Thunderbolts of the gods

http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...%22thunderbolt

Anyone?

Well, according to this. Black holes are rubbish, their is no dark matter, comet are not dirty snowballs and myths are actually useful in plasma physics.

Plasma cosmology has achieved surprising success in predicting major discoveries of the space age.


Plasma cosmology does not require such mathematical inventions as the Big Bang, dark matter, dark energy, and Black Holes.


There are no isolated islands in space. All matter in space is connected by manifestations of the electric force.


The electric force operates between matter at all levels, from subatomic particles to galactic clusters.


Electricity is the primary force organizing cosmic structure in the heavens.
Is this rubbish,

Wallace Thornhill earned a degree in physics and electronics at the University of Melbourne, Australia, and began postgraduate studies. Before entering university he had been inspired by Immanuel Velikovsky’s best-selling book, Worlds in Collision. However, the lack of curiosity and the frequent hostility toward this challenge to mainstream science convinced Thornhill to pursue an independent path outside academia.
Wallace Thornhill supports the theory. However, he seem like a crazy person.

Also, modern cosomolgy is biased against electricity, because of Einstein. See they said that cosomology assumes only gravity and discounts electricity, even when Einstein said his theory was not complete and did not make sense. And then scientist went on using Einstein theory to invent black holes and dark matter, discounting electricity.

P.S. The music is annoying as hell.

This must be about the fifth thread started about that thunderbolts of the gods documentary. Most of it is speculative non science based vague crap, the ancient history parts escpecially (in my opinion).

Some of it is backed up by scientific evidence. But its not electric universe theorists that can take the credit for anything in that docu (apart from the wrong bits), in most cases they are merely using the work of various plasma cosmologists from papers in various reputable journals and passing it off as their own and claiming some sort of divine knowledge about how the universe works.

Theres about five threads on this already. All probably with the same title.

To the OP, UTFSE!
