Going through his stuff I found the huge assumption about body mass. It is such a massive assumption it's laughable, and his claims are all based around it. On top of that, he does not understand physics in the least or understand where they came from. He accepts them as gospel, and they simply are not. You simply cannot take body mass and translate that into some general equation for kinetic energy. There are some solid calculations in there, but to get to his conclusions takes highly questionable assumptions. I believe he also says Barry Bonds was only 20 pounds. Bull. It was more like 40 or more.
It's just horribly flawed from a physics standpoint, plain and simple.
