quote:Originally posted by Soul SurferI have skimmed through your papers and they do have some attractive features to them and I do not think that you are totally alone in your approach. there remains a very critical requirement, are there any observations that could be made to verify this hypotesis ot distinguish it from the currently favoured dark matter dark energy approach to cosmology and a theory of everything?
quote:Originally posted by Soul SurferYou seem to have a totally negative attitude Nieuwenove all the theories you mention have been proposed to deal with anomalies in observations and our models of the universe. To return to your original premise that scientists are following them like sheep. If you read the litereaure you will understand that they most definitely do not do this because there are almost as many theories as there are people working on them so unless you can offer something more positive I suggest that you go away and occupy your mind with a subject more to your tase towards which you may be able to propose positive contributions.
quote:Originally posted by Soul SurferOK then I will pose a final question, if you think that they are totally on the wrong track would you be prepared to suggest what might be the right track.I myself consider that some of the suggestions are inelegant and probably wrong but I do believe that there is an honest effort to design experiments to validate all the significant theories. For example, the August issue of Astronomy and Geophysics has a long and thorough review of experimental techniques to provide independant verification and measurement of the effects of dark energy by several independant methods.Learn, create, test and tellevolution rules in all thingsGod says so!
I have no question this time, I just want to express my opinion on the present situation in physics. In many respects we are really living in the "dark ages" (or middle ages) of physics.Some examples :Dark matter : invented to solve some problems with galaxy rotation curves - never observed - everybody seems to believe in itDark energy : invented to solve the apparant expansion of the universe - never understood, never demonstratedHiggs particle : Supposed to give mass to particles - never observedgravitons : Particles supposed to mediate the gravitational force - an absurd invention and never observedsterile neutrons : a newcomer with absurd properties - never observedstring theory : Many dimensions, nothing provenI could go on for a while here. Despite that these dubious concepts have no solid basis at all, most scientists seem to follow these ideas as stupid sheep.So, we are not much better off now then assuming that everything is composed of earth, water, fire, air.Let us hope things get better.Rudi Van NieuwenhovePS : check also http://home.online.no/~avannieu/darkmatter/
