black holes, dark matter, dark energy, neutron stars, Quasars, nuclear fusion sun, dirty snowball comets are all separate theories dependent on gravity as the main driver in the universe. The Electric Universe model can explain these and many others in a single unified theory.
the first link i find very poor. Im an extreme skeptic and can see both sides of every argument and can see flaws in the electric model but the first link is taking things that i never even heard the electric theory say and pointing to those points as why the theory is wrong
or rather they are taking things in the electric theory and explaining them wrong.
i think the suns corona, the dirty snowball, redshift, quasars, dark matter are all things that are against standard theory and support electric theory or some other theory that we dont know about yet
This can't be right, it's too dumbed-down. We're not scientists, so there's no way we could possibly understand how the universe works. Only scientists know that. They have the over-inflated degrees and tenure to prove it. Also, their work is "peer-reviewed", this isn't. Therefore, it cannot be true.
cant tell if you are being sarcastic.
its when knowledge is institutionalized that we have problems, The Nazis had very good science that they were the master race and would laugh at anyone who said other wise. Same thing applies nowadays, we have universities that might as well be churches you are laughed at when you simple question things like the big bang or evolution. Its fine to say its the best explanation that we have right now but to deny scientist the right to experiment because they don't agree with the status quo is wrong. Things like quasars have claimed a lot of scientists their jobs because they stumbled upon something that didn't match up with what the old guys said
I was completely sarcastic. I've taken a lot of slack for a while on here because I do love science, and I also love history. And if history tells us anything is that scientific answers aren't permanently fixed; they change with time and new discoveries.
Otherwise, we'd still be practicing blood-letting for curing ailments, the Earth would still be the center of the solar system, Comets would be bringers of bad-luck, and the sex of your child would be determined by which phase of the moon it was conceived under.
Which is why when someone says something is "settled science" I laugh in their face.
Science is not what we know, it's what we think we know.
Look at what the discovery of Quantum Physics did to the world of Physics.
ok cool. i hear you on people strange notion that science is such a powerful or onesided view. Southpark did it good when they replaced the word god with science in a episode just to show how people can be. statements like "This isn't about what I "feel." It is scientific fact." make me testy.
im subscribed to sciencecast! :)
and yes this is very interesting i like how they talk about matter moving close to the speed of light along the magnetic field lines.
"Everyone knows that electric fields are the most efficient way to accelerate electric particles. Well, everyone except solar physicists, whose thinking is still constrained by the nuclear furnace theory"

^why I think dark matter and dark energy is a mathamaticians scapegoat instead of admitting to himself that gravity cannot be the only driving force in the Universe.
Maybe the driving force in the universe is the drive to equilibrium/homogeneity. Universes like ours are temporary anomalies. What we perceive as the second law of thermodynamics and time flow is an attempt to restore equilibrium. But there is always an overshooting and slight imperfections that give rise to limited separate "realities".
What is space? It is the distance between two objects.
In the big bang theory, there was a single object which burst and created mutliple objects. It's postulated that time did not exist before this moment. -This is in error, because without time you cannot have cause and effect. This is what I consider laziness.
Because if time did not exist before the big bang, then there was no cause, nor was there a creation for the mass and energy which exploded. It had to come from somewhere.
I think in following generations, the Big Bang Theory will become obsolete, and people will come to realize the truth. The universe is infinitely large, infinitely small, has always existed, will always exist, and will constantly continue to evolve and change.
The "big bang" is kind of like the panspermia approach to the "where did life come from" debate. If the big bang happened then what was before that, and before that? Where did that matter come from? How did it bang?
I think it makes more sense to think of our universe as being part of integrated life systems (or possessing some kind of driving proto-consciousness), personally. I think of it more in terms of a fractal, which requires consciousness to become material.
Basically, the big bang is akin to the sprouting of a seed... and life is a prevalent precursor, not a random post event.
There's interesting evidence of this, actually. Consciousness, to me, MUST exist before matter... which is to say, matter is created from the drive of consciousness. Much like how the human mind expands into infinity, so too does the universe.
The Holographic Universe is a great book on that note.
