    Yeah, you make a good point about the jargon. Some basic terms must be established before things like the incompleteness theorems can even be talked about: terms like consistent, complete,...

    This x1000.

    Based on this trailer, it already looks like it's not the Ghostbusters from the 80s that I knew. I notice new movies have to take themselves more seriously in general for whatever...

    Godel's theorems (there are 2) demonstrate certain limitations of formal axiomatic systems having particular properties. An important thing with this is: the theorems dont apply to just any old...

    I guess the standard answers here will be Newton, Euler, Gauss, Archimedes.

    It's a question of opinion, not entirely different than who is the best artist of all time, or musician, or novelist....

    did you really have to, 1 minute later, not only post the same article again, but use the forum-shortened URL from the previous post as the actual URL, generating the 404 error?

    I notice you seem...
  • Not really sure what this is saying. If you are...

    Not really sure what this is saying. If you are asking why someone like the author of Matthew would construct a story as such, well his incentive is fairly clear- to have the Messiah of Jesus be the...

    Huh, hundreds of years later? When exactly do you think the books of the NT were composed?

    There is a more obvious take than what Jayarbie is saying above about all of this. One not need...

    Linen? eh I guess you mean frankincense?

    I mean it's pretty reasonable to observe the author of Matthew is writing this segment about the 3 magi and nativity scene in Bethlehem to merely...

    This. It's always vague, and it's always after the invention/discovery was made, that people try to backtrack and smuggle it into the holy book in question. Say you have a religious holy book X...

    Tbh I'm not that familiar with Susskind's work with black holes, maybe someone else can chime in. My general perspective with regard to black holes is there is much out there that is quite...

    In GR, gravity is not considered a force, but rather a fictitious force. The best way to observe this is in free fall, you feel nothing acting on you....you really feel nothing at all. This would...

    This is a well-known example of selection bias. I actually find myself doing this with the number 3:14 since it's the start of pi. It seems like of all the times I look at the clock (or even just...
