A viewer's comment to one of the many electric/plasma YouTube videos (Plasma Universe) series is:
"The plasma universe is currently enjoying
success as a 'Big-Bang basher.'
In due course, its own weaknesses will begin receiving more attention.
The lesson is clear: Creationists should be especially cautious about accommodating new science
ideas, even if they oppose evolutionary models like the Big Bang.
The replacement may be even
worse than the original problem!
Steady State, Big Bang, Plasma — naturalistic theories
of origins will continue to rise and fall."
I agree caution is always warranted!
Nevertheless many prominent, technically competent people are lining up on the electric - plasma universe
side, both creationists and others.
Gravity is a weak force -- not nearly strong enough to
hold galaxies together, cause matter to come together to form stars, or even to form planets, moons, etc.
Thus, ad hoc (smoke and mirrors) features must be alleged to exist, or added to the gravity model to make
it seem viable.
Plasma, an ionized gas, is a fourth state of matter, along
with liquid, solid and gas.
Fluorescent lights, neon lights, Aurora Borealis, are said to be plasma
in glow mode, lightning is said to be plasma in arc mode.
The Sun's corona is plasma.
Cosmology in Crisis, another YouTube video notes, as do other sites, that:
95%+ of the mass necessary
to make the gravity model work, is missing - so "Missing Mass," or "Dark Matter," must be said
to exist, when no one can actually find it by any actual, observable means.
Likewise "black holes," "neutron stars," an expanding "Big Bang" universe, none
of which are actually proven to exist, must be said to exist to make the entrenched Gravity model work.
Magnetic fields are only caused by flow of electric current,
model cannot explain the numerous magnetic fields detected in space by radio telescopes and space probes.
The above site says, "In order to understand the phenomenon in a certain plasma region, it is necessary to map
not only the magnetic, but also the electric field and electric currents."
Another site, the
Electric Universe Theory (site) also highlights the importance of electricity throughout the Universe.
It also notes
many existing natural electrical phenomena, like, lightning, St Elmo's Fire, the Sun's corona, the Aurora Borealis, etc. -- all known properties of plasmas (ionized "gases").
Plasmas make up
an astonishing 99.999% of the visible universe, and react strongly to electro-magnetic fields.
a statement -- that plasma makes up almost the entire visible universe!
The electric plasma universe
makes it possible to reconcile Biblical chronology with science.
All earth or cosmos dating
methods involve unprovable assumptions.
In a following section, I cite Barry Setterfield's
view that changing cosmic conditions have caused changing light speed and atomic run rates, so that Biblical dating accords
with what we actually KNOW from science.
Several sites bring up the subject of the "peer
review" procedure in science publishing.
One site commented on the "peer-review"
thing -- that in quiet times it works well, but NOT in revolutionary times, where fierce competition
and strong passions may put reviewers under great pressure to conform to standard theory.
Electric force is literally zillions of times stronger than gravity and seems clearly, much better able to explain
many features of cosmology than the gravity model.
As in other "origins" issues,
there are folks with lots of credentials and experience on BOTH sides of the issue.
So, there is, I suspect, a big spiritual component, of course.
Is it possible that
an Electric cosmos seems much harder to envision as originating from naturalistic accident, than the standard Gravity and
matter cosmos model?
It seems hard to envision the complex electric plasma cosmos as
not carefully made.
With the standoff between the two sides, lay folks can boldly rejoice, or
breathe a sigh of relief, in a sense, and fully realize, that no one has the "market
As one speaker said, "Just when we think we have it all figured out, some
new surprise pops up, and we must again realize, it is another part of a big puzzle we only thought we understood.
Perhaps we should remember, and chuckle, at Mark Twain's comment on science.
Twain said, "There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such
a trifling investment of facts."
Nevertheless "duty calls" to
God and fellow man, that we work to resolve things.
There are many YouTube videos and other
great web sites on the subject.
In the following sections I point to two Christian men,
experts in the science of the Cosmos, and also, in the Bible.
As I have said so loudly at this
site, one MUST put the Bible and Science together.
This is just like jury duty
These two expert men absolutely DO this.
These two and many others speak of the great
resistance to change of the establishment, even in light of seriously contradictory data and observations,
Several times I have seen serious scientists quote Lewis Carroll.From Lewis
Carroll's Alice in Wonderland we remember:
laughed: "There's no use trying," she said; "one can't believe impossible things."
"I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was younger, I always did it for
half an hour a day.
Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
The point these scientists are making is that entrenched science can come to be just as silly, postulating impossible
things to try to salvage a favorite theory.
Perhaps the Electric/plasma cosmos paradigm
shift will clear out some of this foolishness.
