First of all, orbits are not a result of gravity. [...]

you ppl dont think.

WTF?! || meh


Then what is it? Angels swinging the planets around on a golden string?

Gravity is a myth - this planet sucks!

What does cause the orbits then? Gravity as a cause makes a lot of sense. Lack of scientific understanding always makes my head hurt.

And doesn't he realize that complexity is usually the hallmark of chaos while simplicity is the hallmark of design?

Later in the thread:

\"i think the reason i thought that because something is infinitely small it must = 0 is because in my limited calculus training we found that the limit of 1 divided by infinity is 0. jus trying to think abstractly\"

I wish I had a Myspace account just so I could tell this guy he should have paid more attention in his calculus class, because what he wrote right there is flat-out wrong.

Oh my.

Of course, as anyone who has seen an orrery will know, the planets are actually held in place with wires. Gravity has nothing to do with it.

\"something is infinitely small it must = 0 because... we found that the limit of 1 divided by infinity is 0.\"

Wait, does he know what a limit is? Just because it is a number approaching zero doesn't... nevermind. I give up.

Funny, because the Universal Law of Gravitation correctly predicts the shape of the orbits (elliptic, parabolic, or hyperbolic) we observe. And it also seems to predict the sort of effect we saw with Hale-Bopp as it passed by Jupiter - the comet passed close enough that Jupiter's gravity severely altered its trajectory.

Are you suggesting that some other force is having *exactly* the effect we would expect gravity to have and gravity isn't doing diddly?

This guy is a tool - I like how anytime someone disagrees with him, his first charge is that they are just disagreeing to argue.

Go back to high school. Go directly back to high school. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.

For anyone who wants a really good lesson in quantum models of the universe, the original posts from whence these comments came is awesome. Unfortunately, Mr. |-Jaguar-| never really seemed to get it; not even on his last posts.

TDR wins, comment of the month :D

They're a result of the magical space trolls pushing the planets and the asteroids and the sun around the Earth.

we don't think....its not even worth arguing with these people, you'd get more intellectual and rational discussion out of a drunk pig.

I thought the "intelligent falling" thing was a joke.

I proudly proclaim myself a gravitationist !

String cant work because it would get tangled as the plantets revolve around the Sun. Sorry but I am not a geocenterist.

Perhaps if the planets were on wires you could get that to work. Like an orrery.

@anti-nonsense: It started out as poe, but then fundies took it hook, line, and sinker.
