I'm not too worried about all that. The Ancient Alien artifacts I've gathered give me specific and strategic spiritual abilities to free me from the government mind control.

Wait a minute, I'm in the wrong thread. :V

There are numerous dating techniques used in geochronology, one of which is radiometric (for which there is also a large subset). Yet there are cases where radiometric dating gives erroneous results, sometimes for reasons that are not understood. Should we therefore disregard radiometric dating? Why or why not?

If the dating tend to disagree with what you can date directly and you can't show why other than postulating a number of explanations, you should review the situation. Certainly disregard it for now if you don't really require this dating technique. The divergence must of course be significant enough that you actually need to evict the data that don't act as you want. In my book we're now discussing something that separates hypothesis from theory. If you have strong empirical evidence for something, but you can't yet supplement it with all the needed physical explanations, you have a hypothesis.

I don't think we disagree fundamentally, but I might have a more agnostic approach until all the pieces are in place. Perhaps unfairly more towards climate science than towards other sciences since it's a relatively new science yet to prove itself as having come of age. I don't know, but I'll admit it just in case. smile

3: Our hypothesis has failed multiple times; this is fairly disturbing.

Yes, repeated patching in order to make our hypothesis work might not be good, but it doesn't need to be anything wrong with an incremental approach either. Even if we find something seemingly good, correlation is not causation, and there are statistical traps which I think this XKCD strip describes pretty well.

Your exercise looks good, but for me the scientific weight is kind of like the sum of the checks multiplied by the physical explanation. Meaning that if you can't describe it in terms of physics, it doesn't really matter how many tests it passes. You get zero anyway. And we're stuck with a hypothesis.

Globalist banker illuminati mason reptilians using mind control signals sent through the TV turning us all into slaves for the new world order.

Don't forget how NASA is actually a galactic trade regulator and they are turning us into slaves so we can be bred and sold the the Globalist banker illuminati mason reptilians.

I'll never be able to look at that episode the same way.

This was mind blowing and insanely hilarious!

Edit:

Mandrake, do you know why Space Engine is so fun and addicting? Its part of a Soviet plot to distract Americans so they can poison our precious bodily fluids!

How did either of us fail at anything?

That movie Elysium: It's literally half of space station V, but blown up to stanford torus scale. Kind of like the project I'm working on, but I think it's bigger, and they don't seem to be trying to hide the fact that it's design is literally directly taken from SSV. The four, cylinder shaped arms, the cylinder shaped center with a trapezoid shaped docking area, etc.

It all looks really cool (the sci-fi and concept art), but I think this gives large space stations a bad name, pushing the idea that only wealthy people will ever be able to go into space.
