Why are so many anti science? This includes anti GMO, anti vaccine, anti evolution, and believing in woo. (Page 4)
AretoNyx: There is a thing is there is a logical fallacy there. I mention logical fallacy to only present how reasoning may result or claims understood if understandable.
("I can't explain it" becomes "It can't be explained" becomes "It has been explained; the gods did it" — or more succinctly — "I don't know, therefore I do know".
A didit fallacy is an informal fallacy that occurs when a complex problem is handwaved away by invoking (without reason) the intervention of some powerful entity.
Something happened, I'm not sure why.
X did it!
It's that simple." )
It may not be seen as simple exactly but one guessing what fits the gaps as an answer without actually knowing does not lead to much helpful in reality likely.
AretoNyx: The walls often are made with particles too. It isn't things disappear through walls and no longer exist.
lori100: particles are energy...and the wall is made of energy atoms.....so it isn't really solid, but energy.....that's how...
lori100: “Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.”
― Albert Einstein ---------------------- “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
― Nikola Tesla
There is info on how particles work in experiments.
AretoNyx: Albert Einstein and Nicola Telsa would not be able to test many things as we can now. They did not had the tools such as colliders that can test particles.
There are things to still test , and people learn all the time more it seems.
lori100: mystics knew for centuries that the physical world is not solid...that it is an illusion...and time also...
AretoNyx: Energy is not defined as illusion, atoms, or particles based in understanding sciences. You may have subjective definition , but if wanting to communicate where things are understood in describing such things as energy based in science there is ways to look on dictionary to make such testable.
lori100: if it passes through a seemingly solid wall the wall really isn't solid...it only seems to be ...
AretoNyx: Yes it is solid , yes there are liquids, and yes there are gasses...and other ways matter has descriptions. Swiss cheese has holes but it is solid by definition.
AretoNyx: I am sure they knew Swiss cheese existed and had holes likely ... though never seem them say it all was an illusion.
AretoNyx: In your views of illusion you could say Bohr, Einstein, and Telsa never existed...and do not exist.
