IV.1.c) Physics research
The physics research should be a science that presents less problems because of the subject matter it studies. In principle, if Newton’s apple falls to the ground, it falls regardless of the ideologies or interests of any kind. However, if it is analyzed in greater depth, it will be revealed that the theories and knowledge of physics have changed throughout history, and at times, completely disproving the previous theory.
Some apples have fallen even after thousands of years, like the dance of the planets and the sun.
Galileo and the Inquisition
The biggest problem of the physics research is the new theories because basic definitions are never deductive and they deal with the unknown. There will always be a set of alternative theories proposing solutions more or less adventurous, and the population in general will take years or decades to assimilate the complexity of its era.
An illustrative example of the topic is the ancient witches in which we all have the concept of the pseudo-scientific explanations that were invented in order to gain power in the tribe. But if we analyze it from the point of view of their era, we would then realize that they were actually true modern scientists.
Let’s look next at some concepts of General Physics and Modern Physics that, in my opinion, attack common sense and distort the methodology of science by dulling the argumentation in the subject matter.
As a general rule, it can be said that speaking about the negative elements in physics research unfolds the brain limits in complex reasoning.

If the research methods in General Physics are affected by some concepts, in Modern Physics the examples are more abundant, such as those that we will see from the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. Numerous problems of the theory with the scientific method are thoroughly discussed in the on-line book on the Theory of Relativity, Elements, Kriticism (Trek)
It is not that the Theory of Relativity of Einstein is false, but that it has some fairly correct and some very incorrect aspects, but above all else it is one of the theories that most unnaturally complicates the knowledge of reality and the progress of science.
As was expected, the maximum exponent of the degradation of the scientific research methods is contained in the physics’ theories of the last generation that give the impression of struggling to see which says something more surprising. It is what happens when placing the usefulness as this philosophical base of the scientific method.
It is always encouraging when the scientific community declares the Theory of Relativity incompatible with Quantum Mechanics.
In the context of the most famous physics theories of Modern Physics, some aspects related to the scientific research method will now be discussed.
