Johan Oldenkamp: Electricity and Magnetism

Johannes Kepler (1571 – 1630) discovered mathematical regularities in the planetary orbits within our solar system. In an attempt to explain these regularities, Isaac Newton (1642 – 1726) claimed that they were caused by gravity (after pondering over a fallen apple). If Newton would have understood electrodynamics, he would not have made this huge scientific misstep. Nowadays we know that the effect of so-called electromagnetism is 1036 time stronger than the gravity effect. Compared to this “electromagnetism”, gravity is completely negligible. Strangely enough, for the last three centuries, mainstream university “science” never corrected Newton’s misstep. Instead, this belief system called scientism rather invented more scientific fiction, like gravity waves, dark matter, dark energy, antimatter, black holes, spacetime curvature, and a “Big Bang”. However, just a small amount of common sense is enough to distinguish this fiction from genuine science. Let us therefore go back to the findings of Kepler, and combine them with contemporary understanding of electricity and magnetism.
