TUaS, at http://www.newtoeu.com/ you can read reviews of Findlay's book, download a free PDF, and see links to other websites.

"newtoeu" is short for "new to electric universe".

Comment by Tom Sarbeck 9 hours ago
TUaS, Tom Findlay's book on the electric universe is a free download on the internet. A paper copy may cost almost forty dollars, but you might find it at your public library, maybe via interlibrary loan. The Big Bang is an extremely expensive taxpayer-supported fantasy.

TUaS, despite all you've heard and seen, the Big Bang story (inflation, the cosmic microwave background radiation, black holes, dark matter, dark energy, neutron stars, strings, et cetera) is a collection of untested and untestable hypotheses. It started in the 1920s with an incorrect interpretation of Edwin Hubble's red shift, that it's a measure of distance rather than a measure of age.

Okay, if there was no Big Bang, no Inflation after the Big Bang how do explain the evidence that there was a Big Bang?

Comment by Tom Sarbeck 16 hours ago
You are right, CtU, plenty of Bangers have written plenty of papers. The problem is that none of them provide evidence that the "Big Sausage" occurred.
There is no evidence for gods and there is no evidence for the Big Bang. That's news to you, isn't it?

Bangers and mash, also known as sausages and mash, is a traditional British Isles dish made of mashed potatoes and sausages, the latter of which may consist of a variety of flavoured sausage made of pork or beef or a Cumberland sausage. It is sometimes served with onion gravy, fried onions, baked beans, or peas.

As far as evidence for the Big Bang there are plenty of Bangers who have written papers on the Big Bang. Cosmic Inflation etc

Ethan Siegal has no evidence for the Big Bang.

Nor do any Bangers.

They do have millions of words and a few failed attempts to find evidence, the most recent being a failed attempt to find primordial gravitational waves, a failed attemp to find any such waves, and a failed attempt to find a Higgs boson.

The discussion about Black Holes is from a well known science blog


he has 76 blogs on black holes


Comment by Tom Sarbeck 22 hours ago

Re the black hole post, is this discussion about science (the stuff that has evidence) or about science fiction?
