paddoboy simply adheres to the evidence available which you actually have ignored and which simply is highlighted dramatically and accurately in the following data................... Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! The figure (from Weisberg and Taylor (2004)) shows the cumulative shift of periastron time for PSR 1913+16. This shows the decrease of the orbital period as the two stars spiral together. Although the measured shift is only 40 seconds over 30 years, it has been very accurately measured and agrees precisely with the predictions from Einstein's theory of General Relativity. The observation is regarded as indirect proof of the existence of gravitational waves. Indeed, the Hulse-Tayor pulsar is deemed so significant that in 1993 its discoverers were awarded the Nobel prize for their work. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! No actually, paddoboy notes that you make assumptions after assumptions starting with the fact that you  believe that professional scientists who have arrived at the conclusion of gravitational waves re the H/T system, over 40 years of research, including magnetic fields, would ignore what you are suggesting, then then assume that they dishonestly ignore the result you hypothesise, and  assume that they ignorantly went to "preconceived" gravitational waves. All from your position of unknown credentials, without any citation or support of any kind, and from the realms of a public science forum. Again please study the previous diagram and the evidence for gravitational waves, which of course has since been confirmed within any reasonable definition of a scientific theory.
