They are an animal that uses some rudimentary tools. How many Dolphins that you know have made a car, a plasma telly?
Nobody knows actually how intelligent a Dolpin is, we know they can generalise which is also true for pigs, and we know they can communicate, also true of great apes. Dolphins are wild animals but people anthropomorphise them into some cute cuddly creature. They are not, Dolphins commit infanticide and they rape anything. Several people have been raped by Dolphins, there is even a story that Demi Moore had a close encounter, not that I would blame the Dolphin, I always though Demi Moore was pretty hot.
How long do you think it would take before a Dolphin is ready to explore space?
For one, how do you propose to use these Neutrinos?
For two, the above experiment was proven incorrect. In the link you gave me it says:
But the group understands that what are known as "systematic errors" could easily make an erroneous result look like a breaking of the ultimate speed limit.
That has motivated them to publish their measurements.
"My dream would be that another, independent experiment finds the same thing - then I would be relieved," Dr Ereditato told BBC News.
But for now, he explained, "we are not claiming things, we want just to be helped by the community in understanding our crazy result - because it is crazy".
This follow up story shows us what the independent testing showed:
Not so fast. On Wednesday the CERN team said they had made a mistake, Science Magazinereported. Something had gone wrong with the timing gear, and with the optical fiber connection. Neutrinos, they said, probablydon’t travel faster than light, at 186,000-miles-per-second. Or at least they haven’t been able to prove it yet.
“Always check the cable before doubting Einstein,” Forbes wrote with glee Wednesday. Five other reasons you should never doubt the father of modern physics after the jump.
Who is doing that? Fringe crackpots? People who "Self educated" themselves with science? I do not label things magic. I just do not do that. I doubt anyone in real Science would as well.
Some things are impossible, things are what they are. That's just life.
No it is not, that is why they are do not have the same names. Fantasy is imagination. Imagination can inspire, but it is no benchmark.
Yes indeed, that is the proof you were asking for is it not?
Why? What drives you to believe this is not only possible, but has happened?
Exactly, with what we know, there is an equal chance that we are alone here. The stars indicate otherwise, but as far as proof goes, we have none for life outside of this planet. As such, everything we are told from those who claim to know about Aliens is made up.
Perhaps, it was a very early step, but the example I had brought up was indicative of space faring species, I thought that was what we were getting at? If we hunt exoplanets and can leave the solar system, that has to be pretty impressive next to a Dolphin right?
