Lightning strikes

Lightning strikes on a sidewalk make a pattern that is like a miniature model of the valleys of Mars. For those who want to find NASA lies, they can look here. The problem is that the accepted dogma in cosmology cannot account for lightning strikes on this scale. It is horrifying to contemplate how this happened, and that it may still be happening. One can understand why NASA wants to ignore it.


CME hits earth tonight

Tomorrow morning at one am, the X-9.3 solar flare’s earth directed component of the coronal mass ejection (CME) is due to hit earth.  A second, smaller, X-class flare occurred today.

Space Weather Live– // We see a clear asymmetrical full halo coronal mass ejection with the bulk of the CME heading well towards the south-east. It does seem that sunspot region 2673 has rotated a bit too far to the west already for a real head on collision with the plasma cloud. Nonetheless there is a clear earth-directed component and an impact is likely to occur.

We estimate the bulk speed of this coronal mass ejection to be in the 1.700 to 1.800km/s range which is fairly fast but the flanks do seem quite a bit slower which makes this a very tricky situation. We also need to factor in the M5.5 CME which is still on it’s way as that will also affect how much the X9 CME will decelerate. All in all a very complex situation but we estimate that a 42 hour transit from the Sun to Earth seems plausible meaning the plasma cloud could arrive at Earth around 06:00 UTC this Friday, 8 September 2017. As always there is a healthy amount of uncertainty with these impact times but it should give a rough idea when to expect enhanced geomagnetic conditions. //

Confirmation Bias

Confirmation bias, or the logical fallacy of “affirming the consequent,” is always a danger in science. We see a glaring example of it in those who are emotionally committed to asserting that the earth is flat, and then interpret all data by the assumption that the earth is flat.  Also, we see it in the scientific community and its emotional commitment to the required dogma that nothing whatever did magic and turned itself into organic goo, which then did more magic and turned itself into people over millions of years. Other unquestionable emotional commitments are found in various scientific disciplines, including cosmology. No emotional commitment is more generally found among scientists and even the general public than that to the Copernican Principle.
