Hello members of the Science group, Some people awhile back asked for a list of transistion fossils.
Note to all members, any religious posts or News articles posted on this group will be deleted This s a science group, not a religious group. Thank you...
I heard many times that in fact power output of the Sun is very low compared to it's size. But people usually consider Sun as something monstrous with...
Triangulum brought to my attention this amazing article which I had to reply to... Enjoy :)
Something I mentioned in the debating group Moddb.com but really felt I should mention it here as I feel it would increase both the activity and reputation of this group:
If science is meant to be free thinking and about finding the truth then I think that even the greatest pseudoscience should be allowed on the science page. Of course science is also about proving others wrong more often then proving something right so destroying someone's opinions if they are presented in a coherent fashion is highly recommended. If someone proposes an alternative understanding of the universe and argues for it in a scientific manner it should be allowed on the science page. If they are just jumping to conclusions and have barely any coordination with flawed/made up evidence then it shouldn't be allowed. Otherwise the debate society page is more scientific than the science page if we can only post stuff other people that the mods of the science page support have published.
science is not opinion
I answered you already on the debate group
Science can be "opinion" in that there can often be conflicting theories and hypothesizes Cervi. When The Big Bang theory was proposed, the steady state theory was proposed in response (but later debunked as we all know).
Okay but just because something isn't right doesn't mean it has to be taken down. I mean early atomic models weren't right but we still use them to help explain more complex systems. Anyways it's your group and the only reason why I am mentioning this is because this group is barely active and I like science so in my opinion being able to destroy someone's pseudoscience every weeks or so would be more fun than seeing a "this is cool" update once every few months. At least pseudoscience would provide a conversation while a picture of cool looking stars or things everyone agrees on (those that don't usually get heir comments deleted ie anything to do with evolution) usually have barely any comments and aren't posted very often since most people here likely already learned about the latest discovery. Things I think this group is lacking are scientific journals/papers, links to science apps/programs, scientific discoveries, and scientific experiments/lab reports that an adapt scientist could conduct in their house/backyard.
I'm currently in bio20ap and I have access to a couple dozen (I think) journals which I could download and upload for you guys. Hopefully I'll be able to do that tomorrow as its kind of late and I need a good nights sleep for my chem20ap test tomorrow. I hope I do well on it.
I need help dudes, Is a better Windows Ultimate or Profesional ?
A-level Biology exam tomorrow. Wish me luck guys!
Scientific education in the U.S. is utterly pathetic. I transferred between states which had different classes in different years (another problem with the U.S. education system, all the states are different) and thus stuck me in a Chemistry class with 11th graders in it, even though it's usually meant for 10th graders. These are 17-18 year olds, yet their scores are so incomprehensibly low in science that today we had to do worksheets on basic algebra (I mean BASIC, BASIC algebra, like x+3=9, x=?) in order to progress. We're headed into dire straits, my friends >_<
Lets build a transdimensional portal and jump through. Lets hope we enter a dimension where the basic IQ is far above 90 or so...
Basic scientific knowledge quiz, if you get a single one wrong apparently you didn't pay attention in middle school.
(yes I actually got 13/13, only 7% of people got that score)
But then again, I am an Asian...
I got 12/13 because I have never heard of the term "fracking" We learn it in England as "cracking" I.e. cracking alkanes to alkenes give smaller more useful molecules using the catalyst alumina, silica at temperatures of 600-700 degrees c
Hmm. But now that I think about it, is Fracking the combination of the fractional distillation and catalytic cracking? I should have considered that before making the answer. oees wells.
But the idea of getting a single one wrong does not imply you did not pay attention in middle school. Lmao
Got 12/13 xP
For my defense I have to say that I misunderstood some questions due to my lack in my vocabulary, so I had to think a bit. But Fracking was the only thing I had to look for because I never heard that term and so I had no idea what that was (and we never had that in school either).
I messed up with the chemical reaction, a pretty stupid mistake. I spontaniously selected sugar dissolving, but nail rusting was actually corrosion - I confused it. *facepalm*
Second question I got wrong was about how scientists test antibiotics. I thought they would give all testsubjects a sample, but I had no idea.
