Maverick's Earth and Universe is about the true nature of Earth and Universe, which comes from discoveries that begin at the foundations of knowledge and which are securely anchored to the abundances of the elements and to the properties of matter and radiation. Maverick's Earth and Universe presents the science by progressing logically step-by-step so that the reader can understand, not simply believe. The author, Dr. J. Marvin Herndon, dubbed a "maverick geophysicist" by The Washington Post, refuses to march in lock-step with the consensus-driven scientific establishment. Instead, armed with a unique knowledge of the nature of science and the ways to make important discoveries, passed down through generations of master scientists, his professional life has been a step-by-step logical progression of understanding and discovery. He has uncovered deep-rooted, fundamental flaws in geophysics, astrophysics, and science management, blunders which have led scientists astray for generations. He has not only published these in world-class scientific journals, such as the Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, but, having removed logical-obstacles, has progressed far along the way toward revealing the strikingly different nature of Earth and Universe, which he now shares with people everywhere. In Maverick's Earth and Universe, the author reveals the way science should work, including a methodology more fundamental than the so-called scientific method, and describes techniques to use for making discoveries, which are not found in any textbook.
