One of the follies of 20th century astronomy and physics was a belief that the solar system was created from an accretion disk of matter left over from previous solar explosions which aggregated into planets over time as the sun formed.
But more recent theories point to a clear and more obvious notion that planets are formed by fission. That is, they are spit out of the sun at various intervals. (In fact the distnace between planets suggest a clear scale of time by strangely uniform progression of distance.)
Evidence of fission is presented in recent discoveries of planets around nearer stars. The planets are usually huge gas giants (bigger than Jupiter), and so near to their suns to be incredible if it was an accretion disk formed by gravity (since the giant sun's gravity should have sucked all the nearer matter into itself).
Here is an article on a more recent discovery that may be disputed due to the methods of gathering data.
Some theorists claim that the Moon is a product of fission from the Earth, and the Pacific Ocean basin is a proof and artifact of that; and the resulting hail of meteors is something we continue to suffer from (the Moon showing the effects much more).
I urge thoughtful people to keep an open mind about the universe and how it operates. We are finally beginning to get more and more evidence that contrary and divergent theorists may be closer to the truth than so many hidebound followers of academic fashion.
Too many 20th century theorists believed that nature could not be represented logically in terms of image or idea. This was a gross fallucy -- the idea that reason made no objective sense.
If you cannot rationally imagine reality from the macro to the micro, you cannot really know it. All that is, except God, can be imagined, conceptualized, and drawn into a shape. Mathematics is not the only language of physics. Logic and image are equally useful, and if they fail, then physics has failed to be true. posted by Mark Butterworth | 10:36 PM |
