Template talk:Branches of physics
|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Branches of physics template.
|WikiProject Physics||(Rated Template-class)|
How can you claim that theophysics is a branch of physics. Physics deals with science and is based on experiments and observation. That is something that a religion can never be.
Physics tries to decribe the world that is seen by models whereas theology make models and then incoorperate what is seen in those if it fits. This is totally opposite ways to describe the world and they can not be reconciled. Theophysics(if it is anything) can only be a form of thelogy and should therefore be dropped from this template.

Shouldn't Optics be in the Waves and Fields row?
Considering that light is an electromagnetic wave, and that the core of physical optics is the electromagnetic theory, shouldn't Optics and its sub-branches be grouped alongside Electromagnetism? --188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:34, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
Honestly, I'm not a big fan of the newer version of the template. It omits several fields of physics that were in the original (such as acoustics and accelerator physics). Was this change even discussed somewhere? 'Cause it certainly wasn't in this very talk page. =/ --184.108.40.206 (talk) 04:44, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
- I like it. It organizes the material in a much better way. Accelerator physics is in there: it's in the "Standard model" section. I just added Acoustics. Personally, I'm not a fan of excessively large and unorganized navboxes. This one was due for some pruning.--Srleffler (talk) 05:41, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
- Fair enough. At least it shpuld have been discussed, but I guess I'll have to live with it. --220.127.116.11 (talk) 06:21, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
- I moved "Accelerator physics" out of the Particle physics section because it's not a subfield of particle physics. The Accelerator physics page even clearly distinguishes Accelerator physics and experiments done with particle accelerators. --18.104.22.168 22:47, 8 Febuary 2019 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk)
