      I agree with you, but physics also had to open up to accept things that are hard to demonstrate at the moment. Dark matter for instance, does not seem to play by the normal rules of things, other than gravity. Dark energy is even more confusing.


        I agree with science trying to figure things out but it also becomes an interesting point about when things fail to be testable. Just because it cannot be now does not mean it never will be but things like String Theory etc. are really hard to provide much proof for outside of mathmatics.


          Not saying religion fills those gaps at all, not at all, just saying that in a philosophy of science sort of way they are always odd ducks.

    Right. Agreed.

    But stick around. It took them half a century from the prediction of the Higgs Boson to actually finding it. Even longer for gravity waves.

Yes, but even with that there is finding it and then understanding it. There are loads of things that we think we have a grasp on that really are unknown entirely or nearly so.

What are the smallest unit of things, what actually is matter at the core level? We do not have perfect grasps on even things that are understood.

I am not saying it will never be known or anything. Or that nothing can be done because we do not have this information. It just seems that there might be limitations that may or may not be overcome.

    We'll get there.

Maybe, with some issues I think humanity will. With others it is harder to say. Because of the level and because humanity will likely not be around forever.

I mean some of the issues are pretty massive. I recall hearing the amount of work it took to sense a gravity wave. Impressive, but it is hard to figure out that sort of stuff, not impossible but just very hard and you need to be lucky.

Just merging general relativity with quantum mechanics would be one of the biggest accomplishments ever.

Look Raist bunnies...
