A couple of questions
« on: January 02, 2007, 08:15:18 PM »
Ok if the Sun is a spotlight that is projected by NASA why does the earth no freeze over in the places it is not shining? What is creating our heat for the planet to be so liveable? Also if gravity does not exist why do we have clouds in the sky that drop rain?? Where does the rain come from???? And why are we not crashing into other planets.

Also why do objects fall from the sky and crash into the earth e.g. Meteors? how does something that big get up there in the first place????

The sun isn't created by NASA. When the FAQ says the sun is a 'spotlight', that is not to mean the sun is artificial. It is only a 'spotlight' in the sense that it is a fairly concentrated beam of light rather than a sphere emitting light in all directions.
Why doesn't the Earth freeze over? For the same reason it doesn't freeze over in RE; the sun visits every part of the Earth once a day, and the temperature doesn't drop low enough at night before the sun comes back to freeze over (except water and such).
We aren't crashing into planets because they are accelerating along with the Earth. This constant acceleration gives us our feeling of gravity.
Meteors are just rocks in the path of the Earth's acceleration. Some are accelerating more slowly than the Earth or even not at all, and so the Earth catches up to them. From our perspective, they fall down to Earth, but from the meteor's perspective, Earth rushes up to it.

The central issue here is that all of your questions are non-sequiturs.  There's no connection between NASA and the sun; there's no reason that parts of the Earth that are not getting direct sunlight should freeze; gravity doesn't cause rain (it causes it to fall, but not to exist in the first place); etc.
