What do celestial bodies have to do with time "flowing" ?

I did say
In your pipe dreams it's a non sequitur. See what happens to Time if the earth were to stand still!

Speaking about dense. You tell us what happens to time if the earth stood still.

Not only avoid logic, but science and physics as well

And please answer this...Klaatu barada nikto

Here watch what happens the day......

Wow! The wanna-be resident science genius is stumped! Who would have ever thought?

I'll tell you what: Let's ask the "real science genius" on this forum: Earth calling Actor. Do you copy, Actor?

Mr. Actor, sir, what would happen if this little ol' earthy ball stopped spinning dead in its tracks? Would anything good come from that?

Bunky you tell us what happens to time when the earth stands still, not all the physical problems.

We are aware of those things. We are not aware of what happens to time. Enlighten us Mr Expert

You have already rejected the scientific view of time. So what's the point?

If you're aware of "all the physical problems", why don't you tell us what happens to Time? Is there a good outcome to the earth standing still!?

Tell us. No one but you thinks this means anything.

You're the one who doubts Time moves. You're so obstinate that if you owned a sundial, you would not believe your eyes as you watched the shadow move.

So, you're implying by above comments that planet earth would survive just fine -- that Time here on earth would continue as usual, correct? Nothing would happen to Time here on earth, right?

You have lost it. You forgot I asked to prove time "flows." not moves.

Let's drop time before you embarrass yourself further. If that is even possible.

Amazing in only 6 or 7 posts in a brand new thread, you go into your ass backwards song and dance about time. Again

Here's something really interesting.

Because of the finite speed of light*, when you gaze up into the night sky, you are looking into the past. The bright star Sirius is 8.6 light years away. That means the light hitting your eye tonight has been traveling for 8.6 years. Put another way: When you look at Sirius tonight, you see it as it was 8.6 years ago.

In my brilliant analogy of fishing in a flowing stream, do you think the stream flows because it's moving?

The very first two definitions in my W-W for the verb "flow" are these:

1 a (1) : to issue or MOVE in a stream (2) : CIRCULATE b : to MOVE with a continual change of place among the constituent particles *molasses flows slowly*

It's incredible just how slowly your mind moves -- kinda like molasses flowing up Mt Kilamanjaro in the dead of winter.

So...now that defeated you in your stupid and desperate game of semantics, let's get back to a spinless earth. How would that work out for this planet if it stopped spinning suddenly? Good? Poorly? Very Poorly? Extremely Bad? Or you just don't know?

No, it doesn't make me wonder. I know how it will end.

Now, permit me to return the favor of good advice: Quit posting predictions after you tell us that nobody knows "when" in one breath but then give us a number for "when" in the next. One could get the impression you're talking out of both sides of your mouth. We already have enough partcipants in this thread doing that without your company.

Nobody knows when the end will come, but the sun goes to a red giant in five billion years. I'm thinking that might just be the time to start worrying about the end.
