  1. On my profile page, 'male' seems to be the default, as is 'Singapore' for time zone'. Perhaps some noticed that, to? So am I Malay or ethnic Chinese? In any case, these errors bunch nicely with my spelling as for viable cause: i'm always in a rush & simply don't bother to correct what's otherwise a 'social' (non-academic) endeavor. In this way, among others, I'm a typical, slobby student: jeans, little makeup, 5-6 slender, inter-mural soccer (all-state high school!). I'm not really 'looking' for another steadyguy, as I enjoy the freedom after a two-year relationship. My special side is hav
  2. General Relativity (GR) predicts a finite universe that's in a steady state. With the observations of Hubble, however, we know that the universe, while finite, is expanding. This required a revision of GR that was done by others, based upon the differential geometry of Wyl...another story. Independent of any theory, we also have 20+ year old evidence that waves bounce off of the universe's rim, and are therefore received. So the search for gravitational waves is normal science, given said ability to receive, which is an instrumental issue. In this respect, there's the possibility of an announc
  3. The subject in question, Smith, seems rather fond of the altruism issue as raised by Rand; the reference to his article is attached to all of his postings on OL. Therefore, there is no reason to believe that Smith gives Rand’s ideas unnecessary gloss. This, of course, is important in the sense that it firewalls the writer from a he-said-she-said confusion of cross purposes. For all extent and purposes, Smithrand is Randsmith. As such, Rand’s thesis is simple: altruism stands opposed to selfishness. Now this is obvious. One is said to be either thinking of others’ interests or of onese
  4. Jules, No one denies that a minority of scientists disagree with human-caused global warming. Likewise, the HGW debate is clouded on both sides by scientists whose work is not directly involved in the issue. Yes, only .45 of 1% of our atmosphere is CO2. This corresponds back to earth mean temperature on the Keeling Curve. An additional part of CO2 will give a commensurate raise in temperature, ceteris paribus. Obviously the debate centers around accuracy of the measurements and data access. Of course,the large x factor is the absorption of CO2 into the oceans, obviously a huge problem in itse
  5. So at least we can agree that you amerikans have the wherewithal to look up 'anthropocene yourselves on Wiki, and perhaps 'Keeling curve, global ocean warming' as well? Progress, at last! EM Such a petulent child. such a lazy ignoramus
  6. I'm afraid I've searched the article in vain for a working definition of 'cultural Marxist'. I do know the obvious one, however: certain people claim to be 'Marxist', which can be verified by comparing their utterances to what you, as a normal, intelligent person, understands Marxism to be. They then apply said Marxist concepts to issues of culture. To this end, most socialists are not only not Marxist, they violently disagree with his theories much in the same way that Randites denounce the Republican party and Libertarianism, too. Although it's easy to disagree with both of them (as I do!),
  7. Then why did he call the cosmological constant his biggest mistake? Ellen He added his "cosmological constant" in order to have a steady-state universe. Hubble's observations proved beyond doubt that the universe is expanding. Had Einstein left his equations alone he (or others) would have predicted on the basis of theory that the universe is either expanding or contracting. He would have scooped Hubble just by theoretical means. Ba'al Chatzaf I know why he added the cosmological constant, Bob. Eva stated - see above - that Einstein "stubbornly believed , to the end, that the universe was

  9. Civilization as we know it has flourished during the current interglacial. That last ice age is what separated the neanderthal from the cro mag. The cro mags were able to put their social and technical skills to work to figure out how to survive the Ice. The neanderthals did not make the grade. The disappeared about 30,000 years BP. We have been spoiled rotten by an interglcaial period of 10-15 thousand years and many believe the climate we now enjoy has been the "normal" climate of Earth. Bzzzzt.... Not true. When the next Big Freeze comes modern homo sapien will be put to as rigorous a
  10. Actually he was down on the Imperialism of his nation. He degraded those who put their faith in "reeking tube and shard". He knew at some level the game was up for British Imperialism. Ba'al Chatzaf I believe you're citing "God of our fathers..."? 'Interesting interpretation! Mine is more run-of-the-mill: as we colonialists are doing god's work, me must not forget (him). EM

  12. If you seriously think that the introduction is nothing more than that which is restated by the conclusion --and not an intent to prejudice--then you're one dumb motherfucker. Sincerely, the Bitch.
  13. And what has given you insight into the physiology of optics? Cite your sources. Back up your claims with proof. Let's revist my alleged "hissy fit." You had claimed that "the sensation of depth and shimmer that Vermeer, et al, achieved was enhanced by glossing the surface." My alleged "hissy fit" consisted of nothing but my asking for clarity on what you meant by "glossing the surface," and my asking you to explain how you had scientifically determined that "glossing the surface" resulted in the effects that you claimed, versus other possible explanations. Here's what I asked you: See, the
  14. it's not even good high-school journalism to prejudice one's source prior to making factual points. Whether or not Obama is intelligent or moral in his stance towards Israel should be a conclusion, not a premise. In any case, the author's factual presentation of the main issue is false: Israel continues to build settlements while, a the same time, talking of negotiating to halt construction. To this end, all Obama is saying offering is common-sense truth: Israel cannot use the threat of future construction as a means of negotiation. He's also saying, dismantle all the settlements, immediatel
