Re: The devil

That is not correct, it simply would not exist. If all that was there was zero space then all that would exist would be zero.

Whether an infinite density singularity can exist or not, that's missing the point. The point is that the [more]

Extrapolation of the expansion of the universe backwards in time using general relativity yields an infinite density and temperature at a finite time in the past

That is untrue and quite demonstrably so. It is the other end of

Re: Boiling Water

Generally it's better to use the electrical energy close to its source

That'll be why cords on new kettles and toasters seem to be getting shorter and shorter!

Re: Quantum Coherence

So when we drink a glass of water we're actually drinking a chemical cocktail of hydroxonium/water.

If there's hydroxonium in it, then obviously yes. And if there isn't, then no.

Also intra-cellular water and [more]

When water freezes its called ice, people still say frozen water - yes, because it is water (H2O)

Oh no, it's not just a case where knowledge might change - knowledge obviously does, and GCSE chemistry has certainly moved on a bit even since I did it. No, it's a basic misuse of fundamental definitions [more]

Re: Quantum Coherence

Is that the theory that you think is nonsense?

So, let me see, the claim is that EZ water is a fourth phase of water, which is not H2O but H3O2?
