Physicist Stephen Crothers has demonstrated Hilbert’s derivation of the field equations is incorrect. Black hole physics violates Special Relativity, which means it also violates General Relativity. Even by the mainstreams own standards, black holes are an impossibility. SR forbids infinite point mass particles such as a black hole singularity. Further, Schwarzschild’s original paper that proposed the solution to the Mercury orbit problem, from which the black hole is supposedly derived, is regular in all of space-time. This absolutely refutes the notion of black holes. Schwarzschild’s original paper in English can be found here. Hilbert’s solution to the field equations is erroneous.
Crothers undertook a long dialog with a Dr. Christian Corda, Editor-in-Chief of The Open Astronomy Journal, who freely admits that there is no such thing as black holes, but then refuses publication of Crothers’ papers based on ideological disagreements.
It is interesting to note that black hole “non-believers” include Einstein and Schwarzschild, yet their names are continually put forth as backers of this theory. Out of respect for their positions, the use of Einstein’s and Schwarzschild’s names in conjunction with these objects should cease immediately.
Some choice Corda quotes from the dialog:
Again Steve, I suggest you change your way of proceed. I think that you are surely a talented researcher within gravitational physics, I agree with you that black-holes do not exist, but nobody will follow you if you insist to claim that not only the present community of gravitational physicists, but also the same Einstein, Schwarzschild, Hilbert, etc., i,e. the Founders Fathers of General Relativity, were wrong and the only correct person is Steve Crothers. in particular, be sure that I will NEVER follow you.
To summarize the dialog, Crothers pointed out that the equation scientists use in their formulation of black holes is wrong because it doesn’t actually give a boundary condition for the supposed edge of a black hole.
No boundary = no black hole
The equation physicists use to describe the boundary of a black hole is totally arbitrary and is an artifact of a bad equation first formulated by one David Hilbert. Crothers personal saga to see this error of physics corrected has led him into some absolutely insane confrontations. It is worth clicking his name to read all about it.
Watch Crothers explain the madness here:
Recently Stephen Hawking came out saying there is no such thing as a black hole. To quote Nature:
Most physicists foolhardy enough to write a paper claiming that “there are no black holes” — at least not in the sense we usually imagine — would probably be dismissed as cranks. But when the call to redefine these cosmic crunchers comes from Stephen Hawking, it’s worth taking notice. In a paper posted online, the physicist, based at the University of Cambridge, UK, and one of the creators of modern black-hole theory, does away with the notion of an event horizon, the invisible boundary thought to shroud every black hole, beyond which nothing, not even light, can escape.
You see, when someone like Crothers says there is no valid black hole boundary, he is written off as a crank, but if Hawking says it, well it must be true! That’s how science is supposed to work! It doesn’t matter what you can prove, it only matters who you are. You can listen to Crothers respond specifically to the new Hawking paper here.
Physicist Eric Lerner, of Lawrenceville Plasma Physics, follows up on this subject with a video of his own, where he explains why Einstein’s theory of relativity doesn’t predict that black holes should exist. Lerner cites Einstein’s own papers on the subject black holes. Most people don’t know that Einstein authored papers arguing against the existence of black holes.
For those of you who want a layman’s explanation for what is really going on, watch this:

Editor’s note: see the comments section of the original article for Dr. Corda’s response. Dr. Corda was successful in his attempt to suppress the published conversation from appearing on Vixra’s servers, so the link to the original Vixra article containing the conversation between Crothers and Corda is no longer valid.
