Age of the Universe? Method for estimating it?

I am not an astrophysicist, but we have a Holiday Inn Express in our town.

This is a fascinating trip into the big bang and why the estimate for age of the universe we live in is 13.8 billion years since the big bang with some uncertainties before that.

Get your attention?

  1. Here, have some alternate views:

    The Big Bang Never Happened

    Not Even Wrong

    And of course:

    Short summation: Current cosmology is like the epicycloid gyrations of the pre-Copernican Earth centered universe, with dark matter being the cosmic duct tape that holds it all together. Do away with all that and make the Universe a plasma based one, and like with the Copernican Solar System the math suddenly becomes very simple. And God likes simplicity.

    Hope this helps.

    Just a thought.

  2. Sound like actual science being done.

  3. The BBC [Big Bang Cosmology] tale is one part of the effort to hide NEUTRON REPULSION – the source of energy in cores of heavy atoms and stars after WWII.

    First, let me explain. Many years ago I confronted an astrophysicists who used the Th-232/U-238 ratio in the solar system to calculate the value of 13.8 Ga years for the age of the Universe. I pointed out our elements were made in the Sun; there is no justification for assuming local values of the Th-232/U-238 ratio represent the entire universe.

    Why try to hide NEUTRON REPULSION: The force used to create, destroy and sustain atoms, lives and worlds?”

    CHAOS and FEAR of events during a NEWS blackout in Aug-Sept 1945 transformed science into a propaganda tool of frightened world leaders:

    They secretly agreed to unite nations (UN) & national academies of science (NAS) into a worldwide “Orwellian Ministry of Consensus Science (UN)Truths” to prevent public knowledge of the source of energy in cores of heavy atoms on October 24, 1945.

    But while standing in the Hiroshima ruins in August 1945, Kuroda had already realized that the same source of energy in the core of the Sun made our elements and sustains our lives, NEUTRON REPULSION:

    Thanks to Max Planck’s 1944 speech in Florence, Italy on the nature of matter, we now have assurance humanity will survive this seventy-year (1945-2015) effort to take totalitarian control of the world by combining sovereign nations into one United Nation.

    This is humanity’s assurance Big Brother, the UN, EU, and the Orwellian Ministry of Consensus Science (UN)Truths are all going down !

  4. Modern astrophysicists assumed they knew the relative rates of production of Th-232 and U-238 to be 1:1. Knowing the half lives of Th-232 and U-238 to be 14 Ga and 4.5 Ga, they calculated the age of the Universe to be 13.8 Ga from the value of the Th-232/U-238 in the solar system.

    I.e., they concluded that about half of the Th-232 has decayed away.

    In my opinion, the calculation is not worth the paper it’s written on. Neither are the “97% consensus” models of

    1. AGW: Anthropologic Global Warming
    2. SNM:</b Standard Nuclear Model
    3.
    SSM:</b Standard Solar Model
    4.
    BBC:</b Big Bang Cosmology

    They are all designed to hide reality from the public.

  5. Post-WW Space and Astro-physics in the United States was guided away from local element synthesis in the Sun to the false concept of a Big Bang and remote element synthesis by:

    1. CalTech Nobel Laureate Willie Fowler

    2. Harvard’s A.G.W. Cameron

    3. UChicago Edward Anders
    __ aka Edwuard Alperovitch

    4. WashU (St Louis) Robert Walker

    5. CalTech Crooford Prize winner, Gerry Wasserburg

    and their former students & postdocs

    Their claims were contradicted by the work of Dr. Paul Kazuo Kuroda [The nuclear geochemist at Tokyo Imperial University and the University of Arkansas who showed that the solar system formed from radioactively “hot” fallout particles (containing radioactive Al-26, I-129, Pu-244, Fe-60, etc). Kuroda secretly retained a copy of Japan’s successful atomic bomb design for fifty-seven years, 1945-2002].

    I will post links to a few of Kuroda’s papers tomorrow.

  6. Thanks for the info, guys!

    Do you know what evil profiteering crony capitalist is getting rich by manipulating public opinion on astrophysical topics? If we knew that, we could uncover the secret FTL drives and space mining for gold that will corner the market and crush world economies!

  7. A recent paper using brightness and size as metrics is not consistent with an expanding universe which undermines the methods for estimating the age. In other words, they really have no idea as even the BB hypothesis requires a period when the speed of light is substantially different…
