Like I said:

This will explain all your questions. Please read it carefully:



P.S.

Let's keep the number of voters as it is, so that we would know who voted!

You quote your own old joke? Let me give you some advice. If a million people have done it before you, it is neither creative or funny.

Correct, it is an honest collection of data. Another reason to leave the 0 out was to keep trolls from skewing the data set.

Exactly. Why do people hold onto astronomy and the conspiracy? Why can't we just look at the facts.

The scientific field of astronomy gives us FACTS. YOUR conspiracy THEORY doesn't.

Btw, you never answer me what kind of engineer you are.

The presence of fish-eye lenses isn't going to make me believe the Earth is flat.

There's nothing honest about any post you make.
My problem with his ideas is that it is a ridiculous thing.

Genius. PURE, undiluted genius.

I'm voting for zero... I dont care who knows it, and there was not a spot of the poll for it, so I'm putting my vote here.
Hold it!!! Your statement directly contradicts the evidence.

Objection!!! Your claims make no sense! Think about what you are going to say before you say it!

Evidence is everything...

is a mirror not a lens?  They both cause light to diverge or converge.  Lenses can also completely reflect light via total internal reflection (snell's law).

You can't fool everyone.

Quote
A reflecting telescope (reflector) is an optical telescope which uses a combination of curved or plane (flat) mirrors to reflect light and form an image (catoptric), rather than lenses to refract or bend light to form an image (dioptric).

Regardless of the semantics, all telescopes reshape images. Whether through lenses or mirrors or refraction inside gasses.

You can't have a poll with no option for zero! That is some ignorant shit! Unless it is impossible for there to be zero contradictions, its totally unjustified. And what if I think there is 1 contradiciton, or 2? 10 just doesn't represent my view.

I vote zero.

The intentional decision to exclude 0 is explained. I have confidence you will agree.
