  1. I really appreciate your guy's time and replies! To be honest, as you guys eluded to - I don't think it's possible to reason a person out of a position they unreasoning came to. As Area54 said: My main goal was to just enhance my understanding of the topics. Although I can't lie, it does make me angry that they're considering donating to these fraudulent projects such as the Electric Universe. They're actual scams and pseudoscience yet they're able to make thousands or get major investments. To be fair though, I think similar situations happen all around the world. I just hate to see people who I consider family fall for them. But as I said, I've also been wanting to learn more physics and thought it might be a great opportunity to expand my knowledge especially in regards to EM/Gravity. If you guys also have any great resources or recommendations please let me know. As I've kinda dug a lot deeper into this rabbit hole, I don't understand why proponent of EU (Electric Universe) disagree with Einstein but worship Tesla/Newton. It's also weird that people reject science in one area or for one time period.. but accept all other areas of science.
  2. I'd like to understand it personally, and be able to refute some of the claims (essentially hold my own). Although like you said, it's hard to argue someone out of irrationality. I'd say I definitely lean towards understanding it better.
  3. Hey everyone, thank you so much for your time. I'm not a physicists by any means although looking to eventually become one possibly in the future since I love science in general. I'm really new to the forums so I hope this is the correct place for this thread! Anyways, to the topic at hand. One of my family members has run down a rabbit hole of conspiracy theories and pseudoscience and does not believe gravity exists. His evidence for such an outlandish claim is a blog by a user called Zetetic Zen. Which states, "gravity is incoherent dielectric centripetal acceleration towards a null-point of counter-spatial inertia. Essentially a hybrid field modality and byproduct of electromagnetism". I know these statements are BS, and are not grounded in reality and observation. Although I was hoping for more of a scientific answer of why this doesn't make any sense. For some background I'm not too informed on EM and Dielectricity and just how it relates. Their article is incredibly dense and throws tons of terms everywhere and I don't understand it at all. I have no idea to even start on this, and hope that one of you might be able to assist me. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to link articles but here it is below: https://zeteticzen.wordpress.com/2017/06/15/gravity-does-not-exist-the-lorentz-contraction-conundrum/
