Pardon my laughter; I just got an email full of emotion that I will keep for a while.
Pardon the "go to hell" comment, I guess I was a little emotional too, no one's perfect.
I took all the Physics sequences in college, which included Einstein’s general Theory of Relativity (I got a B-), that is what it is: a theory, not a law, which means it can be refuted, get it?
: Look pretty boy, I never said I was a God, I never asked you specifically to listen to me and you didn't have to respond either. The joke is on you.
: "They're thought to be true, that doesn't mean they are"
-- in which the same thing goes for the speed of light limit.
: If I "...sound like a complete idiot...
" to you
, how is that your problem? It isn’t mine cuz I don't care.
When I said, "Don't treat science like it is a religion!
“ I didn't imply that the opposite is or isn't true (if you thought that way, then it means you had something else on your mind). I was talking about the first paragraph's piece, "I think this is just about the stupidest thing ever when people believe scientists so much that they act like they speak the worldly truth. "
People act like "this is it, it ends here, we can't get better than this" and anyone who comes up with theories/ideas that speak of an "otherwise" are shunned. Hello? How did these people with their knowledge come to be in the first place? By being different, thinking out of the box, how is this wrong? It is not as if I am questioning the existence of God here, we are all people that means we have limitations and we cannot come up with everything.
Bear in mind that all the math around Einstein’s theories are base around NOT passing the speed of light in a single reference frame. This is true, but that does not mean the reference frame itself cannot move, and then there is no limit to your velocity. A factor of either the inverse of or the square root of (1-c2
) is what generates most of the equations we are familiar with; as you can see it is based around light. The math obviously will only work as long as you are below light.
I believe that another intelligent life form has been to this planet and thinking otherwise is extremely self-centered and arrogant/ignorant and atheistic, as if we are the only ones capable of thinking the way we do.
Realistically, they are simply not nearby; they are far, very far, we are talking hundreds of light-years at the very least; plus they are still able to get here with their lifetimes. Do you know how fast you have to be moving to cover that kind of distance? It is certainly greater than one. (Unless NASA found a wormhole and will not tell us about it, maybe that is what happened to our two last Mars missions, huh?
Look, ever since the dawn of the nuclear age, we on earth have had our fair share of UFO incidents. Coincidence? No, fusion happens naturally, supernovas, Black Holes, etc; but fission is not natural and the light from our early nuke tests escaped into space -- that is a damn good way to find where there is a melting pot of intelligent life -- they got here within a decade. That does not mean those that came here before did not know we were here, just they did not know the extent to our intelligence. We just harnessed the power of the atom that is an intense discovery to "people" like them!
Let's use a distance of a hundred light-years, it took them around 10 years max to set up a convoy and get out here to check us out (only to find out that we're still dumb, we use the atom for war, not fuel -- not they never had terrible conflicts). Our fastest manned vehicles were the Saturn V moon rockets, at their speed this distance would have taken 2.74x106
Even if we assume that they have been coming here since 3000 years ago, it is still the same. If the have been traveling for
3000 years, then they would only need 3% of light speed, but they'd also need a ship large enough to take the equivalent of 100 generations of people -- that's something the size of Rhode Island, USA. If they are any bit smarter than us, then they are probably thinking with cost-effectiveness in mind, building faster is cheaper than bigger, considering mass, plus it would have taken their planets' GDP folded a dozen times to do so -- yeah the hell right.
This is the point of my argument: We cannot judge their abilities based on our science; Einstein’s theories do not explain them. Our scientists say the energy requirements needed just to get to the nearest star are like the size of our sun, yet they come here with things the size of school buses. They are smarter than we are, period, and they probably already thought of the things we have thought of many thousands of years ago.
Just because it makes sense now does not mean it will make sense in a few decades, stop acting as if it is solid rock. I do not imply all the things that you think of when you read this, just the idea of buying something and then shutting up about it feels like giving up.
I do not give up, unfortunately, some of you do, and too easily, I might add.
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
