Penguins are indeed ducks. Such surety of the matter comes with the support of the very definition of a duck: "A waterbird with a broad blunt bill, short legs, webbed feet, and a waddling gait." This definition from "Science and Society: Understanding Scientific Methodology, Energy, Climate, and Sustainability" by Eric S. Swanson states the very characteristics that define what a duck is. Looking at the common attributes of penguins, it is evident that penguins have the very same attributes that...

I assert that this is true for the elemental properties of the Universe - including space, time, matter, and energy (STME). While we may be one of many versions of the Universes that has expanded and contracted, I find it more logical that at a base level STME has always existed. The argument of...
