Is that supposed to make me feel inferior? Or maybe I should quit asking these questions because another person on the internet doesn't agree with me. Yeah, you got me 9V. Kudos to you. You are awarded 9 million internetz.9V wrote:*facepalm*
I merely stated my interest on this topic, posing a different possibility than what most believe to be the only answer. You expressed your opinion, which lo and behold, is not the end all be all to the subject. It is still under hot debate among the archaeological community. Perhaps you should come to grips with the fact that you don't have all the answers.
Maybe you can explain precession to the board. You might talk about "wobble". As the earth is pulled by the Sun and the Moon, it is thought to wobble on it's axis, which causes the constellations to move backwards through the sky. However, this explanation would mean that the Earth's seasons would slowly change duration. That is to say, Spring would be longer for a period of time, and shorter for another. Yet, this is not the case. Why?
Another theory for precession is that our Sun is in an orbit of its own, with another star. This is called a binary star system. The Sun theoretically pulls the Earth along with it as it travels around a second, undiscovered star. This would also explain why precession isn't constant. Currently, it is speeding up. Binary star systems are very common in the Universe, so it is not a stretch to assume our own Sun is as such. If this is the case, and since our own Sun is a viable source of energy, who is to say we might not also gain some source of energy from the second star? Plants tend to thrive during Spring, and wither during Fall. How is it so inconceivable that human beings might have a similar connection to this second star?
Do you rag on a person for their religious beliefs? It's called tolerance, and ever since you got yourself banned from KVR and Propellerheads you have done nothing but push the limits of everyone's tolerance here. If you have nothing to contribute to this discussion, you should just push off.
