UNFINISHED MORE LATER.
(((It was 1966 when Halton Chip Arp proved that the Hubble doctrine was wrong. By “Hubble Doctrine” I mean..
Maths on the basis of what you can see from the earth, which wasn’t much.
Crankery properly defined …… no hanging offense ….. Mainstream unscience properly defined ….. utterly devastating )))
This will be a lazy post. Just basically me shouting between the lines at Fatty-Baez-zzz’ idiocy from 1998. Thats twelve years ago now but it looks like Fatty-Baez made donkey of that year, a one jack-ass race. Instead of just snidely abusing and obstructing anyone who proved his stupid ideas were baseless, the dumb fuck actually wrote up a belligerent attack on the scientific method. Thats what it amounts to on a psychological level. Since its a screed wherein Fatty-Baez manages to perform the quantum miracle of typing while closing his eyes tight and sticking his fingers deep into his ears until they touch. Fatty-John C Baez, appears to be utterly determined to lock in his stupidity. He appears to be determined to make his stupidity TERMINAL. The 1998 Screed might be called “Fatty Baez, On The Virtue Of Terminal Stupidity.”
Just to show you what a live one we have here, look below. This silly cunt thinks that PARTICLES CARRY FORCES. And we are not talking like a sandblasting type of force, like you might expect from a volley of many millions of particles. More like special delivery wrong-way forces. More like “Hey look I got a force in the mail.” Or something like “See this briefcase? I have in it half-a dozen forces. Multi-directional and going at a discount.” I want to make it quite clear that this dumb fat bastard isn’t talking about some sort of kinetic impact force. No. He’s talking about magical, make-believe, quantum forces. He believes in them. He believes in them because he is an idiot.
(((He’s a cousin to Joan Baez; lefty folk singer. Well thats something going for him I suppose. She sang a spine-tingling version of “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.” Its such a good version it doesn’t seem to matter that she is a fella in the song. She’s got a few live versions but you have to hear the one with all the strings and the massive vocal backup in the chorus. I’ll try and find it. Most of the power of it seems to come from the vocal arrangement ……… No no good. The version I wanted doesn’t have good enough sound quality. ))))
“Besides the particles that carry forces (the photon, W and Z boson, and gluons), all elementary particles we have seen so far fit neatly into three “generations” of particles called leptons and quarks…..”
In fact its not possible for any particle to carry a force. Except as a volley, or as some sort of stationary adhesive. But this isn’t what he is talking about.
“How can we merge quantum theory and general relativity to create a quantum theory of gravity? How can we test this theory?”
Bonehead. Why would you want to do that? Why not ditch both and figure out what is really going on. Anyhow since he wrote the “crackpot index” in 1998 he pretty much locked himself in to having a non-existent research career. He was only 26 or 27 years old when he wrote this nonsense. And he has no discoveries to his name and how could he? The way to make these discoveries would be to keep it a secret that you knew modern physics was all nonsense, develop your own theories, make your discoveries using your own theories, then when you report your results, bullshit everyone and try and couch things in politically correct terms.
But Fatty-Baez is apparently too stupid to work that out so he discovered nothing at all because of his know-nothing attitude. Here is what he is alleged to have been working on:
“He is known for his work on spin foams in loop quantum gravity. More recently, his research has focused on applications of higher categories to physics.”
Got it. Spin foams in loop quantum gravity. In other words nothing at all to do with the real world.
“Additionally, Baez is known on the World Wide Web as the author of the crackpot index.”
The Crackpot Index was just cut and paste on my blog yesterday. Its a good summary of the incredible stupidity we find from public service scientists. The level of dysfunction is not a small thing. Its huge. These useless lumps of lard like Fatty-Baez, ought to all be sacked. But then this might force them to help others find out what is really going on. They could be helpful so long as they knew they were just servants to serious people, and so long as they were full of fear at losing their job.
THE Crackpot Index.
The insults you see here directed at PZ Myers, only came about because it was one of the Myers sycophants who posted the crackpot index. I didn’t know who Baez was. They all have the same attitude these stupid people. But Baez was stupid enough to put it on display. I’ve sent Baez an insulting email. Which is basically what follows, cut and pasted:
FURTHER DELINIATION OF THE PZ MYERS APPROACH TO SCIENCE. BRANDING LOGICAL PEOPLE AS CRANKS BY WAY OF A POINT SYSTEM. YOU COULD NOT MAKE THIS IDIOCY UP. BUT THIS IS HOW THESE UNSCIENTISTS THINK.
A simple method for rating potentially revolutionary contributions to physics:
A -5 point starting credit.
1 point for every statement that is widely agreed on to be false.
AGREED BY WHOM?
(((2 points for every statement that is clearly vacuous.
HOW COULD MAINSTREAM PHYSICS JUDGE SUCH A THING. HAVING REJECTED LOGIC?
3 points for every statement that is logically inconsistent.
YOU MUST MEAN THE DOCTRINE OF TIME DILATION RIGHT?
5 points for each such statement that is adhered to despite careful correction.)))
SO IT DOESN’T MATTER IF THE CORRECTION WASN’T CORRECT RIGHT?
BLUFF AND PROJECTION
(((5 points for using a thought experiment that contradicts the results of a widely accepted real experiment.)))
WIDELY ACCEPTED BY WHOM
5 points for each word in all capital letters (except for those with defective keyboards).
5 points for each mention of “Einstien”, “Hawkins” or “Feynmann”.
IDIOCY. THE FUCKING MORON PZ MYERS QUOTED FEYNMANN WHEN HE WAS GIVING A SPEECH IN MY COUNTRY.
10 points for each claim that quantum mechanics is fundamentally misguided (without good evidence).
THE ABOVE STATEMENT PROOF THAT THE QUANTUM HANGERS ON ARE AMONGST THE STUPIDEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. YOU CANNOT MAKE THE ABOVE STUPIDITY UP. ANY QUESTIONING OF THE STUPID IDEAS OF THE PUBLIC SECTOR IS IMMEDIATELY HELD TO BE THE SUBJECT OF SCORN. QUANTUM PHYSICS IS IDIOCY, SINCE IT PROPOSES NO STRUCTURE FOR THE LITTLE WORLD. NO SHAPE. EVERYTHING MATHEMATICAL THE DUMB BASTARDS DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY MEAN WHEN THEY SAY THINGS. THEY GET SHIRTY IF YOU TALK ABOUT ORBITS. BUT THEN AFTER CHANGING THE WORD TO ORBITALS, THE MORONS CANNOT TELL YOU WHY OR DEFINE AN ORBITAL. QUANTUM MECHANICS ADVOCATES MUST BE THE MOST STUPID PEOPLE IN THE WORLD.
10 points for pointing out that you have gone to school, as if this were evidence of sanity.
YOU CANNOT DEFEND YOURSELF AGAINST LYING CHARGES WHEN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT IDIOTS LIKE PZ MYERS.
10 points for beginning the description of your theory by saying how long you have been working on it. (10 more for emphasizing that you worked on your own.)
ANYTHING YOU SAY WILL BE USED TO CONDEMN YOU UNDER THE PZ MYERS APPROACH.
10 points for mailing your theory to someone you don’t know personally and asking them not to tell anyone else about it, for fear that your ideas will be stolen.
A TRUE SCIENTIST WOULD ONLY BE TOO HAPPY TO LISTEN TO ANY NEW IDEAS.
10 points for offering prize money to anyone who proves and/or finds any flaws in your theory.
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU DO, YOU CANNOT SHAME OR BRIBE THINKING OUT OF SOMEONE AS STUPID AS PZ MYERS.
10 points for each new term you invent and use without properly defining it.
TIME FOR THE BULLY BOYS TO LOOK IN THE MIRROR.
10 points for each statement along the lines of “I’m not good at math, but my theory is conceptually right, so all I need is for someone to express it in terms of equations”.
YOU DON’T EVEN NEED THAT. A GOOD THEORY DESCRIBES THINGS. AND MATHEMATICAL FORMULAS ARE NO SUBSTITUTE FOR THEORY. QUALITATIVE REASONING IS INDEED MORE IMPORTANT THAN MATHS. BUT BOTH ARE NEEDED. NOT NECESSARILY IN THE ONE PERSON. MATHS IS A TOOL. LIKE A HAMMER OR A CHAINSAW.
10 points for arguing that a current well-established theory is “only a theory”, as if this were somehow a point against it.
NO ARGUMENT NO MATTER HOW RATIONAL WILL BE ACCEPTABLE. IT IS IMPORTANT TO POINT OUT THAT DUMB THEORIES ARE IN FACT ONLY THEORIES. BUT WHEN IT COMES TO SPECIAL RELATIVITY AND THE BIG BANG THESE NEVER GOT PAST THEORY STAGE. SINCE THEY LACKED EVIDENCE IN THEIR FAVOUR. AND THEY WERE SUBSEQUENTLY PROVED WRONG.
10 points for arguing that while a current well-established theory predicts phenomena correctly, it doesn’t explain “why” they occur, or fails to provide a “mechanism”.
ANOTHER GOOD ARGUMENT NOT ACCEPTABLE BECAUSE OF IT BEING A GOOD ARGUMENT. SPECIAL RELATIVITY HAD SOME PREDICTIVE VALUE EARLY ON. NOT A GREAT DEAL BY THE WAY. WE ALREADY KNEW MERCURY’S ORBIT SO THAT WASN’T A PREDICTION OF SPECIAL RELATIVITY. THE BIG BANG THEORY DIDN’T PREDICT ANYTHING SUCESSFULLY. WHERE THE DECEPTION IS HERE IS THAT WHEN AN IDIOT LIKE PZ MYERS SAYS THAT WORD “PREDICT” HE DOESN’T MEAN IT. HE MEANS THAT THE THEORY COULD ACCOMMODATE THE DATA AFTER THE FACT.
10 points for each favorable comparison of yourself to Einstein, or claim that special or general relativity are fundamentally misguided (without good evidence).
MAINSTREAM PHYSICS IS ALL ABOUT THE CULT OF PERSONALITY.
10 points for claiming that your work is on the cutting edge of a “paradigm shift”.
NO MATTER HOW HONEST YOU ARE IT WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU.
20 points for emailing me and complaining about the crackpot index. (E.g., saying that it “suppresses original thinkers” or saying that I misspelled “Einstein” in item 8.)
THATS PRECISELY WHAT THE STUPID CUNT IS DOING. ACTUALLY I’M GOING TO FIND OUT WHO WROTE THIS IDIOCY AND EMAIL HIM. JUST TO POINT OUT WHAT A LAUGHABLE STUPID CUNT HE IS. I MIGHT GO AND POKE FUN AT HIM IN LECTURES.
20 points for suggesting that you deserve a Nobel prize.
I WOULDN’T WISH SUCH IGNOMY ON A WORST ENEMY.
20 points for each favorable comparison of yourself to Newton or claim that classical mechanics is fundamentally misguided (without good evidence).
THIS FELLOW IS SO FUCKING DUMB, HE DOESN’T REALISE HE IS TOTALLY AGAINST CLASSICAL MECHANICS.
20 points for every use of science fiction works or myths as if they were fact.
YOU MEAN LIKE THE MYTH OF THE SINGULARITY? THE MYTH OF AN ULTIMATE SPEED LIMIT?THE MYTH OF THE BIG BANG? THE PHOTON-MYTH? THE MYTHICAL SPACE-TIME?
DUMB FUCKING MORONIC PROJECTION AGAIN.
20 points for defending yourself by bringing up (real or imagined) ridicule accorded to your past theories.
I’D JUST BASH THIS CUNT ON SIGHT IF HE TRIED TO RIDICULE ME. SEE WHO WOULD BE LAUGHING THEN.
20 points for naming something after yourself. (E.g., talking about the “The Evans Field Equation” when your name happens to be Evans.)
COMPLETELY FUCKING NORMAL BEHAVIOUR. ANY THEORY I HAVE I’M CALLING IT AFTER ME. THIS IS CLEARLY SAID BY SOMEONE TOO USELESS TO SUSS OUT A NEW IDEA AND JEALOUS OF HIS SUPERIORS.
20 points for talking about how great your theory is, but never actually explaining it.
IDIOTS LEFTIST PROJECTION. SO TELL US ABOUT QUANTUM MECHANICS SHIT-FOR-BRAINS.
20 points for each use of the phrase “hidebound reactionary”.
A FINE PHRASE. WHAT A STUPID CUNT HEY?
20 points for each use of the phrase “self-appointed defender of the orthodoxy”.
ANOTHER EXCELLENT PHRASE. THIS FELLOW COULD REALLY NOT BE MORE OF A DUMB CUNT IF WE PAID HIM TO BE.
30 points for suggesting that a famous figure secretly disbelieved in a theory which he or she publicly supported. (E.g., that Feynman was a closet opponent of special relativity, as deduced by reading between the lines in his freshman physics textbooks.)
IF FEYNMAN WASN’T A CLOSET OPPONENT OF SPECIAL RELATIVITY THEN HE WAS A STUPID CUNT. WHAT DO YOU THINK? I’LL TRUST YOUR JUDGEMENT EITHER WAY.
30 points for suggesting that Einstein, in his later years, was groping his way towards the ideas you now advocate.
THATS A POSSIBILITY
30 points for claiming that your theories were developed by an extraterrestrial civilization (without good evidence).
WELL THIS ONE COMES FROM BILL GAEDE. BUT I’M SURE THERE WERE PRECEDENTS. OF COURSE AN EXTRATERRESTRIAL CIVILISATION WOULD HAVE IT RIGHT. THEY ARE NOT TRAVELING THAT MANY LIGHT-YEARS ON THE ADVICE OF OUR PUBLIC SERVANTS.
40 points for comparing those who argue against your ideas to Nazis, stormtroopers, or brownshirts.
THE COMPARISON COULD NOT BE MORE APPROPRIATE. THERE IS ALWAYS A MINDLESS TOTALITARIAN EDGE TO THE SPECIALISTS WHO HOLD TO THESE WRONG THEORIES. “YOU WILL BELIEVE 2+2=5″, IS WHAT THEY APPEAR TO BE SAYING.
40 points for claiming that the “scientific establishment” is engaged in a “conspiracy” to prevent your work from gaining its well-deserved fame, or suchlike.
WELL NOT MY WORK NO. THEY ARE JUST TOTALLY AGAINST ANY GOOD WORK.
40 points for comparing yourself to Galileo, suggesting that a modern-day Inquisition is hard at work on your case, and so on.
WELL IF IT WERE TRUE IT WOULD NOT BE WRONG TO SUGGEST IT.
40 points for claiming that when your theory is finally appreciated, present-day science will be seen for the sham it truly is. (30 more points for fantasizing about show trials in which scientists who mocked your theories will be forced to recant.)
THEY ARE A SHAM NOW. THEY ARE FUCKING MORONS. LOOK AT THE FUCKING MORON WHO PRODUCED THIS TESTIMONY TO PROUD, BELLIGERENT, AND TERMINAL STUPIDITY.
50 points for claiming you have a revolutionary theory but giving no concrete testable predictions.
THATS JUST SILLY. WE ALREADY KNOW THE SPEED OF LIGHT SO ITS NOT UNKNOWN FOR US TO PREDICT. SO YOU PROVE THAT LIGHT IS NOT MADE OF PHOTONS. HOW WILL THAT CHANGE LIGHTS BEHAVIOUR. NAME A LOT OF CHEAP PREDICTIONS WE COULD MAKE? NONE JUMP TO MIND. BECAUSE WE ALREADY KNOW WHAT THE OUTCOME WILL BE FOR ALL THE CHEAP STUFF.
ONCE AGAIN THE STUPID CUNT HAS RUN AGROUND BECAUSE HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT “PREDICT” MEANS.
WHAT A STUPID CUNT THIS FELLOW IS.
