The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Dark Matter Discovered!!!

    Scientists have found direct evidence for Dark Matter.

    http://today.reuters.com/news/articl...archived=False

    I don't want to get too carried away before there's more peer review of the results, but this is truly mind blowing. This is one of the biggest questions of astronomy and physics. Perhaps most exciting of all, is that if there nature is predicted to be similar to the previously undetected particles predicted by string theory, we'd have our first physical proof of string theory.

    With the addition of the LHC coming up in Europe, we can truly hope to see some amazing breakthroughs in our lives, and I wouldn't be shocked to see the formulation of a TOE.

    Any thoughts?

    "Scientists still do not know what exactly dark matter is, but have theorized it must exist"

    Solid, really.

    Theorizing that, something must exist, even though they have no idea what that something would be.

    Totally misinterpreted. They have several candidates and criteria which dark matter must meet. It can't interact with strong and weak force. It's must compromise 90% of the universe by mass. In order to account with our current view of the universe and our current understanding of particle physics dark matter must be invoked or the universe quite frankly doesn't make sense. This discovery indicates that we can have MUCH more confidence in both our universal model and particle physics model.

    They're not sure exactly what it would look like, however because it doesn't interact with the strong and electromagnetic force analyzing this particle would be an ungodly challenge. String theory makes a few predictions but much more analysis is needed.

    Well, it can't be detected directly so they're always looking for its effects on things... just like in the old invisible man movies where you couldn't see the guy (he was invisible and all) but you could see his footprints, puddles from his shoes, etc.

    I believe the idea was 'If it really exists THIS will happen' and 'this' appears to have happened as they predicted.

    How can there be criteria for something that doesnt exist?

    If it truly doesn't exist everything we know about space and matter is flawed. While it's certainly possible wouldn't looking for the environmental effects of an x factor that proves that everything we know is right be a little more productive than assuming that we know diddly?

    You're mistakening what a theory is. Nothing is absolute. In science things can only be proven more or less likely. In this case the findings simply tip the scale to 'more likely'. Even scientific laws are just theories that have been continuously substantiated but not absolute. Nothing in science is absolute. You'll only find absolutes in mathematics...closest after that is physics.

    Im pretty sure dark matter goes along the lines of black holes and the like. So basically they check to see if the surronding stars arent in the right place, theres a big void somewhere etc. etc. Cant exactly be proven I guess because anyone that gets near it will die.

    Or be transported to another universe.

    BTW. I guess what I mean is the stuff black holes are "made" of.

    Sometimes people use deductive reasoning to figure something out. With this dark matter discovery, this is sort of the case. It can not be seen or directly measured through any currently known physical means, but it can be theorized to exist in all probability through a process of elimination of factors that would disprove it's existence. When you get enough theories and models that agree with one another, you start to form scientific laws.

    I still cant actually 'grasp' the idea that the universe is ACCELERATING outwards at an ever increasing rate... DOH>...LOL....

    Just wow.....

    Anyways, nice thread... Get the old grey matter hummin...

    peace out...
