So there is a body of thought that thinks Nick posts freely without regard to scientific evidence or principled stands on logic. This may be due to the brief notes written by Nick without any scientific evidence or logical exposition.
There is no evidence eh? Who gave you your intellect? A monkey?
not even pupa... You gotta come up with something better than that!
Why GR of course! Where time stops things are falling at light speed. Its as simple as that van.
Light has its own clock.
It has the fastest clock.
Gravity might do it. If there are singularities.
Some people won't be justified until they are doing something wrong. Such are these scientists. There are other ways of getting these stem cells you know.
Adult stem cells will do the job. There also are umbilical stem cells to work with.
No its the liberals that are the enemy. Muslims and dictators are liberals. They are always the ruling class of mob mentality.
Physicists are not God? They are not even believable.
This is relativity refined. Einstein simply went too far with his principle. This is symptomatic of being one of the first in a young science.
Relativity is based on the Lorenzt contraction of time(and space) But it only works one way. Only one clock can go slower than the other.Its as simple as that.
There is a starting point for any system. Take time for example. If it can slow down it must have a starting point to slow down from; a kind of fastest time. Einstein wasn't willing to talk about it. He had too much invested in Relativity.
The quality of every one of these quotes would have been improved with both scientific evidence and a chain of logic. In many cases, it's not even possible to figure out which chain of reasoning and what evidence Nick would rely upon to come to believe these statements.
That being said, Pupamancur's posts are also of low quality, as judged by these creteria. Both have high warning levels, so in some sense they must share a quality.

Many thanks to rpenner for his appeal to integrity. This is a truly wonderful forum and if we do not seek to give of our best then we fail both ourselves and the forum as a whole.
I volunteer for a warning for including this line in a post ..
.. let's not go there..
I failed there.
Politeness and physics is all that is required.
Nice one rp.

Go look at your sheepskins.

Er.. as events have unfolded since my last post maybe that should be two warnings.

Can someone here delete the account of "Comdraz23" (my account)? Where can I go and contact an admin?
7th September 2006 - 12:57 AM
You can PM: admin, ap-bot or neutron. They are all admin.

This is fallout from the Pupamancur-Nick fight on thetime dialation thread?
It seems yes, beause the Popa has increased its warning level, too..

In fairness to Nick,
I believe his enthusiasm is genuine and his lack of understanding is genuine. He is not malicious and I do not believe anyone could claim to be seriously offended by anything he posts.
If you are looking for a problem on this forum .. I think you've got the wrong guy.

I have to agree with Confused2. Nick is a little over enthusiastic at times but all of his posts I have read seem to be OK. In any debate there can be strong disagreements. If we all agreed, the message board would be dry as dust.

DiamondJim. I have to disagree with you. I gave Nick negative feedback recently because of a post of his where he made an empty statement against global warming, as he has done against black holes and in support of (unproven) hyperspheres, etc. He was always a little shy on evidence to back up his beliefs.
