Questions on the Universe
Like my Post titled: Questions on Satellites, here is one on the cosmos. The purpose of these articles is to stimulate thinking and debate from people who believe in the heliocentric model of the universe. There are other questions that you may think of that you can add to this list but here are a few to get you started.
You might want to print this out when talking to a friend or copy-and-paste if you are emailing someone.
How can we still see the same constellations year after year if they are all traveling at the speed of light in their own directions?
How can we still have the same constellations that were recorded thousands of years ago?
How can we still have the “Big Dipper” after 4,000 years?
Wouldn’t that look more like a frying pan now?
Astronomers say that we have different size stars. What star can be so huge that it looks like a spotlight in space as big as a galaxy?
If this lighted area is not from a star, what is it from?
If this light area is as big as a galaxy, how can life exist within this brightness?
How can any planet exist without being burned up?
(Showing a picture of some galaxy to a friend that has a lighted area of violet, for example, ask a question based on the color.)
What produces the violet color?
(If your CGI picture has, for example, a pink cloud, ask a question based on this color. It’s always good to add a little humour in it, too. 🙂
What can produce this smoke or cloud that looks like it’s trillions of miles wide?
Can you imagine living in that pollution?
(Referring to the above picture.) What is all that dark junk in the picture? Whatever it is, it’s much bigger than any star or planet.
How can telescopes take pictures behind billions of other stars with their light? Wouldn’t that wash out the light that is closer to our view?
With trillions of planets, how can we see “behind” other stars?
The fact that we can see light from stars that are millions of light years away, how can it get here through a vacuum (that we are told space consists of)?
We are told that some of these pictures are really computer generated pictures, but why aren’t we told specifically which ones? And, if they are, how can we tell the difference? Since we can’t tell the difference – couldn’t they all be fake?
If any pictures are fake, what is the reason do you think for this?
