comment How “unnatural” is the universe?
@ACuriousMind I get your point but finding a pencil in that state is highly unnatural and one could probably even calculate what are the crazy odds of that happening. One could also calculate the odds of physical constants being what they are so I don't think it is primarily opinion-based to ask this question...

comment How are magnetic fields transmitted?
You speak of gravitational waves as if their existence has been proven a long time ago but in reality these waves are one of the predictions of Einstein's general theory of relativity but these waves were never actually detected and we do not know for a fact if they exist or not and how exactly is gravity transmitted and at what speed... correct? As a matter of fact I was always wondering how fast would the earth stop being affected by sun's gravitation after the sun somehow instantly disappeared but we're still very far from answering that question, aren't we?

comment Is there any inherent danger in operating a Thermonuclear Reactor?
According to ITER the temperature needed to start and sustain thermonuclear reaction on earth is 10 times that of the temperature required to do the same at the core of the sun. This temperature is 150 million degrees celsius and while it is clear that this temperature will be localized to an extremely small area it is still a huge temperature and the energy required to achieve and sustain this temperature must be just enormous...

comment Since radioactive material decays how is it possible that there is any left after 4.5 billion years?
Great answer, thanks.

I thought that half-life of U238 is measured in millions of years, if it is about the age of the Earth, that, in combination with some shorter half-life radioactive elements being the products of the decay of other radioactive elements, explains everything. Thanks.
