There. Is. No. Big. Bang! A Legal Scholar Gives His Evidence

13 Dec

The above artistic rendition is approved by both CERN and NASA as an accurate representation of the “big bang” and our universe. What’s wrong with this picture?

By Mike McGee

Most people today believe the outdated twentieth-century notion that “big bang” is what created our universe. A minuscule singularity exploded and held enough energy to propel the rocks and stars throughout a cone-shaped section of empty space for more than 13 billion light years of time and space. The hard truth, according to me, is that our universe, however big or small it is, has been around a long time, without the need for a singularity to get it started.

The twentieth-century creation myth of the “big bang” is not and never has been based on facts or observations. It is a fictional story told by scientists who have done mathematical calculations, and cherry-picked “observations” through telescopes. It is full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Can I Blow Your Mind Again? Groups of Bacteria Inside Humans May Have Independent Thinking or Reasoning Abilities.

15 Sep

By Mike McGee

As we discovered in a previous blog entry at https://mcgeepost.com/2017/09/05/want-your-mind-blown-science-shows-the-human-brain-is-not-a-single-entity-its-billions-of-individuals-who-dont-touch-each-other/, there are about 100 billion active neurons in each human brain. Most scientists believe that the collectively grouped neurons in the individual brain conduct most of the thinking and doing activity of each such person.

The hundred billion individual neurons in the brain have life yet not intelligence. It is an established scientific fact that only when grouped together do the neurons in a human brain take on a collective sentient intelligence.

Now let’s take it one step further, outside known science. Individual bacteria in the human body have life yet not intelligence. We can thus easily imagine that when grouped together in mass these bacterial clusters may act like grouped neurons, and have intelligence.

We are going to explore this other and additional possible source of human thinking and acting. Aside from the neurons and the brain, the non-human bacteria living in each persons’ body may have a meaningful effect on our thinking and doing. Continue reading

Want your Mind Blown? Science shows the Human Brain is not a single entity. It’s Billions of Individuals Who Don’t Touch Each Other.

By Mike McGee

Look at the two pictures above side by side, and tell me which one is a human neuron. Yeah, the other one is a squid. And like a colony of squid, the human brain is a whole lot of Individuals Who Don’t Touch Each Other. Knowing this blew my mind. Or at least it blew certain individual living entities – neurons – within my mind. How about you?

Generally accepted science says that each single human brain and nervous system is made up of about 100 billion neurons. Each of these neurons is a separate cellular body which operates on its own, though it accepts and rejects indirect input from other neurons. Each of these neurons is factually an isolated island of life, since no one neuron touches another neuron directly at any time. All of their communication comes from sending chemicals across the cup-like ends of lots of arms that look much like the suction cups on the tentacles of a squid. With neurons, specific chemicals pass from one neuron to another across these cups or receptors, as one might pass food from one person to another. There is no direct contact. Vast numbers of glial cells surround, support and protect the neurons. Neurons are found in nerve pathways throughout the body as well as in the brain.

Global Warming: Darwinian Evolution in Humans?

12 May

By Mike McGee

Most scientists have a difficult time looking at the possibility of the Darwinian evolution of the physical form and structure of human beings in responses to challenges from the environment. We can easily see how a plant or a lower animal can alter its structure and very being, or become extinct either locally or widespread, under evolutionary pressures exerted over only a very few years.

Global warming is almost certainly a product of the increase in the population of the earth from 2 billion to 7.5 billion souls in the span of less than a century. It is mathematically definite that the increase in body heat and cooking fires and auto engine heat alone will raise the natural planetary temperature to some degree. Add on factories and HVAC and land denuded for agriculture or meat, and other things needed to sustain a larger population, and there is even more natural and inevitable pressure increasing the planetary temperature.

The Fallacy of “Dismantling Mass Incarceration:” Wishful thinking refuted by ordinary mathematics and science.

26 May

By Mike McGee

I’ve noticed that there is now academic as well as popular interest in “Dismantling Mass Incarceration” in the United States. When serious academics get involved, it’s time to address the issue head-on. Continue reading

Time for Ethical Disclosure in Physics

bigBang

By Mike McGee

No one admires physicists more than me. The modern world as we know it would never have evolved and would not be sustainable without the heroic contributions of this learned profession. Therefore I am disappointed when these brilliant and heroic men and women stray outside the bounds of reality and succeed in convincing all of us that their abstract theories and simulations are proven facts we can believe in.

The Physical Immortality of Man, Part Two

By Mike McGee

In Part One of this two-part series, at https://mcgeepost.com/2014/02/16/the-physical-immortality-of-man-part-one/ we followed the life-cycle of bacteria and of a simple insect, the Luna Moth, through complete cycles, paying attention to the details of the process. We demonstrated the role of living DNA and the genome in the replication of each stage in the life of the moth. Now we’re going to review these general principles to make sure we are clear and that you understand what was said in Part One. After this review we will move into the specific realm of human life.
