Soooo, someone can use ANY adjective they like to describe someone else as a person...as long as they qualify it with "you ignore the real truth as it is known to be!" and comments of

"you are a liar!" is okay also, in response to Farsight's observations! (am I missing the rationales here? The ones that justify calling someone an "a-hole" on an open forum?)

.....

"Calculus Rules All". Okay. Then please tell me why Mercury does not fall into the Sun, or fly off into the distance? Use all the calculus at your command to explain this simple, real feature

of the Solar System! (no...don't respond w/ "the eccentricities are calculated and known"...this is NOT what I want a mathematical explanation for)

My "lesser mortal self" wants an answer (calculus or otherwise) of the above question...go ahead, I will understand ANY equation you can write that explains the "why?"

(Thanks for reading!)
