Seriously, you people are so gullible. Some random guy claims to create a device which violates the first and second laws of thermodynamics; said guy dies, and immediately it's murder. Free energy does not exist.

Whoever says oil companies are researching alternatives to oil must be smoking some potent stuff.

Thermodynamics - schmermodynamics. You act like physics isn't a scam or sumfin'. I want my perpetual motion machine!

You really think that in the next few decades they are going to have just as much oil production as they do now? Of course they are investing in alternatives so they can still make money after we run out.

Its the oil companies that have held back this technology... and no doubt will be the main investors and producers of this...

The oil companies will ensure all alt-fuel systems will be under their name...

^^This. Oil companies aren't in the oil business because they just lurve them some oil, they are in the biz because they lurve them some money. If there are other ways to make that money then they'll be all over it.

It is like the DuPont example I put up earlier. They fought against CFCs being banned since it was their cash cow while at the same time researching a replacement. As soon as they found a viable replacement they jumped on the banning bandwagon. Cold hard cash is what makes the world go 'round.

The conservation of inofrmation/energy law states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed.

Disagreeing with this makes you look like a retard...and Stephen Hawking once disagreed with this which is why some people say he is a retard today.

You do realize that just because someone makes a "scientific law" does not mean it is 100% fact.

If disagreeing makes one look like a "retard" then I think the entire world is "retarded".
Including you, seeing how you disagreed with Semyon.

You want to know who's gullible? The people who think the oil companies are actually trying to find alternative energies to replace oil. They're just as gullible as the ones who think the pharmaceutical companies are trying to find cures.
