Looking for the proof I needed it was not hard to find. If God created photons why and what would be the purpose of having them radiate from a source if the purpose of having photons was to transmit energy? If God had that intention he would have invented something better than the laser. It would be the inverse of the inverse square law . It would concentrate photons rather than radiate them into space and concentrate them at a point identical to the source from which they came. The same would be true of the other inverse square law phenomena which I think are just limited to photons, gravity and magnetism. The suggestion that all three of these obey the inverse square law implies something about all of these. All come from a source that has mass but all three have no mass, and none of them actually transmit energy though space in spite of the apparent illusions. Any implications that any of them have properties of waves or frequencies are according to remote detectors made of mater even if they should have counteractive properties.
As for infrared detection ....infrared radiation is a signature of something that was hotter before shedding those infrared photons as detected. There might be no reason to believe an object that had had excess infrared energy is necessarily still hot without them. The curious thing about infrared radiation is that what ever has shed them apparently has no need for the excess 'Heat'. If it was not excess than they would not be radiated or re-radiated but retained as some form of internal kinetic energy? That assists in creating the proof that photons do not actually transmit energy that is a property of themselves nor provide a carriage for transporting it. The idea of semantics of photons as pure code wins again.
