Quantum space denied, relativity theory debunked, Cartesian coordinate system destroyed, with one simple repeatable observation.
So you're getting lardy. C'mon -1-, ya can't blame physics.

the yardstick is expanding with the cubic space it is measuring!
So how can you tell if anything is expanding?

...a link to uwot's material is on the forum. Well worth reading IMO
Very kind of you to say so. I've just added a new bit on quantum fields and leaps and stuff https://willijbouwman.blogspot.com

Second time around.

I think this bears repeating.

Dark matter is incredibly elusive but it exists...
Strictly speaking, the phenomenon that is attributed to dark matter exists. Dark matter is just one of several hypothetical causes.

Re: Shoulda called it something else.

...I hitch onto the conversations, be they "appropriate" or not. Quite right too, and precisely how I treat this forum. If you want useful feedback you'd need to at least point people to the specific parts that changed - what has changed, and maybe even comparing with what came before and give the ...

Well, scientists demand to see God in the lab.
Yup. That seals it.

Look up, Walker: dark matter is unflushed god poop

Conceivably. Now, if you can just perform an experiment to demonstrate this, the Nobel Prize is in the post. First, perform an experiment that yields definitive evidence for dark matter, if the first one hasn't been done since July. Walker, if it is your tireless mission to persuade me that you are...

Re: Why do scientists think there was a big bang?

So, it can’t be seen or touched by scientists, and it’s believed by scientists to exist by inference of action upon the observable. Exactly. Are you talking about God, or dark matter? Well, on this occasion, dark matter and dark energy; although the same thing applies to gravitational, electromagne...

Re: Why do scientists think there was a big bang?

It is only within and around galaxies that general relativity applies. Outside of them spacetime is basically flat and can be treated as Euclidean even though Newtonian gravity is still universal Well, it's rather that we only apply general relativity within and around galaxies, and it only works a...

Re: Why do scientists think there was a big bang?

The four fundamental forces were fused together at the Big Bang and only became separated after expansion Well, that's one possibility that physicists are investigating. And as atoms did not exist then one can say that the field came before the particle not the other way around I think that is prob...

Re: Why do scientists think there was a big bang?

The only thing in theory which could possibly exist forever is a photon in empty space Depends on the theory. I'm a sucker for quantum field theories, according to which, if there's no electromagnetic field, there is no photon. It's chicken and egg: do particles cause fields, in which case how? Or ...

Re: Shoulda called it something else.

I can't speak for others but I have reviewed your material and provided positive feedback numerous times. Indeed you have. It is very encouraging, and if I sound ungrateful, I apologise. A couple of assumptions coming from you today, and each time you seem to have been wrong too. Well, I was just p...

Re: a primitive conception of time I just pulled out of my keister

In a perfect vacuum there'd be no time cuz time is change (and the possibility of measurement) and in a perfect vacuum there's nuthin' to measure. nonesence. the space with no stuff in it is still expanding via time! I think I'm with Henry on this one; unless you can explain what expanding via time...
