Two intriguing signals spotted in a small gravitational-wave detector could represent all kinds of exotic phenomena — from new physics to dark matter interacting with black holes to vibrations from near the beginning of the universe.
Deductive reasoning is a way to use logic to deduce the answers to questions, but it's also used to deduce which questions we should be asking. We use a technique which we call deductive questioning.
Here's a scary thought: if the beggar was carried by angels into Abraham's bosom, in a chamber in the lower mantle which overlooks hell, did other angels carry the rich man to the lip of the chamber and toss him into hell?
Circumstantial evidence is when two things happen at the same time which may or may not be related, but we decide to use one as evidence for what we believe about the other.
There are a lot of variables involved in attempting to correlate news reports of tragic deaths with gravitational wave detections. We're dealing with circumstantial evidence for one.
Ten people were killed in a Saudi-led coalition airstrike on a suburb in the capital Sanaa on Monday, medical sources and residents said.
At least 12 people were killed and 10 injured in Egypt's southwestern desert Sunday when security forces mistakenly fired on a group of Mexican tourists, Egyptian officials said.
The Greek Coast Guard recovered the bodies of 34 migrants, including 15 children, on Sunday in the Aegean Sea after their wooden boat flipped over in strong winds as it attempted the short but often perilous crossing from nearby Turkey.
Indian police said on Sunday they were hunting for the owner of illegally stored explosives which accidentally detonated in the centre of a crowded town, killing at least 88 people.
A common response to the human soul is that there isn't one because science can't detect it. However, we first detected gravitational waves in 2015. What else can't science detect? We don't know, science can't detect it.
