EPISODE #156

AIRED: 05-10-2019

Today we find out a few things about early astronomers and how they came to beLIEve what we have been told. And told. And told, again. Ad nauseum. Especially if you should be of a mindset to perhaps go about QUESTIONING what you’ve been told. The horror!! After all, this is settled scientism, guy!! Weren’t you TOLD?? Didn’t you LISTEN?? What say we look at just a few pertinent points about Ye Olde Stargazer Dudes, hm? Oh, that title? It comes from the first line of the story detailing all the star chaps: “You know, because you’ve been told, that the Earth revolves around the Sun.” Yeah, you cannot make this stuff up.
–Ptolemy was an astronomer and mathematician. He believed that the Earth was the center of the Universe. Even starting with this incorrect theory, he was able to combine what he saw of the stars’ movements with mathematics, especially geometry, to predict the movements of the planets. His famous work was called the Almagesti. In order to make his predictions true, he worked out that the planets must move in epicycles, smaller circles, and the Earth itself moved along an equant. None of this was true, but it made the math work for his predictions. This flawed view of the Universe was accepted for many centuries.
–Aristotle believed in a geocentric Universe and that the planets and stars were perfect spheres though Earth itself was not.
— Galileo devised a telescope that could enlarge objects up to 20 times. Up to 20 times. 20. times. He was able to use this telescope to prove the truth of the Copernican system of heliocentrism. So, yeah.
–Our buddy Horry Sheet calls in to tell us about his latest project to accompany his FE TV Guide: Tiny URLs for all the great FE folks out there doing good work!! Go go, Horry!! If you want to be included in the FE TV Guide, email [email protected]
–Longtime show friend Brian Gasca calls in as well to blame IRM for making him fall off the ball!!
–Now that you have had a nice salad of space lettuce as a starter, may we suggest some space pasta?? SATURN’S RINGS ARE HIDING MOONS SHAPED LIKE FROZEN RAVIOLI. Because science!
–Wanna roll the dice on being an ASS-troll-naught??

Frenchman Étienne Bottineau invented the now-forgotten science that allowed ships to be seen that could not even be seen with a telescope. Bottineau’s explanation for his ability was fascinating (albeit extremely ambiguous): “Each boat produces “emanations” in the ocean. These emanations affect the transparency of the atmosphere. Therefore, meteorical effects [as he called them] are...

No, that show title is NOT just a portion of someone’s crypto seed. Nor is it some sort of word association psychotropic test. A shopping list for an alchemist, perhaps? I think that is getting closer to it! What is it? Science, of course! PLUS we find salad dressing for all the Space Lettuce!!!! –Today...

Thanx to Racer FE for the nudge to memory files, we play it today and realize that getting flat...
