Porthole [sic[ to another reality which you may have seen being ubiquitous of late.
One can learn many unusual things there about the physical world. Like:
Quantum mechanics consists of the revolutionary breakthrough in physics in the 1920s in understanding how participles behave inside atoms. […] Quantum mechanics discovered that an electronic behaves in many ways like a wave rather than as a particle, and the position of that wave is never precisely known until it is observed. Even when it is observed, there is an inherent uncertainty that prevents measuring both the position and the momentum simultaneously. This is known as the Werner Heisenberg uncertainty principle.
Unlike most advances in physics, the theory of relativity was proposed based on mathematical theory rather than observation. The theory rests on two postulates that are difficult to test, and then derives mathematically what the physical consequences should be. Those two postulates are that the speed of light never changes, and that all laws of physics are the same in every (inertial) frame of reference no matter where it is or how fast it is traveling. This theory rejects Newton’s view of gravitation and replaces it with a concept that there is a continuum of space and time, and that large masses (like the sun) bend space in a manner similar to a finger depressing an area of a balloon. From this proposed bending of space the expression arose that “space is curved.” But experiments later proved that space is overall flat after all.
Einstein’s work had nothing to do with the development of the atomic bomb. Nothing useful has even been built based on the theory of relativity. Only one Nobel Prize (in 1993 and not to Einstein) has ever been given that even remotely relates to the theory of relativity. Many things predicted by the theory of relativity, such as gravitons, have never been found despite much searching for them. Many observed phenomenon, such as the bending of light passing near the sun or the advance of the perihelion in the orbit of Mercury, can be also predicted by Newton’s theory.
The author of the article on the ancient Sumerians no doubt saw his entry as proof that “brevity is the sole of wit”:
Ancient inhabitants of Sumer, Sargon the Great most famous, cuneiforms & ziggerauts
While somewhat later than the Sumerians, the emperor Trajan was fairly inscrutable:
The second of the Five Good Emperors. He adopted by Nerva and was succeeded by Hadrian. Out of the Five Good Emperors, Trajan ruled the most land.
But he had huge… eh… tracts of land.
In some cases, like ancient writings, the originals have been lost, and only quotations by other authors remain. One sad casualty being this description of Stalin:
Josef Stalin was an atheist communist Russian dictator during World War II. He was defeated by Adolf Hitler, despite Hitler also being an atheist.
Sadly, this indisposable resource has been defaced. See if you can figure out where the second sentence here ought to end:
Since atheists have no God and therefore no grounds for a system of morality, they live their lives according to the rule that “anything goes”. In recent years, this has led to a large rise in drug use, pre-marital sex, teenage pregnancy, pedophilia and bestiality, earthquakes, volcanoes, the dead rising from the grave, human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together and mass hysteria.
Recent heros are sometimes brought to life quite vividly:
In one of his most famous challenges to Soviet Communism in Europe, [Reagan] publicly uttered the words, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall,” before the tearing down of the Berlin Wall separating East and West Germany by yelling “REAGAN SMASH!” and destroying it with his fists of steel.
This resource is a full encyclopedia despite being but a newly fertilized embryopedia. Since this is not liberapedia, you would not want to see it cruelly aspirated away into the electronic ether. No no no, you would not, I say!
I know that members of the Three Bulls elite Special Encycloforces — which, basically, you’re a member of if you’ve ever read this blog — will realise it is their duty to help fill in some of knowledge which Conservapedia readers are craving.
Tragically, there currently no articles for:
I’m sure that you have ideas as to how best to introduce these topics to Conservapedia’s discerning readers.
