Quote# 114671

Orbital motion comprises of three separate forces each playing their part.

Pendulum motion explains it best whereby gravity gives way to centrifugal force which continues until a weightless force allows gravity to return. This is why our orbital path is elliptical. So the nasty disturbances we are creating on this planet will certainly put this planet under a great load...and WW3 will probably be the last straw.

The Holy Bible does indicate that the planet will remain part of the solar system but much further away from the sun and life will be very different.

It seems that the planet is now struggling to maintain the status qho hence all the unexpected and unusual global disturbances which, it seems, has aroused the interest of scientists from other worlds.

You know nothing of orbital mechanics. Wars do not change the earths orbit. The earth isn't struggling to maintain its orbit. There is no way for earth to go into a significantly higher orbit at all, ever. Orbital motion is explained with only 1 force: gravity.

Fuck your ignorant stupid rant.

So much wrong.

If they're amused by us it'll be the stupid religions that tickle or disgust them. It's probably like watching an episode of South Park to them right now with the Right-wing politics and religions now out-Cartmaning Cartman.

By the way, gravity does not give way it is merely overcome, everything on this planet is working within its constant presence. You're trying to mystify it again, now pendulums are magic, God wound Earth up, stop dragging science into your fairy tale world.

I was taught that there is no such thing as "centrifugal" force, but "centripetal" force does exist. However, maybe things have changed in the last 50 years

The Holy Bible does indicate that the planet will remain part of the solar system

Please show me where in the bible it ever talks about planets or a solar system.

Sir Issac Newton and Johannes Kepler are spinning in their graves...

Where in the book does it say the Earth will be farther from Sol? Book, Chapter, and verse. Otherwise, it, like many things people say are in there and aren't, comes from the apocryphal book of "Depths of the Ass". It's in the back somewhere.

I'm fairly certain that life would be very different on account of being very dead, if the Earth moved out of the Goldilocks Zone.

There are no such things as "pendulum force"and "centrifugal force". They're both just inertia on a leash, if you will. Unspecified "weightless" forces that allow gravity to "return" from somewhere, I'm not gonna touch.

So... that job interview at NASA/JPL didn't work out, eh Nicole Arse? [/hyper-sarcasm]

I don't believe you've ever taken a physics class in your life, Nicholas.

As someone who started as a physics major before switching to linguistics, I want to take this person into a back alley and beat him savagely.

Global disturbances? Am I playing this too loud?

Empasis mine.

And yet, in your last post you claimed the earth was moving far and fast enough to give the illusion of stars falling from the sky.

Do you even know what distances are? Just how much the earth would have to move to change the relative positions of the stars?

"all the unexpected and unusual global disturbances"

Seemingly there is no reason for these extraordinary intergalactical upsets....Only Doctor Hans Zarkov, formerly at NASA, has provided any explanation....

All of the energy we have ever expended is really peanuts compared literally all major natural forces on the planet.

Have only recently started consuming about 100000TWh per year

The Sun delivers that much energy in one and a half hours.

We couldn't make a dent if we tried.

The Gerry Anderson series "Space: 1999" is not a documentary, Nicole Arse.

@NotaReptile

Which is why the Human Resistance & Skynet relied upon the huge solar reflector in space to channel all that radiant energy from the sun to provide the petawatts of power required for their Temporal Displacement facilities.

...now there's a thought, NASA/JPL...!

The Holy Bible indicates a solar system of which Earth is just a part, not the center? That must be a different Bible from the one I've (almost) read.

Unexpected and unusual disturbances? What are those and why haven't they hit the news yet?

NicholasMarks is an unexpected and unusual disturbance. But I'm pretty sure he's not arousing much interest...
