['From what I remember of schoolboy physics, measuring the size of the sun, or the distance between stellar objects is quite achieveable using proven scientific methods.']
“From what I remember of schoolboy physics…” well if that is what you have to base all your opinions on then that really is not good enough, is it? I have been using proven methods of my own to measure the width of a child’s thoughts and these are just as valid as your own so called “Proven Scientific methods”. Proven how, I ask you? By the very people who come up with them in the first place and with an obvious vested interest in maintaining the public faith in their validity. If it is so proven then I think you should go ahead and prove it for yourself. Having found that it is all based on abstruse mathematics and the words of a bloke in a dress from Ancient Greece I think you will find that there may be unanswered questions. For a start, has anyone ever been to the sun to see how far away IT REALLY IS? Well? WHO?
The problem of most of you people is that you just beleive the first thing you come across without questioning any of what backs it up. Everything is based on things which are taken as given but are all, in effect, postulations that are entirely questionable. I refer you to the concept of a Hypothesis.
