Title: "light bulbs"?
Post by: faceonfire on November 08, 2010, 09:47:32 PM
I believe light bulbs are actually darkness absorbers! Instead of burning out they get "full" of darkness! You can test this by putting your hand under a light and see the darkness gather on the other side of your hand where you're blocking it from entering the absorber!

Semantics. This is just as legitimate as saying a ice cube gives off cold rather than absorbs heat.

So if all light sources are actually absorbers, then where does the light come from in the first place?

Light is the absence of dark. This is the equivalent of asking where all the dark comes from.

It is an interesting mindfuck. The only difference is that dark cant be emitted.  Funny.

Turn off your light. Darkness will fill the room.

Turn off your light = Turn on your darkness emitter.

Darkness comes from a lack of light.

It's called a shadow.

I guess it is like the difference between current flow and electron flow in electronics. Funny thread.

No it isn't. In the case of electron flow, current flows in the opposite direction to the electrons because the electrons have an electric charge opposite to that of conventional current. In the case of light rays, there is no opposite to light; only its absence. Trekky's analogy of an ice cube giving off cold is more appropriate.

To further this ridiculousness:

The Universe is naturally filled with electromagnetic waves, and Darkness removes them as it shines throughout the cosmos.

It's true I tried it, a scientist friend of mine found that by creating a vacuum darkness dissipates, thus, light is the emission of darkness. SO dark absorbers it is! Open your eyes non believers! you can test it. :o

Wow....Current flow is just a convention, not an intrinsic property lol.

I have no idea what part of my post gave you the impression I did not know that, but I would suggest you learn to read.

It's called "Dark Sucker Theory" and has  been around for a while.

Yea, there is my proof... nothing (and no one) on this site are serious about what they are posting.   

Good laugh and mind exercise, tho.

The guy has 16 posts and you're using holding him up as a holotype for all FEers?

Certainly, his post fits the "discussions" here very well:  A two or three sentence post of pseudo scientific nonsense, with no defense offered when challenged.

You guys are fun - now that I "get it".

No, you don't get it at all. You get it less now than when you were bewildered and angry.

I was bewildered, but not angry.


And I DO get it.   ;)    (Kinda wish I hadn't caught on so fast - it was a fun day today, thinking I'd found a home of the fabled "Flat Earthers".)

false.

temperature is the relative "excitement" of molecules.
light is a physical thing, not a quality of other things

What do you mean? this is as real as it gets, the last stop on the line. there is no other site. At least it was intended to be a real site
