Is Mother Earth Flat-Chested?

Richard Syrett, hosting the Conspiracy Show,  interviews Eric Dubay, president of the International Flat Earth Research Society. His contention is that we live on a plane, not on a spherical planet. Like the beliefs of antiquity, he suggests that the Earth is flat and is the center of the universe with everything revolving around us.

Now, I find it hard to believe, but his “proof” is quite compelling. But it is contrary to every thing I’ve been taught about space and how the universe works. It flies in the face of not only standard planetary models, but also in the Electric Universe theory that I have been researching for some time (which makes more sense than the official theory).

Dubay would love to debate a scientist, especially Neil deGrasse Tyson (which I would love to see). However, they need to bring on Wal Thornhill for a three way.

BTW: I think that David Talbot’s series Discourses of an Alien Sky explains so much about what the ancient inhabitants of this planet saw in the sky and why the various Petroglyphs, drawings and other ancient artwork represent this once bizarre planetary alignment. The strange things they saw are very different than what we see now.

This series, Discourses on an Alien Sky, begins an extended exploration of ancient cultural themes introduced in the documentary, Symbols of an Alien Sky. The subject is the ancient experience of towering celestial forms that are no longer present. From a single snapshot of the configuration, we can work backwards to the first appearance of these bodies out of an undifferentiated cloud or sea of dusty plasma. We can then follow the configuration’s evolution through phases that range from quasi-stability to earth shaking catastrophe. The foundation of this reconstruction is provided by the points of agreement between ancient cultures the world over.  Look below for a full list of Discourses on an Alien Sky videos.

Perseids Meteor Shower

Tonight after dark begins an amazing show of meteors.  We go through the trail of a comet that past many years ago.  The shower’s parent comet, 109P/Swift-Tuttle passed through our inner solar system back in the early 1990’s and will not  be back again until 2126.  It left a real good dust trail then with the particulate matter being about the size of a corn flake and with the same texture.  So none of this will make it to the surface.  It started on the 11th of this month and will last until the 13th.  So you have a chance to see it early Saturday morning.  The northern hemisphere gets the best show this time and streaks start to show up as soon as it gets dark and peaks an hour or two before dawn.  These meteors will be “shooting” from the Perseids radiant, so look in the direction of that constellation.

The Perseid Radiant

Look towards the North East

However you can see meteors in every direction

I’m not real big into astronomy and I was reminded of this today from B”man or I wouldn’t have even remembered.  However I do recall watching this in 2004 with the same type of moon we have now.  Which is just a sliver and rises in the NW before sunset and sets quickly around midnight.  So if you are out in the boon docks like me you should really see a show.  It is a quarter after midnight and I have already seen a dozen, mostly around ten.  SkyandTelescope is one of the best sites I have found for a redneck with two years of college to figure what is going on in the sky.  I just recently started following the moon phases to see if I could catch more bass during certain times of the months.  Which I am finding out wind direction and gradient pressure has more to do with bass hitting than anything.

With the recent “close” call we had with an asteroid and the lack of news of such a thing, I plan to at least try to get my star news from an independent source.  S & T works pretty well and I will keep the rest of  my redneck buddies up to date from what I can find from them.  Gotta go outside and look.  It will be three years before we have a moon in the first quarter during August when we pass through this trail every year.
