THE PROBLEMS WITH PHOTONS
Scientists claim that light is both a particle and a wave. Let's discuss the wave first.Scientists

can show you a special setup where photons pass through slits and appear toexhibit wavelike interference. Anyone who knows anything about wave interferenceknows it doesn't take a special setup with specific sized slits placed specific distancesapart to see it. It would always exhibit its nature. You wouldn't be able to read size 40font with a magnifying glass.Scientist try to determine the energy in a photon by multiplying Planck's constant bythe frequency. I have worked with electrons and ohm's law since they phased outvacumn tubes and I can tell you that frequency of a sinewave has nothing to do with itsenergy. Amplitude is all that matters, and there is nothing about amplitude in their formula. They never even speak of amplitude unless they are talking about radio waveswhich I believe are waves and not particles. From gamma to infrared, light is made uponly of photons.The energy in the photon establishes its size. The larger the photon the more energy itcontains. The socalled wavelength of light is actually the diameter of the photonsmagnetic field. Picture a beam of photons as a line of ball bearings placed in a single fileline with no space between them. Now imagine the line of bearings moving beneath adetector. The detector would see peaks and valleys. It could determine wavelength andfrequency. But that doesn't make the line of ball bearings a wave.If you haven't noticed by now, the energy of the photons would be inversely proportionto the frequency, the exact opposite of what scientists believe. They calculate the energyof photons in electron volts. Electron volts (eV) is not even an SI unit. It can not bemeasured directly, only calculated. Now that we know they got it backwards, we canforget about rediculous statements like “A gamma ray burst contains more energy inseconds than the sun will create in its lifetime.” or “The solar corona must be millions of degrees kelvin in order to produce xrays.”A photon has mass. Now I know what you must be thinking. You're probably quotingWoody Allen about now. “
Photons have mass! I didn't even know they were Catholic.
Using Einstein's famous formula E=MC

, if a photon had no mass, it would have noenergy. But why doesn't its mass reach infinity at the speed of light? The same reason anelectrons mass doesn't increase in an accelerator, even though they believe it does, andthat it is this increased mass that prevents it from reaching the speed of light. As a particle, electron, photon etc. increases in velocity, it decrease in spin.(conservation of energy). It is its magnetic field that gives it mass. As its momentum increases, its restmass (magnetic field) decreases. It is this reduction in its magnetic field that makes itless responsive to the magnetic fields of an particle accelerator.How could an electro-magnetic wave pass through a nonmagnetic insolator such asglass? Why would its wavelength change? It is not electrical in nature, but like all
