Round Earth and Millenials
PSI Blog 20180418 Round Earth and Millennials
Lately I have been holding out hope that the younger generation would be more receptive to Infinite Universe Theory than the old-timers who grew up with the propaganda spread by the likes of Hawking and deGrasse. Now I am not so sure....
Millennials (those between 18 and 24) have been in the news lately, and not always in a good way. Here are the results from a survey asking the question: “Is the Earth round?” Only 66% got it right, while 94% of those over 55 got it right. Correct answers were a function of age. Agnosticism and flat-Earth belief decreased with age. Thanks be to Jerry Coyne for this heads up:
Much of the skepticism was associated with religious miseducation. It looks like we have a long way to go, what with the deplorable state of education in the USA. I guess if you accept religion without question and believe Earth is flat, you also can believe the entire universe exploded out of nothing.
On the other hand...
Look what group on Facebook has our biggest fans:
Now, if we only could get young women to be as curious about the universe as the young men...

Virtual Nonsense from Physical Review Letters
Blog 20180321 Virtual Nonsense from Physical Review Letters
always amazes me what you can get published in mainstream journals purporting
to be “scientific.”
to reader Piotr Łapiński who writes:
must some kind of break-even point someday for all of that nonsense...”
deniers have invented “virtual particles” (particles that don’t really exist or
that fluctuate between existence and nonexistence or are simply imagined) to
explain some of their calculations derived from Big Bang Theory. This article,
filled with the usual gobbledygook, has several critical errors. Can you spot
them? The “scientific” article referenced is behind a pay wall. Is that so
taxpayers can’t check on what our money has been squandered on? Only saving
grace: This gibberish did not come from the USA, although Physical Review
Letters is published by the American Physical Society.

is a nice demonstration proving that Einstein was wrong about space being
completely empty. Cosmic objects travel through what NASA calls a medium
consisting of “protons, electrons, atoms, molecules, and other matter.” Nonetheless,
this is an improvement on the news reports of the detection of gravity waves in
the LIGO experiment.
my first comment on LIGO (Blog
20160217) I wrote: “we can now give up the idea that space is empty. The
experiment confirms that AETHER MUST EXIST. The press reports
stating that the waves travelled through perfectly empty space via compression
and decompression are ludicrous. That could never happen. All wave motion
requires a medium. That is why Einstein’s corpuscular theory of light is
equally ludicrous. Wave motion without a medium is like having water waves
that in the NASA video, the “bow wave” is like the wave that appears in front
of a boat. It also is like the “pilot wave” that occurs when particles move
through the unacknowledged aether in Quantum Mechanics. Now that the NASA folks
admit that a universal medium exists, isn’t it time that they admit that
Einstein’s Untired Light Theory (which depends on
space being perfectly empty) has been falsified? That one
admission would forthwith destroy the expanding universe interpretation and the
Big Bang Theory with it.

Climont, Jean, 2018, The worldwide list of alternative theories and critics
is my review:
to Jean de Climont for such a wonderful compilation of those of us involved in
what is destined to be the last Cosmological Revolution. While the accuracy of
the descriptions of the various theories and theorists has much to be desired,
it is still a magnificent achievement. Trying to figure out what some of these
folks are proposing is no easy task. As Jean mentions, the variations in theory
seem overwhelming—indicating, of course, that the opposition to the Big Bang
Theory, relativity, and quantum mechanics is in even more disarray than the
regressive physicists and cosmogonists promoting the mainstream propaganda. One
suggestion: It would be a big improvement if those listed could have an easy
way of correcting what was written about them and their ideas.

Doppler Effect explained
PSI Blog 20180124 Doppler
Abhishek Chakravartty asks
a good question:
“On page 33 of IUT, you
wrote that when the train is coming toward us, the sound of its whistles have
short wavelength and when it is going away from us, the sound of its whistles
have long wavelength. Can you explain why?”
[First, the Doppler
Effect only occurs in a medium, which has an existence relatively independent
of whatever microcosm moves through it. Second, a microcosm exhibiting cyclic
behavior will disturb the macrocosm of the medium at regular intervals.
As an example, suppose
you are a drummer on an open-air train that is stationary. If you hit the drum
every second, the surrounding atmosphere will conduct the sound of that drum at
1-second intervals. People both fore and aft will measure an interval of 1
second. However, when the train is moving, the “fore” people will measure (e.g.,
hear) a shorter interval than the “aft” people. This is because, after the
first drum beat, the train will be closer to the “fore” people when the second
drum beat occurs. The travel path will be reduced. The opposite happens at the
rear of the train. This is because, after the first drum beat, the train will
be farther from the “aft” people when the second drum beat occurs. The
travel path will be increased.
path shortening produces a decrease in wavelength and an increase in frequency
otherwise known as a “blueshift.” Travel path lengthening produces an increase
in wavelength and a decrease in frequency otherwise known as a “redshift.”
These effects were
observed in Sagnac’s classic experiment confirming the existence of the aether
Ch. 15.1). They were reconfirmed in the Hafele-Keating experiment in which
cesium beam clocks were flown around Earth in opposite directions (IUT, Ch.
15.6). Note that, because regressive physicists assume there is no aether
medium, the redshifts encountered in the so-called “proofs of relativity” are
interpreted as evidence for “time dilation.” This is unfortunate because time
is motion and motion cannot dilate—only things can dilate.]

Universe Theory." The microcosm in the center is moving left.

they put into print and money and intellect going down this dead end journey
down the Einsteinian rabbit hole. How much insanity can they take before they
take stock and change course?:
said Jessie. This stems from Einstein’s objectification of motion. It all fits with our
claim that a regressive physicist, by definition, does not know what time is.
Time is motion and cannot be bent. Only
things can be bent. The imagined perfectly empty space would have no properties
and could not be bent. The imagined space-time could not be bent either. This fantasy
is where the much ballyhooed “wormholes” come from. Egads! This is what it
takes to get into CERN?

Many thanks to all the
reviewers who helped improve the manuscript. Of course, each of them can expect

Here is the book pitch:
Universe Theory presents the ultimate alternative to the Big Bang Theory and
the common assumption that the universe had an origin. Author Glenn Borchardt
starts with photos of the “elderly” galaxies at the observational edge of the universe.
These contradict the current belief that the universe should have increasingly
younger objects as we view greater distances. He restates the fundamental
assumptions that must underlie the new paradigm. Notably, by assuming infinity
he is able to adapt classical mechanics to “neomechanics” and its insistence
that phenomena are strictly the result of matter in motion. He shows in detail
how misinterpretations of relativity have aided current flights of fancy more
in tune with religion than science.
why only Infinite Universe Theory can provide answers to questions untouched by
currently regressive physics and cosmogony. His new modification of gravitation
theory gets us closer to its physical cause without calling upon attraction or
curved spacetime or “immaterial fields.”
This is the
book for you if you have doubts about the universe exploding out of nothing and
expanding in all directions at once, that the universe has more than three
dimensions, or that light is a massless wave-particle that defies the Second
Law of Thermodynamics. Borchardt has put forth a solid case for an Infinite
Universe that extends in all directions and exists everywhere and for all time.
“What a great read! Thanks so much for a book
full of great ideas. I love the Q&A format; it’s very satisfying to have
good answers to clearly stated questions.” -Rick Dutkiewicz
“Truly brilliant.” -Jesse Witwer
“A radical, daring, and innovative demolition
of regressive physics, from the creation of ‘something out of nothing’ to the
‘God Particle.’” -William Westmiller
"Glenn Borchardt's book uses the hammer
of Infinity to explain and destroy the junk theories that plague 'Official'
physics today. This is a book that should be used in college courses, to give
students a basic understanding of how physics is done. Physics has 'gone off
the rails' for a century and it is books like Borchardt's that will return
physics from its current unscientific and anti-materialist base and back on to
a scientific and materialist road." -Mike Gimbel
a fascinating read!” -Juan Calsiano

CERN Antimatter Experiment
Suggest the Universe Shouldn’t Exist
By Ryan Whitwam on October 25,
Unless you are looking
for a few good laughs, you might want to skip this latest outrage. Here are some
quotes that will give you the gist of what the geniuses at CERN have come up
“One of the big questions
in science is not just “why are we here?’ It’s, “why is anything here?”
Scientists at CERN have
been looking into this one over the last several years, and there’s still no
good answer. In fact, the
latest experiment from physicists working at the Swiss facility
supports the idea that the universe doesn’t exist. It certainly seems to
exist, though. So, what are we missing?”
“In particle physics, the
Standard Model…has been supported by experimentation, but it predicts that the
big bang that created the universe would have resulted in equal amounts of
matter (us and everything around us) and antimatter (rare). If they were equal,
why didn’t the early universe cancel itself out, leaving just a sea of energy?”
These guys don’t seem to
know what matter is and have forgotten all about the Fifth Assumption of
Science, conservation (Matter and the motion of matter can be
neither created nor destroyed). So matter and anti-matter supposedly turn into
energy, which is once again construed as matterless motion. Krauss and Captain Bligh
would be proud!
Messing up the universe
PSI Blog 20171025 Messing
up the universe
I am a layman who is
interested in trying to understand the workings of the universe. I recently
ordered your book the, Scientific World View, and the book that you co-authored
with Stephen Puetz, Universal Cycle Theory. I’m very much looking forward
to reading them. I have a question for you born of concern.
I have a fear of man
developing a technology that will allow him to rapidly travel through the
galaxy. People are destructive and they are making this planet
uninhabitable for themselves and most other animal and plant life. If man
masters space travel as he has mastered travel here on earth, he’ll rapaciously
exploit all resources he finds on other planets and destroy whatever gets in
his way as he has done here on earth. So, my question is, given your view
of science, is there a chance that this author has worked out a way to make my
nightmares a reality? Could what’s laid out in this presentation be made reality
in the next several decades?
Thanks for your interest in our books. Please read Ch. 13 in
TSW to put your mind at ease. BTW: For every bit of destruction, we include a
bit of construction. As I look about me in CA, all I see is the beauty of L.
Tahoe and of SF Bay. Disaster books have always sold well (have written some
myself), so that is what you are supposed to read. As Wadi wrote: "We
are not living in the most dangerous time in human history, we're living in the
most fear-mongering time in human history” (p. 43 of http://thescientificworldview.blogspot.com/…/instill-and-en…).
In other words: Be frightened, very frightened and then
pay me money.
As for the outer space scenario, we have already done some
destruction (space garbage) and construction (GPS for all). Nothing new about
that. As always, we have to clean up the bad and sponsor the good.
