Relativity Theory has survived more than 100 years and Big Bang Theory will also somehow complete its century. How powerful these theories are! We are told that scientists always struggle to devise (costly) methods to prove them wrong but every time these theories pass the test with flying colors.
Here I only say that they did not devise multi-million LIGO project only to disprove Einstein. There is no “Einstein was wrong” business in market. It is “Einstein was Correct” business which exists in market. Here I present two examples of my own interactions with representatives of science authorities that show that actually they have imposed an impassable barriers to ensure that their beloved theories may not be proven wrong by anyone.
First example is my interaction with a National level scientist (or representative of science) of my country in year 2007 when he told me that Editors of renowned science journals do not even bother to read any submission critical of Relativity Theory. Those submissions straight go to dustbin without anyone even read them:
Special Relativity is a closed case. We teach it to high school kids these days. The editor of the American Journal of Physics told me 30 years ago that he receives 10 attempts a month to question SR and dumps one as soon as he sees it.Feb-04, 2007.
Yes above discussion related to only Special Relativity. But we can guess that they might have done the same for any criticism of GR as well. But so far there is no hint for the “impassable barrier” which is the topic of this blog post. This hint mainly comes from personal experiences – when you try to criticize these official theories. However, my following interaction with a NASA Information Officer is capable to convey this hint to the general readers as well.
Sometime back I had conversation with a NASA Information Officer.
NASA Information Officer:
Nobody stops you from throwing GR and QM out if the window. But if you do so you have to cone up with an explanation fir ALL things these twk theories explain perfectly.
(This NASA officer was occasionally writing incorrect spellings. But this is not the point.)
Obviously all things cannot be thrown out with a single published paper. Now logic becomes.
Since a single paper cannot throw out all the things so that single paper will be rejected. Therefore second paper will also not be published.
And thus … actually no criticism of basic frameworks can ever be published through this peer review system
NASA Information Officer:
The big bang theory made many predictions which were all observed and confirmed. If you provide a new theory it is therefore necessary to explain all these observations. You can write a paper on a static universe.
You only have to explain redshift, cmb, finite age of stars, galactic evolution, absent of black dwarfs, elemental abundances, large scale structures,… and yes, in one paper.
My response was:
This is unfair. Standard model has not developed all these concepts through a single paper. Secondly all these things are ‘confirmed’ only through particular interpretations.
All these things can be interpreted in better way. But it is not fair to demand all the reinterpretations from a single paper. ……..
Thus apparently they do tell us that they devise expensive experimental projects to critically test these theories but actually they only intend to prove these theories correct. Apparently they do tell us that a single falsification will render these theories to dustbin but actually all the attempts to falsify straight go to dustbin without anyone actually read them. They have constructed (in their minds) sort of impassable barriers that any critique must pass. And I confidently assert here that even if it is done by anyone, they will come up with additional excuses that this or that thing is not covered etc.
And … do I intend to pass this impassable barrier?
Well, I do not intend to write a single paper or book which will falsify all the aspects of their beloved theories. Their theories do contain partial truth due to which apparently they do pass all those tests. But “Universe is Expanding” is not truth. “Dark Matter” and “Dark Energy” also do not exist. Gravity is not curvature of spacetime. Actual Newton is different from textbooks Newton such that actual Newton is more accurate. I am not going to explain all these things in a single paper or book. But I do will explain all these things here and there somewhere. I do not intend to pass any impassable barrier. Let them try to throw me in dustbin without even reading me. And let me try to survive those dustbins.
