I am Christian. The first careful astronomical method to see how far the stars are, is simple parallax..... like looking at your outstretched finger with one eye, then the other eye without moving your head. You can see that your finger shifts its position as compared to objects at a far distance, when switching from your left eye to your right eye. But in place of your eyes(just over an inch apart), astronomers use their telescopes & compare the stars, as they shifted position as the Earth orbited the sun, from one side of the sun in Earth's orbit to the other side of sun in Earth's orbit(about 185,000,000 million miles apart).
People thought it would be easy to find stars that shifted their positions. But the stars are so far away, the parallax shift is smaller than the sharpness of telescopes in use 3 or 4 hundred years ago. The first successful determination of a star's distance from its parallax occurred in 1838. The star 61 Cygni was estimated to be 10.4 light-years away(~60+ trillion miles away), pretty good, compared to the present determination by far more accurate methods which is 11.36 light years. A light-year is the distance light travels in a year(5,850,000,000,000 miles), about 6 trillion miles.
The Parallax method in the Hipparcos spacecraft determines star distances to the present day most accurate parallax position at distances as far as 1600 light-years. With accurate distances to thousands of near-by stars, the characteristics of those stars, such as brightness, temperature, color, types of stars are refined to a great extent. Using the knowledge gained by parallax, of the brightness, temperature, color & types of stars, distances to other same type of stars can be determined to millions, hundred millions & even billions of light-years away.
You know God does not fool us. God is helping us to know His Greatest Grandeur, the Grandeur of his Son, Jesus Christ. And to back up the grandeur of Jesus Christ, God gave us the ability to accurately (sometimes) know the glory of the heavens over our heads.
But the telescopes even today are incapable of seeing millions of miles away. The telescopes even today from space within ships would have taken a lot of guesswork, and being innaccurate. And I'm sure some stars are closer to use than other stars as well.

The very closest star is our sun. It is ~ 97,300,000(100 million) miles away from us. Just with our own eyes were can see other individual stars, far far beyond our sun, well in excess of 7000 million million miles away.

From the tops of mountains, using just their eyes, trained people have seen galaxies 70 million million million miles away. Of course, telescopes can detect massively erupting galaxies more than a thousand times further into space than that.

God gave us the universe to see AND to understand. Please, go to your nearest astronomy club, where amateur astronomers love to teach the sky to people, families, & everyone who love the stars.

But how big are the other stars? Mathematics could also be involved in the measuring, it might not be that simple. And the size the stars are at, it might be harder to measure them even from a telescope. And the distance they are at from the sun, and how much smaller they are said to be, they would look so small from the earth we wouldn't even see then, right?

You are correct. Soon the answer to your question will be more scientific science fiction useless cut and paste babble. They really really don't know.Do you wonder why they refuse to show their own work?

How is the weather your way? Here the Northern States are suffering from global warming. Records snow fall and -35 deg. wind chill temperature. Therefore, as not to confuse them the ambient temperature is actually -17 deg.+- a few degrees.

Why is it mostly said to be in california and especially america global warming is an issue? Are liberals trying to manipulate people into thinking it is america and their own country being attacked by global warming to try to make people feel more desperate to support the libs?

It is all about the money. More fear out there makes more money. It is a cycle of weather nothing new. They post but never show their own published peer reviewed work. You know that higher educated club of peer reviewed scientific science fiction.

Its a bit annoying having to encounter liberal arguments when they provide no facts. Some claims they make are unsupported and act like they are true, but generally their flaws can be spotted if looked for carefully, and its pretty easy work to refute them too.

Yes, look for their key words like opinion, predictions and forecast.

You lost them when you started talking scientifically.

Obviously neither of them knows trigonometry, nor the story how the ancient Greek scientist Eratosthenes estimated the size of the Earth using trig around 200 BC.

Maybe PHD agrees with the other poster that the Earth is a mere 6000 years old, too

No I don't agree with any of your scientific science fiction cut and paste useless babble. Do show your own entire published peer reviewed work. Now run run run.

Actually we did lose them, not because they speak scientifically, but because their science fiction nonsense is so incomprehensable to an ordinary person.

They don't appeal to an ordinary person they appeal to each other. They can't argue the topic by their own work so they use the cut and paste scientific science fiction useless babble method .Oh some of the Northern States here are recording wind chill of -85 deg today. Gee more global warming.
