Hey, let's start a thread about sub-atomic particles. We could make it a poll. What's your favorite particle? Boson, meson, graviton or neutrino? Are you more of a gluon fan or a gluion fan? Have you had your neutrino sterilized? What's your spin? Have you had a quark today? Bye now, I'm off to the monopole on my tachyon.

(obviously I've got Wikipedia open in another window)

I don't have a favorite, but the amounts of effort and ingenuity that goes into the study of neutrinos just completely fascinates me. The massive underground projects and ultra-sensitive devices used to detect and record them is just incredible.

I wonder if they use sterile neutrinos? You'd think putting those poor guys in that beam would fry their you-know-whats. If they're not sterile before, they sure are after.

I'll stay out of this one. Relativity and theoretical physics are wonderfully intriguing but when you get down to quantum area, my head spins

Whats the difference between a truth and a law?
post #36 of 38
Good question!! Seems to me you suffer undesirable consequences going against in both cases. Off the top, I'd venture a truth is something that exists, whereas a law is created.

OK, this thread digressed a bit.I would challenge people to read "The Secret History" by Donna Tartt. It is (partly) about the study of ancient Greece and ancient Greeks. And this question is pretty much central to the plot of the book.As far as Romans believing the same as the Greeks, that is a moot point because Rome as we are speaking of it was founded by Aneas (sp?), one of the sole survivors from the Trojan War.

There is a lot of myth and legend regarding the founding of Rome. In Roman tradition/legend the city was founded by two brothers, Romulus and Remus, on the hills surrounding the banks of the Tiber River.

Rome turned it's attention east towards Greece and Macedon after becoming aware of the Hellenistic states during the Punic wars with Carthage. The Greek culture had a profound impact on the Romans, especially in regards to philosophy, education and religion (many of the Gods and Goddesses were the same, some differences were in names only). When it comes to the western world, no civilization has had a greater and as far reaching of an impact than that of the Romans.
