"Contrary to the scientific ideal of getting progressively closer to the truth, it looks rather like cosmology has become path-dependent: overdetermined by the implications of its past inventions." Bjørn Ekeberg
Bjørn Ekeberg is a philosopher of science and author of Metaphysical Experiments: Physics and the Invention of the Universe in which he explains how our current understanding of the universe, the Big Bang and nearly all of cosmology is based on faith rather than experimental evidence. He is an independent scholar based in Oslo, and his current research focuses on the concept of energy in biophysics.
Bjørn often contributes to Scientific American, with pieces such as 'Cosmology Has Some Big Problems', which has now been read by over 70,000 people.
