If Harvard will accept that paper as valid physics, then my opinion of Harvard descends to new lows.

Anyone who is familiar with the issue of "dark matter" understands that the whole issue is the failure of the galaxies to abide by the assumptions, 1. that their motion is entirely described by gravitational effects and 2. that the stars we can see constitute the majority of the mass of the universe. Since, as far as professional astronomers are concerned, #1 cannot possibly be in error, they presume it is #2 hence the "dark matter" problem. Any rational person would realize that either assumption or both may be in error. Astronomers completely ignore electro-magnetic effects as they presume a light year of vacuum does not provide sufficient insulation to allow charge differences to exist over such a range! If charge separations exist, electric forces exceed gravitational forces by many orders of magnitude. Secondly, the assumption that absence of gas clouds implies no condensed bodies is not well defended.

Yanniru uses this lack of information to form a defense of an idea which otherwise has no support to speak of.

Yanniru is not a competent physicist! He gets comments only from people on this forum because the stuff he promulgates is both illogical and undefended!

Have fun -- Dick
