Comment on New forum by C4L.
I do have a few things to say about all of this. First of all I want to state that I am a scientist although in no way related to astronomy, physics, etc.
There are some good things that you are doing here. First, I do think you are good to make people question their beliefs. However if you are not willing to question your own beliefs as well, that is majorly hypocritical. You have shown that multiple times in the comments above. But questioning in general is good. It turns out that around 1900 it was thought physics was almost entirely solved. There were just two unanswered questions/problems: block-body radiation and the photo-electric effect. Boltzman came up with a solution and swore it couldn’t be right and no one should believe it, but it mathematically fit. It turned out it was right and quantum physics was born. Numerous findings since then have confirmed it. All physicists had to question their beliefs to accept quantum physics. You may have to question your beliefs just like you are asking everyone else to question theirs.
Now, with your model, can you explain the following. Please note that with the current accepted model these are all explainable and very well understood. You have lots of catching up to do to bring your model to the level of completion that the current accepted model is at. Many of these are easily noticeable at your own convenience and do not require trust in an organization such as NASA.
* Functioning of compasses
* Functioning of GPS (and more generally satellites)
* Aurora borealis/australis
* Magnetic poles shift over time
* Climates generally change with latitude
* Phases of the moon
* Only one side of the Moon is ever seen from any location on Earth
* Visibility of the Moon at day time and night time simultaneously in different locations (call someone up in a very different time zone)
* Sunsets/sunrises of different colors then high-noon, simultaneous observation of sunsets/sunrises as the sun being at high-noon (call someone in a very different time zone)
* Tides (including why the tides change in magnitude every day)
* Coriolis effect
* Positions of the stars changing over millennia (I am not talking about nightly changes or seasonal changes, I am taking about the fact that the stars in 1600 were in different positions then they are in 2000)
* Volcanoes, tectonic shifts, earthquakes
* If our vision is misleading, then why is it that when we take a picture that picture looks pretty much like what we see (with maybe some coloring differences)
* How we stay put on the Earth (you say gravity is problematic)
* How come other objects have gravity
* Why does air rest near the surface of the Earth?
* Speed of light (this is more involved to test on your own, but is possible, using revolving mirrors on two the two sides of a big canyon like the Grand Canyon)
* Comets get further away than Sun does
* Many planets in our solar system are further away than the Sun
* Orbital movements of planets
* Why planets are the distance they are
* At what altitude do you pass the stars?
* Why is it that when you go up in altitude the stars don’t get visibly larger before you “pass” them?
* Why can’t you see the stars below you once you go above them?
* What holds the stars in place?
* Why does the Earth look spherical from the balloon cameras?
* As the balloon rises, the Earth looks more and more like the outside of a sphere instead of the inside of a sphere?
* Do we have to change all of physics and chemistry to adopt a new model of light? If light changes a good portion of physics and chemistry will need to be changed as well.
Have you had the answer from a physicist from the accepted model on your question of why you can’t see stars? I would like to see this answer. A simple test may be possible depending on what the answer is. Most things I can find online are suppositions from amateurs and not pros. Its possible you could design a special camera that blocks out other light sources or uses a photomultiplier tube setup for a few $100 that could circumvent the issues.
If you had unlimited resources, what experiments would you perform to prove your model and force the current accepted model to be refuted?
Mostly, this is just for you to think about. I will probably never respond again.
