AJ; From reading your posts to others, you seem to find it easy to engage in conversation with those who do not have the information that you possess. Thus your posts are quite coherent and valid (unless you are simply plagarising, of course). But when you are challenged the certainty of youir argument vanishes in favour of defensive trivia. If you choose to deny that this conversation beytween us rests on our disagreement as to whether science is descriptive or definitive, so be it. Question me all you want. At least I, for one, can defend my argument.

That wasn't the point of disagreement, you asserted that the terms used in science were not defined, i argued that they were, and they are, and you've done nothing but talk twaddle since then.

"someone who writes sci-fi is allowed to have an opinion. Whether that opinion is valid on this site is another question."

They're allowed to have an opinion, but not when they post here?

"If you feel it is, then I have friends, family, neighbours, acquaintances, whose opinions are equally as valid. Would you like to hear them all?"

The forum is open to anyone with an account, dear.

"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: "

The funny thing about a ball of gas in space is that it doesn't really need belief to appear when it does.

C.S. Lewis - a fantasy author - never managed to understand something simple. Namely that people can believe the moon is made of cheese as much as they like - but it still goes on being made of rock regardless.

"Oh and 'May the force be with you' lol! "

Failed, your attempt at making a joke has.

-"Ok; So get down to the actual argument."

Yes lets.

-"Why do you think "E=MC2" is a defintion, a reality?"

Why do you insist on writing that equation incorrectly? It is E=mc².

I don't regard this it is a definition it is an equation, but the individual elements E (rest energy), m (rest mass) and c (speed of light) are all defined, as are gravity, velocity and every other quantity used in Physics.

-"Do you not realise that this equation is proof of the relativity of reality and its observation?"

No i don't, because it isn't.

-"Or are you a hardcore mathematical extremist?"

Just someone who has a passing knowledge of Physics. Which reminds me, how is your correspondence course going? Do you attempt this same schtick with your examiners?

AJ Murray says:
-" I am not as computer literate as you are, so my failure to index is my fault."

There are alternate ways of writing it, but none capitalise the symbols for mass and the speed of light.

E=mc^2 for example.

-"Second, You consider "E=MC2 to be an equation, not a definition, So why are you arguing with me?"

Because you declared both energy and mass to be undefined which is incorrect.

-"Third, You clearly believe the literal truth of your scientific texts without reflecting upon those truths."

Clearly? Weasel words. I don't take scientific models to be literal truth, that would be stupid.

-"Thank God( or whatever holds me together) Bohr, Schrodinger and Heisenberg did not adopt your literal stance to scientific texts. =)"

I think you will find that Bohr, Heisenberg and Schrödinger all defined the quantities used in their calculations.

He also spent a lot of time making fun of the Catholic Church. Still was always one of my favourite comedians.

He had the rare knack of being wise, insightful and still managing to be very humourous.
