No inconsistencies in our scientific understanding of comets in this post yet again !

Red Baron Farms wrote that ices and dust physically exist on comets as everyone knows! Red Baron Farms pointed out Sol88's seeming ignorance of English usage and logic. The post ends with the obvious fact of comets are not asteroids.

And yes - comets and asteroids are consistent with the nebula hypothesis so we can move along, nothing to see here!

A lie by quote mining Comets: looking ahead. Michael A’Hearn wrote that 67P is at least 17% ices (volatiles). The Deep Impact experiment shows that Tempel 1 is up to 50% water ices. Michael A’Hearn wrote about ices and dust comets.
A spate of Sol88 lies, e.g. that comet nuclei cannot be ices and dust because textbook plasma physics exists!

Irrelevant paranoia? about scientists and a "cushy number" being threatened.

Sol88 tries to derail into the irrelevant "electric comet" Thunderbolts cult dogma. For lurkers, Soll8's obsession with the demented electric comet dogma has been explained for many years in another thread.
Sol88 mentions Don Scott: A summary of Donald Scott's EU delusions supplied from Sol88's posts in a another thread.

Yes Sol, consistent.

correct. No need for sarcasm. It is consistent with the nebular collapse hypothesis. So that answers the thread question. QED


If you wish to falsify the nebular collapse hypothesis with evidence from comets, you would need to find inconsistencies. You haven't. Neither has anyone else so far.

It does bring up something interesting though. It seems the evidence from comets does seem to find inconsistencies in the electric comet theory, thus falsifying that! QED

So you are absolutely correct, nothing to see here and yes I will happily move along. Nothing new in this thread. pity

Seems to me that it is all going swimmingly. And new data is being added to models. This is what science is about - discovery, and using those discoveries to fine tune our understanding of how things work. As opposed to making **** up based on misinterpreted mythology.
