big bang theory made by idiots?

A bit soon to expect replies after doling out that lot. Joe you've managed a chunk already - Are accretion discs that "off the wall"? Even I can grasp the concept. They have even been photographed. Admittedly the jets are problematical but I often read about magnetic fields and plasma being big play...

Big bang theory made by idiots?

Davep, I've just posted something similar to Spodzone so here's my bit for today: I am convinced that the Electric model of the Universe not only answers the questions but is predicting the observations. This is the growing counter-example to the heavily gravitationally biased conventions of the pas...

Yes Spozone, I am convinced that the Electric model of the Universe not only answers the questions but is predicting the observations. This is the growing counter-example a counter-example forces a change of theory or a bigger view supersedes it A small dedicated group of scientists and engineers ar...

Big Bang PROVEN!

big bang theory made by idiots?

Well gents, Joe, forgive my parentheses, you're right, I am not convinced by the CMBR arguments. My mind is open to alternatives that don't require dark matter and accelerating red-shifts to support them. I accept that microwave radiation and all its weird shapes is around us, but maybe for differen...

Big Bang PROVEN!

Seems that we are not all convinced anything is PROVEN. Aspicio Astrum :In science however, a theory is a model that is very much verified by evidence, and which can be used to predict occurrences. Ideally yes, but the problem comes when new observations are not predicted and instead of questioning ...

big bang theory made by idiots?

Smoot and Mather are awarded great honours for their measurements, started in 1989. But what have they affirmed? Originally a black body spectrum was needed to show a cosmic braking mechanism had caused the state of thermal equilibrium. Then the clumpy universe was discovered, so we've been looking ...

Big bang theory made by idiots?

I agree with Zeke, it's a pleasant change to see intelligent discussion, without pedantic arguments breaking out. It may be 2 late but there's a number of points I want to raise/discuss: pg2. Paul S: Relativity proof by atomic clocks on planes - I hear that radioactive decay rates can be varied by e...
