The Completely Unexpected Reason People Call Others ‘Conspiracy Theorists’
A surprising tactic against the Electric Universe is the characterization of its proponents as “conspiracy theorists.” Let us lay aside for the moment the question of the prevalence of actual “conspiracies” throughout history and in the world today. Let us explore instead, why is this accusation made specifically against proponents of the Electric Universe?
Not to long ago I ran into just this type of thinking. Here is the conversation I had about the Electric Universe.
Here is two interesting comment from Newton
Newton: I’ve not yet been able to discover the reason for these properties of gravity from phenomenal, and I do not say a hypothesis, for whatever is not deduced from the phenomena must be called a hypotheses, and hypothesis, weather, metaphysical or physical were based upon acult (hidden) qualities or mechanical. Have no place in experimental philosophy in this philosophy particular propositions are inferred from the phenomena and afterwards rendered generally by induction.
Newton 1692 : it is inconceivable that inanimate matter should without the mediation of something else, which is not material operate upon and affect other matter without mutual contact gravity should be innate inherent and essential to matter so that one body may act upon another edit distance through a vacuum now the mediation of anything else by and through which the action and coals may be conveyed from 1 to the other it is to me so great an absurdity. So great an absurdity that I believe no man who has in philosophical matters, has competent faculty would consider. Then be cause by an agent acting constantly according to certain laws but whether this agent b material or immaterial I have left to the consideration of my readers
