Attraction of Gravitation.
Facts incontrovertible prove natural
science false from its foundation; rather
a sweeping denunciation in the face of a
Galileo, Ilerschell, Newton, Kant and
Laplace. During my curriculum s natu
ral incredulity caused me to serutinise
all theories in the various branches of
Science; whose emptiness in astronomy,
lead me to that first great cause least un
derstood. One of the fundamental facts
we shall here set forth which will in no
wise disturb the Planets in their respec
tive orbits, but illustrate the fate that
befell the builders of the Tower of BabeL
That such a power as that of Attraction
of Gravitation extending to the utmost
vistas of space we deny. That law of
nature eternal, and Immutable fixes that
all powers known to terrestial space
and on suppoetion in comical space,
are limited and neutralized by time,
distance, friction and weight, solves
the problem; the discharge of a cannon
illustrates power in relation to that law,
as also the diferenee between the
energies of light, and sound, Newton
threw a stone in the air it fell back to
the earth from whence it was propelled;
as the world is round, he inferred the
stone should have gone on through infi
nite space, he also inferred an attraction
called Terrestlal emanated from the cir
enmference of the globe which drew me
deorie stones from the nebule, kept the
moon out of danger, the same eolloseal
power emanating from, and counteram
ting the heavenly bodies, so as all to re
tain their relative positions; Honors and
jewels were poured on the great astrono
mer, and mistake. The difference be
tween the specific gravity or weight of
the stone and the air explains the Phe
nomenon attraction bad nothing to do
with it, the earth from where the stone
was thrown was not ronnd and the size
of a marble as would be required by his
inference. If such a power as attrae
tion of gravitation was in existence; in
its vortex on the surface of the globe, all
life would be extinet, all cities resolve
into dust Preses Garde.
