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.

  • Mathematics is powerful and dangerous
    by John-Erik Persson on September 2, 2022 at 12:53 pm

    Mathematics is powerful and dangerous John-Erik Persson It is very important that we always remember that mathematics is just a tool for doing physics. The fact that math really is very powerful, has a negative side in the high risk that we may forget to see this important distinction, and thereby be fooled by […]

  • Decontamination of physics
    by John-Erik Persson on July 7, 2022 at 2:51 pm

    Decontamination of physics John-Erik Persson The three pillars of physics Modern physics is based on the following basic concepts: Quantum mechanics, or QM. Special theory of relativity, or SRT. General theory of relativity, or GRT. QM Since light is not observable, we must draw conclusions about light from matter, in the form of electrons, exposed […]

  • Gravity does not move!
    by John-Erik Persson on June 14, 2022 at 9:56 pm

    Gravity does not move! John-Erik Persson Abstract The speed of gravity has been a much-discussed concept. However, in this article it is demonstrated that gravity does not move at all. This conclusion is based on a theory of quantum gravity, that was presented by Fatio 300 years ago. It is found that Fatio’s model was […]

  • The illusion of time dilation, Big Bang and Pioneer anomaly
    by John-Erik Persson on April 3, 2022 at 10:11 pm

    The illusions of time dilation, Big Bang and Pioneer anomaly Abstract A classical mechanism in atomic clocks explains the behavior of atomic clocks in the global positioning system (GPS), by the state of motion of the ether, inside the clocks. Therefore, the concept dilation of time is a not needed and is just an […]

  • Did stellar aberration give us individual aging?
    by John-Erik Persson on August 7, 2021 at 3:07 pm

    Is it so that the long story of individual aging started as early as in the discovery of stellar aberration? See the link below and decide by yourself! John-Erik […]

  • Ron was wrong
    by John-Erik Persson on March 11, 2021 at 3:51 pm

    Ron Hatch was a prominent expert working in the global posotioning system (GPS). Ron was right in his refutations of Einstein’s theory of relativity (SRT), based on experiences from GPS. Ron was also wrong regarding his exlanation to the aberration observed in very long base interferometry (VLBI), based on gravity from our sun. Instead, an […]

  • Ivor Catt and The Myth Of The Rolling Wave
    by Harry Hamlin Ricker on November 4, 2020 at 7:47 pm

    The myth of the rolling wave is a term used by this writer to describe a problem in electromagnetic theory first raised by the English scientist Ivor Catt, in articles published in the English magazine Wireless World. The problem is referred to as a myth, since it has its source not in physics textbooks, but […]

  • Mistakes?
    by John-Erik Persson on August 17, 2020 at 3:14 pm

    Mistakes – or? Science became fiction Physics became fiction between 1882 and 1887, since the real motion of light (a vector sum; beam direction) was assumed to be controlled by collimator, distant mirror and telescope in MMX and in the detection of stellar aberration. However, the ether wind is irrelevant in relation to reflectors and […]

  • Gravity 2
    by John-Erik Persson on July 13, 2020 at 7:19 pm

    Gravity – a Neutrino Effect? John-Erik Persson About 300 years ago an ether model, that could explain gravity, was presented by Fatio. He assumed very fast and very small particles to propagate in all directions. These particles could penetrate large bodies like Earth. However, this penetration had the effect that the intensity in the flow […]

  • MEMO to CNPS conference 2020 about waves
    by John-Erik Persson on May 20, 2020 at 4:20 pm The wave models – beam and ray The vector sum, c+v, defines the motion of a beam, and can only be roughly estimated as the direction of maximal amplitude, and is therefore not very important. The motion of a ray as c(1+vL/c), excluding the ether wind inside the wave front, and thereby describing a […]

  • The MMX question
    by John-Erik Persson on May 10, 2020 at 10:50 am

    The wave front and the mirror Due to the irrelevance of the ether wind in relation to mirrors wave fronts in MMX are conserved in equipment frame, and mirrors are conserving wave fronts, as stated in the MEMO to the NPA conference in 2009. This has been defined in different ways, but, since the important […]

  • The Michelson-Morley question -- and the ether
    by John-Erik Persson on May 1, 2020 at 5:27 pm

    The Michelson-Morley Question  – and the Ether John-Erik Persson Abstract This article is analyzing the famous experiments, (MMX), that Michelson did together with Morley. These tests have produced confusing and paradoxical results, and have been debated for about 140 years. Questions regarding quantum jumping, quantization, gravity and entanglement are also discussed. Background The […]

  • About Michelson-Morley
    by John-Erik Persson on April 13, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    COMMENTS ON THE MICHELSON-MORLEY PARADOX SOLVED By Justin Jacobs Nick Percival had asked me to comment on this article, and I think the blog is suitable for this purpose. I think that the paper contains many good arguments against the special theory of relativity. It is demonstrated that Einstein used mathematics as a magician and […]

  • How Science Became Fiction
    by John-Erik Persson on April 1, 2020 at 7:05 pm

    John-Erik Persson Background Modern physics states that twins can become of different ages, if they have moved with very different speeds. The reason is that time is said to progress with different speeds for individuals in different states of motion. This is called time dilation. These ideas are in conflict with common sense, and […]

  • Individual aging -- science or fiction?
    by John-Erik Persson on March 21, 2020 at 7:44 pm The idea of individual aging has been productive in science fiction – and caused a dead end in physics. This idea is an effect of time dilation and caused by Potier in 1882. He changed Michelson’s prediction based on constant wave vector, c, to constant wave magnitude, c, in the equipment frame in Michelson […]

  • The Third Option
    by John-Erik Persson on March 1, 2020 at 1:06 pm Binary logic, excluding the middle, has produced binary computers, but also contributed to binary thinking in the western world, for instance in politics. An important example is the long, long debate regarding the ether. The question: is there a reference frame for the propagation of light? This question seems never to generate a […]

  • Is the Ether Wind Decidable?
    by John-Erik Persson on February 7, 2020 at 7:50 pm Abstract An illusion of undecidability of an ether wind was the basis for establishing the theory of special relativity (SRT). The reason to that mistake was a wrong interpretation of light behavior in both arms in the Michelson and Morley’s tests (MMX), and also in the interpretation of stellar aberration. A deviation from the […]

  • Critical Thinkers
    by John-Erik Persson on January 12, 2020 at 5:55 pm

    Critical Thinkers? Do they exist? I have searched for them with mails and blog posts, but failed to see them. Critical thinkers should like to discuss with opponents, but I have found that members and directors in CNPS finish conversation when they see a great discrepancy in opinions, instead of regarding this as a reason […]

  • The Tragical History of Theoretical Physics
    by John-Erik Persson on December 30, 2019 at 6:21 pm

    The Tragic History of Theoretical Physics PDF below John-Erik Persson, Budkavlevägen 5, 141 74 Segeltorp, Sweden Abstract This article contains no mathematical concepts, since this article is primarily intended for non-scientists. The reason is that mainstream physicists are not likely to read dissident papers because they are deeply indoctrinated by the relativity dogma. […]

  • Two important errors in MMX
    by John-Erik Persson on December 16, 2019 at 10:06 pm

    In the longitudinal arm: The assumption that transverse forces propagate as c+/-v should be followed by the same assumption regarding longitudinal forces. Therefore, the assumed effect is compensated and not observable. In the transverse arm: The assumption that the vector sum c+v is reflected by the distant mirror is wrong, since the mirror is transparent […]
