Our place in the universe!
Stingray Elite Ranger
So far we know that we exist on a planet we call Earth which is spinning on itself around a star we call Sun which is spinning on itself around the center of our galaxy we call the Milky Way which is spinning on itself around... this is where I lost track, everything is moving, the universe is expanding. I'm wondering since so much movement is cyclic, is the universe spinning too, and if so, around what? ;-) I should ask Neil deGrasse Tyson when he's open to questions and not pestering people for celebrating Christmas. lol
There is also a difference between evidence of absence and absence of evidence. A lot of armchair debaters try and leverage their viewpoint when there is no empirical or theoretical basis for it by calling on the latter. Science models the universe based on observable evidence, be it deduced or induced, mathematical modeling, and logic. To support an idea there needs to be evidence. That is science.
I work among scientists and engineers and to put it mildly, not all know what they are doing. ;-) Also, there is no harm in admitting that one does not know instead of making stuff up. Been there, done that.
