Debunking Physics Essay

3691 words - 15 pages

Debunking Physics and Discovering the Process of the Universe It started when I rejected the big bang theory. The idea that the Universe begun in a time before time and a space before space was just to much to accept. The first thing I discovered was that the theory is an interpretation and is not a scientific fact. Debunking the big bang theory led me into investigating and debunking many of the other interpretations of physics which are portrayed as scientific facts. But first, the big bang theory.In 1929 the astronomy Edwin Hubble noticed that the light from distance galaxies was increased in wavelength, and that the further away a galaxy was the greater the increase in the wavelength.This is what physicists call redshift. He interpreted this redshift as a Doppler Effect indicating that the galaxies are moving away from our point of observation. He further speculated that this must be the result of a big explosion throwing everything out from the center. Now, the first thing to notice here is that Hubble assumed that the galaxies with the greatest redshift were the more distant ones. How could he possibly know this? He couldn't. He simply assumed that the more distant galaxies have the greatest redshift, and most of the physics establishment followed this assumption like sheep. They followed like sheep because if Hubble was right they would have a another means of measurement. Just as you should never stand between a politician and a pot of money, you should never stand between a physicist and a means of measurement. It didn't take me long to realize that physicists are people who are obsessed with measurements and mathematics and who will sacrifice all logic for the sake of this obsession.Soon after Hubble proclaimed the redshift phenomena indicated that the Universe was expanding, an astronomer by the name of Fritz Zwicky came out against Hubble's interpretation. Zwicky proposed that the redshift was indicative of the light from the galaxies losing energy as it traveled across the Universe. This became known as the tired light theory. But, it was to late. The 'new means of measurement' genie was out of the bag and no alternative explanation was going to be considered.I pursued the question of the nature of light, and the space between things, by conducting a simple electrostatic experiment. When I rub a glass rod and place it near a suspended pith ball it attracts the pith ball. As someone once said, 'why is it so'. Physics sees this electrostatic attraction as the result of dislike charges. This begs the question of how these dislike charges result in attraction.On this physics remains silent. They have a mathematical way of expressing the attraction and in accordance with their obsession they don't desire anything else. I, on the other hand, want more than a mere mathematical expression of effect. I decided there and then that the attraction was due to the pith ball absorbing emission from the glass rod and that everything in the Universe...

Rational Choice Theory in Political Science

Rather, the prominence of rational choice theory has to do with more dubious factors that have little to do with the analytical achievements of rational choicers: a) The Physics envy phenomenon; b) A desire to command

For a multi-component system the Gibbs free energy is a function of Pressure, Temperature and quantity (mass, moles) of each component. If one of these parameters is changed, a state change to a more energetically favorable state will occur. This state has the lowest free energy
