Sheldon, our physics color commentator, writes to say, “I’ve mentioned before that Subir Sarkar at Oxford has questioned the existence of “dark energy” and by implication, the award of the 2011 Nobel prize. Sabine Hossenfelder’s blog links to a 7 minute summary of the Nobel prize and Sarkar’s work:
But even more compelling is her 45 minute interview with Sarkar here:
In the 45 minute interview, note (29:30) how cosmologists assume dark energy in order to prove dark energy. It is a logic popularized by Darwinists but in my experience, it is also endemic in all fields of physics. For some reason, in all the effusive praise for the scientific method by both educators and scientists alike, no one ever mentions the need for elementary logic.
