Visiting these forums and the injustice carried out using the name of astronomy has affected me in a way I read only in holocaust literature as those first men encountered the physical atrocities of 7 decades ago.There is a dismay that people can act in a way that races to the bottom of human traits by a craving or a greed that only those who act out of self-perpetuation could adhere to,in fact there is little reason at all to it.
There is no reason why a society would choose to create an imbalance between rotations and days as you are doing now and as representative of the empirical culture other than that society never thought things through in the first place.Once seen through February 29th as a rotation and day that encloses 4 orbital circuits,there would exist something of a brief hiatus where the run-on of the flawed agenda would be overtaken by the correct principles rushing in to ringfence the error but in a decade that hasn't happened and doesn't appear to be happening.
The 'sidereal vs solar day' is late 17th century fiction that exists only in the imagination as is the wandering analemma sun or the rotating moon,an empirical manufacturing machine that composes solutions as it sees fit no only without physical considerations but more often in defiance of them.There is no reason why people would do this other than the intellectual treason of a few dollars/euro and an ill-begotten reputation but from experience it is far worse than this,you don't even know you are doing wrong nor have the type of capabilities to make things stable and that is why I turn to holocaust literature.
What happens when the day comes and nobody affirms that the temperature rises and falls within a 24 hour period due to the rotating Earth and each daily temperature fluctuation keeps in step with the rotation of the Earth ?.That day has come for me as I look on at your response reflective of your empirical culture.
