50/50 assumes only two options so I'm still not quite sure what you're driving at here. If we take your analogy, where you seem to be suggesting that all hypotheses are equal, then the Earth orbiting the Sun and the Sun orbiting the Earth aren't the only hypotheses available are they?jck100 wrote:An example of 50/50 would be the earth orbits the sun or the sun orbits the earth. It is not the example itself but the fact that if one is correct then the other must be wrong.
Then again, all hypotheses aren't created equal -- are they?
My apologies, I'm not sure how to parse that paragraph. Could you expand on this a little?jck100 wrote:A previous universe assumed initially must then be compatable with every step the solution takes towards a complete answer to how that previous universe was there in the first place, so it is not intended as an unanswered question.
I think part of my confusion is that you started out in this thread talking about "considerations" and you still keep saying it without giving it any context. Perhaps you could explain your terms and give what you're saying a little more context?jck100 wrote:I had every reason to assume a previous universe in order to start from scratch but without any other considerations it is easier to show this when the solution provides the same destruction of this universe to corellate the same scenario for comparison.
I'd be interested in evaluating this for myself. Like I asked earlier, which forum was it?jck100 wrote:As far as the other forum is concerned things deteriated from the start where no one was willing to accept a consideration but simply wanted to promote mainstream theories as correct in as much as anything else was of little value.
So it's more a "what if" than a serious attempt to propose an alternate hypothesis?jck100 wrote:I consider this perspective of great value in a comparitive sense that gives a different perspective that no one has to accept.
I suspect that you'll find, on many forums, people tend to appreciate clear and concise explanations which, if they make extraordinary claims, offer extraordinary evidence. That seems fair don't you think?jck100 wrote:I may be the only one who thinks this so I am merely asking if things are any different on this forum.
