If the obvious doesn't do it...

    When attacking the catechism of a religion, it is best to go directly to what is patently irrational. If the
    extreme case does not strike a chord with the fanatic, you might as well move on. Your listener is stuck
    at celebrity. He gawks at whatever his pastor tells him because it is much easier for him to accept the
    most idiotic explanation from an expert than to suspect the rationality of all Nobel Prize winners since
    1900. He has been thoroughly brainwashed to trust authority and no amount of reasoning will make him
    question, let alone abandon, what he grew up with. How could so many of the brightest people on the
    planet have been so misled? We have technology. We have GPS. We send rockets to the Moon. Surely
    we must have gotten something right if we made such progress in so many fields.

    The answer is that Science has nothing to do with Technology. Technology is about inventing gadgets
    whereas Science is about explaining a phenomenon rationally. Here we are interested in whether
    General Relativity proposes rational explanations for the workings of the Universe, not whether it
    produced products and services or whether the Math is right.

    So? What is the main proposal of General Relativity? What is this famous theory about? What does it
    purport to explain?



    Big Bang Baloney

    One of the seminal discoveries relativity boasts about is Big Bang, a cosmic theory of the origin of the
    Universe. Relativists believe that the Universe had a beginning some 13.7 billion years ago in a self-
    generated  explosion. They claim that experiments and observations have proven to them that the
    Universe is still expanding and that it will continue to do so for billions of years. The astronomers who
    subscribe to Einstein's theories allege that they have verified that the entire cosmos -- space included --
    is blowing up before their very eyes. The stars and galaxies are running away from us as if we were
    at the center of the Universe. They now rewind this cosmic tape and conclude that stars and galaxies
    were closer together in the past. When they rewind the tape all the way to the start, they end up with
    a single ball -- actually, more like a dot -- they call the Big Bang, the moment / place when time and
    where space began. This is their logic. This is the reasoning relativists followed to come up with the
    Big Bang. In essence, Big Bang is Creation... but without God. That's why fundamentalist pastors like
    William Lane Craig absolutely love relativity and constantly smirk at the mathemagicians: "We told
    you so!"

    The modest question a rational person wants answered by a relativist is, "What encapsulates and
    contains the Universe?" What did the initial Big Bang Ball push up against in its expansion? What is
    spacetime pushing up against in its present expansion?

    Relativists usually give you one of two answers, actually, excuses. The first one is that these are unscientific
    questions. They are illegal questions. The inquiry is beyond the purview of science because researchers have
    no way of verifying through an experiment what could possibly lie outside the boundary of the Universe. The
    other popular reply is that it is an irrational question. It is like asking, "What's north of the North Pole?"

    Well, this second one is easy to address. North of the North Pole is what we call space. In fact, space is
    south of the South Pole, east of the East Pole, and west of the West Pole. Space surrounds the entire
    Earth and every bit of matter in the Universe. We can't say the same thing about spacetime, Big Bang,
    the Universe, or whatever relativists want to call it because spacetime, Big Bang and the Universe all
    INCLUDE space. Therefore, the mathematician can't say that space surrounds space.

    Now we can address their first defense. In Science, we don't prove what is outside of the Universe with an
    experiment. This is strictly a qualitative, conceptual issue, and here we have the contradiction right there in
    front of us, staring at us in the face. There is no need to invoke Math or claim ignorance. Relativists claim that
    there are many universes like ours in each of which you live simultaneoulsy, and that these parallel universes
    are all interconnected by wormholes. WHAT separates these universes from one another? What physical
    object must the wormhole perforate to get from one universe to the other? Is the wormhole a standalone
    physical object or is it a hole through some kind of medium like for instance a rabbit hole?

    Again, the mathematician cannot continue to say that the wormhole is a tunnel through space because each
    universe already includes space within it. Space is the skin of each ball. If all these alleged universes share
    the same space, we are back to our standard Single Universe and the multiverse proposal dies a sudden
    death.
UCLA mathemagician Ned Wright illustrates General Relativity's Expanding Universe Theory
with two
balloons. The balloon itself represents space. The tiny lines and marks represent
the galaxies. As the balloon (space) expands, it pushes the galaxies apart.
The Universe according to General Relativity

Relativists claim that there was an explosion almost 14 billion years ago that brought space,
time and matter into existence. The question is what was outside of this initial ball. What
gave contour to spacetime? What did Big Bang push up against in its expansion?
In other words, what's the black stuff that surrounds the horizontal drinking glass (below)
relativists illustrate if the glass contains and includes time, matter AND space?
The mathemagicians can't tell you what lies outside of spacetime, but then they also
tell you with certainty that there are parallel universes and that they will travel to one
through a wormhole some day.

    A mathemagician may reply that he doesn't know or can't even imagine what surrounds spacetime or what
    came before the Big Bang. He doesn't like these kinds of questions because he will never be able to rationalize
    an answer. He would rather talk about equations and about what he 'proved' to his peers through experiments.
    What then should we do next?

    Mathemagician Neil de Grasse Tyson gives us the answer. He says that all the fools of Mathemagical 'physics'
    -- his colleagues -- should simply shut their big fat mouths rather than flaunt their ignorance. We agree.



    Solution to the dilemma

    The question of the origin of the Universe actually has a very down-to-earth solution. It is a no-brainer that
    summarily destroys the religion of General Relativity. We need no Math to resolve the issue before us. It is
    strictly  a conceptual matter. We begin by defining the two strategic terms that we will need to make our
    simple case: object and space.

    ..........object: that which has shape (thing, something, anything, body, substance, entity, medium)

    ..........space: that which does not have shape (syn: nothing, vacuum, void, emptiness, zero)

    Now that we have defined these strategic words, we can use them consistently (i.e., scientifically) to rationalize
    our argument. Object and space are antonyms. If a thing is that which has shape, nothing is that which doesn't.

    We cannot imagine let alone explain how nothing can spontaneously become something. How can the vacuum
    acquire length, width an height surreptitiously? This would indeed require magic, and even in that case we
    would  not be able to conceptualize how nothing became something IN ZERO TIME! The mathemagicians are
    saying that there was absolutely nothing in one frame of the Universal Film and then something (length, width
    and height) in  the next one.

    Space is a synonym of nothing. This means that it is not something as alleged by Relativity. Space is not a
    physical object with boundaries and surface. Space has no shape, perimeter, surface, borders, or boundaries.
    It is nothing BY DEFINITION. The skeptic has the burden of defining the word 'space' in the alternative. Not
    even almighty God can escape space because He would have literally nothing to cross. Space is the largest
    prison never built!

    Therefore, matter could not have been created (as traditional religions hold) nor did it create itself (as General
    Relativity and Quantum Mechanics hold). Atoms have always been there. If we rewind the Universal Tape we
    would find that yesterday there were atoms, the day before yesterday there were atoms, and the day before
    that there were also atoms. We simply cannot imagine or rationally explain how nothing spontaneously morphs
    into something. There was no beginning and there will be no end. Matter is eternal in both directions of time.
    The Universe is the only imaginable perpetual system because it is the only conceivable closed system.
How do we conceptualize a rabbit
appearing spontaneously in zero
time? By what physical mechanism
does nothing suddenly acquire
length, width and height without
any motion? Please explain the
process step by step.
The relativistic multiverse
The Religion of General Relativity

A wormhole is a tube of space that connects
two spaces.
Black Hole
Is a wormhole like a rabbit hole:
a cavity through the earth?
 >>

Or is a wormhole a standalone
object like a test tube which itself is
enveloped by space or whatever?

V
If all universes share a single space,
there is only one universe.
Otherwise, relativists have to identify
the medium the wormhole traverses.
What's the black stuff that surrounds
each universe in the picture at right?
Therefore, the question remains:

What entity or thing separates one universe
from the other? You can't say "space" because
space is already contained within each universe.

This is not an issue we prove with an experiment
or through observation. This is strictly a conceptual
issue. We can't verify the relativistic assertion with
an experiment or observation until we understand
what it is that we're looking for!
The Big Question of General Relativity
The problem is that Einstein's spacetime ball
includes time, matter, light and SPACE! In his
proposal space is the rubbery skin of the balloon.

The question then is: What's the black stuff on
the outside of the ball? What gives shape to
spacetime? What is the Universe pushing up
against in its expansion?
Here we have two parallel universes. If each
of the two contains matter, time, energy and,
especially, SPACE, what is the black stuff
that separates one from the other and gives
shape to each? If you reply "SPACE", then
we're back to a single universe.
Below, we have the same two universes
interconnected by a wormhole. A hole is the
absence of matter in a medium. If SPACE
is nothing, we have a hole through nothing.
The proposal of General Relativity is a
surrealistic concoction: nothing through
nothing! The mathemagicians have to tell
you

        
WHAT is space?

Then, they have to draw a picture of

                 
 'it'.

The only way to present an object in Physics
is by pointing to it.
