Hello everyone

#1  Postby Physicsyy » Jan 05, 2014 3:07 pm

Hi,

After roaming around for a while, I found out that this is a nice community and decided to join. I just wanted to introduce myself. I am Physics graduate student, I love talking about Physics and have been annoyed a lot by the pseudo-science in the internet. Particularly, I am rather disappointed that some of the people from highest educational qualifications, even physicists believe in some sort of 'God'. Well, I would love to have a great time out here! If there is anything I am missing, let me know.

Regards

There's a lot missing, but not from your posts. What's missing is the lack of rigor in accepting a sky daddy on faith alone, since there is no evidence.

Maybe those physicists have fallen for the "God Particle" BS?

I'll get my hat...

Welcome to the forum, BTW.

I know one of those physicists too. You're right, it is disappointing.

Great, thank you for the information.

Yeah, I would love to. I am pretty much tired after an exhaustive schedule and other graduate students might know better. But, the community seems to be very mature here, I doubt there would be many students.

I look forward to seeing you in the physics threads too, physicsyy; I like to post there sometimes too.
