Stefon Bristol & Fredrica Bailey Time Travel/STEM Comments Earn Debate Challenge via Marshall Barnes

After Marshall Barnes saw comments, in various media, from director Stefon Bristol and Fredrica Bailey about the research they did on time travel and the importance of STEM in their new film, See You Yesterday, Marshall is taking action against them.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - May 29, 2019 - PRLog -- Internationally noted R&D engineer, time researcher and nationally recognized STEM promoter, Marshall Barnes, has been an strident activist for accuracy in time travel sci-fi, first erupting in the conflict between he and co-producer/show runner, Shawn Ryan, for NBC's Timeless and then actor Malcolm Barrett, from the same show - a conflict which Marshall won by accurately predicting that it would steadily lose audience numbers and get canceled, because of its bad handling of time travel. Now, it has turned to the fledgling director, Stefon Bristol and writer, Fredrica Bailey, for the new Spike Lee produced movie on Netflix, See You Yesterday. This time, it is statements that the two have made about how seriously they took the time travel research for the film and the importance of how they wanted to promote STEM in it, that has gone as far a stoking Marshall's anger to challenge them both to a public debate. Marshall's point is that they got everything about the time travel details wrong and the film has blatant errors in the science, all and all leaving the very same young people - that the Bristol and Bailey claim they're trying influence, to learn things all wrong.

"Look," Marshall began, "these two have zero background in STEM, physics or time travel. They've got these kids in this flick, whom they claim are supposed to be geniuses, talking about making electrons go twice the speed of light, which is ridiculous. But I tell you what - there will be unsuspecting children that will see that and believe it's possible and other kids that know better, laughing at this flick and all the people supporting it."

Marshall points out that he has actually worked with the types of students that Bristol and Bailey claim they want to inspire and their efforts will actually undermine the kinds of real life, hands-on efforts that he has done in the past. Quite frankly, he's not having it.

"I've got a start-up I'm trying to run, in fact, right now, I'm trying to launch a new division that will focus on AI and robotics, and I'm now having to plan out a counter-measure effort to this pathetic effort in STEM and time travel sci-fi. So I'm doing 2 things. First, I already have the counter-measure named - See You Yesterday 20/20 Hindsight: The correct science from that seen in the Spike Lee Production. The program will be interactive and cover each of the points that are wrong in the film. There will be a section on wormholes and students will participate in a version of my breakthrough experiments which not only demonstrate that parallel universes exist but that some actually could be described as time splices as in the film, although the film does it all wrong. They will see laser hits appear without cause because all of us will be in a new universe copy, separate from the one from which the hits originated. This is cutting edge physics, stemming from physicists like Germany's Rainer Plaga and Princeton's late John Archibald Wheeler.

"And I'm issuing a challenge to Stefon Bristol and Fredrica Bailey to defend their film in a STEM debate, at a prearranged time and place, agreeable to all. We can even structure it as a fund raiser for some New York STEM high school, like the Bronx High School of Science. Then, it's put up or shut up."

In a scathing reaction to the promotion of the film ( ), when it became apparent that it would contain many inaccuracies across the board despite being promoted as otherwise, Marshall presented lots of photos and other documentation to give credibility to his position and right to criticize what Bristol and Bailey had done, in the form of copies of recognitions that his STEM work had received and his students, the youngest being 4-5 graders from a math and science club. These were exactly the kind that J. Robert Oppenheimer said could see mistakes that physicists like himself make due to "modes of sensory perception that he lost long ago". Included in the article is an embedded video promo produced, directed, edited and soundtrack by Marshall, about his Oppenheimer program.

"I don't care what anyone says," Marshall added. This isn't some stupid movie that I'm in. I'm in this professional field for real, making breakthroughs and helping kids learn amazing things. For REAL. There is a tradition in science of public debates. Einstein debated Niels Bohr over quantum mechanics. I'll stand-up to any threat that I see to the advancement in STEM education, especially advanced concept STEM. I don't care if it does come wrapped in a box of hypocritical hype with a bow of Africentric propaganda "
