So I guess you'll have to find out when you die that the difference between planets and stars is so inconsequential and minute, it's not even worth arguing about.
I fail at basic astronomy, but that doesn't matter cuz' you're so gonna burn in hell, nyah!

Carico HAS to be a Poe. I mean, honestly. A person that dumb would forget how to breathe while trying to remember their first name and suffocate.

Earth = planet
Sun = star
Big fucking difference, dipshit.
2/13/2009 11:27:02 PM
Actually, Carico, you're probably right. Now go live on a star.
2/13/2009 11:27:53 PM
OK that confirms it. You're definitely insane.
2/13/2009 11:31:04 PM
Okay Carico, let's learn something:

Two in a row from Carico, and on Friday the 13th. Bad luck I guess.

monumental science fail
2/13/2009 11:39:36 PM
Carico, bonkers as ever. Too dumb to survive, really.
2/13/2009 11:44:28 PM
Seriously woman. How do you manage to dress yourself in the morning without killing yourself?

[To be honest, I doubt it. I know of no observations that show apes of any sort other than humans keeping track of the sky for calendrical/religious purposes, which is, if I recall, how other planets were discovered to begin with. I would suspect they may be able to use the sun to navigate, however (apes tend to be diurnal), much like many other animals.]
It's not hard to criticize you Carico. You know absolutely nothing, like that a star is thousands+ of times bigger than even a very large planet.
Carico FTT: "Sorry, but look on the web and see that there is confusion in today's society about whether the sun rotates around the earth as well. After all, motion is relative to stationary objects. But if both objects are moving, especially if we are living on a moving or rotating object, then it's difficult to determine if the sun is moving or not."
The sun is stationary RELATIVE TO US. It's like being on a teacup ride: each cup can spin or not, and a small set of them rotate on a disk around a common center. The center is like the sun, the cup is like the earth. THEN the center of those rotating disks is rotating around another center. Both the "sun" and the "earth" are moving, but it is not confusing to determine what is rotating around what else.
The confusion you cite is not mainstream. The sun-centered fact has been suspected since long before Copernicus, and there is of course evidence for it (like being able to calculate the positions of the planets accurately far in advance).
I'm not going to go through the whole thread, but this is just too much:
"Sorry but you need to read Christ's parables. The parable itself is alway true and so is the spiritual meaning behind it. If the parable itself were not true, then the meaning behind it couldn't be true either. So read Christ's parables next time before you post."
A parable does not have to be true. It doesn't even have to be plausible, though I'm sure that helps drive the message home better.

If I only had a rocket capable of reaching the sun....

"The confusion you cite is not mainstream. The sun-centered fact has been suspected since long before Copernicus, and there is of course evidence for it (like being able to calculate the positions of the planets accurately far in advance)."
However, Copernicus was the first to use a sun-centered model of the solar system to calculate those planetary positions -- and his calculations were no more accurate than the earlier ones based on the Ptolemaic (Earth-centered) model.
It wasn't until Kepler that a sun-centered model of the solar system was used to predict planetary positions with greater
accuracy than an Earth-centered model.

Tell me that while you're living on the sun.
2/14/2009 1:07:01 AM
a few several orders of magnitude in diameter and temperature between friends?
2/14/2009 1:14:49 AM
How can Carico still exist? I thought his/her amount of stupidity would have been fatal by now?
2/14/2009 1:15:28 AM
Oh yeah? Oh yeah? So how come we call some people movie stars and not movie planets?
2/14/2009 2:23:20 AM
A chimpanzee is smart enough to recognize itself in the mirror, and know it's not another chimp. That said, if chimps are told about Carico, they'll be pissed she's in the same class and order as them.
"She's a primate? I thought she was a garden slug!"

i guess carico subscribes to the "light in a firmament" belief. in that case, yes, the difference between stars and planets would be negligible, as they are both lights.
but that aside, MASSIVE ASTRONOMY FAIL

This makes no sense. So instead of a meaningful post, I instead supply this gif I just found:

Translation: anything that disproves my half-assed whackadoo ideas is inconsequential and minute.
