your theory of how things work and putting evidence and etc to support just that narrow slice of the big picture.
As FreedomCommander stated
the ideas come from Joseph Cater, and the core issue is that Cater is
a person with extreme cognitive deficiencies, otherwise known as a "quack".
The following review of the book "The Awesome Life Force" by Joseph Cater provided some insight into the phenomenon we are dealing with regarding
claims which have no evidence to support them:
We laughed so hard we cried
...I laughed a lot at some of the ideas presented as fact with no signs of experimental data or study to back them up, lots of his evidence is
anecdotal and second hand, fractured and poorly constructed.
This lack of experimental data sounds familiar, doesn't it?
...I thought initially that the book was a satirical jab at 'alternative' science and conspiracy theories fans, but eventually realised that
Cater was serious about everything he writes. While his publishers say he is accademically discredited as a quack to hide the truth, the real truth is
that he IS a quack. It is a real shame, as the line between genius and insanity has been crossed, and what otherwise might have been a brilliant
scientist has lost his path.
I rate the book two stars. I'd like to give it more and I'd like to give it less. I'd hate to encourage the ignorant to read it, as it might be
taken too seriously. I'd give it 1 star as a book for people interested in science and understanding of the universe, for laymen in physics,
mathematics chemistry or philosophy. I give 3 stars for gnostics hoping to find hidden truths, some insights gleaned from the depths of madness. I'll
rate it 5 stars for conspiracy buffs and for scientifically minded people after a good laugh, it's too crazy for words and must be read for full
There is a caution about some people taking Cater's work too seriously in that review, and I fear that FreedomCommander either
didn't see that warning, or did see it and failed to heed it. Or he missed the part that "While his publishers say he is accademically discredited
as a quack to hide the truth, the real truth is that he IS a quack." The reviewer seems like a somewhat open minded person but to use Carl Sagan's
phrase, it's good to have an open mind, but not so open that your brain falls out. Some of these Cater ideas are of the "brain falling out" variety
as we have seen in this thread.
Cater wrote other books called "The Ultimate Reality" (the book FreedomCommander referenced as his source) and "Advice from an Alien", and while
only the latter was promoted as fiction, even the books that don't claim to be fictional contain claims not supported by evidence, consistent with
the book review.
So it's pointless to ask for evidence supporting these ideas....there isn't any.
