“Oppenheimer” by Christopher Nolan has been the Oscar-winning film of 2024. As everyone knows, the film is about the Manhattan project, the construction of the atomic bomb and various facets of Robert Oppenheimer's life.

A part of the story that does not appear in the film and is never usually told is the investigations that were carried out just after the Second World War. Oppenheimer organized a series of three conferences (Shelter Island, Pocono and Oldstone) that brought together the most prominent physicists of his time and which gave rise to Quantum electrodynamics (QED), considered the most important and precise scientific theory in the history of humanity.

In 2021 I published a paper on Arxiv explaining the true history of QED, showing a reality very different from what we had been told: Something is wrong in the state of QED

The paper was also published on Vixra, being the 20th most downloaded paper in its history, with almost 13,000 downloads currently. The YouTube channel SeeThePattern created a video explaining the paper in detail: Quantum Electrodynamics is rotten at the core, with 220,000 views For his part, Alexander Unzicker analyzed the paper in two videos: Forget about Quantum Electrodynamics, with 98,000 views, and Overhyped Physicists: Richard Feynman, with 221,000 views.

Despite the serious accusations raised about the validity of QED and the enormous dissemination it has had in alternative media, to date no one has been able to contradict the facts explained in the paper.

Defenders of QED argue that this is how science works, and that the paper only provides unfounded suspicions, subjective assessments and accusations without evidence.

But there is real proof of falsification, namely the calculation of the Feynman diagram IIc. This calculation was carried out by Karplus and Kroll in 1953 without the help of computers, obtaining an exact value of -3.178

Seven years after its publication, Petermann and Sommerfeld discovered that the calculation was incorrect by an order of magnitude, with the correct value being -0.564.

This calculation is still important and valid today, but Neither the original calculation nor its subsequent correction has been published to date

After an exhaustive search of all the papers published to date (The Unpublished Feynman Diagram IIc, Searching for the Feynman diagram IIc) I have come to the conclusion that both calculations were falsified. Calculations invented to match theoretical calculations with experimental data.

I am aware that this is a very serious accusation, but at the same time very easy to refute. Simply publish the original calculations and subsequent corrections, and show where Karplus and Kroll made the arithmetic errors. But this is not going to happen because all those calculations simply do not exist.

Is no one in the whole world able to repeat the calculation of this simple diagram that only consists of 5 lines? Taking into account that this is an exact analytical calculation, the calculation cannot contain approximations or depend on empirical values such as the mass of the electron. But then, what input parameters do they depend on?

Many have asked me to stop criticizing and do the calculation myself (Shut up and calculate!). I already did. It is a very simple calculation. The result is infinite. In fact all QED calculations diverge, so all results are always infinite.

The calculations can only be solved by applying the so-called “Renormalization”, a set of illegitimate mathematical techniques, as repeatedly denounced by P.A.M. Dirac: “How then do they manage with these incorrect equations? These equations lead to infinities when one tries to solve them; these infinities ought not to be there. They remove them artificially. (...) Just because the results happen to be in agreement with observations does not prove that one’s theory is correct.”

Finally you can see an interview on YouTube with Freeman Dyson himself acknowledging that Quantum Electrodynamics was a failure
