Petition Against Censorship

Whether or not you agree with Eric J. Lerner’s scientific ideas is not the subject of this petition.

The real concern here is that the very spirit of scientific research is being muzzled. Many researchers are now blacklisted by the arXiv, even though they have already repeatedly published their work in respectable peer-reviewed scientific journals. The arXiv, which started as an open preprint server, has now become a kind of private postprint club.

On this mailing list, I know that some scientists are unfortunately already on this black list. Maybe there are others here too. But elsewhere, I know of many others.

What do all these physicists and astrophysicists have in common?

They chose to have developed theories that are not aligned with the current scientific doxa. Those in power forgot that if we elaborate theoretical models, we should never be so naive as to believe them blindly.

If you are a scientist and victim of such censorship, you should sign the petition. If you are a scientist not victim of such censorship, you should sign it anyway because the freedom of thought and the right to debate ideas without dogma is priceless and should not go gentle into the night.

The Enlightenment of Science should not be extinguished without a fight!

We’re soliciting additional signatures for the petition below, initially signed by two dozen astronomers and physicists. For background on this subject, see press releases here and here, a video for broad audiences here and the papers themselves here.

Also, we are actively seeking media coverage, so please share this petition with any science journalist you know who might be interested.

A Petition Against Censorship

Petition to arXiv Scientific Director Steinn Sigurdsson and Head of Content Jim Entwood from Astronomers, Astrophysicists, Cosmologists, Space Scientists, High Energy Physicists and Plasma Physicists

As scientists engaged in the study of the cosmos and the relation of phenomena in space to those here on Earth, we strongly protest arXiv’s censorship of controversial papers on cosmology and specifically on the Big Bang hypothesis.

Run by Cornell University, arXiv is supposed to provide an open public forum for researchers to exchange pre-publication papers, without undertaking to peer-review them.

However, during June, 2022, arXiv rejected for publication three papers by Dr. Riccardo Scarpa, Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias, and Eric J. Lerner, LPPFusion, Inc. which are critical of the validity of the Big Bang hypothesis:

“Will LCDM cosmology survive the James Webb Space Telescope?”

“Observations of Large-Scale Structures Contradict the Predictions of the Big Bang Hypothesis But Confirm Plasma Theory”,

and …

“The Big Bang Never Happened—A Reassessment of the Galactic Origin of Light Elements (GOLE) Hypothesis and its Implications”.

No specific reason was given for these rejections, which was done by form letters stating that the papers lacked “sufficient original or substantive scholarly research,” needed “revision,” and were “not of interest to arXiv.”

Without judging the scientific validity of the papers, it is clear to us that these papers are both original and substantive and are of interest to all those concerned with the current crisis in cosmology. It plainly appears that arXiv has refused publication to these papers only because of their conclusions, which both provide specific predictions relevant to forthcoming observations and challenge LCDM cosmology. Such censorship is anathema to scientific discourse and to the possibility of scientific advance.

We strongly urge that arXiv maintain its long-standing practice of being an “open-access archive” of non-peer reviewed “scholarly articles” and not violate that worthy practice by imposing any censorship. Instead, we encourage arXiv to abide by its own principles, and publish these three papers and others like them that clearly provide “sufficient original or substantive scholarly research” results and are of obvious great interest to the arXiv audience.
