'''Bill Gaede''' is a [[YouFailPhysicsForever crank scientist]] who believes that light is neither a wave nor a particle, but a double helix. Because of this he made some amusing videos on [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSJjs4l_FHU youtube]] and an [[http://www.youstupidrelativist.com/ amusing site]] full of rant and Photoshop images. He also wrote a book called "Why god doesn't exist" because his initial plan was to explain this using physics before it became an alternative physics book.

'''Bill Gaede''' is a [[YouFailPhysicsForever crank scientist]] who believes that light is neither a wave nor a particle, but a double helix.
Because of this he made some amusing videos on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSJjs4l_FHU youtube]] and an [[http://www.youstupidrelativist.com/ amusing site]] full of rant and Photoshop images. He also wrote a book called "Why god doesn't exist" because his initial plan was to explain this using physics before it became an alternative physics book.

Due to certain [[YouKeepUsingThatWord issues]], he dismisses Albert Einstein's relativity theory, quantum physics and a host of other theories. To him, objects are 3D, space non-dimensional (as objects are already 3D) and time a number line, just like one would number frames in a movie file.

Why it has to be a double helix and not a single helix or a (SureLetsGoWithThat) triple helix is not clear. It's also pretty unclear why every atom needs to have two threads for every other atom in the universe and how a light signal is sent, but is clear that the pitch of the helix is the same as the wavelength of a photon.

Since light is like a thread and electrons are known to absorb light, everything is supposed to made of electro-magnetic threads. The electron shell then looks like a ball of yarn with a nucleus in its center, which is connected to the electron shell with yet again, threads.
This makes the atom look more like a plasma lamp instead of a cloud of random surrounding a couple of billiard balls. But since the threads connecting the nucleus and shell are for whatever reason straight lines, perhaps a better example is thinking of a bicycle wheel as a cross-cut.

Since the universe is all thread, gravity is explained as a tension. Gaede has not provided an explanation for the eccentricity of planets as of yet. Magnetism is explained by the helices loosening up, playing jump-rope and clashing against each other. Photon emission is explained by a mechanism called pumping, inflating and deflating the shell. How and why objects become (un)obstructive is still a big mystery to this theory.

Gaede also [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt believes that the human species will die out soon]], that all significant inventions have already been invented, homosexuals have more counter-clockwise helices in their brains than heterosexuals. and is 100% certain that the existence of any god is irrational.

He has a son, Eric Gaede, who also got some fame for his web videos, most of all ''WebVideo/ReviewingAReviewer''.

!!Tropes of his website, book and Website/YouTube videos include:

* DeadpanSnarker
* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt due to an overturned population pyramid.
* MadScientist: Or, in this case, all "mad" and virtually none of the "scientist".
* RunningGag: What's this black stuff?
* SarcasticConfession: Somewhere on his website Stephen Hawking is torturing him in order to convince him that forces exist.
* SidetrackedByTheAnalogy: Gaede falls victim to this constantly. For one, he thinks the "rubber mat" analogy of space-time is to be taken ''literally''.
* SurroundedByIdiots
* YouKeepUsingThatWord: What half of his site is about.
