Does Mr. Buow's "science" also refute the authenticity and
precision demonstrated by:
- numerous spacecraft deployed successfully to and beyond the
- acceptably reliable heliocentric orbital models of observed
asteroids and comets, to a limited degree over many centuries?
With a little acceptance of the mass/gravity relationship, these
may be easier for such people to grasp using observation
histories and animations of accomplishments found on many
However, there may be more involved here than scientific
persuasion. When the biblical basis for belief is strongly
literal, anything perceived as contrary can feel threatening and
thus quickly rejected without reason. Since Buow can persuade
them with his "science", hopefully they will also understand
enough conventional science to doubt his authority without
doubting the Bible.
