Ghost particle found beneath Antarctica holds key to breakthrough in understanding the universe.

In another great scientific breakthrough that will make absolutely no difference to anything but is likely to cost taxpayers a pile of money as scientists scam research grants out of politicians by selling the idea that it is really important we understand and learn to control processes which have worked for billions of years without needing assistance from scientists, the mystery of the origins of light are set to be unlocked by the discovery of an elusive “ghost” particle a mile beneath Antarctica, scientists have announced.

Astronomers have for the first time identified the source of a high-energy neutrino which shot through a solid ice laboratory at the South Pole last year in “a “triumph that promises to revolutionise understanding of fundamental physics.”

Sorry but the only breakthrough I can see here is that these scientists have taken the idiotic hyoerbole of cosmology further away from reality than ever before. For people who have taken little interest in theoretical physics, Neutrinos are, according to people who believe the meaning of life can be found in equations, are virtually massless, subatomic particles which race across the universe, passing unnoticed through planets and stars. Despite their abundance – hundreds of billions pass through each human every second – they have so far proved impossible to detect because they interact with matter so rarely.

Or in layman’s terms, they are imaginary things like fairies, demons and the Disney Princess who sings “Let It Go,” in Frozen.

The alleged detection of this frozen neutrino on September 22 2017 has since, according to its discoverers, enabled scientists to identify its point of origin. Using a complex network of ground and space-based radiation telescopes and the highly advanced scientific technique of making stuff up, the international team traced the particle’s provenance to a flaring galaxy, or “blazar”, with a supermassive black hole at its heart four billion light years away.

Quantum mechanics theory tells us a particle doesn’t exist until it is observed (by a cat which is simultaneously dead and alive or something), so how can this one have been tracked back to it’s point of origin before it interacted with the astronomers in Antarctica last September?

Nutrinos, like many other sub atomic particles, are based on a theory that has been ‘proven’ using other theories. Presumably these theoretical particles, which remember, are ripping through your body tissue at a rate of millions per second without you noticing, will be used to prove other theories down the line, the kind of theories beloved of modern science, because the high pontiffs tell us that like God, they must to be considered true until someone can prove they are untrue.

When they do, the rest come tumbling down like dominoes.Big Bang theory proposes that before BigBang everything was compressed into a single mass, The Singularity, a mass varying in size between a grain of salt and a small planet (I go for a rat turd). Question what existed before Big Bang, what did this very singular rat turd live in, what existed outside it, and you will be told, usually rather tetchily, that nothing existed.

“The cosmic rat turd was floating around an infinite void then?” You offer only to be told that a void could not exist, nothing could exist outside the rat turd. All the voids, all the time and space, all everything was compressed into the rat turd.

“So the rat turd existed in infinity?” you venture.

“NO YOU IDIOT, NNNNOOOOO, infinity was in the rat turd,” your physicist debating partner will scream.

And thus all the theories of cosmology built around Big Bang collapse.

The sciencetits do not give up however, original theories are ‘tweaked’ to add some special rule to fit the real world again, dark matter is invented, or dark energy. Gravitational waves are conjured out of thin air to prop up failed theories. And again the scientific academe insists they must be assumed to be true because nobody can prove they aren’t.

It all keeps the academics busy consuming our tax money in the form of research grants, and living well while people whose work actually matters struggle.

I cannot be the only one who considers that modern physics (i.e. theoretical physics) in which any ‘proofs’ offered are nothing more than mathematical speculations based on other theories is a load of bollocks. Just as climate change scaremongers tell us ‘the science is settled’ and dismiss any criticism of the all too obvious flaws in their ‘science’, so physicists dismiss any criticism as coming from people outside their quasi – religious cult. My experience has shown that such attacks are used in self-interest. This latest non – revelation is just more of the same.

So long as politicians keep wasting our money funding them, physicists will continue to learn more and more about less and less until they know everything about nothing. Biologists and Chemists don’t have it so easy, they have to deal with things that exist in reality.

I should add here that in the 1980s I worked in several organisations involved in atomic research, and though my job was in computer systems, I learned a little from talking to the engineers and physicists involved in real world stuff. And those guys unanimously regard the theoreticians of the academic world as a bunch of clowns.

Missing airliner to be used as a bomb? Crazy Conspiracy Theory say US Liberals

March 16, 2014

The thing about lefties in the USA is when they decide hate somebody then no matter what that person says or does it will attract hysterical hate attacks from those neo Nazi ‘liberals’who are in fact anything but liberal. .

One such hate figure is Infowars front man Alex Jones (you may remember his melt down on British television when Piers Morgan said the US should ban civilian gun ownership.) Jones is barking mad, there is no doubt of that, he has no problem expounding theories about Satanist political cliques, The Nephilim returning or Reptillian Alien Shapeshifters running the world. However, he fronts a sort of news channel and not everything he says is crazy.

Except to the lefties who might think something is quite reasonable until Jones mentions it and then go into paroxisms of rage about how people should be jailed for spreading conspiracy theories and challenging the official government line.

The latest storm Alex Jones has stirred up concerns the missing Malaysian airlines Boeing 777 that disappeared into the plot of a ten year old television series and was LOST.

Jones is not the first to suggest the missing place might have been hijacked by people planning to pack it with explosives and use it in a terrorist attack. Far eastern politicians, aviation officials and Pentagon military experts have raised the possibility.

When Jones’ picked up the story however, the left went crazy. “Muslim fanatics hijacking planed and flying them into tall buildings in major cities,” they screamed, “What a stupid, racist suggestion. Islam is the religion of peace and no Muslim would ever contemplate doing such a thing.”

Alex Jones was just trying to stir up right wing not jobs by spreading fear and panic about dark skinned people and expounding crazy conspiracy theories that could never really happen, the Twitter feeds raged. What never? Not ever either in future or past? So 9/11 was just a crazy conspiracy theory dreamed up by Alex Jones? Or a false flag operation planned and executed by the US government maybe?

See what happens when people don’t think things through properly.
