Theory of Everything

Stephen Hawking wrote a book entitled, The Grand Design, in which he stated that there is no God. He wrote another, The Theory of Everything. Those two books suggest that Stephen Hawking has his mind closed to possibilities that may be true, but he will not consider them if a creative agent, like God, is involved. Pity. His closed mind may cause him to miss some science that he wants to know. Physicists like Hawking may note that a theory of everything seemed feasible if gravity, the weak, the strong, and the electromagnetic forces are concatenated. All seemed harmonious until…

PZ Myers and his Pharyngula blog.

PZ Myers with his Pharyngula blog says he will never debate Joseph Mastropaolo. PZ Myers was challenged to a science trial, not a debate, and he apparently does not know the difference (science trial). That is not surprising because he writes newspaper articles, not science articles published in peer reviewed science journals. PZ Myers is well qualified as a heckler, not as a scientist, and as a self avowed atheist he denies the reality of universal originality and believes instead in the 347-year-old superstition, evolution. Pity. Had he chosen science instead of superstition he might have accomplished something noteworthy.

***************** EVOLUTION: the 500-year-old superstition. The invention of the microscope and the scientific spirit of a medical doctor, Francesco Redi, put spontaneous generation and evolution in their proper places as the superstitions that preceded science. In 1668, Dr. Redi put putrefied meat in three jars, one open [see (b) below], one covered with gauze [see (c) below], and one securely sealed with paper [see (a) below]. The flies flew into the open jar, laid their eggs on the meat, and soon the maggots hatched from the eggs. The flies laid their eggs on the gauze covering jar (c), because they…

Science Trials for Originality Critics

Science Trials for Originality Critics For the critics of the fact that all of the natural objects in the universe are originals, a science trial is offered. For such a trial, the court costs are collected up front rather than after the trial. The tentative rules follow. The critic of universal originality puts court costs of $10,000 in escrow. Joseph Mastropaolo puts court costs of $10,000 in escrow. The trial will be adjudicated by a certified neutral Superior Court Judge or Appeals Court Judge acceptable to both parties (For example, from http://www.jamsadr.com/). Only objective, valid, reliable, calibrated science evidence will…

Bulletproof

To be bulletproof, the missiles of the enemy bounce off the armor harmlessly. A review of literature is bulletproof because it reports history. For science, the review begins with the ancient Greek, Anaximander, and the superstition that the Earth will spontaneously create life by the vitalism of the goddess, Gaea.

Originality Relativity

Sn on U

Originality specifies the geometry of an object. The object must be sufficiently like the others of its kind to be recognizable as part of that group. Yet it must be sufficiently different to be recognizable as an original. For a snowflake for example, there are six radii all of the same design. Yet that design is different from the design of any other radius of any other snowflake. Originality sets the boundaries of similarity and uniqueness within and between objects. Living objects also are constrained to permit living as a group. The community of cells in a multi-celled organism relies…
