Flat Earth Settled Science Update

Freeman Dyson is one of the greatest living nuclear physicists and also one of the flat earthers whom science expert Obama doesn’t have time to talk to.

In 1953, my father studied quantum mechanics at Cornell under Freeman Dyson. He taught that quantum mechanics is settled science and well understood.

Then in 1986, my father attended a discussion about quantum mechanics at the University of Adelaide, when Freeman Dyson said “nobody really understands quantum mechanics.

My father responded with “that isn’t what you taught us at Cornell

Freeman Dyson responded with “I am older and wiser now.”

I doubt that the hockey team has the intelligence to arrive at that same enlightenment.

    Good one.

    Back in the late 60’s we knew we weren’t as smart as an electron. The electron had solved it’s wave equation and we could only poorly approximate the solution.

    It is at the top of every Real Science post.

    “Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts.”

    Of course there is a difference between ignorance, and wilfull ignorance. One can be corrected, and the other cannot be forgiven.

    My father studied with Einstein at the Max Planck Institut fur Physic in 1935-37. He was an atmospheric physicist and “Expert” meteorologist for the WMO, published 3 papers in Nature in the 50’s concerning the formation of cloud droplets. In 1997 he told me AGW was a “tax grab” he did not even to explain the physics of it (AGW) he was so convinced of it rubbish value LOL He was spot on hahahaha

    Correction: He did not even bother to explain

      I used to believe in AGW until 2005.
      At the beginning many didn’t know if it was wrong or right, I mean the non experts in climate like me.
      If you cannot learn with the *facts*, you cannot be a real scientist and you naturally become a “flat-Earther”.

      Always bring a mecanic you can trust if you want to buy a secondhand car.

    The tragedy of the world is that men have given first class loyaliies to second class causes and these causes have betrayed them!
