I'd like to start this thread off by saying that science is an invaluable conception for man. Without it where would we be today? How would we advance
as a race? How could we save the lives of our loved ones? Get to work on time? And post threads on ATS?
It opens the doors to things we didn't even think were possible, but, is Mainstream Science always right?
I digress here - Since a young age i've always pondered the deeper questions in life; Who am I? Where do I come from? Where do stars come from?
And when I was 16 (9 yrs ago), I asked myself - Where did the water on Earth come from?
I worked out logically, since a Comet is a ball of Ice (or Ice Star), and in Earths past it has been bombarded with all kinds of space objects from
Asteroid to Meteorites, the at some point a Comet impacted too!
Sun melts Ice - Ice becomes Water - Water evaporates - Evaporation makes/causes an oxygenic atmospher. Bingo, i'm a genius I thought. Looking back in
hindsight it makes even more sense now. H20. Hydrogen TO Oxygen!
From that day i've always believed that all the neccessary elements and ingredients for all of Earths Life forms were "Stored" in a Comet.
6-7yrs later Scientists claim Protein is contained within a Comet! No reward for me. Guess you need at least High School qualifications.
Now to the main thread.
I've been wondering lately about how objects are viewed. Both here on Earth and everywhere else in the universe. You see Mainstream Science suggests
(Rather Accepts), that before we can view an object, we have to wait for light to bounce off that object and reach our eyes.
So when we look at say Jupiter (I'm not going into the Maths even though I could) we aren't seeing Jupiter as it is now, but Jupiter as it was 5
I don't believe this and here are a few interesting Questions/Reasons as to why! Some points in here are irrelevant and Hypothetical, but are relevant
to the point I'm making.
1. Let's say an Asteroid and Light started thier travel towards Earth at the Exact same time and path. Let's say the Asteroid travels faster than C
(say 200000 MPH).
Would we be able to prevent an Earth impact from that Asteroid? No, of course not, because the Asteroid reaches Earth before the light does, therefore
we can't see it!
NOW Let's have the same scenario. Only this time Light has a thousand year head start. Now when the Asteroid is on it's impact course with Earth could
we prevent it?
Yes you say? Well since science says you can't see an object until light bounces off an object and reaches your eyes, then you my friend are wrong.
This Asteroid is travelling faster than light, so before the light hit your eyes from this Asteroid you'd be dead!
2. Lets say you go to your shed with a torch in your hand. There's a tv in the corner with a film playing (pretend you can't see the tv until the
torchlight hits it). You switch on your torch and the light only travels a few centimeters a minute.
(Wouldn't you see the torch light ripping through the darkness of the shed?)
Eventually when the light hits the tv (your dad's sitting in the oppossite corner watching), do we see it immediately or have we to wait for the light
to bounce back?
It would be stupid if we had to wait for it to bounce back don't you think?
Your dad's already told you "She dies at the end", because he was 5 minutes ahead of you.
3. On the tv subject. May I add slowing down light is a "theme" of this thread since I believe it puts things into perspective better.
Again let's say that you are standing 100 ft away from a huge outdoor cinema screen and a film starts. But again the tv light is travelling a few
centimeters a minute. Does that mean eventually when the light reaches me - and I then proceed to walk forward that the film will start to "Fast
Forward"? And if I walk backwards it "Rewinds"?
My uncle nearly P'd himself when I asked him that yesterday.
It would be like travelling to Kepler 22b at a fairly moderate speed and seeing rapid changes to its planet the closer you get. It seems absurd to
4. When a man looks through a telescope, and observes a star a light year away, does that REALLY mean that's how the star was last year?
Because seriously that means that the star is God damn knows where at the present time, hell it could hit Earth in 5 minutes time while he's still
observing it because it's current light won't reach is for another year!
I actually believe the star is being viewed as it is in it's current state. How it looks, Where it is and how it's being observed
In fact I believe everything in the Universe is how it is currently, when observed, and NOT 500yrs, 2000yrs or 5billion yrs ago, but now.
I believe the eyes are Senors of light and can see it wherever it is or hits, without it having to touch our eyes. I believe that as soon as light
hits an object then our eyes can see and perceive that object as it is right now.
I am sure alot of people are going to try and educate me on the Mainstream belief, but i'm a free thinker and this is what I honestly believe.
I hope you enjoyed the thread.
ETA: I had alot more logic to add to this last night but I forgot about alot of it.
If in the next couple of years you find a science article reading "We Were Wrong: Universe Is As Observed", don't forget this thread
