    Although I cannot understand at the moment as to how the mechanism works, but thanks for the info on E-Ship and similar airplanes. Need to find out more. :)
    Edit: Got the idea. 5-20% fuel saving. Can be used for stabilization. :)

    Evolution can't be proven, that's why it's a theory. If it were something that could be proven, it would be a scientific law as opposed to a theory... like the law of gravity.

    Did you had any science education in your school? Evolution is a well-established theory. Of course, removing of creases always goes on in all science.

    Welcome aboard!

    I've heard it said there's no such thing as gravity...the world just sucks.

    The 'Law of Gravity' as defined by Newton says the force of gravity (F) between two objects equals the masses of the two objects (m1& m2) multiplied together, divided by the square of the radius of the distance between their two centres (r squared) and then multiplied by the gravitational constant (G)

    So gravity is defined as the attractive force between two objects. But there are several theories about what gravity actually is -- the prominent one being Einstein's General Theory of Relativity.

    Although the GTR has been demonstrated and is used all the time, it is still called a theory. It is falsifiable: which means it could (in theory) be proved wrong. Quantum theory is the same: it workes in practice, until it fails or something better comes along

    In fact I believe there are no 'proofs' in science, only (experimental) evidence?

    If gravity is a law, then what exactly is gravity? How come we cannot make artificial gravity? Some vague little particles called "gravitons" was postulated at one time, I think that answer is now out of favor...and since postulate is a step below hypothesis, which is below theory, which is below law, it would seem "law of gravity" is misnamed.

    The only thing we actually know about gravity is the effect, but what exactly gravity is remains a mystery. Even Einstein was not able to develop a Unified Field Theory of Relativity that was able to fully account for gravity.

    What year is this? Will we ever be done with flat-earthers?

    They don't bother me nearly as much as those that think the universe revolves around themselves.

    Ok. I hope you don't think I understand it much, lol ...
    Yes.
    Who says that Standard Model physics is the only way to understand the universe?

    Western music understands music on it's own terms, centred around middle C and all the scales and keys and minors that proceed from that quantization -- but Indian music, and African music and Arabic music, all proceed from a different root understanding, which although differently and independently quantized, is absolutely valid?

    BINGO!!!!

    Finally someone gets it. I've been saying this for years around here and all I get are eye rolls.

    People who don't understand or choose not to understand think that they understand. :)
    Which is the other way? A great magician appeared from nowhere and snapped his fingers six times, and lo, there was the universe with perfect animals and imperfect humans created out of mud and ribs, and then the ever-loving and merciful magician sent them to earth along with disasters and diseases? He was so tied after snapping his fingers six times that he rewsted on the seventh day. :D

    Well, the Hindu God had only to utter "Ekoham, bahusyami", and there was the universe - I am one, I will be many.

    In the beginning was the Word....

    What you are calling "finger snaps" was G-d "uttering the Word," and it was so. Interesting, that our two beliefs agree on this matter. ;)
