When someone says, "Science teaches such and such," he is using the word incorrectly. Science doesn't teach anything; experience teaches it.Richard Feynman, 1966 NSTA Convention, NYC
I live in New Jersey.
If you spend an hour or two watching the sun rise, you'll notice that it rises sideways here.
If you watch the stars looking east, they rise sideways as well.
A huge problem with what we call science education is that we think we've educated our children because they "know" the Earth spins on its axis, and that it revolves around the sun.
Yet the few that notice the stars, the curious ones, are still surprised when some stars rise sideways faster than others, some travel in circles, and one doesn't move at all.
You can show this on a computer, but that's pointless, because on a computer I can make stars do anything I, a human, want them to do.
The Earth spins. Imagine that.
Now go convince your kids.
