Hollow Earth wormhole to Mars

4 posts in this topic

Peter Fotis Kapnistos: Space-time is a mathematical coordinate system (3 dimensions of space and 1 of time) in which physical events are located in a single continuum. According to Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, gravitation is the "curvature" of space-time. In other words, because an object’s mass makes the curve of space-time bend like a basin in its region, its gravitational force is amplified and attracts other nearby masses.

Isn't it great how science and utter stupidity can be mixed so well together?

Oh, it is indeed. Another great example of how Mr. Kapnistos can brilliantly bungle up even rather basic physics. I shall admit that I started a post to critique his essay, but I was kinda like, why?

Argh,

Bugger it - I just can't help it. This column is just too ridiculous not to critique a bit. This gem, for instance:

In the early stages of our solar system's formation, fragments of matter were fiercely flung apart, but remained in "quantum entanglement" or superposition. Quantum entanglement is a phenomenon that connects two particles in such a way that changes to one of the particles are instantaneously reflected in the other, although they may seem physically separated by several light years. Einstein described superposition as "spooky action at a distance."<br style="font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; background-color: rgb(233, 233, 233); "><br style="font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; background-color: rgb(233, 233, 233); ">Some clusters of ejected stellar mass eventually merged into planets and their moons. But numerous particles continued in quantum entanglement, because they shared the identical superposition, connected by Einstein-Rosen bridges (or stretched-out space-time wormholes). Since this bond took place at the beginning stages, matter in entanglement is more likely to be found in the interior or close to the core of a planet.

Quantum entanglement is a quantum-mechanical derived effect. Einstein-Rosen bridges are wormholes and from the Theory of General Relativity. There are no wormholes in quantum mechanics and so far QM and GR have been irreconcilable. The link between the two in the present column is, at best, ignorant.

Then there is this part:

The Hollow Earth hypothesis, first put forward in 1692 by the English astronomer Edmund Halley, proposes that the planet Earth is either completely hollow or encloses an extensive interior space. The hollow Earth supposedly contains a small interior sun. There are said to be entrances at the north and south poles. During World War II Hitler sent an expedition to the Baltic Island of Rugen to search for proof of a hollow Earth.<br style="font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; background-color: rgb(233, 233, 233); "><br style="font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; background-color: rgb(233, 233, 233); ">Today, that theory has be extended to suggest that the hollow space that connects the north and south poles is really the throat of a space-time wormhole, and the interior sun is actually a rotating black hole, which is prevented by an event horizon from crunching the Earth.

This is, of course, utterly ridiculous. We know this cannot be. We have a very good idea of the mass of the Earth, we have very good seismic soundings. E.g., when the Soviet Union set off the Tsar Bomba it made the Earth "ring". We'd know if the Earth was hollow. And suggesting that an interior black hole exists in the Earth's core is simply stupid on so many levels. And an event horizon does not prevent anything to be crushed.

It is physics 101, yet Mr. Kapnistos manages to bungle it up completely, displaying a rather astonishing lack of knowledge in the area in which he write. Most people would recognize that they do not possess the knowledge to speak of matters in given areas and thus avoid to - Mr. Kapnistos apparently completely lacks this ability. And of course supported by either unverifiable or unnamed witnesses.

Good grief, the ignorance. Sometimes editorial scrutiny is a good thing.

Cheers,

Badeskov
