Wall Street Journal physics readers argue Big Bang Theory
(Oct 17, 2006)

"If the Michelson-Morley experiment was flawed, then the Big Bang Theory is flawed." -- FM Duck, Invisible College

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 geo-centrically naive!

   But if not Big Bang, then what?

   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. -- Prof FM Duck, Invisible College (with thanks to ideas from Prof T.B. Pawlicki)
