CRR responds to me:

So that means no, you haven't.

Well, no wonder you don't understand a thing about what Galileo said and keep getting the physics wrong.

Re: Crepuscular rays
We in the Army medical corp back in the day called it the Silver bullet too. As in, "You about to get the Silver bullet for your VD."
As a side note, the first time I was in Germany,(Baumholder),
there was a Armed forces Network public jingle that would come on the radio singing in a ladies voice: " Vee Dee is for EVERY ONE!" Crazy times.

Re: Do the Math!
Well, no wonder you don't understand a thing about what Galileo said and keep getting the physics wrong.

After you quoted Galileo explicitly acknowledging the air resistance issue, there is really no honest thing for CRR to do other than admit that he was wrong about Galileo. I know exactly what to make of his refusal to do exactly that, and I would hope that everyone else does too.

Something to think about when you are watching CRR make other ridiculous arguments. Is it really worthwhile to try pinning down Jello after exposing the slimy fluid that Jello is by nature?

Re: Crepuscular rays
Somehow in the back of my mind I seem to recall that one of the treatments was the injection of a silver compound. And that those injection sites would show up on x-rays for the rest of the patient's life.

Or was it some form of mercury? Do you remember, Doc?

Arsenic. It was called Salversan, and I think it was superseded by World War II -but I can see the name hanging on a long while.

No, you said the sun is close and perspective isn't real.

You still haven't answered the direct questions I asked of you:

Where are you in relation to the ray on the left compared to the ray on the right? How far away are they?

And most importantly: Where do they converge? If you followed them across the sky...you know, turned around...where do they go?

Re: Crepuscular rays
Hi dwise1, from what I can remember the syringe syrettes where silver and bullet shaped which I think was where the nickname "getting the silver bullet" came from. And believe me it was so I been told quite painful as the penicillin was as thick as peanut butter.

I want to know how flat-earthers think that people have flown around the world. My round the world trip.

Me, I personaly started off in Jo'burg to Sydney, then off to Honoloulou, then off to Santiago, then off to LA, then off to London and then back to Jo'burg. The last flight was more-or-less directly SSE.

My flight between Jo'burg and Sydney was wonderful. I learned about the existence of the Kerguelen Islands by flying over them!

Flat earth society.
Probably Lead or Mercury. They used to inject people with combinations of Pb and/or Hg and then applied sucking leaches as a "cure" for STD's. And Typhoid.

Both lead and mercury and bleeding can be very effective cures for everything; very, very effective.

The only thing flat earthers have to fear is sphere itself.

They'll connect with reality eventually. Might take them a while to get 'round to it...


Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.

Belief gets in the way of learning--Robert A. Heinlein

In the name of diversity, college student demands to be kept in ignorance of the culture that made diversity a value--StultisTheFool

It's not what we don't know that hurts, it's what we know that ain't so--Will Rogers

If I am entitled to something, someone else is obliged to pay--Jerry Pournelle

If a religion's teachings are true, then it should have nothing to fear from science...--dwise1

"Multiculturalism" demands that the US be tolerant of everything except its own past, culture, traditions, and identity.

Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other points of view--William F. Buckley Jr.
