Proof of Ownership

November 29, 2016

To whom it may concern:
The attached map of 1917 proves conclusively that the land leased to William Newlands in 1897 was 1863b 507 on the attached map. It is 30 perches and it is absolutely clear that there was room to build two houses – numbers 48 and 50 Rhyddwen Road. In 1926 William Newlands purchased an additional 13.5 perches to the south. It has also been proven that this land was never part of the Philips Estate. The additional 13.5 perches belong to the Newlands Estate.”

You should certainly ask for an official ruling on that …

This is How to Do It, Ron

Go to this site,

scroll to the very bottom of the page … and wait. Now, is that not easier than all of your suspicious ‘scientometrics’? Let the general public see, and judge for itself, who exactly is downloading your ‘work’.

What About the Vortex Next Door?

Orbital Precession due to a Fluid Spacetime (vacuum or aether)

November 28, 2016

I have proven that a fluid spacetime or vacuum or aether produces orbital precession assuming the model r = alpha / (1 + epsilon cos (x theta)) valid for small precessions. The precession is produced by well defined values of the spin connection components due to the fluid spacetime, vacuum or aether.”

In fact, Ron has done worse than re-invent the Aether; he has re-invented Descartes’ vortices. So, Ron, having fiddled results for the Earth’s orbit by using your demented mathematics, how are you going to explain the orbital motion of the Moon. How are you going to model the tidal interactions of all three bodies?  All of your theories are like bad suits: ‘they fit only where they touch’.

Discussion of Evans / Morris book

November 28, 2016

I am satisfied that the experimental results are reproducible in one laboratory (that of AIAS Co President Gareth Evans) and in some cases repeatable (in the two different laboratories of Trevor Morris and Gareth Evans and also one or two other laboratories). Any results that are not repeatable and reproducible will not be used. Yet other laboratories worldwide might like to take up the rigorously objective challenge posed by the ECE theory of the Evans Morris effects, which has been intensely studied worldwide for two years or more. For example the interferometer experiment. The theory has been checked by computer algebra and in may other ways. The same is true of all the ECE papers, which amount to an example of Darwin’s evolutionary theory, thought has rapidly evolved completely away from the old physics. Similarly, ECE2 has produced severe new tests of the Dirac approximation and relativistic quantum mechanics.”

More drivel from this sad collection of has-beens, never-weres and wannabes. It is rather strange that Ceredigion County Council does not admit to having an optical laboratory. So where is Sewage performing his experiments? Is it perhaps his ‘spare room’, lavishly equipped with that laser whose quality he complained about in an Amazon review? As for Mr Morris, does he not find the exigences of laboratory management rather trying … given that he cannot read or write? Perhaps Mr Dennis Davis is on firmer ground; at least he has access to laboratory equipment. But in what sense are replications, carried out in laboratories which are probably highly fanciful, at all meaningful?  If a group of crackpots, mired in arrant pseudoscience and cut off from rational scientific intercourse, agree to misinterpret mundane optical effects as being Earth-shattering, that is not replication … that is conspiracy!

Out of Touch with the Field

“Corpuscular matter and fluid dynamics

OK thanks.”

We of course – not being scientific pariahs or amateurs – have easy access to all scientific papers. These results are indeed very relevant to fluid dynamics. But fluid dynamics has nothing to say about the vacuum. Ron has simply resurrected the old Aether theory (which has never gone away in the lunatic fringe) that was once universally believed. Unfortunately, when an experiment was performed (and then repeated again and again right up to the present time: it is now a ‘student exercise’) with the intent of detecting it, no evidence was found. Ever heard of Michelson and Morley, Ron?  The situation is slightly muddied nowadays because the Higgs field looks very much like an aether but, for various reasons, that does not perturb physicists. By the way, we await the news that somebody has provided Ron with a full copy of the paper. That person will certainly have broken the rules of some academic institution regarding copyright. Will it be the same person who did it last time? 


Fruit(-Loops) of the Poisonous Tree

Visit from Allen Meredith and Janis Fry

November 25, 2016

This is scheduled to take place next Friday morning. They hit the headlines with their work on DNA testing of the yew trees at Defynnog which I featured on this blog some time ago.The trees are about five thousand plus years old and Druidical.”

How nice it will be for Ron to have some company, even if they are mystics who are barely one step away from Da Vinci Code  madness. They will be able to compare their book projects: the mystics who can get published by non-vanity publishers, see the books being bought (rather than given away online) and receiving enthusiastic reviews rather than brickbats … compared with the loony works of a pseudoscientist who is a perpetual embarrassment to the entire country. Hey Ron, perhaps they can also tell you something about Cercis siliquastrum. That is better known as The Judas Tree.

Example by Horst Eckardt for paper 361 – Torkado Orbit

November 21, 2016″

Because Ron has been unusually taciturn of late (has even he become tired of his own incessant BS?), it falls to us to explain this strange ‘orbit’. It is also not mentioned in Paper 361. It is in fact the brain(less)child of one Gabi Mueller; a former Soviet-bloc ‘physicist’. Like many another loony, she has become all confused about reference-frames and claims to find it significant that – if one takes account of the galactic motion of the Sun – Earth sweeps out spirals in space. It is obvious, and devoid of fundamental interest. But she has come up with the so-called Torkado orbit (a sort of Ouroboros) in order to make the mundane seem mysterious. Like Ron, she also thinks that atoms and solar systems are the same (a defunct early 20th-century analogy) and has stated that electrons have a Torkado orbit. Again we observe how all of these nutters stick together and prop each other.

Wind 13.8%, 4 – 23 mph, Wales 13 – 23 mph 0737 local time

November 17, 2016

The wind in the Betws area is 13 mph now, barely enough to produce any power, because the giant turbines need 7 – 9 mph to start. Thw wind industry propaganda is completely deceptive. It claimed that Wales is an area of high wind, whereas my study shows that there is very rarely enough wind even to start the Betws turbines. My study is based on the gridwatch site and met office figures. Hopefully in the future there will be a real government, one strong enough to right all these offences against the People. It is known clearly now that reduction of CO2 does not affect the climate in any way, and wind turbines are essentially useless. The standard of education is low, otherwise no one would believe the rubbishy propaganda. It does not take much education to follow a wind map.”

So what do experts, rather than Trump-style conspiracy-theorist climate-change denying fake physicists, say about this matter?   What about this report, which says that wind-power will be in the lead in less than a decade:


What bunch of money-grubbing anti-democracy oligarchs wrote this? Oh dear, Siemens. Doesn’t Siemens Stain get money from them while working for you (and the German perpetual-motion bund)? Doesn’t that mean that you are indirectly benefiting from wind-turbine research? Perhaps you should demand that Eckardt gives up his Siemens-sinecure so that his continued employment no longer undermines your ‘principles’ … or those of Siemens.

Fake Physics from the Fake Physicist

Forces due to a Rotating Frame

November 16, 2016

These are all incorporated automatically in the ECE2 field equations of gravitation and dynamics, because the field equations are based on Cartan’s general spin connection. The 1835 Coriolis velocity and accelerations are due to the rotation of a plane polar system. They have caused many students and teachers to clean around the bend, trying to understand them. They are vaguely described in many textbooks as “pseudo-forces”. ”

They are usually called ‘fictitious forces’, because that is what they are. They were conjured-up, mainly by D’Alembert, in order to simplify the mathematics associated with movement within a rotating system. They have no reality outside of the system. They cannot, for instance, be used to propel a rotating system from within … even though there exist hundreds of patent applications for devices which supposedly do that very thing. We know that Ron does not understand centrifugal force, for a start, as he once claimed that a thrown hammer moves radially away from the thrower*. Fictitious forces are therefore handy for treating an isolated rotating system but say nothing useful on the (literally) universal scale. One loony who thought that mere rotation could replace gravity altogether was of course the late and unlamented Viv Pope; another Welsh loony from the Swansea area.  He said that Newton was hit on the head not because of gravity but because the apple was ‘orbiting at the wrong height for its speed’. He almost made Ron look sensible in comparison!

“Anyone who has gone around a bend (for example a string theorist or those who have fallen in to a black hole and emerged miraculously as white haired raving maniacs) knows that they are real. This was first realized in the sixteen thirties, when correcting cannon fire trajectories. As just seen in Note 362(2a) the use of an elliptical polar coordinate system is self consistent with orbital theory, and produces new velocities and accelerations. For a long time I have realized that there is a self contradiction in the use of a plane polar system for an elliptical or conic section orbit. The latest note resolves this contradiction. Hooke obviously did not understand the Coriolis forces, neither did Newton or Leibnitz or Euler or Lagrange. The latter edged towards an understanding, finally achieved by Coriolis in 1835, long after the time of Hooke, Newton and Leibnitz. My ancestral cousin John Aubrey (online “Brief Lives” or short biographies) had no grasp of mathematics but did write the truth and was a highly intelligent man. Hooke guessed that the inverse square law gives an elliptical orbit, but neither Hooke not Newton could have proven it because they had no grasp of a rotating or moving coordinate frame.”

Newton and Hooke did not need to consider fictitious forces, because they used incremental geometrical methods; ones which were still used by students until the advent of computers. As a schoolboy, one of us used to treat the unconstrained three-body problem by means of slide-rule, ruler, pencil and acres of scrap wallpaper; such problems are unsolvable only in the analytical sense. Hooke and Newton used to challenge each other to derive orbits under all sorts of conditions … including the precession of an elliptical orbit within a hollow Earth. One of the best-known fallacies concerning the Coriolis force is that it makes draining water swirl in opposite directions in the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Yes, it should … theoretically; but in practice its effect is drowned-out by other factors. The supposedly clear-cut effect is almost impossible to detect experimentally, but fraudsters on the equator make a pretty penny out of fooling tourists (such as Michael Palin) into thinking that it is easily demonstrated. Finally, we point out yet again that Ron makes no mention of tidal effects. He does not mention them because his contrived reasoning cannot be twisted that far!

Moron by Appointment?

UFT43 Read at Cambridge

November 15, 2016

This paper, on the Faraday Disk Generator, is almost always in the top ten of most popular items on www.aias.usand has been read over thirty thousand times since it was published in 2005, the year I was appointed by the Head of Staet as Civil List Pensioner, on the advice of Tony Blair.”

No Ron, a pension is not an appointment. In fact, it is the precise opposite of a job: it is the lack of a job. Faraday, a real scientist whose memory you daily insult by being on the same list of Civil List Pensioners, was also given a ‘grace and favour’ home at Hampton Court. Not content with insulting his memory by remaining on the same list, you tell lies about his generator. It has always been a great favourite in the lunatic fringe because fringers think that it does not obey Newton’s Third Law. Therefore, they reason, this makes perpetual motion and antigravity possible. This ludicrous idea gets a great deal of ‘traction’ because those who claim this are electrical engineers and it is an electrical device, so they must know what they are talking about … right? NO. Electrical engineers are taught physics on a need-to-know basis and their only ‘tools’ for explicating induction phenomena are the simplistic flux-linking and flux-cutting rules. These do not work with certain induction phenomena. Physicists like to call electromagnetism ‘relativity at low speeds’ and this is entirely true. In fact, ‘magnetism’ does not really exist as an independent phenomenon; it is simply a way of keeping track of the electrostatic interactions of relatively moving charged objects. If one tries to explain that to electrical engineers (or school-teachers), they think that the physicist is the crank. Similarly, just try to tell an electrical engineer that static charges [must] exist around a simple circuit and he will think you mad … until their presence is demonstrated to him experimentally. It is this poor physics-understanding among electrical engineers which makes some of them leading figures in the lunatic fringe: Eric Laithwaite being perhaps the most notorious example. It is a strange fact – to those who think that special relativity is relevant only to unattainable speeds – that it is needed in order to explain ‘everyday’ electrical devices (e.g. the design of CRT TVs had to take account of it). Is that not what Ron is doing in UFT43? No, he is simply trying to make the generator look like a perpetual-motion machine by using his usual dodgy mathematics. The activities of one of the co-authors, Guala-Valverde, is interesting in this regard. He has published essentially the same (Faraday-Generator) paper in at least six places, ranging from the American Journal of Physics to Apeiron. The AJP is a dependable non-loony source whereas Apeiron is/was the go-to journal for loony-tunes. It is amusing to observe how Guala-Valverde ‘tailored’ his paper to suit the various journals: not making any wild claims in AJP, but pushing a crowd-pleasing loony viewpoint in Apeiron. 

Political Comment: with Farage aiming to become an American (has anybody considered that he might be a Russian deep-cover ‘spetsnaz’ agent charged with wrecking Western economies from within) and then to be appointed ambassador to the Court of St James, is it possible that Trump might appoint Ron (already conveniently American) as his Chief Scientist? Totalitarian governments adore pseudoscience (Stalin re Lysenkoism, Hitler re Welteislehre). Yes, one of us had a nightmare … but they have a habit of coming true these days.

UFT88 Read at Churchill College Cambridge

November 12, 2016

Churchill founded the College in 1960 after a visit to MIT. Its architecture is modernist, not quite as impressive as my own Wolfson College Oxford, but quite interesting.”

The convention is, Ron, that one can call oneself an ‘Oxford Man’ or such-like only if one completed a first (or possibly higher) degree there. One does not get the right to do so on the grounds of a post-doc visit. So you are not a ‘Cornell Man’ either. Still, it is not as bad as your blatant claim to be a Fellow of Lancaster: that was a complete fabrication. What does it matter anyway? You royally screwed up your career, so your alma mater is irrelevant.

“I am Mr Myron Evans’ locally elected County Councillor and I have had to endure several years of defamatory comments from Mr Evans on his BLOG. The posting below [Business as Usual] talks of “replication” or plagiarism. I write local historical articles for local magazines as a hobby for no payment. Some years ago I wrote an historical article about an ancient local Church here “Eglwys Llaneithrim”. It was published in two magazines. Then suddenly my article appeared on Mr Evans’ Blog under his name as being the author. This was an eye opener. He had copied my article and used it as his under his name onto his BLOG. This is disgusting conduct for a man who receives a Queen’s Civil List Pension. He brings the Palace into utter disrepute. I have previously challenged Mr Evans to an open public debate in the village hall, but he will not respond. In the meantime he has tried to possess the property of a young family by claiming ownership of their property next door to his home. It is time a serious campaign exposed these issues of nasty delusions. We all know he reads this Crackpotwatch Blog. So Mr Evans, what do you say in response. Put it on your Blog, that will not accept comments from others.”

Energy from Spacetime Circuits: Replication

November 9, 2016

This is a very important development and will eventually form the basis for the second industrial revolution, during which power stations will emerge based on this type of circuitry. In my opinion governments worldwide should fund this type of work and develop these power stations with the utmost speed and with all despatch. They will make all current formats of power generation obsolete, including of course, wind turbines. The beauty of nature can be given back to the People and the wildlife safeguarded from extinction.”

Crackpots always ‘replicate’ the work of other crackpots … because nobody else will. When Faraday first reported electromagnetic induction, some equally eminent investigators ‘did not get it’ and tried to obtain an electrical output simply by winding wire around a magnet. They soon learned their mistake. Loonies never do; that is why a more recent one (‘Dr’ Bearden) was still trying the same magnet-wrapping thing (by now an outright scam) not too long ago and why the morons of AIAS  could provide theoretical ‘proof’.  Tell Ideotic that the simplest proof would be his household electricity bill … reading zero. Of course, Searl had such bills … but he was stealing the electricity by interfering with, or bypassing, the meter.

Suggested Monograph by Steve Bannister: “The Second Industrial Revolution”

November 9, 2016

I am very pleased to hear this, judging by your excellent Ph. D. Thesis (posted on it will be a very interesting book worthy of publication by the best publishing houses in economics. I will certainly be pleased to post a preprint on and I am sure that Sean MacLachlan will be pleased to post on we would ensure a much larger readership than any book publisher, however distinguished, and your work deserves to be read around the world.”

Isn’t that touching? The Dismal Scientist actually believes that Chemical and Engineering News is a ‘respected journal’. It is only a trade magazine! Such ‘shop-floor’ rags are notorious for spreading pseudoscience, due to the poor quality of their employees. For instance, Engineering commented favorably on Searl’s brother getting  public funding for his (i.e. his brother’s) magnetic motor. Eureka enthusiastically backed Shawyer’s pathetic Emdrive antigravity machine and Electrical Review supported the contention (of a friend of Eric Laithwaite) that there are three types of magnetism: they even made it the ‘cover story’. The layman really must learn that ‘not everybody is on the same page’ where ‘science’ is concerned. Physicists alone can be trusted to know what is going on.

Condolences to his wife and family, I think that the work of these pioneers has come to fruition in the last decade.”

We hate to be uncharitable … but some people just do not deserve charity. Just in case anyone has not ‘got it’ yet: we abhor crackpots … with a vengeance. They take science (and particularly physics), the only thing which truly advances the human species, and they distort it for their own nefarious ends. We have one regret … why could it not have been John Searl or … 

Advice to the Public Dick

NATURE editors perpetrate fraud

November 7, 2016

This is the result of dogma combined with the necessity to make sure of public funding for black hole theory – the “exigency of the machine” in the words of the poet R. S. Thomas. It has nothing to do with Baconian science. We know from scientometrics that a large percentage of the younger generation of physicists no longer accepts the old dogma. As just shown in chapter two of “ECE2: The Second Paradigm Shift”, the second Bianchi identity on which the old Einstein dogma rests directly, is incorrect due to torsion. This was first pointed out in UFT88. It follows that none of the predictions of the Einstein field equation can be meaningful. I don’t think that the “Nature” editors have the intellectual honesty or competence to argue with the eminent Australian scholar and AIAS Fellow Stephen Crothers. If UFT88 were submitted to “Nature” it would be used as blotting paper. It would be like sending Clause Four of the Labour Manifesto to the tory prime minister. We have outflanked all of that censorship.”

Crothers the Public Dick (formerly Sam Spade, but that was unfair to Spade) reminds us of Stefan Marinov. He was a loony who, apparently, held a real doctorate and was also virulently anti-Einstein … although his ‘bag’ was to have supposed experimental evidence against relativity rather than just offering amateurish mathematics. He also had a long feud with Nature magazine, which sometimes published his letters. He found other ways of getting his ‘work’ into the magazine: one Christmas he sent it an electromagnetic puzzle in the form of a diagram. It was an old puzzle, and one which is a conundrum only to electrical engineers, but Nature staff failed to recognize it as such; thus showing themselves up (and not for the first time). His other way of getting into Nature was to insert his ‘work’ as a paid advertisement. But Nature cheated him here because it was put among the Roman-numeral pages of the magazine: these are usually torn off when libraries bind the volumes. He pulled the same stunt with New Scientist but that magazine, which has always been crackpot-friendly, put Marinov’s drivel where it would not be disturbed and thus pollutes its bound volumes for ever. Strangely enough, we agree with Ron’s opinion of Nature but for slightly different reasons. Nature, far from being the “World’s Leading Scientific Journal”, as journalists routinely call it (because it is written largely for the non-specialist and they can just about understand it), is not a journal at all; it is a science magazine. It grew out of an early magazine which was more like Fortean Times than like a serious scientific source. It has always had the relentless money-making attitude of a tabloid newspaper and will do anything to attract public attention: who can ever forget how soft it was on Uri Geller when he first appeared (the then-editor was generally soft on the paranormal). What happened to Marinov? He did the decent thing, an example which should be followed by all such no-hope cranks, and jumped to his death from the fire-escape of the library at his local university. So, all of you crackpots out there, save up for a paid advert., and make sure that you have a valid library card.

Book of Scientometrics Volume Two Updated to 30/10/16

November 1, 2016

There was the usual intense worldwide interest, which has been steady at a very high level since about 2005, indicating complete international acceptance of the ECE and ECE2 paradigm shifts. There were visits from fourteen of the world’s top twenty universities ranked by Webometrics, Times, Shanghai and QS: Berkeley*, Cornell, Penn State*, Texas A and M*, UCLA, Washington*, ETH, Cambridge*, UCL, Princeton, Columbia, MIT, Stanford and Caltech / NASA Jet Propulsion Lab. There is a clear pattern over about twelve years of study visits by staff and students from the world’s top twenty, including all the Ivy League and Oxbridge. The attached is only about 2% of the total interest, the sector I call “universities, institutes and similar”. It is very likely that a high percentage of visits from staff and students is from private computers, so I cannot identify them. So there is a vast total readership as is well known. This means that the standard physics is thoroughly obsolete.”

Our usual readers will already know well that ‘Professor’ Myron Evans is a notorious pseudoscientist whose ‘work’ is entirely ignored by real scientists; his ‘papers’ no longer appear even in the deceptive ‘predatory’ (crackpot) journals. The newcomer may nevertheless be fooled by the above lies. So let us just point out yet again that these are not the usual (i.e. genuine) scientometrics, which are based upon citations of papers that have appeared in bona fide scientific journals. His scientometrics are simply a count of the visits to the papers ‘published’ on his own websites. As he himself mentions, only 2% of the visits can be construed as denoting informed scientific interest: the remainder are from other well-known crank sites, plus sites which ‘push’ loans, tickets, gambling and pornography; i.e. they can best be termed ‘spamming sites’. Their visits to his websites are clearly random and accidental, and there is no rational reason to believe that the visits from ‘academic’ browsers are any less accidental and meaningless. In other words, his entire ‘success’ is illusory. Nobody was fooled by Volume One, so why bother with volume 2?

Why, by the way, does the ‘product description’ say that Ron is ‘Professor of Physics at York University, Toronto, and is renowned for his work in molecular dynamics and broad band spectroscopy’ and then goes on to mention a dead academic who has nothing at all to do with the … ugh …’book’?  Is this a reflection of the incompetence of the publisher, or of Amazon?
