My pal Rick Stokes, editor of the Anomalist website, was perhaps the first guy to explain to me the notion of “the electric universe” in response to several articles I’ve posted here in past Gralien Report blogs having to do with hexagonal and other geometric anomalies that tend to occur in deep space. Since then, I’ve frequented sites like, which feature very intriguing articles that discuss this unique perspective of the cosmos, and even to some degree, various phenomenology.

Earlier this year on March 16 Dr. Donald E. Scott, editor of the aforementioned website, gave a presentation of electric universe concepts to a gathering at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. This lecture appeared to be well-received by many of the attendees, although this turned out not to be entirely the case. After the presentation, Dr. Tom Bridgman, a renowned skeptic and science writer, offered a critique of Scott’s book, The Electric Sky, which resulted in a 48 page document Scott in retrospect calls “most outrageously inaccurate, and uninformed.”

In an excerpt from his rebuttal, Scott states, “When I first heard about Dr. Tom Bridgman’s 48-page onslaught against me and the material I present in my book, The Electric Sky (TES), I thought I would simply ignore him. But friends I admire and trust have repeatedly implored me to take up my pen so that the casual reader of his criticisms will not assume I accept them.” Having been very much in this situation myself (with regard to research that L.E.M.U.R., a group of which I am a member, have performed at Brown Mountain, NC, over the last decade), I thought I would link to Dr. Scott’s rebuttal and help give his views a bit of honest exposure.
