How to debunk ‘The Electric Universe’?
I am just wondering why there exists such a strong feeling within the physics community against theories such as Plasma Physics and The Electric Universe.
Every single atom is governed by electromagnetic forces, molecules are formed through chemical (electromagnetic) bonds, the universe is 99% plasma which is an great conductor of electricity, the sun is made of plasma and bombards the solar system with electromagnetic energy, centers of galaxies radiate enormous amount of electromagnetic energy, etc.
It is such a simple and elegant solution that truly explains everything in a rational way which, most importantly, can be experimentally verified. It can explain the true nature of mass and matter, gravity, how our sun works, how the universe works, weather systems, earthquakes, and many other phenomena that are mysteries to modern science.
So my question is: can someone explain to me why mainstream scientists are SO against these theories that they won't even consider them? I'm not saying they are 100% correct, but why not at least look at the theories and consider their implications?
Here are some articles I have found that explain many of the things I am talking about (no affiliation with me, I just think they well-written):
Can any real physicist explain to me why these theories could not be at least plausible? I am not trying to create controversy, but merely trying to understand why they seem so outrageous.
