The LIGO-Virgo Scientific Collaboration has announced that on 14 September 2015, LIGO detected an Einstein gravitational wave directly for the first time, with the first concomitant observation of a binary black hole merger. The announcement was made with much media attention. Not so long ago similar media excitement surrounded the announcement by the BICEP-2 Team of detection of primordial gravitational waves imprinted in B-mode polarizations of a Cosmic Microwave Background, which proved to be naught. According to the LIGO-Virgo Collaboration, the gravitational wave LIGO allegedly detected was generated by two merging black holes, one of ~29 solar masses, the other of ~36 solar masses, at a distance of some 1.3 billion light years. The insurmountable problem for the credibility of LIGO’s claims is the invalidity of the theoretical assumptions upon which they are based. There are two ways by which the LIGO report can be analyzed: (a) examination of the LIGO interferometer operation and data acquisition, and (b) consideration of the theories of black holes and gravitational waves upon which all else relies. Only theoretical considerations are considered in this presentation because there is no need to analyze the LIGO apparatus and its alleged signal data to understand that the claim for detection of Einstein gravitational waves and black holes is built upon theoretical fallacies and conformation bias. The instrumental aberration reported by the LIGO-Virgo Collaboration is not related to Einstein gravitational waves or to the collision and merger of black holes.

Stephen Crothers is a preeminent mathematician, counted among the most competent critics of modern cosmology, including both the General Theory of Relativity and popular theory of the Big Bang. He has also gained much attention for his systematic unraveling of standard Black Hole theory, showing that the mathematical model of a Black Hole follows neither from observation nor from any logical reasoning from Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity. He gave two talks at the conference.
