    China's not the only country trying to do this. They're just the only one trying to do it cheaper with the short, but powerful burst of laser multiplied over.

    Matter vs antimatter is something else. Matter and antimatter destroy each other, but we have an uncountable amount of matter. We are here. There isn't much antimatter. Thus, something caused it so that we are here. The big bang theory states that an equal amount of matter and antimatter were produced. Thus, we shouldn't be here because matter and antimatter destroy each other. However, we have an uncountable amount of matter as I said. Thus, there is evidence for God.

    The point of saying there are no dinosaur bones was to point out that DNA can not be extracted from rock.

    Something you are too ignorant to understand obviously

    Soft tissue preserved millions of years in dinosaur fossils/bones.

    And now they are going to clone dinosaurs

    Must be real if there is an internet link

    I could say that the internet is fake, but that would be an understatement, your mind is controlled as such you think what they tell you

    The age of dinosaurs ended 66 million years ago, the museum might close if not enough morons attend

    Ah, thank you for the astute response. I tend to agree with this from the standpoint of pure brightfield or dark field optics, Abbe’s original equations hold. However, Hell’s rewrite of Abbe’s law establishes new resolution limits based on laser power rather than wavelength and as such represents heretofore recognized potential and is the reason his work received such recognition...and a rewrite of Abbe’s equations to reflect this new understanding.

    We could consider this similar to Newton’s Law of Gravity in view of dark matter. Newton’s Law holds for planetary systems but for intergalactic distances, different equations rule.

    So, we see this in so much of science, that what we consider to be a universal law ends up being actually a special case, limited by our ability to perceive the complete picture. These are the exciting things in science, the the slow but steady tweaking of theory to better reflect reality. Thanks for the comments.

    Blah, blah, woof, woof. Thought I’d try arguing on your level for a bit.

    One additional comment. In case not everyone made it to the end of Krauss’s talk, there was an almost depressing revelation. He projected billions of years into the future, envisioning an advanced race gazing at space. In this time, every galaxy in the universe would have red shifted to invisibility because of the ever increasing velocity of the expansion of the universe. And in this time, scientists of the day, using the best of their knowledge and the best of their technology, would see only their own galaxy, with no indication of anything else in the universe. They’d see a universe, eternal, unending and unchanging. Empirical science would get it wrong. It makes one wonder what else we might be missing.

    You would need several million years of evolution to do that

    It's from Smithsonian, not Infowars. Try to keep up please.
