Did Aliens use the same units of measure we did? Surely and logicaly the answer is a giant NO! I'll do some of my math and see is he's on to
something or not.
In this picture he uses to discribe his point that the numbers are too perfect for it to be a natural occurance. Except the numbers he uses are going
to produce the answer he wanted. Iapetus has an orbital tilt of not ~16° but 7.52°. This inacuaracy in his data may have been due to an unreliable
source of information (himself) or he used a protractor against the comupter screen. As for it's diameter, which he should have used SI units,
kilometers (to make his calculations with formulas correct but also make him sound more like a scientist). In miles 892.29 miles is the accurate
number, it should be in kilometers which is 1436 kilometers. He uses Saturn's radiis did he tell you what the radii is? No. He just says that is 60
of them far. It's radii is 60268 kilometers.
60 * 60268 = 3,616,080 KM < This is the orbital radii
Iapetus' actual orbital radii 3,561,300 it has a good half a million kms over his answer.
Accuracy = (3616080 - 3561300) / 3561300 = %accuacy
Accuracy = 1.5%
I'm not going to lie to you people, but he is close, very close, only 1.5% off what is the accepted value I have assigned, this shocked me, big time.
Run that again substituting miles.
Accuracy = (2246927.940826 - 2212889.226915) / 2212889.226915 = %accuacy
Accuracy = 1.5%
If his calculation was off by 15% then we have a BS. 1.5% is amazingly accurate.
I guess math works both ways, right? 1 point for Hoagie
What about that inaccuracy in in the orbital angle? The use of a "~" means in other words anywhere on the number line resonable close to 16, or in
his math from 0.00 - what ever I feel like. How do you get ~16° from 7.52° which is the know fact? Did aliens use degrees? How about Radians? or
Gradians? Did they even use the same system of measument of angles we do? Or the same way of counting altogether? We are using high school math,
aliens are bound to have a more sophisticated form of it. Okay enough of that. Lets see what we learned can change his answer in the picture.
Hoagland:
~15 * ~60 = ~900 < scary alien math
GoldEagle
7.52 * 60 = 451.2 < sounds natural to me
SCORE:
Hoagland: 1 - GoldEagle: 2
I'll be back with more so stay tuned.
