1. ### NASA confuses gravitational redshift with refractional redshift

https://www.nasa.gov/image-article/einsteins-theory-of-relativity-critical-gps-seen-distant-stars/ First, the analogy with a person running up an escalator that is going down and the energy thereof is explained by newtonian physics and has nothing to do with general relativity. The analogy...
2. ### Gravitational lensing is just optical lensing from refraction

Here we go again...these Einstein fanboys simply ignore the fact that light bending is caused by refraction, and that all those massive celestial bodies have atmospheres which bend light because of refraction. The body causing light to bend is the atmosphere/gases which surrounds the massive...
3. ### The absurdity of space-time curvature and geodesics

Einstein's theory of gravity is based on the notion that space-time can be curved (by mass and energy) and uses geodesics to describe its curvature. So what is a geodesic ? A geodesic is the shortest line between two points on a spherical or curved surface (Oxford def.). But space has no...
4. ### Big Bang theory contradicts both Special and General relativity

The standard cosmoillogical model or Big Bang theory is entirely based on the notions of vacuum energy and space expansion- which are interlinked (the latter is caused by the first). But at the same time is claimed to be based on general relativity, and also on special relativity. In reality, it...
5. ### Shapiro time delay is caused by Refraction. Gravitational time dilation does not exist.

Shapiro time delay is caused by refraction. Gravitational time dilation does not exist. And, just like Pound and Rebka, completely ignores refraction. Which makes his whole calculation wrong, because he does not understand basic physics, which require to take into consideration the index of...
6. ### An introduction to Refractional redshift, and how it was confused with gravitational redshift

An introduction to Refractional redshift, and how it was confused with gravitational redshift Marius L. Vasile @ Vasile effect In this article I will prove that refraction causes a redshift, which I cleverly named Refractional redshift, and that this redshift was not so cleverly confused with...
7. ### Where Do Black Holes Lead?

https://www.space.com/where-do-black-holes-lead.html The Conglomerate - Universe Creation Theory The BIG Bang-Bit Bang was a supermassive white hole – inflation/expansion of energy-matter and information 13.8 billion years ago - spawned by a supermassive black hole at the heart of a galaxy in...
