Earth's Moon and Sun

"The moon is roughly 240,000 miles away from the Earth and has a diameter of 2,160 miles. The Sun is 93 million miles away from the Earth and has a diameter of 864,000 miles. That's quite a distance and yet from our vantage point these two bodies appear THE EXACT SAME SIZE IN THE SKY. Notice that in order for this celestial harmony to happen, not two, but THREE heavenly bodies (Sun, Moon and Earth) need to be the exact distances away from one another. I ask you, men and women of rationale and reason, what is this more evidence of? Harmony, proportion, design, blueprints, an underlying intelligence OR is it more evidence of randomness, chaos, no intelligence, no design, or no blueprints? The Sun is 400 times larger than the Moon. That's pretty damn simple math. Not only is such a celestial marriage strong evidence for design in our solar system, but it is evidence of SIMPLE design. Can you multiply? Well, then congratulations, you have the intelligence and capability to understand universal construction." - Claudia Pavonis

I wouldn't call gravity inconsequential.

It certainly is necessary for this life bearing spaceship we call earth.

Electromagnetism is a billion

Electromagnetism is a billion billion billion times more powerful a force than gravity. Our earth is surrounded by a giant magnetic field which is in direct connection to the moon and the sun. We have this magnetic field because that's what happens when particles pass through an electric field. Our orbit in conjunction to other bodies in our solar system has everything to do with this, and very very little to do with gravity.

While gravity serves an important role over very short distances, it seriously needs to take a back seat in the weight of our scientific theory concerning the nuts and bolts of space and matter. In my opinion, its really time to file Stephen Hawking and the entire gravity-centric model of the universe into the "flat-earth" garbage can. Especially when you consider that gravity is most likely a magnetic process itself, just attuned to very tiny particles that while, they are nearly impossible to shield from because of their size, have very little impact on other matter in comparison to what I described above.

Ah..

...you must be checking out the Electric Universe theory as well? :) I am very intrigued by it and its possible explanations of some of the mythologies of various cultures, associated with the planets, as well as the geographical scarring, etc. we see on them.

From my own perspective, I've been rereading Genesis with the Saturn theory in mind; and I actually can envision how a literalist could still find compatibility with these ideas.

Interesting how EU seems to emphasize catastrophism rather than the usual bias towards uniformitarianism , resonating both with open-minded naturalists and theists.

Yes its fascinating stuff to

Yes its fascinating stuff to put it very lightly. Mind bending really. Ive always been so unsatisfied with these ideas about black holes, big bangs, singularities (WTF that's impossible) and dark matter. It all seemed so ... ridiculous. Now I know why the "scientists" pushing this crap are always on board with the climate change crowd.

Honestly delving into the Electric Universe was like a puzzle piece suddenly fitting into place. For the first time in a long time, I'm truly satisfied that science is on the right course and not delving into make-believe.

I'm also fascinated by the possibilities that such an alien sky with visible plasma filaments and electrical discharges between solar bodies could have had on early mythology. Its also somewhat intriguing to know that we really may not have a solid idea of just how old this whole thing is. The electric universe model really provides more questions than answers, but at least they are the right questions, and the answers given make sense. Truly make sense.

So wish I...

...could attend the Electric Universe conference down in New Mexico this year. March I think it is?
