What about string theory, how do we know it's the one true idea? I think that in a few years, we will find something more true. What do you think?
#2726 to #2723 - thedeadpidgeon (08/11/2014) [-]
Science doesn't deal with finding "one true idea"

Currently string theory is one possible theory dealing with the nature of the universe. There are other theories possible, but many believe string theory to be the most plausible, others believe in alternative theories. Odds are, string theory in its entirety isn't fully true, but as we find more information, and do more experiments, we will alter the idea or completely discard it for the sake of following a theory that more accurately represents the patterns we see in the observable universe.

>one true idea

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't scientists working on/searching for a theory of everything (Grand Unified Theory)? Idk much about it, but kinda sounds like what cognosceteipsum was getting at.

You could say that, but I don't think it's truth in the way cogno meant. Science doesn't really look for truth. That's philosophy's game. Science just tries to build a view of the universe that is consistent with what we observe, but because there is no way to scientifically prove what we observe is truth, all we can really get from science is limited by our perceptions. Although, you could say that because we only interact with what we perceive, scientific theory should simply be taken as truth, because it is true for the only world we'll probably ever know.

Imagine a boulder was falling from the sky. Science can tell you that if you get hit it will probably kill you, but philosophy is what tells you that waiting under it to find out would be a bad move.

Of course, the problem with philosophy is that it's pretty much subjective. The only thing that may be considered objectively true is math, and that's debatable.

Sorry for rambling and probably spouting nonsense. I'm pretty out of it today...

Explain this shit to me. I think I understand, but could someone break down for me exactly what is happening, why the water will stay in the bottle like this?    
 also, a 4K recording scaled down to 360p works out very nice. lol

How come there are so many shooters in USA?
User avatar #2694 to #2693 - Mortuus (08/07/2014) [-]
Number of people combined with the ease of access to firearms, illegally and legally.

Makes sense
User avatar #2724 to #2701 - marinepenguin (08/10/2014) [-]
Number of homicides and shootings are actually down from recent decades, media is just focusing on every shooting that happens.

h. Makes even more sense.

I'm so fucking tired of feelings. I want something rigid to put over my feelings. MATH and (some branches of) SCIENCE.. or maybe math IS a science. Fucking hell.

so....Ebola virus, want to discuss it??
User avatar #2686 to #2677 - Mortuus (08/06/2014) [-]
The odds of it spreading, outside of a third-world country is extremely low. With screening at most points of entry (excluding illegal entry), developed methods of water supply, and government agencies specifically designed to contain such things, your odds of coming into contact with the virus is quite low.

Not realyly, as you are probably pretty fucking stressed out about it and it's really not gonna do any harm if you don't go around flinging shit at people
