Did you read the entire post?

BTW, I am with you, but you have to admit they have much better equipment now than they did. They can give us much better wrong forecasts than ever before.

Weather forecasting.

Here is how it works.

When they say 60% chance of rain, that means that when the temperature, humidity, etc. were exactly like they are now, 60% of the time it rained, 40% it didn’t.

If you ask them WHY?, you will get this answer.

They have no idea.

We consider ourself very smart, and in control of our environment. Yet....

We know there is gravity, yet we don’t know ‘how’ it really works.

We know there is magnetism, yet we don’t know ‘how’ it really works.

(Both of these are forces that can exhibit a pull or push on another object without making contact. Yet we insist that ‘telekinetics’ doesn’t exist.)

We thought lightning came from clouds and hit the Earth.
It’s not true. We are just starting to educate the public on the fact that lightning also goes on between the upper atmosphere and the edge of space.

We were taught that the continent are on these tectonic plates that move around and bang into each other, and that is what caused mountain ranges.

Absolutely not true. For it to be true, there would have to be huge gaps between the plates so they could move. In actuality the Earth is growing in size. Just use Google Earth and you can see the ‘stretch’ marks on the ocean floor. If you remove the vast areas of ocean floor you would notice that the continents will fit back together as one solid piece. That is why dinosaurs and other extremely large animals were able to exist, and pterodactyls fly, is because the Earth was smaller, and had less ‘gravity’.

The Earth is round. No it’s not. It is pumpkin shaped. It used to be more pear-shaped. It actually changes shape with the pull of gravity from the orbit of the moon. The entire surface of the Earth rises and falls, in a sense, as the moon makes it’s orbit.

The sea level is rising. Well, depends on where you check and how. On some continents it is rising on one coast, while getting lower on others. Measurement is difficult because of the tides. When the tide comes in, the beach actually rises, and conversely, when it goes out, the beach falls.

We don’t really know what the core of the Earth is made of, or how it works. A large amount of the Earth’s heat comes not from the Sun, but from the core.

What do we really know about the universe and how it works?
Very little.
