    Hello and welcome to the Science Forum!

    Which branches of science are you interested in?
    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    Hello and thank you!
    Mainly Biology. Evolution and Genetics. To be honest, I have a very basic knowledge and can't keep up with most of you. But I do have some theories that I have developed and I would like to share them here, if I ever get the courage.

    Those are indeed interesting topics.

    I encourage you to share your idea(s), but you have to keep two things in mind. First, you must add proper sources for your idea(s), as members are keen on verifying your statements. Second, if you present your idea(s), do expect criticism but do not take it personal (despite the fact that the line between scientific scrutiny and insults may seem thin from time to time).

    If you pluck up the courage to post your idea(s) but you are not certain where to post them, it is advisable to contact a Moderator.

    You could opt for that.
    However, as YouTube videos are frowned upon as a format, you should not be surprised if they advice you to write and to summarize your idea(s).

    Few people here bother to watch videos 1.
    A written summary at the least would be better.

    1 Except for, presumably, porn blockbuster Hollywood movies.

    I feel that my theory is better explained in a visual way. But I understand the not wanting to watch a video. So I'll see what I can do. Maybe post the video for the one or two who are willing to watch and then find a way to do it the right way. I'm not very good at this.

    Hello, Sandra, and I likewise bid you welcome to this forum. I look forward both to your video and a brief executive summary of it's contents.

    I will watch most videos that are a few minutes in length. If they are more than ten minutes, they need to be engaging from the beginning to get and hold my attention. There's just too many interesting things to check out....Squirrel!!!
