Buy equator, sell poles

In an article from Cornell University, a lady astronomer tells us that centrifugal force caused by the rotation of the earth would make a weight at the pole to be 0.5% less on the equator. 200 pounds at the poles would be 199 at the equator. I wonder if anyone has actually done an experiment to see if the math works.

Seems like this would violate any standard of weights and measures. Something in Alaska would weigh more than the same thing in the U. S. Virgin Islands. Is this really true? Does an ingot of aluminum weighing 200 pounds at the poles only weigh 199 pounds at the equator? Or is somebody pulling our leg? I can’t find anything about it in the National Bureau of Standards publication on calibration of weighing devices.

The standard of weight would have to be used at the poles or the equator, and no difference could be determined. There is no way to do an experiment. The statement that weights are different is essentially meaningless.

Electric fossilization

“The piece was pure clear silica inside. It was covered with a rougher opaque crust of partially fused sand. The tree, whose stump was petrified, was alive five years ago! After the tree was cut down to accommodate the right of way for a new power transmission line, an accidental break allowed the high-voltage wire to contact several tree stumps still in the ground. The power was shut off within hours of the break. All of the tree roots which contacted the broken wire were fossilized.”

Humans with dinosaurs

The Taylor trail area of dinosaur and human footprints, as shown on the website of Dinosaur Valley State Park.

The Taylor trail of human footprints with dinosaurs is usually under water and is filled in with silt. No attempt is made to preserve it, and nothing in the state park leads to it or marks where it is. It is only preserved by exhibits in the local Creation Evidence Museum, and this overlay which conveys the impression that all prints are dinosaurian.

This is an analysis of 14 prints in the trail, which I think refers to the trail starting at the lower right and going to the left upward at about 20 degrees from horizontal. It was done by Dr. Don Patton, whose degree is in education with undergraduate work in geology.

One of the prints, -3B, is preserved as a copy in an exhibit in the creation museum. This is the one that was said to have been destroyed by pro-evolution zealots, so there would not be evidence to support doubt of the atheistic religion that says that dirt did magic and turned itself into people over millions of years. We see that humans often stepped in dinosaur prints rather than in the deep mud, and multiple dinosaurs often stepped in one track for the same reason.

There is no way for these prints to exist if one presupposes that man evolved from an apelike ancestor, which did not arise until long after the dinosaurs died out. They simply cannot exist, so they are ignored or explained away rather than looking at the evidence and reevaluating the dogma.  The dogma of evolution as the final answer about the origin of humans disproves any and all evidence that shows that it is false, rather than the evidence disproving the dogma.

We see this logical fallacy, called “affirming the consequent,” often in the scientific establishment. It is why bloodletting was used as a common treatment for disease as late as the eighteenth century. Bloodletting persisted into the 20th century and was recommended by Sir William Osler in the 1923 edition of his textbook The Principles and Practice of Medicine.
