The hype for the latest "great scientific achievement" follows other recent "great scientific achievements" such as the detection of "gravity waves" and the confirmation of the Higgs Boson known as the "god particle". These announcements are usually publicized weeks in advance in order to create maximum hype and peek interest in what quickly becomes irrelevant to society as a whole. awaken

The BBC Horizon program, Supermassive Black Holes, is an example of how science documentaries have turned science into science fiction, by combining a little science fact with fictional writing to produce speculative science fiction. Unfortunately, much of modern mainstream science is infected with this type of speculative fiction. We can lay the blame for this on the modern scientific method, whi... awaken

Now to the question at hand: Does the black hole in M87 falsify the Big Bang Theory? According to the Big Bang Theory, the universe exploded out of nothing 13.8 billion years ago. Since then, matter has been accumulating in the form of about 2 trillion galaxies, with the youngest being spiralic and oldest being elliptical. awaken

This is how astronomers and cosmologists do science: fraud by means of mass-media induced mass-hysteria. It beggars belief. Think about it: according to the astronomers and cosmologists the finite mass of their black hole is concentrated in a 'physical singularity' of zero volume, infinite density, and infinite gravity. But no finite mass has zero volume, infinite density, and infinite gravity, anywhere! awaken

The first Eureka moment for me was in 1985 when Scientific American published, for the first time, the algorithm for the Mandelbrot Set. It was in the Computer Recreations section of the magazine, written by Kee Dewdney at the time.  awaken

Australian Stephen Crothers declared war on black holes a while back. Since then, he has been on the crusade to set things straight about these mysterious objects in the heavens. awaken

In about March 2003 I formally commenced part-time candidature for the PhD in the School of Physics at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, Australia, under the supervision of Professor John K. Webb. The support supervisor was Professor Michael Ashley. I was initially engaged in the development of a computer simulation program in relation to Extra-Solar Planets.
