But if the sun is darting like a comet through the galaxy and the planets are circling around the sun, what keeps the planets circling the sun in a consistent distance from it without flying off out of the solar system?Bruce did a model of the solar system based on RS scalar motion--NO GRAVITATIONAL FORCE in the model, at all. And sure enough, the planets look like they are in orbit!
A simple analogy... take two Deloreans and put them on a 1-lane road, 10 miles apart, so they are facing each other. Get each one going at 88 mph then shift into neutral. Each Delorean weights 2712 pounds. Calculate the gravitation force of attraction that is pulling them together, with eventual collision.
Now you should say "that's nonsense!" There is NO gravitational force pulling the Deloreans together--they are just moving at each other, at constant velocity. Well, that's all the planets are doing with the sun and each other.
As am I. Have you ever heard that the moon's light is cooler than the shadow it produces?Looking forward to the results.
Ok, I'm going to have to spend more time on this one. I still cannot get around the fact that the sun is way high in the sky, say 45 degrees to my left and then there is the moon way high in the sky 45 degrees to the right yet there may only be a small crescent of the moon exposed. I know that is basically what I said before but I'm having trouble with this one.It has to do with triangulation, not shadows. Take a flashlight and put it on the table, pointing at you. Hold a ball in your hand (the moon). Stand behind the ball from the flashlight... it is dark. Slowly move the ball around you and you will see the light from the flashlight lights it up, just like the phases of the moon. It only gets to be "full" just before it crosses into your shadow.
Ok, this makes a little more sense. I will read Beyond Newton and see if it clears it up for me.Gravity is just a 3D, inward scalar motion (read Beyond Newton: An Explanation of Gravitation by Larson). It originates from the 2D inward, magnetic motion coupled with the 1D electric motion. 2D + 1D is 3D... gravity is not an independent "force,"
Quite simply, I don't understand what you are saying here.Water always goes downhill... even if it is a billionth of an inch. The net, inward motion we call "gravity" is perpendicular to the surface of the Earth, all the way around, so it behaves as if it were flat.
Oh? What do you mean exactly?Unfortunately for the Flat Earthers, the "crack in the firmament" is in the "waters below," not above.
Ha, ok. Note to self.Polaris moves; just very slowly. Check its location in about 10,000 years, and you'll see what I mean.
Polaris has been studied and observed for over 10,000 years so wouldn't there be some sort of variance at this point? Our solar system would've moved through the galaxy some 1.7 trillion miles in the last 10,000 years. Surely that is enough to change our perspectives on not only Polaris but the constellations as well. However, they remain just as they were observed well over 10,000 years ago. Still not sure how this is possible.
Lucky for me, camping just like that is on the docket this summer so I will certainly be looking out for it.Go do some camping up in Wyoming, Montana or the Dakotas--"Big Sky country" and you'll see this every morning and evening. It only lasts a short time, as the sun's angle changes quickly (15 degrees an hour) and we've only got a 6-mile gap between the ground and cloud base. But I've even seen it throw chemtrail shadows UP to the clouds above... looks weird, like "black chemtrails."
Ok, thanks for that. This does seem like a flawed model for sure.Bruce did a model of it, using the precise data from the Flat Earth society for sizes and positions. As you can see in this snapshot, the little sun lights roughly 1/3rd of the path it follows. Draw a circle, half way between the center (Arctic) and rim (Antarctic), which would be the location of the equator--and you'll see the lit-up bit is roughly 1/3rd of the distance.
With all the bullsh*t, misinformation, disinformation and psy-ops out there, common sense is increasingly subjective and decreasingly objective.Not if you apply common sense and some basic geometry (which I've noticed seems to lack in most people these days).
100% agreed. No one has the full story. That's why forums like these are so important!Things aren't as we've been told, by mainstream science or Flat Earthers.
