Is LIGO a Buy, Hold, or Sell?

June 22, 2017

Q: Is LIGO a Buy, Hold, or Sell?
A: It is now a Strong Sell.

A POWERED FLIGHT TOWARDS THE NOBEL SKY:

The recent spate of European prizes to LIGO might have you believe that LIGO is shooting upward in a powered flight, about to reach the Nobel sky. These prizes include the German Lower Saxony Prize, the Einstein Medal, the European Physical Society Prize, the European Science Prize, and some kind of Spanish deal called the Princess of Asturias Prize. Upon such feting, anyone is bound to be bowled over.

But this is LIGO’s fake world. The truth lies elsewhere. As I said a long while ago, a test arena you might watch is India LIGO.

INDIA LIGO DEVELOPMENTS:

India LIGO received full and final approval from the Indian Government only days after LIGO first detection. Funds were obtained and earmarked for LIGO. Some of these funds were given over to LIGO for conducting preliminary surveys. LIGO site was finalized, and construction was about to begin. It only remained for the Government of India to release the bulk of the funds to LIGO.

At this stage, a hold was placed on these funds by the Government.

Now started the American pressurizing of the Indian Government to release these funds.

The American physics Nobelist David Gross (remember this cigarette-smoking environmentalist?) very publicly derided the Indian Government for holding up LIGO.

The Government did not budge.

High US LIGO officials went to India and told the Government to get on with the program or else.

The Government did not budge.

NSF director France Cordova made a statement wishing the Indian Government would get going on LIGO.

The Government did not budge.

The European LIGO prizes kept coming out the wazoo, in the strongest possible affirmation of the LIGO machine.

The Government did not budge.

The first LIGO discovery was confirmed for a second time (the third LIGO detection).

The Government did not budge.

This is where we stand today.

MY READING OF THE SITUATION:

The first thing we now understand about India Government’s technocratic leadership is that they are nobody’s fools: neither the Indian Ligonauts’ , nor France Cordova’s. They are there to look after their nation’s interest.

And that is exactly what they are doing.

I believe that LIGO dissidence caused the technocrats to take a closer look at the whole issue, perhaps in collaboration with the greater Indian physics community (beyond the LIGO community). I believe they came to the conclusion that importing the US LIGO machine and installing it on Indian soil is not the right thing to do, scientifically speaking.

Whether the Indian Government wants it or not, their choice amounts to a scientific verdict on LIGO.

Italy and Japan take note.

The Indian Ligonauts are still engaging in their customary happy talk, but I do not believe that this is the Indian reality.

NOTE ADDED 06/22/2017:

Seeing that India is not budging, US LIGO officials tried to push LIGO on Australia a second time. Australia did not budge.

LIGO BAGHOLDERS (Lord have mercy!)

Bagholders = Stockholders whose stocks have become worthless!

The following organizations have strongly endorsed the Ligo discovery even as it stood scientifically exposed as a sham or a scam or a fraud in the public arena. There can be no innocent explanation for this conduct. They are now left holding the bag!

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?

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.
