Christopher Booker would certainly have been honored with inclusion in our Encyclopedia if he hadn’t been British, but he is so he won’t. Then there is the case of James Bopp, the guy behind the suggested St. Reagan GOP purity test (that St. Reagan would have failed with flying colors), and the attempt to get the Democratic Party renamed ”the Democratic Socialist Party”; but neither instance is clearly ”loon” rather than ”zealous douche”.
Well, enter arch-crackpot Xavier Borg, or ”Engineer Xavier Borg” as he likes to call himself. To be honest, I have no real idea whether Xavier Borg is American, and I don't have a picture, but he is nevertheless well worth covering. Engineer Xavier Borg is out to revolutionize physics with his own, entirely original idea based on the notion that everything is orbiting around a fixed center of the universe, the “Kolob”. In the course of developing his ideas, Borg reinvents practically everything else in physics to make it fit (rejecting matter in favor of “standing electromagnetic waves”), peppers it all with complex equations while simultaneously notoriously failing to provide a mathematical foundation for his basic notions and mechanisms. You can see a respectful but fair critique here (also here).
Borg has plenty of abstracts and papers online. Needless to say none have been published in serious journals. He also appears to run something called the “blazelabs.com”, and appears to be relatively frequently cited by other authors with their own crackpot versions of physics to push.
