There are many great stories to tell about critical thinkers: from their fights with Big Science, to their thoughts on the “Big Picture”, to their most important “Eureka” moments.

Fighting Big Science

Moving science forward almost always comes from the outside and many critical thinkers have been repressed, humiliated, and even expelled for their work.

With all the triumphs that Big Physics trumpets from their cathedral of the Large Hadron Collider, it is noteworthy news when one of their high priests or in this case priestesses leaves abdicates their lofty position and then goes onto reveal why the left. And it isn't a positive story.

You will be shocked to find out that the majority of physicists do not in fact support the musings of the theoretical physicists who play with very large and expensive equipment. >>>become more woke...

It all started when a brilliant young Argentinian student asked his college physics professor a simple question: why a kinetic energy equation was being applied to radioactivity for making calculations for energy loss? (see my article on what young Carezani found). Radioactive elements give off ener... >>>become more woke...

Eureka Moments

Most all critical thinkers in science have had their “eureka” moments. That is where a critical thinker became science work in a big way. And you won’t find any of these stories anywhere on the internet.

Now the fact is this: The Sagnac effect is fatal to SRT as presently practiced. Draper people already knew that, and I soon knew it too. And that is how I became a Dissident Physicist. >>>become more woke...

While I was working there, I sometimes had to go down to the basement and peel potatoes alone, in a dark, cold, and wet room. At first, I didn’t like this dungeon-like place, especially when it was icy cold and snowing outside. But I found that because my task was easy, and there was no one around to bother me, I could spend lots of time thinking about physics, while peeling those potatoes. At the time, I was reading a book about Einstein’s Relativity Theory. >>>become more woke...

Big Picture

Critical thinkers often see the “big picture” of science way before the mainstream. These give you a very different and exciting perspective from some of the most science work people on the planet.

It wasn't until just days ago that I finally came to the realization as to why Einstein became so famous. After almost three decades studying arguments against relativity including spending over 8 years making the documentary "Einstein Wrong", I finally pinpointed exactly why the public put Einstein onto a pedestal. >>>become more woke...

So you consider yourself to have your eyes wide open to politics, the environment, to income inequality and the like. But now is the time you need to become science woke. >>>become more woke...

There are dozens of candidates for new models for the universe today. Find out why and how we got to today's Model Revolution. Mainstream science has become unbelievable and religious like with all attempts to criticize it met with immediate rejection. There are lots of new theories and models from critical thinkers outside the mainstream that greatly improve upon current theory. >>>become more woke...

According to Big Science, you are too dumb to understand the complicated universe. But is the universe complicated, or our theories? >>>become more woke...

Universities, science magazines, and science evangelists never talk about problems with the big bang, relativity, particle physics, quantum mechanics and the like. To them, criticisms exist because those who criticize mainstream science simply don't understand the complexities of modern science.

Ok, we've all been there. You are at a party, and the local intellectual is spouting off the latest from the world of physics or cosmology, trying to show they are "up-to-date" on all the latest from Big Science and you aren't. Their goal isn't to engage in stimulating conversation or an interesting debate. Their goal is to make themselves appear to be smarter than everyone around them. Sad fact: ... >>>become more woke...

Try this: go to your local university physics professor and tell them you have an experiment to show Einstein wrong and you want to perform it for a masters or PHD thesis. Or, tell them you want to write your thesis on how the Big Bang is wrong. What do you think >>>become more woke...

It's a pretty bold statement: the John Chappell Natural Philosophy Soceity is the best scientific society on the planet. Ok, it doesn't have a large membership, it's not the most organized, and it certainly has little or no name recognition.

Mainstream media calls upon these science evangelists to help explain difficult concepts from Big Science. The question is: do they help or hinder scientific progress? >>>become more woke...
