About Me:I'm a tropane alkaloid.
Activities:I like to do physics, pharmacodynamics, neuroscience, and philosophy. Physics is the abusive spouse that beats me up, makes me feel stupid, but ultimately forces me to come back to it because I love it so much. Pharmacodynamics and neuroscience come from my personal interest in the human brain and psychoactive substances. As for philosophy, I shouldn't have to explain that.

Quotes:"But in 1952 I saw the impossible done. It was in papers by David Bohm. Bohm showed explicitly how parameters could indeed be introduced, into nonrelativistic wave mechanics, with the help of which the indeterministic description could be transformed into a deterministic one. More importantly, in my opinion, the subjectivity of the orthodox version, the necessary reference to the "observer," could be eliminated. "

But why then had Born not told me of this "pilot wave"? If only to point out what was wrong with it? Why did von Neumann not consider it? More extraordinarily, why did people go on producing ""impossibility"" proofs, after 1952, and as recently as 1978? " Why is the pilot wave picture ignored in text books? Should it not be taught, not as the only way, but as an antidote to the prevailing complacency? To show us that vagueness, subjectivity, and indeterminism, are not forced on us by experimental facts, but by deliberate theoretical choice?" -J.S. Bell

General Relativity Implies that God does not Exist

Miles_Donahue
Sargon

For some time, Sargon has contended that general relativity supplies an argument for atheism; that is to say, implies that God does not exist. Him and I have debated this issue else where, and I am more convinced than ever that general relativity implies no such thing. But for the convenience of DDO users, a debate here would be helpful. First round is for Sargon to present his argument as Pro. For an equal number of rounds, Sargon will not be posting a reply on round four. Plagiarism...

Science has shown/is about to show God to be implausible/unecessary as an explanation

Dmot
Sargon

I tried this debate earlier but someone accepted it by accident who agreed with me (at least thats what I think happened). So I'm trying it again. I want to debate whether or not science has shown or is on the verge of showing that God isn't needed to explain the universe or that God doesn't exist. In other words, does science show God to be less plausible?I contend that this is NOT the case Note, this is not a debate about Christianity per se or any other religion. It is a debate...
