You know best.
Seriously, I know little of the science behind the theory of gravitation.
I do have training in fossil man, human races, osteology, radiocarbon dating, and several related fields. I prefer to limit my comments to those fields in which I have some personal knowledge.
Let’s give it a try. It’s all “science,” right? If I remember from school, “the past is the key to the future.” Forgive me for putting words into your mouth, but I suspect your own position would be that a pencil, if dropped tomorrow, would “fall down.” I suspect that your answer would be the same if it happened next week. In fact, your answer probably would be the same regardless of the time it happened (assuming, of course, we’re on earth and not in space).
Have I got it right? Or, have I messed up? Is it possible that you think a pencil could fall UP rather than down? Thanks for humoring me.
I see you didn’t list religion as one of your expert fields. That means you don’t see or know the BIG picture. But that has been recognized by many on this site as looking thru the wrong end of the telescope.
