When I write how constellations prove earth is stationary, a globe defender usually responds with, “But the stars are really far away.”
I’m not sure how this would enable us to see stars that are behind us. The stars would be on the other side of the globe earth, if we were orbiting the sun.
But let’s start with the embedded assumption:
Stars are far away. Says who? And why would they say that? Light years and trillions of miles are a hoax to support the idea that the universe is unfathomably huge. They want us to think we are a tiny speck in a vast universe. But there’s no evidence for that. They made up the numbers of the distances to the stars, and globers repeat those numbers without questioning.
When you look up information on constellations and stars, you have to wade through pages of disinformation about how old the star is, and how far away it is. It’s all conjecture at best, and a deliberate lie at worst.
Most of us bought the idea of far-away stars without much thought. But lately telescopic lenses have fallen into the hands of truth-seekers. And we can zoom in on stars.
And when we do, we discover 1) they look like twinkly lights, 2) they are colorful, and 3) they look like electrical energy reflecting through water.
The Nikon P900, 1000, and similar cameras with telescopic lenses have brought us a long way towards understanding stars. But even without these images available to us, if we were simply to observe stars with the naked eye, would we think stars are trillions of miles away? The whole idea is absurd. We’ve been told they are far away, through indoctrination, but there’s no evidence to support it.
Stars are lights in the sky, just as they appear to be. Some have investigated whether they are sonoluminescent (activated sound) and/or electromagnetic. What we observe of stars leads us to think they are close, not far.
