Electric Universe: Whither the Electric Currents?
There was a recent thread on the Thunderbolts forum that raised the question which I have repeatedly asked of EU theorists or their supporters and generally received no real response. That question is
Thunderbolts Forum: …Where does the juice come from?
That is, what drives the electric currents for powering the Electric Universe cosmology?
What drives the particle motion that makes the charge separation possible? Particles do not move without having energy, and that energy must come from somewhere.
Irrelevant - there is no way to know
Yet the question of where the power comes from is definitely relevant to a physical theory. This poster proposes a physical effect that is beyond analysis by science. This is indistinguishable from creationists' claims of supernatural origin.
Attempts by crank science supporters to get their material mentioned in peer-review science literature should really be thought of as a con, an attempt to fool legitimate researchers into giving undeserved credit to cranks.
This is similar to the issue that debating creationists give more status to the creationist than they would otherwise be able to earn on their own

While that is true. It is somewhat misleading, I am sure that Creationists and many other people agree on a lot of things! [The EU's version of global catastrophe is secular with the agents of disaster being celestial bodies interacting electromagnetically with the Earth and dating methods are recognized as being wrong because they are based on incorrect assumptions.]Lloyd wrote:Re Creationism vs. EU
* EU proponents and creationists have at least 2 things in common. Both contend that conventional dating methods are extremely unreliable. Both contend that there have been global cataclysms in ancient times.

It permeates universe and enables memory.
