Debate Proposal on ‘Dark Matter Searches with Astroparticle Data’

Stanford/UCSC Paper on Dark Matter Triggers Debate Proposal by Astro-Cosmology Author Jerome Drexler

Jerome Drexler, who posited relativistic-baryon dark matter in his 2003 book and authored a four-volume book series about his discovery of dark matter cosmology, proposes a public debate with the authors of the April 2011 preprint paper, “Dark Matter Searches with Astroparticle Data.” Drexler proposes such a debate at Stanford University or NASA-Ames Research Center.

The 52-page preprint paper has been accepted to appear on August 18, 2011 in, “Annual Reviews of Astronomy and Astrophysics.” Prompt support for the debate should be sent to the following researchers at Stanford and UC Santa Cruz and also to: [email protected]

The debate would revolve around the nature of the dark matter of the universe and the desirability or undesirability of placing some constraints on the nature of the dark matter candidates to be researched. In the abstract of their dark matter scientific paper, they state, “A variety of observations indicate that it [dark matter] is non-baryonic and non-relativistic.”

On Page 3 the authors state, “Non-gravitational interactions between DM [dark matter] and standard model particles are highly constrained by the lack of observations of particle DM. This strongly disfavors DM that is electrically charged…” These two statements appear without supporting references, apparently were used to exclude Drexler’s dark matter conclusions, including the nature of dark matter, from their paper.

Further, the statements appear to place unjustified constraints on the nature of the dark matter candidates that could be selected by the US government for future research. There appear to be no scientific papers specifically referenced in the paper that support the two quoted statements. Drexler believes that his four-volume series of dark matter cosmology books, two astrophysical scientific papers, and numerous astro-cosmology articles published since October 2009 provide strong evidence that relativistic-baryon dark matter is the dark matter of the universe. This appears to be the case even though Drexler’s dark matter is baryonic, is relativistic in velocity prior to colliding with particles of the cosmic web where galaxies form, and is electrically charged as are all baryons.

Note that the Stanford/ UC Santa Cruz paper being questioned contains over 180 references, but no references to Drexler’s two astrophysical scientific papers published on Cornell University’s physics arXiv or to any of Drexler’s four dark matter cosmology books. The absence of Drexler’s dark matter astrophysical conclusions from the 180 references in the April 2011 paper appears to be unjustified. hyperlink to the April 2011 paper:(

Drexler proposes that the debate topic should be, “Dark matter particle candidates should or should not exclude those candidate particles that are electrically charged, or are baryons, or were moving at relativistic velocities prior to colliding with particles of the cosmic web.” The debate moderator or referee should be a mutually-agreed-upon research executive from NASA, since the US government has spent billions of dollars on dark matter research.

The idea of a dark matter debate is not new. On November 18, 2010, in Bonn, Germany, Prof. Simon White debated the existence or non-existence of Dark Matter with Prof. Pavel Kroupa.

Drexler has documented his nine years of dark matter/dark energy research, its timeline, its interaction with mainstream cosmology, and the strong evidence that relativistic-proton dark matter and relativistic-baryon dark matter represent the principal constituents of the dark matter of the universe in the following seven publications:
