Apparently the sun cannot be seen by the visible spectrum in space!!
And this next video goes on to say that the sun is not a raging ball of nuclear energy but something else.
Second that motion i actually thought it was a joke but hes serious. Its times like these i have concerns for Humanity.
Concerns for humanity because someone believes something different than you? That's a little bit of a condescending attitude don't you think? There
are plenty of real reasons to be concerned for humanity without having to resort to fake charades of a reason designed to imply your superiority over
others who may think differently than you about something which we know very little about. Nobody has been inside the sun and very few people as a
percentage of humanity have been in outer space so the topic of the sun is still very much open to different ideas and theories as to nearly every
aspect of it.
And to all you flashlight people..not saying I believe this guy but I am open to new ideas (if I haven't seen it, then it's new to me) and I am
fully able to entertain a thought without aaccepting it as undeniable fact, so... I could be a total snobbish jerk and go on about how awfully
concerned I am about humanity because there is Plenty of matter for the light to come into contact with before it reaches your inside of your
...like the filament, the glass bulb, and all the oxygen, nitrogen and other molecules that make up the air we breathe, not to mention dust. But
I don't need to resort to such cheap, immature tactics designed to ridicule others in order to feel superior. I don't need that extra boost to feel
better about myself and convince myself that my life has value and meaning. I'm fully comfortable seeing myself as "merely" equal to others.
We are all capable of making mistakes, and having different beliefs, and furthermore, being that it's impossible for anybody to absorb all the
existing information, let alone remember it all, and the fact that as humans we have a finite amount of time to spend learning, we all by happenstance
will each happen to come across our own unique sets of information. One person may know a
lot about certain topics but may have spent virtually no time on other topics. Some people may see this as cause for concern for nothing less than
humanity itself (or at least pretend to in a way designed to ridicule others and imply superiority over them) but I tend to see it as not only normal
but the only possible way things could be. In fact if everyone had come across only the same information, that would indeed be cause for concern
since the human mind as we currently understand and are able to utilize it can only contain and recall at will a pretty small amount of information
when you consider how much there is available to us. We need to all have our own unique "fingerprint" of knowledge so we can have brain surgeons,
musicians, astrophysicists, and other experts. In other words we all need to count on each other and learn to work together as separate components of
a team if we are to get anywhere with anything.
