The old SDC had several wonderful threads of discussion. Many of them had resulted in breakthroughs in our collective understanding of the universe around us.<br /><br />Now, it is up to all of us to reconstruct this great resource. To this end, let's employ one of the great psycological breakthroughs of our time: recovered memories.<br /><br />Please post some of your favorite SDC theories here.

Most of the rocks imaged by the Spirit lander are fossils.

It is possible to turn a cluster into quantum foam in just over a week ( Earth days ).

Oh good god I'd forgotten about the electric sun/universe threads from way back. I remember arguing with whoever it was that was posting those theories for a few days before giving up on it. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

"Whether the universe was created for us." is one that comes to mind.

Ahh, I forgot about the antropic principle threads (that's what they're called).<br /><br /><br />I'd say the BB debate thread..but they're way to many to consider singly. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p align="center"><font color="#c0c0c0"><br /></font></p><p align="center"><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">--------</font></em></font><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">--------</font></em></font><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">----</font></em></font><font color="#666699">SaiphMOD@gmail.com </font><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">-------------------</font></em></font></p><p><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">"This is my Timey Wimey Detector.  Goes "bing" when there's stuff.  It also fries eggs at 30 paces, wether you want it to or not actually.  I've learned to stay away from hens: It's not pretty when they blow" -- </font></em></font><font size="1" color="#999999">The Tenth Doctor, "Blink"</font></p> </div>

That's an Oldie all right!

Oh you mean the great G_Webber? Not only did he like his mars oceans but also his comet planetary nucleus "theory" and his 10 km martian creature.

exactly. I skimmed those mostly, in efforts to keep it civil. there was a lot of give and take in that thread! quite impressive how close to melt down it would get without ever quite getting there. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p align="center"><font color="#c0c0c0"><br /></font></p><p align="center"><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">--------</font></em></font><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">--------</font></em></font><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">----</font></em></font><font color="#666699">SaiphMOD@gmail.com </font><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">-------------------</font></em></font></p><p><font color="#999999"><em><font size="1">"This is my Timey Wimey Detector.  Goes "bing" when there's stuff.  It also fries eggs at 30 paces, wether you want it to or not actually.  I've learned to stay away from hens: It's not pretty when they blow" -- </font></em></font><font size="1" color="#999999">The Tenth Doctor, "Blink"</font></p> </div>

the thread called "you are paged yales" or something like that, revealing dingo's rogue intrusion theory.<br /><br />The Titan unveiled thread was a very good source of info. Hope this will b e resumed.<br /><br />Also, voyagerwsh's Europa thread (I think it was his)

"The Future of our Sun related to the Andromeda collision"<br /><br />It would die for months, and then paulharth would resurrect it yet again.<br /><br />But there have been really good threads as well, such as "missing photon energy", "Urban Astronomy" (there is now Urban Astronomy II, thankfully!), "Want to know why the moon is moving away?", and more.

Don't forget the classic thread on the 10-km sized horse fossil which lied along an old riverbead on Mars. And, the fossil was at risk of falling in and being lost..... <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature" align="center"><em><font color="#0000ff">- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -</font></em> </div><div class="Discussion_UserSignature" align="center"><font color="#0000ff"><em>I really, really, really miss the "first unread post" function.</em></font> </div> </div>
