More Routine Lies

Sean Carroll admits the ghastly truth

March 25, 2015

I hope that Sean Carroll does not mind a bit of banter, he has admitted that the universe is not a black hole. He is a Harvard man and a Harvard man cannot be told anything.”

Of course Carroll did no such thing. Some Ron/Crothers-style amateur physicists have been very excited by the fact that the apparent radius of the universe is of the same order as the Schwarzschild radius of a black hole having about the same size (due to the universe being spatially flat). Someone like Carroll would never have subscribed to such ‘numerology’ being meaningful in the first place, so calling his dismissal, of that silly idea, an ‘admission’ is just a typical bit of Ron-style disinformation.
