Re: Ki energy defined

On the proving the negative. Bertrand Russell once wrote “If I were to suggest that between the Earth and Mars there is a china teapot revolving about the sun in an elliptical orbit, nobody would be able to disprove my assertion”. This was used for decades in arguments with various theists. A good debate was had by all until a few years ago it was put to rest by Dr. Carolyn Porco imaging team leader of the Cassini Probe, who felt obligated to state the obvious. Every teapot, china or otherwise is circling the sun in an elliptic orbit and once a day it is between the Earth and Mars (I am paraphrasing). Trust a female PhD to know where the teapots are buried.
