Need to make tenure, trying to impress Dean that your department doesn't just sit around sipping cappuccino and looking at high quality streaming internet porn all day long, etc. etc. etc.
Somebody should build an online generator for random junk science astrophysics releases ... "ANTI-QUARK MAY SUCK ON PLUTO WITHIN NEXT TEN YEARS," "MARS FIRES BLAST OF METHANE FROM URANUS," "COSMIC ANOMALY CREATES DARK MATTER STREAM INTO NEBULA ZERO."
I could probably write one of these in ten minutes if I had a web server set up.
P.S. Notice how with modern scienmajists, the less evidence and observable facts you have to support your hypothesis, the more likely it is true. This is the exact opposite of science. The fact that the "giant black hole" at the galactic center exhibits no evidence it is there (it's a patch of space that looks like any other) proves it is a particularly big and powerful black hole. You couldn't make this stuff up. It's like an incredible Lewis Carroll story and Carroll smoked dope to write a lot of his stuff. Tex Arcane has a powerful and revolutionary theory of his own to offer ... the reason we don't see anything unusual at all through a telescope when we look in this direction is that there isn't anything there. I should have a lock on the Nobel this year.
