Something new from the Joemeister:

I get it, you have no idea how science operates and you obviously don’t have a clue wrt extrapolation.
YOU have absolutely no evidence to support YOUR position. YOU can’t even produce a testable hypothesis for it. But good luck wallowing in your ignorance…


That's right - he spelt 'obviously' correctly! :)

Obviously you don’t have much of a physics background. And obviously all you have are “why” questions that 5 year olds ask.

Joe tries to explain the physics of orbiting bodies:

 
Quote
What happens when you stretch out a piece of fabric, say a bed sheet, and then put one heavy bowling ball on it and then try to get two much smaller marbles to stay a specified distance- relatively close- away from the bowling bowl?

You need a way to keep the bowling bowl from making too big of a dent, which is difficult to do wrt ONE heavy object. If the fabric is too tight the bowling ball will go all over the place.

Here is the best one so far:

You need a sun earth/ moon system to exist in isolation with the right rotation and revolution rate to allow for our existence. AND you need to keep the planet from falling into the sun.

So I tell him that a single planet rotating around a star will follow an elliptical trajectory and will not fall into the star. Basic Newtonian mechanics. Joe replies:

How does it stay away, oleg? Remember there is only that system in the entire universe.

Um.

Mercury has no moon, but doesn't fall into the sun.

Venus, likewise.

The moon - it has no moon of its own, but doesn't fall into the Earth.

Then there's Pluto and Charon. (Or is there a third one in that system?)

What does Joe suppose happens when the planets aren't all aligned on the same side of the sun?

Maybe this will help Joe.

Edit to add: I think something like question 4 is what has Joe so confused...

Over on his blog, Untelligent Reasoning, Joe is lamenting that modern science cannot replicate in its lab process that take evolution millions of frikking years to accomplish. Why is that, one ponders?

Has anyone mentioned to Joe that the Moon is robbing the Earth of rotational energy and as a consequence is slipping farther and farther away?

That'll make him go ballistic.

As Joe is selectively misremembering / misrepresenting I'm going to do a quick synopsis of what happened:

1. Joe was opining about our 'privileged' planet
2. Many pointed out that we're not that privileged' and that better locations for discovery could easily exist
3. Joe then claimed even if that's so we're only slightly less privileged (!) for scientific discovery.
4. I pointed out that a simple system of one star like ours, one planet and one moon could support life and also the bulk of scientific discovery
5. Joe claimed (here comes the money shot!)

Obviously you don’t have much of a physics background. And obviously all you have are “why” questions that 5 year olds ask.

6. We all peed ourselves laughing at him
7. Oleg begins to teach Joe basic Physics
8. Joe claims that there is no way this system could exist.
9. I point out that he believes the actual universe which is far more complicated was created ex nihilo and these two position are irreconcilable.
10. Oleg continues to teach Joe Physics
11. Joe counters with

12. Our pants will never dry out at this rate!
13. Joe now claims that Oleg believes that the real universe only has one star, planet and moon. This was never suggested and is incredibly dishonest even by Joe's(!) standards.


Please edit and improve this rough draft, contributors.

Edited.
