Does Science Admit When it’s Wrong?

The two most recent Thunderblog articles, by Wal Thornhill and Dr. Jeremy Dunning-Davies, are epic meditations on the current state of cosmology and the future of science. Many who have followed the efforts of the Thunderbolts Project share a sense that we are truly approaching a “tipping point,” where the ...

Thoughts on ‘The Future of Theoretical Physics and Cosmology’

Recently there seems to have been increased activity on the internet amongst supporters of the general ideas of plasma cosmology and the electric universe discussing ways and means of furthering the claims of these two areas – two areas which are, incidentally, irrevocably interconnected. From reading much of the discussion ...

Science’s Looming ‘Tipping Point’

It is essential in these exuberant times to pay critical attention to both the observational constraints and to the basic mathematical laws, with a clear sense of what is solid theory and what is only unsupported speculation. This seeming platitude is offered here without jest, because at the present time ...

A Cautionary Tale

The Red-Faced Hunters When Paleolithic hunters left their caves on the mountainside to chase the Paleolithic hamburgers across the plain (this was before the McPaleoBurger franchises), the Paleolithic astronomers on top of the mountain noticed this correlation: The farther away the hunters ran, the smaller and fainter they appeared. By ...
