Yes, it has moved the peopl on board would have felt the accelleration
The only thing that has meaning is the space ship!!
Hello People of the forumIn my musings I have thought about speed and the logic of movement in a hypothetical totally empty, vacuum, void of infinite dimensions.Example oneThe void must be thought of as absolutely devoid of everything, light, energy, matter. Think about total black empty darkness in every direction, stretching outwards into infinity.
Impossible in this universe; This empty vacuum you speak of does not exist, nor could it. There is no space empty of field, therefore, the space the Big Bang created is something and the word "Nothing" to describe it is a false concept. Imagine if you will, space resembling something like the ocean, only there is no earth below nor is there a sky above. Now imagine your a fish, moving through it only displaces the water before you and then it is added back to where you just were. Nowhere is there found a place where water does not exist. Space is a little like that, moving through it only displaces the field before you with the matter you consist of, which BTW is constructed of fields itself. In short, this hypothetical makes no sense and is of little use when trying to understand the nature of this universe...................Ethos
Put my little space ship into this empty space, why not?
Maybe this will help; If you were to cut a piece from an apple and then tell others that the piece you cut from it was no longer apple, it would be the same as your example. You can't leave this universe because you are the universe and the universe is you................Ethos
The universe needs an observer to exist?
The universe needs an observer to exist? I agree Alan, but only on a spiritual level. Scripture says: "This universe cannot contain him". You'll note, this verse is not speaking about mankind. And BTW, what does an external observer have to do with my last statement? We are still part of this universe and the universe is part of us....................Ethos
I am with you and believe in the same reality, but some very angry Scientists on this very forum will get very upset with us. My thread on the possibilty of an intelligent designer off the universe just met angry counter statementsAlan
Of course, your imaginary universe might be different, please feel free to make one up for yourself. Just remember that it has nothing to do with science.
In all honesty, you should know that a science forum is not a very good place to discuss religion. People have a right to believe what they want and it will do no good to argue with them Alan. Remember the scripture; "Not to cast your pearls before -----". I would resist trying to convince anyone not willing to listen about the value of faith. Just remember, this is a science forum and scientists require proof. Without evidence, you're waisting your time trying to convince anyone at this forum................Ethos
Proof isn't logically the same as circumstantial evidence
