Years are not the same thing as days. Also, stop spamming in Debate & Discussion, or it'll be a 30-day ban next time.

Days add up to years in case no-one mentioned this to you, and I'm not spamming but defending my thread from spammers who's replies have no science related rebuttal to the O-P, thank-you....

Please learn the difference between a crescent moon and a gibbous moon (see my previous post).
Besides, how does seeing a crescent moon in day or night disprove RE again?



With your left index finger find the waxing crescent and hold it to the screen of your computer, try to remain steady in performing this exercise, with your right index finger point to the dark side of the Earth (preferably the mid-night hour), now, would anyone living where your right finger is pointing see the waxing crescent where your left finger is?
How about you try this. Draw a line from the centre of the waxing crescent moon to the centre of the earth. Then draw a line that goes through the centre of the earth AND bisects your first line at right angles (you'll notice this second line goes through the waning crescent and the waxing gibbous moon). You have just illustrated the half of the earth that see the waxing crescent moon. You will see that most of that half of the earth is in daylight, but there is a small section of it that can see the waxing crescent moon at night.

Feel free to duplicate this for the other phases of the moon. As you get closer to the New moon (as the moon gets smaller and smaller) the piece of earth that can see the moon at night gets smaller and smaller. This is exactly what you would expect to see according to RET. Are you claiming something different is what we actually observe?

hold on a sec............ have you ever been to the equator, explain why the sun is above you!! do you live in the north pole or somthing. explain why water when going down a plug hole spins and dosent just drop through, and why it changes direction when you go under the equater, beacause of gravity. how would gps work if the world was flat???? why does water fall from a water fall. you make the world seem completely synthethic, when its not.

try to prove a threoy that real. and that can be explained. like gravity.

A day is defined by the rotation of the earth about its axis.  A second is defined as a fraction of a day.  Minutes are defined as a multiple of seconds and an hour is defined as a multiple of minutes.

Fletch, did you grow up in a cuboard or some kind of confined space, where you at no contact with human life, or is that still your life?

Seriously, i dont think you even know wtf your talking about, none of you's do. I mean, are you all scientists? have you bullet prove facts to back up your theories? can you prove everything you say about the idea of the world being flat? The very thing that can be easily proven by real scientists, that the world is 100% round, you can tell them there wrong. hmm

Instead of wasting your time with this retarded little cult that clearly know themselfs that there wrong, because the faq makes no sense in the least bit, go out, get a life and start facing the facts.

The unit of time, the second, was defined originally as the fraction 1/86 400 of the mean solar day. The exact definition of "mean solar day" was left to astronomical theories.

OK, so the second has since been redefined based on the cesium atom.   ::)

Well, I'm assuming he means a solar day. If he meant a sidereal day (which is irrelevant in this context), then I concede that he was correct.

The second statement is out dated.  Big whoop. 

The first statement is correct, however.  The difference between solar and sidereal days being the reference point at which the earth's rotation about its axis is measured.  Notice, the first statement said nothing about how much rotation defines a day.

A solar day is not only defined by the Earth's rotational period, but also its orbital period.

center. you made this mistake 3 times. we're you nervous per chance?

I can't see thru the center of the Earth, neither can you or anyone else, we can only see the surface, how about you try this again; with your left index finger find the waxing crescent and hold it to the screen of your computer, try to remain steady in performing this exercise, with your right index finger point to the dark side of the Earth (preferably the mid-night hour), now, would anyone living where your right finger is pointing see the waxing crescent where your left finger is?

This is exactly what you would expect to see according to RET. Are you claiming something different is what we actually observe?

The Moon doesn't get smaller it remains the same dimension, the light decreases is what you mean and the portion of the Earth also remains the same. The reason why the new Moon is seen in the day, is because on that phase it receives the light from the Sun.

1Enoch.72:[1]After this law I beheld another law of an inferior luminary, the name of which is the moon, [2]Its chariot, which it secretly ascends, the wind blows; and light is given to it by measure. [3]Every month at its exit and entrance it becomes changed; [4]Thus it rises, and at its commencement towards the east goes forth for thirty days. [5]At that time it appears, and becomes to you the beginning of the month. [6]Half of it is in extent seven portions, one half; and the whole of its orb is void of light, except a seventh portion out of the fourteen portions of its light. And in a day it receives a seventh portion, or half that portion, of its light. [7]And when the sun rises, the moon rises with it; receiving half a portion of light. [8]On that night, when it commences its period, previously to the day of the month, the moon sets with the sun.

And in a day it receives a seventh portion, or half that portion, of its light. 1/2 portion
+
And when the sun rises, the moon rises with it; receiving half a portion of light. 1/2 portion

2 halves make it whole.

1Enoch.77:[14]And when it is wholly extinguished, its light is consumed in heaven; and on the first day it is called the new moon, for on that day light is received into it.

This is why the new Moon rises with the Sun, the Moon receives the light from Heaven. Face it, science took us for a ride, I'm getting off this merry-go-round....

Most of the world spells it "centre". Only Americans use the spelling "center". However, as far as I'm aware, nobody spells "were" with an apostrophe unless it's a contraction of "we are".

A day is how long the Earth makes one rotation.

A year is how long it takes the Earth to complete an orbit. It only happens to consist of 364 days.

If a day was twice as fast, a year won't go twice as fast, it'd only be considered 728 days.

Uh, no. A day (in the sense that the word is most commonly used - that is, a solar day) is the time it takes for the Earth to rotate such that the Sun has the same right ascension from any point on the Earth's surface. This is slightly longer than the time taken for a full rotation, because of the fact that the Earth is orbiting the Sun as it rotates.

A year is equal to approximately 365.2425 solar days. I have no idea where you got 364 from.
