Introduction to Velikovsky’s Ideas....
Dr. Irving Wolfe will review Immanuel Velikovsky’s contributions to a broad-ranging discourse in the sciences. Why did Velikovsky’s best-selling Worlds in Collision provoke one of most heated scientific controversies of the 20th century? Why did the gatekeepers of “acceptable” theory feel compelled to mobilize a boycott of the original publisher? And is it possible that Velikovsky’s own perspective on cultural amnesia can help us understand the reactions to his work? Modeling his analysis on a judicial approach, Dr. Wolfe will correct the record for the benefit of new generations in the sciences.
Wolfe earned a PhD in Drama from the University of Bristol, England.He is a member of the faculty, Department of English, University of Montréal, Canada.In addition to his literary research,Professor Wolfe has presented several dozen papers on catastrophism at conferences in England, Canada, and the United States, and has published papers in the field in British, Canadian and American journals. He has a... show more

Holes in space and time?...“We should remember that there was once a discipline called natural philosophy.Unfortunately,this discipline seems not to exist today.It has been renamed science,but science of today is in danger of losing much of the natural philosophy aspect.” Hannes Alfvén

Asteroid Missions and Crumbling Theories.Space News....
Today,two spacecraft exploring two separate asteroids may provide critical data that could change scientists’ thoughts about these mysterious,rocky worlds.Since June of 2018,the Japanese spacecraft Hayabusa2 has surveyed the surface of the asteroid Ryugu,and recently Japan’s space agency performed a touchdown on the object to collect physical samples,which will reach Earth late next year.Meanwhile, NASA’s Osiris-REx Spacecraft is exploring an asteroid of remarkably similar size, called Bennu, with dust samples from the asteroid scheduled to return to Earth in 2023. Already, what the spacecrafts have found has surprised scientists on Earth, including the “surprisingly dry” surface of Ryugu, and recently, the completely unexpected emission of “energetic plumes” of particles from the asteroid Bennu. In part one of this three-part presentation, physicist Eugene Bagashov explores in detail what the missions have already found, and he suggests from the Electric Universe perspective

Can you explain how both the BBT and SST rely on Einstein’s “Untired Light Theory” to interpret the cosmological redshift as evidence for an expanding universe?”....
This is what I wrote in IUT: “By 1929, Edwin Hubble discovered enough galaxies to establish that the degree of redshift also was a rough inverse function of their luminosity, which is a measure of their distance… His greatest mistake was to promote Slipher’s speculation that this cosmological redshift always was due to the Doppler Effect. The title of his famous 1929 introductory paper says it all: “A relation between distance and radial velocity among extra-galactic nebulae.””
In other words, he initially assumed the cosmological redshift and the Doppler Effect were one and the same. But the Doppler Effect only occurs in a medium. Einstein had removed that possibility by his temporary rejection of aether. A single particle could not have such an effect. Nonetheless, regressive physicists and cosmogonists accepted Einstein’s eight a

Martian Geology,Past and Present.Space News....In part one of this presentation,physicist E. Bagashov began his examination of some of the enduring geological mysteries on Mars.Of course, geologists examining the surface of Mars project familiar earthly processes onto the Red Planet,they imagine volcanic eruptions,flowing water and impacts from space as dominant forces shaping the Martian landscape.But countless Martian features defy these explanations.We have proposed that another process,high energy electrical discharge,may have produced some of the dramatic features on Mars,a hypothesis with a growing body of experimental support.In this conclusion,Eugene summarizes some of the most compelling evidence for electrical scarring on Mars and elsewhere in the solar system,including our own planet.

First photo of a black hole taken in Messier 87 galaxy

“We have seen what we thought was unseeable. We have seen and taken a picture of a black hole,” Sheperd Doeleman, EHT Director and astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Mass., said April 10 in Washington, D.C., at one of seven concurrent news conferences. The results were also published in six papers in the Astrophysical Journal Letters.

That's because black holes are notoriously hard to see. Their gravity is so extreme that nothing, not even light, can escape across the boundary at a black hole's edge, known as the event horizon. But some black holes, especially supermassive ones dwelling in galaxies’ centers, stand out by voraciously accreting bright disks of gas and other material. The EHT image reveals the shadow of M87’s black hole on its accretion disk. Appearing as a fuzzy, asymmetrical ring, it unveils for the first time a dark abyss of one of the universe’s most mysterious objects.

Mars Mysteries Reopened....Space News...Of all the planets in the inner solar system, the planet Mars may pose the most tantalizing mysteries. Since the early 1970’s, when the Mariner 9 spacecraft captured the most detailed images of the planet to that time, scientists' ideas about Mars have needed constant revision. For decades, the chief principles of the Thunderbolts Project have proposed that extraordinary events shaped the surface of Mars, events which they contend were recorded in the myths and legends of ancient man. In part one of this two-part presentation, physicist Eugene Bagashov reopens the Martian mysteries, as we explore the scientific data holding the greatest clues to these ongoing puzzles.

Bashing the Big Bang....This is a FAVORITE by David de Hilster who always gets gems from one of his friends, mentors, and one of the greatest scientific minds of our time: Dr. Glenn Borchardt on his Scientific Worldview Blog. This time Glenn brings to light how mainstream science journalism uses name calling instead of scientific arguments against those dissident scientists showing Einstein and general relativity wrong.

What is the cosmological redshift?... As mentioned in Infinite Universe Theory[1], there are many types of redshift found in astronomy. Here, we are concerned only with the one responsible for the erroneous idea that the universe is expanding. Light from all sources loses energy as a function of distance (Figure 1). Note that the dimmest sources, farthest away, have the highest redshifts (Figure 2). The cosmological redshift also is termed the “Hubble redshift” for the astronomer who first discovered it.

Why Do Planets Have Magnetic Fields? | Space News....ThunderboltsProject....The Earth’s north magnetic pole is on the move. According to a recent update to the World Magnetic Model, the movement of the north magnetic pole, which has been erratic yet accelerating for about 40 years, has recently accelerated more dramatically. Of course, planetary scientists attribute changes to our planet’s magnetic field to the so-called dynamo deep down in the planet’s outer core. However, we have reported on the groundbreaking recent discoveries which completely confound conventional models of planetary magnetic fields. In this episode, we ask retired professor of electrical engineering Dr. Donald Scott to elaborate how a planet’s magnetic field is generated in the Electric Universe.
Correction: at 13:40, should say: "A magnetic NORTH-POLE is where the magnetic field LEAVES a solid object."


The Black Hole, the Big Bang, and Modern Physics....
There has been a deliberate suppression of scientific truth by the community of physicists and astronomers concerning the black hole and the big bang. I bring you free access to original papers in the hope that this fraud can be exposed and physics restored to a rational search for knowledge. The black hole has no foundation in theory whatsoever. Neither Newton's theory nor Einstein's theory predict it. In fact, both theories preclude it, contrary to what the relativists claim.
The so-called "Schwarzschild" solution is not due to Karl Schwarzschild at all. The experts have either not read Schwarzschild's 1916 memoir or have otherwise ignored it. Go here to get Schwarzschild's original paper, in English. The so-called "Schwarzschild" solution is due to David Hilbert, itself a corruption of a solution first derived by Johannes Droste in May 1916, whose paper has also been buried or ignored at the convenience of the experts. It appears that the experts have not read Hilbert either. Go here to get a copy of Hilbert's erroneous... show more

Astronomy is stuck in the gas-light era,unable to see that stars are simply electric lights strung along invisible cosmic power lines that are detectable by their magnetic fields and radio noise.
It is now a century since the Norwegian genius Kristian Birkeland proved that the phenomenal ‘northern lights’ or aurora borealis is an earthly connection with the electrical Sun. Later, Hannes Alfvén the Swedish Nobel Prize winning physicist, with a background in electrical engineering and experience of the northern lights, drew the solar circuit. It is no coincidence that Scandinavian scientists led the way in showing that we live in an ELECTRIC UNIVERSE®.
Why have they been ignored? The answer may be found in the inertia of prior beliefs and the failure of our educational institutions. We humans are better stor... show more

Still more light found at the “end of the universe”.... The observable “end of the universe” is the farthest we can see with our present telescopes, with the Hubble Space Telescope the current far-out leader. In “Infinite Universe Theory” I included this photo, pointing out that the spiral galaxies at a distance of 13.2 billion light years were no different than our own Milky Way, which is 13.7 billion years old:
IUT, Figure 9. Close-up of a small portion of the HUDF [Hubble Ultra Deep Field]. Note that these objects are various colors. Most are not red as implied by the misnomer “cosmological redshift.” Color is determined by frequency, not wavelength. Credit: NASA.
Of course, the Big Bang Theory claims that we should see younger and younger objects the farther we look out into space:

Ultima Thule – Another Victory for the Electric Universe | Space News.
NASA’s New Horizons team has recently received pictures of the most distant object in our solar system ever imaged by a spacecraft.It’s nicknamed Ultima Thule,a relatively tiny body,just 19-miles long, located more than 4 billion miles from Earth in the so-called Kuiper Belt.As we see,like countless asteroids, some moons,as well as the majority of comet nuclei imaged to date,Ultima Thule is made of two distinct lobes which are joined by a thin neck region.Today,physicist Wal Thornhill explains why Ultima Thule is yet another resounding victory for the electric universe hypothesis.

The Logic of Proof....If a theory is true, then certain events can be observed.If Relativity is true,then starlight passing near the sun will be bent twice as much as Newton’s theory predicts.If evolution is true, then variations in a species can develop into independent species.If the Big Bang is true,then there will be a cosmic background radiation corresponding to the temperature to which space has cooled since it Banged.
