To the "how many planets in our solar system?" Still nine.

Lincoln posed this riddle once: "How many legs does a dog have? Four. How about if you call his leg a tail? Still four. Calling something by a different name doesn't change what it is."

if pluto is a planet, then so are some moons in our solar system...

Wow, good thing they changed and rechecked the definition of a planet compared to a planetoid/dwarf planet, instead of simply renaming it.

If we count pluto as a planet we have to count all the other dwarf planets as planets.

Except that is an argument against your own point. It was never a planet, we just called it one. It'd be like if we had always said that a dog had 5 legs and then realized one day that the back one was, in fact, not a leg.

So we have 12 planets then, right?
You're going to start including Haumea, Makemake and Eris into the number of planets?

Imagine if we had been saying dogs had five legs the whole time, then someone discovered that the back leg was actually a tail and people got pissed off and refused to accept it?

It's not that it's been called something different, it's classified as something different... It's not a classified as a planet anymore and therefore isn't one.

Just to back up this guy. Pluto was called a planet, but by current day definition it is not a planet. It is in fact a 'Plutoid'. It has to meet certain conditions to be considered a planet, and Pluto doesn't meet them all because it doesn't have enough mass.

So really Pluto by name may have been a planet, but by definition it is objectively NOT planet.

It's like a dog has 4 legs and 2 tails but we called the 2nd tail it's 5th leg. Now we classified it correctly as a 2nd tail instead of a 5th leg.

In Germany it would be even 999.999.999.999 because we have the following system:

10^3 = thousand
10^6 = million
10^9 = "Milliarde"
10^12 = billion
10^15 = "Billiarde"
...

The universe is not infinite.
It's expanding.
We'd encounter oblers paradox in your argument. There are not an infinite amount of planets as there isn't an infinite amount of particles/antiparticles. Plus the universe is expanding anyway.

Also, Cosmic background radiation helps further prove it by having uniform temperature in all direction, of about 2.7k, which is also the temperature the radiation is calculated to be from the transparent stage of the universe, to the current day now - implying that the universe expanded for the radiation to cool, when using general relativity & thermodynamics.

Perhaps. It depends on the shape of the universe. We can determine it from the critical speed & density, but only with some accuracy. Read a brief history of time if you want to truly understand more (it explains it in an easier style to understand), besides it's been quite a while since I've done physics at school, soI'd of forgotten some things.

I think there are some religious/old school thinkers here that like to believe in the older school of thought that the universe is infinite. Even with evidence disproving it, that or they're just people who think they understand anything n the topic because someone told them about it, without any physics background/knowledge on the topic; ill advisement.

It's almost as annoying as thinking that the earth is the centre of the solar system.

It's weird how in physics we were so busy thinking about whether the universe is flat open or closed I never realised that so many people still are behind in debating whether it's expanding or not when there's so much evidence that is observed.

No, most, if not nearly all the scientific community, aside from those who love divine intevention and their creationism, believe that the universe is expanding.

All the theorems for infinite universes have been disprove and don't work. The observations also disprove them. I guess the general population who have any idea of the topic that think the universe is infinite are miseducated/educated from much older sources.

Thankfully we are still thinking the flat open or closed topic. It's difficult to accurately measure the critical density anyway. I think a closed universe would be cool, as it gives rise to the possibility of another big bang following our end.

Ha! Girls always go for the "creep" as you say. They want a guy who knows what he wants and tells them about it. No messing around playing nice and being someone "responsible", they can get those anywhere when they're ready to settle down. Under the age of 30 they want someone exciting, dangerous, fun. You know, a real man?
