This maybe the opinion of some unknown scientists who scarcely exist on the fringes of modern science, however the excepted theory by the broader scientific community clearly provides demonstratable evidence that the Big Bang theory, expansion and black holes definitively exist. If you disagree I will assert that simply you don't understand the science enough to make an educated claim regarding the validity of some of the most researched fields in modern Astrophysics.Erribert wrote: ↑May 7th, 2018, 1:25 amHi Halc,
The theories of relativity are being shot down all the time! What are you talking about. How many journals in physics do you read?
Give me a break! It has become extremely obvious that the universe is not expanding. There was no Big Bang, black holes cannot exist. This is all published in peer reviewed journals. Maybe it just doesn’t make it to NPR, but so what.
Ok, so clearly you've misunderstood what relativity has to say about gravity.Have you ever gone through Einstein’s derivation of his field equations? His first step is to say that gravity has nothing to do with mass. If this were true, how does one weigh apples on a scale? Einstein claims that gravity is not a force, but something else. Really? How does a field travel? Just go through the derivations. They are online.
First, scales don't measure mass, they measure weight and weight is relative to gravity however mass is not. You have clearly abbreviated and cherry picked bits and pieces of Einsteins theory (this is typically the case when people attempt to debunk theories).
Therefore we can talk about mass or energy without the necessity to speak of gravity.
Next, you have again misrepresented Einsteins position, Einstein explains gravity as the warping and stretching of Spacetime not as a field which simply pulls things. The gravitational field which we speak about in science refers to how gravity interacts between objects and how we measure those interactions.
You are wrong again, the speed of light remains constant to the observer, therefore when calculating equations over great distances we can use the speed of light as a universal constant....meaning our own speed would be irrelevant.Einstein’s second postulate (assumption) in his theory of special relativity is that the speed of light is constant. Really? Well that’s easy for him to say. Light slows down when it goes through water, go figure. Einstein thought space was a vacuum. Satellites are now showing us that it is anything but a vacuum. 99.99% of our universe is plasma. It can be measured right outside our atmosphere. Ever heard of solar winds? How can there be a wind in a vacuum.
Light slows down at different rates when traveling through all states, it's called the refractive index and has nothing to doing the constant speed described by relativity.
