Love that!

"My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me. ... That is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave." - General Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson

The moon has a path that is visible from the surface of Earth.

No telling how far out it is, nor how large it is.

The problem is, the scale of what I find on the surface doesn't MATCH the distances and dimensions that are given.

But the path, as seen from the surface is a stable constant, so stable in fact, that it can be imitated, matched or overwritten.

What is unfortunate is that Deceit rules Science.

Why? So scientists can renew their grants, which are dominated by political correctness in this NOT-SEE Fascist system.

Like I said to you before, go to a ham radio club that does eme bouncing. You can see for yourself how far away the moon is. I have.

Not to mention that the Greeks were able to determine the distance to the Moon and Sun using simple geometry. Looks like some of these people are 2000 years behind the times.
