As the book continues, it teaches much about the cosmos at micro and macro levels. Electrically unbalanced and transparent ions are contrasted with electrically balanced and opaque atoms and molecules; gravity is compared with magnetism. Harmonic Origin Cosmology (HOC) is offered as an alternative to Big Bang Cosmology (BBC) but it is really a variation upon it. Magnetic Field Reversals (MFR's) are posited as a powerful mechanism to position large amounts of electrically unbalanced ions and to explain the common spiral and symmetrical attributes of galaxies. Explanations are given for sub-atomic particles like neutrons, protons, electrons, and neutrinos at the micro end and for galaxies, globular clusters, nebulas, planets, moons, comets at the macro end. Geological phenomenon such as continental drift, the origin of mountains and the origin of oceans also get turns for explanations. Theologies of redemption and Christian missions are added to the mix.Read more ›
However, even just minoring in physical science in college gave me enough to see that Richardson is overreaching himself. I found that in the subjects I have only cursory knowledge, like the sequence of the Big Bang, his critiques seemed very valid to me and his alternative theories reasonable, e.g., the charge parity violation does seem to be a problem that his "neutron bubbles beginning" seems to solve. However, in the areas where I have done a little more study, I found serious flaws. For instance, his critique of the theory of gravity and models on the expansion of the universe show he is assuming three-dimensional linear space, when the premise of the theories he is critiquing is that three-dimensional space curves along another dimension we cannot perceive. In fact, his objection that the "bowling ball in the trampoline" illustration is obviously wrong because satellites orbit along the equator and not above it shows he doesn't understand the illustration at all.
Likewise, since I have studied geology, his flood chapter seems very uninformed. He keeps referencing the antiquated "continental drift" as if he's never heard of plate tectonics, so he simply brushes aside the evidence for it like hot spots, fault lines, etc.Read more ›
