On May 22, 2004 an Open Letter to the Scientific Community was published in New Scientist. It was an open attack against the Big Bang Theory.
Many scientists that are proposing alternative theories and related experiments are simply blocked by the “Big Bang Mafia”.
The most interesting alternative to the Big Bang Theory is Plasma Cosmology. Plasma Cosmology uses the Electro-Magnetic Field as an explanation.
The big bang relies on a growing number of hypothetical entities, things that we have never observed– inflation, dark matter and dark energy are the most prominent examples.
Without them, there would be a fatal contradiction between the observations made by astronomers and the predictions of the big bang theory.
In no other field of physics would this continual recourse to new hypothetical objects be accepted as a way of bridging the gap between theory and observation. It would, at the least, raise serious questions about the validity of the underlying theory.
The big bang is not the only framework available for understanding the history of the universe. Plasma cosmology and the Steady-State Model both hypothesize an evolving universe without beginning or end.
These and other alternative approaches can also explain the basic phenomena of the cosmos, including the abundances of light elements, the generation of large-scale structure, the cosmic background radiation, and how the redshift of far-away galaxies increases with distance.
They have even predicted new phenomena that were subsequently observed, something the big bang has failed to do.
Plasma cosmology is a theory generally attributed to Nobel Price winner Hannes Alfven that attempts to explain the development of the visible universe through the interaction of electromagnetic forces on astrophysical plasma.
Plasma is a state of matter in which atoms and molecules are so hot, that they have ionized by breaking up into their constituent parts, negatively charged electrons and positively charged ions. Because the particles are charged, they are strongly influenced by Electro-Magnetic Forces.
Plasma is almost everywhere. At least ninety-nine percent of the known universe is, in fact, matter in its plasma state. The Sun is a giant ball of plasma.
Plasma in space consists entirely of ions and electrons, and is thus very energetic or ‘hot’. Only when cooled does it form the matter to which we are familiar here on Earth: solids, liquids, and gases.
Because plasma remains electrically charged in space, it is influenced more by electromagnetic forces than gravity. In fact space, once considered mostly empty, has been found to be alive with plasma. Vast flows of charged particles have been discovered spanning hundreds-of-thousands of light years across interstellar space.
The influence of the Electro-Magnetic Force is highly undervalued in many areas of Science. A holistic view on the effect of these forces on many levels (Earth (Earthquakes, Weather)), The Human (Emotions, Memory)) is called the Electric Universe.
Recent interdisciplinary studies raise the possibility that the earth experienced a high-energy-density auroral storm towards the end of the Neolithic age, possibly peaking at around 3100 BCE, which human cultures have recorded in the form of petroglyphs, geoglyphs and a class of rituals and myths conveniently described as ‘creation myths’.
The spectacular lively shapes caused by the instabilities in the plasma could have been remembered by the ancients as gods, ancestors or dragons, whose mysterious antics in the celestial world constituted the destruction and creation of worlds.
Examples of Myths that are related to Plasma Effects are:
