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.

Stephen, UK English and USA English appears to differ in small ways, one of which I learned in a course on mathematical logic.

An exclusive ‘or’ (A or B but not A and B) distinguishes scientists from pseudoscientists.

An inclusive ‘or’ (A or B or A and B) does not distinguish the two.

I didn’t know there were two kinds of “or’ until I took that course.

I’m happy to see that you are suspending judgment, a scientist’s option.

I've heard some theoritical physisist say that their a mini black holes all around us popping up and popping out.

Membrain theory - The latest is there are 13.

People watch too much star Treck and read too much Science fiction -  in my opinion.

A number of people I worked with moved to Berkely Livermore Lab. They were working on interesting stuff with nuclides and brain cancer.
