Apparently on his planet they have stumble year instead of leap year.
Why justify an illegitimate attack with a legitimate response?

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.

centre?

center. you made this mistake 3 times. we're you nervous per chance?
Yes that's it. I'm scared of you. Oh hang on. No. I'm Australian.

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?
Okay, did you really think I wanted you to draw a line through the actual earth? Instead of your picture that I quoted in my post? Reread my post again, please.

And regarding your experiment, no-one would be able to see the crescent moons at midnight. Which is exactly how things are. What point are you trying to make?

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?

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.
You know I almost went back and corrected my use of the word "smaller" but I thought there is no way anyone would think I am actually claiming the moon decreases in size. My mistake.

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?
No.

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
What I don't know, is wtf you're talking about.

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 question is why are you wasting your time with this retarded little cult?

Like this:



As you can see, an observer at night can still see a cresent moon. However, the moon will be close to the horizon. This is what is seen:




(these images from are google image previews, so not sure if they'll stick around.)

NB: yes, I know "crescent" is spelled wrong.

I've been too busy exposing the lie's of your science, outside of holy scriptures I don't read much, GOD needs to keep me ignorant of fiction, science fiction, lol.

Just for future reference "lies" doesn't have an apostrophe.  Though perhaps God put it there while you weren't looking.  Oh, and God only has one capital letter, unless you're referring to generic gods, in which case no capitalisation is required (look, I spelled capitalisation without a 'z' - shall I be punished?).

That aside, I since that you only read holy scriptures, I presume that you are also fluent in ancient greek, as well as a number of hebrew/aramaic dialects, and latin too, so it's quite easy to see how you could make the mistake with all those extra languages confusing you.

Why does God need to keep you ignorant of science fiction... or of science OR fiction for that matter?  Is s/he worried that biblical logic is flawed.  But then, given that the "good book" advocates free will, isn't it simply you keeping yourself ignorant?  So I guess it's your own faith which is on shaky ground if you're afraid of it crumbling under the weight of a few simply proven principles.

On the topic, however, it is actually very easy to see how a night-time observer can see the crescent moon.  Take a couple of soccer balls and a light source and return to us when you've educated yourself.
