Black holes are nonsense. There are no such things. Doesn't it strike ANYONE as funny that, black holes have so much gravity nothing can escape,
not even light. Except when it does. Oh, yeah, sometimes it even shoots out. And x rays too, which by the way are just another form of light. Oh,
and radio waves too. Yeah, that makes so much sense.
The astronomer Fred Hoyle once wrote of the herd mentality in his profession: “The trouble with conformity is that the process has strong positive
feedback. The baaing starts up at a volume low enough to permit stronger-minded animals to think for themselves without too much trouble.
Progressively, however, we break down one-by-one, losing all power of sensible judgement, to the point where we can do nothing but add our own baaing
to the uproar, which eventually rises to such monumental proportions that nothing remains for the flock except the butcher's shop.”
Scientists are people and not immune to the madness of crowds. Ideas that appear folly initially may with time and a growing clamour of consensus
delude people into believing it is a new "truth." Such is the story of black holes. Two years ago I criticised the theory of black holes and from
the correspondence I receive, some scientists and engineers are "recovering their senses slowly, one by one."
Black holes highlight a situation, common today in astrophysics, where the object under investigation cannot be seen directly. This situation is pure
heaven for the crowd of mathematical theorists who have hijacked physics from the natural philosophers and experimentalists. The sainted Einstein
seems to have initiated the hijacking with that oxymoron, the “thought experiment.” But problems arise when thoughts are governed by a limited set
of beliefs or dogmas and unchecked by direct observation or experiment. The result can be – and generally is – science fiction. University
libraries and popular science magazines are full of it at the start of this new millennium.
