    Too many people believe the saying if you cant see it. it does not exist.
    Science needs to look for rays past or in between info red, micro and radio
    and beyond the X-ray Gamma-ray spectrum. Experimenting to find part
    of the spectrum we have not found should answer many questions.

    Please cite examples to demonstrate that too many people believe the saying if you cannot see it, it does not exist.
    Demonstrate that at least 25% of the population do not believe in air.
    Demonstrate that at leaast 25% of the population do not believe in sound.
    If you cannot do this please shut up and go away.

    Further demonstrate that any scientist believes such a stupid statement.
    If you cannot do this please shut up and go away.


    The electromagnaetic spectrum is continuous. Please explain, with detailed mathematics, exactly how anything could be between elements of the current spectrum.
    If you cannot do this please shut up and go away.

    Actually, it's quantized into units of Planck's Constant. 6.626 * 10^-32 J, or there abouts.

    Newave, you don't have to 'shut up and go away' as Ophi has put it, however your suggestions are strangely naive-sounding. I would suggest that you need to do some research on the subject matter (the EM spectrum) and on the scientific method more generally before you approach the topic again. And if I were you I would start asking questions of our very knowledgeable users rather than making pronouncements, which are likely to annoy them. Your statements imply that you think physicists are closed minded, dismissive of things not easy to detect and not intelligent or creative enough to look for something that is actually conceptually very simple practically very easy to find. In short, you're sort of insulting them. Continue doing that and you can expect reactions like Ophi's to be the norm, and with good cause.
