    Andrea (the lab manager) is awesome.

    I must confess. Any "wingeing" you hear from Brady Haran about how long this collab took is 100% true. We filmed this 4 years ago (!). He's bugged me to publish it every two months or so, so as a way to express my sincere apology I'd like to humbly request that you go watch his video and consider subscribing on Objectivity. Also, if you do so, please leave a comment about how it was worth the wait and he should quit his wingeing. Here's his video. (I didn't know about the Genesis Rock!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvhLBzsDwSQ

      Bill Martin + Jared = WORTHLESS

      You believe that billions of years ago there was a Big Bang, in which nothing exploded and created everything. The earth supposedly was formed 4.6 billion years ago as a hot ball of ROCK. So there we have your ROCK. Then it rained on this ROCK for millions of years creating a primordial soup. Then the soup MAGICALLY came alive about 3 billion years ago and man ultimately came into existence 3 million years ago. All thanks to a ROCK and some rain.

      It's sad and hard to believe that you call this science. None of this has ever been OBSERVED, TESTED, or DEMONSTRATED.

      Evolutionists hate to hear this but it is true: evolution is a religion. It calls for FAITH in many different areas and it does NOT belong in the science textbooks.

      BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA please keep responding your stupidity is hilarious!!!

      You're just another dumb dumb that believes he evolved from a rock!!! Ahahahaha To have such a STUPID BELIEF is this day and age is just stubborn and willfully ignorant. It's time to grow up, you're too old to believe your ancestors were rocks!! Let go of your childish ways.

      Trolling Moon Rock YouTube video comment threads just to try and convince people they evolved from a rock is idiotic and pathetic. Why would I listen to someone like yourself, especially someone that has faith they came from a rock?? Ahahahaha

      You have to make a choice. Either you're willfully ignorant or just plain dumb as rocks!! I like to believe there's hope for humanity and believe you're just willfully ignorant.

      Please give me hope and tell me you trust your five senses. Trusting your five senses is the gift of will that will set you free!!

      Please stop memorizing and regurgitating someone else's belief system. Especially if those beliefs came from dirty old pedophiles. Theres no need to memorize books. Your five senses are what make you human and intelligent. Don't go against them!!

      Bill Martin has no MATH SKILLS.

      I'm trying to help you not make a fool of yourself again.

      Here I'll make it real easy for you since simple high school geometry is OBVIOUSLY not your strong point.

      1. Go to your refraction calculator copy and paste the calculations to this comment thread.

      2. I will then HIGHLIGHT where your YOUR DELUSIONAL CALCULATOR increases THE SIZE OF EARTH BY 4,618.83 MILES by adding a multiplier to the radius of EARTH.

      Please do this for me. I really love ending my night with a laugh.

      Remember kiddo ...

      Bill Martin has no MATH SKILLS.

      BAHAHA of course refraction calculators will CALCULATE ANY DISTANCE you ask it, you dumb dumb.

      ... and that's where ball gobblers don't use common sense.

      ... and that's where a prediction calculator DOES NOT = REALITY.

      Here's why ... if an object is ALREADY COMPLETELY HIDDEN and BELOW THE HORIZON than it would be impossible for refraction to even refract.


      First you must calculate 2 equations COMPLETELY ...




      from there if the object is STILL IN VIEW than you can attempt to play with your silly refraction numbers.

      Bill Martin is delusional.

      bahaha of course REFRACTION exists silly girl but it sure can't magically levitate COMPLETELY HIDDEN OBJECTS 4 miles into the air and AROUND A BALL, you SILLY girl!

      Keywords for you = 'COMPLETELY HIDDEN' and 'AROUND a BALL.'


      Like I said you can't apply a refraction coefficient to an object that is already COMPLETELY HIDDEN and BELOW THE HORIZON.

                                After seeing that edit at the beginning..... the moon landing in the 60s was definitely faked. They could’ve easily done that with the cameras back then, of course with worse quality.

                                        NASA tells us to do this and that & take pictures .🙄 Tryna put a whole rock back together after breaking in so many pieces, again what is the point of the rock studying?and how does it benefits us? I think its a cool thing but...how don’t we know them NASA videos on the moon aren’t done like that place where your at with computer graphics 🤔, mhmm.

                                                New show idea: Drums, drummers, and drumming.

                                                Guitars we're done. What about drums? The way drummers maneuver their wrists to do fast rolls, the vibration of the drum heads, etc. in slow motion.

                                                How freaking epic would that be?

                                                      If you take the figurative blue pill all forms of fiction based entertainment fall flat. Everything you see as wisdom will sound like scary nonsense to others.Nasa does not steal the money, imo, they distribute it to solving future problems. However, they need creative minds, they need us who see deeply, creatively, with the cognitive abilities of treefrogs and humble entry into the world. We are the 🔑 you are missing, the "how did I not think of that" people. Understand that as your energy is spent trolling back, know how foolish it has all become and what you are wasting.

HOW did those men and women do it 50 years ago and we can't figure it out today?
