THIS MULTIVERSE BACCHANALIA

May 11, 2017


Decline of civilizations is accompanied by rise of orgiastic bacchanalia among the privileged set. The tremendous activity around multiverse today is such a bacchanalia of the intellectual kind. In an ongoing debate on multiverse, the proponents have issued a letter signed by 33 prominent leaders of the physics establishment. I have no desire to lower myself into this sordid business except to point out how this entire enterprise rests on perpetuating a grand lie. Here is a key portion:

The remarkable fact is that, starting with the results of the Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) satellite in 1992, numerous experiments have confirmed that these predictions (along with several others too technical to discuss here) accurately describe our universe.

The entire multiverse enterprise rests on the identification at the core of the observed Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) radiation as the theorized Big Bang relic blackbody radiation.

This identification is totally fraudulent. CMB has been conclusively proved to be NOT a blackbody radiation, sequentially by each one of the three satellites mentioned in this letter (COBE, WMAP, Planck). This proof came at the expense of billions of dollars from American and European taxpayers.

This proof – which essentially took away the punch bowl – was deep sixed so that the party could continue. The disproved false result that CMB is blackbody was perpetuated.

Therefore multiverse is not just a decadent bacchanalia; it is a total fraud. There is nothing here to debate.

Multiverse is beyond science fraud. It is a gigantic taxpayer fraud.

PHYSICS TODAY: Sum it up with two great, big nothingburgers and a drink

April 15, 2017


.
For decades, some men have occupied physics workspace, hogged attention, attracted funds and danced their celebrity dance. When all of that has amounted to nothing, it is necessary for the world to know that fact and process that fact. These fops and dandies should not be allowed to go unscathed.

This post is being made to honor the unknown men and women who have tried to make an honest contribution to physics outside the catwalk limelight and found themselves ignored and sidelined because their community was too busy worshiping the false idols.

And what about this community? Who shall judge them?

LORD HAVE MERCY!

THE SCOURGE OF THE LIGO SCIENCE POPULARIZERS AND SCIENCE REPORTERS

April 13, 2017

The science popularizers are still at it!

Just this past month Brian Greene pitched LIGO at the World Science Festival Australia.

Just yesterday Lawrence Krauss unveiled his own genius idea: Combine the Big bang fraud and the LIGO fraud, and come up with the new science of Big Ligo Bang!

And as I reported recently, Neil deGrasse Tyson defended LIGO thus: We have competent people thinking about this stuff. We’re not just making shit up.

But let me give the above activity a context from right within the same physics establishment to which the popularizers belong. Harvard physics professor Lisa Randall is also a leading science popularizer with a large following. But unlike the above popularizers, LIGO is within her scientific bailiwick and she is a practicing scientist.

Randall remained significantly silent when the LIGO discovery took the world by storm. When a couple of years ago the scam BICEP2 discovery was similarly rolled out and similarly took the world by storm, and the very science popularizers above were dancing their celebrity dance also then, she was the first to publicly express reservation.

So, with this reference point, you need to ask some questions as to what the popularizers are actually doing.

Why is Bibhas De so pissed off with the physics establishment?!

April 9, 2017

Part of the reason why I am so pissed off with the physics establishment is the following. I consider this collective scientific misconduct by the establishment. So, naturally, when they indiscriminately spawn scam science and fraud science and frou frou science or when they engage in group intellectual masturbation, I am predisposed to exposing them.

In the same timeframe as the above, this is what was going on:

So there you have it!
