• Stephen Hawking Fraudster. How about Other Einsteinians?

    "A large part of Hawking’s celebrity and income derived from his work as a popular author. His 1988 popular book, A Brief History of Time, was a huge success. [...] Many other books followed, and if you go to any bookstore with a science section, you’
    re likely to find quite a few of them for sale. The problem is that, on the whole, they’re not any good, and they’re not written by Hawking. [...] I first noticed this when I ran across a copy of God Created the Integers, a thick anthology of writing
    on mathematics, supposedly edited by and with commentary by Hawking. At least he’s listed as the sole author. Given the topic and the volume of material, it seemed highly implausible to me that Hawking was actually the author. For a review of the book,
    see here. Seife explains in detail that much of it is essentially plagiarized from other sources, and that to this day, it seems to be unknown who wrote the material (just that it clearly wasn’t Hawking)." https://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/wordpress/?

    Kip Thorne declares that Newton's theory predicted no gravitational deflection of starlight:

    Kip Thorne: "A second crucial proof of the breakdown in Newtonian gravity was the relativistic bending of light. Einstein's theory predicted that starlight passing near the limb of the sun should be deflected by 1.75 seconds of arc, whereas NEWTON'S LAW
    PREDICTED NO DEFLECTION. Observations during the 1919 eclipse of the sun in Brazil, carried out by Sir Arthur Eddington and his British colleagues, brilliantly confirmed Einstein's prediction to an accuracy of about 20 percent. This dealt the final death
    blow to Newton's law and to most other relativistic theories of gravity." http://commons.erau.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=3169&context=space-congress-proceedings

    Lying so blatantly is only safe if science is dead (criticism is pointless) and an all-powerful ideology protects (and even generously rewards) the liar.

    Another blatant lie: Kip Thorne: "If you move toward the [light] source, you see the wavelength shortened but you don't see the speed changed" https://youtu.be/mvdlN4H4T54?t=296

    Here is an observer moving toward the light source:


    Does the wavelength (distance between light pulses) shorten in front of him? Obviously not. The frequency and the speed of the pulses increase proportionally for the moving observer, in violation of Einstein's relativity.

    LIGO fakers: "The fact that the speed of gravitational waves is equal to the speed of electromagnetic waves is simply because they both travel at the speed of information." https://discovermagazine.com/the-sciences/why-does-gravity-travel-at-the-speed-of-

    Is "speed of information" defined in physics? Theoretical physicists: "Who cares?"
