Are We Witnessing A Revolution In Physics?

Hello everyone,

Last week Doctor Dick suggested the following website “just for fun” –

When he said ‘just for fun,’ I thought he was poking fun at Alex. But no! He shares the view with Alex that time is not a dimension!

How bizarre! More than one physicist, with the same antiquated view of time, post on the same, relatively unknown and relatively vacant web site (no offense, webmaster).

For those of us who aren’t per se physicists, but well-read enough to understand a few things, this may seem like a strange coincidence [and might tend to make one think some of these 'folks' are simply different names used by one person ;) ].

Worse, if you’re not well-read (or intelligent) enough to realize their outmoded notion of time is wrong, you might actually read some of the material in here and think, ”there’s a sweeping revolution in physics, and I’ve got a front-row seat at this web site!!”

But I have a simpler explanation.

(1) Dick listed the web site, but it reflects Alex’s views as well.
(2) Some of what Alex posts in here are direct quotes from the above-mentioned website.
(3) When Alex insults someone who disagrees with his views on time, he accuses them of watching too much Star Trek
(4) The web site accuses people who disagree with their views of time of watching too much Star Trek

So, either {a} we are witnessing the world of physics quietly experiencing a major upheaval, and time is indeed not a dimension (despite the opinions of Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Max Planck, Richard Feynman, Stephen Hawking, Kip Thorne, John Wheeler… etc. – most of which are listed as “crackpots” on the above mentioned website), or {b} a couple of nutjobs have come to to disgorge their obtuseness.

Ain’t Occam’s razor neat?
