People Don't Like When I Point On Their Errors.

I used to frequently point at flaws in scientists calculations (mainly during conferences and peer reviews, and sometimes in published papers). If you would know how many presentations and publications are based on incorrect assumption.

But authors did not like that, and despite evidence often did not want to give up their "pet theories".

Kind of same as with you: you still firmly belive in "allmighty being" despite all clear evidences to inverse.

Also, psychology of people is selfish. They view me as an enemy (to some degree) who wants to ruin their authority. Thus I was just gaining enemies.

So I learned that it is not good to correct them (at least openly or directly). Indeed, at rare exceptions it is a waste of time.

So, now I am more tolerant to mistakes. Becoming mature, you know.


About SAP. Why do you need atomic structures for life? Why not nuclear, or neutrino, (or other particles which come to existense at different constants)?

Also, how do you know that constants are NOT related (that you can only change one making atom unstable while all of them will change making just change in size of atom)?
