Glowball or not Glowball?

or not ...as the case may be.
I am sorry if my religious beliefs set your hackles on end but that's the way I see things. I know very well that you can say anything about creation and apply the logic back-end-first and the same argument will prove evolution.
Just remember where the right answers come from.

I replied to him:
Ha. That has clarified a point:
The tumult that is/was the recent series of hurricanes off Mexico/Hawaii is/was mirrored in the North Atlantic by twin blocks of the High in the mid Atlantic and the Low over Britain.
I must remember that that set up produced the world weather that hit every county's record books.
It reaches them from as far back as 1888. But it must be a fairly common cycle (for a rationalised definition of "fairly common".)
And its resolution will supply humongous amounts of insight into what actually causes "weather".
One thing is certain:
It ISN'T global warming!
Never mind the hundreds who died from the weather recently, the lad wants a nice day for a change.
Don't we all?
I'd been puzzling over the events in the North Atlantic. I was blind to what it meant. And now I realise that it was because it is a fairly common occurrence. But considerably less common than I am used to.
Take a look at what has been a theme for this week:
A system of High pressure in the middle of the North Atlantic. It is right on top of the Mid Atlantic Rige. And it has stayed there.
Then there is the Low pressure over Britain. That has been pretty determined too.
It is an accepted phenomenon that Britain gets hit with Lows every week or so. But they sweep through in a matter of hours.
Anything else is a "Blocked" situation.
It's like god has squeezed his finger over the pulse of the earth too hard.
It can't be an event caused by the moon as that moves at a thousand miles per hour over our heads.
It can't be the sun as that moves at more or less the same speed and it does it every day at the same time of day. (Ditto for the stars.)
And it can't be the planets because they are too far away.
Too far away for what?
Is astrology wrong?
Just because some of them were charlattans and the stuff written by newspaper columnists is worked out in the typing pool by people having a joke.
Nostrodamus wasn't at fault. It was the crowned heads that gave him credence that were at fault.
Before him some very intelligent people were studying astrology.
Then Newton came along and proved the mass of the planets was relatively small and their distances were relatively far. Too much of each to have much of an affect on the weather on earth.
Yet in the 19th century some astrologers were getting things right, occasionally. As far as I know.
If it isn't gravity ... can't it be the planets?
Would you believe that scientists actually still believe that the gravity of the moon is responsible for tides?
Forgive me if you believe that yourself.
But you are an idiot!!
