Who knows the answer to this one RE: METEOROLOGY
Question:

Why isn't Meteorology called Weatherology?


Doesn't it seem like Meteorology would be the study of meteors?

"What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal."
-Albert Pike

• The smallest good deed is better than the grandest good intention. •

“Your Majesty, please… I don’t like to complain,
But down here below, we are feeling great pain.
I know, up on top you are seeing great sights,
But down here at the bottom we, too, should have rights.
We turtles can’t stand it. Our shells will all crack!
Besides, we need food. We are starving!” groaned Mack.

“You hush up your mouth!” howled the mighty King Yertle.
“You’ve no right to talk to the world’s highest turtle.
I rule from the clouds! Over land! Over sea!
There’s nothing, no, NOTHING, that’s higher than me!”

 Quoting: Tatlantis

The word was coined way before there was an English language.
It dates back to at least Aristotle.

Only the Dutch are arrogant and non-classical enough to invent and use their own terms for things that already were named thousands of years before.

 Quoting: Tatlantis

Meteorology means the study of things high in the sky, which is why meteors are called meteors in the first place.
