Our Solar System

44 posts in this topic

For those who claim that "science" must be accompanied by repeatable experiments, do you doubt the existence of the planets in our solar system?   Man has never been to any other planet so, using your own standards, there is no proof they even exist.  The science behind the idea they exist is the same science behind the Cosmology, which according to some is not even a science. Do you all doubt that Mars and Mercury and Venus exist in the manner described by science, since there is no "proof"?

Just to be clear here, do these people you are referring to also believe that photos from probes are not reliable scientific evidence?

Many do not believe in Jesus Christ because they can not see Him so He does not exist.God created our universe.I believe that the planets exist.

A photo cannot be scientific evidence, a photo is just an observation, and observations do not equate scientific evidence to the ones I am speaking to.  In reality the only consistent point of view they could hold is that even the very existence of the planets cannot be proven scientifically, thus should not be spoken of in scientific terms.  But none of them will come out and admit to such.

As an Astronomy nut, I can assure you the planets exist.  They have been observed. I have seen Venus and Mars in the night sky and can tell the difference between them because Mars has a reddish hue and Venus is more yellow.  They do not blink like stars blink.  I have also seen these planets through a telescope. 

 

Now, as something that has not been observed, I don't believe the Oort Cloud exists and often use it as a source of defending Young Earth creationism.  This year Comet ISON made its first trip around the sun and died as it rounded the sun.  Most comets would do the same, so why do we still have comets if our solar system is billions of years old?  Well, scientists theorize there's an Oort Cloud outside of the solar system where most comets reside and are pulled in by gravity.  We have no seen this, yet it's taught as fact.  It cannot be scientifically proven to exist. 

 

I do not doubt the things I can visualize with my own eyes and observe, but I do cast doubt on the theories that cannot be proven with physical observation, like the Big Bang, abiogenesis, macro-evolution, etc.

Is this the reason why Shiloh, Tristan, and Enoch are staying out of this thread?

Well, I will be checking back to see who is going to refute this "absurdity." No reason for me to add anything because I think observation is scientific.

Observation is indeed a part of the scientific process.  Its how theories are proven or disproven.

That is absurd.  It's like asking if we beleive the Eiffel Tower really exists.

When did I say that a photo is not scientific evidence?   When did Tristen or Enoch say that a photo is not scientific evidence?
