The CRACKPOT Page
Dedicated to all the Flat Earthers, Circle Squarers, Angle Trisecters,
Cube Halvers, Perpetual Motion Mechanics, UFO and Elvis sighters, and
all the other true believers who adamantly refuse to accept
mathematical or physical proof that their convictions are untenable.

- Unsolicited mail from David de Hilster,
President of the SAA.
A must-read: 80 Web Pages of self-delusion, quite well-done actually.
- More unsolicited mail from Jeong M. H.,
a non-scientist who thinks that we may have overlooked something obvious
for the past 90 years.
- Even more unsolicited mail from Bahram Katirai,
who claims that Einstein was a fraud and the ether exists.
- Still more unsolicited mail from Robert Lavelle
whose note is indescribable, or maybe just babble. You have
probably received this yourself, since 98% of the planet is on his
email list. Before you send flames, make sure you
have the right Robert Lavelle.

the reader must be ready to abandon the well-known relativistic
equations of the theory of relativity for mass and electric
charge ... and to accept the totally new relativistic equations.
Both the gravitational mass mg and inertial mass mi of a particle
decrease as its velocity v increases. Electric charge e of a
particle decreases as its velocity v increases."

Unified Field Force, 1991
- "Howdy partner!" (p1)
- "My studies lead me to my theory of the force of gravity as
the long wave, low frequency, radio wave." (p2)
- "I do not have a formal education and am self taught." (p3)
- "The neutrino is massless but must contain a charge...
Neutrinos from muons and electrons seem to be identical." (p36)
- "I also belive that stars are formed from that part of a
nebula which possesses ferrous metals." (p48)
- "My theory of gravity as magnetic attraction will not allow
a 'Black Hole'." (p58)
- "If there are no black holes, there was no 'Big Bang' with a
singularity at the beginning." (p59)
- "The neutrino is what we would call the 'graviton'" (p60)
- Kenneth G. Salem - The New Gravity, 1994
- "In this book, THE NEW GRAVITY, I will put forward evidence
that some Outside Force is eternally driving each and every
particle in the universe, thereby causing them to constantly
accelerate at a rate of 2.8 Angstroms per second per second,
creating a counter force we know as gravity" (p1)
- "In other words, it is only logical to suspect
that before switches are pulled, or buttons are pushed to
activate a light source, that the light source
itself... must already had been in motion, moving
along with the Earth at 186,282 miles per second, and that
the unaccelerated propagation of its beam of light at
its one and only speed of 186,262 mps is simply a direct
consquence of its present basic velocity through space in
the first place." (p73)
- "The nucleus would therefore be the complete atom; and the
total empty space in an atom should amount to not more than
possibly two parts space to one part solid." (p144)
