@Prasun Biswas Reminds me of a Good Will Hunting scene ^.^

Anyway thank you and everyone else! I shared this exclusively on Brilliant because I knew there are people who truly care and understand. Like, why are rock and ruler the best friend? Because

Didn't want to make a separate note on this, but check this out:

"Just a theory." "Simply exploded."

This is what they call science "education." Makes me cringe. John Muradeli · 1 year, 9 months ago

@John Muradeli This reads like something being taught in certain schools that don't want its kids to accept the Big Bang theory. In other words, it seems intended to induce a lot of eye-rolling. Michael Mendrin · 1 year, 8 months ago

@Michael Mendrin They should start every science class explaining why Theory > Fact. But then try teach Big Bang and Evolution in some schools and... uh-oh. You better have Richard Dawkins somewhere in proximity. Or me ^.^ John Muradeli · 1 year, 8 months ago

@John Muradeli "Just a Theory". And so, "Electromagnetic Theory", "Special Theory of Relativity", "Quantum Field Theory", "Information Theory", even "Theory of Gravity" are all "just theories", i.e. it's just a guess, nothing proven here, nothing to see, move on please. "Oh, you know! It's just a theory, we don't know yet if it's true!"

I used to watch science fiction movies about dystopian futures where science is dismissed, laughed at, and even made criminal. Sometimes science fiction movies can be prophetic. You think "science being made criminal" is too far fetched? In some southern states of America, it's now a criminal offense for scientists and engineers working for states to even discuss or write about rising ocean levels because of global warming. They can now be prosecuted for that. Michael Mendrin · 1 year, 8 months ago

@Michael Mendrin The United States?? PROSECUTED?! What states?? John Muradeli · 1 year, 8 months ago

@John Muradeli Read this as just one example:

Scientific American

A number of other states have passed similar with varying degrees of enforcement/penalties. It's basically a gag law. It's not much different from what happens if you agree to abide by certain conditions when you're hired to work for a corporation, including confidentiality, and then you violate that agreement.

@Michael Mendrin Ah I see. Basically they prohibit scientists from releasing any studies that inform about global warming. Why am I not surprised. No wonder I didn't do well in the Harvard Model Congress this year. I am a scientist who tried to do politics. You can imagine how that went. John Muradeli · 1 year, 8 months ago

@Michael Mendrin Wait... WHAT?! John Muradeli · 1 year, 8 months ago

@John Muradeli I seem to recall that Florida has passed a even stiffer gag law, and somebody lost his state job because of it. Stories like this keep cropping up, I can't remember all of them.

Yeah, check out this article

@Michael Mendrin Yea I've read an article written by a conservative the other day, asserting global warming is a "religion," not a fact. It ended with "God bless America." Oh the irony. John Muradeli · 1 year, 8 months ago

@John Muradeli This is why I go for the Steady State Theory instead Jeremy Bansil · 1 year, 8 months ago

@John Muradeli I could make out what the first para wants to convey regarding the relation between data and theory.

"simply exploded" thing...might depend on the audience being targeted.

"The Ralph A. Rodriguez Memorial Award is presented to a graduating senior who has demonstrated both love of and aptitude in the area of Mathematical Science" is a thing, at the top of a list of 36 items approved by the Hoboken High School Board of Education. Hey, that's pretty good. Michael Mendrin · 1 year, 9 months ago

@Michael Mendrin How do you know what school I go to?? John Muradeli · 1 year, 9 months ago

Log in to reply

@John Muradeli It's right on the plaque? But, true, maybe your reputation is so far and wide that the Hoboken Board of Education has decided to make this award to you even though you're attending Miami High School. Michael Mendrin · 1 year, 9 months ago

@Michael Mendrin Ooh... no I think from your unintentional mistake you unintentionally guessed the name of my high school - which is literally Hoboken High School. Well now it's Hoboken Junior/Senior High School now that they brought in the 7th graders but noone really calls it that ;p It's Hoboken Board of Education - not Hoboken High School Board of Education - they aren't separate. But honestly I hope I don't get THAT famous. Ugh... "CAN I HAVE YOUR AUTOGRAPH!!!" Lol. John Muradeli · 1 year, 9 months ago

@John Muradeli In any case, "Hoboken High" sounds like something out of the Harry Potter books. I can't keep track of either. Michael Mendrin · 1 year, 9 months ago

@Michael Mendrin Did you see the Go Noobs Weekly, by the way? It is in fact considered by many to be the hardest puzzle OF ALL TIME. Took a group of [educated] students over 1000 hours to solve. Now obviously it ain't the hardest - we still gotta solve the Riemann Hypothesis - but you get the case. It's hard. So if you ever need to fit a hard [doable] problem on a small paper, just print this :D

And I really wonder who went around disliking all these comments. Haters, haters everywhere. But
