PhilipM Shame on me -- I had forgotten! And that is an area in which we used to lead the world I'm told. Don't know about today. Guys this clogging up the Two spin axes of Earth thread. Does no one like my Chatter thread idea?

Neville J I didn't mention telescopes but I get your point. I also understand that astronomers today do not sit in freezing conditions, watering eyes straining at eyepieces and sketching intermittently on a pad with a pencil held in one of those fingerless glove things. Paul D Neville Jones <njones@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: Paul, The diffraction limit of "big expensive" telescopes is not achieved in the real world. Also, no astronomer is "directly examin[ing] the universe," but rather making observations in a terrestrial laboratory and seeking to promote and understand those observations within the currently accepted model.

There was an attempt at humour in there -- perhaps that is what has sparked your ire? What Regner is doing that only a very small percentage of the overall population is doing -- is being a professional astronomer. He gets to use lots of big expensive exciting equipment to directly examine the universe. I don't know about you but I'm envious. Paul D ----- Original Message ---- From: Jack Lewis <jack.lewis@xxxxxxxxxxxx> To: geocentrism@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Dear Paul, Why did you find it necessary to patronise Regner in that way? Regarding the 'real thing' what in heavens name is Regner doing that no-one else is? Jack ----- Original Message ----- From: Paul Deema To: geocentrism@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Allen D I'd be careful about advising Regner to refer to a model. He doesn't need one. He plays with the real thing!
