The wealthy elite have controlled the mainstream science media increasingly since the late 1800s and early 1900s, just like with the mainstream news media. The science media have suppressed a lot of good science and promoted a lot of bad science. Behavioral science is aware of such tendencies maybe more than other branches of science are. As is well known, predators must use deception to capture prey and to rival competitors. The wealthy elite are a predatory (or parasitic) class in society and do similar things.
This thread in the Science subverse https://voat.co/v/science/668425 inspired me to start this thread. I've been a member of the Thunderbolts.info forum since 2007. It's an alternative science site for Electric Universe theory and Catastrophism, which are related. There I've discussed occasionally with others how to improve science. Trump's victory and the internet are giving a lot of people hope that humanity can finally free itself from the barriers to progress typical under the predatory classes.
Astronomy, physics, geology and biology have all been mired in irrationality for many decades. They have all made progress despite such blind alleys, obviously, but much greater progress lies around the corner, if the major obstacles can be removed. The scientific method needs to be improved, because it does not deal effectively with fraud, group think, authoritarianism etc. Scientists and science fans need more efficient procedures for determining individually and collectively what is fact or probability. They need to learn to tolerate seemingly contradictory facts and probabilities, instead of wanting to suppress alternative views or models.
Astronomy is my favorite science and I hope to see humanity colonizing space asap. One of the best "scientists" I've read is Charles Chandler, who is a programmer and who has a site with his own science papers on it at http://qdl.scs-inc.us/?top=6031 , which he calls Astrophysics and Geophysics. He found that stellar system accretion likely requires electrical forces, much more than it can get from gravity alone. The redshift of light is not due to universe expansion significantly, but rather to bipolar jets. The redshift is due to electrons impinging on positive charges in jets and moving them away from the observer. Black holes are not overwhelming gravitational sinks, but are rings of high-velocity, counter-streaming positive and negative charges or ions, which produce the extreme magnetic fields. All exotic astronomical objects, including white dwarfs, pulsars, quasars, quasar clusters, or black holes, etc are similar ring stars. The Crab pulsar is the most clearly visible; i.e. the ring is visible in it, I think in x-ray images. That pulsar is also a magnetic thruster by the way. Neutron stars don't exist, as neutrons are unstable outside of atomic nuclei; their half-life is only about 12 minutes.
The site, http://MilesMathis.com , has a large number of papers mostly on physics, some on astronomy, which explains many of the errors in quantum mechanics and in many physics equations.
My thread Evidence of Ancient Global Cataclysm at http://www.thunderbolts.info/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=16025&start=45#p109594 discusses how tsunamis likely deposited nearly all sedimentary rock strata over a period of months.
- This http://www.thunderbolts.info/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=16025&start=60#p109653 briefly discusses megasequences of strata.
- This http://www.thunderbolts.info/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=16025&start=390#p112161 discusses seeming absurdities in conventional rock strata formation theory.
- This http://NewGeology.us discusses how an asteroid impact likely broke up the supercontinent and caused rapid continental drift and orogenesis, or mountains formation.
