  • Facts and Fallacies about Modern Physics – 2

    1. Einstein did not invent the atom bomb. See Einstein and the Bomb.
    2. Physicists have not discovered dozens of sub-atomic particles. In fact they haven’t even discovered one. Even the electron is only at the ‘theory’ stage, but there is reasonable circumstantial evidence for its existence. See How Physicists “Find” their Particles.
    3. The speed of light is not a constant. See Physics or Fantasy – Section 1. Michelson – Morley made some basic errors in their maths (simple trigonometry).  Einstein and the physics establishment accepted the maths without checking them, and arrived at the constant speed of light mythology.
    4. There is no such thing as the ‘wavelength of light’. Waves can be ‘created’ in streams of light just as they can be ‘created’ in streams of water, but you would look silly if you started talking about the ‘wavelength’ of water. ‘Waves’ in light are created by the apparatus itself. In fact all waves in anything you consider are either ‘created’, i.e. something other than the material or fluid itself actually causes the waves, or are ‘generated’ as in Radio and television waves. or just like alternating power supplies. If you hold a stick in a flowing stream of water, waves are ‘created’ around the stick. The ripples (Waves) in the sand are ‘created’ by the rush of water up the beach and have nothing to do with the waves in the water itself. The sand ‘waves’ in deserts are created by the wind and do not indicate that wind or sand are part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Physicists just do not understand the nature of waves because it is mechanics.
    5. Blue light does not have more energy than other colours, in fact it has the lowest energy level. See the posts on colour.
    6. No-one has ever seen an electron. No-one has ever seen an atom. However, we see by the quantity and speed of electrons entering our eyes. Yes, I do mean electrons, not Photons, there is no requirement for the hypothetical photon particle to explain vision.

    I will add more as I think of them.

      It really is hard to find informed individuals with this topic, nevertheless, you be understood as you no doubt know exactly what you are preaching about! Cheers

      I don’t know if I concur with your post here. See you do make a good point, I don’t believe you have really given plenty of thought to the other side of this argument. Perhaps I could do a guest post or a follow-up, just tell me.
      Most of my technical posts are based on giving a lot of thought to the other side of the argument.

      Hey. Mainly needed to leave a short comment and enquire exactly where you obtained your blog graphics I am setting up own wordpress blog and factually like your personal design.
      Apart from the few graphics on ‘Physics in the News’ items, all graphics are done by me. They start off on Autocad, then transferred to my Apple computer to handle the colour.

      I really like what you’ve done with the theme but I was asking myself if you are the one that created it or you just bought it and customized it?
      The basic theme is a standard WordPress structure modified to my instructions (By my son who occasionally does what he’s told). I was very unhappy about the quality of themes available across the web, most of them very poor, a large percentage being extremely bad.
