You don't like parsimony? Quoting: Halcyon Dayz, FCD
It's a very useful intellectual tool.
It's a typical fallacy of the quasi-intellectual scientist who prefers easy and simplistic answers to complicated matters.
Inventing unnecessary entities is logical now?
Why do you feel the need to insult every single scientist
I don't insult every scientist ever, surely there are a lot of great ones.
Every scientist worth their money applies Occam's Razor.
It separates the bullcrap from what we actually know.
What I do is looking through the fallacies of many scientists who pretend to be intellectual. Ppl who claim authority and think their subjective truth is the only right one. Quoting: Dutch Coward 32129936
Which has what to do with anything?
Science is not about authority.
Scientists make fun of other scientists if those scientists make claims based on their authority alone.
All that matters are facts and logic.
For sure parsimony is a useful tool for simple scientific matters, not so for unexplained complicated matters, IMO. Quoting: Dutch Coward 32129936
I'm getting a suspicious you don't actually know what the Razor is.
I do regard myself as a sceptic, and a real sceptic is open minded, and doesn't fall for fallacies. Every subject and situation need it's own unique approach. Quoting: Dutch Coward 32129936
What it needs most is facts.
Kudos, although it doesn't resemble crumpled thermal foil. Quoting: Dutch Coward 32129936
Why not? It would explain its asymmetric and weird geometry.
Some types of thermal foil are reflective on one side and black on the other, btw.
Still, you have a good point it could be something from the Orbiter, but why doesn't NASA state and explain this? Quoting: Dutch Coward 32129936
They've got a million of pictures.
No time, no money, to identify everything floating around.
There's always stuff floating around.
In 2009 I mailed them about this object, not suggesting anything, but I didn't get a reply. According to NASA labeling it space debris does suffice I guess... Quoting: Dutch Coward 32129936
They know space debris, they made a lot of it.
