Podcast Episode 167: Modern Eclipse Lunacy, Part 2: Flat Earth

Eclipse lunacy,
This time from flat Earth folks, and
What they thought of it.

Returning to the series I started in September, we have modern eclipse lunacy, part 2, as discussed by flat Earth proponents. Part 3 should come later (well, obviously not earlier) and will be about the ideas espoused by Richard C. Hoagland as related to the solar eclipse from August.

Due to the lateness of this episode, I am really hoping that I can get another one out by Sunday. I leave for a trip Saturday night and will be gone through the following Sunday, so if I don’t at least get something written and recorded by the 18th, there won’t be an episode until after the 26th. I already have the topic, it’s going to be “Common (and False) Fine-Tuned Planet Beliefs, Discussed.” Surprisingly, this is NOT from young-Earth creationists, but rather from a UFOlogist, Whitley Strieber, that I recently heard him repeat on his internet radio program.

  3. Anthony Riley was saying the moon passes BEHIND the sun, blocking it out a few days ago. Oh, and that if you look reallllly hard at the sky from a veeeery dark site you can see the canals/w/w the lines holding everything together.

    The moonlight thing is that IR radiative cooling is greater to the open sky then to other nearby warm objects. It’s especially funny when they take IR images of shiny objects showing reflections of the background and say the moonlight/space side is cold when the covered/reflection of background is warm.
