Ernies said:I believe, physics is a logical system, illdefined by our experience. Or,I deny that 99% of physicists really believe thst the goal of physics is a theory of everything -- at least if that means nore than the unification of gravity theory with the rest. The reason is very simple -- Godel's Theorem-- which certainly applies
physics = math + observation,
so to speak.
Manny of us know how Godel's theorem works in mathematics. However, to prove the theorem in physics, one needs to know how to apply it (godel's theorem) to the set of all observations in physics!
Well, I do not know how to do this.
Since you are certain that godel's theorem applies in physics, therefore I should ask you to show us how?
I am certain you will be more famous than Godel himself, if you prove his theory in physics.
What is this. Who told you that TOE needs infinite number of axioms?since no-one can handle in detail a non-denumerable infinty of axioms.
What are these people?Only fanatics
I thought these religious people believe that God and only God knows everything.religious and otherwise, think that a human mind can arrive at the explanation of everything
TOE will not put an end to physics.
My personal view is this: if mankind is not going to destroy the intelligent life on this planet, future physicists will arrive at equation which will have particular solutions such as John, Sofia and their pets.
No, I can not. Because the laws of nature (future TOE included) say this is not allowed.lifting ourselves by our own bootstraps ____ I hope you don't believe you can.
Wait a second. I never said or intended to say "he is stupid". How can I. I do not know the man.And stop telling CarlB he is stupid: he isn't.
From Carl's inaccurate statements about "physics", I infered:
1) he has a confused knowledge about physics,
2) he is not a physicist.
Niether 1) nor 2) means "he is stupid".
Sir, I am here to talk physics. Insulting people is not my intention.
So, do not accuse me of such thing, ok?
Carl says: QED violates Lorentz invariance.Like at least a couple of dozen
world-ranking scientists that I know of he just doesn't agree with you
I say: this is nonsense.
So, out of your 24 world-ranking scientists, I want you to name only one who agrees/disagrees with Carl/me. Come back to me with a name.
