Just because you do not pay attention to the skies does not mean that it is not happening. I make a habit of checking out the sun sets and when there
is a 30 degree discrepancy from where the sun SHOULD be (as in where it has set since I was a child) and where it currently is setting, then I take
The debunkers are in full force as the sheeple are starting to wake up. How about you, copper top? Check the skies and do your own measurements.
That is if you can get historical data that has not been doctored...
I don't mean to insult your intelligence, but hopefully you took into account that the Sun "normally" sets in a different location every day of the
year as the year progresses -- so from summer to winter the Sun will set in a completely different location.
Here's a graphic I found that shows the difference in the location of the Sun over the course of a year (this graphic happens to be the Sun as seen
from Allentown, Pennsylvania USA):
However, if you are saying that the Sun's position has changed even after
taking into account the Sun's normal
across the sky, I would have to vehemently disagree with you based on my own observations...
I've lived in the same house for the past 30+ years, and I know EXACLTY where the Sun sets during the various times of the year -- and they have not
changed. I know in the summertime that the evening Sunshine is blocked by my neighbor's big stone chimney, and the shadow makes for a nice cool spot
to put my chair on my front porch. The general location of that shady-cool spot during the middle of summer has not changed as long as I can
remember. If the Sun had moved 30 degrees, the shadow would noy even be anywhere on my porch.
In fact, the position of the setting Sun has NOT change appreciably over the past several decades (although
would account for changes in the Sun's position in timescales of hundreds and
thousands of years -- but 'precession' is well understood and is not related to Nibiru).
That's why the "henges" (such as Stonehenge) and other astronomical observatories built by ancient and not-so-ancient people still work today --
because the Sun always ends up rising or setting in virtually the exact same place in the sky as it did exactly 1 year earlier, and 1 year before
that, and so on in a highly predictable manner. Those ancient observatories told ancient people when spring (and the planting season) had arrived,
and those sun alignments still work today.
There are people who have built modern 'henges' and other crude Sun-alignment observatories. I say this because a good friend of mine built one --
just for fun -- in his garden several years ago... The 9:00 AM Sun on the day of the spring equinox shines onto a small rock obelisk, and the point of
that obelisk casts a shadow onto the center of a little medallion of the Sun. It's a fun and cool little garden feature. Granted -- the shadow also
falls on that medallion a few days before and a few days after the equinox, but it's still a pretty cool thing to see.
My friend has had this fun little "stone observatory" for about 15 or 20 years now (I should ask him when he built it), but the shadows still fall
on the same place during the spring equinox as it did when he built it -- so his "observatory" has not noticed changes in the Sun's location,
Obviously, as I said, the Sun will set in a completely different place in winter as it would in summer -- even the difference over three months is
quite noticeable. However, this also has nothing to do with Nibiru and has everything to do with Earth's 23.5 degree axial tilt.
