  1. Only if you pretend refraction doesn't exist. You seem absolutely desperate to move on so go on, but I fail to see how you have proved your point. Infact you have proved mine.,
  2. Correction to many noughts: Even accepting the argument of obliquity this would only equate to a 0.00006-degree shift per year. Put simply it would take approx 1666 years for the Earth Tilt to move by 0.1 degrees. Exactly
  3. I would love to view myself from Ecuador, it would make things a lot easier. If Earth's tilt had moved how is it possible for both pole stars to be viewed at the Equator as witnessed? "Obliquity describes the tilt of the Earth's axis in relation to its orbital plane, which ranges from 22.1–24.5 degrees with a periodicity of ~41,000 years." Even accepting the argument of obliquity this would only equate to a 0.000006-degree shift per year. Put simply it would take approx 16666 years for the Earth Tilt to move by 0.1 degrees.
  4. Peter, I wish you well. The discussion with you is going nowhere, so let's take a break to reflect. I am not claiming Polaris is viewable from the Southern Hemisphere, just that it is visible on the Horizon at the Equator. No scientists dispute this.
  5. Can you provide any evidence at all to support your argument?
  6. Polaris is confirmed at 0° at the equator by eye witness and photographic evidence.
  7. 0.5 degrees is slightly less than the calculator but is a generally used amount. 33.20833333333333 arcmin divide by 60 = 0.55 degrees
  8. Yes Jesus was an avatar of God, Jah comes from Jehovah. I am still learning so please don't shoot me if I get anything wrong but basically Rastafarians believe Haile Selassie was the second incarnation of Jesus Christ. Lots of other exciting things I am learning such as the Ethiopians built the Pyramids, and the Rosetta Stone was a mistranslated version of Hieroglyphics.
  9. I used a 0.5 degree level of refraction at the Horizon level. This was a conservative calculation. You can check here http://wise-obs.tau.ac.il/~eran/Wise/Util/Refraction.html
  10. in answer to the op the rasta kind Jah lives!!!
  11. Patience, at the moment I am concentrating on the discussion on Polaris. In the meantime,
  12. Beautiful time-lapped image of The North and South Poles from Ecuador and witness statement to viewing them both. http://sguisard.astrosurf.com/Pagim/SGU-From-pole-to-pole-1200x800-cp8.jpg http://sguisard.astrosurf.com/Pagim/From_pole_to_pole.html
