Why Gravitational Waves Are Nonsense

New: Read Why LIGO Is a Scam for a different take on the subject.

LIGO

As most of you have heard, tomorrow is the day of the big announcement from LIGO regarding their gravitational wave detection experiment. As my readers have come to expect, I always have a rebellious point of view in matters concerning physics, artificial intelligence and computer science. Once again, I aim to please. I detest relativistic physics about as much as I detest mainstream AI. Einsteinian physics has retarded progress in our understanding of the universe by at least a century, in my opinion. I have written about this on many occasions in the past (see the links at the end of this article). Below I explain in simple terms why gravitational waves are crap and why any announcement from anybody that such waves have been detected is either fraudulent or another pathetic error.

The Circus Has Not Left Town Yet

There are many reasons that gravitational waves are nonsense but what follows is my favorite. It is very simple and it won't take long. As usual, it has to do with infinite regress. In my research, I have found that nearly everything that is wrong with both classical and quantum physics is almost invariably due to infinite regress. So here goes.

Gravity affects everything that exists equally regardless of mass and this includes massless particles. Both Newton and Galileo understood this centuries ago, even though relativists claim that they are the ones who figured it out. Go figure.

The problem is that this undeniable principle means that gravity also affects gravitational waves. Since these waves affect themselves, they either cancel themselves out or amplify themselves recursively. The same objection applies to so-called curved space and to hypothetical intermediary particles such as gravitons. In other words, if it exists, regardless of its mass, gravity affects it. The infinite self-referential regress is too painful to even contemplate.

Conclusion

Paul Feyerabend was right when he wrote in Against Method, "the most stupid procedures and the most laughable result in their domain are surrounded with an aura of excellence. It is time to cut them down to size and to give them a lower position in society." Einsteinian physics is indeed laughable. To borrow the words of Wolfgang Pauli, it is not even wrong.

All relativists are out to lunch. Tomorrow, I'll be watching the whole circus unfold with a bag of Cheetos in one hand, a beer in the other and a smirk on my face.
