NASA Confirms New EM Thruster Violates Laws Of Conservation

Wired reports: Nasa is a major player in space science, so when a team from the agency this week presents evidence that “impossible” microwave thrusters seem to work, something strange is definitely going on. Either the results are completely wrong, or Nasa has confirmed a major breakthrough in space propulsion. British scientist Roger Shawyer has been…

What Exactly Is Spacetime?

Have you ever heard the term “spacetime” thrown around in various science articles around the web?  Just what exactly is “spacetime” and how does it relate to standard theories about space? I think Wiki manages a rather good description of this odd substance, so let’s start there.  Wiki defines spacetime as: spacetime is any mathematical…

Why It’s Impossible For Reductive Materialism To Fully Explain The Universe

It is generally accepted that reductive materialism is the only acceptable philosophy for a scientist to hold.  It’s a form of physicalism that treats the entire universe as if everything is physical.  To quote wiki, “It asserts that mental events can be grouped into types, and can then be correlated with types of physical events in the brain.” This type of philosophy…

Gold Produced From Ground Up Beer Bottles

According to Blue Eagle Refiners Inc, they can produce up to 400oz of pure gold from 1 ton of empty beer bottles.  Their process and rate of gold production far exceeds the production rates of the best gold mines in terms of cost per unit of metal obtained. Assuming these guys are legit, that pretty much…

Kirchhoff’s Law Proven Invalid, The Implications Are Enormous

Prof. Pierre-Marie Robitaille, Ohio State University, demonstrates why Kirchhoff’s Law of Thermal Emission is not valid, and the implications that invalidity has for all future scientific inquiry. Pierre-Marie Robitaille, Ph.D. Department of Radiology and Chemical Physics, Ohio State University EU2014 Conference, On the Validity of Kirchhoff’s Law of Thermal Emission, Albuquerque 20-24 March 2014 Kirchhoff’s Law…

What Quantum Mechanics Says About Conciousness

“Science vs. religion is a very recent forced choice that the founders of quantum mechanics would have never recognized, much less accepted.” – Juan Miguel Marin “The full meaning of life, the collective meaning of all human desires, is fundamentally a mystery beyond our grasp. As a young man, I chafed at this state of affairs.…
