All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident: Arthur Schopenhauer -- In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual: Galileo Galilei -- Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it: Albert Einstein -- When you have eliminated the impossible, what ever remains, however improbable must be the truth: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle -- We all agree that your theory is crazy, but is it crazy enough? Niels Bohr -- Whenever a true theory appears, it will be its own evidence. Its test is that it will explain all phenomena: Ralph Waldo Emerson -- Since the mathematicians invaded Relativity, I do not understand it myself anymore: Albert Einstein -- I would say that the aether is a medium invented by man for the purpose of propagating his misconceptions from one place to another: W.F.G. Swann: -- Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone: Albert Einstein -- Physics is mathematical not because we know so much about the physical world, but because we know so little: Bertrand Russell -- If I could explain it to the average person, I would not have been worth the Nobel Prize: R. P. Feynman -- I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use: Galileo Galilei -- How dare we speak of the laws of chance? Is not chance the antithesis of all law?: Bertrand Russell -- Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I´m not sure about the former: Albert Einstein -- The glory of mathematics is that you don't have to say what you are talking about: Richard Feynman -- Anything is possible if you don´t know what you are talking about: Author Unknown -- In life, everything is relative - except Einstein´s theory: Leonid S. Sukhorukov -- Don´\'t worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you´ll have to ram them down people´s throats: Howard Aiken --A day will come undoubtedly when the ether will be discarded as useless: H. Poincaré -- First they tell you you´re wrong and they can prove it; then they tell you you´re right but it isn´t important; then they tell you it´s important but they knew it all along: Charles Kettering -- It is not once nor twice but times without number that the same ideas make their appearance in the world: Aristotle -- The opposite of a true statement is a false statement. The opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth: Niels Bohr -- A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it: Max Planck -- Euclid taught me that without assumptions there is no proof. Therefore, in any argument, examine the assumptions: Eric Temple Bell -- Half this game is ninety percent mental: Yogi Berra

Van Flandern's Fission-Explosion Model

solar fission, exploded planets, twin planets, Le Sage gravity, Fulton Gap


A detailed summary of Van Flandern's theory of planetary formation is presented. The theory proposes planets split in pairs from equatorial bulges of an overspinning and contracting Sun, which explains the similarities between Venus and Earth and between Uranus and Neptune. Mars and Mercury are former moons, the former of Bellatrix, the latter of Venus. It also proposes explosions of 6 liquid planets, 4 of which had moons, some of which exploded also, because of tidal stresses, with subsequent collisions causing the asteroid belts. The explosions are supported by some 100 points of evidence. Collisions between planets are considered too improbable as there is too much space between them. Moons are said to originate also from fission, singly from solid planets and in pairs from giant planets. The energy for the explosions is proposed to come from Le Sage gravity. Objections to this theory of gravity are all refuted. Comets are considered as being the result of an explosion so there is no Oort Cloud. The model is the only one that explains the twinning of planets (and moons), but it also readily explains circular and co-planar orbits, distribution of angular momentum, and the anomalies of Mercury and Mars. It is also confirmed by exoplanetary evidence (especially the Fulton Gap, the finding that planets are more massive than the disk they're supposed to form from, and the young age of HL Tauri ), which further discredits the planetisimal hypothesis.
