How come the Electric Universe theory of the universe is not seriously considered respective to contemporary beliefs. Set me straight pleas

I am a quantum Physics groupie. Spooky Magic at a Distance is crazy cool and the Higgs field is all connecting right?

    Also it assumes that 99% of the universe is plasma, this is not observed.
    • Aug 13 2012: Thanks for this! This info is enlightening and gives me some context and perspective. I was all resolved, and then saw the argument raging below in the postings. Someone sure cares about this theory! Very entertaining! Thanks again! Always new questions to explore!

    Aug 13 2012: What is the Electric Universe theory?
    • Aug 13 2012: As far as I can summize it's suppositions resides in the premise that the elctomagnetic force plays a much greater role in the workings of the universe than currently afforded by modern physics. It explains solar bodies as types of fractal arc reactors expanding in the circulatory of the universal culdron not ruled by nuclear fision and mysterious gravitational dimensionallities. Some of it is neat.
