They can shout down the head of the physics department at Cal Tech.
In science, 'fact' can only mean 'confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent.' I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.
Physics is becoming so unbelievably complex that it is taking longer and longer to train a physicist. It is taking so long, in fact, to train a physicist to the place where he understands the nature of physical problems that he is already too old to solve them.
A consistent pursuit of classical physics forces a transformation in the very heart of that physics.
Physics is the science of all the tremendously powerful invisibilities of magnetism, electricity, gravity, light, sound, cosmic rays. Physics is the science of the mysteries of the universe. How could anyone think it dull?
It's worse than that, it's physics, Jim!
If it doesn't work, it's physics.
Physics is to math what sex is to masturbation.
All science is either physics or stamp collecting.
Geography is just physics slowed down, with a couple of trees stuck in it.
We live in a Newtonian world of Einsteinian physics ruled by Frankenstein logic.
People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.
It is impossible to trap modern physics into predicting anything with perfect determinism because it deals with probabilities from the outset.
A technique succeeds in mathematical physics, not by a clever trick, or a happy accident, but because it expresses some aspect of a physical truth.
That's so stupid it's unbelievable! Mr. Hartman, my high school physics teacher
