Physics, Astronomy & Cosmology / Re: Talking about Physics« on: Yesterday at 09:23:37 »
Philosophy tries to decide which questions are meaningful; Physics just does some experiments.No. Philosophers assert which questions are meaningful, then question the meaning of meaningful until they disappear through their own anal sphincters. Physics is about discovering and predicting useful and interesting stuff.
As an experimental physicist I'm quite used to the banter of engineers ("bloody scientist...") and theoretical scientists ("oily-fingered engineer...") but nobody has ever insulted me with the title of philosopher!
