But if one does call in, the officials certainly would listen, check the footage for the player the tosser is claiming has an infraction, and decide if it's a prank or not.
Yes, and that's what also happens in science discussions too. People with the knowledge can decide if the person is "pranking" or otherwise unqualified and dismiss their claim. The thing about golf tournaments is that only golf enthusiasts would call in - it's self selecting. But with science, every precious snowflake has decided their ideas are worth as much as someone who dedicate their life to scientific research.
Nobody checks their claims, until the clamor builds to a roar.
Yeah they do. And every crackpot theory has been found wanting, and even debunked multiple times. But all a precious snowflake has to do is to disregard to explanations given and just repeat and repeat. So then the mainstream science crowd are pretty much justified in insulting the peope who, frankly, started the insults first by pretending that their uneducated opinions are equal to scientists.
I'm asking for proof of the claim that "Science" is the only major area:
And yet, as you clearly quoted, that WASN'T the claim, as I clearly said:
science is still the major, if not only
That doesn't claim it's the only. The clue is in the "if not only". Standard English sentence construction.
As these results are based entirely on statistical evidence, not on any direct link between tidal forces and actual quakes, they are quite uncertain and unproven.
Given that the article does not say tidal forces CAUSE quakes, this cushioning is completely unnecessary. They're only noting a suggestion of a link between tidal forces and the magnitude of the quake - not the occurrence/non-occurrence of a quake.
And something being "based entirely on statistical evidence" does not invalidate or weaken anything. It is the quality of the statistical evidence, not the mere use of statistical evidence, that would invalidate or weaken a claim.
It seems that more and more mathematicians are using a new, high level language named "research student".
