The Great 21st Century Scientific Watergate

Recently — earlier here in March 2008 — I tried to get the attention of the scientific community to the continuing totalitarian-like suppression of my disproof of the big bang by submitting the following letter to the Editor of America Physical Society News. He kindly informed me that my letter would not be published because APS News was not the right venue for dealing with my ongoing censorship issues. So I am posting that letter below.—Robert Gentry.

Unpublished Letter to APS News

The Big Bang, Physicists, and Free Scientific Inquiry

Paul Carr's discussion of the big bang in the December APS News reminds us that, despite being widely accepted, the big bang is still a hypothesis because no one was here to observe it. He then adds that perhaps other hypotheses may yet be discovered that could predict the 2.7K Cosmic Blackbody Radiation. Let us suppose for a moment that such a potential discovery were made, which also included discovery of a major flaw in the big bang and a new cosmic model to replace it. What then? In the spirit of free inquiry would it not be expected that all physicists would support these discoveries being quickly brought to the center of scientific attention for discussion, irrespective of consequences? I suggest the answer should be, yes. But in my case it didn't happen. Instead a small but powerful group of physicists has worked to suppress the release of these discoveries for seven years.

Concerning them, on February 28, 2001 I submitted ten papers to the LANL arXiv, which immediately received numbers physics/0102092-0102101; these were an update of my paper in Modern Physics Letters A 12, 1919 (1997). In them I proposed a new explanation of the Hubble redshift relation and the 2.7K CBR using vacuum energy repulsion embedded within a comic model with a nearby universal center, along with documenting that I had not only found, amazingly enough, that big bang's fundamental spacetime expansion assumption had never before been tested, but also discovered a way to test it and in so doing determined that neither expansion nor expansion redshifts ever existed, and hence that the big bang has always been a huge myth. However, the physics community has never seen these papers because, just prior to their release, one of Paul Ginsparg's arXiv associates noticed my papers' main title, Flaws in the Big Bang Point to GENESIS, a New Millennium Model of the Cosmos, and immediately deleted all of them. Then when I submitted my papers a second time on March 5, 2001, and after again receiving arXiv numbers, they were again deleted and on this occasion my password was also deleted, making it impossible thereafter to post results. News of Paul Ginsparg's and Cornell's ongoing and collaborative censorship of these results has been widely reported in Nature (420, 597(2002); 428, 488 (2004) and 432, 428 (2004)). Moreover, during the past seven years I have several times called APS members' attention to this situation through contributed papers presented at the annual April APS meetings. Thus far neither the physics community, nor the general scientific community, nor the media, nor members of Congress, have shown any interest in exposing what may well be one of the greatest examples of censorship in the history of science, and this continues even when it is known that the Cornell arXiv is significantly supported by taxpayer funds. My ten papers, plus details about the ongoing censorship by Cornell can be accessed at
