Correlation of LIGO discoveries with geomagnetic disturbances

January 12, 2019

Here is the entry point to the blog posts by Thaddeus Gutierrez reporting on his LIGO geomagnetic correlation studies.

LIGO India update: They’re going great guns

January 11, 2019

The year 2019 seems to be the starting point of concrete activities towards building LIGO India. There are many signs that they are proceeding full speed ahead.

First, the Department of Atomic Energy has put out an official tender for building the LIGO office building (Rs. 359 lakhs) in the Aundha Village in Hingoli District, Maharashtra.

Second, there is a report that the Prime Minister of India is expected to perform the groundbreaking ceremony at the LIGO site nearby, in February. This means that the Indian Government LIGO decision makers have given full and final go ahead.

Third, a big planning conference on LIGO India is taking place next week in a luxury resort near Mumbai, with international participants. I guess this “luxury” is justified by this being a celebratory/victory event.

All this means that India has obtained (or thinks it has) explicit or implicit assurance from the US Government and the Nobel Foundation to proceed without any scientific concerns. For US and Sweden to give the clearance – if they did – to a poverty-ridden nation to go ahead and invest thousands of crores of rupees of her taxpayer money on a fraud-ridden enterprise is rather surprising to me. I would have thought these parties had an obligation to at least caution the Indian Government on this – even if privately, even if off the record. The Nobel Foundation has close ties to India, and should have done something if they are in possession of such findings on LIGO as would aid India’s decision.

The US and Indian physics establishments also bear a great deal of responsibility in what is about to happen.

At any rate, stopping LIGO India is a lost cause for me. All I can say is that I tried.

No one concerned should ever forget that India is proceeding in the face of multiple flashing red signs from multiple directions and from multiple scientific experts worldwide. But so is Japan for that matter.

Scientific quality of LIGO evaluation: Proponents vs dissidents

January 11, 2019


Folks, I continue with my series of two-person graphics, illustrating the quality of science brought to the table by the two sides. Later I will try to collect these graphics in a Casebook.

It is a damn shame that the Indian Ligonauts do not heed their own homeland genius, but accept what the sahibs have to say in total faith.

Corruptions in physics establishment and media go hand in hand

January 10, 2019


I present below two Nobel elephants in the physics establishment’s parlor that no one wants to talk about. And the Nobel organization remains mum.

Does the public have a right to know such things, especially when they are given information overload about the glorious discoverers connected to these images?

Does the public have a right to know such things when billions of dollars of their money are being spent on these?

Does the public have a right to know such things when their youngsters are being corrupted with fraudulent science and their kids are being taught false science in schools?

Does the public have a right to know such things that show that their most trusted academics are betraying them without any scruples?

Does the public have a right to know such things that show that when non-scientific leaders of nations try to do right by science, it is the physicists and the reporters that are screwing over the world?

And who is to inform the public?

LIGO and The Raister Bootstrap

January 7, 2019

There is now a body of evidence making it a near certainty that the LIGO signals – if there were signals – were due to geomagnetic disturbances. In addition to the literature on Schumann Resonances, Thaddeus Gutierrez has put together evidence of undeniable correlation between all eleven LIGO events and magnetospheric sawtooth disturbance cycle (connected to said lightnings).

To this add the fact that there is no way in god’s green earth that LIGO could have observed gravitational waves. This is just straightforward physics. So it is just a question of how long Stonewall Reitze can stonewall before this rampant defrauding of taxpayers stops.

I find it most unfortunate that the Indian Ligonauts are duping their Prime Minister into performing a Hindu religious groundbreaking ritual in February at the proposed LIGO India site. The leader probably has been led to think this will immortalize him as a champion of cutting-edge science.
