The laws of gravity don’t behave like we expect, therefore it must be magic pixie dust, or ether, or global warming or something.
Exactly, these morons have absolutely no clue
“The laws of gravity dont behave like we expect, therefore it must be magic pixie dust,,,”
It never even crosses their mind that they could be wrong. I feel like in a few hundred years, physicists will shake their heads -in amazement- at the theories that gained mainstream acceptance in this era.
No, it’s not pixie dust. Scientists observe something that they can’t explain, that represents a gap in our knowledge. So they propose a theory of what might be causing it. It isn’t a wild guess, but rather an educated guess based on the knowledge that science has discovered so far. Then they make predictions based on the theory and devise experiments to test their theories. Some theories are supported by the evidence and so become stronger and other theories are proven wrong. The ones that are wrong are scrapped or changed and the ones that most closely fit the data are expanded and refined. In this way our knowledge about the world and the universe is ever expanded. That is how science works and it has given us all of the modern inventions that make our lives so much better. The computer you typed your post on was only a theory once. New medicines are based on theories. We may one day have cheap almost unlimited power based on theories being developed and tested today and we may one day travel to other stars because of theories that are not even imagined yet. I for one am glad their are great minds in the world solving these puzzles and furthering Human knowledge. Because of them we are not all huddling in caves and sacrificing virgins because of a lightning storm, earthquake or volcanic eruption.
Another thing that scientists do is publish their work and show the data they collected so that others can try and duplicate their results or falsify them. They don’t ask to be taken on faith and they don’t hold to their theories in the face of contrary evidence. Not if they care about the truth. They don’t tell they show. They don’t say they prove.
As a long as orthodox cosmologists keep their blinders on and REFUSE to look at a force that is as infinite in its reach as Gravity, one that we can see evidence of everywhere we look in the universe, but one which is thirty-nine orders of magnitude (1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 times greater than gravity and just as infinite in reach) STRONGER, they will keep invoking magic and other excuses to make their beautiful, multidimensional house of cards stand.
Once they accept the fact that electromagnetism and its effects on plasma (the state of 99.99999999% of all matter in the universe) and the flows of energy throughout this Electric Universe, will they begin to understand how the universe works and realize that what they cannot explain using their Gravity driven model is easily explained without magical, non-existent dark matter, and in fact is predictable and demonstrable in the laboratory, using the Electric Universe models and theories. In fact, what orthodox cosmologists are continually surprised and shocked to find in the universe, have been predicted and expected findings of the Electric Universe cosmologists. . . repeatedly.
These orthodox cosmologists have been looking hither and yon for the chimera of dark matter and dark energy to make their theories match the observations and have NOT ONCE FOUND ANY. . . EVER. Yet every new observation confirms the predictions of the theories of the Electric Universe cosmologists, consistently.
The test of any scientific theory is how well it can predict future finding and observations. The predictions of the orthodox cosmologists have consistently failed this test for the last sixty years. The predictions of the Electric Universe cosmologists have had about a 95% accuracy over the last 85 years. Yet the vast majority of funding goes to the failures. Go figure.
