Happy hunting. I know it's a lot of listening and reading. I did it 2-3 months ago.
 Quoting: mclarek 971744


You seem to have missed my point in offering those pages. YOU mentioned 2002 images which were somewhat compelling for you. I assumed you were talking about Nancy's 2002 imaging episode. I even asked you what OTHER 2002 images you might have been talking about. You didn't respond.

The POINT of those pages about Nancy's images was that she wholely misrepresented what was found in the images. No new planet or object of any kind was found at Nancy's coordinates, yet she skewed; distorted; misrepresented; falsified, and outright lied about the images. To this DAY Nancy claims that PX was imaged at her coordinates via those images. Her claim on that is demonstrably false.

This is how it has gone with every single astronomical claim Nancy has ever made and the 'evidence' she uses to uphold her claims. It's all FAKE!

ALL of it, Clare. Let me repeat it for you. Nancy's 'evidence' IS... ALL... FAKE...

ALLLLLLLLLLLL of it.

Get it? YET?

As to the rotation, you idiot! The Moon is still not rotating on its own axis -- spin!

It is on a rotation around the earth
 Quoting: mclarek 971744


No, that is called an 'orbit' or 'revolution'.

-- my image was correct of a doll on a pole, rotating around your waist in its own speed, while you rotate on your own axis more quickly.

 Quoting: mclarek 971744


Huh? No, those two objects, you and the doll, are rotating at exactly the same speed.

Relative to the earth's centre, it rotates, instead of staying always over the same spot of the earth.
 Quoting: mclarek 971744


Huh? Why don't you stop pretending to know more than you really know about this? Your statement doesn't even make sense.

Nancy didn't know this finer point, but her points as I witnessed them were due to talking of spinning on an axis anyway.

Gee, you guys do insist on specific knowledge when it's actually irrelevant to the point she was making.
 Quoting: mclarek 971744


No, the point Nancy was making is that ignorant Humans don't know as much as 300IQ "Zetas". To that end, she contrived this silliness about the Moon NOT ROTATING. It was pointed out to her that the Moon rotates once for each revolution around Earth, but she denied that was true and got nasty about it.

Anyway,
Good night.


You are wrong, Clare. This is exactly why I didn't let it drop. The Moon *IS* rotating ON ITS OWN AXIS. Why do you think it is not? What axis do you imagine it *IS* rotating on??

I already offered this thought exercise for you to ponder, but you 'overlooked' it. Let's try again:

What motions would the Moon display if Earth suddenly went missing? Would the Moon THEN be rotating ON ITS OWN AXIS? Why, or why not?

Sorry for butting in here, Dr P.

And DON'T misinterpret me in my last post: when I said you insist on specific information inappropriately I didn't mean that insisting on it IN PRINCIPLE is bad, just to miss a point being made because something ancillary to the point is wrong, is idiotic.

Correct her on the Moon, yes (or try! -- I think she doesn't get this image clear in her mind about rotation relative to our axis) ... but don't conflate it with the point she was still making, about the Moon on its own polar or self-referential axis, which does not rotate.
 Quoting: mclarek 971744


YES, IT DOES!

In total, it has spun and its axis over space will turn, but not ON THE SPOT within its orbit as the Earth does.
 Quoting: mclarek 971744


Huh? How can Earth be orbiting, yet still be on a 'spot'?

That's the point.

Indeed. And the sun telescope for $499 I linked is not much more expensive as a digital camera. If I was really convinced that Planet X might be existing and that I could detect it with such a telescope I certainly would buy one. I bet these $499 were easily paid of by the selling of her book and video and/or the non-profit funting she received back in the days.
But your right of course ... Nancy and her true believers have no interest whatsoever to really research what is there and what not. They are just addicted to get some more doom&gloom shoved down their throats by Nancy.

Don't ya think?

Isn't specific knowledge a little better than Nancy and the zeta crap?

Where does one draw the line between reality and common sense and pure fantasy and lies?

Clare, seriously,, pull your head out of Nancy's (zetas) ass and think.

Do research. it isn't hard to do. Once you pull your head out of Nancy (zeta) ass and then you might start to think.
 Quoting: tater nli 974835


It has been clear all along that I don't follow Nancy verbatim.

Besides that, if a point raised *has nothing to do with a question*, it does show an error in the speaker, but not their point.

It also (in this case) shows either that DrPostman on this issue either doesn't understand the difference physically (and in scientific theory) between a body which rotates on its own axis AND a picayune misunderstanding of a speaker (Nancy), OR it just shows he is being picayune, period and misunderstood "spin on its own axis" to mean "has any rotation, which puts the body into different positions relative to its axis".

In the former it's a lack of understanding and an unwillingness (or inability) to be careful to understand Nancy herself in her intent,
... and in the latter it indicates that he misunderstood what the point of the statement was.

Either way, I should not have called him an idiot, in being impolite to him. However, the general tone here is so nasty, when I saw that, I had a moment of sinking to the level of some of the people here.

Note: not all are like that.
And no-one HAS to be like that.

So anyway, sorry to Dr Postman for not merely saying he's being idiotic, but calling him an idiot in that moment.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 795135


No, it's still NOT ON ITS OWN AXIS.

Are you people so confused by the diagram which shows the overall ORIENTATION of the Moon as it sins in an orbit around the Earth?

It does actually have an orbit; it moves in progression. But STATIC in its own axis regarding spin.

Do you not see in the image the Moon face is always consistent?

This would be as if the Earth always faced the Sun with North America ... but over the whole orbit, yes, the Moon faces different directions relative to the Sun. This is relative to the a map of space where one direction was listed "N" (not true north as you can see in the little diagram, for north is irrelevant when we are looking down -- that would be the North pole straight down, but the "N" in the diagram is at the top of the diagram, to indicate an orientation FOR THE DIAGRAM).

Do you not understand that Nancy made the mistake that it didn't have its own forward motion relative to the Earth (a true, slow orbit ofo the Earth), versus the issue of spin on its OWN axis?

Imagine a ping-pong ball on a string: it does not spin on its axis as you swing your body around in order to spin together. This is not the Moon, but it is the issue of axis of the Moon. Now imagine you could pass it between your arms and achieve its own forward spin relative to you spinning. That is what the Moon does: a forward-motion orbit, not fixed relative to a Point in the Earth, but STILL NO SPIN.

We NEVER see the "Dark Side of the Moon" -- which is sometimes LIT (during what WE class the the "Dark Moon" of the month). The "Dark Side of the Moon" is "dark" to our direct VIEW (knowledge, except in modern probes). Kind of like the "Dark Ages". It means those ages left few records, are hard to know.

So, it FACES us, with a slight perceptual shift called Lunar Libration, which is due to the fact it actually creates a cris-cross orbit over time, like the imaginal pin-pong ball if we lowered it slightly and raised it as it spun around us as we spin too, at a much faster rate than it.

BUT STILL NO SPIN ON ITS AXIS.

The orientation overall of the Moon, relative to the Sun does change, for the Moon. And THIS is what the chart is showing, which you somehow have interpreted as the Moon's OWN spin.

YIKES!

How are we going to get to the issues around electromagnetism and PX and NASA and discovery if we can't get this part straight? I know we are ALL learning here, but really, this is not a "factoid" fact which someone could know or not have heard of. This is a clear item about the Moon which EVERYONE knows. Does it show multiple faces? NO. It shows a slight different viewpoint in Libration, but it does not SPIN/rotate (its own axis), it ORBITS/rotates on an axis centred in the Earth. Yes, it is at a different rate than the Earth so it truly is an ORBIT, not just a fixed orbital position. But it doesn't SPIN itself.

 Quoting: mclarek 971744


Yes, it most absolutely is. If you stood at the north pole of the moon and looked directly overhead at the sky, what would it appear to do over a 29 day span?

Also, would you say the moon was not rotating on its axis if it's rotation period was 10 days and we saw both "sides" of it every couple of weeks? Or if it were rotating every 40 days and again we saw all sides of it? Why is it that you think it doesn't rotate just becuase its period of rotation is 29 days?

And, you have the reason for libration wrong as well. The moon's orbit around the earth is an ellipse, not a circle. Since it travels at a roughly constant speed in its orbit, we get to peek around the sides a bit over its cycle since for parts of that ellipse, it's orbital speed is NOT completely synchronous and the moon SPINNING ON ITS OWN AXIS is a bit too fast or too slow and shows us a bit more of one side and then the other. If its orbit were perfectly circular, there would be no libration.

Also, your idea that the earth spins "on a spot" is not correct either. It rotates around the barycenter of the earth/moon system, which is NOT at the earth's center but off to one side towards where the moon is. So, if you were to look at teh earth's orbit around the sun from "overhead", it would appear to trace a sine wave along it's circular path. The sun exhibits this same action because of the mass of Jupiter. That's how we detect planets orbiting around distant stars...by tracing the proper motion of the star and doing a fourier transform on its motion to calculate how many and what mass planets are orbiting it.

You REALLY need to bone up on your Astronomy 101.

In fact, our Moon isn't a Moon at all, for it is too massive. We are, more accurately, a double planet system, and the Moon and Earth both fall toward the Sun. The Moon does NOT orbit the Earth's center of mass.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 882391

Nothing truly orbits the center of mass of anything else, everything has a barycenter, so by that definition there's no such thing as a moon. The barycenter of the earth-moon system is below the earth's surface, so by any reasonable definition it is our moon.

No, it's still NOT ON ITS OWN AXIS.

Are you people so confused by the diagram which shows the overall ORIENTATION of the Moon as it sins in an orbit around the Earth?
 Quoting: mclarek 971744

No matter how much you shout you're still wrong. The moon's orientation with respect to earth is irrelevant. The moon rotates on its axis once per orbit around its parent body earth. That means it rotates on its axis. The only frame of reference that matters when determining the presence or absence of rotation of a body in space is rotation with respect to the stars. The moon most certainly rotates about its axis with respect to the stars. How you can fail to understand this without being a total zetatard is beyond me.
