Thank You Sheikh Bandar Al Khobairi for telling that ‘Earth is Stationary’

Recently Social Media was filled with news of the Saudi cleric Sheikh Bandar al Khobairi explaining his theory that the Earth is stationary and does not revolve around the Sun. I was also tempted to comment and share.

This was what I wanted to comment “It is critical for the well being of our human race to invent a time machine as soon as possible so that we can send such morons back in time so they can learn” But then one question refrained me from doing that.

“What should be the answer to counter him?”

Well we all know that earth revolves around the sun and we know it is not stationary and we know that science has proved it. But how many of us can scientifically answer back in simple terms or in a manner that claims we know exactly what we are talking about?

I know there are many who would know but I realized I was not one among them and I realized I cannot mock him without having a clear answer. I know it might sound absurd and many of you reading will stop reading now and say. What..? Vinod is such an idiot, he does not know how the earth rotates..? he cannot explain it…? Well honestly NO, I have learned it in school, but I just do not remember and if you remember then great… Sometimes we have to be reminded of what we already know than learning new things…

So I refrained my comments and shares and and went to my friend Google and found these few interesting articles and I wanted to share with you all. Of course only if you are like me and don’t have an answer yet think the cleric is wrong because you know that someone  (or many) knows the answer 🙂 Or in other words these are the details based on which we should say the sheikh was wrong 🙂

Growing up I was never a big science buff, though I had good grades, I never had that wow feeling as I studied, I am not sure if it was me or how I looked at classroom education in general. But I have witnessed that while I fooled around, sat through class and got grades there were some kids who were immersed in science.

Now why am I thanking this sheikh for saying something that is so absurd? There are two reasons for Thanking him.

First is the importance and relevance of questioning. Science has progressed to where we are now because people in history asked questions that at times seemed improbable and immaterial. Then through experimentation they found answers to many questions and in the process they also proved some questions as absurd in itself. These questions remained absurd from then on and no one asked them. Proving a question is absurd does not make the question invalid in a learning process, because that absurd question is equally important while teaching the answer.

In a learning process kids and adults alike should be filled with questions because that is how they understand answers better, answers become solid and never to forget. We live in a world where we are all being asked for answers and never for questions. Things are changing in the corporate world where the price and value of an important question is becoming more and more prominent and relevant.

In schools I do not know how many kids are being asked to go and find questions instead of answers. In 2014 there was a malayalam movie called “101 Questions” a movie in which the teacher asks the student to find 101 questions about the world we live without worrying about the answer, one question a day and in the process how the kid learns about the world around him.

Questions we ask teach us more than answers we are told. I think Sheikh’s explanation should be added to the school texts and then countered. Not just his, but all absurdity that over time guided mankind to the answers we have today. Kids should be allowed to walk in the footsteps of history and not stand in the present and look back. While writing this I also realized that I was not very inquisitive as a kid and did not have much questions and always accepted what was delivered by the teachers. But no age is late to ask questions and no question is a stupid question 🙂

The second reason for thanking the sheikh is that he was not asking a question but explaining something that showed the world that a grown up cleric who is filled in with his religious texts can be a big embarrassment to his country and the people of his own religion. I think it is important for people like the sheikh to come out and redefine science with their religious understanding so the peopel within and outside the religion and understand the difference between religion and science.

So Thank You sheikh for explaining that earth is stationary with so much conviction and I am sure that should have made many people learn more and find out you were wrong. And I will ask people to give you the first ticket on a time machine when it is invented, of course with a discount 🙂

  1. I’m a simple-minded TRUTH seeker, simple-minded at that, but I also like to see things, and think about them in a logical way to see what makes more sense, and to me, so far what I’ve been discovering and looking at, with a very open mind, have come to the conclusion that we been been lied to in most everything we hear and see from the government through the news media, but through the wonderful internet, that is changing…thank GOD!
    This reply also has to do with a STATIONARY EARTH.

    NASA and the rest of the snakes, (cause that’s all they are, VIPERS, and if you don’t believe me, well, NASA begin showing us that that’s what they really are, (literally!) with their own NASA logo, where you can clearly see the tongue of a snake, or reptile, across the logo, and which is so very obvious, and also…RED!) conditioned you and the rest of us to believe the earth is round from the very beginning when we first start attending school for the very first time as children, at least here in the USA. The very first thing they do, is make sure we all are faced or confronted with a globe in the classroom, and which is supposed to represent the earth as being a globe, and to also start conditioning us to believe that is how it really looks like.
    It is round, and so they start teaching us that that is the way the earth looks, according to them, even though they, (the teachers, (and, the rest of us at that young age) really don’t know for a FACT how the earth really looks like).
    But there are many videos out there already which are proving to us, and have already PROVEN, that the earth is indeed FLAT!!! At least that’s the way it looks from the Balloon releases quite a few people have taken the time to experiment with, as you will see for yourself.
    They don’t only do it for entertainment purposes, but also because, (at least many of them) just don’t believe NASA, nor can take them at their word, as to what they say or do, and so those individuals start looking for the real TRUTH themselves, as to whether the earth is really round, or if it is FLAT through their balloon experiments. Those, unmanned, balloon releases, or balloon-flights, have been fitted with cameras, with what I like calling: TRUTH-TELLING LENSES, instead of the fish-eyed lenses, or which are also called wide-angle lenses, and WHICH NASA LOVES USING. Many of those people just like using fish-eye lenses because they like watching curves on everything they photograph or videotape, but there are some SNAKES out there amongst us who, most definitely, have an agenda against us, cause they have something to do with NASA, or the government, so they make their own videos and balloon flights with cameras fitted with, what I would say, TWIST AND CURVE THE TRUTH lenses…or simply… LYING LENSES!…and all to continue the DECEPTION!
    The TRUTH telling lenses, without a shadow of a doubt, reveal the REAL TRUTH, of how the earth really looks like. I would really like it if you would take a look at this particular video, and you will see what I mean.
    Now, honestly, if you, yourself, see something different than what many of us out here have seen with that and other videos, than all I can say, (politely) is that you are totally blind, closed minded, or just prefer to continue drinking the cool aid NASA, and the rest of the government continues throwing at you, and all the rest, who insist the earth is a globe, and that it is revolving, and also, that EVERYTHING is as they say it is…but which couldn’t be further from the TRUTH!
    I hope not. I really do hope that this kind of videos really open your eyes brother, and really make you think about everything they do or say, (through the corrupt media, which is bought and controlled by the government) and not be so closed minded, cause that is what they want from us, and it is the most horrible thing for any person to be living with…a CLOSED MIND, and just thinking from inside the box!
    As you are watching the video, please keep in mind of the altitude, (75,000 ft…WOW!) to which the balloon rises before finally bursting. It went 15,000 ft HIGHER, than the Concorde plane ever flew, and which was the highest any corporate plane has ever flown. The highest corporate jets now fly is, 65,000 ft, and from that altitude, we most definitely would be able to see what the horizon really looks like, and that is, that there is absolutely NO perceptible CURVE on the earth whatsoever. I know that you will no doubt also notice that my friend, that there is no freaking CURVE as they say there is.

    (According to many so-called expert’s calculations, the curve of the earth can, and should be seen from ANY altitude…that’s what THEY say?)

    As a matter of fact brother, I’m pasting for you TWO URLs as evidence of what I say…K? They are short videos. That other one I am also pasting for you, is from NASA themselves K, and it is very NEW? Keep that in mind please, (that it is NEW, and that it is from the NASA HEROES). That second video is the one from the Dragon rocket they barely launched on April 15th of this year 2015. On that one, you will see that, at a particular time during the Dragon rocket flight, they, (NASA), you, (in case you also saw it) I, and all the rest of the people who saw the flight as it was happening in real time, clearly could see, how the earth really looks from up there.
    At first when the rocket has already gone up far enough, and pretty high, they show us a supposed curved earth. there is no doubt they were shooting video of the flight through a fish-eye lens which is placed close to the rocket window and jet exhaust. Even the window is probably convex or concave. It might just be the fish-eyed lens by itself, (that’s what they love using to deceive the people of how the earth looks). But, even concave/convex windows, just as the fish-eye lens does, at a certain point, (such as from the center of the window or fish eye lens ) show how the real picture, or environment, REALLY looks like, and so again, at some particular time during the flight, they go to a shot where, WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT…the earth looks as FLAT as a ruler from one side of the screen, (at about a 45 degree angle K?) to the other.
    I put a yardstick against the TV at that particular time on the flight timer, and sure enough, the Horizon is as FLAT as the yard stick I had put against the screen. Do that yourself and you will most definitely see what I mean..
    But also notice how they don’t leave those FLAT horizon shots for too long, (because they love teasing us, poking us, mocking us, with short bits and pieces of GOLDEN-NUGGET of TRUTHS), then they continue with their regular BULLSHIT!. Also notice that after they show us the truth for a few seconds, (and also a bunch of BULLSHIT that’s going on in the so-called COMMAND center, where you will see that they are doing nothing but looking every which way but loose, and not really giving a shit about the rocket flight) they then again, start showing a ridiculous curve, (of what I call half of a white egg-shell) and which is supposed to be the curved earth. That shot is also a bunch of BULLSHIT my friend. They just love doing this kind of CRAP to everyone. Unfortunately, many still continue to believe their BS no matter what.

    Anyway buddy, since it has been demonstrated that the earth is really FLAT, (by both NASA, through the SpaceX DRAGON rocket launch, and regular individuals through their balloon flight tests) we are ALSO, now able to say, and perhaps without any doubt, that it is TRUE, or that there is a real BIG POSSIBILITY, that the earth is indeed also…STATIONARY!!!!

    (Here are the URLs for those videos…check them out and enjoy, and please let me know what you think brother…K?

    Oh, and just to let you know, I also am not good at explaining things in a technical, sophisticated, scientific way, especially with a bunch of mathematical equations and all that, what I also consider to be a bunch of BULLSHIT, cause many times, much of that CRAP-math doesn’t show real true solutions or answers. Their calculations are many times just full of holes, and with shit, and that is why they continually have to be going back to the drawing board, as the saying goes.

    The first one is called: HIGH ALTITUDE BALLOON, and it is 15 minutes worth-while short.

    This second one is called: SpaceX Dragon Commercial Cargo Ship…etc., etc., from NASA, and it is also bout 15 minutes…please do check them out and tell me what you think.

    Best regard, take care, and GOD BLESS!
