This development is ironically related to YEC, but first the article:
This was reported in a magazine of a respected association, the IEEE:
Scientists in the U.S. and Japan Get Serious About Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions
It’s absolutely, definitely, seriously not cold fusion
It’s been a big year for low-energy nuclear reactions. LENRs, as they’re known, are a fringe research topic that some physicists think could explain the results of an infamous experiment nearly 30 years ago that formed the basis for the idea of cold fusion. That idea didn’t hold up, and only a handful of researchers around the world have continued trying to understand the mysterious nature of the inconsistent, heat-generating reactions that had spurred those claims.
Nucleosynthesis and nuclear transformations can contribute to the profile of isotopes in various objects.
There is 70 times more uranium on the continents than on the ocean floor. Radio isotope profiles also show an mysterious absence of radio activity on the ocean floor vs. the continents. This is also suggestive that there might not be very much radio active material inside the Earth as postulated. We don’t know!
In 2011 I did a term paper for one of my physics classes on chemical and electrical means of nuclear transmutation and synthesis and neutron generation. I was astounded at the number of experiments and observations that had been conducted starting with Neutron detections from lightning strikes reported in the prestigious scientific journal nature in the 1980’s…
The goal of some of the research is to create feasible energy sources, but as far as YEC is concerned, net energy generation is not the issue, the issue is whether there are nuclear transformation mechanisms that are electrical or chemical.
One YEC theory is piezo electric influence associated with the flood cataclysm.
This video details some one of the YEC theories of radiation which I find a lot less outrageous than all the multiverse advocacy I’m seeing of late:
If this is correct, or close to correct, this could account for some of the supposed long ages of the non biological content of rocks.
