String Theorists & Death Threats Directored Towards Critics!
Snarky String Theorists Silently Supported by Greene, Randall, Kaku, Davies
Yes--I write under a pseudonym because String Theorists' preferred method of debate is ad hominemn attacks and threats.
Ed Witten, Lisa Randall, and Brian Greene sanctify and quietly support legions of useful idiots who rant and rave about String Theory's righteousness and forthcoming success, if we only give it thirty more years and a bilion more dollars. Neither Ed, nor Lisa, nor Brian has ever spoken out against the snarky/mean-spirited behavior of Lubos et al. Ye shall know them by thier fruits.
Page 227 of woit's NOT EVEN WRONG describes some silly attacks on Woit by string theorists:
'... some superstring theorists have chosen to attack me personally [via the Not Even Wrong weblog comments section] ... One of the more excitable of such superstring theorists, a Harvard faculty member, [commented] that those who criticised the funding of superstring theory were terrorists who deserved to be eliminated by the United States military.'
Such behavior seems sanctified by Brian Greene and Michio Kaku and Lisa Randall, who know about it, but have never done anything about it. Never once have any of them criticized Lubos/Susskind for their relentless ad hominem attacks--Lubos translated Greene's The Elegant Universe, and is very useful in perpetuating String Theology via ad hominem attacks, now that it has transcended the limitations of science, logic, and reason and become a political movement. Greene received over $3,000,000 in funding to film his snarky PBS mini-series, and Lubos was hired to shore up support for the government-growing propaganda.
I have a Ph.D. in physics and studied at an Ivy League school with a very prominent physics department.
Read this at Peter Woit's blog:
Smolin sat down. Duff stood up. It got nasty.
The trouble with physics, Duff began, is with people like Smolin...
Duff is described as "string theorist and man for whom, one imagines, the words 'self' and `doubt' do not often rub shoulders", and seemed to think it was a good idea to answer criticisms of string theory with vociferous ad hominem attacks. Lubos Motl and Clifford Johnson both found Duff's behavior an excellent example for all string theorists, inspiring Clifford to write part VII of his extended attack on me, Smolin and our two books. He admitted somewhere around part V or VI that he actually hadn't looked at the books and had no intention of doing so, and he's pretty steadfast in that attitude.
There are hundreds of millions of NSF dollars at stake, and massive egoes that rely on string theory hype to get by.
And so it is that they will do anything to destroy Moving Dimenions Theory, as Paul Davies recycles some ridiculous thirty-year-old article about Time Travel in Scientific American, Brian Greene participates in another snarky-snarky debate with Lenny Susskind, and they recreate science to suit their souls--becuase String Theory has no solution and makes no sense, and because it is the ultimate science, we're at the end of the road here--we can all go home except for string theorists, who need millions more in tax dollars for more tv shows and coffe table books snarking science via postmodern performance art.
String Theory's equation is NO NEW IDEAS = CONTINUED FUNDING AND FREE RIDES FOR NON_THEORIES AND PSEUDO SICENCE
Contrast the group-think billion-dollar Goliath that is String Theory with the simple common-sense of Moving Dimensions Theory: The fourth dimension is expanding relative to the three spatial
dimensions. Moving Dimensions Theory accounts for the aetherless aether.
This simple postulate offers a physical model underlying and unifiying:
1) length contraction
2) time dilation
3) the equivalence of mass and energy
4) the constant velocity of light
5) the independence of the speed of light from the velocity of the source
1) action at a distance
2) wave-particle duality
3) interference phenomena
4) EPR paradox
1) Time's arrow
STRING THEORY'S MANY DIMENSIONS / KALUZA/KLEIN THEORY
1) a fourth expanding dimension can be interepreted as many dimensions, each time it expands
THE UNITY OF THE DUALITIES
1) wave/particle duality
2) time/space duality
3) energy/mass duality
4) E/B duality
1) Gravitational redshift
2) Gravity waves
3) Gravitation attraction
THE SPACE-TIME BACKGROUND
1) quantum foam
2) the smearing of space and time at small distances
3) Hawking's imaginary time
1) MDT explains away Godel's Block Universe
2) MDT unfreezes time
3) Resolves Zeno's Paradox
ONE GETS ALL OF THIS FROM A SIMPLE POSTULATE:
The fourth dimension is expanding relative to the three spatial
dimensions in a sphereically symmetric manner, in units of the Planck length, at the rate of c.
This means that every point in three dimnesional space is always expanding into a fourth dimensional sphere with a radius of the plank length. A photon is matter caught on the surface of this quantized expansion, and thus energy is quantized. The expansion of the fourth dimension occurs at the rate of c, and thus the velocity of all photons is c.
Check out the t-shirt with a simple proof of MDT:
"The only way to stay stationary in the fourth dimension is to move at the speed of light through the three spatial dimensions. Ergo the fourth dimension is expanding at the rate of c relative to the three spatial dimenions."
How sad it is that when truth stares modern physicists in the face, they must close their eyes so as to get a postdoc or raise more funds for String Theory.
Moving Dimensions Theory is in complete agreement with all
experimental tests and phenomena associated with special and general relativity. MDT is in complete agreement with all physical phenomena as predicted by quantum mechanics and demonstrated in extensive experiments. The genius and novelty of MDT is that it presents a common physical model which shows that phenomena from both relativity and quantum mechanics derive from the same fundamental physical reality.
Nowhere does String Theory nor Loop Quantum Gravity account for quantum entanglement nor relativistic time dilation. MDT shows these derive from the same underlying physical reality. Nowhere does ST nor LQG account for wave-particle duality nor relativistic length contraction. MDT shows these derive from the same underlying physical reality. Nowhere does ST nor LQG account for the constant speed of light, nor the independence of the speed of light on the velocity of the source, nor entropy, nor time's arrow. MDT shows these derive from the same underlying physical reality. Nowhere does String Theory nor
Loop Quantum Gravity resolve the paradox of Godel's Block Universe which troubled Eisntein. MDT resolves this paradox.
Simply put, MDT replaces the contemporary none-theories with a physical theory, complete with a simple postulate that unifies
formerly disparate phenomena within a simple context.
