60The Theory of Relativity cannot be reconciled with the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Search and both [sic] and the lack of reconciliation is striking. The Book of Genesis describes a fundamental underlying uncertainty; the Theory of Relativity denies it.img (FSTDT link)
SamHB:
  • [T]here is a big difference, in scientific and mathematical articles at least, between what is above the Table of Contents (TOC) and what is below. The material above the TOC is the property of Andy. Ordinary people may not change it, however strongly they disagree. I have had a number of my above-TOC changes reverted by Andy. Material below the TOC is maintained by regular contributors, and is generally left alone if it is well-reasoned. Perhaps the best example of this is the end of the first paragraph of E=mc².
  • I did the search, and I don't see a "striking lack of reconciliation". In fact, the 1933 R. C. Tolman paper seems to show that people (much more knowledgeable than I) have thought about such a reconciliation, and have not come to the conclusion that one or the other of those theories must be false.
    Whether Theory X and Theory Y are consistent with each other is not determined by doing a Google search for "Theory X" + "Theory Y". That's not how science works.img
  • Reinhold Niebuhr Quote (well, paraphrase):
    God grant me the serenity to accept the things that are above the table of contents, the courage to change the things that are below it, and the wisdom to know the difference.
    What does that refer to? It refers to the fact that someone recently added some sycophantic rubbish to the Second Law of Thermodynamics page. Fortunately, it was above the TOC, so I didn't have to move it.img

Update: The fake news of the 1919 eclipse, and how media ran with it, hardly seems to be of encyclopedic value in a scientific entry.img

60Like other aspects infinity, the concept of infinitesimal offers a powerful way to solve problems and even handle stress.
The often-scarce resource of time, for example, becomes infinitely abundant if divided into infinitesimal segments.
Jesus introduced the concept of infinite time, or eternity, and infinitesimal time follows from that.img (FSTDT link)

61Pope Francis goes against 2000 years of doctrine by changing the catechism to oppose capital punishment. 😠 Religion needs conservatism, too.img
If only he had opened his mind to the truly conservative bible, such liberal distortions might not have overcome him.
Mystery: If the theory of relativity leads to moral relativism, ... does opposing capital punishment lead to opposing capitalism??? ☭😱☭

60Peter Scholze, Alessio Figalli, Akshay Venkatesh, and Caucher Birkar win the 2018 Fields Medal.
We eagerly await the official announcement of the recipients of the Fields Medal's merit-based alternative — which winners are announced at the same time so that real achievement is recognized — the ConservaMath Medal 2018 2014 (not awarded yet) 2010 (which Ben Green seems to have won, but more nominations and insights are certainly welcome).img Hopefully, neither a woman, nor an Obama-supporter, nor a communist-trained Việt wins (not racist, you politically-correct trickster!), and the liberal claptrap based on the Fields Medal would be eliminated forevermore.

74Infinite descent Wikipedia's W.svg: The insights from an approach of backward descent is hinted at in logic referenced by Jesus: 'Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am."'
Jesus did not say, "I was," as one might expect, but rather "I am." In other words, unlimited infinite descent is available to Jesus, just as multiplication of the loaves is.img

94Andeepak: The wave-particle duality is the same as God being a "wave" as the Holy Spirit, and also being matter in the form of Jesus. A open-minded appreciation of the wave-particle duality of the Trinity could have opened the eyes of scientists nearly 2000 years sooner to the fundamental wave-particle duality of nature discovered in the 1900s.img
Even today a more open-minded recognition of the truth of the Trinity would help scientists understand the reality of wave-duality.img (FSTDT link)

94Conservapedian mathematics: In addition, recognition of infinity — such as infinite time or infinite strength — is helpful on a personal level in dealing with adversity.

Stoneman Douglas High School shooting

99"Special" Forces: Ken DeMyer's SEAL Team Six clumsily shits all overimg the Main Pageimg with regards toimg the ugliness of atheists.img
Mystery: For a wiki whose notable editors release their photographs, why does this particular editor, who writes so much about the physical characteristics of others (notably, obesityimg), not release a photo of himself to the public domain? Was his undignified retreat from the January 2011 debate also partially due to his reluctance to appear on video as part of the debate conditions? As artificial intelligence is increasingly able to guess whether one is gay from a photograph, is  K e n  D o l l , the author of Summa Homosexualita, afraid that his photograph would become a data point in support of Haggard's Law — despite well-publicized attempts to inoculate himself against homosexuality? Are obesity and the opposition to homosexuals serving in the militaryimg reasons why this editor, rather than embarking on a real military career, pathetically attempts to make up for that by referencing notable figures in military history when writing on the Internet, all the while self-loathingly hiding his own face? Is this unwillingness to release his image because of the fear of exposing his own hypocrisy pertaining to physical unattractiveness, obesity and homosexuality, or because of his utter lack of machismo, or both?
