L-F Poll: Best LENR science news of 2018

  • I guess the use of "belief" and "disbelief" is a semantic issue. In religion, anyway, "belief" implies on faith. That means good evidence is not required. It's a bit confusing to use the same wording in science.

    It's good for proponents of theories to have faith (belief) but it proves nothing. I would have said something like "members who are convinced by evidence that LENR is real."

  • Belief implies many things, including those things held to be true without evidence. However, there are other definitions of belief, including Merriam-Webster's. So yes, semantics is key as always, it just depends on how much you understand its subtleties.

    Belief : conviction of the truth of some statement or the reality of some being or phenomenon especially when based on examination of evidence, i.e. belief in the validity of scientific statements.
