    Looking for: A debate on a physics or math topic

    I might not find anyone, but I was wondering if anyone wanted to do a one-on-one debate for physics or math. There would have to be a disagreement between us, so I would likely be arguing for pro-physics position, so you would probably need to argue some non-standard position. BTW, I'd do a philosophy of science topic, too, if you wanted. We'd need to setup some ground rules first, however.

    Unfortunately I don't have anything like the time to take a serious issue with you. But it might help someone else if you had some suggestions on areas or topics that might attract their attention. Possibility of time travel, nature of light, something like that.

    I'm certainly unqualified for such a debate but I hope to followone if its not too difficult .
    Mathematics is a language in its self but as far as I can make out it has its limitations.
    The brilliant mind of Kurt Godel proved this in his incompleteness theorem. It certainly was enough to upset Steven Hawking who wondered if physics itself was limited.
    Kurt Godel was an unfortunate man who had a great friend in Einstein. He starved himself to death in the belief somebody was trying to poison him.
    Sorry I digress good luck with your search.
