Steorn: A Custard Pie In The Face Of Science

Tuesday, August 7, 2007

Arthur C Clarke once said: Every revolutionary idea seems to evoke three stages of reaction. They may be summed up by the phrases:

(1) It's completely impossible.
(2) It's possible, but it's not worth doing.
(3) I said it was a good idea all along.

It's only a matter of time now until point number 3 is fulfilled. Since the whole Steorn public campaign started back in August 2006 we've seen, one after another, scientists being wheeled out by the media to debunk Steorn's claims. Every one of them citing the history of perpetual motion and how no-one has yet achieved it, relying on the fact we haven't done it yet as some sort of proof that it is impossible.

Well I've got news for them. We once thought the world was flat. We once looked at the stars and worshipped the gods - now we travel among the stars ourselves. Science need only look at how far we have came and should stop before it puts it's pompus foot in it's mouth once again.

I'll end on another appropriate quote from the great man himself:

Clarke's First Law: When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

Arthur C Clarke.

Stop coming out with pompous statements and show us some of your stuff, you big plonker.

Physics and Thermodynamics are not things that someone just took from inside of a Hat. You should be reading about physics instead of claiming this nonsense.

And talking about Quotes, what about:

"If someone points out to you that your pet theory of the universe is in disagreement with Maxwell's equations — then so much the worse for Maxwell's equations. If it is found to be contradicted by observation — well, these experimentalists do bungle things sometimes. But if your theory is found to be against the second law of thermodynamics I can give you no hope; there is nothing for it but to collapse in deepest humiliation."

* The Nature of the Physical World (1915); chapter 4

Maxwells Equations are 136 years old and have many known problems and ommissions: see latest post: Flaws in Classical EM Theory
