Indeed, it's an area that could do with much more research done on it and sooner rather than later but with no funding or even understanding of the electric comet concept by most people, there's no fast answer. As for Mond; I'd say we can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them. The Electric Universe is a convergence of ideas from multiple disciplines.Mond is finding new ways to flog a dead horse without daring to crack Einsteins cosmic egg.The matrix still has you Brian. General Relativity is so well tested, many scientists legitimately ask how can the law of gravity change? Unfortunately, the only data that test General Relativity on the scale of the mass discrepancy are the data that show the mass discrepancy. These could already be claimed as a clear contradiction to its predictions... that's why we have to invoke dark matter: to make up the difference. The existence of dark matter is an inference, not an experimental fact. Individual candidates for the dark matter can be tested and falsified. The concept of dark matter is not falsifiable. If we exclude one candidate, we are free to make up another one. After WIMPs, the next obvious candidate is axions. Should those be falsified, we invent something else. Particle physicists love to do this. I'd lol if it weren't for the gravity of the situation they have us pinned down with. The horse was still born to begin with but as long as they get payed to flog its by now stinking carcass, then that's just what they're going to do. we are missing something fundamental about the nature of our universe.Are we scientists able to follow the scientific method and admit we're wrong when the data say so? Or are we just middling priests of some Cold Dark Religion ushering in another millenium of epicycles? hmmm Since the mathematicians have invaded the theory of relativity, I do not understand it myself anymore. No one said it was going to be easy Al. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
