God that their stupid measuring sticks.
