    Even if the page hadn't stated that it was aimed at kindergarten to 4th graders, one would be expected to notice from the way it is written what audience it is pitched at. That you didn't, or so I gather from your quoted comment, is interesting.

    so that would be again poisoning the well,

    if information is correct it matters not to whom the audience is.

    right?

    Yes, the information that the definition changed is correct. No one disagrees with that. But you specifically said you are agreeing with AV1611VET. AV1611VET argues that there is a hidden and suspicious agenda for the definition change involving skulduggery and a rigged vote no less, and that by rights Pluto should still be classified as a planet. So, when you said you still agree with AV1611VET, this is what it is assumed you are still agreeing with. If not, if in fact you don't agree with with AV1611VET on these points, this might be a good time to say so, because the next question is: do you think the source you gave to support your agreement with AV1611VET, a NASA webpage aimed at children, is the right place to look for subtext?

    okay now that we settled the matter regarding poisoning the well with NASA and (4th grade). Now we can see a changing of the bars and saying that it is in fact correct. Thats a good thing. Now lets see what else we have here....conspiracy theory. I don't typically adhere to that btw. But I seem to see that there were many who believe that the definition of "planet" was not coined "scientifically" until 2006. http://www.christianforums.com/t7738535-6/#post63160077 One person at least believed that, so you must decline to say that "no one disagrees with that." Take note that NASA itself has stated the definition was changed, and gave motive. http://www.christianforums.com/t7738535-2/#post63175356

    No one said it wasn't correct. No bars have changed.

    So, finally, it turns out you don't actually agree with AV1611VET after all. That's OK, no one else does either. But you might have saved a lot of time if you hadn't said you agreed with him.

    If you want to argue that the definition didn't actually change, but was instead just properly scientifically defined for the first time, then super. But it's nothing more than pointless quibbling.

    OK, what 'motive' do you think you can glean from an instructional webpage for small children that is in any way worthy of further discussion?

    conspiracy theory has a lot or roots and I typically don't adhere to them. But sometimes I do. So I don't disagree entirely, I just don't believe that the government created the aids virus to kill the populus and to control numbers. (I just heard that one, I am sometimes embarrassed by this stuff, the other one I laugh at is chem trails). But I hope I don't step on anyones feet here. I do however believe in global conspiracy under the antichrist in the last days, it will involve money, and it will involve a mark, somehow it could be a verichip under the skin or something entirely different. But that is a Biblical conspiracy there. It also happens to be prophecy.

    either that, or a valid premise, it all depends. But I caught myself saying it again,

    so......

    it's contageous

    don't catch it!
