Holy semantics, Batman! This super fine grain criticism of Trump is such a waste of time.

Why doesn't the curtain hide the stars which fill the entire sky at night when the sun is supposedly still in the sky but hidden behind the curtain? Are the stars closer than the sun, so they are in front of the curtain? Why does the sun not just go out like a light switch when the curtain is drawn in front of it, instead of the gradual fading of the light at sunset that we see every day?Perhaps I am having difficulty communicating the point.
The Sun never goes behind the curtain.
The stars and moon may produce a different type of light not affected by the properties of the curtain.
It might be better to use the word veil instead of curtain.
They never just blacken a movie theatre when they are about to show a movie, do they?
Nope, they slowly fade to dark.
I do not know if the Sun is at a consistent 3000 mile altitude.
Because he is so fragile nowadays that he can't stand to be roasted.
Trump's rallys are actually televised speeches to the american public to communicate his progress and intentions. That seems to me to be a lot more valuable, and a better use of his time, than attending some dinner party.
Junker, it is an invalid experiment. You are replicating the direction, but not the angle of the moon. With the string you may end up making a path that connects the two bodies, but is not true to the angle of the moon:
Well quite! We've been arguing for 11 pages saying that it didn't prove a thing about flat/round, it's just an illusion, but Tom keeps going woo, I just want it to stop Junker, I can't sleep.
The illustration can easily be redrawn with him standing straight up and holding the string above his head.
What a transparent and pathetic rebuttal. Limbo has nothing to do with it.
Everyone can see what the problem is here with this "string thing" experiment.
The directions are to take a string, align with the crescent, and connect it from the moon to the sun. This would result in what I have illustrated.
You have provided nothing compelling to ensure that the string is pointing in exactly the same direction as the moon's phase. I must only assume that you have been outsmarted.
I concur, both as art and as an illustration of your understanding, it’s another failure I’m afraid, hopefully a member of the FE crew will attempt this in the true spirit of free thinking discovery, that this place is supposed to represent.
The test was critically evaluated and you have yet to explain how we can do this "string thing" experiment without repeating the flaw as illustrated.
Obviously better than drawing an imaginary line, like the OP. Your illogic is astonishing Senor Bishop.
The illustration gives a better view of the experiment. Nirmala did the experiment for us on video, and I didn't accuse him of deception. I have no problem with the video showing what it shows. Why replicate again? How many videos of the same thing do we need?
The illustration I provided is a pungent point that the experiment is ultimately an invalid test of the moon's direction.
