Sigh......there is no rational mechanism for an "expanding Earth"......not in the sense of its diameter and circumference increasing. It is not
logical, defies laws of physics and gravity, and has absolutely ZERO empirical evidence of any kind.
...also many things wrong with the idea that the core is iron and that nothing is expanding, and that comets are balls of ice and with plate
Tossing many of the misconceptions into that one sentence. Comets being simplistically described as mere "balls of ice" works to the advantage of
those who continue to push their agendas of the "Electric Universe Theory" by conjuring in people's minds the visions of big ice cubes or something,
when the science and spectroscopy derived from numerous observations account for the prevailing theories (and, do not fall into that trap of
mis-defining a "theory"......theories are not empty guesses.....that better describes the EU conjecture -- "conjecture" since it does not approach the
level of "theory").
This is the problem inherent so often, with such wild claims that are "wished for" by a few, merely to "go against the grain" -- the levels and depths
of the science involved are simply not comprehended.
.Perhaps you should do some study ...
And, these tangents don't help anyone:
You cannot deny that some of the things that are seen in the NASA space video of the shuttle cannot be explained by 'ice crystals' or other
Yes again, they can......the term 'ice crystals' is, like the "balls of ice", meant to be derisive and used to over-simplify the nature of the debris,
and the complexity of the issue.
There is a vast amount just on this planet alone that we have not explored an do not know and in my opinion no one can categorically state that
we know it all. The science, in all spheres, most definitely is NOT settled.
And that is a catch-all fallacious "appeal" that, once again, works on those who merely "wish" for every fantastical belief they have to be
"fulfilled" as "true".
By the way go tell the Shamans and medicine men of your opinion on mind enhancing drugs. They would laugh at you.
I NEVER suggest "drugs" as part of this....I specifically kept them OUT of it. YOU brought them up.....And this mentioned only so everyone can see
what happened there, lest I
be falsely accused later.
just to add, regarding this ^ ^ ^ line of discussion and make it perfectly clear: Note (again) the Forum title, and consider that the
discussion of this anonymous "friend's" beliefs falls completely within that subject heading, as it certainly appears to be (for him) a psychological
and philosophic issue that is interesting for others to review and continue to ponder. . It is the power of imagination
psychology at work. Requires nothing else but normal neuro-chemicals to achieve such "inspirations" in some people.
That does NOT make these "thoughts" accurate in any real sense (except only to the person who believes them. Perhaps).
