After writing my last post, in which a young-earth creationist expounded on their idea that the planet was once a giant nuclear reactor, I wondered what else was out there. So in the gap between one appointment & the next, I went looking. I almost wish I hadn’t…

… because I found – this:

Over the years I have thought about the relationships between sodium, magnesium, potassium and calcium and have come up with a hypothesis that magnesium, potassium and calcium are all nuclear transformations of the sodium (11) ion. This is important to understand when we consider why our blood is salted with sodium not magnesium, potassium or calcium. Even the ocean is salted with sodium for very good reasons.

The word formula for my hypothesis of nuclear transformation is as follows:

sodium (11) + hydrogen (1) magnesium (12) or,
sodium (11) + oxygen (8) potassium (19) or,
sodium (11) + hydrogen (1)+ oxygen (8) calcium or,
sodium (11) + oxygen (8) + hydrogen (1) calcium

As you can see there are many variations on how the body can transform sodium to the other alkaline elements it needs to maintain its alkaline design. Keep in mind that this transformation of elements is not a chemical reaction but a reaction, I call vibrational intelligence.

The movement of a hydrogen ion into the nucleus of a sodium ion is what gives rise to the alkaline element magnesium to help regulate body or even ocean temperature.

The movement of an oxygen ion into the nucleus of a sodium ion is what gives rise to the alkaline element potassium to help regulate the delicate alkaline pH of the extra and intracellular fluids of the body.

The movement of a hydrogen ion into the nucleus of a potassium ion is what gives rise to the alkaline element calcium. It is through the sodium ion of the blood that creates calcium to help keep our skeletal structure healthy and strong. In the ocean, it is the salt or sodium ion that gives rise to the calcium that makes the coral calcium, which helps in maintaining the alkaline design of the ocean at a pH of 8.3.

You see, nuclear transformation of sodium takes place every second of the day with any vibration or motion, such as the athlete in movement, as the body uses sodium and hydrogen to regulate the body temperature keeping it cool.

As a fail it’s even worse than this:

Production of new elements in vivo & at body temperatures, no less! Proponents of cold fusion will be rapt :) (Just to put it in context, this piece was written by Robert Young, who claims that all disease is due to the acidification of the body & that this can be cured by eating a suitably ‘alkalizing’ diet. Interestingly for someone who apparently has a medical degree, Young seems unaware that your body’s pH is maintained between very narrow limits, between pH values of 7.35 to 7.45. For example, any excess H+ ions produced as a result of normal cellular metabolism are rapidly excreted via the kidneys. You can’t change your internal pH by eating particular foods! This may sound like a silly idea, nothing more – but it does actual, terminal harm to some who believe in this schtick.)

There is one reasonably accurate statement that I could find in the piece I’ve quoted here – it’s to do with the pH of the ocean, which does indeed have a pH that’s on the alkaline side. Historically this was around 8.16, although as atmospheric CO2 levels rise more CO2 dissolves in the sea water, producing carbonic acid and thus lowering the pH. This is problematic for marine organisms with shells or skeletons based on calcium carbonate (CaCO3), because this lower pH decreases the organisms’ ability to get carbonate ions from the sea water. But as for this:

The movement of a hydrogen ion into the nucleus of a potassium ion is what gives rise to the alkaline element calcium. It is through the sodium ion of the blood that creates calcium to help keep our skeletal structure healthy and strong. In the ocean, it is the salt or sodium ion that gives rise to the calcium that makes the coral calcium, which helps in maintaining the alkaline design of the ocean at a pH of 8.3.

There is so much ‘fail’ here. I’m sure the alchemists of mediaeval times would have loved to meet with Young, but in the real world – where ‘cold fusion’ doesn’t really happen - the fusion of 2 elements to form another occurs in the hearts of stars (as Carl Sagan said, when it comes to the fine details we are all made of star stuff). Such reactions do not, can not happen in a normally-functioning human body. Quite apart from the fact that corals are not made of calcium – this is a very reactive metal & wouldn’t stay in its elemental state for very long in water. And of course it’s your diet that supplies calcium for teeth, bones, & cellular reactions – not some mystical transmutation from sodium!
