We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Are Scientists or Pseudoscientists Claiming They Found a Black Hole?

A. The scientific method requires confirmation by others. Who will confirm this claim?

B. Scientists tell their peers of achievements in journals and at conferences. Give some thought to reasons why these people are using popular media.

Of all the things to get annoyed at Tom. I must have missed something because I didn't read anywhere that the scientist's are claiming absolute proof that they have found a black hole only that its a good hypothesis 

Stephen, I know you better than that. Don't pull that on me.

Black hole picture?

The image may be meaniningless but does that doesn't mean that there are are aren't  gravity wells?

Chris, what is your evidence for the existence of gravity wells?

The astrilogical measurements that were done as informed in the following link is a clue for gravity wells.

How A Solar Eclipse First Proved Einstein Right

Information such as the super massive black hole image should be distributed to the general public.  

Perhaps the main problem is it's distributed in the same tone withing the same media conglomerates that tout Kardashians breast, or buttock enlargment surgery.

Chris, if you believe Ethan Siegal you will believe Donald Trump.

Not familiar with Ethan Siegal - Looking it up I see he's a science fiction writer.

At first meantion I thought he might have been (the plumber) Leonard Susskind.  Perhaps I mistakenly linked the two names together because they are both from the Bronx.

In sarcasm I don't believe in Donald Trump.  Is he a real person or a figment of some unhinged political faction?

I'm not a banger.

As a joke about The Don and Black Holes - this is going to be kind of disgusting.

I heard Don liked his holes bleached.

I shouldn't write these terrable 'jokes" as Fundimentalemest Ilamisist are suiciding themselves.

I don't care if they kill themselves - just don' hurt others in their stupid belief system.

Do you think if it weren't for oil and the hugging and kissing the U.S.A has for the the Prince of the  KSA  it wound be such a big deal?

Disney seems wo worship it.

As a side note why is the US,England and Scandanivaing countr4ries  in a Suni Shia war Arabian/Iran war?

It seems the best thing we as a specie could do is divide ourselves from oil conflcts.

Doesn't seem that difficult does it?

Perghaps  we need to understand electricity and batteries better.

Pump stations resivoirs, and mines may work to keep the power on.

I read an interesting article about pumping air into salt mines as a backup generator.

There was a time and phylosophy where and when broadcast be it Radio, TV, or Internet  was thought to be for educational and information rather than commercial and entertainment porposes. 

Apparently the idea that some of these institutions would be used for the beterment and knowledge of society is a fanticy - perhaps even Universities as much as many market their sports teams - even worse cheer leaders for entertainment.  (Obvious sarcasm and disgust).    Fortunately there are still public libraries.
