physics readers argue Big Bang Theory
(Oct 17, 2006)
Michelson-Morley experiment was flawed, then the Big Bang Theory is flawed."

New York, NY – The Big Bang Theory rests upon Einstein's Theory of Special
Relativity. Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity rests upon the Michelson-Morley experiment which supposedly measured the velocity of light,
c, as a constant. Therefore, if the Michelson-Morley experiment is
faulty, then the Big Bang Theory is faulty.
So guess what? Michelson-Morley's
experiment was flawed. How? Their measurement of the supposed
constant velocity of light was made with mirrors.
But light does not bounce from the
reflective surface of a mirror the way a golf ball
rebounds from a concrete wall. Regardless of the velocity
of incidence, light is absorbed by the
atomic structure at the silver surface, the photonic particles (or
vibrations if your're into String Theory) turn within atomic space and new
particles are then emitted at the
velocity of c within whatever medium you're conducting the test.
Therefore, Michelson and
Morley did not measure the velocity of rebounded
original light but rather new atomic
light emitted from the infrastructure of the mirror, a serious
flaw in their basic assumption.
Nor did Einstein claim c was
constant. Everybody knows that light travels less than c in water and
other media. How do you explain a prism's rainbow?
In the absence of any
publications citing greater acceleration in any one direction, we must
assume that the Big Bang explosion that started the universe happened right
here at the third rock from the Sun. What a coincidence and how
But if not Big Bang, then
That's for me to know and the
physicists arguing in letters to the WSJ to find out.
P.S. By the way, to Sean Walston,
Ph.D. in Physics at Stanford University: in the Invisible College we
don't have to worry about credentialed
tenure because we seek only the truth, not university grants from
the government. Nor do I have to remind you
that most big scientific breakthroughs are not discovered in the
credentialed paradigm but rather from outsiders, including Albert Einstein.
