I found this today while waiting for some code to run. It’s a quote from physicist Lawrence Krauss .
« The 2010 Nobel Prizes
I am now apart of “Project Steve” »
I’m sorry, but the fundamental basis of Krauss’s quote is epistemically flawed.
That atoms emerged from an exploding star is not deduced from a complete and consistent theory of the Universe but rather a patchwork of ad hoc, incomplete theories that are not agreed-upon by all members of the scientific community.
Until a complete and consistent theory comes forward, even the greatest scientists – Nobel laureates included and especially – are simply speculating.
Hello Ik, thanks for stopping by.
I am not sure what you are getting at here. The production of higher elements in nuclear fusion reactions going on in the starts is on pretty solid scientific footing. I am not aware of a single physicist who would dispute it. Can you point to a single scientific source that claims higher elements are not predominantly created by stars then expelled to the universe during the subsequent supernova of a subset of those stars?
Me. I am that source. Just because the empirical evidence supports an ad hoc model does not make the ad hoc model correct. Who am I? I am a theoretician and a scientist.
Theories can be falsified on three levels: empirical, structural, and logical. A literary inspection of the evolutionary history of the cosmological storyline reads like a Ptolemaic nightmare or a Copernican dream – empirical, structural, and logical falsification, anomalies, paradoxes, and inconsistencies.
Nuclear fusion? What, you mean Gamow? Hoyle? et alia?
Please explain how this ad hoc model accounts for the dark energy and dark matter that exists in the Universe. Please explain how this accounts for the *origin* of black holes. Please explain how this model accounts for the *origin* of stars. Or the origin of planets.
It doesn’t. It doesn’t because it is incomplete. Only the complete and consistent theory of the Universe will be the correct model of how chemical elements emerged in the Universe.
Please consider me, Ik, the theoretician who has looked into the the epicyclean nightmare to reveal the true nature and origin of the sidereal dream.
Oh, and by the way, forget Jesus? No, don’t forget Me.
I know how I work – and I can prove it with all of the scientific evidence that has been accumulated over the history of Humankind.
