What is Physics?

Authors: Bill Gaede
Comments: 13 Pages.

Physics has evolved from an attempt by ancient researchers to understand the workings of their immediate surroundings to a body of mathematical descriptions and paradoxical physical interpretations. We have today no rational explanation for the simplest of systems and phenomena, for instance, how a magnet physically attracts another from a distance or by what physical means the Earth prevents the Moon from leaving the Solar System. Not one mathematical physicist can explain in a logical manner why a pen falls to the floor rather than to the ceiling. The equations suggest that ‘mass attracts mass’ or that ‘north attracts south’, but these are mere descriptions. They give us no insight as to the physical mechanisms underlying such phenomena. We trace these shortcomings to the nature of the scientific method inherited primarily from 17th Century researchers. We argue, in essence, that the current version of the scientific method is divorced from authentic Science. Here we propose an alternative – henceforth known as the Rational Scientific Method (capitalized to distinguish it from what is currently regarded as such) – and outline the steps necessary to present rational explanations for physical phenomena.

Correcting a Major Mistake in Astronomy and Astrophysics by Observing the Order of Historical Discovery

Authors: Jeffrey Joseph Wolynski
Comments: 1 Page.

It is outlined in this paper the discoveries (or lack thereof due to improper theory development based on false assumptions) that lead to astrophysical theories and mistakes. Major expansions to this timeline are expected, but this does not prevent initial addressing of the mistakes.

Past Close Earth Encounters Create a Synchronistic Chronology of Worldwide Events

Authors: Clayton James Conway
Comments: 3 Pages.

Historic chronologies & king lists and dendrochronologies (tree rings) agree with two major cycles of (T) 6 orbits per 181 years and (V) 32 orbits per 1001 years where enormous changes occurred on the earth into the Common Era. This proves the idea of a dead gravity (no charge) theory to be incorrect. The age of the earth is just less than 100 million years.
