The key point I was trying to make in that post is that Lambda-CDM is unfalsifiable. As david demonstrated with that structure in space, he was unwilling to ever reconsider his hypothesis. He knew that eventually someone would come up with a paper to refute it. I did too. They didn't actually *disprove* the first paper mind you, they simply demonstrated the technique *might* produce erroneous results. It's a draw at best case.

The hemispheric blowout they're having in the Planck data set is another perfect example. David did *not* question his metaphysical dogma, he *added more metaphysics* to save the dogma. The BB dogma cannot be logically falsified in any way. As long as it's acceptable to whip up ad hoc constructs on an as needed basis, there's no way to falsify the core belief, namely that redshift is all related to expansion and acceleration and none of it is related to inelastic scattering or signal broadening in plasma.

Pretty much the whole foundation of BB theory began by *ignoring* Hubble and *pretending* he didn't talk about two solutions to redshift. That specific dogma cannot be falsified because any test that fails is covered up and "explained away' by yet a new ad hoc construct.

Yes, we were supposed to have done away with epicycles centuries ago, but I see that, umm, "science," has made a comeback over the last 100 years.

Still insisting that the Plank data is nothing more than our solar heliopause, with other cosmic rays from other double layers also impacting upon it. The particles from both directions are slowed and then reaccelerated as they hit the double layer surrounding our sun. What mainstream is calling a "magnetic highway" where the particles mill around until they "zoom" in or out as mainstream calls it. Why they just can't use the word "accelerate" instead of "zoom" is another story.

The same story as to why they use the term "hot gas" instead of "plasma". Each conveys a different process and force acting upon it. The same reason they talk about DM and DE as actual things, then say they are simply placeholders when cornered. Placeholders for plasma and electric currents. I just wonder why they can't replace the placeholders with the actual observed and measured phenomenon?

Discovery at LHC leaves less room for new particles | symmetry magazine

FYI, SUSY theory took yet another significant empirical blow this week at CERN. Evidently the SUSY faithful are praying for a miracle in 2015.

The Standard Model predicts that the particle, called B-sub-s, will decay into two muons very rarely, only three times in every billion decays. However, the Standard Model assumes that the only particles involved in the decay are the ones physicists already know. If other, unknown particles exist, they might interfere, either making the decay happen more frequently than predicted or effectively canceling the decay out.
"This is the place to look for new physics," said LHCb physicist Sheldon Stone of Syracuse University. "Small deviations from the predicted rate would firmly establish the presence of new forces or particles."
What scientists found was a decay that followed the Standard Model’s predictions almost to the letter. This spells trouble for several models, including a number of models within the theory of supersymmetry, which predicts that each known particle has an undiscovered partner particle.
But the hunters of new particles have not lost hope; the result leaves room for other models of physics beyond the Standard Model to be correct.
Now of course the findings of actual empirical physics in the LHC data cannot and will not stop astronomers from pointing at high energy photons and positrons in the sky and claiming that SUSY particles did it.

Now they backstabbing illegally to get our comet video taken off.

National Optical Astronomy Observatory Files Copyright Claim Over Images | Libertarian News


Sad state of affairs when a publicly funded organization claims copyright against the very Federal laws governing copyright and federally funded organizations. Can't fight with evidence you go against the rules. Just a delaying tactic, expect the video to be back up in a couple weeks. Attack the news bearer when one has no defense at all against the evidence.

Space slinky: Jet of superheated gas -- 5,000 light-years long -- ejected from supermassive black hole

I thought I'd post this article as another perfect demonstration of the false advertizing that goes on in astronomy today. Apparently astronomers are still clueless about the difference between a gas and a plasma, and they've never heard of a "Birkeland current" in plasma.

What a crock. There is no such thing as a magnetic slinky. That is a *perfect* example of astronomers *refusing* to embrace empirical plasma physics. The whole reason that magnetic flow pattern occurs is due to the flow of current inside the Birkeland current. Astronomers must now make up their own terms in an effort to *avoid* talking about plasma physics.

This is pretty good article that points out the undue influence of string theorists on various branches of science.

Blatantly moving the goal posts....

Universe's baby pictures suggest a bubbly birth - life - 19 September 2013 - New Scientist

The fluctuations look nearly the same in any random sample of the sky, leading astronomers to conclude that all matter was once in contact and then got suddenly shoved apart – just as inflation theory predicts.
But the first maps also showed that the density variations are more marked on one side of the sky than the other. In March 2013, the Planck probe made the highest-resolution CMB map yet, and it too shows this asymmetry.
In other words inflation theory failed its final "prediction" in absolutely spectacular fashion. Penrose also demonstrated that Guth actually made the 'flatness' problem 10 to the 100th power *worse* with inflation theory, and Planck demonstrates that Guth's claim about homogeneity on the largest scales were also false. Nothing that Guth originally claimed about inflation and actually 'predicted' with inflation turned out to be true, not one single thing. Zero, none, nada, zip.

Andrew Liddle of the University of Edinburgh, UK, and colleagues sought an explanation.
Translation: Andrew Liddle could not and would not accept this last revelation of failure as a falsification of inflation theory because he's emotionally and professionally invested in it.

They went back to a theory published in 2008 by Sean Carroll and colleagues at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, which suggested that the small variations are superimposed on a disturbance spanning the observable universe, like small waves carried on a big ocean wave.

"The trouble with that is they just made it up," says Liddle. "There's no reason why that should be."
Irony overload! Guth just "made up" inflation too, and there was no reason why that should have been either! He's now "complaining' about someone 'making up' another supernatural construct on the fly? Oh the irony.

But then he recalled a cosmological model called bubble nucleation, which he had worked on in the 1990s. In this picture, our universe arose from quantum fluctuations in a much bigger cosmos called a metaverse.
Yet another *made up entity* called a 'metaverse'? Wow! Double irony. I guess it's ok though because it's another one of *his* made up entities (or one that he's worked on) rather than someone else's made up entity.

The quantum effects caused a phase transition in the fabric of the metaverse, and our universe popped into being, like an air bubble forming in boiling water.
Verbal word salad.

Weaving the two ideas together, Liddle and colleagues have shown that when inflation happens in a bubble universe, it naturally gives rise to large disturbances in space-time that could account for the lopsided CMB (Physical Review Letters, doi.org/ns2).
Translation: By "making up" a "new" supernatural construct called a metaverse and slapping it onto *another* made up supernatural construct, he can *move the goalposts* again, and avoid falsifying the original "made up' claim.

Major facepalm!

Sorry, Michael, the Lambda-CDM model is easily falsifiable.
It can be falsified by one simple observation - a blue-shifted galaxy at a large distance from us (outside the local group where gravity dominates).

There are some problems with the Lambda-CDM model but the overall consistency of its match with the universe is why it is considered the best model for the universe.
