I think you should have posted a link instead of all that copyrighted text, even if you did have permission.

And, if you didn't have permission, I think you should review the FAQ (http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/faq.php), particulary:


Do not post copyrighted material here. It is within the law to post small, relevant quotes, but not whole passages from newspapers, magazines, books, etc. If you do, the post will be deleted, and you will be warned.

Also note that anything written, drawn, composed, painted etc in any medium of expression including electronic must be considered copyright unless it is explicitly stated that it is placed in the public domain. There is no need for an author to register copyright and no requirement to place a copyright notice on a work. Copyright automatically exists when a work is created, published or not.

Registering copyright merely gives greater rights to collect damages in a civil action as it then presumes infringement from the time the infringement began instead of when the infringer was notified.

Besides, I went cross-eyed after reading a bit ... it took awhile for it to wear off. Ouch. A link in "Against the Mainstream" with appropriate sanity warnings would have been appropriate.

As others have pointed out, do not post copyrighted material here. That is a serious violation of the FAQ.

I decided to actually try reading that dreck. BLECCH. What does it have to do with science?

...photon belt...

Isn't that what an astronomer uses to keep their pants up?

[ducks and runs for cover]

Seriously (if that word can be used in this context), this is one more volunteer for Crew Woo^2..."manasic radiation"...whazzat? And how is its benevolence supposed to affect our poor protoplasm?...oh, here it is...

Supposedly there are other 'chapters' to this book, but the others are "Not Found" (http://www.ebookebiz.com/home/book2_chapter6.html)

"...Briefly, the Photon Belt is the doorway to a higher consciousness and a new and higher dimension....The manasic radiation consists of the rays of emanation of the Christ Consciousness which is bombarding us now...It is the Second Coming of the Christ..."

Ah hah...invisible, undetectable, unmeasurable, but sho'nuff exists and is gonna change us all into gawd's chillun...uh huh...suuuuuuuuuuuuure it is...this thread is more appropriate in Against The Mainstream, I do believe.

That background colour alone should be a banning offence :o

Do these folk think we are all colourblind?

First came across this beast in one of David Icke's books. :roll:
You can even download a photon belt simulator on this page, though I have no intention of running an executable on my machine written by these folks. (If you do, you do it at your own risk...)

I've considered writing a debunking of this, but it's never been big enough to bother with. Plus, weirdly, the very first site returned by google (http://www.salemctr.com/photon.html) when entering "photon belt" has a link to a debunking that's pretty good.

Just be grateful it wasn't magenta or lime-green or royal purple! Say, why do woo-woo sites always have such awful color-sense?
:D

Maybe there's a genetic link, a predilection for horrid color schemes and wacky theories?

Well, I'd say it goes hand in hand with non sense. Interesting how close nonsense is to nonscience.

It must be related to their tendency to write letters using green or purple ink. (Tip to someone writing to a scientist. Use black or blue ink if you don't want it to be transferred immediately to the discard pile. ;) )

We discussed this some time ago (http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=700&highlight=#700).

Is this the Nexus from Star Trek: Generations? ;)

Note to author: It's Yellow on Black - yellow foreground on black background that's supposed to be the best contrast. Not the other way 'round. Please don't make me lose more cells in my eye - it's bad enough that I'm losing braincells reading your junk. Just stop with the bad color schemes! :roll: #-o

"manasic radiation"...whazzat?

Not sure, but I notice "manasic" anagrams nicely into maniacs. :)

Edit:
From this site: http://www.ebookebiz.com/home/book2_chapter6.html

"The manasic radiation consists of the rays of emanation of the Christ Consciousness which is bombarding us now."

Short quote like this is ok, right?

Yes, it is fine. Under the Fair Use Doctrine you may quote in that manner for the purpose of criticism. You may also quote or other wise use material in a parody all you like.
