I do not believe you have much choice in how long you live. Not unless you self terminate which is gruesome to talk about when you are so young.

Point is, you see the changes whether you like it or not...

When you study history you see how difficult it was for any of those theories to be formed. In some cases men and women were put to death, or ostracized and laughed at for their ideas.

Yes,we cannot be certain about anything unless we believe in it.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world,people who understand binary and people who don't.

But believing at each and every thing is also not at all good...something you also need proves..

Hi;

Descartes said he could find one truth, "cogito ergo sum."

Perhaps that there is not much that we can ever know to be true...

Just can not prove a whole lot. I say, do more math and less physics or bio and you will be a happy duck.

You're right bobbym,that's why math is my favorite topic,I love to see theorems being proved

Hi;

That is opposite to me. I love finding counterexamples to bogus proofs by would be mathematicians on other forums. At least I used to, before they kicked me out.

That's also a proof,you are proving that the given proof is false.

Not true and this is from Carl Sagan, "Hinduism is the only religion that has a cosmology that is close to the modern one in time scales."

That is true but it is generated by experimental techniques rather than an axioms and theorems.

Mathematics is a subject with rules but no objective.

Hi Agnishom;

[align=center]**Big Bang theory takes a step closer to being proved true with discovery of gravitational waves**[/align]

Scientists say they have extraordinary new evidence to support a Big Bang Theory for the origin of the Universe.

Researchers believe they have found the signal left in the sky by the super-rapid expansion of space that must have occurred just fractions of a second after everything came into being.

It takes the form of a distinctive twist in the oldest light detectable with telescopes.
