markjo, electromagnetism does not affect light, in case you did not know.

Light--The visible portion of the EM spectrum. 

So do you now think light can be effected by electromagnetism?

I have a rare earth magnet.  It is very strong.  And, guess what, it does not alter the light that passes near it.  I wonder why?

That is a static magnetic field.  No one is claiming that static magnetic fields affect light.  A static magnetic field is not the same thing as EM radiation.

Light is Electromagnetic Radiation, and Electromagnetic Radiation is light. The word "radiation" is the clue here.  It includes the entire EM spectrum, including radio and x-rays and gamma rays.   It doesn't have to be visible to be light.   I refer you to Maxwell's equations.

However, your magnet is made of matter and is warmer than absolute zero, so it will also emit some EM radiation far into the infrared.  The magnet emits EM Radiation not because it's a magnet, it's because it's made of matter, and matter is energy, energy produces light, and for the last time, light is EM radiation.  They're the same thing. 

The Electromagnet Accelerator is so named because it affects Electromagnetic Radiation.  AKA: light.

I don't understand what is so difficult about this.

Now, unless you're ready to stop trying to compare your refrigerator magnets with EM radiation, I'm finished with this fruitless conversation.  There's little point in continuing the discussion if you don't understand even the most basic concepts of light.

BillyBob may be right:

Et tu, Rama?  No one said that magnetic fields bend light?  That's not what the term Electromagnetic Accelerator means.

Bah!  I thought BillyBob was talking about light bending. Apologies.

I don't think that the bending in EA is caused by EM radiation. Rather the bending is due to "Dark Energy" whatever that may be.

lol, light bending is not only wrong, it is made up to make a flat earth seem real.

This is true.  Light IS EM radiation.  The Electromagnetic Accelerator is an Accelerator of Electromagnetic Radiation.  Dark Energy's a perfectly acceptable term for it as well.

How is that relevant?

Try not to get yourself banned, the upper fora is finally getting interesting again.
That's how far the horizon is, not how far you can see.

If you are unable to answer a very simple question related to the debate, perhaps you should choose a different topic?
