Vidur Kapur replied to Mark Stanbrook's discussion Time dilation at the event horizon of a black hole in the group Physicists
"Time would, essentially, slow down, but I don't think that the time dilation would be exactly infinity, and due to the gravitational pull, one must enter the black hole. It's also an interesting theory that the universe itself may be a…"

thewoodenwand replied to Mark Stanbrook's discussion Time dilation at the event horizon of a black hole in the group Physicists
"At Planck volume the mathematics cannot explain or predict what happens next, nut lets say we can. At a less than Planck volume a point in space can be only cartesian (of no size) quantum (a size that results in a unit that is measurable) or…"

Jared Lardo replied to Mark Stanbrook's discussion Time dilation at the event horizon of a black hole in the group Physicists
"Zeno's Paradox my ass. The resolution of Zeno's paradox about halving your distance and the infinite number of events that go into a finite operation (before you get there, halfway; before that, a quarter; before that, an eighth ...) is…"

Mark Stanbrook replied to MJ's discussion Evolution cannot explain existence of creationists, concedes Dawkins in the group Richard Dawkins
"Much as I said Robi. And I'm sure that if you've been espousing the same truths to people for so long as Mr. Dawkins has the temptation to be facetious when faced with the same old questions for the thousandth time musty be overwhelming!"

Mark Stanbrook commented on DieHappy's group Physicists
"Thanks Martin. I'm actually in the middle of writing up a piece for my blog on this theme. I'll cross-post it here as a discussion and we can get down to debating it!"

Mark Stanbrook replied to MJ's discussion Evolution cannot explain existence of creationists, concedes Dawkins in the group Richard Dawkins
"Dawkins himself has already argued for the evolutionary advantage of a belief system to be taken at face value and not questioned (Religion) in several places including in 'The God Delusion' so I assume he was being humorous."

Mark Stanbrook commented on DieHappy's group Physicists
"Been away for a while... getting married and other trivial stuff like that. I like your point Martin but I feel that there are certain fundamental 'measures' to the universe's existence that do not require us to describe them to…"

Mark Stanbrook replied to Doug's discussion An interesting Quantum physics observation. in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Someone below mentions Heisenberg. Your virtual particles by definition obey Heisenberg's uncertainty law that the Time they exist for multipled by the Energy required to create the particles must be less than or equal to (h)/2(pi). They must…"

Mark Stanbrook replied to Doug's discussion An interesting Quantum physics observation. in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"To expand slightly on what you have said.... probably the hardest thing in all of Physics to grasp is that a particle is not a particle, nor is it a wave. It is both and neither. Depending on how it is observed it can exhibit properties of one or…"

Mark Stanbrook replied to Doug's discussion An interesting Quantum physics observation. in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"It is entirely plausible to create an entire universe from a quantum fluctuation. However if you tried to explain this to a 'fundie' even the least intelligent among them would realise that in order to do so you have to have a context to…"

Mark Stanbrook replied to Mark Stanbrook's discussion Time dilation at the event horizon of a black hole in the group Physicists
"Sad that no one has any thoughts on this. It's very confusing!"

Caesar replied to Mark Stanbrook's discussion No idea where to discuss this... in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Your penultimate paragraph refers to agnostic beliefs. That is the difference. No atheist should have beliefs in this context. The reason that Richard Dawkins doesn't completely and utterly rule out God is that he is a scientist and he knows…"

Clarence Dember replied to Mark Stanbrook's discussion No idea where to discuss this... in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Let's help the wall flowers join the party. Their all ready here. Should be easy. It is true however that there are those who refuse to state their conviction on such matters due to dysfunctional norms in their family of origin (bad role…"

Reality Activist replied to Mark Stanbrook's discussion No idea where to discuss this... in the group ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN
"Thanks. I'm in agreement except on one point. I deal with reality not speculation. There isn't any evidence that supports the existence of god or gods. The evidence that does exist actually points away from such a conclusion. Based on what…"
