Why do so few of the experts at "physics911" have advanced degrees in engineering or physics?

    Because you do not even need a science degree to perform some of the tasks involved in studying the "physics of 911." You need web designers and account and other miscellaneous staff. You need non-PhD's to handle the computing and development the equipment/techniques for data acquisition. Also, a degree is just a piece of paper. It does not limit you to a particular field. Someone who studies biology can turn and study Physics.

    Source(s): Forgive me if I sound a bit sarcastic. I think the physics911 idea is dumb.

    The fact of the matter is the playing feel is level and women still can not compete against men in a female dominated industry. The reason is not because of inferiority but because women don't stress away and to build the future industries that are needed to make this country grow you must have a pioneers vision. Which is not an easy thing mind you. The only woman to touch the mountain tp on this planet is J.K. Rowlings. If more women took advice from her instead of say paris hilton we'd be able to talk some business. But instead it remains a mute point and J.K. i'm afraid is a one of a kind. There are plenty of things that women can do well but they seem to misread key details habitually because of hubris. women don't respect their position because they haven't really competed. women haven't had to starve for years in order to succeed on a promise to your self. their careless with your achievements. women flaunt them. But they really don't appreciate it. I can tell because no one respects anything unless they do it the absolute hard way and conquer the mountain top. Those men have real power. They are what us men call "the doer." "The doer" has learned how hard it is to achieve greatness therefore having more appreciation for those who acquire success through sacrifice. They don't ask anyone for help. They do it themselves. The pc the very thing your looking at was invented cause a man had an idea in a garage and he stressed away for a decade putting it together. This is concrete. you can touch it right now to see for your self. I'm not lying. Go ahead touch it. But the problem is women don't sacrifice so technically they don't really have the power. they can convince anyone of anything but not themselves. Because if what women say is true and they are free than they are free to go out and invent the flying automobile. But i guarantee you 100% that the next big thing will not invented by a woman. Certainly not the flying car which is 85 years away. And that's being generous. I mean we can go on and on about what if's and myths and legends all day i write for a living and i love a good debate but the fact of the matter is that women haven't proven themselves in anything. because they give into their weaknesses too easily which only means that the future that men have set up for women will be undone by women waiting for men to ultimately invent the next big holly$hit moment. Where are their steve jobs Mark Zukerbergs, Gandhi's barrack Obama's Tolstoy's, mark Bransons, Wright Brothers, Albert Einsteins, JFK's, Eisenhower, Martin Luther Kings?... My point exactly nuff said.

    Well, if they actually knew what they were talking about, it would not satisfy the CTs. This is for the lunatic fringe to use as a source. Only for those who don't want facts to spoil their fantasies.
