The paper and video is bogus and not close to consistent with GR. In fact, if "Physics 101" was all that's required (video) then GR is wrong. I say that because GR does not predict Allen's simple result. To think that a simple Newtonian integral over (all) time applies to a proven space-time environment insults my intelligence, and that's hard to do!

Although GR is likely not complete, it's held up to every test so far, and is still standing while competitors are buckling... There's more to say to debunk this "physics essay", but it's probably not worth anybody's time.

The new inquisition is the "scientific" establishment and Their Big Bang theory is nothing more than religion disguised as science. It was proposed by a catholic priest named Georges Lemaitre and he based this theory off of his interpretation of the Biblical creation myth. But the priesthood of the Bang has no actual evidence to support their theory. There's no reason to think that the universe ever had a beginning, it is infinite and has always existed. Matter can not be created or destroyed

Sorry, no video. We have now found Blazars, maybe there are a few of these lurking out there too :?:
