Euclide's Mistakes2018-06-21The fifth postulate In Euclid's geometry, regarding a plane, he uses the concepts point and straight line. He postulates, that a point and a straight line together can define a unique straight line, parallel to the given line and passing through the given point. However, he never provided |

The Confusion in Physics2018-06-11Einstein's relativity Einstein's relativity is not good physics, but rather a very bad philosophy. Einstein's works demonstrate high creativity, but are combined with little self critique. The many errors have the ironic effect of splitting up the opposition and thereby making it difficult |

No Preferred Frame2016-11-26Aether Maxwell's equations are well known, but many scientists seems to have forgotten that these equations describe an aether. Maxwell translated the works of Faraday into mathematical form, and found thereby a value c on the speed of light. However, his theory is not complete, s |

Gravitational Attraction is Dead2016-04-14Blog 20160217 Numerous readers have requested that I comment on all the commotion concerning the recent discovery of gravitational waves via the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO). I will assume that this is the real thing and not just another false alarm. First, let me |

Euclid Was Wrong2015-08-12An earlier contribution from this author was called The Definition of Parallelism. The article stated that the definition of parallelism in Euclidean geometry is wrong. The motivat |

The Definition of Parallelism2015-07-20The geometry inside a plane includes straight lies of infinite lengths falling inside a plane. It is regarded as a fact that two points inside a plane can define a unique straight line. By intuition we assume that one point and one line also can |
