    I was bored this afternoon, so just for the fun of it I browsed through some of the sites listed here :

    Crank Dot Net | physics

    Got some good laughs out of it, and in terms of crankyness this one has to take the biscuit ( Physics Myths and physics facts ) :

    "The concept of a 'curved space', which is essential for present cosmological models, is logically flawed because space can only be defined by the distance between two objects, which is however by definition always given by a straight line. Mathematicians frequently try to illustrate the properties of 'curved space' through the example of a spherical (or otherwise curved) surface and the associated geometrical relationships. However, a surface is only a mathematical abstraction within the actual (3-dimensional) space and one can in fact connect any two points on the surface of a physical object through a straight line by drilling through it."

    Or this one, from the same site :

    "Einstein claims that the alleged space-time curvature around massive objects will affect the path of light rays as well. This is an unallowed generalization as the concept was derived to describe the gravitational interaction, but electromagnetic waves are immaterial and massless physical objects. Effects that apparently confirm this prediction of General Relativity could well be explained by other mechanisms (see for instanceGravitational Lensing)."

    Documented proof that 4 million years of evolution isn't enough.
    Its the way nature is!
    If you dont like it, go somewhere else....
    To another universe, where the rules are simpler
    Philosophically more pleasing, more psychologically easy
    Prof Richard Feynman (1979) .....

    Das ist nicht nur nicht richtig, es ist nicht einmal falsch!"

    I have been a prisoner of the Internet for a decade. If I broke free, I wouldn't know what to do with my time.
