Spacetime and Making Black Holes in your Kitchen Sink

Dr. Borchardt:

TSW dismisses the notion of "curved" spacetime.
I was relieved, since prior to reading that, I felt pretty stupid not understanding it.
But, now there is a report from the Discovery Channel that proclaims scientists have
fabricated an electromagnetic black hole in the laboratory.
It goes on to say that this model "mimics the curvature of space-time, creating a fabricated event horizon that swallows electromagnetic radiation at microwave wavelengths."

Needless to say, if I was confused before, I'm twice as confused now.

What is really going on here?

Thanks.

Frederic



Frederic:

Numerous outrageous claims are made every week in support of the Big Bang Theory. That is one of the reasons it is so hard to dislodge. All “ordinary science” is interpreted from the theoretical point of view of the dominant paradigm. Whether it is “multiverses,” “parallel universes,” 4 or 13-dimensions, it is all part of the same foolish speculation based on idealism rather than realism. The media, especially the Discovery Channel, seem to eat this kind of stuff for lunch.

First of all, “spacetime” does not exist. “Space” exists and “time” occurs. Spacetime is a matter-motion term, which, like momentum, force, and energy, combines terms for matter and terms for motion in mathematical idealization. Spacetime, then, is an idea, conception, or calculation and therefore is not part of the real world. The idea that pure empty space actually could be “curved” is one of Einstein’s most deadly sins. The 4th dimension used in the spacetime concept is a necessary part of the BBT. Otherwise, our location at the center of the expansion hypothesized by the BBT would have proven to be impossibly fortuitous to many.

What is termed a “black hole” appears to be typical of the nuclei of galaxies. That one could achieve the necessary temperatures and pressures in the laboratory to produce a micro-black hole appears highly suspect to me. The absorption of radiation is nothing new—that is what every plant does in sustaining its life. The idea that a black hole only absorbs and never emits the motion called radiation has been recanted by Hawking himself.

You might want to review the blog I wrote on 9/4/09 concerning the discovery of a 12.8 billion-year old galactic black hole that clearly contradicts the BBT. Our own galaxy is at least 10 billion years old, and yet, this one supposedly formed 0.9 billion years after the Big Bang supposedly occurred 13.7 billion years ago. The reporter never questioned this (what? a reporter with a Ph.D.?). The media are largely uncritical of the interpretations of “learned men of science” as long as they follow the conventional view. The interpretations can be outright ridiculous, but they won’t be questioned if they have the appropriate buzz words and adhere to the principles of the paradigm. Get ready for a lot more fun and games before we finally put the BBT to bed.

Thanks so much. I think that may be because of the input from readers like you. Many of the questions and comments have been really perceptive and have encouraged me to come up with new ways of explaing stuff.
