A SciManDan video critiquing MrThrive and Survive's video for absolute proof space is fake. More pressure gradient force nonsense.

I watched the SciManDan video, but that was enough for me to understand the ThriveandSurvive is real willfully ignorant individual.

The only youtube I've found dumber than the one Sciman Dan was critiquing was the guy who thought the blue rock he found is a piece of the firmament.

They must have been suspended / banned from one of the other forums where they were spamming.

Yes. If one finds oneself adopting extreme positions simply because one enjoys the attention it garners, then it is clearly time to reassess ones life.

I struggle to understand the thinking of many cranks. A few seem genuinely simply misinformed. Sure that happens sometimes.

But the overwhelming majority have religious fervour about their commitment to a false idea.

To me, that is deeply disturbing.

You know how if you hold the end of an inflated balloon, and then let go, that it will accelerate forward?

What do these people think will happen if you do that in space?

Perhaps, but it could be simpler than this. I suspect that most conspiracy theorists and holders of crackpot theories are simply unable to bear the realization that they're ignorant. What better way to rise above that than to find an idea which, if right, would make you one of the wisest people ever? Once you latch on to it, everything, including opposition, can serve as evidence in your favor. If all the rest of us are deluded fools, our disdain is further proof. Just you wait, sheeple.

No doubt some who do this sort of thing are just trolls or jokers passing the time, but I rather suspect that a fair number are really just persons so ill at ease in reality that they're playing an adult variation on the unhappy child's fantasy of the kidnapped princess.

I think they're terrified of being wrong or being conned. After all, we rational mainstreamers are the sheep; they are too smart to fall for government propaganda. That, combined with ignorance and arrogance, just about covers it.

The Space Station Crosses a Spotless Sun
Quote:
Explanation: That's no sunspot. It's the International Space Station (ISS) caught passing in front of the Sun. Sunspots, individually, have a dark central umbra, a lighter surrounding penumbra, and no solar panels. By contrast, the ISS is a complex and multi-spired mechanism, one of the largest and most sophisticated machines ever created by humanity. Also, sunspots occur on the Sun, whereas the ISS orbits the Earth. Transiting the Sun is not very unusual for the ISS, which orbits the Earth about every 90 minutes, but getting one's timing and equipment just right for a great image is rare. Strangely, besides that fake spot, in this recent two-image composite, the Sun lacked any real sunspots. The featured picture combines two images -- one capturing the space station transiting the Sun -- and another taken consecutively capturing details of the Sun's surface. Sunspots have been rare on the Sun since the dawn of the current Solar Minimum, a period of low solar activity. For reasons not yet fully understood, the number of sunspots occurring during both the previous and current solar minima have been unusually low.

It is not only the 50th anniversary it is also the 50th anniversary of The New York Times apologizing for their 1920 editorial claiming rockets couldn't work in a vacuum, at least when faced with the facts the Times had the good grace to admit they were wrong

Well, GV is, I assert, two dogs in a trench coat typing by banging the edge of a fedora on a keyboard. It's possible one of them is undergoing worm treatment and as a result the other can't REACH the keyboard.

I have just as much verifiable evidence for this assertion as GV has that rockets don't work in the vacuum of space.

If they can't be loved, they want to be respected.
If they can't be respected, they want to be feared.
If they can't be feared, they want to be despised.

Anything to not be ignored.
