    I suppose one could argue that gravity prevents that from happening...

    Anyway it looks like a spiral galaxy, and that is where the electrical vortex theory making far more sense in throwing stars out of the center of galaxy, after combining protons and electrons drawn in from plasma clouds in space in the center of the vortex. Instead of having a supermassive black hole pulling everything in, and you don't have to invent a bunch of nonsense like dark matter and dark energy to explain how it is all connected...

    Are you paying attention Goldiestein? No satanical dark matter/energy required...
    Cultural Marxism: -The idea that good, hard working, white people should pay for those who are not, and thus in the name of equality create the conditions for their own genetic annihilation

    Pathological Science


    Irving Langmuir coined the phrase pathological science in a talk in 1953.

    Pathological Science

    Pathological science is an area of research where "people are tricked into false results ... by subjective effects, wishful thinking or threshold interactions."[1][2] The term was first[3] used by Irving Langmuir, Nobel Prize-winning chemist, during a 1953 colloquium at the Knolls Research Laboratory. Langmuir said a pathological science is an area of research that simply will not "go away"ólong after it was given up on as "false" by the majority of scientists in the field. He called pathological science "the science of things that aren't so".[4][full citation needed] [5] Bart Simon lists it among practices pretending to be science: "categories ... such as ... pseudoscience, amateur science, deviant or fraudulent science, bad science, junk science, and popular science ... pathological science, cargo-cult science, and voodoo science".[6] Examples of pathological science may include Martian canals, N-rays, polywater, and cold fusion. The theories and conclusions behind all of these examples are currently rejected or disregarded by the majority of scientists.

    Pathological science, as defined by Langmuir, is a psychological process in which a scientist, originally conforming to the scientific method, unconsciously veers from that method, and begins a pathological process of wishful data interpretation (see the observer-expectancy effect and cognitive bias). Some characteristics of pathological science are:


    • The maximum effect that is observed is produced by a causative agent of barely detectable intensity, and the magnitude of the effect is substantially independent of the intensity of the cause.
    • The effect is of a magnitude that remains close to the limit of detectability, or many measurements are necessary because of the very low statistical significance of the results.
    • There are claims of great accuracy.
    • Fantastic theories contrary to experience are suggested.
    • Criticisms are met by ad hoc excuses.
    • The ratio of supporters to critics rises and then falls gradually to oblivion.

    Langmuir never intended the term to be rigorously defined; it was simply the title of his talk on some examples of "weird science". As with any attempt to define the scientific endeavor, examples and counterexamples can always be found.
