This is typical of the disingenuous logic of certain critics who seem not to have actually bothered to read the book at all. The book makes it very clear that this reference is about observational astronomy i.e. the size of the moon's disc seen the sky is the same size as the sun because it is 400 times smaller but 400 times closer to the earth. The book goes on to deal with the relative mass of the two bodies in some detail.
The numbers and calculations given can be easily checked by any reader with average numerical skills. This book is indeed challenging but a little bit of honesty and objectivity would go a long way here. My I recommend that future reviewers forget thier prejudices and read the book with an open mind.
Two criticisms: 1. The book cover, and several areas in the book state that the Moon is 1/400 the size of the moon. This should have read as the 'diameter' of the moon's disk and the Sun's disk for clarity. 2. Page 41 last paragraph states that the Moon's circumference in Megalithic Yards was divided INTO the total of seconds of arc in the earths orbit.Read more ›
