guess ive become cynical and desensitized to it all. lol "
Isn't 1 of the points of ATS is to ask questions? Educate yourself w/ the facts at hand...rely on fellow ATS'ers back-grounds and experience to help
us understand what we're seeing in this case for example?
The OP found this shadow strange....they asked the question's they needed to understand what they're seeing.
You never know...you might learn something Un- expected. How does one become a Professional Astronomer like you with- out being excited and asking
questions. You act as if a personal crime has been done against you.
You take the excitement out of it for anyone w/ interest by treating them less then you are. Is it a crime to have less of an IQ such as yourself?
I remember some stories in history of huge science discoveries from people that were not educated in the field to your satisfaction, but trying to
self educate by simply being interested and excited at what they had saw and was able to document.
Give people a break....let them be excited and ask questions...that's how people learn...that and a patient kind heart.
edit on 4-5-2012 by tracehd1 because: (no reason given)
I think you misunderstood me, which is understandable; as I don't always get my thoughts/feelings into words quite the way I want.
I was talking about posts where people claim things like "THE MOON FLIPPED UPSIDE DOWN", and "THAT CANNOT BE VENUS" , etc.. and then claim they are
100% positive they are correct and then get mad and tell off anyone who states otherwise.
Im all for curiosity , questioning, the unexpected/unknown, and many things the majority of people laugh at and call stupid or nuts. I am the "loony"
one at the observatory, and proud of it. lol
I'd like to further explain, but I do need to sleep right now.
But I'll be glad to chat further and attempt to explain myself/thoughts tomorrow, if you so wish.
I actually do have a very patient and kind heart.
Perhaps one day you'll be able to see it.
It's not always the easiest to show, but I promise, I do.
Maybe we can discuss further tomorrow,
My apologies if I sounded like a dick, it was not my intention at all.
Have a good night and pleasant dreams.
