"The Alternative Cosmology Group (ACG) was initiated with the
Open Letter on Cosmology
written to the scientific community and published in New Scientist,
May 22, 2004. The letter points to the fundamental problems of the Big
Bang theory, and to the unjustified limiting of cosmological funding to
work within the Big Bang framework. The epicyclic character of the theory,
piling ad-hoc hypothesis upon hypothesis, its incompleteness and the
appearance of a singularity in the big bang universe beginning require
consideration of alternatives."

"The anisotropy of the cosmic background radiation, the
existence of very large-scale structures, the cosmic anisotropy to
electromagnetic wave propagation are among many observations that
contradict Big Bang expectations. At the same time, non-Big Bang
alternatives have increasingly shown promise to coherently explain
the observations and to predict new phenomena. We believe, therefore,
that a shift in effort in cosmology to these alternatives is essential
if the field is to advance."

"Quantavolution theory maintains that the world from its
beginnings, including the world of life and humanity, has changed
largely by quantum leaps, rather than by tiny incre-ments over great
stretches of time. The over two million words of this collection of
works by the author and collaborators present the full range of
ideas and phenomena that pertain to this theory. It may be well to
warn promptly against claiming any relationship to quantum field
theory in physics, although dire consequences to gravitation concepts
may inhere, because of the seeming all-sufficiency of new electromagnetic
theory. Such a global change of perspective requires a search for new
evidence, a reformulation of old evidence, a reconsideration of anomalies,
changes in meanings of words and phrases, explora-tions of etymologies of
words and concepts, and a reexamination of assumptions, often when they
are so accepted as to be trite and so trite as to be ignored -- removed,
indeed, from our very cognitive structures.

The day may not be far off when a new philosopher will draw upon
the applicable contributions of such thinkers and the fast-growing body
of quantavolutionary literature to produce a new philosophy of science."

"Halton C. Arp received his Bachelors degree from Harvard College
in 1949 and his Ph.D. from California Institute of Technology in 1953, both
cum laude. He is a professional astronomer who, earlier in his career,
conducted Edwin Hubble's nova search in M31. He has earned the Helen B.Warner
prize, the Newcomb Cleveland award and the Alexander von Humboldt Senior
Scientist Award. For 28 years he was staff astronomer at the Mt. Palomar
and Mt. Wilson observatories. While there, he produced his well known
catalog of "Peculiar Galaxies" that are disturbed or irregular
Arp discovered, from photographs and spectra with the big telescopes,
that many pairs of quasars (quasi-stellar objects) which have extremely
high redshift z values (and are therefore thought to be receding from us
very rapidly - and thus must be located at a great distance from us) are
physically connected to galaxies that have low redshift and are known to
be relatively close by. Because of Arp's observations, the assumption that
high red shift objects have to be very far away - on which the Big Bang
theory and all of "accepted cosmology" is based - has to be fundamentally
"In 1991, my book, the Big Bang Never Happened(Vintage),
presented evidence that the Big Bang theory was contradicted by
observations and that another approach, plasma cosmology, which
hypothesized a universe without begin or end, far better explained
what we know of the cosmos. The book set off a considerable debate.
Since then, observations have only further confirmed these conclusions,
although the Big Bang remains by far the most widely accepted theory
This website provides an update on the evidence and the debate
over the Big Bang, including the latest technical review and a
reply to a widely- circulated criticism as well as a technical
reading list, a report on a recent workshop and links to other
relevant sites, including one that described my own work on fusion
power, which is closely linked to my work in cosmology.

"The Immanuel Velikovsky Encyclopedia is about the controversial
author, Immanuel Velikovsky, and the people and controversy that
has resulted from his works. It does not set out to judge whether
Velikovsky and his critics were right or wrong, but to document
with sources, who said what, and why, and where, and when. There
is no doubt that some scientists have labeled some of Velikovsky's
work, pseudoscience or worse, but also others who have acknowledged
that Velikovsky made predictions that have turned out to be
"Well into the late 1800s, people were fairly content to
think of electricity and magnetism as two different things. Today,
electric fields and magnetic fields are treated as separate entities,
when in fact that line of thinking is remnants of when electricity
and magnetism were thought to be fundamentally different.
The following is an explanation of magnetic fields from the
perspective of connected monopolar, equi-charged bodies - in other
words, equally charged electric field sources.
Electromagnetic Field Configurations and Inspections
"1) Evidence that a common cause of magnetism and gravity
is a single force, the electrostatic force due to charge polarization
inside electrons and atomic nuclei oriented by electric fields and
the angular momentum, eg, rotation, orbital movement etc. of
2) Evidence that light and all em radiation is the cumulative
effect of instantaneous forces at a distance
at least over terrestrial distances. Interpretations of Bradley's
observation of stellar aberration, Romer's observations of Jupiter's
moons, and recent NASA data are shown to allow the possibility that
light speed delay does not extrapolate beyond a second and that the
cumulative effect explanation of em radiation may apply to
astronomical distances as well."
"The Coalition for Plasma Science is a group of institutions,
organizations, and companies joining forces to increase awareness and
understanding of plasma science and its many applications and benefits
for society. We hope that by visiting this Web site you learn some new
things about plasmas in our world, in our society, and in our economy.
The plasmas of interest here are the electrically charged gases,
or "ionized" gases, that are found in nature as well as in
numerous devices. In addition to surrounding you in the universe,
plasmas play key roles in bringing you sunlight outdoors during the
daytime, street light at night, fluorescent light in your offices,
computer chips in your computers, treated and coated surfaces of more
important objects in your life than you might imagine (including hardened
artificial joints you might have in your body and high temperature turbine
blade coatings for the jets you fly in), flat panel displays for your TV,
gas lasers, the welded joints that keep buildings from falling apart, and
radio transmission around the world. Among the important applications
expected in the future are the production of electrical energy from
nuclear fusion, environmental cleanup, and space ship propulsion for
At the present time when someone encounters the term "plasma"
he or she often thinks of blood plasma; the ionized-gas type has to be
explained. The Coalition for Plasma Science is working to change this
situation. We are working to make the ionized-gas plasma the type that
is most familiar to people. If you stumbled on this site looking for
information about blood plasma, you're in the wrong place, but please
stay a while and learn something about the other type of plasma."
"There has been an ongoing search for impact sites on the surface
of the earth for as long as humanity has been aware that such events
happen. The most recent mass extinction impact event happened on the
North American continent a mere instant ago on the geologic time scale.
But, on the human time scale it is only remembered in our most ancient
of legends. Legends so old, and so often re-told they have become
discounted as fantastical myths.
Much knowledge was lost, or forgotten in the endless re-telling. The
most important of which was the form that comet "impact" sites take
here on earth. And how large clusters of comet fragments, accompanied
by tremendous electric plasma events reacted with the Earth’s atmosphere,
and geology. And in fact, the knowledge wasn’t lost. It was simply
disregarded as too fantastic to be true."
"Since the unfortunate demise of the Space Shuttle Columbia
on 1 February 2003, there has been much public debate particularly on
various internet sites and forums, over the cause of the disaster, despite
the release of the official report of the Columbia Accident Investigation
Board (CAIB) in August of 2003.
Most of this debate has centred on two main questions.
Did damage caused by a foam strike on launch cause the disaster?
Did an electical discharge event now known as "megalightning"
occur in the upper atmosphere upon reentry contributing to the demise
of the shuttle?
The suggestion of the second of these options was motivated by a curious
photograph taken by an amateur astronomer during the orbiter's reentry as
reported in the San Francisco Chronicle dated Wednesday 5 February, 2003.
It is not the intention of this paper to offer 'the truth' or a 'better
theory' than other commentators, but to compare some of the published
materials in the hope of coming to a better understanding thereof."
