I see what you are saying

If that's what they meant, cool. Just an error in sentence structure.

You may be interested to know that WASP-17b is a planet that appears to orbit in the opposite direction of its star's rotation.

This exception, along with the backward rotation of some of the planets and satellites in our own solar system, throw a monkey wrench into the solar system formation theory. Maybe it's a great theory. I don't know. But it's not something we have proven.

Hear, O Israel: YHUH our God YHUH one. And thou shalt love YHUH thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

It wasn't a sentence structure error, it was a reading comprehension error on your part.

"This exception, along with the backward rotation of some of the planets and satellites in our own solar system, throw a monkey wrench into the solar system formation theory."

Planets having different rotation on their axis do not throw a "monkey wrench into the solar system formation theory". As you stated WASP-17b is the only planet known thought to have a retrograde orbital rotation. And that doesn't throw a "monkey wrench" into the theory either as there are explanations that fit into the theory that explain how that could be, especially with it being an exoplanet.
I respect your skepticism, but I think if you did know more about the theory and astronomy you might change your mind.

I just read

"In one study more than half of all the known hot Jupiters had orbits that were misaligned with the rotation axis of their parent stars, with six having backwards orbits.[2]

WASP-17b was the first exoplanet that was discovered to be orbiting its star opposite to the direction the star is rotating.[17] A second such planet was announced just a day later: HAT-P-7b.[18] "

Reading comprehension error? Maybe. Wouldn't be the first time.

Or maybe they just used the wrong word. They said "rotate" when "orbit" would have been more clear. But then that sentence would be redundant. You can draw your own conclusions there.

This little light of mine...

I believe the Electric Universe makes this amazing fact even more incredible... Not only are we stardust, but we are STILL energetically connected to our star.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Quantum Physics

pretty much explains it all.

I'm not so sure about that.

The big picture puts things into perspective.

Sort of makes supposedly important things meaningless.

However, is this what the NWO wants us to think? They obviously do not think about stuff like this. They want us to be distracted by anything and everything, like this piece's appeal to noble mankind, so that they can continue to either kill us or enslave us as they take over the world. If we are all in FEMA Camps one day, thinking such sublime thoughts as the universe being in us would also be meaningless.

Sorry about raining on your very well intentioned video. It's just the mood I'm in at the moment.

i had this on my favortites for a while now

The only thing more amazing then this fact is the sheer size of the universe. Billions of other civilizations are trying to figure out the universe just as we are.

Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.

billions or none

We will likely never know. The universe is so vast and so ancient that billions of civilizations may well have come and gone before ours. If there were only four people on this planet each one could be convinced that he is alone, and for all practical purposes he'd be right.
