And how is it that you can say for a fact that they are fantasy?
Because they were made up in the first place, there's not even the tiniest iota of evidence for their reality, and they are used to explain things
that are easily explained without them or to buttress other claims that in reality have no basis in fact.
IOW. these imaginary lines don't even do anything except imaginary things.
black holes are also imaginary, a hypothesis, but most people take them for granted. and scientists accept them as fact and use them to buttress other
The effect on surroundings that black holes produce can be (and have been) predicted and later verified through actual astronomical observation of
suspected black holes .
Wouldn't call that "imaginary."
I can admit, however, that the prevailing theory for black holes may not be entirely correct. On the other hand, since the comparison is ridiculous
in the first place, this admission really doesn't mean much.
See, Ley lines are used to explain things that have never even been observed, and Ley lines cannot be independantly detected. Ley lines are used to
explain things that there are no reasons at all to believe in the existence of and therefore no reasons at all to attempt to explain.
The concept of black holes was deduced long before any suspect black holes were discovered.
The concept of Ley lines came about as a presumption about alignments of human constructions which are completely and easily explained by mathematics
as typical. Because these alignments are explained mathematically, there's no reason to assume the existence of any such influence as Ley lines are
claimed to have. In other worlds, there's no "mystery" here that needs Ley lines to explain it.
