Well, it looks like lying Brian Koberlein finally blinked as it relates to EU/PC solar neutrino predictions, four years too late to be considered “professional”, but his lies, his unethical behaviors, and his misrepresentations of EU/PC solar models still continue unabated. Koberlein starts his unethical and unprofessional behavior in his new blog entry by first comparing the EU/PC model to a flat Earth theory, Niribu claims, and the book/movie “Chariot of the Gods”. More unethical behavior from the start. He makes no mention of Birkeland's work or Alfven's work of course.
Koberlein continues to unprofessionally blame poor Findlay for his own laziness like a child who blames his dog for eating his homework. Koberlein specifically mentioned two other books in his original blog entry which were written by Thornhill and Scott, both of which mention neutrinos which vary with sunspot activity. Both books are *very* clear about predicting neutrinos coming from the sun, and both authors predict that neutrinos are variable with the solar cycle. Koberlein claimed to be discussing Thornhill’s model in his original blog entry, not Findlay’s model, but Koberlein still isn’t man enough to simply admit his own laziness and just admit his own mistakes. Instead he continues to misrepresent the meaning of Findlay’s statements, and he continues to unethically blame Findlay for his own unprofessional nonsense. The childish lack of professionalism hasn’t changed one iota. Lying Brian continues to flat out lie in his new blog entry when he erroneously and unethically claims that: “ ….Findlay clearly claims fusion doesn’t occur at all”. Bullshit! Just like in his first blog entry on this topic, Koberlein cites no specific quote from Findlay which explicitly states any such thing. He lists just one quote from Findlay that states that stars are powered by electrical current which of course does *not* preclude fusion in the solar atmosphere, and it is *not* the same thing as claiming that “fusion doesn’t occur *at all*” as Koberlein falsely asserts. Lying Brian continues to flat out lie through his teeth and he continues to unprofessionally blame Findlay for his own previous lies, just like he did in his first blog entry on this topic. Koberlein was caught red hand lying about neutrino predictions that Findlay, Scott and Thornhill never made, so he simply lies some more to justify his original lies. What an unethical putz.
Koberlein’s false statements continue: “To my best current understanding, some EU models say fusion doesn’t occur at all….”. No, that’s not the “best of your knowledge” lying Brian, because Findlay never made any such a claim in the reference that you cited or anywhere else in that whole PDF. Claiming that the sun is powered by electrical current isn’t the same thing a claiming that no fusion takes place at all. Koberlein's “best knowledge’ turns out to be another blatant lie, or it demonstrates his own gross negligence, gross incompetence and pure ignorance.
Since he’s finally (four year later) forced to admit that Thornhill’s book and Scott’s book *do* in fact predict neutrinos, which vary with the solar cycle, he takes a new approach to “debunking” and misrepresenting EU/PC theory using oversimplified claims about gamma rays. Z-pinch processes can and do occur *throughout* the sun, and the bulk of neutrino emitting processes would necessarily occur *under* the surface of the photosphere, where any gamma ray emissions would quickly be absorbed and would not necessarily ever leave the surface of the photosphere. The gamma rays would be absorbed by the photosphere and generate heat that would result in a *thermal* spectrum from the photosphere just like the standard solar model. Instead of *trying to understand* the model correctly and present Thornhill's model fairly to the public, Koberlein is still desperately trying to *misrepresent* the facts. Continuing to compare the solar spectrum to a florescent light bulb is another obvious example of this unethical and ignorant behavior since the temperature of the surface of the photosphere in EU/PC solar models is identical to the mainstream model. It would necessarily therefore emit a *thermal* spectrum that is inconsistent with a florescent light bulb and which is consistent with solar observations. Sheesh.
Koberlein also attempts to try to use the observation of limb darkening to insist that this observation of limb darkening demonstrates that deeper layers of the sun are necessarily “hotter” than the outer surface. This is a false premise. The sun’s limb appears to be darker because it’s made of thinner, less light emitting plasma compared to the sun as a whole. The plasma along the limb is also actually a little further away from Earth than the plasma in the middle of the sun so the inverse square law would also therefore apply and it contributes a little to the limb darkening effect.
Apparently Koberlein expects some sort of credit for *finally* coming clean over the neutrino issue (sort of), in a backhand manner, four years too late, while continuing to misrepresent the model. He also fails to mention that his own precious standard model has already been falsified. The convection predictions of the standard solar model were shown by SDO measurements to be two whole orders of magnitude slower than “predicted” by the standard model. If we used Koberlein’s same ‘debunking’ mentality, we should certainly toss out the mainstream solar model because it’s predictions fail to match observation.
A ‘professional’ scientist would simply have admitted their obvious mistakes *years* ago, and they would have made some attempt to properly present the model this time around. Koberlein however did no such thing. He’s four years too late, and he’s not man enough to admit his own mistakes. Instead of misrepresenting the neutrino predictions this time, he misrepresents the gamma ray predictions of EU/PC theory instead. In short, lying Brian simply trades one set of lies for another. It’s the very same unprofessional and unethical dance, just a different tune. Koberlein’s behavior is still totally unprofessional and utterly pathetic.
