Spandex Has-beens

“But anyone who hears these words of mine and does not obey them is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain poured down, the rivers flooded over, the wind blew hard against that house, and it fell. And what a terrible fall that was!”

(Matthew 7:26-27) Good News Translation

Has-been scientists with spandex. These are washed up university lecturers who like to impress young girls and boys with how cool they are, while promoting an untestable hypothesis like it’s real science.

And for those of you who think the balls on spandex IS the test of the hypothesis, you need to come back from fairy land and connect with reality.

We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.

Spandex University

Einstein warped the observation that light bends. This is how we get hasbeen lecturers teaching that the universe is a sheet of spandex.

The idea is that gravity causes space-time to be curved in such a way as to make the universe to be like a sheet of spandex, and thereby cause elliptical planetary orbits.

However, marbles on spandex isn’t a test of the hypothesis that planets from outside the solar system were caught by the gravity of the sun. That’s not testable, therefore it’s not scientific. It’s a test of the hypothesis that a has-been university lecturer can impress young boys and girls and, for a brief moment, feel like they’re really cool. It’s sleight-of-hand designed to help you casually miss the fact that the mainstream science community (SciPop) is making you take a leap of faith.

There’s no science here. The notion that gravity is a cone-shaped well around the sun isn’t testable. The idea that planets entered the solar system, got caught by the gravity of the sun, and that’s why they have elliptical orbits isn’t testable. We don’t like to entertain this kind of hack job educational stunt, but if the universe formed like this then planetary orbits should be getting smaller and smaller as everything falls in toward the sun. Obviously the planets aren’t falling into the sun, they’re held in place by a gravitational force from outside the solar system. This is why SciPop had to invent dark matter, another untestable hypotheses.
