    Just makes me wonder about exactly what we are discovering. whether if in the grand scheme of things this is only the tip of the iceberg. Just how much more farther do we have to go and has anyone discoered it all before. Sitchin believes that a group of individuals from another planet discovered much of what we are present day only now coming into awareness of. He believes we are only just now catching up to ancient technology. He believes we were gentically enginered for this planet by the Nefilim. He has very convincing arguments, using bilical facts, historical facts and even genetics to prove his point.
    He discribed certain things the ancients already knew - like our solar system - with unbelievingly accuracy. Just makes me wonder how much are we being laughed at when we "discover" things like quntum physics. Plato was an intelligent man - ubelievingly intelligent. One who required facts to accept anything, and he swore that Atlantis existed. Just makes me wonder. thats all.
    I chose my signature for a reason. If you get it, you get it. If you don't..[shrug]can't help you[/shrug].
    Someone on this thread spoke about how this world is for the poets and philosphers - or its for us to understand. Either way i agree with them. I believe in each of us there is an innate ability to discern the secrets of the universe and our reason for existance - i also believe science is behind what many poets and philosophers already know about our abilities and universal possibilities. However being the nature that science is, it needs empirical evidence. Things it can put names to and manipulate. Poets just accept it and work with it.

    Anyways. It just made me wonder thats all. It just made me wonder. Many years from now when our generation is just a memory faded to dust and scattered to the winds. Will our descendants laugh at our puny accomplishments? our ridiculous beliefs and customs? How much truth will they have discovered in comparison to us? Just makes me wonder that is all.

    Sounds like high grade nonsense.

    The only innate ability is the faculty of reason and the only way to discover nature's secrets is to probe them with experiment.

    We do not laugh at Newton we hold him up to be an example of a brilliant mind, customs and "beliefs" rarely age well but scientific advancement does, we do not look back at the accomplishments of Newton, Darwin or any of the legion of brilliant minds that have come and gone as "puny" nor indeed the artistic genius of Mozart or Shakespear, some feats do not lose their grandeur with age.

    How much truth will they have discovered in comparison to us?
    That is an interesting question, from our current point view it looks like we've got atleast part of reality fairly well sowed up, the accuracy of the standard model of particle physics is astoundingly good, but there remain major challenges that could herald revolutions in our understanding. Never the less i would be very suprised if the scientists of the future had done away with quantum mechanics.
