Quote# 8205

even the theory of gravity is wrong: it works in some cases, but not in others. For example, if I drop a book, then I can tell you how it falls towards the ground, but if I pick something very large or very small our theory of gravity stops working.

Wow.How do you fit a dumptruck full of dumbass into one human brain?

Is this guy 500 years behind the times, and didn't hear of Galileo's experiment? Or is he talking abour air resistance, which is a completely different thing?

Well he certainly showed them thar' scentist folk! Who says you need a fancy 'High School' edumakashun or 'knowledge' of 'scientific theories', or an 'I.Q.' above 23.

The clue meter reads negative 4. Which is impressive, in a rather frightening way.

Would he still keep his views if we held an anvil over his head and then let go?

[saecasm]No. It's true! that anvil would just fall intelligently, because God wills it to fall! Gravity is a LIE!

I would much like to see a video of this guy picking something up and defying the law of gravity. Houdini would rise from his grave to get tickets to that show!

Wow. Now how to market this \"Antigravity\" device to NASA to help launch payloads into orbit...

\"Okay t-minus six...begin primary cluster dumbass lift...sequence initiated...GodGuy 1 has liftoff...this is the first launch of a human powered spacecraft, and unfortunately they only lifted it above their heads...\"

I think he's talking about 'very small' as in electrons, quarks, etc. and 'very large' as in stars and stuff. I think he's trying to get at the idea that Newtonian gravity is only an approximation, especially noticeable in the macro- and microscopes.

While _his_ 'theory of gravity' might not 'work' there is no evidence of any cases where the one accepted by the rest of us (general relativity) makes false predictions. The accuracy of its predictions have allowed us to make things that have improved our lives (eg GPS, which depends on predictions about gravity so accurate that Newton's theory isn't up to the job). It is a good theory.

I am not saying it is a perfect theory. There is currently no direct evidence for extra dimensions (although experiments to test for them will be conducted using particle accelerators in the near future) and it is impossible to formulate a renormalisable quantum theory of gravity in the number of dimensions we observe so it is clearly not the last word on the subject.

Why do you think things are heavy? Without gravity nothing would be on the planet.

Quantum Mechanic

I have a gravity experiment in mind for you, moron.
