WHAT first began as ‘rumored’ science on conservative websites is now being reinforced by what can only be described as the foremost authority on the Expanding Universe. The thought that there was a Non Expanding Theory has been introduced by a trained engineer, who has turned rogue astronomer. The following quote from Dr X does add credibility to this challenge to eight decades of ‘settled’ science:
Dr X has “admitted that the expanding universe might be an illusion, but
implied that this was a cautious and colorless view. Last week it was apparent that
he had shifted his position even further away from a literal interpretation of red
shift, that he now regards the expanding universe as more improbable than a
What gives this Dr X usurper, along with that engineer turned rogue astronomer, the right to challenge this cornerstone of modern astronomy ?
The identity of the mysterious Dr X is none other than “Mount Wilson Observatory’s brilliant Astronomer Edwin Powell Hubble,” who with coworker Milton LaSalle Humason first observed the red-shift of light from distant stars. Continuing, “It was assumed that the distant nebulae were retreating in all directions.”
One interesting fact is that this interview was for Time Magazine and was published as “Science: Shift on Shift” on Dec 14, 1936. Here you have proof that the ‘father of the Expanding Universe Theory’ had misgivings just years after his 1929 disclosure. Following the motto of P T Barnum, of “there’s a sucker born every minute” the existing ‘big science’ teams saw an unlimited opportunity to expand astronomy budgets.
The ‘sucker’ in this case is the taxpayer, forced by errant bureaucrats for fund side-show science on an ever expanding universe with ever expanding grants, awards and fellowships. Bureaucrats do have an affection for expanding concepts, witness the vast expansion of planetary maladies they have been able to ascribe to the ‘expansion of carbon dioxide’ gas in our atmosphere.
Dr Hubble (the previous mentioned Dr X) made his scientific discoveries on the 100 inch Hooker telescope, the world’s largest at the time. In the Times interview, he communicated to the National Academy of Sciences that:
“The distribution of these bodies [distant nebulae] in space forced him to conclude
that a non-expanding universe theory is more economical and less vulnerable”
Having birthed this brand of Franken-science the good doctor was now powerless to stop what now had a life of its own. He was “now willing to abandon the expanding universe to mathematical cosmologists” and they we only too happy for this new gravy train.
In a Pontius Pilate moment during the interview, Dr Hubble states his hope that the new 200 inch Caltech super telescope to be completed in the 1940’s would settle this question. Since the ability to gather light is a function of area, and therefore of a square, this new eye in the sky could see four times as much, four times as far back, as the Hooker telescope.
What dismayed Dr Hubble at the time was that the speed of the then edge of the universe was “equal to 25,000 miles per second”. This was the speed that Milky Way sized galaxies were perceived to be moving. The world had to take time out to counter a virulent form of ‘master race planet domination’ which caused a delay in completing of the 200 inch Mt Palomar telescope until 1948.
When even deeper space light was showing even greater ‘apparent acceleration’ the mathematical cosmologists descended on the witless bureaucrats at the NAS for an ever expanding list of fanciful solutions, including dark matter, invisible universes and vacuum energy.
No, this is not the tattooed armband coordinates for Anglia Jolie’s latest offspring. This is the name for the newest and most distant cluster galaxy estimated at 9.6 billion light years away and closest yet observed to the 13.7 billion year old universe edge. As the speed of these supposed distant galaxies are now approaching the actual speed of light, we are left to question some of the hypothesis of these bureaucratically over fed cosmologists.
One must question the hypothesis that 90% of the matter in the universe is invisible dark matter, yet light is able to pass such great distances unblocked and un-absorbed. The supposed vacuum force is many times greater than gravity, but curiously also invisible.
The last count on invisible universes also included five invisible dimensions. In addition to the four ‘visible dimensions’ of length, width, depth and time there were sorcerers equations for five more dimensions. A radio interview last week indicated that a hopeful cosmologist was seeking grants for two new additional invisible dimensions.
With unlimited funding we will soon find that we live in a universe with more invisible dimensions than Starbucks locations. What began with a real scientist and a Hooker at the observatory has turned into a science whorehouse. What we must do is to show these spend thrifts the real meaning of ‘invisible’ as in the invisible universe that we are all now experiencing.
We must show these NAS pimps and their cosmologist harlots the meaning of ‘invisible paycheck’, ‘invisible pension’ and ‘invisible health benefits’. It is time for the honest voices of science to demand that this circus side show be closed. I’m certain that Dr X would heartily agree. By the way, that engineer turned rogue astronomer is ME.
