Irish Joke

“On The Gravity Of Gravity” by Alan Kelly

February 6, 2017

Dear Alan Kelly,

Thanks for the offer! I would be interested to see a copy of your book, there are some points of similarity with ECE theory, notably the presence of an aether. I am forwarding your message to the Fellows of AIAS / UPITEC for their study and comments. My address is 50 Rhyddwen Road, Craig Cefn Parc, Swansea, SA6 5RA, Wales. Which part of Ireland do you come from? I am sometime Visiting Academic of Trinity College, Dublin.”

Ooh yes, please do back this, Ron, it will be yet another nail in the coffin of your academic reputation. Just a few quibbles: a) a famous experiment, which you may have heard of, failed to detect any aether. That experiment has been repeated again and again, with increasing accuracy. It is now even just a mere ‘student experiment’ at some universities. b) the Irish-joker’s concept is not even new: Osborne Reynolds long ago postulated a ‘fluid-filled’ universe with the same end in mind (one of us has a first edition of the book on his shelves). c) Buoyancy exists only in the presence of an external gravitational field, so how can it be an ‘explanation’ for gravity.
