People should wait until we actually understand physics completely before making claims about what is or isn't possible. There are things in the universe that completely defy our understanding of physics, meaning our understanding is flawed or incomplete.

I thinking that both sides tends to jump to conclusions... Well I think it is mostly anti human in space crowd..

Physicists haven't come up with anything logical or easily understandable in several decades. All they have come up with is an increasingly convoluted, nonsensical gibberish that only they can comprehend. The longer we wait, the less we'll be able to understand.

I am going to have to disagree with everything you just said. Physicists have discovered much and have come very far in the last few decades. You not being able to grasp and understand the concepts involved does not mean they are gibberish or nonsensical; it simply means that it takes a certain kind of mind to understand it. There are a lot of things we still don't understand, but every year we understand a little bit more. Conquering physics and truly understanding the universe will be an instrumental part of our progress as a species. The idea that our understanding of physics will diminish over time is truly nonsensical. Do you think they are just making this stuff up?

Have to disagree with you on that one.  Easily understandable - maybe so - but logical, gotta part ways there.
