Here is a live feed of articles from the John Chappell Natural Philosophy Society (formally the NPA). It continues to be the “premier” organization of critical thinkers in the world with scientists from all over the world.

  • Einstein Was Wrong - Who Was Right?
    by John-Erik Persson on July 9, 2018 at 9:12 am

    Abstract Dissidents have spent lots of time on Einstein, but has not observed what happened when Einstein was only 3 years old. At that time Potier wrote a paper, stating that Michelson’s prediction for his experiments, (MMX), with Morley, were interpreted in error by Michelson. Michelson had assumed light to take the fastest – not shortest […]

  • CNPS 2018 A Great Success!
    by David de Hilster on July 2, 2018 at 9:39 pm

    The 4th edition of the CNPS conferences (and almost 30th edition of the combined NPA / CNPS conferences) was a resounding success. Live Broadcast to YouTube For the first time, there was multi-camera live coverage of the event. The coverage had up to 4 camera angles and the slides of the presenters were piped directly […]

  • Euclide's Mistakes
    by John-Erik Persson on June 21, 2018 at 12:28 pm

    The 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 a proof for this postulate – the […]

  • The Confusion in Physics
    by John-Erik Persson on June 11, 2018 at 9:21 pm

    Einstein’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 to refute Einstein’s ideas. His ideas contains many theories, with and without […]

  • Michelson Was Right
    by John-Erik Persson on May 5, 2018 at 6:24 pm

    Our problem is that mainstream refuses to talk to us, when we say that Einstein was wrong. I, and prof Hartwig Thim in Linz, have another problem and that is that CNPS members refuse to talk to us when we say that Lorentz also was wrong. I am still waiting for response on my book […]

  • The Michelson-Morley Scandal
    by John-Erik Persson on April 27, 2018 at 2:10 pm

    The wave or particle confusion, and the twin paradox, were created when Einstein was a child, by Lorentz and other scientists. This great error in physics was done when they together abolished Michelson’s prediction for the Michelson-Morley tests. So, Einstein and Lorentz were wrong and Michelson was right, when he stated no effect in the […]

  • Dorm-Style Room Accommodations at CNPS 2018
    by David de Hilster on April 5, 2018 at 4:18 pm

    This year’s conference at the University of Connecticut is being held in the beautiful Nathan Hale Inn on the UConn campus and offers economy rooms to guests of the 2018 CNPS International Conference. With 3 people to a room, rooms cost $69 a night plus tax. This all information about other accommodations can be found […]

  • Kinetic Theory and Flatlining of Polyatomic Gases
    by Kent William Mayhew on March 26, 2018 at 11:07 pm

      Kinetic Theory and Flatlining of Polyatomic Gases Hello everyone at CNPS I have not blogged in a while but still I am working on getting people interested in the rewriting of thermodynamics. Part of this path includes changing the way that we envision and teach kinetic theory. Just to remind you. In simplest context […]

  • The Growing Earth, Moon, and Sun
    by Eugene A. Ellis on March 19, 2018 at 5:10 pm

    In an expanding universe, all matter that matters consists of elemental atoms. We can “see” elements, but not their atoms. All elements are different from one another as are their atoms. Before ionization, an element would be classified as unchanging dark matter. Everything changes the first time an element ionizes. Here, the element becomes spectra-visible […]

  • The Creation of a Paradox
    by John-Erik Persson on March 11, 2018 at 1:41 pm

    Abstract A Potier created a paradox 136 years ago, by changing Michelson’s prediction for the experiments (MMX), that he did with Morley. Potier reduced the prediction by half, and the missing part was later used by Lorentz to motivate the absurd concept dilation of time. The mistake was repeated by Einstein in his light clock. […]

  • CNPS Newsletter Jan - Feb 2018
    by Bruce Nappi on February 24, 2018 at 4:45 pm

    1. What is the President up to? Hello CNPS members and Newsletter readers, We are starting 2018 running! Many things are happening. We have added one more YouTube channel making it four channels with another coming on board in the coming months. We are officially opening the conference registration on March 1. Please reserve June […]

  • Its about time to see the light and the etheric ether
    by John-Erik Persson on February 15, 2018 at 11:37 pm

    Light motion Light is a wave motion, which means that light propagates in spherical or plane wave fronts. We describe these wave fronts by their normals, which is the ray direction. Therefore, the ray is, by definition, always orthogonal to wave fronts. The ray has no physical existence. The wave front instead has the physical existence. The […]

  • A completion to my earlier post
    by John-Erik Persson on January 21, 2018 at 11:47 am

    A prejudice My interpretation of MMX includes a very small motion in transverse direction that can fool some people to regard the idea impossible. However, assuming the ether entrained by the Sun means that we must give the same capacity to the Earth. So, ether wind is only 10^-6 due to rotating Earth, in horizontal direction. […]

  • Swimming Across a River
    by John-Erik Persson on January 19, 2018 at 8:01 pm

    A hidden assumption In MMX a swimmer is used in an analogy. It is assumed (in error) that a swimmer compensates for the motion of the water and thereby minimizes the length of his motion. A smart swimmer does not do so. Instead he minimizes the time in the water, not the length of his trip. So, […]

  • The most important error in physics
    by John-Erik Persson on January 8, 2018 at 9:47 pm

    My earlier post The ray and the beam got no interest, and no comments, so, I try again, since I regard this as a very important issue. Coherent systems In a coherent system we can detect orientation of a wave front by a telescope. In a telescope we use reflecting or refracting surfaces to transform a plane […]

  • Planet Earth: A Question of Expansion
    by Eugene A. Ellis on December 27, 2017 at 10:06 pm

    “An illustrated presentation by Professor SW Carey, of his long held theory that the earth’s expansion provides an explanation of continental drift and other geological phenomena.” (1982) The YouTube video is 25 minutes long: Submitted by Gene Ellis […]

  • CNPS Newsletter Nov-Dec 2017
    by Bruce Nappi on December 2, 2017 at 5:38 pm

    1. What is the President up to? Hello CNPS members and Newsletter readers, We are starting many new exciting directions and projects in the CNPS so, hang on to your hats! I want to especially thank someone who has put in more hours than any member or director in the CNPS: Bruce Nappi. Bruce is […]

  • The Ray and the Beam
    by John-Erik Persson on November 11, 2017 at 10:48 pm

    My ideas about the important distinction between ray and beam appears to have got very low acceptance. One commentator stated that he ignored this distinction as not important. Perhaps he did not understand my points. Maybe I was not clear enough. So, I try again. The wave motion c is an oscillation (time dependent) and the […]

    by Eugene A. Ellis on November 3, 2017 at 9:37 pm

    Reduced gravity on a smaller planet does not adequately explain the size of gigantic dinosaurs. The largest recorded land creature today is a 12 ton elephant killed in 1956. Accordingly, the largest life size permitted with a 50% reduction in gravity (~200 MYA?) would be a dinosaur weighing 24 tons. How is that possible when […]

  • Planck and the Conservation of Energy
    by John-Erik Persson on October 8, 2017 at 3:24 pm

    According to Planck an electron in a constant orbit cannot produce thermal radiation. He concluded, from the law of energy conservation, that the electron must lose energy, and thereby also stability. However, we must regard the fact that two electromagnetic waves in, opposite phase, can produce zero radiation. This fact is also in conflict to […]
