RE: The "laws" of "nature"
Not to worry. Idiot Squared never went to school, and he's rewriting the dictionary, and stomping his 2 year old feet, demanding the entire world agree with his new definitions, or he will have a tantrum. Since he's an old man, I suspect he will never outgrow his terrible twos. No matter what anyone says, he will evade and redefine. Note he will never define first, as that's his fucking stupid little game. He's so predictable. Weeping
(He has what's known as a "passive aggressive personality disorder".)

Prediction: Posters here will imply "he is questioning x so he must believe in y."

Laws of nature may refer to...
Physical law, a scientific generalization based upon empirical observation
- here's a wiki on that.
Natural law, any of a number of doctrines in moral, political and legal theory
- and a wiki on that.

Nature generally refers to the material world.
Natural "laws" refer to the scientific description of regularities in the material world which are so regular they have never been observed to be broken.

This is information any grade schooler should know. People are insulting you because they don't believe you are really that ignorant. They probably assume you have a basic education and are therefore trolling.

Conservation laws are artifacts of symmetries. Google Noether's theorem if you want to learn more.

Dictionary.com Wrote:na·ture
[ney-cher] Show IPA
noun
1.
the material world, especially as surrounding humankind and existing independently of human activities.
2.
the natural world as it exists without human beings or civilization.
3.
the elements of the natural world, as mountains, trees, animals, or rivers.
4.

Wikipedia Wrote:Nature, in the broadest sense, is equivalent to the natural, physical, or material world or universe. "Nature" refers to the phenomena of the physical world, and also to life in general. It ranges in scale from the subatomic to the cosmic.

Given the above definitions of nature, and this definition of "law" (in scientific terms)
Wikipedia also Wrote:A scientific law is a statement based on repeated experimental observations that describes some aspect of the world. A scientific law always applies under the same conditions, and implies that there is a causal relationship involving its elements.

I think you can work it out yourself.

RE: The "laws" of "nature"
Laws of nature are mathematical descriptors of theories of nature. Aka, the Law of Gravity =/= Theory of gravity, but the Law of Gravity is based upon the Theory of Gravity.

Do you have an actual question?

What is your agenda with spamming the science forum?

Gravity is a law of nature. Is that what you are claiming?

The Law of Gravity is a mathematical description of the Theory of Gravity. (that is almost verbatim from my previous post)
