Cosmology Intelligent Design

A Nobelist explains: I invented the correct universe

In fairness, Jim Peebles is telling New Scientist:

Our cosmology assumes that most matter comes in a “dark” form that hasn’t yet been detected. It relies on Albert Einstein’s cosmological constant, a seemingly arbitrary addition, to explain why the universe’s expansion is apparently speeding up. Even if you are prepared to overlook these difficulties, there is the unsolved question of what the universe was doing before it was expanding.

… I introduced the mystery elements of dark matter and dark energy into our standard cosmology. So is the model I helped construct right; is our cosmology a true reflection of reality? In what follows, I will strongly argue yes – but only as far as that goes.

Jim Peebles, “Why the universe I invented is right – but still not the final answer” at New Scientist (paywall)

Throw in a multiverse and pop science will believe. Hey. We can’t help that.

    Reminds me of Trump. “I am very God! I am very perfect! All you very weak losers with very small ‘hands’ must bow before my very radiant magnificence!”

    Peebles is a gifted theoretical physicist. He is also an agnostic that does not berate religion. To compare him to a cretin like Trump is offensive.

    Look again, using a SPIRAL instead of an SCM-LCDM lens
    Where we find:
    No ongoing cosmic expansion.
    The entire universe approximates the visible universe.
    99% of matter is the ‘5%’ normal matter.
    So the ‘visible’ normal matter is near 100% of the entire physical universe.
    Start study and fairly consider at: SPIRAL vs SCM info-graphic:

    The lying about Donald Trump is now completely out of control – June 2, 2020

    My only gripe with the headline is that the lying has been out of control since before he took to oath of office.

    Well, he should stop doing it, then.

    Seversky is a member of either the church or synagogue of Satan. I suspect the latter.

    F/N: FYI, an AP “fact check” countering an image that has been widely shared:

    >>THE FACTS: An image shared thousands of times online that appears to show all the lights out in and around the White House was taken before Trump even assumed office.

    Associated Press photographs taken Sunday night show the front of the White House illuminated by exterior lights and the portico lantern turned on, but the mansion’s interior is dark.>>

    Why that foreboding dark interior? For one, on security, ensuring no targets within are conveniently lighted for possible lurking snipers who could easily be up to 1,000 m away.
