Astronomy is an amazing pseudo-science.

I'm sitting here watching a show with astronomers talking about the Universe. How we can only "see" 13 billion light-years, red-shifting, blue-shifting, expanding Universe, the Universe is only 13 and a half billion years old, etc., etc.

This, of course, depends on the speed of light being a constant, 186,000 miles per second.

Several weeks ago I watched a show about approaching absolute zero temperature. One of the side effects of *this* research was an experiment that demonstrated that light photons could actually be slowed by a tiny tiny blobs of molecules chilled to within a few millionths of a degree above absolute zero.

What any normal person, even a scientist, should be able to deduce from this empirical fact is that the whole concept of the speed of light is NOT a constant, and can, in fact be at least slowed by temperature. It would seem to me, that the corollary could also be true, the speed of light could be increased by some factor.

Other researchers are of the belief that the area between stars systems and galaxies is actually *at* absolute zero, due mostly to the lack of any matter.

Even *other* scientists believe that light can be bent by gravity wells.

That sort of throws out the whole concept of red-shift, blue-shift, and using light to determine much about something that's very far away. If light can be altered it can't be a very effective way to determine anything true about something that's very far away.

Not to mention, if it's taking the light hundreds or thousands of years to get here from other galaxies, we have no idea whatsoever what's going on there now. We only *know* what happened hundreds or thousands of years ago.

So, astronomers are basing most of their observations on historical data, from hundreds or thousands of years ago, using a tool, light, that is proven to be alterable by at least two known, and one deduced, factors.

Yep, pseudo-science.

I really want to get out there and find out the truth.
