The experimental evidence in support of Squish Theory, is shown on the ‘Research Paper’ page. This page merely explains one very simple test that could distinguish squish theory from quark theory.

In squish theory the mass of a particle is explained by the number of charges present. A neutral particle must have equal numbers of positive and negative charges, and therefore be composed of an even number of charges. Whilst a charged particle must be composed of an odd number of charges.

It therefore follows that if squish theory is correct, it should be impossible for a neutral and a charged particle to have the same mass. However examination of particle mass tables, indicates that both the positive and neutral vector B mesons have a mass of 5325.1 MeV, with an uncertainty of 0.5 MeV. That is a mass of about 10420 electrons, with an uncertainty of about one electron mass for each particle.

Squish theory predicts that the difference in mass between the two particles ought to be close to 0.71 electron-masses; so measuring the mass of these two particles accurately, would be an effective test. Of course if the test did support squish theory, then it would not necessarily prove quark theory wrong; but that is because quark theory is essentially unfalsifiable, which is why it has endured so long.
