Science is about evidence. Show me testable evidence that time stops in a black hole or it is all just guess and speculation.
it has already been proven, with humans there to observe it, that time moves slower in the gravitational well of warped space. when space is warped so much that density goes to infinity, there is no space, hence no time.

proven fact.

That is tested by the lowly GPS systems that people use every day.

Newtonian physics is not accurate enough for GPS. Without correcting for both the fact that satellites are moving faster, and therefore time is slowed for them, and for the fact that they are not as deep in Earth's gravity well and therefore time is sped up for them, the GPS systems would not have the accuracy that they do.

So if we do not correct at all, they are off. If we only correct for one factor they are still off.

It takes both corrections to get a correct answer.

Time is not slowed or sped up for GPS or satellites. Now it does take just a little time for their information to get here for it is not instantaneous, but time is not either slowed or sped up,,, we call it time to update and get caught up

i just did. i ahve mentioned it many times, you just can't seem to grasp this concept.

perhaps you should take some time off from making a fool of yourself here and try to learn about the topics you attempt to post on...

You haven't shown anything but words. If words are evidence and proven facts then I can say I saw a mermaid and that makes it evidence and proven fact.

no, i have given you verifiable facts about proven, re-testable experiments that show time and space are one.

you are talking about shit you have no clue of and you are looking quite the fool.

you could always research this on your own and find out the truth, why do you not do that and then tell us what you found?

what is your factual basis for believing time can exist without space?

you just don't get it. here is an experiment that humans actually participated in...

if have two watches and you put one on satellite and keep one on the Earth, they will not register the same amount of time. the warping of space time caused by the gravity well of the Earth makes time different here than up there.(as SZ pointed out, there is also the speed of the satellite to take into account...)

time is different in different kinds of space because space and time are one.

seriously, you really need to research this so you don't look like such a rube...

Then those facts and evidence must not have been posted. For all you have shown is simple words. Since you seem to have time, post those verifiable facts and evidence once more.

yes they were, by me and others. we cannot make you able to comprehend them.

again, what is your evidence that time can exist without space?

Show me more than simple words for evidence and facts and we will go from there.

Like I said, someone can say they saw a mermaid but does that make it evidence and fact because someone says so?

OH MY. Some one on another thread called me a smart aleck. I have to go now and cry for a while. I will be back tomorrow night to whine and try to get some pity from you all for that harsh name they called me. Yes that is complete sarcasm!!!!

i gave you an historical experiment that you can verify for yourself.

so, again, what is your factual basis for claiming time can exist without space?

you keep saying that with nothing to back it up. i backed up my claim with verifiable facts known the world wide.

what have you got?

They don't want the answer they want a science explanation of where time came from. Because they can't answer with science they will dodge it.
I wont.

Time, distance, and mass/energy are the fundamentals of physics and cannot be explained by any reference to other quantities. All other things are meaured as a relationship between these three fundamentals. For example acceleration is distance / time / time. You can only grasp the 3 fundamentals immediately and intuitively, by experience. They are foundational.

But that is not the same thing as claiming they are constant. Einstein showed that the rate at which time flows can vary. At the extremes of lightspeed and infinite gravity time stops according to general relativity. Is that correct? We cannot be sure but we DO know that time behaves consistently with Einstein's predictions over the range we can measure so as far as we know it IS correct.

So now I am an atheist. I must be an atheist because I am not a fundamentalist and I accept and use science. Once again I am in awe of the fundamentalist arrogance coupled enthusiastically with ignorance and without the hint of a clue.

And the point of your link is what? That the speed of light slows down as it passes through things then regains it's speed? A man that is running at 17 mph and runs through a wall he as well will slow down but as he goes on he will regain his speed. Nothing in that link said anything about anything making time stand still.
Aura's point, which was very well explained in understandable terms for your bnefit, is that light can slow in RELATION to time, thus stopping time. Your reference to time cannot be compared to light's reference. You should do some research, it's a facsinating topic.

He gave you two examples of how time can be stopped, you idiot.
You are dead wrong time cannot be stopped. There are black holes all over the universe but yet here I am experiencing Time. That's either weird or the two of you are wrong.

I'm guessing that later.
