Direct statements concerning dramatic changes in the appearance of planets are few and far between in ancient sources.

A classic example is a fragment from the obscure Greek astronomer Castor of Rhodes (1st century BCE), as cited by his contemporary, the Roman grammarian Marcus Terrentius Varro, who was in turn cited by the church father Augustine of Hippo (354-430 CE). According to this tantalisingly brief passage, the planet Venus once “changed its colour, size, shape and course, a thing which has never happened before or since.” This information, frequently considered in catastrophist theories, presents quite a puzzle.

Congratulations Rosetta, shame about the science…

Congratulations to the team responsible for the success of the Rosetta mission to comet 67 P Churyumov-Gerasimenko (henceforth 67 P). However, it’s a shame that scientists misled the engineers with their cherished story of icy comets, which resulted in an inappropriate design for the lander, Philae. Chris Reeve writes, “We train all physicists to adopt the same basic scientific framework — at the expense of also teaching them how to analyze the same phenomenon from multiple perspectives — and then we wonder why certain problems remain unresolved despite the investment of massive resources, people and time. The very act of rigidly training everybody in the same framework seems to me the problem which precludes their solution.”

Modern astronomy surely suffers from a kind of blindness. It is either a blindness of mind or one of practice.

The continuing presence of Big Bang cosmology among those who are charged with increasing the store of scientific knowledge proves that there certainly is blindness in some form. Not only astronomers, but science reporters have lost the ability to differentiate fact from theory, thus helping to perpetuate the Big Bang. Media reports constantly assert that new discoveries confirm it when such reports are not based on observational evidence.

Thunderbolts

10th September, 2013

EU 2014 will not just be our biggest conference yet; it will be the best as well. Backed by an interdisciplinary synthesis, the EU community is now attracting unprecedented public and scientific interest.
Conference Vision
Join us at EU2014 for a four-day exploration of interdisciplinary science, an event designed to break the bounds of conventionality. Discover the universal role of the electric force, from microcosm to macrocosm, where virtually every new surprise points us in the same direction. And find your own connections within a movement that will shape the future of science.

World’s most sensitive dark matter detector comes up empty

Posted by seumasach on October 31, 2013

Contemporary science claims to be objective but has ideological roots which have led to aberrant thesis such as “dark matter”, evolutionary theory posited on only gradual environmental change and biological systems based on only mechanical or biochemical forces. Issac Newton referred to  electrical forces in the Scholium of his Principia by way of an afterthought which was subsequently, fatefully ignored as the “Enlightenment” shied away from the magical worldview of the Renaissance

And now we might add something concerning a certain most subtle spirit which pervades and lies hid in all gross bodies; by the force and action of which spirit the particles of bodies attract one another at near distances, and cohere, if contiguous; and electric bodies operate to greater distances, as well repelling as attracting the neighboring corpuscles; and light is emitted, reflected, refracted, inflected, and heats bodies; and all sensation is excited, and the members of animal bodies move at the command of the will, namely, by the vibrations of this spirit, mutually propagated along the solid filaments of the nerves, from the outward organs of sense to the brain, and from the brain into the muscles. But these are things that cannot be explained in few words, nor are we furnished with that sufficiency of experiments which is required to an accurate determination and demonstration of the laws by which this electric and elastic spirit operates.

A new experiment buried deep underground has proven itself to be the most sensitive dark-matter detector ever built. But the first results from the high-tech instrument have turned up empty in its search for elusive dark matter, scientists announced today (Oct. 30).

The Norwegian fjords

Northern Scandinavia is probably the most rugged terrain on Earth. It is a peninsular landmass extending outward from the Asian continent for 2000 kilometers and is notable for the enormous number of deep fjords carved into its northwestern edge. Some of the chasms plunge 800 meters deep with cliff walls 1000 meters high. Many are more than 100 kilometers long – Sognefjorden being the longest at 204 kilometers. In some places, it is more than 1300 meters deep with surrounding mountains of equal height.

Did this ancient site experience a catastrophic end?

Tiwanaku, or Tiahuanaco in Spanish, is a ruined citadel occupying almost 10 square kilometers in the Bolivian Andes at an altitude greater than 3800 meters. Carbon-14 dating methods suggest that the site is no more than 3700 years old. However, as previous Picture of the Day articles discuss, radiometric dating is, at best, an unreliable system for establishing age.
