Fri nite frite: Aster…OID!!

Okay, a meteor.

Recently, we were noting that there are some unresolved questions around our moon. We think it got started in a collision, but none of the current models completely works.

Collision? Well, of course, a collision could happen again, right? Sometimes the most truly unsettling presentation is not “Cue the Zoid from Zongo!!” sci-fi but just trying to imagine the physics. What if that happened today?:

Sleep tite. Be sure to wear your meteor crash helmet and everything will be fine.

  1. OT: Michael Medved with Stephen Meyer on Gravity

  2. Isn’t it exciting that models don’t work? Isn’t it thrilling that there is a mystery which needs to be unraveled? I can’t understand why anyone would be so laidback and smug.

    In my opinion, Stephen Meyer and the Discovery Institute are making a big mistake by embracing the Big Bang theory and Einstein’s spacetime theories. A big paradigm shift is right around the corner. Einstein’s physics is not as completely confirmed as some believe. For one, it contradicts quantum entanglement, i.e., action at a distance. Second, as I have said so many times, a time dimension makes motion impossible which is the reason that nothing can move in Einstein’s spacetime. So the usual explanation that gravity is caused by the curvature of spacetime is just hogwash. This is one of the dirty little secrets of the physics community, not unlike the lack of fine graduation in the fossil record in the Darwinist community. Physicists don’t talk much about it because it would make some big names in physics look rather stupid.

    As an aside, early in the show, Michael Medved asked why, if gravity is everywhere, there was zero gravity in space? Actually, there is plenty of gravity even at the orbital height of the space station. Astronauts and the space station don’t “feel” the effect of gravity because objects in orbit are in free fall, as per Newton’s theory.

    What has Quantum entanglement got to do with space-time? Time dimension is just another coordinate added to space coordinates, which together forms space-time, so how can ‘motion be impossible’ in time dimension?

  5. Mapou is right. Einstein’s Relativity is just a House of Mirrors. I’m surprised that so many IDers (and even creationists) have so much faith in it.

    What Christians don’t realize is that there is deep deception in the sciences, and not just in biology. There are things about the universe that the mortal masses, even the intelligent ones among us, are forbidden to understand by the powers that be. That’s what Darwinism is about and that’s what Einstein’s physics is about. The concept of a time dimension in which we are moving in one direction or the other is a conceptual disaster that has retarded progress in physics by at least a century.

    Remember the old warning: “We struggle not against flesh and bone but against powers and principalities in high places.” They are deviously clever and more calculating than Machiavelli.

  7. Hi George E @5,
    What aspect of Relativity leads you to believe it is a ‘House of mirrors’?

    Hi Mapou @ 6,

    In existing space-time (not space-time imagined and promoted by DR.Hawking, Dr.Kaku etal.),time cannot move backward, so there is no absurdity as envisaged by movie directors and science fiction author and philisophers.

  8. selvaRajan, I have explained this to you before but you are hard of hearing. Time cannot change simply because changing time is self-referential. Why? Because, just as motion implies a rate of change in position (i.e., velocity = dx/dt), changing time necessarily implies a rate of change in time, which would have to be given as vt = dt/dt, which is nonsensical. It’s that simple. So when we go from 1 o’clock to 2 o’clock, it is not time that changes, but the clock and everything else.

    So what is one to make of so-called time dilation? Obviously, if time cannot change, it cannot dilate either. So it is not time that dilates but the clock that slows down, for whatever reason having to do with conservation of energy. Time dilation is the greatest misnomer in the history of science.

    In conclusion, there is only the changing present, the now. Spacetime does not exist and never did. And it’s not just time. Space (distance), too, is an illusion.

  9. Oh yes. I forgot to mention that Stephen Hawking is a true blue crackpot for claiming that Einstein’s general relativity does not forbid time travel. If spacetime is changeless, there can be no travel in time in any direction. Duh. But don’t tell this to Stephen’s hordes of clueless fans. I don’t think they can handle the heartache.

    Needlessly to say, the concepts of black holes and wormholes are of course, hogwash since they are based on the existence of spacetime.
