Give a grown man a baloon......
The illustration of a balloon with spots on it is lame.
Each spot represents a galaxy. What are Galaxies?
Galaxies are area’s of mostly empty space where planets and stars gathered loosely in generally a flat disk formation. They entire collection of planets and stars rotate as if they are connected. They fly in formation. So in a Galaxy, there is mostly empty space, but there is significanlty more stars and stuff than other areas of "empty" space.
Now back to the Big Bang.
Because of the first inflation, the universe increased in size so fast that matter, stuff with real mass, would have had to break Einstein’s law about nothing can go faster than light, as according to Big Bang-ologists the size increased thousands of times faster than light speed.
So what feeble excuse can they dream up to protect their spiritual leader from embarrassment?
Well, here is the lame excuse.
"The matter can’t go faster than light speed, but Einstein did not say anything about SPACE going faster than light speed, so there we have our fine print escape from logic and reason. IT WAS SPACE THAT EXPANDED FASTER THAN LIGHT.
But any first grader will know that anything, ANYTHING that was HERE then suddenly is way the hell over THERE, MOVED.
We may not know why it moved, but it has moved.
Do a quick calculation and we find that it must have had a velocity. Even if expanding space was the prime mover, the result is that matter moved at the calculated velocity.
It does not matter if Explosives, Petrol, Boy Scouts, God or Space expanding was the cause of the matter moving in relation to all the other matter.
The distances between the objects in space became greater, over a very short time. They moved at greater than light speed.
No way around it, even if you are a Professor and own a balloon with spots.
And remembering what Galaxies are, mostly space with some stuff flying in formation, well, if space expanded and still is expanding, then so too is the space that forms the bulk of every Galaxy.
Here is a revised image showing that everything that has space, must "expand" the same as the rest of space. The actual planets within the galaxies, would not like having their delicate gravitational orbits disturbed after all the surrounding planets and suns exapnded away by several billion light years. Their "gravity wells" would dissapear, and so would their orbit. They would each just fly away in straight vectors.
So not only is the universe expanding, but also every galaxy is also expanding at that same rate. So if the universe expanded a billion percent, then so did the every galaxy.
Actually if the universe expanded a billion percent it would still be ZERO, as it was Nothing to begin with!
But of course none of this is true. This only exists in Mathemagicial model of a make believe Universe that bears no resemblance to our real Universe.
We need Theoretical Cosmologists to make up shit like this, because we need more material for SiFi movies. But you say, “How can the matter from the Big Bang move thousands of times faster than light speed then?"
Well, you could start by considering the obvious, that the Big Bang is a really crappy theory, so of course real observations and rational, critical thought will always find continuing problems with it.
The whole thing started when they observed “red shift” in distant Galaxies.They concluded that Galaxies must be moving away, some at faster than light speed. Therefore, an accelerating, expanding Universe.
However, this is nothing but a conclusion drawn by simplistic minds, based on some observed data.
What other conclusions could have been drawn to account for the observation?
SEVERAL in fact.
And each of them provide a more sane, rational and logical explanation of the APARENT Red Shift. More that one conclusion can and should be made about the meaning of Red Shift.
Additionally, the other theories are based on classic, established, well proven principals of Science, and Physics.
They don’t lead to crazy ideas about Parallel Universes, Black Holes, Worm Holes, String Theory, bent space and time, time dilation, length contraction and other fantasies.
So don’t be a lazy student, relying on your teachers or those in Authority or especially me, to show you these “other theories”, go find them yourself. Spend some time on Google, ignoring the all pervading mainstream stuff, and likewise the tin foil hat disinformation material. Somewhere in the middle ground lies common sense. Seek and you will find.
OK, here is a reprint from a recent article by a Cornell Ph.D. who aparently specializes in BullShit.
Question: "Some sources indicate that the big bang caused an expansion which traveled faster than the speed of light. How can this be?"
Kristine: "You ask a good question, one whose answer lies in the subtle difference between expansion that is faster than the speed of light and the propagation of information that is faster than the speed of light. The latter is forbidden by fundamental physical laws, but the former is allowed; that is, as long as you are not transmitting any information (like a light pulse), you can make something happen at a speed that is faster than that of light. The expansion of the Universe is a "growth" of the spacetime itself; this spacetime may move faster than the speed of light relative to some other location, as long as the two locations can't communicate with each other (or, in terms of light rays, these two parts of the Universe can't see each other). According to the theory of inflation, the Universe grew by a factor of 10 to the sixtieth power in less than 10 to the negative thirty seconds, so the "edges" of the Universe were expanding away from each other faster than the speed of light; however, as long as those edges can't see each other (which is what we always assume), there is no physical law that forbids it."
Kristine Spekkens, Ph.D Cornell and now at Queens University. Kristine aparently studies how to make garbage seem like gold. She and her mates like Kip Thorn, Leonard Susskind, and others, have invented a new, even more stupid twist to the whole already stupid story, perhaps because too many people were asking awkard questions about their sanity.
This latest excuse to get around the obvious truth that Einstein is wrong, and/or the Big Bang is wrong, is really "Out There" in terms of weirdness. By their reckoning, the weirder and more complex something is, the better it is for them to keep their jobs and to keep us from thinking we may be able to ever understand them.
Anyone else who starts saying stuff like this they would lock you away. But drop "Einstein" into the middle of the insane statement and now its all OK.
After all, Professional Scientists are the "elite experts" who are qualified to think for us. When they decide, they will tell us what we must believe. Ordinary folk are encouraged to just accept and then go watch TV.
It was quite recently that the experts quielty dropped their earllier "truth" idea that the matter just got "carried away" within the expanding space, (meaning that matter would have had to move at faster than light speed) in favor of their new super duper stupid idea.
So now they have converted a metaphor from the Movie "The Matrix", and decided that we all live as holograms, and that the only real thing is "information". You know, like bits and bytes in a computer. NOW they say that the information CAN travel faster than light, "as long as those edges (of the universe) can't see each other, there is no physical law that forbids it."
Lucky Einstein did not make any Law about this, or else the universe would have had to do it some other way! Rember the golden rule that trumps all others, Einstein is ALWAYS right, even when he was wrong, he was on the right track, DO NOT EVER GO AGAINST HIM!
But if those naugthy little "other edges" of the universe HAD peeked at the other edges (on an expanding sphere, edges?) and seen what they were up to, then they could not have moved so fast. Maybe they did it while the first edges were asleep?
So now we have "computer like "information travelling at faster than light speed, and light speed traveling faster than itself......but what's the use of getting only some "information" to the other side of the universe without the rest of the equipment, the galaxies made of the real physical matter? The Big Bang model says that the actual matter also got to the other side of the universe, not only the information.
This is what you are paying for when you want to get your degree. Perfect rubbish of the best kind.
Now on a slightly different but related topic, here’s something I’m confused about, (one of many you might say!) If you have an answer, please let me know by posting a comment.
If the mathemagicians have “discovered” the Big Bang by tracing back the positions of the galaxies in time, till all the Galaxies were in one spot, then they should be able to tell us where that origin iis located today, in relation to where Earth is now. But that say that there is NO origin for the big bang, which itself IS the origin of the universe. So the Big Bang was a spot, nowhere, and everywhere, it expanded from that spot, and matter from that expansion is still following the same trajectory, but there is no starting point. They traced the expansion backwards to a spot that does not exist in any location.
I get it now!
Cosmologists and Mathemagicians are either stupid or they are hiding something from us and feeding us confusing rubbish to keep generations of us common folk ignorant.
There are few other choices.
I don’t think they are stupid. Surely they can’t be so self centered that they can’t admit they are wrong.
But why is it that you never hear a Cosmologist go on TV and start talking about ANY theory that would destroy Einstein’s Relativity, or the Big Bang?
We know that there are such theories, and now we know that they make more sense, and unlike the Big Bang, the other theories may actually be correct!
But those theories never get any air-time. Popularizers of Science like Neil deGrasse Tyson, Brian Cox, Michio Kaku and Lawrence Krauss never even hint that there are in fact alternative feasible concepts on these subjects, Alternative theories that leave no room for Relativity or the Big Bang.
They talk in absolutes about Relativity and Cosmology as if it’s a done deal, as if it was actually "settled science", and go so far as to ridicule anyone that does not agree with them. The idea that someone has another contrary theory is actually laughed at. It's never critically considered. Yet better and more reasonable theories exist.
However all we ever get to hear are more “additive crackpot ideas” that continue to support or expand on Einstein’s Relativity and the Big Bang.
Even Holywood, with every new SciFi movie, adds its powerful influence to the promotion of these wacky and irrational concepts. Where are the movies that go against the flow?
How have we arrived at this insane state of what can only be called Psuedo Science?
Certainly not because the current theories are rational, or that better ideas don’t exist. I'll leave it up to you to figure out the politics, or the underlying causes.
People are often discouraged to think about these subjects themselves, because of often repeated statements such as:
“If the mainstream theory is wrong, what is your theory that is correct? Ha Ha, you don’t have one, so meanwhile I’ll trust in the majority of mainstream scientists, and let them figure it out for me. They will announce the truth later I’m sure. After all, they have all awarded each other papers from their own University to prove they think each other is smart. They are in their exclusive “smart club”, and you don’t understand it.”
Two problems with this way of thinking.
Truth in any form is rarely to be found in mainstream thinking. Mainstream is comprised mostly of the non thinkers. The followers, The Regurgitators of approved dogma, The TV watchers, the sports addicts, the Students that just want to pass the next exam. Mainstream is static, waiting for someone else who is superior to us to reveal our next thoughts for us. Everything is OK, experts watch over us, go watch the Kardashians of Football, or both.
Today, a successful student is a loyal follower, not a rebel. Not a free thinker, not a creative thinker or critical thinker. Free thought is forbidden.
If he was in any way a free thinker, then he would quickly find himself outside the University gates, empty handed, as many have over the years.
Galileo, Copernicus, Confucius, Newton, Edison, Tesla, ANYONE who ever had an original thought was invariably "off side" with the Mainstream.
Likewise, while Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz were creating Calculus to solve their problems, there were always going to be tinfoil hat wearing crazy people, call them religious nuts, also writing down their ideas. There are a lot of these guys.
You have to have some discernment.
What makes you think we can’t do away with a false theory on a subject just because we don’t have an alternative theory to replace it with?
Many times, the only truthful and rational thing to say is “We don’t know”
Don’t be scared of this. There is no need to cling on to garbage just because we don't posses gold.
Why now do you choose to follow along with the masses? When independant thought has proved so powerful? Think for yourself for a change.
