  • Starlight, Time, and the New Physics (2008) [Updated 3 years ago]

    A novel solution to the creationist light-travel-time problem is presented. The concept requires new
    physics?Carmeli?s cosmological relativity. But that physics has been successfully shown to apply to
    the large-scale structure of the universe. In order for the new physics and Einstein?s physics to apply
    over their respective domains it is required that the universe underwent enormous expansion that
    produced massive time dilation on earth, at the center of the physical universe, at some point in the
    past. This assertion is justified by observational evidence and it is postulated that the time dilation
    occurred during the Creation week, on Day 4, resulting from the expansion of the fabric of space as
    God created the galaxies of the cosmos.


  • Proposal for a New Michelson-Morley Experiment Using a Single Whispering Spherical Mode Resonator (2002) [Updated 9 years ago]
    by John G. Hartnett   read the paper:

    A new Michelson-Morley experiment is proposed by measuring the beat frequency of two near degenerate modes with orthogonal propagation in a single spherical resonator. The unique properties of the experiment allow: 1. Substantial common mode rejection of some noise sources: 2. Simple calculation of the signal if Special Relativity is violated. We show that optimum filtering may be used to increase the signal to noise ratio, and to search for a preferred direction of the speed of light. Using this technique we show that a sensitivity limit of order 7.10^-19 is possible by integrating data over one month. We propose methods to veto systematic effects by correlating the output of more than one experiment.
