I believe with negative refraction the light passes through the object in the same direction, but the way that wave movement in the light appears is backward.

The link in this post from earlier illustrates it well:

If I were lying to everyone I wouldn't have posted the link to the thread.
Thank you for pointing out that I made a small grammatical error while I was pointing out that fact that you are a complete liar. As for your "argument" that the number 2 always represents the same thing, I will stand by every single word that I typed, and I bet I even spelled most of them correctly. If there was one ounce of truth in your blatant malicious lie about me saying that "nothing can be proven", you would paste it here. You can't because I never said anything of the sort. It was an intentional lie when you said it, and it remains so.

With a superior education system, we are able to determine the moment someone is sarcastic and when someone is not. It is one of the fundamentals of the aspects of determining if information is legitment or not. Frankly, you cannot.



If you want to continue to argue against sarcastic posts to fill a personal issue, please continue, but don't throw me into it.

Pages of the same meme post is uncalled for.

OP...I need some ear plugs to keep my liquified brain in my head at this point.

To the "debate" going on I offer my observation:

lordikon: 7775 posts, 436 rep & member since 2-08; 268 post & 9 rep/mo

Jagged_Steel: 135 posts, 4 rep & member since 6-11; only 1 month of data (42 posts from posted thread and this one)

This is how I usually decide how to weigh member's comments, just saying. No, I haven't read it all. Yes I am "blindly" taking a member's comment on faith as factual because 1) a link was posted so if it is BS he'd be called out pretty quick and 2) because of the stats listed above.

Come on, really, we all know what they say about arguing on the internet...

Post count and rep don't mean much.
Post count means you've been more active,rep can be given for a lot of things,some rep for things such as "lol dude that was hilarious,rep".

Wow, if I understand the implications of a negative processor speed correctly, I could get insulted and have lies posted about what I have said before I even type something instead of having to wait a couple of nano-seconds.

And, by the way, I am definitely trying to lighten things up a bit here, so relax if your thinking about jumping all over me about this.....

Please feel free to quote me on where I stated that high school level understanding of such concepts were enough to explain, in full detail, of what is being described in this article.

If anything, with a high school level education, you would be giving a much more proper response then "What is this, I don't even."

Really? Because you were 100% wrong about your previous statement about the speed of light. Well, then, I'd love for you to address claims you make, and back them up with real scientific evidence. Because based on your previous posts, you clearly have absolutely no understanding of the article, no concept of the speed of light or the consequences of the speed of light--yet you want to discuss it as if you did. Your arguments hinged upon multiple obvious misunderstandings, which completely negates your arguments.

HAHA, "petty swipes" at your intellect? They'd be "petty swipes" if I resorted to pointing out your obvious type-o's and grammatical errors. You were spouting 100% incorrect junk, specifically regarding the speed of light and what it means. My opinion of your intellect took a dive when I read your responses which clearly showed you don't know what you're talking about, and then it plummeted when you had to resort to commenting on my username.

If you beleive what you are saying, then you should be satisfied with anything that anybody says. After all, assumptions and unprovable theories are OK in your world.
Do you not get it? Theories are theories because they are supported by scientific fact, and that THEY HAVE NOT BEEN DISPROVED. How about you find proof--backed by scientific understanding rather than mindless drivel--that completely contradicts and disproves a scientific theory. I dare you. The point is that if someone like you mindlessly blabs about "this" and "that" theories being completely wrong and unbelievable, rational people who have a little bit of understanding in the area being discussed will expect proof. So show us your science-based proof.

I don't care if I sound like I'm making "petty swipes" at your (lack of) intellect--you clearly do not know and understand enough about this subject area to competently discuss it. If you brought up one shred of information that had even the slightest relevance and accuracy to the subject matter, I would have considered it. But it's clear you'd rather talk in terms of pseudo-science, and "if I can't measure it, it clearly cannot possibly exist or be true."

Have fun measuring everything just so you can believe it to be true.
