Reasons to retain the article Theory of selfvariations
Hello Jitse Niesen and readers of Wikipedia,
There are a number of reasons to retain an independent article about the theory of selfvariations:
1. Parts of it have been presented (after invitation) in the XXI SEAC Conference in Astronomy (September 2013) in order to become known to a wider professional audience. The interest of the conference organizers and participants was strong, as new solutions to existing problems are always wellcome. The topics are covered in the conference's Book of Abstracts (s. Extermal links).
2. The first appearance of the Theory of selfvariations in the media was in a major greek newspapaper on 1 September 2008 (ΕΘΝΟΣ) where it was presented by this name and was favourably commented by professor Xenophon Moussas, head of the Astrophysics Laboratory of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (worldwide renown for his work on the Antikythera Mechanism). It has also appeared in a number of other newspapers.
3. A reference of the theory of selfvariations is maintained in the NASA archives, in particular in the The Smithsonian/NASA Astrophysics Data System
4. The theory is not original research since it has been approved for publishing by the chief editors of 4 different peer reviewed scientific journals. It has been checked by a total of 8 independent academic professional reviewers (standard procedure i.e. 2 for each journal), which approved its contents.
5. The theory has been presented in printed book format published by the Hellenic Physical society in 2011 (ISBN 978-960-9457-06-4).
6. The theory explains the cosmological data and agrees with all the latest cosmological meausrements (especially the increased luminosity distance of supernovae and the fluctuations of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation) (presented in detail in the published articles).Aristarchus11 (talk) 13:30, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

The article is based on published research in various refereed journals as cited in the references. The original research papers are all available on the internet. You can verify (I can help with this) that the Wikipedia article exactly reflects the published material. Please take a look. This theory is relatively new but seems very consistent.Aristarchus11 (talk) 22:49, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
