You tell me you credentials first.

I see you know about spin

1. In one post you say

The electric field of charge moving with acceleration is what we label as "photon".

I disagree that the electric field is a photon. It takes 2 to tango.

2. Then in the next post you talk about a magnetic field as part of the photon.

I think the moving charge produces many photons. It is not a photon itself

Actually I think it's just semantics.

An accelerating charge will radiate photons.

But my own version of quantum mechanics even disagrees with this. I think it radiates fields, which can later collapse into photons.
