Quote# 88279

Regarding an article stating that 1/3 of Russians believe that the Sun revolces around the Earth:

"It doesn't say the EARTH STOPPED SPINNING! Can you imagine what the oceans would have done were the earth to suddenly stop then restart? Can you say SLOSH? Get your theology straight people. I could care less what atheist science rambles on about, let God be true, but every man a liar - Romans 3:4

Why is Polaris always dead center up north if our axis is tilted? Where are the 1056 mph winds if the earth is spinning so fast??? Don't even start by telling me the spinning earth drags the atmosphere along with it, 'cause I don't buy it. I don't see any giant fan blades growing out of the ground to help out with this. If the earth was spinning that fast there should be F6 tornado speed winds, 24 hours a day, along the equator, F5 everywhere else. The weather was pretty nice where I live, today. Just a nice gently north western breese. Don't know about the ol' USA. I did hear things are a bit uncomfortable over there these days."

Okay, could someone please enlighten me here? -What's with this earth- centric shit? does it say something about it in the babble or something? Why do they come up with these painfully stupid refutations??

Do these people also believe that Moon is made of cheese?

Just because Pete doesn't buy it (meaning - understand it) doesn't mean it isn't factual.

Seems that it's not only a percentage of Russians who think the sun orbits the earth.

...oh, and four words: Yuri Gagarin. Neil Armstrong.

Looking at the discussion that quote came from, this Petezzzz guy seems to be considered a nutcase even by other members of Rapture Ready.

Also, geometry and gravity seem to be completely new concepts for this idiot.

"Why is Polaris always dead center up north if our axis is tilted"?

Oy. It is way too early in the morning for stupidity of this caliber. Looks like someone missed the memo that, contrary to popular cartography, "north" does not equal "up".

Cassiterides, is that you? o_O

This certainly looks like his insanity.

"Why is Polaris always dead center up north if our axis is tilted?"

Because it is tilted in the direction of Polaris, is that too hard to understand?

"Where are the 1056 mph winds if the earth is spinning so fast???"

Well the atmosphere is (as a whole) revolving along with the Earth so...

"Don't even start by telling me the spinning earth drags the atmosphere along with it, 'cause I don't buy it. I don't see any giant fan blades growing out of the ground to help out with this. If the earth was spinning that fast there should be F6 tornado speed winds, 24 hours a day, along the equator, F5 everywhere else."

...Um, ever travelled in a train or plane, or driven a car? Notice how the air inside those vehicles doesn't blow in your face at whatever speed they are travelling at?

It's like that.

Guess what? Polaris wasn't always the North Star. A few thousand years ago, it was Vega, and a couplethree in the future, it'll be something else. That's because the Earth wobbles on its axis. Meanwhile, if it's true 1/3 of all Russians think that, someplace, the ghosts of Yurii Gagarin and Andrei Belyaev are weeping, and the Soviets were right about what would happen ifthe Western devils took their system down.

Poe?

Also, the saying is: "I couldn't care less". Why can't people get this right? Why don't they realize they're saying the opposite of what they mean?

I've seen a scary influx of geocentrists lately. I suppose if you don't believe anything anyone says, anyway, you are free to make up any ol' "it seems to me" answer. The hubris to think you are so much smarter than the best people who have studied specific sciences for their entire career is laughable.

" let God be true, but every man a liar - Romans 3:4 "

Every one of you fundies IS a liar.

Well, at least Russia has some excuse for such abominable ignorance: that country went to hell in the Nineties. Of course, last I heard, about an equal number of Americans believe in geocentrism and we have no excuse. It's the 21st century; why do Americans still think the Sun revolves around the Earth? Are there any people who believe this in Sweden?!

The atmosphere is spinning along with the earth, you idiot. Funny how he gets it right with the oceans, but gets it wrong about the atmosphere.

"The weather was pretty nice where I live, today. Just a nice gently north western breese. Don't know about the ol' USA."

If ONLY there was some way to know about the weather in far off lands... like maybe if there was something orbiting the Earth that could take photos of the clouds and "beam" the images down to us. Not only would we know what the weather was like, but we could also find out the Earth's true rotational speed too. Maybe someday the Earth Spin Speed Cabal will be broken and the truth will be set free...

I correct myself: Vega will become the North Star. There is currently no South Star, but there has been, and will be again.

You obviously fail to understand the gravity of the situation ...

... along with a whole lot of other concepts most of us learned by fifth grade.

Let:
d = density
m = mass
v = volume

d = m/v (m ÷ v)

"An adult human head cut off around vertebra C3, with no hair, weighs somewhere between 4.5 and 5kg, constituting around 8% of the whole body mass." - Danny Yee

The volume of Petezzzz's head is deceptively difficult to calculate. The surface area encloses an almost perfect vacuum, and would, if allowed to collapse, achieve a displacement approaching zero.

Ergo, the density of Petezzzz = approx. 4.5 ÷ (0 (infinitely small, approaching limit zero). As the denominator approaches zero, the density approaches infinity.

In other words Petezzzz, YOU ARE TOO F-ING DENSE TO UNDERSTAND THE EXPLANATION!

How's that for "atheist science", you tit?

Edit: Damn. This web site doesn't do ascii 244.

SLOSH! There! I said it.

What about Joshua and the sun standing still? The planet should have been shrivelled up.

What about the irrefutable knowledge gained during space shots?

In other words, Petezzz is an ignoramus, so deeply engrained in his ignorance that it would be a kind piece of social hygiene to lock him away in some caring institution.

Yes, the Sun goes around the Earth. All modern science since Galileo is part of a giant global conspiracy to mess with your head. Admittedly it's a lot of set up to prank one person but it's a funny concept. Too bad you're so smart that you saw right through our ruse.
